Combined deep groove with sweeping pads, understated repeating drums and ordered hypnotic vocals. Peaceful splendor.
Fueled by an afternoon of hot tubs, iced tea and slap bass, this track is driven by hats and claps, and has a groovy vibe with some gentle scat vocals. Recently released on Gadi’s new vinyl only label Double Standards.
Experience a trio of Wolf + Lamb artists in London on May 8th at their secret warehouse party.
A short journey of Doomwork‘s ‘Ride The Horse’ remix. Cut up brass samples over a deep bopping bass with a hoof clacking build. Smiley sun fun!
Arto Mwambé is Frankfurt duo Chris Beisswenger and Phillip Lauer. Their recent remix of Osborne’s ‘Wait A Minute‘, as featured on Spectral Sound‘ (Ghostly’s dancefloor imprint) various artist compilation, is deep and groovy with sweeping air and funky vocoded melody.
‘The Horizon Line/Ghostly By Night’ is a two piece compilation by Ghostly International, consisting of ten classics remixed and ten forthcoming originals.
This remix by Shigeto starts where the original left off, but alterations include minimal clicking percussion, alternating synth melody and an occasional low bass roll. Peace.
Todd Edwards with his cut-up samples, groovy basslines and four-on-the-floor garage beats is back with a brand new EP ‘I Might Be’, including four remixes by a variety of producers. Here’s Joy Orbison’s smooth 4/4 remix and a flute classic.
New York based producer FaltyDL aka Drew Lustman, former sushi chef, produces a technical garage sound. From the XLR8RTV artist insight he proclaims his love for jungle but found it too fast and careless to produce. This resulted in a slowing down to 130-135bpm – quoting Scott Garcia ‘It’s A London Thing‘ with its sexy shuffle and rhythm as a precedent of influence.
Here’s his recent remix of Mount Kimbie’s airy atmopsheric track ‘Serged’. Original mystic sounds but with rhythmic beats and bouncing bass, chopped up and arranged.
eLDOKO aka Tom Elkington grew up with non-electronic music but curiosity soon led him to a new love for djing. After moving to Oxford and securing regular dj slots, he progressed onto a dedication for production. To date a series of original tracks and remixes that cover a range of downtempo electronica, techno and house have been completed. Expect melodic sample rich songs with a sprinkle of jazz to dance to or simply enjoy on a stroll.
‘Run For The Trees’ EP consists of three tracks and has received some interest for release in the near future. These two offerings show some insight into the spectrum of sound we can expect from Tom in the future.
Swing house with saxophones. Filtered build for the release of an ear easy warble bass.

Furthermore here’s some irony, Tom is co-organising a small weekend festival ‘Gottwood‘ this June in the Welsh forest of Carreglwyd. No hassle, no rules, just a physically and visually uplifting stride, towards the perfect weekend away from reality. Artists include Max Cooper, DJ Format, David E. Sugar, TEED and an Igloo hosted by Trouble Vision where I will be playing.
René Ménard – from ‘Le livre des arbres’
“In the forest, I am my entire self. Everything is possible in my heart just as it is in the hiding places in ravines. Thickly wooded distance seperates me from moral codes and cities.”
