So, Stuart Holden, a twenty something from Essex has just been signed to - arguably - the coolest label in the universe!
Under the guise Lapalux, our Stuart has been releasing his own material since 2008. His self released 'Forest EP' and the the more recent'Many faces out of Focus album' alerted the heads over at the Brainfeeder camp and here he is. Boom!
I confess, i only really picked up his sound after his wicked bootleg of Gwen Stefani's 'Luxurious' from last Summer.
However, after digging a bit further into the sound and mind of Lapalux, it's easy to see why 'Fly Lo' has snapped up this very original and talented young producer.
Killer new upfront action from Bonobo's 'Black sands' remix album. The Steoples, Neon Jung and Alice Russell with Quantic and his Combo Barbaro (already one of the tunes of the year), Georgia Ann Muldrow. Plenty of new releases from the likes of The Internet, Boog brown, Stan Smith, Yellowtail . . . . . . .

End of January and only a couple months until the good weather arrives. Oh yes!
I have to say, i really don't mind Jan at all. Time goes too quickly as it is, the last thing i will ever do is wish time away.
It's made all the easier when you have such killer tunes to get you through the grey days.
January's heat is as follows;
