Mylo – Zenophile

(click song title above to listen)

This week’s Top Tune comes via Isle of Skye, Scotland bred DJ/record producer Mylo (Myles MacInnes) from his debut 2004 album Destroy Rock & Roll. A mix of twisted house, electroclash and chilled vibes, the album reached #26 on the UK album chart and netted Mylo four Top 20 UK Club tracks and a top 10 U.S. Dance chart hit. The set has drawn comparisons to the work of Daft Punk, Groove Armada and Royksopp.

Growing up on Skye, one of the furthest flung corners of Europe, MacInnes couldn’t be too choosy about his sources of music. “Basically we had Atlantic 252,” he explains. “It was this kind-of soft rock station on long-wave. We all believed it to be transmitted from a boat floating out in the mid-Atlantic.” Continually on tour from club gigs to stints at Coachella and the Isle of Wedge festivals, Mylo is also in demand as a remixer, contributing remixes for artists that include Scissor Sisters, Amy Winehouse, The Killers & Kylie Minogue.

Joe Stilgoe – The Rhythm of Life

(click song title above to listen)

The Rhythm Of Life is a powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet

One of our favorite tunes around the Notable offices, “The Rhythm of Life,” is classic Cy Coleman Broadway. An undeniably happy beat drives this tune that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Written by Coleman and Dorothy Fields for the 1966 hit Broadway musical Sweet Charity, a show that reinvented Broadway, remains one of musical theatre’s most revered classics.

The tune’s iconic 1969 performance was by none other than Sammy Davis Jr. for Charity’s film adaptation. A couple of years later soulful versions by the likes of Motown royalty Diana Ross & the Supremes and The Temptations would hit the airwaves, exposing this classic to a whole new audience.

This week we give you Joe Stilgoe‘s stellar performance from his new album Songs on Film: The Sequel. Flip your wings and fly to Daddy!
