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.

Seven Davis Jr Charms Road Kill Vol. 4
19.08.14

Los Angeles-based producer Seven Davis Jr slaps a slab of filthy Funk right in your face with his latest track “Charms” of the 4th volume in the Hit+Run “Road Kill” series. Dope uptempo instrumental that reminds me a little of some old AFTA-1 stuff.

The compilation album contains 27 exclusive and unreleased song from producers from all over the world. They represent Brainfeeder, Leaving Records, Ninja Tune, Alpha Pup and many more.

“Road Kill” vol. 4 will be released on September 1st and is already available for pre-order. Oh and the digital version on the album contains a non-cd bonus track from MNDSGN.

Submotion Orchestra 2L84U
18.08.14

Submotion Orchestra is a 7 piece band from the United Kingdom. For those that don’t know, they play a fusion of bass heavy Electronica, Jazz and Soul music and a whole lot more. And they play it quite well.

They’ve received worldwide recognition and have played festivals around the world. Following their previous two albums, Finest Hour and Fragments, Submotion Orchestra return with “Alium“, which will be released on Counter Records on November 3rd.

The album was written over two years in the remote Welsh countryside and miss Ruby Wood’s vocals sound nothing short from angelic. On the song “2L84U” she simply sounds amazing and more good news. It’s a free download! Pre-orders are available (2xLP vinyl, CD & MP3) via Ninja Tune for you early birds.

Floating Points Sparkling Controversy Eglo
18.08.14

Sam aka Floating Points drops a surprise 12″ entitled “Sparkling Controversy” on Eglo Records, which is a dub version of an older track “ARP 3″ of his Shadows EP. It’s been floating around (pun intended) for a while and has mostly been played by DJ’s. Great news for all you die-hard fans huh.

We were quite surprised that the producer from London decided to release this single-sided release quite shortly after having released “King Bromeliad” / “Montparnasse” last month. Never the less this gives us the perfect excuse to do a Floating Points combo write up on both the releases!

The single is available now on vinyl or digitally and can be purchased on the Eglo Records Bandcamp page.

Jordan Rakei Groove Curse EP Soul Has No Tempo
15.08.14

Jordan Rakei‘s long-awaited sophomore “Groove Curse” EP has released today on Soul Has No Tempo and what a wonderful piece of work this is.

His modern take on Soul music (with a dash of Reggae) makes this multi-instrumentalist one of kind. Simply put, that Groove Curse EP sounds super refreshing. I mean who doesn’t love that raw, warm sounding Fender-infused vibe? The first single “Street Light” was off the hook, but ‘She told me add the bassline’…are you kidding me? Man what a freakin’ tune right there! And “A Tribe Called Government” with those drums? Let it be know that this fellow from Brisbane has made it to the top Soul artists in our lil’ book. Right up there with D’Angelo, Bilal and Musiq.

We urge you to purchase Jordan Rakei’s Groove Curse EP, for the simple fact that we think it’s well worth buying.

Bilal Sirens II Adrian Younge Ali Shaheed Muhammad
14.08.14

The homey Bilal has returned, this time with the help of Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest).

Mr. Oliver’s new song “Sirens II” sounds majesticly marvelous and might just be his best work we’ve ever heard. So much emotion was poured into this track that my goosebumps are getting the shivers. Must have heard this little slice of heaven at least 10 times by now and still this gets better and better! Let Bilal take you away on what might just be one of the most exciting new musical adventures you’ll experience this year.

Not much is known about future projects, but perhaps next week on his birthday Bilal will share some insight.

Galimatias Ocean Floor Kisses
12.08.14

Galimatias from Denmark has been one of those producers, who I’ve actually stalked to see what’s up with his upcoming project.

He told me quite recently that he is working on finishing a new EP with a female vocalist. And most likely “Ocean Floor Kisses” is the first track of this soon to be released EP. Wonderland chords on some Final Fantasy ish and Alina Baraz‘s vocals chopped to bits. Marvelous groove and just imagine how incredible the rest of this EP is going to sound.

More info soon, but for now just follow Galimatias on Soundcloud and share with your friends.
