Something for the Weekend

Donegal mix master Colpey Calling selects his new Track of the Week, as well as the Best Track You’ve Never Heard.

Track of the Week

Prequel – “The Test Dream” (2014)

My pick for track of the week comes from Melbourne via Peckham – Bradley Zero’s label Rhythm Section International has unearthed an absolute gem of an artist who has made a big statement with his first release! The whole EP is brilliant – “The record oozes jazz, lush orchestral experiments and downbeat, Detroit flavour house spread across 4 tracks of sun soaked productions.” The last track on the release is my personal favourite. I have pre-ordered my copy – vinyl is going quickly but available here and all good retailers!

Best Track You’ve Never Heard

Sunbelt – “Spin It” (1981)

A fun, uplifting track with beautiful synths! Caribou has been dropping this tune for the last year at festivals and club nights, and each time it brings a smile to my face, the crowd always love it! But i have never known who or what the track was! Caribou put this in his recent essential mix, and finally I have it on 12″ – thank you Dan Snaith!
