So back from the holiday and back into musical action once more kicking off this week with some of that new/old soul business belted out by the powerful voice of Marta Ren. Debruit then laid down the summer hip hop vibes recorded with Shamon Cassette whilst he was in New York, which led nicely into the ever impressive Homeboy Sandman riding a twisted, yet compulsive break. We were then happy to finally share a track from the forthcoming TG Mauss album which we’ve been sitting on and enjoying for the last few weeks, check it when it drops on the ever interesting Karaoke Kalk in July.
Seaworthy & Taylor Deupree then dropped the tempo off the radar as usual with a cut from their lovely, hyper-chilled new album before, almost reluctantly, we popped a cut in the show from the new Bob Marley Legend remixed album, a thoroughly shameless and misguided project but with a decent Photek remix! A Ninja Tune 1, 2 then ensued with a couple of the labels rising stars, Raffertie and Emika both of whom are really coming of age. We then pitched up a nice new Hanami track from the forthcoming Project Mooncircle EP to get a little house mix rolling.
Different Marks kept the dreamy vibe flowing with “To Be Without Me” from the excellent and inexplicably free “Untitled” album on Pet Recordings – if you fancy a bit of super credible/dance pop vibes then we heartily recommend it. The Hello Skinny remix of Owiny Sigoma Band then followed which paved the way nicely for some post punk/disco not disco politically minded grooves from the new Phil Asher affiliated project Aisling & The Haze and we’re looking forward to hearing more of that. U-Ziq then sent the show spinning off into a parallel, electronic fusion, universe before Christian Prommer finished things up in a more grounded fashion with a cut from his new Compost Black EP, about to drop soon.
