Two years ago we introduced you to K15 and streamed some exclusive tracks in the process. Well he’s back with his brand new single “Bordeaux” including two tight remixes from Kaidi Tatham and Glenn Astro & IMYRMIND. As a bonus you get the track “Hall Of Memories” to complete this four track release on WotNot.

K15′s single has all the sophistication the name implies, a bubbling bass line with an earthy jazz undertone. Kaidi builds on the chord progression in his synth-laden remix with broken beat percussion, while Glenn Astro & IMYRMIND provide a fierce sounding house remix that’s perfect for the clubs.

Follow this guy on Soundcloud and get the digital version now or waith for the vinyl release that will be out soon!

Multi-talented singer/songerwriter/actress Sy Smith is back with her fourth album called “Fast And Curious” released on her own label Psyko Records. The album was entirely produced and co-written by Mark de Clive-Lowe. This right here is a nice fusion of soulful house, broken beat and downtempo electronic soul. Fellow soul singer, Rahsaan Patterson, joins Sy on her interpretation of Billy Ocean’s boogie banger “Nights” (Feel Like Getting Down), but one of our favorites is “Teena”. One of those albums you have to give a listen and buy on Bandcamp if you decide it’s worth it.

“Breathtaking sparkles, glimmering fractions. What melodical madness causes such satisfaction?”

Yes, yes…finally it’s here. A monthly selection of gems for everyone to enjoy in the form of a 1 hour mix (give or take a few minutes). Since the number 12 is also known as the number for perfection, we have chosen a birthstone for each month. So if you’re into diamonds by the dozen or you like rubies in the rough,  you’re in the right place.
January’s birthstone is the Garnet. It’s name comes from the 14th century Middle English word, gernet, meaning ‘dark red’. Enjoy our first mix of the year and spread the word if you dig this.

Seravince consists of producer/keyboard player Vincent Helbers and drummer Richard Spaven who have been working together for quite some time now. The band is heavily influenced by Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop and as you can hear Broken Beat. Their upcoming album, “Hear To See”, will have guest vocals from Renee Neufville (Zhane) and Sharlene Hector. When we got the opportunity to share this unreleased song entitled, “Unrequited Love”, featuring Renee Neufville with you guys we were more than happy to do so. Sit back and enjoy this lovely song. Oh in case you’re in the neighborhood. This Friday the whole band, including Renee Neufville and Sharlene Hector, will be performing live at BIRD in Rotterdam!
