Audio Texture – January 28 2013
Weedy of 40 Winks kicked off this weeks show in his own inimitable, sample chopping style before we gave you a little taste of the new I’m Not A Gun album with the title track “Sub-Tones” – surely a future Balearic classic? Millenium then provided a peek of their new EP with some bass heavy, melodic vibes. Houndstooth is the new Fabric night club record label and they are about to drop their debut 12″ in February and if the Call Super debut’s quality and deepness are sustained they will get all the support we can muster.
TM404 then treated us to some deep, .dubbed out, poly rhythmic vibes with the geekily entitled, “303 303 303 606” before Jose James changed the styles with a long, sultry slice of soul from his great new album on Blue Note. Keeping the soul flowing we then dropped the standout track from the self released, down under future soul crew, Hiatus Kaiyote. Soweto Kinch then waded in with some proper jazz from his new EP dropping soon on his own label.
Al Kent is coming through with a new Disco Love compilation on BBE and “The Healing” by North By Northeast demonstrated why it is one of our favourite disco compilation series of all time. Taprikk Sweezee then provided the abstract, future disco flavour with a little help from a Kontan Chok remix. Bonobo then dropped a wonderful slice of building, melodic house which led nicely into the really promising Pharoahs from LA and their deep, Balearic finish to the show, “Ahumbo”
