You'll find a cornucopia of tasty tunes to bounce off your eardrums. I update with new tunes, art and photography every week, depending on what I'm doing and listening to at the time, old and new. I'm based in London UK but I love to travel and discovery new music along the way and share my musical journey on neoloop.

One of the best Late Night Tales compilations for a while, the compilation series that maintains a quality output have chosen the effervescent Friendly Fires, an inspired choice as it turns out. The selection covers many genres as well as uptempo house, obscure indie, disco-funk, art-pop and ambient chill. This tune is a stand-out, fourth track in, anthemic porn-disco Fly Like An Eagle by Dennis Parker. And it's not just the old stuff that makes for an impressive collection, Melody Echo Chamber's Endless Shore is a welcome addition from a great artist. Friendly Fires’ exclusive cover version of the ’78 electronic classic Why Don't You Answer by Eberhard Schoener and Sting sounds like one of their own.
Surprise choice perhaps is Olivia Newton-John's cover of the Elton John classic Love Song from Tumbleweed Connection, an amazing version that I've never heard before. Also includes choice cuts from Cocteau Twins, SBTRKT, Iron Galaxy, Bibio, Stereolab, Slowdive, Joe Simon and Sonna.
Definitely one of the best comps of the year and certainly one of the best Late Night Tales comps ever, no mean feat considering it's on it's thirtieth edition. Highly Recommend.
French electro-popper Monsieur Lobster's Simon & Garfunkel cover, broadcasted in french TV show Paris dernière and released on Beatrice Ardisson compilation La musique de Paris Dernière (2009).
Wrong, but strangely charming.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday Love
Chaz Bundick's electro-funk Toro Y Moi project picks a strange choice for a cover tune, Saturday Love was originally recorded by Alexander O'Neal & Cherrelle in 1985.
Following the critically acclaimed Underneath The Pine album from earlier this year he's back again with a new EP titled Freaking Out - due September 13th. Saturday Love is the first track to surface from the new EP, being that I love the original eighties soul classic and know it word for word it's an interesting song to hear remade. Chaz changes it from a duet to a solo performance and adds the unique Toro Y Moi lush synth sound, refreshing it for a new generation. Hear the original below…
