Friendships turns ‘I’m Scared You’ll Never Leave’ into a pumping juke track with a lot of motion, moving through the draggy pads and sluggish vocals into a high energy kick drum workout.

Don’t know much about Vekta, but this tune Sunlight is a refreshingly bright and positive take on the wonky sound, so often bogged down in darkness and distortion. Free download from the Last Dance London EP.

I think the real strength of this is that you can’t tell how commercial or how alternative it wants to be. It straddles the two pretty well.

This new tune from Jamie XX, king of the bass-hipsters and one half of ‘the xx’, fits a fine, languid summer headspace. After the first xx album came out with it’s indie-folk-with-an-MPC sound, Jamie XX pretty quickly made it clear that he was into electronica, with a few dynamite mixtapes and remixes, including his infamous full-album remix of Gil Scott Heron’s ‘I’m New Here’. This is his first entirely solo production effort, and it’s extremely pleasant. Using some screwed James Blake-esque vocals and a drum pattern that reminds me of the Burial/Four Tet collaborations, it is a very trendy, 2011y song. The understated steel drums and set it apart. While it is comfortingly familiar, I can’t think of anything else that sounds exactly like it. Fans of Mount Kimbie and Sepalcure absolutely need to get on this.

I played the song Insider this week; it’s tougher than I’d come to expect from him, and it’s a good indicator of the energy of his live show. Galapagoose was one of the minds behind the software that Daedelus produces and performs with, and that goes some way to explaining the similar kind of soundspace that you get here. It’s a hip hop club banger that wears a cardigan and drinks it’s tea with honey. And it’s a free EP. You can’t say no. Download it here - http://galapagoose.bandcamp.com/album/parquet-ep-3 and then watch this.

Saint Surly and his bro Monster Monster put out an album last year called Out Of The Woodwork, which was one of the most exciting Aussie albums I’ve heard in a while. This isn’t from that album, but a new joint (woodwork joke) that Saint Surly put together and slung over. It sounds like there’s a really cool treated harpsichord sample in there. It reminds me of those rickety old sunburned houses you find in Australian desert towns, with peeling paint, sunrooms and rocking chairs. It’s very friendly stuff.

This tune reminds me of those glory days. Don’t get me wrong, it’s got some punch, like chillout was allowed to. I mean, you found this stuff in the Dance section of your local Sanity. Queensland producer TrakShot is making some warm friendly sounds from dance-y synths, classic breakbeats and tidy vocal samples. I could imagine listening to this on some high-school summer road trip. Maybe there’ll be girls. Maybe not. I don’t know.
I’ve been playing some other TrakShot tunes on the radio show. Check his soundcloud out - his sound is diverse and there are a lot of freebies up there.
