We love Axel Boman. We want to give him cuddles; and it’s records like this that reinforce that desire. Warm, loopy and emotional, Looks What You’ve Done To Me pushes all the right melancholic buttons while simultaneously making you feel real good about life; no mean feat we’re sure you’ll agree. Part of his Magic Black Bowman EP forthcoming on Hypercolour, you can get the vinyl 25th February and the digital a week or so later.
This is the next release on my Tenth Circle label, and I’m proper excited about it finally coming out; it’s been a long time in the making. I’ve always wanted to have a Greenville Massive release on the label, so for it to happen makes me feel all warm inside. Hopefully these records will give you a similar feeling. Out 3rd December.
And you thought it would be an entire month before we got round to posting anything… oh yea of little faith…
We like Kris Wadsworth over here at Getdowngood, enough even to wake us from our October slumber and bring you another exceptional piece of music from the US producer. Taken from his Fingerprint EP (out 5th November on HypeLTD), ‘Fan Mail’ kicks, swings and grunts – quite literally – in all the right places. Sexy.
Look at him, all smug and smoking and sexy and stuff. Mind you. I’d be pretty smug myself if was turning out records like this. Baby Prince (aka W+L’s Gadi) drops this absolute belter on somethinksounds in the next few weeks, and if I were you I’d snap it up quicksmart. Encompasses everything I love about Gadi’s production with a bonus R&B-flecked vocal turn from Charlie thrown in for good measure…
This has been out for a couple of weeks now, so this is less of a heads up in advance and more of a youhavetohavethisrecordinyourlifesogooutandbuyitrightfuckingnow. Essay’s production just gets better and better, so who knows what he’ll be able to do a few years from now. Probably find whatever’s inside the Higgs Boson or something ridiculous like that. For now though, let’s just enjoy his music… and then purchase it here.
Don’t you just love a tasty little dollop of simplicity from time to time? I sure do… and it don’t come much more plain and simple that this little beauty from everyone’s favourite dwarf-hippo type thing Moomin. This time on the lovely AIM Records, ‘Don’t Fly if it’s Foggy’ is little more than a wobby bassline, a few airy pads and his trademark fuzzy percussion, but it works an absolute treat.
You know that kinda sick, mournful feeling when you see a guy or gal so totally, ridiculously hot that it kinda makes you feel a little bit sick? No?? Ok just me then, but that’s how I feel pretty much every time I hear a new record from Sei A. Again it’s drenched in nostalgia and lush, swirling atmospheres – another bass/house hybrid, but a totally exemplary one. And this is only one of the records on the EP – there’s a whole other one for you to find out about all by yourselves… and that one comes with a remix from Axel Bowman!! Swoon.
Sei A plays Basing House alongside Jichael Mackson, Friday 3rd August – visit RA for tickets
Gadzooks! It’s a new EP from the lovely Chopstick & Johnjon… and not a moment too soon. By all accounts their recent lack of output has been down to their waiting for a new studio to be built, so I imagine there will be quite a few people jiggling up and down with happiness about this news. The EP is called Versions; expect lots of big, warm basslines, a fair amount of hip-hop style vocals and one extremely exciteable young woman, only one of which can be found on my pick of the bunch, At Last. Out mid June, expect to hear it plenty before then…
Sometimes all you need is a real nice groove to make you feel good about the world, and that’s exactly what Anthony Collins has provided here, along with the requisite slice of melancholy needed to really get my juices flowing. Taken from the Exhibit A EP – the debut release on the Scissor & Thread-affiliated Natural History imprint – it’s even got ace artwork. What more could you ask for?
