Wherever you are in the world: good morning, good afternoon, good evening, good night. It is time for your 5 a day.

One day, the UK government said, "You should eat 5 portions of fruit or veg[etables] per day." Turns out you should probably eat more than that. But we think it's pretty catchy, so we've hijacked it. Here we'll list FIVE pieces of music per DAY that we think you should check out. As the Italians say, we'll be catching two pigeons with one bean (prendere due piccioni con una fava): we help spread the word about MORE artists, plus we're giving YOU more music to listen to. It's all a joy for us, really!

Russ Liquid makes some nice electronic noises: fluid, wonky, perc-sprinkled. MEDASIN provides some seriously intense, wonderfully rich synth. MISOGI's side project APE gives us a touch of melancholy with a glittering soul flip. Then there's a mix of summertime guitars and frustrated beats from instupendo. To finish things off it's a BAEWAVE collaboration extravaganza: swell. X KALKO X Jåmvvis X ▻ Alejandro X Vega X Kind X olli. = 5 minutes of electronic whimsy and gloopy beats.


It is morning. You are doing morning things: making a cup of tea, buttering some freshly popped-up toast, flicking through various social media accounts on your phone. You look out the window. It's a grey day. Would it be worse if you had to go to work today?


Still, whatever. It's a grey day. Doesn't mean you can't go outside. So you go outside, but you're instantly beset with visions of idealism and sunnier, more exotic places. The wind blows rubbish around. Old people creep along the streets. Mothers and babies looking stressed. Hmm.


You pop into your local shop. It's bright in here, maybe you'll feel better. No. They have an awfully depressing radio station playing, all the oldies, and being in a shop also reminds you of all the money you don't have. You flick through a gaming magazine: "These things used to be more fun," you think. Exit.


You wander around in two minds about how your life is going. "I could just keep on walking," you think. You're in a no-man's-land of your area, where a long, faceless road joins your neighbourhood with another.


You began heading back because it started raining. Getting home, you shut the door to your apartment and look around the small main room. You check your various social media accounts, order a pizza, roll a joint, and open Ableton. Maybe you can follow your musicmaking internet friends into another world, far away from reality.
