FLORENCE + THE MACHINE – YOU'VE GOT THE LOVE (Indie/2-step/Garage – UK)

Florence and the Machine is an alternative rock band from England. It is the recording name of Florence Welch and a collaboration with other artists who provide backing music for her voice.

Florence and The Machine’s music has received praise across the British music media, especially from the BBC who played a large part in Florence and The Machine’s rise to prominence by promoting her as part of BBC Introducing. This led to her playing a number of music festivals in 2008, including Glastonbury and T in the Park. The band’s debut album, Lungs was released on 6 July 2009, and was at the number 2 position for its first five weeks in the charts, behind Michael Jackson.

Check out the track ‘You’ve Got the Love’ just below. This version is a rework by British band The xx and it really turns the song on its head. The result is quite amazing in its simplicity and when you listen to it once you won’t be able to get it out of head…

This second remix is very original in that it has a very linear structure and emphasizes the vocals, thereby giving a sense of urgency to the whole song. Have a listen…

THE OFF KEY HAT – EMERGENCY CALLING (Disco – UK)

The Off Key Hat is Darren Morris and Leon Mayes. Darren has been working with the likes of Tim Goldsworthy (DFA), Ashley Beedle, David Holmes and Jagz Kooner (to name but a few), Leon does nothing but Dig. Darren and Leon hooked up a few years ago almost by chance during some down time in Brighton.

The Off Key Hat - Emergency Calling     

The Off Key Hat have released four vinyls on hot UK label Dissident since the beginning of their collaboration in 2008. Their first release, “Emergency Calling”, hit the stores two years ago but it hasn’t aged a bit. The track is a futuristic disco piece that sounds as timeless as can possibly be. Its grinding beat, slow-paced synths and soft vocals by Michelle Manetti work their magic on the listener, taking him back to the 70s on a delightful musical journey. “Emergency Caling” is sexy and seductive and it’s the perfect song for a lazy sunday afternoon. Check it out!
