Burial & Four Tet – Unreleased

We’ve been going a little Four Tet mad on these pages recently but, if you’ve given his new LP a spin, you’ll forgive us we’re sure.

As part of his madman eight hour Rinse FM follow-up show, he dropped an unreleased cut from his collaborative period with Burial:

It’s as atmospheric as you’d think, with a strong seam of UKG running through it. See what follows it (for the remaining seven hours and 56 minutes…) here.

Ultraista – Gold Dayzz (Maribou State Remix)

With the tidal wave of trap and hurricane of house, we haven’t listened to enough of this kind of music recently:
London-based duo Maribou State have continued to surf the momentum from their recent EP ‘Scarlett Groove’, out on Southern Fried Records, to put together this really, really lovely remix of Ultraista’s upcoming release, ‘Gold Dayzz’. Ultraista are the new outfit of Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and he’s taken their impeccable taste in electronic music with him, signing off on this meandering, comforting, tuneful five minutes of electronica.
Maribou State also kicked off a new mix series last week, ‘The Honey Collection’ and it’s a perfect pm listen. Up-and-comer fLaKo makes an appearance, as does old-timer Burial, and you can catch some of the above EP in there too:
Soothing stuff.

Brolin – NYC

In this age of information, the further you cloud yourself in mystery, the more hype you are going to create. Artists that provoke intrigue cause a stir. Take Burial’s long-standing penchant for anonymity, or Jai Paul’s relentless avoidance of the media.

Blend this pre-requisite with the 21st Century compulsion for producing your own work in your bedroom or your parent’s garage, and you’ve got Brolin. Hearsay tells us his real name is Koko B. Ware (named after the retired wrestler who carried a parrot on his shoulder into the ring), he’s yet to play live and he doesn’t give interviews. You can believe however much of that you want, but the truth lies in the quality of the two tracks he’s penned thus far. Here’s the video to his sparse and stripped back (but sweet and soulful) debut single ‘NYC’:

We should all keep our ears close to the ground for his progress. He’s supposedly been working with David Pye of Wild Beasts production fame, a collaboration with Luke Abbott may be on the cards, and his first gig is in London on 17th October at The Seabright Arms, which is very sold out. Even Sinkane from Yeasayer fame has gone and made a remix of the debut single. That and his other track ‘Lisboa’ are below.

Jacques Greene – Ready

Oh Jacques, you keep ‘em coming. Following his pioneering RnB-flecked (haven’t said that in too long) house beats from 2010/2011, Montreal’s Mr. Greene has switched things up a bit for his new three-track EP, ‘Ready’, out a couple of weeks back on Martyn’s 3024 label.

The eponymous title track, premiered on Martyn’s Essential Mix earlier this year (worth a listen irrespective of this track; ‘deep dutch’ in a good way) is all a bit Burial in its darker, less vocal tone. Jacques keeps the texture that made his earlier work such compulsive listening, and this is again a tune best pumped out of speakers rather than headphones, but he’s dialled down the more frivolous, Azealia Banks side of things.

Blow away those Monday blues with this Olympic-sized stomper (note: Human Drizzle is in not in any way affiliated with the large sports event taking place in London at the moment; any reference is entirely coincidental. Litigation would be futile, given the state of the HD coffers.)

Cooly G – Playin Me

‘Playin Me’ is the soon-to-be-discharged debut album from South Londoner Cooly G and all signs are pointing towards a heavyweight LP. Released on Hyperdub (iconic home to innovative artists like Kode 9, Burial and Zomby) on July 17th, it marks the next stage in the evolution of her brand of broken house and UK Funky. Anyone that can work in a cover of Coldplay’s ‘Trouble’ onto a Hyperdub release is pushing some boundaries somewhere.

Out of the tracks already floating around the ether, we particularly like ‘Landscapes’, a woozy tour of her vocal skills and post-garage beats. The no-frills sound reflects its origins in her home studio (or ‘living room’ as she calls it) and has pleasant echoes of her early work that hooked us in, including the masterful ‘Love Dub’.

The official release party for ‘Playin Me’ is the insanely well-appointed Bloc festival, which tells you all you need to know about Cooly G’s direction of travel…

Shlohmo – wen uuu

Shlohmo (not to be confused with Shlomo – the British beatboxing artist often seen mugging around with Foreign Beggars) is a, you guessed it, young up-and-coming beatnik making waves over here and in the US. As with the rest of this rich generation of DJs, though, there’s some serious substance behind the hype.

His early remixes of Burial and Drake still sound hot fresh, setting the tone for his follow-up releases: a chillwave atmosphere with a few jagged edges to focus the mind. He has a new three-song EP, ‘Vacation’, out on 7th February on stateside imprint Friends of Friends with a limited edition 12″ to follow with remixes by Human Drizzle fave Nicolas Jaar. We’ve had the pre-released single, ‘wen uuu’ on repeat, a sprinkling of RnB vocals will always get us grooving…

You can also catch Shlohmo at the launch of a new monthly night by Earnest Endeavours at CAMP in Shoreditch, together with label-mate Salva. Worth braving the trendies for.
