Phil France — The Swimmer LP [Twentysix-Two Recordings]
The Swimmer LP for me is an album-inspiration. It is ideal for creation. Impressions from it are so amazing, it’s like you come into the clear sea and feel the essence of the universe. When I got tired of all music, I turn France‘ LP on and get on the heavenly Olympus, where all is quiet, peaceful, harmonious and feel the spirit of freedom.

Tambien — Drogato 12″ [ESP Institute]
This record from Munich’s trio Tambien and upcoming release from 30 10 3402 seem like an injection of healthy, stronger sound into ESP Institute label. I adore the B-side of Drogato: it’s more than 12 minute long epic breakbeat number with 90s-like dramatic piano line.

Merge — Distant Land LP [Growing Bin]
It’s like a warm ultraviolet evening after the whole day spent on the sea. You are full, calm and light. Long Distance needs very close listening. It’s a brilliant album.

COS/MES — Sadistic EP #3 12″ [Funiki]
One of my favorite Japanese projects COS/MES pleased us with their third Sadistic EP. Charming artwork and remixes from Discodromo and Soft Rocks did their job — the same record is perfect for a prime-time and for an afterparty in the morning. Top recommends!
