Audio Texture – May 6, 2013
A show of two halves today, downtempo, soulful beats and bobs to start before the bassline and twisted house kicked in to shatter the quiet. Starting this weeks show was a track from the wonderful new project from Peter Wraight, arranger for the Matthew Herbert big band and his new project The Webster Wraight Ensemble before we dropped the most soulful cut from the intriguing recent release by Clouds on Ramp. Now we’ve been bigging up the Omar album recently from the sampler and it looks like the music is living up to the expectation. The album is a real soulful journey across the styles. Ty then followed up with some great Fela sampling hip hop before US soulboys Myron & E made a great first impression.
Dexter was next up with the pysch folk sampling beats from his pleasingly different new beat album on MPM, swiftly followed by some blues sampling beat science from the new Zo release, coming soon on Cascade. Fremdtunes are keeping things rolling nicely with the soon to be released Planes material before Dub Club got all classic dubwise style and reminded us constant “progression” is not always necessary. Herva and his twisted blend of house and techno started the uptempo section and it’s nice to see someone so detached from the latest fashions doing his thing before Actress’s finest moment for ages/ever ensued in the form of his classic house with a subtle twist remix of Legowelt.
DA-10 then added a break, beats and bassline before Chaos/Order got totally nasty with their epic slice of UK grimeyness from the new Grime 2.0 compilation on Big Dada. Fourtet was then responsible for giving Rocketnumbernine a crazy Afro bassline refix before Drumagick got all samba bassline on us as only a couple of brothers (literally) from San Paolo know how.
