Playlist / Lonestar Productions / September 2016

Lonestar`s back at Bonobo this Saturday. If you fancy braving the typhoons and making a long weekend of it, you can also share a hair-of-the-dog with us at the World Famous launch party, featuring live sets from Bing Ji Ling and Tokyo Black Star, at Wall & Wall on Sunday.


Vitruvians / Spaghetti Saloon / Leng Records

It’s great to finally hear the fruits of labor from my aniki from Victoria & beyond, Senor Valentine nailing it once again! Equally wicked to have it released from Leng Records as well!

Lauer / Tearsh / Live At Robert Johnson

Always smashing it with sublime tracks, Lauer!

Toby Tobias / A Room For Babette (Ptaki Remix) / Cosmic Pint Glass

Mr. Tobias on great balearic form with equally dope Ptaki remix! It’s double trouble!

Tempelhof & Gigi Masin / Blue 13 / Hell Yeah!

Had to put this tranquil masterpiece in this list of my recent favs! Is Jiji Machine(as they call him here) finally coming to Japan? I hope so. With so much of his past works being reissued in Japan of late including “Wind”!


Georgie Fame / Samba (Remix)

 Cair0 / Smokin` / City Beat

Black Spuma / Metallo Nero / International Feel


Lauer / Tearsh / Live At Robert Johnson

I know Ken picked this too, but I love it too much for it not to be in my top 3. Ken’s got four anyway.

Beardyman - Mountainside (Cosmodelica remix) / Tummy Touch

Sonic Friends of the Galaxy / Adamo & Eva (Leo Mas & Fabrice On Air Mix) / Music for Dreams

Sounded beautiful on the Bonobo system last month.


Three for upstairs

Ras Michael & The Sons & Daughters Of Negus / Promised Land Sounds / Dug Out

Odion Iruoje / Down To Earth / Soundway

Wal Sant`ana / Que Vida E Essa / Mr Bongo
