Son Of Sound – New York Iz All I Know (Aroop Roy Remix)

Londons Delusions of Grandeur has long been one of my go-to labels releasing some of the best deep house of the last decade (even though they only started in 2009). Artists like the Revenge, Manuel Tur, deep Space orchestra and 6th Borough Project have all graced the label at various stages. Chopped disco, deep stripped back fidgeting tech house works outs? You think of it they've featured it.   Ok, so the labels got pedigree,...

MTNS – Waves

It's quite rare I get sent an E.P and I'm genuinely stuck on which track I want to feature but it does happen and the Like a Stone EP  from Brisbane based Australian Trio MTNS is one of those occasions.   From the minute I first put it on two tracks jumped out at me, Waves and Slow Motion they are both absolutely wonderful tracks. I'm going to opt for Waves as the feature but regardless you...

Kauf – Regrowth LP

So regular readers will know we've long been fans of Kauf and his melancholic melodic emotion-laden brand of Electonica and finally we have an album and surprise surprise it's quite wonderful.   Regrowth as an LP is that rare thing in modern music a cohesive journey. In a time where, I'd say, 99% of albums feel pieced together after the fact an album like this where it's clearly been curated to fill out the details of a...

Joe Clockwork – Tools EP (Lordcore 03)

It's been a while since we posted last but there is a very good reason for that, I've had some health issues resulting in me having to go into hospital. The result was I've not been allowed to do anything for the last few weeks other than reading, watching TV/Films and listening to some music.   The plus side is that I have indeed listened to a shit ton of music and I've got some...

J-Walk – Soul Vibration

One of the things I liked most about DJ'ing was hearing what other DJ's played. If you were playing back to back that was even better, a deck each and vibing off each other, sure there is always a little bit of competitiveness in there but it was always interesting to see what the other DJ pulled from the bag.   Occasionally one of you would pull a new track that would make the other (and crowd)...

COEO – Flesh World

Berlin-based Toy Tonics have been making a fair name for themselves of late, and I recently picked up the wonderful Flesh World EP by COEO from their Bandcamp page, deep sultry thick sweaty house….mmmmmmm! sweaty.   I do love looping tracks, and Flesh World the main track is a mesmerising zoned out groove, reminiscent of the early DJ Sneak,  and the other 83 west Records crew. By that I mean it's just a constant loop, with subtle...

Dynasty – Outlaw (Wildcats Pt II)

The last few weeks have been insanely busy, work social and family and as such the blog has had to take a major backseat, purely for my own sanity, but now I have a few months clear I want to really focus on music again and am going to drop back into the fray with a super sick slice of east coast style hip hop. Dynasty – Outlaw (Wildcat Of II) I always carried a...

Kauf – Limestone

I think I speak for both Fourbearsjr and myself in stressing how important emotion is in the music we enjoy.   I understand that emotion is a very difficult quality to pinpoint in words with any subtleness. Love, Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Pain! All great words that convey an emotional point and leave no real room for interpretation. But when you move away from the written medium emotion becomes much harder to explain. Yet it's something that really...

Touch Sensitive – Visions LP

There was only ever going to be one artist for me to blog about today, September the 15th, the release date for Visions by Touch Sensitive. Most readers will know I'm a massive fan of Touch Sensitive and I've literally been waiting years for him to drop this album.   Am I pleased with it? Hell yes, one of the things I really like about De Francesco's Touch Sensitive Project is how rather than toeing the regular...

MC Cormac – Yes I Will [prod. Zack Young]

I know things have been a bit sporadic of late, but as mentioned elsewhere we've both been on extended breaks for family, holidays and work. We took a decision a while ago to stop posting every day and concentrate on just posting when we really wanted to share something – so for me, today is the day and i'm sharing a quality piece of hip hop from MC Cormac.   Hip Hop is such a debatable...
