B-and-Bee Festival Sleeping Experience
When going to non-urban music festivals, accommodation options can be limited, often revolving around a camping option, a ‘glamping’ option, and nothing in between. Recently four companies in Belgium, Compaan, Labeur vow, One Small Step, and Achilles Design, joined forces to create the B-and-Bee, a stackable honeycomb structure that aims give festival lovers all around the world affordable sleeping quarters that give comfort whilst looking look great.
Each B-and-Bee honeycomb ‘cell’ has luggage storage, a locker, a light, and a power supply, and the cozy king size bed (yes we did indeed say bed) can also be easily transformed into a comfortable lounge seat. The B-and-Bee was trialled at different festivals this year and the feedback from festival organisers has been extremely positive.
With B-and-Bee honeycombs being quick and easy to set up, we can see these being picked up by more and more festivals in the future as a way to enhance the festival experience for those who want something a bit more comfortable than a tent in a field. If only they could add a shower to each cell. We can only dream.

Xeno and Oaklander | Sheen
Brooklyn Duo Xeno and Oaklander are a minimal electronics girl/boy duo from Brooklyn, NY. This summer, Xeno and Oaklander bring their minimal electronic sounds to Ghostly International with new album Par Avion, their first for the label.
The album’s title is a reference to postcards — it translates as “by plane”, and was used to mark airmail sent from exotic places. The songs are postcards of love for a cold age — shimmering moments from the present, romantic messages from the past, and love mementos for the future. Together, they make up an album of contrasts — the songs move from upbeat to downbeat, slow to fast, light to dark.
Our favourite track from the album called Sheen is exemplary of singer Liz Wendelbo whispery vocals, something that we can’t get enough of. Get the album directly from Ghostly International.

JBAG - Through Blue (radio edit)
Just in time for summer comes JBAG’s new single ‘Through Blue’ featuring the singer of Polish electronic band Kamp! Following in the footsteps of last year’s mighty ‘Mogadisco’, ‘Through Blue’ unfolds another sad yet happy melody albeit locked into a slick, pulsing groove. Topped by the boyish vocals of Tomek Szpaderski – he who with his two Kamp! accomplices is soon putting Poland on the map with inspired indie-dance – ‘Through Blue’ takes a meaningful turn bringing extra depth to an already endearing, emotive backing track led by nostalgic steel drums and pianos.
As well as the JBAG’s vocal mix, the 4 track EP includes reworks from Holmes Price (UK) who’s taken the piano-house route, Jesse Lamar & Jay Oliver (Finland) who’ve opted for big room drama and Venice Beach (France) who’ve favored a dreamier angle. The 16th release on Continental records, JBAG’s own imprint, adds yet another nuance to the label’s palette of dj-friendly underground pop music.

BEAMS | Feeling That The Feeling’s Right on CSCN
BEAMS is more than a rather nice department store in Tokyo. It also happens to be the name of the electronic project of 21-year old multi-instrumentalist and producer Zack Kantor from New York City. He produces dancey, futuristic electro pop and his single for CSCN Feeling That The Feeling’s Right fuses lo-fi pop with crisp, dark dance melodies to create a contemporary collage of sounds. We can’t wait to hear more!

Foreign Boy | Dance Like A Light
We’re getting excited about ‘Dance Like A Light,’ a high energy italo X nudisco track taken from the debut Foreign Boy release on Nude Disco Records. The track is filled with mesmerising vocoders, an octave bassline and frantic mono synth riffs, all the essential ingredients required to propel one into a state of non-stop dancing.
In addition to the original track, The ‘Dance Like A Light EP’ contains a brilliant remix by Boysinadisco. Check out the original track above and if you like it, why not get your own copy for guaranteed bliss.

Magic Eye | Babylon (James Booth Silk Remix)
Magic Eye recently came out with their excellent hazy guitar release Babylon on Not Not Fun Records and when James Booth (100% Silk) decided to do a remix of their title track we knew that we had to take a listen. Booth gives the song a rather nice beat treatment which makes one want to dance deep in to the night and early morning hours. Listen to it for yourself above.

Box of Wolves | The Drift Hour No. 36
A nice weekend mix from the brilliant Box of Wolves.
01. Bipolar Sunshine / Deckhairs On The Moon (Eli & Fur Remix)
02. Cyclist & Miako Watson / Sunshine
03. Falcon Punch & Roller Radio / And You
04. Soft Touch / Real Love (AIMES Remix)
05. MermaidS / MersteriouS
06. Pomo / Start Again (feat. Andrea Cormier)
07. Woman’s Hour / Conversations (Fort Romeau Remix)
08. Benoit & Sergio / Your Darkness
09. Duke Dumont / Won’t Look Back (Radio Edit)
10. LEMONADE / Stepping
11. Beni / Protect (feat. Anthony & Cleopatra)
12. Golf Clap / Future (Bit Funk Remix)
Box of Wolves is a hybrid 90′s Summer Nostalgia/Chill-/Synthwave music project nursed by Gabriel Akinrinmade out of the whims of his sundry synth modulator experiments. Highly reminiscent of the sounds of Teen Daze, Com Truise, and Washed Out, Box of Wolves, even to bottom-tier music aficionado, runs like a non-obnoxious transcendental LSD alt-party set list.
It’s equal parts chill, equal parts solid, thanks in part to basic but grippingly steady beats. Gems from the ‘Illusions’ LP include “The Wake Up”, the crash of industrial waves spliced through rousing syncopated delay. “Glitter Vision”, the aural transcription of the perpetual glint in your eyes, complete with sensory warping evinced by the fading in, fading out, and “To Want You”, a composite of slippery smooth “Fuck, You, You, Yous”.

Free DL from UK Bass Newcomer Danglo on Kitsuné
Danglo is a South East London fast rising talent whose profile has built up over the last twelve months in the exploding UK bass scene remixing the likes of Maribou State and Say Lou Lou, picking up good club and radio support from Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss, Capital Xtra and XFM along the way.
For his first release on Kitsuné , the young producer is making a splash with an EP containing three uplifting original tracks: “Spotlight” showcases the bouncy 90s garage-influence of the producers’ sound, whilst “Drifter” (featuring Estonian songstress Liisi Koikson) delivers hypnotic bass and shows a darker and deeper side. Finally, “Forget You” offers summer vibes with pounding drums and an infectious steel drum hook which you can check out above.
Danglo will be playing several Kitsuné Club Nights this summer, but in the meantime listen to the Spotlight EP minimix! Stay tuned for more info.

Chica Paula’s Veranitotranquilo Mix
Rather enjoying this mix from Paula Schopf (aka Chica Paula) from Berlin. Reminds us of listening to Oceanclub Radio in Berlin from yesteryear.
Just some background information about Paula:
“It goes without saying then that Paula was trained in as good a context as there could be for any technophile: 90s Berlin. She learnt her trade as a DJ playing at locations like Ostgut-Panoramabar (now Berghain), WMF and the aforementioned Tresor. These days, the list has also come to include Watergate, Weekend, Maria and Club der Visionaere.
As well as frequent gigs in Berlin, she has played sets far and wide from Detroit to Moscow to Buenos Aires, and of course extensively throughout Europe at places such as Rote Sonne (Munich), Culture Box (Copenhagen), Zukunft (Zürich) and Le Triptyque (Paris) to name but a few. On top of all these clubs, she has played at a wide range of international festivals such as Benicassim, MUTEK, Popkomm, Love Parade and Detroit’s DEMF to name but a few.
Despite all this notable success on the Berlin and international scene, Chica Paula remains true to her roots and still enjoys playing parties with the Chilean crew when the opportunity arises – for example, with the Ruta5 organization of which she is a founding member.”

Frog Storage Unit by Nicolas Abdelkader
What’s green, has four legs and has something cool about it? Frogs do of course but so does the Frog storage unit produced by the brilliant French furniture designer Nicolas Abdelkader aka NAB. The Frog stands on four pointy legs which support several large storage areas that seemingly look like a pair of eyes and a large mouth. When filled with items such as electronic equipment, books, cds and other household ephemera, the Frog acts as a simple yet modern frame to showcase your personal possessions.
