Matches for: “Barnt” …

Barnt – Chappell

Chances are, if Joy Orbison and Tim Sweeney get behind a record, it’s going to be a cracker. Barnt’s ‘Chappell’ was first aired in Joy O’s essential mix back in July (well worth a listen) and has since featured in Sweeney’s Beats in Space 15th Anniversary compilation. It’s an intense percussive workout that alternates between powerful stabs and the full range of clicks and snares. Mesmerising stuff.

Barnt is the latest signing to Joy O and Will Bankhead’s label ‘Hinge Finger’, with ‘His Name’ becoming the 5th vinyl-only release. The B-side is pretty tasty too, yet more weird and wonderful drum-machine sounds.

Found Festival 2015

Saturday 13th June – a date for the diary. Found Festival returns in the new environs of Brockwell Park in Brixton. Same top line-up, different grassy patch to dance on.

Your boy George Fitzgerald heads up a stage this year and, propped up by big boys like Barnt and KiNK, we’re sure he’ll bring the house down. His recently released album would appear to confirm that:

To be honest, the KiNK live show is worth the entrance fee alone (this is almost too good to watch/listen to at work):

The pick of the other stages is NTS’s effort, a showcase of their deep bench of DJs. Bossman Mr Wonderful and globetrotter Bradley Zero will undoubtedly on the money.

Basically, see you there. The perfect pick-me-up as memories of this begin to fade…

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, December 2014

As if there wasn’t enough HD in your life this week (assuming, correctly, that you’re coming to this), here’s our latest monthly playlist to feast on.

As per, there’s tunes galore. Slow burners from Floating Points and big room melters from Barnt, all nestled neatly together in one handy playlist. There’s also some longer mixes from xxxy and Fort Romeau to give you a taste of what’s to come at Plan B on Friday. Last advance tickets are available here:

Catch you there.

Weval – Easier EP

Weval‘s ‘Gimme Some’ has been been on constant loop at HD HQ, with all of them hand-claps and it’s subtle, slow build-up. It’s strangely addictive.

The full ‘Easier’ EP from the Dutch duo is now available to stream and it’s well worth a visit. Full of catchy electronic meanderings, there’s a dash of Caribou’s Swim about it. It’s been a big year for Kompakt with releases from Dauwd, Marc Romboy and Barnt, but this understated affair from Weval shouldn’t go unseen. It’s difficult to choose a favourite track from all four gems. Quite like that artwork, too.


xxxy – toys mix #15

Well isn’t this a conveniently timed, wonderfully measured surprise? xxxy, of Human-Drizzle-Presents-at-Plan-B-December-5th fame, has been invited, and duly obliged, to spin an hour’s worth of tracks for TOYS (Take Off Your Shoes).

This is so good too. He has, perhaps, dumbed things down a notch from the usual high-energy releases and mixes that we’ve come to expect from him, but this is no criticism. The mix features so many great tunes, but there are three that we want to highlight. First, ‘Marshmallows’ by Mr Beatnick.

And then two of the tracks of the year; C.P.I’s ‘Prosecco’ (Barnt remix), and ‘Clinton Space Funk’ by Mount Liberation Unlimited.

Worth an hour of your time today. Worth a few hours of your time next Friday.
