CHOONS OF THE DAY: "ALCHEMY" + "BLACK SCORPIO" - TĀLĀ


Last night Aesop shared the official video for TĀLĀ's mesmerising new single "Alchemy" which matched the utter-brilliance of her epic "Serbia" earlier on this year. Video by Studio Moross.



Looks like I might have forgotten to post about "Black Scorpio" another ace track from this promising and genre-bending producer. Here it is:



"Alchemy" EP is out 1st December 2014. Pre-order your 12" HERE!

SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION [20000 FANS EDITION]: Shrem's Top 20 Most Blogged About Artists So Far


I am over the moon! Still remember taking a screen-shot when my SHREM'S CAROUSEL OF ÜBER NERDINESS blog hit its first 100 followers. I never in my wildest dreams thought back in January 2010 that I would ever be able to reach such audience especially considering how nerdy and annoyingly subjective I tend to be. 20000 likes!!! AAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHH! Such a milestone for me. Here's a massive THANK YOU to every single one of you who encouraged me to start blogging in the first place and to all of you kind muso friends for visiting my little musical carousel, sharing, liking commenting, discovering stuff, criticising me and in general supporting my biggest hobby ever: music selecting, reflecting and collecting. "Music Selector is the Soul Reflector" as one of my biggest idols Lady Miss Kier once said... Here's a special anniversary post documenting Top 20 Artists I worshipped, cherished and blogged about the most since the creation of this blog.

CHOON OF THE DAY: "MIRACLE CIRCLE" - PellyColo / ペリーコロ


PellyColo (ペリーコロ) is a Japanese dj from Tokyo whose sounds oscillate vibrantly between nu-disco, boogie and synth-pop. The geeky producer serves his music with a healthy dose of old-school vibes, delectable synthesisers, vocoders and contagiously enthusiastic melodies. "Miracle Circle" stood out immediately for me when I heard his "Temptation" EP for the first time. Out now via Bandcamp and iTunes.

SHREM'S NEWBIES BUT TO-BE'S: "Take Me Back" - GL


Electro funk, freestyle and 80's R&B at its most uncannily retro! Melbourne’s cosmic-funk revivalists and their soundtrack to eternal leisure, as GL introduce themselves on their official Facebook page, is a dream come true for all of you who crave those sweet 80's rare grooves as ravenously as me. The Australian duo's freshly released self-titled EP brings the ever-present fashion for 80's music to its peak with its irresistible melodies reminiscent of those flavoursome Janet Jackson, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam and D'Train gems from back in the day. Passed on to me by my muso-friend Pyrotek from No Snobs Allowed, GL enter a high spot on my personal lists of the ones to watch in the upcoming months. Here's the impossibly delicious "Take Me Back" for an appetiser before you get that 12" into your basket.

SHREM'S LATE MONDAY NIGHT SESSIONS: "ALENA" - Yumi Zouma


Do you remember the scrumptiously relaxing sound of Yumi Zouma's debut EP which stole our hearts with its lush production at the beginning of the year? Now the low-key New Zealanders drop another sublime dream pop single "Alena" which sounds both cosy and euphoric. Those sweet harmonies are there again. The almost nostalgic end-of-summer feel of the song is mixed up with a subtle invitation to dance. Another winner for the impressively eclectic mine of international talents that is Cascine.

MARK BELL (LFO) R.I.P.


A true wizard of beats, a magician of techno, a pioneer, a legend, a producer like no other... Rest in Peace Mark Bell.
