1. Sauce81 – Dance Tonight: Next up on Alexander Nut’s Eglo Records is this wonderful slice of boogie/disco/funk served up by Tokyo-based producer Sauce81. Pre-orders here.
2. Chaos In The CBD – North Pole Cafe: South London (via New Zealand) producers CITCBD have teamed up with friend and collaborator Jon Sable to present a new imprint, In Dust We Trust. ‘North Pole Cafe’ features on the first EP from said label and it’s both soulful and melancholic. Head over here for the rest of the EP.
3. JeanGa and George – Compromise: As premiered on Dummy Mag yesterday, London-based duo JeanGa and George drop this hypnotic, piano-heavy number as one of the lead singles off their debut album,’European Repetitive Beat‘ (out today).
4. David Douglas – Highway Of Love: Big year for Dutch producer/artist/video director David Douglas with his new album ‘Spectators Of The Universe’ being released on Atomnation on March 24th. His live show sounds like a (technical) blast so keep an eye on his socials for tour dates.
5. Z Lovecraft – Myriad: An all-South London affair here. Rhythm Section family member Z Lovecraft is providing the goods for No Bad Days’ third 12” release, ‘The Creator’. ‘Myriad’ is on the B-side and it’s super smooth.
And for the longer listen. This week’s edition of Harbinger Kurt’s Bloop radio show – an exploration of ‘the wonderfully opaque landscape of electronic music ’ – is filled with some excellent unsigned material, popular forthcoming releases and some of their older favourites too. It’s a goodie.
