3 tracks from the Da Bank show this week

Favourite tracks from Rob Da Bank’s show this week that are worth a mention…

Golden Fable – very excited about. They did 3 tracks live at Maida Vale for Mr Da Bank, Always Golden, Be Alive and The Chill Pt.2. Although I preferred the 2 others more, this is still ace and is their latest single. Hail from North Wales + you can download for free from their website or buy a limited edition copy (only 200 made).

Jonny Kearney & Lucy Farrell — Stand Up Show from their album Kite. Check it out on iTunes.

Hackman – You Deliver out on Ramp Recordings

Crystal Fighters – Champion Sound (Mustang mix)

In two minds which I prefer, this mix or the original version, this is much ‘cooler’ but the other one is so upbeat… anyhow heard this around for a bit, definitely played by Rob Da Bank though – favourite radio dj out there at the moment. Crystal Fighters on iTunes.

Check the original below…video shared from Crystal Fighters

The Dø – Too Insistent

The Dø, heard via Dermot O’Leary’s Radio 2 show on Saturday. This track is absolutely amazing, also has been remixed by the supreme Trentmøller. They play Hoxton Bar and Grill on Nov 23rd. Anyone fancy it?

Mazzy Star – Into Dust

Seen the Gears of War ads on tv, the ad visual (although awesome graphics) are just the run of the mill design solution of showing the in game graphics but the soundtrack to these ads are amazing.
