Geiom – No More Tears

Dubsteppy garage here from Nottingham’s Geiom. I don’t really know much about him so won’t bother waffling away but I love the vibe of this. Love the vocals…

Super Cat – Dem No Worry We

Big tings from Super Cat one of a few Jamaican artists who had crossover hits in the 90s. For those who don’t know him from his reggae tunes his biggest US hit was probably Dolly My Baby featuring a famous verse from the one and only Notorious BIG (“I love it when you call me Big Poppa…”) as well as some piss poor rapping from Puff Daddy.

Sadly I can’t embed this one here but check the original video on YouTube for some serious 1992 style & fashion:-

Super Cat – Dem No Worry We

Sugababes – Overload

Right, before we get started I would like to point out that I don’t like Sugababes. I’ll freely admit that some pop acts (Girls Aloud) are great but they are few and far between and even the decent ones have albums full of stinkers alongside some perfectly crafted pop singles. Anyway, before they descended into bland cookie cutter crap Sugababes did have a pretty top debut single. You might not agree (and I probably wouldn’t blame you) but I really like it!

The Cure – Let’s Go To Bed

The Cure, a band who I’m sure will pop up here again at some point, released tonnes of classics. Most people know all the big tunes: Close To Me, Lovecats, Boys Don’t Cry etc. but this is one that might have escaped several of you. Released as a single all the way back in 1982 this is a lovely slice of 80s electronic pop music…

The Knife – Like A Pen

You’ll probably know Heartbeats by these guys which was pretty huge when José González covered it and it became the theme tune for a bunch of bouncing balls.

This is off the Swedish duo’s third album, Silent Shout, and is more of the same quirky electro stuff. The vocalist, Karin, recently released a solo album as Fever Ray. Wicked stuff
