Shout out to Soulection for putting out some newness once again. This time it’s Grand Rapids resident Sango who releases his “Trust Me” EP. Now I gotta say straight from the bat that this release is not entirely our thing. However though, we were pleasantly suprised with Sango’s “Lovely” which we featured on our 2nd “Gimmering Fractions” mix as well.

We’ve been spreading the news about Robert Glasper‘s new album for a quite a while now, simply because it’s the best album we’ve heard so far. Now it might not be be for everybody, but I believe the fusion of Jazz music with Soul and Hip Hop is incredible on “Black Radio”. With all these covers from Nirvana to David Bowie you’ll still be amazed how Glasper this album sounds. The experiment is of course Robert Glasper, Chris ‘Daddy’ Dave, Casey Benjamin and Derrick Hodge. Who knows in 20 years we’ll look back on this as another Blue Note classic. Finally “Black Radio” is available worldwide via and other digital music stores. It’s also being released on wax for the vinyl enthousiasts.
Today is the day that the Darkhouse Fam lads from Cardiff officially release their “In & Out” EP on Earnest Endeavours. Been bumping this for a while now and very nice to hear Om’Mas Keith on some freaky shit again. Also like the “Sticky Trees” interlude with Vanity Jay and of course nothing can beat that stunning B. Bravo collaboration entitled “Like No Other”. I’m not saying this just because Adam is my homie, but honestly everything I’ve been hearing lately has just been straight butter. This dude can do no wrong! Make sure you pick up this EP on or buy 12-inces of pleasure at Rush Hour.

“Breathtaking sparkles, glimmering fractions. What melodical madness causes such satisfaction?”
Part two of our monthly “Glimering Fractions” mix is a fact. February’s birthstone is ‘Amethyst, which by Ancient Greeks was believed to protect the wearer against getting drunk. Had to leave out a few songs, so that’s why it came out 10 minutes shorter than expected. Hope you all dig it and if so be so kind to share it. It’s available for download on our Soundcloud page or you can stream it via Mixcloud as well.
With only one more week to go, I know a lot of you can’t wait for the release of Robert Glasper‘s “Black Radio” album. All we can tell you is that it will be one of the best albums coming out this year. Jazz on a whole new level incorperating soul, hip hop and many more styles…all fusing it into one. February 28th is the day and since we’re just 1 week away, we thought we’d give you another taste of that good stuff. This lovely little bonus track entitled “A Love Supreme” should hold you guys over right? Next week we’ll be posting some more Robert Glasper Experiment for sure.
Somehow “Black Radio” is already available through the Dutch iTunes store, but not in the US yet. We wanted you to hear the entire bonus track this time and urge you to buy your own copy next week!
Late last night when I was vast asleep, Mister Bibal upped a little taste of his upcoming “Failure” album onto his Soundcloud. A few days ago I listened to the entire album and it was sounding very promising indeed. Enjoy “Demonstration” featuring Black Spade for the moment, because you’ll have to wait a few more weeks for the album to drop via True Flav. You can however already pre-order a limited handmade, signed CD copy over at www.misterbibal.com.

We’ve been keeping a close eye out for Arnhem’s most funk influenced producer for a while now. And it is with great pleasure to formally introduce to you Henning. One of those Dutch producers who should be on your radar and if he wasn’t, then I hope now he is. His new “Villains Day Off” joint is of the Evil Genius Soundsystem Volume 1 release which just came out. The project consists of Henning, Jaystar, City Lights and JeeJaa. Henning came correct with the best track on the whole release if you ask me though. You can snatch a free download here by the way.

1-O.A.K.‘s debut album just came out via Honor Roll Music. Very nice Cali vibe going on here on “Special Request”. I suggest everybody to go download this motherf*cker for FREE right now. Can’t go wrong for that amount right. Download link is working again so make sure you download over here!
Yesterday Mez hit me up with yet another dope song he and his buddy Jonny Sass recorded. Eventhough Jonny doesn’t have a lot of time to record, they managed to squeeze out “The Right Way”, which is available as a limited free download here. The sound is very raw, but I hear lots of potential with these guys. More music from Mez can be found here by the way.

So I got an email from Dean from Darker Than Wax (Singapore) informing me about their latest release from Midnight Runners. The duo consists out of Yordan and Munir, both hailing from the valleys of Bandung (Indonesia). Their “Overdive” EP is on that boogie/funk vibe and it’s good to see that Asia got the Funk. You can purchase the EP over at their Bandcamp page.
