So it’s all about locking into the long groove this week with only 11 tracks making up this show and a fair bit of 4/4 to boot but a lovely slice of nu-soul, courtesy of Kyra Simone, kicked off the show from the nice new lovers compilation, The Heart #3, on Tokyo Dawn Records who are probably about to create a baby boom if they release any more in the series. Another Record Store Day release then followed with the ever interesting Nicolas Jaar giving Grizzly Bear a nice slo-mo deep house twist which led into the outrageously sprawling and quite frankly, epic, Larry Gus remix of Sinkane’s, “Warm Spell” which led into another equally epic track, the soon to be reissued “Boutade” from Mugwump – look out for that on International Feel in June.
The first of three freeloads in this weeks show then dropped the tempo but kept the deepness with Aus, aka Yasuhiko Fukuzono giving Nottingham’s Origamibiro a little remix which paved the way for the ambient delights of Sad City from his excellent forthcoming EP on Phonica. DJRum then swept in with some great future dub (also avaialble for €0 from XLR8) before Aufgang ripped it up with some great twisted house vibes. Walton then showed his early promise was not without foundation with a great soulful bassline banger before Slava decided to twist house music to suit his own demented purposes which led into Sieren ending the show in fine and free, style thanks to the nice boys at Project Mooncircle.
