To say I stumbled across this track is an understatement. For many Years Radio 1 have been ditching their famous DJ’s in search of something new and fresh. This has resulted in many a great DJ being cast aside; though this was not the case with the late John Peel. I have often said that Rob Da Bank is one of the few great DJs on this stations airwaves. Rob is music through and through from his Sunday Best label, DJing and the various festival events he curates.
Rob is one of them DJs that covers such a wide range of genres, It easier to say he is just a great DJ. It was through Rob that I got my hands on this little number, “Summer Girl” by Family Of The Year. It was featured as a tune of the day on Robs Twitter page, a little bonus for anybody who follows the DJ.
Family of the year are a band that I know nothing about but i will be keeping an eye out for. This track has a distinctive summer feel to it, like the name suggests. It has similarities to that of the great Beach Boys, something that is often over used but certainly worthy in this case. I see nothing wrong with posting this mid November, something to help us think of warmer times.
I literally cannot stop listening to this track and have been forcing people to listen to it. For this reason it seems a good place to kick of my new blog with this post.
Dedicated to the eternal summer girl, Miss Traffic.
