Audio Texture – January 21 2013
So another largely soulful, jazz flavoured show again this week kicking off with Headnodic from Crown City Rockers and his hip hop flavoured vintage fusion vibes which led nicely into the, equal parts sad and beautiful, “The Fall” from Rhye – great video as well. Daedelus then provided a taste of his free download EP he produced for the Scion A/V project and very nice it as well. This led nicely into up and coming, Lisbon based, producer DJ Izem and a glimpse of his new EP before Empt showed his talents by remixing Long Arm for the new deluxe version reissue of last years album, The Branches.
Brace & Kabanjak started the jazz vibes flowing with their great slice of musical beat making “Everything We Do” which led nicely into the deep fusion vibes of The Heliocentrics and a cut from their new EP, “Collateral Damage” and what a tune, can’t wait for the album! More funky jazz fusion then followed in the shape of BRZZVLL and a taster of this Antwerp group’s album due to drop in February on Melting Pot Music. Sample heavy hip hop from L’Orange then ensued which led nicely into Clear Soul Forces who showed that Detroit hip hop is alive, well and with a bright future.
One of the show favourites, Mo Kolours, then dropped some crazy scuzzed out tropical dub before Odd Harmonics showcased the more cerebral side of the drum and bass scene. The new Hermutt Lobby on Eat Concrete is sounding great, loads of chopped about musicality, shrouded in some forward thinking beat making which segued nicely into Falty DL’s, “Straight and Narrow” probably still our favourite cut from his, now available, LP. LV then ended the show in fine Kwaito style due to a tasty little DJ Clock remix.
