Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. Talaboman – Safe Changes: A blissful cut from the forthcoming debut album from Talaboman, John Talabot and Axel Boman’s collaborative side-project. The album’s called ‘The Night Land’ and is out on 3rd March, via R & S Records.

2. Body Music – Just One/Get it Baby (Patchworks Remix): Double whammy here with two tracks from Body Music’s 4-track EP entitled ‘Just One’, out now on Razor-N-Tape. Body Music comprises of Bosq of Soul Clap Records fame and the enviably-named Vito Roccoforte of The Rapture. These two efforts are funky as you like.

3. Krankbrother – Dreamscape (Fort Romeau Remix): Always a pleasure to see a new Fort Romeau remix doing the rounds. Krankbrother’s ‘Dreamscape’ gets the refix with his signature romantic house sound and a splash of acid house mixed in too. Due for release 13th March, wethinks.

4. Recloose & Ezrakh – Geomancer: Brooklyn-based producer Recloose returns to Aus Music with this slinky number featuring vocalist and producer Ezrakh. You can get your hands on this and two other tracks on the ‘Spirit Knows’ EP on 27th February.

5. Parra For Cuva – Unfinished Colours Ft. Other: ‘Unfinished Colours’ is the down-tempo and pensive track from the Berlin-based producer’s latest EP, ‘Mood In C’. It’s out now on Project Mooncircle and available to buy on a number of different formats here.

Felix Dickinson joined the ranks of the Dekmantel podcasts series this week. One not to miss:

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, February 2017

Jam-packed full of goodies this one.

A nod must be made to Cin Cin’s sixth release and their split 12” featuring gems from Elliott Lion and New Jackson. London-based Fold finally releases his 3-track EP on Moxie’s On Loop label, Krankbrother recruit Fort Romeau for remix duties and Matthias Reiling, Art Alfie and Coeo bring the funk.

Sweely’s timeless ‘All The Reasons’ finally gets a release on Distant Hawaii and we welcome back Wolf Music with an excellent offering from Hodini. Not to mention the totally exquisite moment from Z-Lovecraft on South London label No Bad Days.

There’s a lot to digest. The pensive ‘Songs For Knotty’ from Ishmael Ensemble should ease you in nicely…

Top 5 Tracks of the Week

1. DJ Yellow – Ride The Rhythm (Ian Pooley Remix): Ian Pooley adds his Midas touch to this Marshall Jefferson cover from Paris-based DJ Yellow. Compost Records doing the business on this party-starter.

2. Joe Goddard – Music Is The Answer: Joe Goddard’s sophomore solo album ‘Electric Lines’ is coming out on 21st April on Greco-Roman/Domino, and with tunes this catchy it’s certainly one to look out for. For the Londoners amongst you, catch his next solo live show at Heaven on 4th May.

3. Thundercat – Show You The Way (feat. Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins): Thundercat dropped this smooth-as-you-like number featuring the legendary Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald earlier on in the week. It’s a little precursor to his hefty global tour and star-filled LP due out in March – Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell are a just a few of the names featured on the team sheet. Stay tuned.

4. Yaki Incipient – Cracked: This is the second release on new label South Street (see Urulu’s offering for the first) and it’s penned by Yaki Incipient, supposedly an already ‘prominent Dutch house and techno artist’. Mystery aliases aside, the tune’s a thumper and we can’t get enough of the infectious disco loop.

5. Marquis Hawkes – The Burning Light: Marquis Hawkes returns to Aus Music on 10th February with ‘The Sweet Temptation’ EP. ‘The Burning Light’ is the first taster of five tracks in total and it’s sounding euphoric.

Mix of the week’s from London-based Renata and her offering to the Gottwood mix series, just over sixty minutes of balearic goodness, global flavours and chugging house:

Bicep & Hammer – ARACARI

Aus Music’s turning the grand old age of 10 soon and to celebrate they’re presenting a whopping 24-track, quadruple vinyl, triple CD release. 90% of the label artist who’ve released on Aus are going to contribute so you can expect tracks from heavyweights such as Midland, Pearson Sound, Breach and Nick Hoppner.

To coincide with this and Aus Music’s 100th release, Boiler Room are hosting a five-part debut series over the next month or so, culminating in a very special Boiler Room x Aus100 takeover in London town, featuring Nick Hoppner, Marquis Hawkes, Will Saul and one special guest.

First up in the series this week Bicep and Hammer re-join forces to produce the moving and atmospheric gem that is ‘ARACARI’. Stay tuned for the rest of the bunch.

Hawkes & Blake – Flip A Coin

2nd release of 2016 for Aus Music and it’s a good one!

Having dropped the ‘Stormy Search’ EP just last year, dream team (Marquis) Hawkes and (Timothy) Blake have joined forces again to unleash ‘Flip A Coin’ ahead of their ‘Love Precipitation’ EP. There’s a lot going on in this flamboyant affair with its jazzy piano, 90s garage undertones and stabbing synths throughout. It’s ace.

The EP’s out 12th February.

Fold – Calmer Mood

Super-cool sounds coming from NTS resident Fold on his inaugural release on Aus Music.

‘Calmer Mood’ joins two other originals on the nicely-named ‘Netflix & Chill’ EP, with Kassem Mosse bringing the heat on the ‘Dreamscape’ remix:

Bicep – Celeste

It’s time for your weekly dose of Bicep lovin’.

The Belfast boys withdraw from their trademark style for ‘Celeste’, replacing the stomping 4×4 with bongo drums and vocal hooks with drawn-out swoons.  The result is a transfixing piece of dance music unlike anything we’ve heard from them before, carried off like it was their signature sound.  Definitely one to miss-your-bus-stop to.

Catch them at their summer residency at XOYO throughout July, August & September.  Not one to miss.

Bicep – Back 2 U (Tranz Dub)

Following on from the atmospheric ‘Just’ a couple of weeks back, we (in collaboration with the Mixmag soundcloud account) bring to you the second cut from Bicep’s upcoming EP.

‘Back 2 U’ (Tranz Dub) flows through the same vein as ‘Just’ in grabbing your attention beyond the ups and downs of your average house track. It has soaring vocals dipping in and out but the focus is on the percussive bass, carrying you through the eight minutes.

The boys are back on Aus Music for this one with a vinyl release on 24th May.

Huxley – I Want You (Deetron Remix)

As premiered by Pete Tong last Friday night, here’s the beast of a remix of Huxley’s ‘I Want You’ by Deetron, due for release on the mighty Aus Music. For something a little more, light-hearted, feast your ears on the Swiss producer’s recent efforts on Todd Terje’s funky ‘Alfonso Muskedunder’:

For yet MORE Deetron, have a peak at his April residency shows on Rinse FM. They’re class.

Escape – Just Escape EP

The next release on Will Saul’s Aus Music is a real stand out. It comes in the form of the ‘Just Escape’ EP from Glaswegian producer Escape.

The title track does what it says on the tin. The dense bed of atmos on this is quite remarkable, with Daudi Matsiko’s yearnful vocals completing the package. It’s a surprisingly delicate offering from a predominantly harder-hitting label. The great news is that Jacques Greene and Justin Martin are on the line-up for remix duties, the latter bringing ‘Just Escape’ a lot closer to the dancefloor. Stay tuned for JG’s effort.

‘Just Escape’ is joined on the EP by ‘With You’, the synth-stabbing, toe-tapping number that proves there’s definitely more than one string to the Scotsman’s bow. Look forward to hearing more.

EP’s out on 16th February.
