Jessie Ware + Beards
Jessie Ware's 110% had the same impact on my ear drums that hearing The La's There She Goes for the first time did. A new song that sounded utterly familiar, not as a retroist cave of comfort for the progressively challenged with their "Oh things were better when we all ate Spam and listened to Mod" ways but in that it sounded like an already made classic, to the point it felt utterly strange this song never existed in my ears until that moment.
Beards in Techno are a reliable indicator. So much so that giving a remix to Joe Goddard is like getting a lift home from that friend who you know is probably over the limit but will absolutely, definitely not crash.
