We caught up with Catching Flies ahead of his slot at Eastern Electrics festival this August. Getting the low down on what he listens to at home, as well as some of his favourite tracks to play out.
Letherette - Eye to Eye
A tune off one of Letherette’s early EPs on Ho Tep (Alex Nut’s label). Love Letherette’s sample chops.
Robert Glasper - Always Shine (ft. Lupe Fiasco & Bilal)
Big fan of Robert Glasper and Bilal so the two together was a perfect match for me.
Contact Play - Fumes
Wicked little instrumental!
Actress - Our
Good for grey days. Check out the rest of Actress’ album - highly recommended!
Grant Green - Maybe Tomorrow
Listen to a lot of jazz so was hard to pick a single tune. But at the moment it’s this one. Been sampled quite a lot - recently on Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Sing About Me, I’m Dying’ which was one of my favourites off that LP.
On the Road...
Drum Talk - Time
Drum Talk is relatively new on the scene but excited for his forthcoming stuff. Been playing this out a lot recently.
Dauwd - Lydia
Have been into Dauwd’s stuff for ages. Love the way he keeps melody on the dancefloor. Beautiful tune.
Caribou - Can’t Do Without You
An obvious choice but had to include it. One of my favourite tunes of this year so far. Always gets people going.
Moderat - Bad Kingdom (Dj Koze Remix)
Love the original but Dj Koze takes it to another level here.
Fort Romeau - I Need You
Nice dusty house. Very into Fort Romeau’s output.
