This slow-mo house gem comes courtesy of those effervescent Bostonians Soul Clap, as part of Catz & Dogz ‘Clapz II Dogz’ package, coming soon on Glass Table. Needless to say, it’s pretty damn lovely.
Now I’m a pretty large fan of Solomun; the Bosnian-born Croatian has always delivered in the bouncy-tech-house-no-messin; category, thank you very much. But I didn’t see this one coming; a ridiculously splendid edit of Bran Van 3000′s ‘Astounded’ which squeezes out every possible strain of tortured emotion from Curtis Mayfield’s stunning vocal. Lush, in every sense of the word…no idea when it’s out or even if it will get a proper release, but it needs to be shared….plus there are two other gems on the EP – hunt ‘em down!
It seems we are spoilt of late, on the back of some awesome edits from Nico and a wicked free R&B EP from the boys a while back (Bobby etc..) comes this; the Soul Clap and Friends FREE.P. Navbox is definitely the track for me in this!
The downloads are all used up on Soundcloud so a nice little Friday treat anyway! Enjoy.
This is one of my records of the weekend. Hell, of the month!!!!! NRP sound like nobody else in the game, this is from their ‘Doesn’t Matter EP’ – just out now! Every time they come back with something it’s even more musically aware, more interesting, more refined. Don’t get me wrong – Owe Me, Greg’s EP….I’ve loved everything they have put out, it’s just amazing to see their sound evolve. This edit from Zev (W&L) is amazing. Check out the other tracks HERE. Then go buy it.
Nicolas Jaar has released an EP of 6 disco edits, which he’s letting us download for free! What a nice man. Visit the ‘free music’ site at http://www.wolflambmusic.com to listen and download.
By far one of my favourite producers at the moment, the live set I saw from young Nico last month blew me away. The music of Mulatu Astatke is no stranger to his productions, it’s clear he draws a great deal of inspiration from this musician. This edit is as yet unreleased. It is one of my favourites, that and his remix of NRP – Owe Me, if you haven’t, you should check that out too!
