Great to see Manchester getting some recognition, and rightfully so. Expect much more from Frameworks and co this year.
Download the original version of Somehow on First Word here.
Preview and purchase the Colman Brothers album here.
Matt Frameworks yet again proves that he is one of Manchesters finest new producers with a stunning remix of Colman Brothers incredible single El Nino.
The Wah Wah 45s mainstay artists Mat and Andrew Colman have played in just about every good beat orientated band from the last decade, so it is never any surprise when they create a strong track, and their early release El Nino fits fully into that box. This teamed with the Frameworks touch makes for excellent listening.
The El Nino remix appears alongside remixes by some of the UK’s most influential artists (including Tall Black Guy and Scrimshire) on the Colman Brothers Remixed album which is now available for download.
This Saturday sees Nottingham’s soul-fuelled live music-loving clubnight – Sounddhism – bring its most heavy weight lineup yet. Groovement has always covered genres from all across the musical spectrum, and I can’t help but think this lineup is a perfect embodiment of that. From the the dub vibes of The Resonators, to Manchester’s very own Framworks and the amazing soul voice of Ady Suleiman to Push and Run’s breakthrough dj/producer Pedestrian. There’s not many nights that can claim to have 2 floors of live bands and acts playing all the way through to the small hours, Sounddhism truly is a music lovers night.
Check the guest mix from Pedestrian.

Our pal Frameworks is about to drop his first EP for the world famous First Word records – check a teaser for it below and his Groovement show here.
Frameworks has teamed up with the hip hop duo, QnC on his latest 7″ (due to be released on Hero Records). Here is a taster of the A and B sides of this dope record. Both have those sounds we have come to know and love from Frameworks. The addition of two top quality MCs really makes this a record worth buying!

Some of the most cinematic beats you will hear for a long time.
FRAMEWORKS aka Matt Brewer brings a selection of beats and bliss for 90 minutes or so, including his own work with the likes of Sabira Jade and Blu Rum 13. A gorgeous accompaniment to last week’s Mecca:83 and Dabrye x Illum Sphere podcasts.
