Joker - Here Come the Lights feat. Silas of Turboweekend

Whenver I hear a tune from Joker, I can tell that's produced by him. He has a signature sound, which for some artists can be a negative, but I'm for it with Joker. Always eager to hear some great sawtooth synths that Joker produces.

This is the 2nd single taken from Joker's forthcoming debut album 'The Vision'.

If you haven't already, I suggest you look up the title track from the album featuring the excellent vocals of Jessie Ware. It's been on heavy rotation on every system that I have since it's release.

iO. - You/Me

This is my jam.

Spacey, drifting off into a zone music.

The production on this is great, from listening to this I get shades of Calvin Harris, Jamie xx and Drake all rolled into one song. Love the final 30 odd seconds of the track, with all elements of the track coming together.

See iO's soundcloud for more excellent pieces of produced music. You won't be disappointed.

Ifan Dafydd - No Good / Miranda

Ifan Dafydd - No Good

Ifan Dafydd - Miranda

This track 'No Good' by Ifan Dafydd is just great.

Loved it from the first time that I heard it. The whole vibe of the track, the fantastic sample of Ms Winehouse and all the interesting little sounds, glitches and jitters resonate well with me.

I've seen lots of rumours floating about to the idenity of Ifan Dafydd, with some suggesting that it is in fact an alias for James Blake. Not exactly sure what to make of this or whether if I believe such rumours, but does it really matter when the music is this good.

With plays getting generated from Giles Peterson, Sinden, features on XLR8R and Jamie xx naming him in his list of top 10 producers, expect a lot me hype to come.

This is exciting music.

Delilah - Go

This is served up as Delilah's first solo effort, which is being released by Atlantic records. Been steadily replaying this one all week and you can't get away from the flipping of a dance classic.

Her voice is quite magnificent in my opinion. It's very distinctive and this is a excellent vocal performance on a down tempo minimal production.

I'm going to be looking out for more from her.

You may remember Delilah from Chase and Status' last release 'Time', which the video is below...
