Knower - 'Overtime' Live Band Sesh

Posted on January 30, 2018 by Anna Burke | 0 Comments

When you accidentally stumble across something that quite literally makes your chin hit the floor... That's what happened to me when I watched this genius piece of production for the first time.  The combination of insanely good live music mixed with a quirky low-fi  video. To say these guys are talented is an understatement. Watch > Listen > Enjoy.

Linkoban - "Oh Oh"

Posted on November 14, 2017 by Anna Burke | 0 Comments

That moment when you catch your head uncontrollably nodding along to a dance track you've never heard before. That happened to me last week at the 2017 Stylist Live event at Olympia whilst watching the fashion show.  Thank goodness Shazam exists for precisely those moments.  Quickly pulling my phone out to record a snippet of the song, Shazam kindly informed me it was "Oh Oh" by Linkoban.  I quickly sent it round to my friends feeling smug that Id discovered the latest 'banger' dance track to be released...little did I realise it was old news and had actually been released in 2013. Having delved a little deeper, I discovered that the story of Linkoban is a tragic one. A Danish-Chinese, Vietnamese female rapper and an incredible talent, Linkoban was diagnosed with Cancer in 2014 and died a year and a half later in 2016. Here we pay tribute to her amazing talent with this absolutely stomping dance track (that I still can't stop moving to!) Be warned, the video is somewhat 'edgy'...

Pharrell vs Calvin Harris vs Katy Perry - 'Feels"

Posted on September 27, 2017 by Anna Burke | 0 Comments

It's not often that Im keen to promote current commercial tracks, however when Pharrell's involved it's a different story.  I've found myself mindlessly nodding along to this track when it's been on the radio in the background of late, but it was only this week that I got round to watching the video. This is pop music at it's very best and with a delightful neon tropical music video to match you cannot go wrong.  I just love everything about this and decided to share on my music blog to prove Im just as happy to promote current pop music as the classic tunes, as long as it's this good!

Check out my latest mix that I made for a house party I recently played at. It's pretty bouncy dance vibes, as the name suggests! Hope you guys enjoy :-)

Stevie Wonder vs. Soul Train!

Posted on July 05, 2017 by Anna Burke | 0 Comments

Soul Train has to be one of the coolest TV shows to have ever been made. I can quite easily while away hours watching the incredible archive footage on You Tube. There is quite literally nothing better.  The funkiest 70's outfits you'll ever see,  sick dances moves and some of the best funk and soul music ever made, all wrapped up into one epic TV show.  Here is a little taste of when Stevie Wonder made an appearance on the show.  But stay tuned for more Soul Train related posts as I'm absolutely going to have to share one of their classic dancing train videos in the near future...

RIP David Bowie - A True Legend

Posted on January 12, 2016 by Anna Burke | 0 Comments

David Bowie - a legend in its truest form.  A man who was always a presence within my lifetime. Someone I revered and adored, from countless hours listening to his mind blowing music. 'Labyrinth' was a firm favourite movie of mine as a child growing up. And lets not forget his more recent hilarious cameo appearance in Ricky Gervais' 'Extras'.  The world truly lost its 'Starman' yesterday. RIP

Summer's In The Air - Smiling Faces

Posted on April 20, 2015 by Anna Burke | 0 Comments

I love this time of year... the evenings get longer and the trees start sprouting blossom, you can smell the onset of Summer in the air. Every now and again you come across a track that encapsulates this feeling perfectly.  I happened upon this track 'Smiling Faces' by Undisputed Truth just this week. This is the Future Shock Main Ingredient Mix and it makes me dream of long lazy summer days by the sea.  Not long now people....
