Kenny Larkin – Chasers
I love Kenny Larkin’s music.His tracks are intelligent, musical and most definitely works on the dancefloor.
Charles Bradley – Strictly Reserved For You
R.I.P. the screaming eagle. I have never heard someone sing with such passion as Charles Bradley. He conveys emotion so effortlessly with his amazing voice. He will be missed.
Flying Lotus – SexSlaveShip
Los Angeles by Fly Lo blew me away when i first heard it. I kept playing it over and over.This is probably my favourite track on the album. Deep, lush, minimal, beautiful.
King Tubby & Lee Perry – Drifter Dub, Pt. 3
Two heavyweight of dub. Love the bass and digital pads punctuated sporadically by the brass section.
Björk – Lionsong
Bjork is amazing. Constant innovation and forward thinking towards music/multimedia. She keep raising the bar.
Goran Bregović & His Wedding and Funeral Orchestra – Gas Gas
I saw bregovic live at a festival a few years ago, i knew nothing about him. I was gobsmacked. The entire crowd was moshing and crowd surfing to balkan folk music. Never experienced anything like it. If you ever get a chance go and see him live, you won’t regret it.
Jessy Lanza “Keep Moving”
Why isn’t all pop music as good as this. It’s catchy and well produced. Jessy had a great run on BBC Radio 1’s residency, she played loads of great and interesting music.
Mark Bell was a genius. Freak is peak time. Love the bassline.
Amadou & Mariam – Coulibaly
Great groove. Dimanche a Bamako is a great album produced by the great Manu chao.
Modeselektor – German Clap
Techno with a ragga beat. This is such a simple tune but one that is so well produced.
Blamhaus – B-Haus002 EP (B-Haus)
Building on the momentum of the well-received first release, B-Haus is back with a second sizzling EP from the label boss Blamhaus. Blamhaus hails from South East London but takes his musical cues from far and wide, including Northern Soul, dubstep, blues and acid. He has a special love of bass and has been supported by plenty of DJs from across the scene. His second outing is another mind melting techno offering that doesn’t mess around. The opening track on the EP is a heavy slice of melodic techno. The fantastic ‘Fourpointfour’ pairs a substantial bassline with glacial pads, all the while being underpinned by skippy hi hats and a hefty 808 which will work to lock in any dancefloor. The slick and compelling ‘Mind Cycles’ is high tempo funky techno with real bass weight. Racing kicks and floating mids have tumbling bass below that sends your mind into a spin. Last of all, the atmospheric ’Dum Dum’ is deep, spacey techno with a liquid feel. Loose but textured percussion, swirling pads, driving beats and a throbbing sub bass all have a sci-fi feel and add up to a proper dance floor trip. The techno Blamhaus deals in is a mixture of physical and cerebral and thus leaves an truly lasting impact.
Blamhaus – B-Haus002 EP (B-Haus) Release: 9th March 2018 Cat. No. B-Haus002
