This is the debut LP from Francis Harris (perhaps better known by his moniker Adulnapper) and it’s absolutely lovely. The below two tracks are personal favourites, but the entire album really needs to be listened to from start to finish… beautifully deep, absorbing music of the very highest quality. Best of all, you can buy it now
Here’s the official video for Figures’ ‘Blood Brother, taken from their counting frequencies EP. Immerse yourself in its loveliness. You can purchase the entire EP HERE; we highly recommend you do. The figures are Jamie Blanco and Jim Leedham, check em’ out.
This is the first track on Nina’s much-anticipated debut album, and it’s absolutely stunning. If I’m being honest, the rest of the album didn’t really do it for me, but it’s probably worth getting on the strength of this alone. Breathtakingly beautiful.
Taken from ‘Symmetry – Themes For An Imaginary Film’, Johnny Jewels recent epic and would be ‘Drive’ soundtrack. Just caught this on Benji B’s show, this is Blood Sport in all its cinematic, pumping glory. Pwoooar! You can listen to the album in its entirety here.
A big juicy teaser from the eagerly anticipated Fin, featuring deep spacey house purveyor Pional. A stunning foray into fuzzy bass, clicking drums and an ending sure to make grown men weep. The album is due in Feb and can be pre-ordered right about…now.
To be perfectly honest, James Blake’s ‘Limit to Your Love’ kinda passed me by. Maybe there was a bit too much going on within the track for me to be able to appreciate just how beautiful the vocal was, or maybe I just wasn’t paying enough attention; whatever. The important thing is, there’s no chance of me letting this one slip by without the acknowledgement it deserves; this is quite simply stunning, with Daniel Bortz stripping away all but the very barest of essentials, creating a slice of deep house that simply aches with melancholy. Coming soon to Keine Rechte and on Discogs for a ridiculously inflated price fairly soon after I’d imagine…don’t say we didn’t want you.
After almost 7 years meandering towards release, King Creosote and Jon Hopkin’s ‘Diamond Mine’ was unleashed a couple of weeks ago. The collaborative effort see’s gems from the depths of King Creosote’s back catalogue, unearthed and lovingly crafted into (to quote KC) “a soundtrack to a romanticised version of a life lived in a Scottish coastal village”. Devastating levels of atmosphere are achieved with the combination of King Creosote’s shanty like songs and Hopkin’s gentle electronica. The recordings also feature live excerpts recorded in the ‘field’, the field being the coastal town of Fife. It’s available now on Domino in all formats, including a beautiful 180g LP. I highly recommend you add it in its entirety to your collection, but I posted the track I felt most fit on this blog to coax you into your decision. Buy here.
Gorgeous new release from the masters of mid-tempo, melodic house. The package includes mixes from Gavin Russom and Blue Daisy, but for me it’s all about the loose drums, melancholic keys and crazy, breathy vocals of the original.
Out on the 29th November with remixes from the legendary Booker T, The Playerz (DJ Romain (NYC), Pepper and Flava) and M Sadler & Tom Bulwer. This is an old skool house style release with a modern twist. Enjoy!
