The other thread is quite heavy on golden oldies and classics that new songs always feel at odds. Maybe a thread for brand new and recent releases would be more appropriate? I still consider myself young at 35 around these parts. Straight off the back of a huge debut on Cold Tonic and a monster 12" on Feel My Bicep comes the debut EP from the New Zealand wonderboys, Sandboards. 4 Sun drenched bangers merging the elements of Larry Heard-esc sounds with Shep Pettibone style basslines. Something for everyone on this EP. Released: 11 Aug 2017
If Miami Vice was getting remade today or I could've had a say in the 2006 movie these are my choice of songs and direction I'd take the show. They're not going to popular releases so I don't know how well these will be received but here goes. The less well known the better and all from no earlier than 2005 to present. There definitely won't be any Com Truise or Kavinsky who get far too much-undeserved attention as it is. First five... #1 Manual - Marbella (Live) (2015 reissue) This entire album by Manual is dripping with a Miami Vice feel. I could pick multiple songs from it but went with this one for the strong uplifting guitar to start us off. When it hits 3:38. It's just beautiful, imagine those crashing waves and speedboats. Also, check out Blue Shibuya Dream and Sal Paradise if you like this. #2 Am-Boy - Moving Up In The World (2007) This is edging into the whole retro genre of Tycho, Casio vs Japan breed of artists but still retains firming looking forward rather than too concerned with the past. #3 High Klassifeld - Radar (2014) Something more hip with a distinctive choppy beat for when our characters are cruising the streets. Released on Fool's Gold. #4 Das Komplex - Openwork Socks (2016) This has that Risky Business Tangerine Dream influenced synth. The drop at 2:39 = heaven for me. #5 Sasha - View 2 (2016) One of the world's most respected DJ's hailing from England and great producer too. This is an impressive ambient album that's stood out this year.
