Trackstar the DJ with Killer Mike & Big Boi - "Shoes For Running Tour Mixtape"

Now that all the ice is off the sidewalks here in Winterpeg, the opportunity to do some running without cleats and with minimal chance of slipping, put this mixtape from the Shoes For Running Tour on and get the motivation you need from Killer Mike and Big Boi.

Alice Russell - "Hard & Strong (Typesun remix)"

My long-standing position that Alice Russell has one of the most phenomenal voices in music right now is reinforced by this Typesun remix that strips away all ornamentation and leaves us with a beat and Russell's perfect vocal.

Dutch Uncles - "Bellio"

Dutch Uncles definitely beats a dutch oven. Which is not to say this track is crap. Far from it.

Austra - "Home"

Oh yeah. Mark your calendar with a big circle around June 18th when the sophomore Austra record Olympia drops on Paper Bag in Canada and Domino in the States.

Medline - "People Make The World Go Round"

I'm not exactly a scientist, but I think gravity or the sun have something to do with the world going 'round. That said, I've always loved this Roy Ayers track and the Medline cover is no exception.

The Gene Dudley Group - "The Fawcett Negotiation"

Like the Daptone horns? The Menahan Street Band? Then you'll dig the shit out of this. Not sure what the Fawcett Negotiation was but I'm sure they got it settled if they played this single.

Bonobo - "First Fires (ft. Grey Reverend)"

One of my favourite cuts of last week (closed the show out with it), from the forthcoming Bonobo full-length just got posted on Bonobo's soundcloud. Peep this and cop The North Border.

Kisses - "Air Conditioning"

Considering Winterpeg is still under a blanket of snow (seriously WTF), I have no need for air conditioning right now. But like the a/c in July, I've been running this track all day.

Akron/Family - "Way Up"

Like the entire world, I'm not the biggest Monday guy, especially when we're in the midst of a snowstorm. But when the new Akron/Family arrived in the mail this morning, I knew this week was off to an alright start.

Alice Russell - "Heartbreaker (Falty DL remix)"

Not so much a Heartbreaker as a bass-quaker once Falty DL is done reconstructing Alice Russell's first single from the forthcoming album To Dust.

Lapalux - "Moveoutofmyway (ft. ShadowBox)"

This is blissful. Production takes me back to King Britt's Scuba project (a highly underrated record) with its watery beat.

Computer Jay - "Hardships (ft. Orfeo)"

The only hardship is the title. It's easy as hell to get lost in this song and this video. Orfeo's vocals have got me scouring the web for more collaborations and solo-work.

Mount Kimbie - "Blood and Form"

This synth and kick drum beat just kind of trudges on and on, but it's insistent and it gets under your skin.
