Yunas Orchestra – Scratching The Surface

Oh man, i have been pretty rubbish at checking out new music for quite some time now…its been that hectic. On top of that we still get sent some great stuff. Stuff i like i keep to one side with the aim of posting it up, but then the days and weeks go by and other stuff comes through etc.   Anyway, tonight i had a bit of spare time so I went back to...

Pilooski – Can’t there be Love

A little bit of a funny story behind why i'm posting this blast from the past, and it's kind of purely for my own amusement, essentially I was sat listening to some music and on came the Pilooski re-edit of Dee Edwards Why can't there be Love. As it starts I can see across the room my seven-year-old son tapping his finger along to the opening intro only to turn to me when the chopping...

Ada – …And More

First stumbled upon Ada's 2011 LP Meine Zarten Pfoten. In all honesty, when it first dropped it completely blew my fragile little mind. Just in how experimental it was alongside how polished it was. One of the problems with what I'd classify experimental music is it tends to lack some of the basics for the need to push the boundaries, I guess the word I'm looking for is a balance.   Regardless, it doesn't really...

Lukid – Fela

Been really digging in the crates of late and stumbled back upon this killer cut up by Lukid of Fela Kuti (I can't place the sample right now) and decided to post it.   Despite how great it sounds there isn't anything particularly clever about this cut up, it's a pretty simple chop up and in reality, it's purely and simply a DJ track. But, contrasting with that the track starts out with a frenetic pace and...

Chromeo – Juice

Always found Chromeo a bit of an odd group, not odd weird, but odd in that I felt they always had so much potential but found them slightly the wrong side of tongue in cheek. Don't get me wrong I liked their stuff but I always just felt there was so much more potential in their music then was actually delivered.   That's maybe a little harsh, because it's hard to deny that when they hit their straps they are a...

Idjut Boys – Vorn (A Man called Adam re-edit)

First up, happy New Year from me. I hope you had a great Xmas and new year and the year has started wonderfully for you.   Switching things up a little bit around these parts, and I'm going to kick off my selection with an utterly insane track from way-way back in 1997 – with the A Man Called Adam re-edit of Vorn by the Idjut Boys.   In all honesty, this track completely blew my fragile little mind...

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...

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...
