Stream // Groves – Paperback (BaskyBasky Remix)

  I just got this track sent over to me by the BaskyBasky lads. It’s a great slow-burning electronic edit that centres itself around the original vocal. Get to know: The Camberwell-based duo BaskyBasky have been collaborating for three years, following their remix of Portico Quartet’s Steepless under the name Crookes View.  Ben Webster, formerly the Ital Duke and founder

STREAM: Jameszoo – Jheronimus

Jameszoo is a mad bastard. I mean that as a massive compliment. His forthcoming Hieronymus-Bosch-inspired EP for Rwina is an amalgamation of jazz/folk/hip-hop/electronic styles in Dimlite-esque fashion, but that’s already too much description. Stream it here and hear for yourself. Order the 10″ here Jameszoo Soundcloud

DOWNLOAD// Sounddhism Podcast #13 – Mr. E Xmas Mix

Sounddhism podcast #13 – Mr E by Sounddhism on Mixcloud Yeah, self-promotion. Sorry. I was asked by the people at Sounddhism if I would put together a Christmas mix for them, so I did. I’m not really the type to listen to Christmas music, so I’ve tried to keep it different from your average Chrismix. This involved redefining what constitutes

VIDEO: Daito Manabe x Nosaj Thing ft Kazu Makino – Eclipse/Blue

Daito Manabe has swiftly put my frenetic mind at ease with his incredible visuals for Nosaj Thing’s excellent new track, ‘Eclipse/Blue.’ A quick bit of research on Manabe revealed to me that he is also responsible for the last video that blew my mind a bit

DOWNLOAD: Kutmah’s All Flako Beat Set on NTS Live

Last week Kutmah dedicated his hour-long slot on Dalston’s NTS Radio to playing nothing but hit tennis partner Flako’s beats. With one of the illest DJs playing a whole hour’s worth of shit from one of the illest beatmakers, you really can’t go wrong. Flako has an incredible talent for creating tracks that balance heavy beats, stomping basslines, beautiful melodies

STREAM: Kadence – Rhetoric

Keeping focus on the Detroit Metropolitan Area after the previous post, check Kadence’s Rhetoric album, which features production credits from Georgia Anne Muldrow and long-time collaborator (and Detroit figurehead) Dabrye. The album carries that gritty sound that is channeled in so much of Detroit’s musical output, with the signature f0nk and rawness delivered by the album’s incredible producers. Cop it.

DOWNLOAD: Noyce – Moment’s Good

Noyce’s Moment’s Good is the first release from Ta-ku’s Sunday Records Project, and it’s absolutely beautiful. The EP is packed with blissful guitar samples, muffled vocal snippets, and clattering percussion, all arranged into a lush downtempo composition that provides the perfect soundtrack to a hazy-headed (post-SwingTing) Sunday. Download it here.

DOWNLOAD: Low Leaf – Alchemizing Dawn

This girl is so fly. Any girl who can look this good and play keys and harp and sing such a dope song, all at the same time (see video below), is what I would consider to be marriage material. Drooling aside, she’s just dropped a beautiful 7-track album, for free download. Go get it, while I go and propose
