An explanation of NTEIBINT’s playlist selection:
These are my all time favourites and current influences
This came out in 2003 and i have to say i still listen to this track. “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” was a great album and had a ton of P-Funk influences
Speaking of P-Funk, Bootsy Collins is among the leaders, another all time favourite of mine. Keep in mind that this track was released 30 years before OutKast’s “Protype”!
Uwe Schmidt (Atom™, Atom Heart, Senor Coconut) is a genius. A real genius. From the early 90s till today he has written and released tons of music, super diverse sounds / experiments. I’m really proud to have my name next to his (and Jamie Lidell’s) on that “Little Bit Of Feel good” vinyl, released back in 2008 on Warp Records.
Speaking of Jamie Lidell, a great example of Jamie’s songwriting and lyric technique is his latest (post Warp Records) release, “Pink Light”. Such a beautiful song.
This was released in 2014, on Chromeo’s latest album “White Women”. To be honest, I didn’t like the album but loved this track! Great arrangement and melodies, perfect for late night drive time.
You can’t ignore this guy. His approach and the way he digested The Prince sound is extraordinary. The bridge part (with the sax solo) is a heartbreaker!
I was listening to this track throughout the summer, Jamie Woon is extremely talented and his 2015 comeback album was worth the wait. Highly addictive music!
A good friend told me that this is the track of the year. Double that, album of the year! Super clever arrangement and production techniques
Surely on my Top 10 list of 2015 is the album by UMO. Multi-Love is the stand out track and its just a glimpse of the album’s gems.
Going obscure and Greek now, the late Demis Roussos sings “I Dig You”, from his 1976 album called “Magic”. Produced and arranged by Vangelis, It’s kind of a folk disco song, a great arrangement and all time favourite, one should definitely check the original Vangelis version under his Odyssey pseudonym
I had the opportunity to remix the last single from Chet Faker’s epic debut album last year (called 1998) and fell in love with his vocals (i remember spending a lot of time listening just to the accapella!). This track is part of a great collaboration with the charismatic, and part of DFA Records, producer Marcus Marr. A definite summer jam!
Brothers, Belgians and a production duo with endless possibilities, I love Soulwax for their eclectic musical taste and extraordinary production techniques. As a bonus this is a Tame Impala song
Belgium’s Eskimo Recordings (my musical home) is surely one of the few labels that managed to keep their trademark sound and evolve. Tim Sullivan (This Soft Machine) is a musician and DJ of great taste, “This Place Was Meant For Me” is one of the stand out Eskimo tracks of the year for me, expect great things in 2016!
