dewa The world is beautiful, time will continue to pass no matter what I do, and something is innately wrong in this creation... every song gives me this combination of feelings. Unease mixed with delight.
Favorite track: Foreign Fruit.

Yambone This album has snuck into my favorites list of late. I found it completely at random, and now I can't stop listening to it. It's surprisingly melancholy at points - great for listening to on a lonely evening. Favorite track: Foreign Fruit.

Pete Leonard This guy just gets better and better. I've told him before I think he's the best producer in trip hop and breakbeat in the U.K. right now. The cinematic and moody nature of his music is very mature given he's only been at this for several years or so, and with tracks like hikikomori........he MIGHT become the next Boards of Canada.
Truly, truly creative, inspiring and imaginative stuff.

Honey Trap flits between trip hop, breakbeat and post-dubstep, with colourful plunderphonics and an undercurrent of uneasy nostalgia. The album's eclectic sample palette draws from international cinema, video games, vintage records and diegetic noise, creating a blend unlike any other.

I hope you find the sticky melodies, bittersweet flavours and runny beats within Honey Trap a tempting treat.

Track Name: Les Apaches
Louise: Y'a des gosses - des millions d'gosses qu'ont connu la misère, comme toi. Comment s'fait-il, quelle différence y'a-t-il entre eux et toi pour que tu sois devenu un truand, un dur, et pas les autres ?

Ghost In The Shell excerpt
[Translation: "I feel fear, anxiety, loneliness, darkness - and perhaps even hope, as I float up to the surface I feel like I can become something else"]

Akira excerpt: "Yume wo mita no - machi ga karoi kage ni tsutsumarete, kowarete iku no. Hito ga ippai shinde, machi ga kowarete; anna ni ippai shinu wa..."

I wanna be loved
starting tonight,
Instead of merely holding conversation
hold me tight,

I wanna be kissed
starting tonight,
Instead of merely holding conversation
hold me tight,



Carol: I'm going away for a while
Therese: When - where?
Carol: Wherever my car will take me. West. Soon. And I thought perhaps you'd like to come with me. Would you?
Therese: Yes. Yes I would.
