Blacksmif – Hoop Dreams

What a fantastic year it’s been thus far for Brighton based ‘Blah Blah Blah’. Not only have the ‘eclectic souls’ that make up the Blah Blah Blah DJs continued to serve up some of the best emerging talent in electronic music on their WeAreBlahBlahBlah blog, they frequently compile a mix series of cutting edge talent that’s always worth checking out, and further, they’ve built quite the reputation for putting on a serious hoedown at their club nights.

As if this weren’t enough, 2012 has seen them develop into a record label too and, judging by the previous releases they’ve had with PanLeft and Reid, they’re pretty proficient at that as well.

To coincide with their fifth birthday, Blah Blah Blah Records’ next release is double A-side ‘Hoop Dreams / Microweight’ from North London music-maker Blacksmif. Both tracks employ the kind of ‘wall of sound’ approach that is so characteristic of much good electronic music at the moment. Although ‘Microweight’ is the jazzier of the two, we’ve chosen to post ‘Hoop Dreams’. Have a listen and judge for yourself, we think it’s dreamy.

Not only have they got Blacksmif to do a special WeAreBlahBlahBlah mix, they had him supporting the fantastic Julio Bashmore for yet more birthday celebrations on the Saturday night just passed. Amazing.

Promising times ahead for both ‘Blah Blah Blah’ and Blacksmif. ‘Hoop Dreams / Microweight’ is out this Monday.
