Simon Scott - Depart, Repeat 7"
I bought this because: I'm a sucker. No that's not strictly true, but I wasn't bowled over by the music initially and was more sold on the mystery and potential of 6 more hand made 7"s being released over the next few years. With the possibility, in my head anyway, that one of those releases might be a Peter Broderick release. I bought from the label too so that I qualify for some special surprise when the last 7" is released. Sounds intriguing. It cost me £10 for this 7", so it better be bloody worth it!!
Umberto\C V L T S - Split 7"
I bought this because: it's limited to 300 copies (on white vinyl) and I didn't want to um and ahh, then get stiffed buying it from eBay or Discogs after it sold out. Some beautifully dark drones going on. The Umberto album is amazing.

Penelope Joy & Peter Broderick - Apple Bobbing At ___
I bought this because: of the afore mentioned Broderick fixation. There were only 100 made, mine's number 45. I missed out on the Digitalis tape (Ten Duets), and there were 300 of those, so with this capture I feel all warm and (chosen?), nah, special :0) You can stream it here...

Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers 7"
I bought it because: despite the fact that it reminds me of Duffy (!), it is cool, catchy and has a very infectious little Japanese drum hook.
NOMO and Shawn Lee - Upside Down limited 7"
I bought it because: it's another damn fine addition to my 'funky sevens' box. Limited to 500 copies and comes with some cute little jukebox inserts. Shawn Lee got da beats fo' shure.

Tuesday, February 01, 2011
I bought it because: they are original versions of the tracks sampled by Daft Punk for “One More Time” and “Digital Love” and they are damn good.
I bought it because: they’re more original versions of Daft Punk sampled tunes. The basis for “Robot Rock” and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger".
I bought it because: it’s the best track on the, pretty lame, Plastic Beach LP. Has a superb Arabian flavoured orchestral intro. Limited to 1000 for Record Store Day 2010
I bought it because: it was one of the best albums of 2010. Future beats with plenty of melody and funk – recommended if you don’t know it already.
I bought it because: it was supposed to be limited to 200 copies in a hand-stamped cover, from Will Bankhead’s The Trilogy Tapes label. It’s also very good in an original, experimental beats stylee.
I bought it because: Fat City have good form and the hook-ups are sweet. MF Dooooom! Plus it was only £10.99 from Amazon for a double LP with free P+P.
I bought it because: there are some righteous tunes on there, including Hihache and Voodounon. Samples, samples, samples.
I bought it because: Coma Cat is my house tune of 2010 and this 12” only cost me £4.99 from HMV inc P+P.
I bought it because: of a chance hearing. The Living Islands Tropical Doom mix sounds like late 80’s\early 90’s proto-trance (aka 808 State)
I bought it because: it was only £3.99 from Juno.co.uk, it has the original AND 2 Lindstrom mixes. Bonusk!
I bought it because: the Carl Craig mix destroys it! Why is it so expensive though? £8.99? Really?
I bought it because: I’m a Broderick collector (groupie!). Limited to 350 copies and each is unique. Better to grab it now rather than regret it later when it’s sold out everywhere. Except eBay.
I bought it because: of the same reasons above. However, the music of Rauelsson is something I’ve now been turned on to – very good.Trophy Wife – Microlite 7"
I bought it because: they are one of the ‘next big things’ from Oxford. The A and B sides are awesome and will undoubtedly be in my Top 10 tracks of 2011 and we’re only just into February.
How To Dress Well – Love Remains LP
I bought this because: I wanted the original Lefse Records version rather than the Tri-Angle release. It was cheaper ordering from Lefse themselves and they gave me downloads of the album and a compilation of artist tracks from their roster – all excellent.
