With St Jerome’s Laneway Festival Singapore upon us in this part of the continent again, what better time is there to put out the second part of our Laneway mixtape? Sink deep under the psychedelic sounds of Youth Lagoon, Mount Kimbie, Kurt Vile and more. As opposed to indie pop/rock numbers like in thefirst part of Hiphiker’s guide to the galaxy, this is just nice for a slow-moving day. Also, we may or may not have gone to great measures in ensuring to cram in a few songs by Laneway SG’s local performers such as Gema, Vandetta and The Observatory; some of whom are so up-and-coming that their work hasn’t echoed very far beyond home shores… till now. Hit play and space out.
Space Forklift – Kurt Vile
Life Round Here (Gema Rework) – Gema x James Blake
Come Save Me – Jagwar Ma
‘Maybes’ (James Blake Remix) – Mount Kimbie x James Blake
