Alice Francis is the new cool swing era’s First Lady, and not just for that she is one of the most exciting newcomers of the year. If it wasn’t for her unique voice, bringing together modern pop with the clear note of jazz greats like Billie Holiday or Eartha Kitt and a good dosage of acting talent, it’s for her extraordinary talents as a songwriter. Together with her musical counterpart and producer Goldielocks, Alice has created a unique sound that celebrates their fascination for Josephine Baker, the Charleston tradition or jazz from the 1920s and adds bits and pieces of hip hop and electronica for good measure. The sound of the roaring twenties, crafted with the stylistic devices of the 21st century. The standout remix is by the figurehead of electro-swing, Parov Stelar, while Milk + Sugar have also been assigned for remix duties.

The two brothers known as Kyodai strike back, showcasing their phenomenal musical education on Local Talk. What else to expect from a duo that gained respect from musical heavy weights such as Masters At Work, Jimpster, Gilles Peterson and releases on Freerange & Nitelife.
On ‘Breaking’ the beats and bassline are in constant motion, building the track with subtle hooks into an epic breakdown which tears the track apart and then rebuilds it even bigger.
The 90’s mix is a stripped version of the original, with “that” organ hook we all love and refuse to stop dancing to, accompanied with strings and percussion that ties the whole track together and brings back memories of a hot and sweaty sunday afternoon at Body & Soul, in the 90’s!

Felguk’s new track, ‘Move It Right,’ is a funky, vocal-driven collaboration with Sirreal that strays from the Brazilian duo’s customary massive Electro feel and edges more towards something straight out of Studio 54. Autotuned vocals, horns, and wonky guitar riffs complement Sirreal’s catchy vocals in this newly unveiled, surprisingly lighter side of Felguk.
