No you don’t have to drink coffee but if you need to get your perk up and groove on, might I point you to the Romina Jones Coffee And Jazz playlist. It might slide in on the skim of a drum stick or arrive on a jingle of a high hat but this is caffeinated groove with just the right amount of sugar and spice. You are going to have a hard time keeping those feet on the floor, so this playlist might be best for denizens of standing desks or open spaces where you can easily slide off the stool and move your feet.

A follow-up to his The Intergalactic Slapstick full-length, the Steel Trap EP has Liquid Stranger (aka Martin Stääf) putting the emphasis back on to the dub in dub-step.
It really is in the balance between the two where Liquid Stranger excels. Steel Trap EP, featuring two remixes and three new tracks, cleanly blends plenty of old school effects and samples with all the heavy-weight woofer dub-step can offer. The bass-centric clarity and originality of his mixes are what’s earning Liquid Stranger the Mad Professor comparisons, and likewise through all the low frequency force, found in serious amplitude in “Aftershock,” Steel Trap’s reggae roots are what remain front and centre – the mainstay in fact of “Deep Down Below” and “Rough Road.” The EP wraps up with an ethno-ambient number “Sincerely Yours,” which while gorgeous downtempo comes out of nowhere and succeeds in mostly reminding us this is an Interchill release.
