The Birthday Letters

The Birthday Letters is the brainchild of Brighton-based singer/musician Joseph Hughes. His latest Ep was recorded and produced in his bedroom at night, after he got of work. If you want something bad enough, you make time for it and this guy is driven!

Hints of Spiritualized and New Order.

Very chill and fun.

dodie - Sick of Losing Soulmates

Daniel W J Mackenzie



I'm a huge fan of movie soundtracks and sonic soundscapes. I have a stable of artists or composers I go to when I'm in that kind of mood.

Daniel W J Mackenzie Is one of those musicians. He can make me feel something so intense and visceral with just a simple piano or muted drone.

Listen for yourself.







Breathtaking.

Time to focus on another awesome label.

This time it's Eskimo Recordings out of Belgium.
