Audio Texture – July 26 2012
Kid Koala kicked off the show with his raw, sample based, blues killer ‘6 Bit Blues’ before Belleruche kept the vibes mellow and the Ross PTH mix stretched out the soulful goodness. Submerse then put more emphasis on the beats but protected the soul before Sculpture took Snorkel’s insistent ‘Wet Tongue’ and remixed it in fine, unrelenting style. Hip Hop vibes were then the order of the day with the all too short, Madlib produced Freddie Gibbs track ‘Terrorist’ before Paul White and Homeboy Sandman’s ‘A Weird Day’ was given a fresh vibe with The Room Below remix. LV then enlisted Okmalumkoolkat to provide the African lyrical goodness to his UK bassline beats.
Old Apparutus have kicked off their new label, Sullen Tone in more than fine fashion with ‘Derren’ giving you enough reason to want to know more. Senking then gave us all a lesson in low end vibes but included some lighter touches to partly soothe the underlying menace. Spinachprince are a great new music and beats crew signed to Eat Concrete with their musical touches making them stand out from the button pushing crowd and ‘Bearings’ is just one of the fine moments on their new Executive EP.
Om Unit’s finest moment to date ‘Ulysses’ has been given a great Sweatson Klank remix before Gang Colours showed his talent with a great remix of Leon Vynehall’s ‘Gold Language’. Now we have to admit to not being massive on the Egyptology album but ‘Airborne Corridor’ jumped out a mile with it’s extended, hypnotic, Balearic goodness – big tune. Medline then ended the show in fine style with his version of ‘People Make The World Go Round’ which features on the great new MPM compilation, Where The Wild Creatures Meet.
