1. The Cure – Carnage Visors
This soundtrack really touches some deep and obscure vibes, it’s not your usual song by The Cure. A 20 minute instrumental track, raw and repetitive.
2. Dr. Dre – Deep Cover (Instrumental)
One of my favourite tracks from the Hip Hop 90’s era, I remember seeing the video on MTV jams when I was around 12 years old, there is a version feat. Snoop dog that is badass as well. I was, and still am, amazed by the roughness of the drumbeat and how funky the groove is. The word goes around that Dr. Dre doesn’t really like this track and has performed it maybe twice, I think it’s one of his best.
3. Voices Of East Harlem – Wanted Dead Or Alive
Once that chorus drops and the bass line hits I start getting chills all over. If you have taste for Funk, this is a juicy one to sink your teeth into.
4. Scientist – Dangerous match 1
I recently discovered this artist, don’t know much about him, this track is been on repeat for the past days.
5. DJ Shadow – Hindsight
Amazing ambient sounds and raw drums, Dj Shadow has been a great influence for me.
6. Kraftwerk – Man Machine
Just amazing. Something so simple, yet with a lot of emotion. A masterpiece by the virtuosos.
7. Maze feat. Frankie Beverly Twilight
Summer vibes all over this track. Can’t really say when Or how I came across this.
8. Gregory Isaacs – Night Nurse
Classic roots, one that I have been listening lately again. I float with this vibes, it’s all about the groove and the bouncy rhythm.
9. The Prodigy – Lift Me
I’m not sure when this was published, but my jaw dropped when I heard it. This is the sound that got under my skin. Pure real rave vibes from the 90’s right here.
10. Q – The voice of Q (Instrumental)
Space all over this track. 80s vibes, what more can I say.. Ambient sounds and funky bass lines, this is the stuff I grew up listening to.
Diego Moreno – Sand Box (Foreign Language Records)
Foreign Language Records welcomes Berlin based Diego Moreno for a new EP that features remixes from Laesh and Jamal H. Moreno is behind the respected Digital Delight Records which has held showcases everywhere from BPM Festival to Panama City. His own fresh music comes on the likes of Adam Shelton’s One Records and New York’s legendary Nervous, where he has delivered his own unique house music. Kicking off the EP is the excellent ‘Sand Box,’ which has a textured analogue feel and wobbly synth lines. Airy hi hats bring height to the drums and squelchy pads add another layer to what is an original take on machine made house music.
Then comes ‘Bend,’ a brilliantly off kilter track with a freaky lead synth line squirming about the mix. The drums are raw and rock solid, the percussion sharp edged and jacked up. It makes for a high impact club cut designed for maximum destruction. First of the remixes is Jamal H, a young Manchester artist with a cool tech house edge and various well positioned tracks on Traxsource. He draws on early Chicago house for his raw, chattery and percussive mix of ‘Sand Box’, with a ducking and diving bassline and slinky groove.
Robsoul alumnus and Italian producer Laesh then skillfully reworks ‘Bend’ into something equally physical, with pinging kick
Diego Moreno – Sand Box (Foreign Language Records) Release: 17th December 2018 Cat No: FL009
