mix by martyn

Martyn has become one of my favourites. I've written about him before. I love his album Great Lengths.

Listen to this mix by him, it's pretty good and fun. He also responded to my tweet which I thought was hilarious.

matthew herbert

Fahad is annoyed I haven't done in a real post in a while. Before I used to bug him now he's bugging me.

So going back to the vault again. I discovered Matthew Herbert through listening to Gilles Peterson Worldwide back in college, which is how I also discovered Ame. I definitely need to go back to listening to online radio and playlists again at some point soon; it's a great way to discover music.

A lot of the music I like is genre-less - you can't fit it into one category. Though I definitely post up a lot of house and dubstep, I also put up stuff that isn't easily defined and that's probably my favourite kind of music. Matthew Herbert falls into that category. I really don't know how to describe his sound. But check it out, what do you think?

Here are my favourite songs of his:

This is "Moving Like A Train" from his 2006 album Scale. This is also one of my fave music videos, its extremely creative.

Here's "Movers and Shakers" from the same album:

You can check out more of Herbert's music and all sorts of stuff on his site.
