Haven’t got much to say about this playlist. I just knocked it up as I fancied listening to a few tracks. Kicking off is The Twelves Remix of “Comme ci comme ca”, which in typical Twelves style brings the disco. If you’ve never heard these Brazillian love bastards at work, this is a fantastic place to start. I slipped Goldheart Assembly’s “King Of Rome” in next because it just feels good, you know? Let’s keep things happy for now, eh?
Tubelord were at 2000trees, unfortunately I missed them. To make up for it, I’ll just leave “Night Of Pencils” here. I also missed Sky Larkin at the recent Broken Social Scene gig, which is a shame as they are fantastic – “Octopus ‘08” highlights this, then underlines it. Then draws a lightening bolt behind it. Kickin’ rad aces.

And So I Watched You From Afar were one of my favourite acts I did see at 2000trees. They were tight, they were vibrant and “Set Guitars To Kill” really sets the scene for the second half of the playlist.

Gonzales has a knack for picking fantastic tracks to re-imagining, and I’m sure you’ll remember the reworking of “Too Long” from Daft Punk’s catalogue.

Closing this playlist is Air’s sublime “So Light Is Her Footfall” and Metronomy’s “Love Song For A Dog”, which to be fair feels a little out of place, but I just wanted to end with it. They were fantastic at 2000trees and I know for a fact made a few converts to their cause with their sublime set.

For now, for then, au revoir.
