Mild Minds MOOD Mild Minds is the Grammy nominated brainchild of Benjamin David. He first started creating music at 13 in his home of Australia, and has since found himself as the creative force behind several successful artist projects. Now, with Mild Minds, David has been able to find solace in returning to his dance music roots, creating a project without pressure and expectation. Along with the first single ‘Movements’, which sees his soothing vocals floating across the tracks danceable synths and smooth percussion, Benjamin is set to release his much anticipated full length LP in 2020 via Foreign Family Collective / Counter Records. Mild Minds makes a worthy return to Counter Records, delivering a sun-kissed, piano-led club groove featuring the soulful voice of Boats. ‘Walls’ is a deep, spacious house groove defined by shuffling shakers and mellow kick drums, forming a perfect base for the emotive, ascending harmonies provided from the piano. Delicate synth arps chime in and help to form a blissful backdrop for Boats to bring his incredible vocals to. Counter Records LP Pre-Order

Doctor Fluorescent Doctor Fluorescent Born out of the minds of Californian musicians Scott Gilmore and Eddie Ruscha (who records as Secret Circuit and E Ruscha V), Doctor Fluorescent is a mad scientist who creates cinematic music, using old synthesizers, vocoders and drum machines. His godfathers Scott & Eddie describe this album as being akin to "a private pressing of an electronic voyage album, discovered in a stack of records next to Supersempft, Roger Powell and Wally Badarou." At once experimental and poppy, the album will provide a lovely, dreamy listening experience. Crammed Discs LP Pre-Order
Tycho Simulcast Rapidly following on from their excellent Grammy Award-nominated 2019 record Weather, Tycho are back with a new instrumental re-imagined version of Weather titled Simulcast. 'Simulcast' features highly anticipated, bespoke instrumental reworkings of 'Weather' album tracks, previously vocal-led by singer-songwriter Saint Sinner. Tycho have taken the essence of the originals and recorded new, alternative versions of those recordings, creating new material from those much loved tracks. This is an unmissable release for any Tycho fan. Speaking about the new record, Scott Hansen of Tycho said "A Simulcast is the transmission of a program across different mediums and in different languages. With these two albums I wanted to present the same ideas in two languages, one more literal and the other more open to interpretation. Simulcast expands on the concepts laid out in Weather but shifts into the abstract with instrumental soundscapes in place of lyrics, opening up a visual space and translating the message into a new language.” Pop Music / Ninja Tune CD | LP Pre-Order
