Hold On (Live Version)
Apparently SBTRKT played a live session at the BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge today. Young Turks, the label of SBTRKT, The XX and Jack Penate (+ more) uploaded two track from the live session on Soundcloud. One of the tracks is ‘Hold On’ from SBTRKT’s self-titled album. The live version is twice as long as the album version. But as if it were a good old long-player, it stays interesting untill the last second.

The other track uploaded by Young Turks is titled ‘Blue Cassette’. It’s SBTRKT’s cover on Friendly Fires, the track originally comes from the Friendly Fires’ second album ‘Pala’. The track is perfect for Aaron Jerome’s voice, giving it an entirely different atmosphere.
This original is over 8 months old, but this week the download option got unlocked. Good reason to re-visit ARTK‘s Soundcloud page. The track is titled ‘Drizzle’ and fits that Bass Music/House/Garage we’re hearing a lot lately. Very strong production.
Around The World (Richard Earnshaw & Mike Scot Re-Edit)
Richard Earnshaw is an understanding in (old school) house music. Search for his name on Youtube, especially if you’re from the UK. Hed Kandi-ish Nostalgia guaranteed. Together with Mike Scot he recently made a remix on Daft Punk’s ‘Around The World’. Daft Punk’s classic together with some piano chords from that soulful/deephouse era: Win.
