Joe Goddard from Hot Chip has produced this shifting remix of the Invisible’s track ‘London Girl’. The original has never before been released and will be exclusive to their performance at FABRICLIVE on the 5th March. A mysterious start opens up to fantasising landscape before delving into some distorted oscillations.
I am pleased to post an exclusive mix for Pejhy. Sam King is a Bournemouth based dj (Samson), promoter (Get Loose) and producer (Wetrooms). Due to the difficult decision of what to incude, Sam had the idea to select a small batch that would spell something. It’s a five track mix of deep house delights, featuring some tropical jazz grooves. PEJHY!
The following track is Wetrooms debut remix release on it_Tizz Recordings, a swaying deep bass and reverberating brass gentle giant. It along with their other early productions, such as a competition remix of Riva Starr’s ‘I Was Drunk’, which I have been playing recently, sound big potential.
I came across this after listening to some wonderful sound found at K&V. Sygriae, who is also a member of Jazzanova, released the Monopoly EP on Room With A View in July 2009. It features two groovy jazz-house originals and a remix each. Marlow is another RWAV artist and has created a gentle builder that includes tropical rhythm and tight square bass. A big melodic synthy breakdown tops it all off.
Available from Boomkat for an amazing £1.95 on 12″, while stocks last!
Dj Orion has been making waves for a little while now, recently featured at TheFader and Dutty Artz. He has just released a new album called Carajo Colombia, and you can get it for whatever you want to pay for it!
‘The album, ‘Carajo Colombia’, consists of thirteen tracks. The album focuses most notably on Cumbia and it is presented in a more club fashion, remixing funk, hip-hop and Baltimore Club music intermittently to produce a high-energy coagulation of musical magic.’
Here is a lovely little number. Nice Puerto Rican salsa with a cheeky lick of bass. Sabrosito Papa!
New week, new beats to move ya dancin’ feets.
Ghostly International have announced ‘a compilation of rare, unreleased, and hard-to-find music from their vaults. Highlights include Matthew Dear’s “Don’t Go This Way”, a tasty leftover from the Asa Breed sessions; Michna’s “Quadruple Gold Dipped”, an alternate version of the Magic Monday album-opener; and The Sight Below’s “Blown”, another piece of perfect melancholia from the prolific producer.’ Get your free download at ghostly.com, or just my favourite below; a previously unreleased instrumental version of Junior Boys 2006 remix. It’s a dreamy journey across an expansive environment where the imagination can run free.
Jamie Lidell’s fourth full-length album ‘Compass‘ will be released on May 17th 2010. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, New York and Canada, and it includes collaborations with Beck, Feist, Gonzales, Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear and Pat Sansone of Wilco. Compass is a fluctuating love song, starting with and later returning to a gentle chorus, everything else inbetween is a familiar upbeat epic noise.
A double whammy post of aural and visual wonders.
Joe Flory aka Primary 1 (Blog/MySpace) has gradually been gaining public awareness following his debut release ‘Hold Me Down’ in 2008 on Erol Alkan’s label Phantasy. Since then he has released a duo of light hearted party tracks in collaboration with Riton (Who’s There? and Radiate). Recently however saw the free release of ‘Mess Detective‘, a 15 track collection of demos and early works. It’s a mix of dreamy delights and stompy funk tracks, which shows real promise for his forthcoming album and UK tour supporting Ellie Goulding.
I was delighted to spend a day with Joe when I helped out with the filming of a video for the track ‘Foaming’, which has yet to see the light of day. An infectious track with clear accessible lyrics and sounds. He’s a super nice guy and talented too. His ability to play a wide arsenal of instruments that assist him in the writing and performance of songs, along with his voice, begin to reveal the potential waiting to shine.
Here’s my favourite from the mess album. An instrumental layered guitar track with warm fuzzy bass rolls and sweeping gentle synths.
Also worth a listen are two mini mixes available on his mixcloud.
All of this posts visuals are courtesy of Audrey Anastasy, whom I first came across when I saw two tracks from the mess album had utilised some of her motion pictures. The online portfolio is full of colourful illustration, photography and animation. The layering and mix of media gives the work an appreciable handmade aesthetic that is full of enchantment and fantasy.
