PYRMDPLAZA Foundry
01.09.14

We would like to introduce a British producer called PYRMDPLAZA. Since it’s the first day of September and we’re starting it fresh and all.

He’s signed with the French label LaRuche Records and very recently released the track “Foundry” via Soundcloud.  Bangin’ ass beat with a heavy dose of Funk to make it swing just the right way. Top it off with some heavy synths and you got the formula down to a science. Great song right here!

The label has been signing some interesting artists lately, so we’ve been keeping an eye on them from. You might want to check out PYRMDPLAZA’s free “Grateful” EP and the track “Games”, which was a contribution to LaRuche’s ‘Free Download Tracks’ series.

Rachel Foxx The EP
31.08.14

We’d like ya’ll to meet miss Rachel Foxx. This gorgeous vocalist from London has a classic R&B style and sounds super classy.

She’s already worked with Evil Needle, El Train and J-Louis flipped one of her songs recently. Rachel Foxx’s “The EP” release contains six tracks and gives you great impression of her abilities. Not much info on this young lady yet, but I bet that’s about to change. The winning tracks for us are “Before You” produced by Hurricane and “Intro” produced by none other than Evil Needle.

Fortunately the whole EP is available as a free download on her Soundcloud page, so make sure you snatch that up and enjoy to the fullest!

prince art official age
29.08.14

So his royal badness sir Prince is releasing two new albums next month. Both “Art Official Age” (solo project) and “Plectrum Electrum” (with 3rdeyegirl) are said to come out on the same day.

Now some of you might already know I’m not the prince of purple’s biggest fan, but I gotta give credit where credit is due. On the track “Clouds” featuring Lianne La Havas he simply tears sh*t up. Mr Nelson brings us that new-age, sexy space Funk that can move young and old. Oh boy don’t even get me started on the recently added track “U Know”. Hot liquid sex poured all over a naked woman’s body right thurr!

On September 30th both albums will be available, but for the time being you can pre-order them here and here.

29.08.14

We at Moovmnt have been a big fan of Mono/Poly from day one. His “Paramatma” album on Tasteful Licks was a breath of fresh air really and when he dropped “Needs Deodorant” that was on the “Manifestations” EP the year after…wow!

Since then it seems to have been an endless wait really. Many year later Mono/Poly finally releases his debut full-lenght album, entitled “Golden Skies“, on Brainfeeder. Now many seem to be blown away by this beat-driven cosmic soundscape he likes to describe as ‘electronic-classical-alchemy music’. Personally I’m not that keen on it. It wasn’t until the very last track that a smile appeared on my face. I’d almost given up hope and wanted to push the delete button. If it wasn’t for Thundercat joining him on the last track “Gamma”…thank god. For those interested you can get your LP at the Ninja Tune shop or travel the road often traveled and get it on iTunes.

Abhi//Dijon EP
28.08.14

Young Abhi Raju and Dijon Duenas, aka Abhi//Dijon, met in high school during their freshman year. Abhi was born in India and grew up in Maryland. He always wanted to be a lead singer in a band, while Dijon always wanted to be a rapper. That’s why he started making beats.

Earlier this week the basement R&B duo released their “Abhi//Dijon” EP as a free download and man does this need to be in your music collection. To be really ‘Honest’…that’s the mawf*ckin joint right there! Out with the Nu Soul and in with the Future R&B? Although the two have limited time to create music together, they are doing their damn best to drop some more music this year.

diggs duke the upper hand other grand illusions
27.08.14

Diggs Duke is getting ready to release “The Upper Hand & Other Grand Illusions“. An EP that follows up his “Offering For Anxious” album that came out on Brownswood last year.

We’ve had the pleasure of seeing Diggs Duke perform a few years ago and it became very clear he’s a true musician. He hails from Washington, where he intimately crafted a small collection of tracks, which tell stories about courtship and intimate interactions. On the EP tracks such as “Forever Love Is Tainted” (produced by Jelani Brooks) sound both rough, yet very heartfelt. Definitely one of the best songs on here together with “The Pinnacle“. A song that brings about happiness with ever note.

Duke is a star at blending Hip Hop and Soul rhythms with jazzy grooves and he is a master at keeping it simple. It’s almost like your reading some of his personal notes. Lyrics are very recognizable and simple plus most songs are short and straight to the point. The EP will be out September 1st and look for the 12″ vinyl at all quality records shops around the world.

Amin Payne Ben Bada Boom Collision Remixed Suff Daddy
26.08.14

Amin Payne & Ben Bada Boom‘s “Collision” album gets revisited by an impressive line-up of producers from all over the globe.

What we have here is ten brand new sounds of which nine are remixes and one is a bonus track. In case you were wondering who is part of this remix orgy, here’s the list. We have Dutch producer Moods (Darker Than Wax) holdin’ it down, French producer Evil Needle (HW&W/Soulection) and last, but definitely not least German die hard (with a vengeance) Suff Daddy (MPM) bringing the Funk. Other names on this remix project are Submerse, Elaquent, Chief, MFP, Melodiesinfonie and Budamonk.

Cascade was kind enough to give us an exclusive premiere of Amin Payne and Ben Bada Boom’s upcoming project. And don’t forget where you heard Suff Daddy’s funkadelic remix of “Uturn Meon” first! Pre-orders are available so get your 12-inch vinyl, cassette’s or digital freak on. P.S. the track is now available for free download!

Dagmxy Asa Marina
24.08.14

Dagmxy is an international trio of producers consisting of DOC Mastermind from Paris, Axion117 from Toshigi (Japan) and Go yama from San Diego.

They all met in 2012 on the Internet, when they were workin on the same label at that time. Last year Dagmxy decided to work on an album together, so they combined forces and created a concept album. The project got side-tracked when one of the producers had complications with his laptop, but after all this time it’s finished. The title of the album is “Asa” and it will be released on Expansions Collective September 3rd. Get your pre-orders here now.

Enjoy an exclusive premiere of the track “Marina” and find out where the title of this project is derived from.

Asa (朝) 
noun 
1. The first part or period of the day, extending from dawn, or from midnight, to noon. 
2. The beginning of day; dawn: sunrise: east to west 
3. The first or early period of anything; beginning: the morning of life. 

Mr Carmack & B Bravo - Something About You Baby
21.08.14

Mr Carmack has been making so much noise lately that sooner or later we just had to post about this producer from LA.

Ever since our homey B. Bravo moved out to Los Angeles, great things have been happening to him. It was to my surprise that on Mr Carmack’s latest track “Something About You Baby“, I heard buddy B on the talkbox. But wait no mention of him anywhere? Well anyway the track is freakin’ amazing and funked us right out of our sucks. Been wondering for a while when a collaboration between these two would come to fruition, but nothing official has dropped yet.

Make sure you enjoy that good stuff though and keep it funky.

Mr Scruff We Are Coming Max Graef Remix Feel Free
19.08.14

Goodness gracious me, that new remix Max Graef just did for Mr Scruff is just bananas, with nuts, whipped cream and a bunch of cherries on top.

After having recruited AD Bourke, Mr Scruff now calls in the help of German wunderkind Max Graef to remix “We Are Coming” of his “Friendly Bacteria” album. Graef was born and raised in Berlin and where he’s been tearing shit up lately. He has released music on labels such as Tartelet Records and his own label Box Aus Holz. On this remix he delivers such an amazing groove with filthy, nasty bass and synths. An instant winner! And to fatten the pot we find a re-tweak of “Feel Free” on the b-side of this 12-inch releasing next month via Ninja Tune.

Both vinyl and digital files are ready for pre-orders and will go out early September. We urge all you DJ’s to pick this up and play at full blast whenever and wherever you can.
