So quite the mellow selection this week kicking off with the killer title track from the thoughtful new Yoggyone album which we like a lot. Sunday morning listening was then the order of the day first with a bit of Ky, whose new album floats and swirls around you in a dreamy, jazz sort of way. Matthew Halsall then kept up the mellow jazz vibes with the title track from his incredible new album which was on repeat most of last week. Brazilian pysche business then ensued courtesy of a brilliant Mr. Bongo reissue of the Flaviola E O Bando Do Sol, back in the day, rarity – good digging.
Things then got all 2012 first with a vocal excursion from Lapalux and a taster of his new Brainfeeder EP folled by soome bass heavy chilled vibrations from Kromestar and J5ive before Simon12345 & The Lazer Twins blurred the lines between live and electronic production to amazing effect with ‘First’, make sure you check the EP on the excellent Doumen records when it drops. Reset Industries is a new label set up by some of Belfast’s finest, David Baxter and Boxcutter included, and their first release is a stellar album of, less is more, beat making from Defcon. Beat Inc. then got a bit rowdy compared to the rest of the weeks show with ‘Black Tea Morning’.
The new album from Robert Glasper is a wonderful thing and some healthy remixes have just dropped and we particularly like the Georgia Anne twist before Mo Kolours showed off his ongoing mission to fuse great beats with some great roots music. I’m not going to say much about the Simba & Milton Gulli track as I know a well known label is chasing their output and we’re sure you now know why. Jacaranda Muse then kept the deep spiritually inclined vibes rolling before Emanuele de Raymondi showed that in the right hands electronics and musical instruments are like toast and marmite.
