Jamil Jamal [DJ Khalab Remix]
This is a great collaboration between an amazing group of improvisors and awesome textural production. I had the pleasure of playing with Yazz a couple of months ago and it was a great experience.
Jon Hopkins – Emerald Rush
One of my favourite musicians! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Cherif Hashizume who co-mixed this record and it blows my mind a little. Incredible emotive approach to electronic music.
Four Tet – Two Thousand And Seventeen
Four Tet has such a grasp of sample based music and this tune is a perfect example. Ideal after getting back from a night out or the morning after!
Jaga Jazzist – ‘One-Armed Bandit’ (Live with Britten Sinfonia)
A mastery in arrangement, timeless!
Mark Guiliana’s Beat Music: Spirit Animal
I’ve been a fan of Mark Guilliana’s music for a long time and this band in particular are an inspiration. A great blend of groove and improvisation through textures.
All I Need Radiohead
Undoubtedly my biggest musical influence. This tune in particular is a beautiful song with a level of production that perfectly suits the meaning. The attention to detail is incredible.
Dominic J Marshall – Mean To Me
A very good friend and fellow bandmate 🙂 Dom is a very unique musician with a style like no other.
Miles Davis – In a Silent Way/It’s About That Time
One of the true greats. Miles’ late 60’s early 70’s albums are for me the perfect blend of improvisation and soundscapes . This record has a sound world that is constantly evolving and creates layers of interest.
African Man (Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer Remix)
I’ve always been a fan of techno and this blend of ricardo villalobos and Tony Allen is an amazing match.
Bala Matinba (Maalem Mahmoud Gania)
I’ve recently been listening a lot to Gnawan music and this is a perfect example. The meditative approach and the constant rolling groove really relate to me. I’ve found a lot of similarities between electronic music and this genre and have taken this into my approach to writing.
Hunrosa ‘We Know’ (Remixes From Danvers, Lavan & Etherwood) WahWah 45s
As bottom end provider for Cinematic Orchestra and Paper Tiger, Hunrosa (AKA Sam Vicary) already has something of a pedigree for a man of such tender years. His music glides effortlessly between Bonobo at his most sonorous, Jon Hopkins at his most ethereal and Flying Lotus at his most freaky. Currently based in Manchester, his music captures the wild organic senses of his Cornish childhood, anchoring it with a darker 2am undercurrent.
Following the success of ‘Ransom’ (a firm favourite of BBC 6 Music’s Tom Ravenscroft) Hunrosa returns with his newest offering ‘We Know’. An eerie, ethereal track full of haunting atmospheres, Vicary enlists Austrian percussion maestro Manu Delago, who lends his hang drum expertise to the proceedings weaving it amongst the twisting, intricate beats and Anna McLuckie’s delicate vocals.
The original is accompanied by a white label 12” containing three reworkings from burgeoning producers Lavan, Etherwood and Danvers. Newcomer Lavan is up first, moulding the organic melodies and earthy percussion into a dubbed out, soulful and bouncy 4/4 number. Hospital Records golden boy Etherwood (whose band Hunrosa is also a member of) brings a late-night liquid DnB atmosphere into play, harnessing the raw emotional power of the lyrics, as reverberating piano chords strike out into the darkness. Having turned the heads of Bradley Zero and Gilles Peterson with his recent releases, CoOp and WotNot Music’s Danvers resets the atmosphere with a zen like extended intro, before launching headfirst into a hypnotic and enthralling looped rhythm section. The groove locked in place, it rises and falls with precision, joined by spaced-out synths throughout the nine-minute duration, allowing the majestic instrumentation to gather pace as the spine chilling vocals drift overhead.
