Stripped back loveliness from DJ W!ld; this is probably the strongest record on the EP but the whole thing’s definitely worth a listen. Catch it when it drops next month on The W Label.
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.
Without doubt one of my favourite producers at the moment, Oskar Offerman finds time out of his essential WHITE and Aim label projects to drop this superb remix of a fairly average record. Doesn’t do an awful lot but builds beautifully… and just listen to that relentless bassline! So good… almost good enough to make me feel better after this epicly damaging Bank Holiday weekend (but not quite). Full package out sometime this month on Rue de Plaisance.
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?
I’m a very happy chap today, as the promo for Christian Loeffler’s LP has just landed in my inbox. I raved about his EP earlier this year, so to say I was bang up for getting stuck into it is somewhat of an understatement. Happily it doesn’t disappoint, and ‘Blind’ is just one of the many stunning tracks I could have highlighted. Will be doing a full review for Resident Advisor soon and keep your eyes peeled for the release, out in June on Ki Records.
This is only the second record from the newly launched Never Learnt label, but they’ve already made quite an impression. This is probably the pick of the cuts, but there’s not much in it between this and the b-side ‘Vital Ital Rub’. Deep, brooding and satisfying – just like house should be – out 23rd April (vinyl only).
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
