May is almost out.
Traditionally a hectic time for the release schedule, this year has seen some absolute giants emerge from their slumber, while a host of newcomers have signalled their arrival. It's been - no matter where your standpoint - a fairly dramatic time.
Fenech-Soler craft monthly mixtapes for their site, reflecting what's been getting played on their stereo. Usually a deft mixture of new music and classic cuts, May's instalment is no exception with the four piece stringing together something fairly chilled out.
There's an emphasis on bedroom producers, as the mix opens with Neon Indian and ends with Washed Out. Along the way, you'll find big hitters - step forward Phoenix, nice to see you Andy Cato - while there are also some relatively underground names on show.
