Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
What I Love - Punctual
UK Producer/DJ duo Punctual's most recent single is a song that needs to be getting more attention, especially as we are getting into the heart of summer; I would have been so disappointed if I had come across "What I Love" after summertime, because it is a near-perfect summer jam.
Check the song out below:
The first thing that strikes me from "What I Love" is the fact that I almost immediately get vibes of The Avalanches; Punctual have completely nailed that sort of funky, electro-dance combination here, with a bit more of a trend toward the electro. That means "What I Love" is a song that you are not only going to get stuck in your head forever, but it is impossible not to move to.
First time I heard "What I Love" I was running on caffeine (and little sleep) having just finished doing about 3 hours of editing sound, and about a minute in *I* was even dancing (feeling like you would imagine), by myself, at my workspot.
Honestly, I really can't wait to see what Punctual does next, as I hope that we get more artists wading into a funkier side of dance/electro, and they have shown in "What I Love" that they can absolutely nail it.
Oh, and yeah, if I do end up getting enough folks asking me nicely in the comments, or on Twitter, and I do put a DSD Summer List up, this will definitely feature.
Here's the June 2017 DSD Playlist! We're only missing one track this month (as is tradition)! This months list was actually one of the harder ones for me to put together into something that feels (at least sort of) cohesive...I'm not sure why, but I am happy with the way it turned out in the end!
I've also heard you, and here it is: theguysfrom playlists are now available on Spotify! You can find us by looking for theguysfrom on Spotify, click on this link for the June '17 Spotify List...I will also embed the last months' playlist on every Friday DSD.
Come on back tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
