Playlist of the week #82

After two months of standby, the playlist is back for the summer. We coast from a 1979 soul/funk band to a psychedelic rock track by Steve Gunn & Mike Cooper. The journey will cross the years, continents but also types and technics of music.

Tell us more about this image
Well, this photo is from a series called “Renton”.
Renton is a town I created, filled with characters and moments that when pieced together, represent what I feel, see, and hear when I think of the 1970’s in Midwest America. This is my attempt at wanting to experience a time in a town that no longer exists, simply because the time has passed. Each image is delicately planned and posed before being shot based on these fictional characters in my head.

Interview / Chris Lloyd – Silly Robots

We asked the London-based illustrator, Chris Lloyd to introduce his animation series ‘Silly Robots’ and describe some of them.


Interview / Maysgold

Interview with the french duo, Maysgold – currently based in Paris.


Interview / Jason Koxvold – Knives

Interview with the British photographer, Jason Koxvold (b. 1977, Liege) – based between Brooklyn and Upstate New York.

His latest series, ‘KNIVES’, is a truthful look at a rural community victim of the effects of globalisation they didn’t had any control over – this documentary is also deeply linked to a typological study of knives, whose industry was the basis of the region’s economy. The story of this town is the story of many more in the USA and the in the world.


Interview / Aleksandir

Interview with the Turco-British music producer Aleksandir.


Playlist of the week #81

Welcome to the new format of the playlist of the week. It’s time for us to extend the spectrum of these compilations. We always wanted to share with you new and/or unknown artists. Today, we aim to link these artists with classical and old school ones. That is why we choose Soundsgood to help us gather sounds from different music platforms on the web.


Today, we pay tribute to the Music Magasine ‘Stamp The Wax’ and their Monday Morning Mixtapes. We introduce the American organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, the Indian musician Charanjit Singh, maybe the earliest Acid music producer, the Turkish composer Özdemir Erdogan and the amazing and breathtaking Early Summer composed by the self-taught pianist Ruy Fukui. After this journey through ages and culture, we take a refreshment with some Lo-Fi Hip-Hop, Electronica, Chill Trap and an IDM track premiered by Stamp The Wax.
