Julio Bashmore – Simple Love Feat J’Danna

Bashmore’s back, and he’s coming into some form.

A taster from his debut album, now slated for release next February, ‘Simple Love’ is at the deeper end of JB’s work and is better for it. It builds on the strong recent EP from his Velour project with Hyetal. Which is below. For you.

More of this please.

Kowton – And What

Having listened to his recent collaboration with Julio Bashmore, ‘Mirror Song’, we now realise what Kowton’s role in it was. Sparse, skittering drums. Straight up and down. Hear for yourself:
In addition to those treats from JB’s recent EP of of the same reflective name, we’ve also been gorging on a couple of new cuts from Kowton’s Systems of Desire collaborator, Hyetal. Fellow Bristol-resident David Corney has put out a couple of tracks from his upcoming ‘Modern Worship’ album and they’re both worth a few minutes of your time:
All good stuff.

Julio Bashmore @ Electric Brixton, Saturday 16th February

Julio BashmoreThis Saturday Julio Bashmore plays the London date of his much-hyped (albeit brief) UK tour. The secret London location mysteriously alluded to when the tour was announced has turned out to be the not-so-mysterious Electric Brixton, but more exciting news comes in the form of Mr Bashmore’s announcement on Facebook that the mighty T Williams will be supporting.

Young Julio released a sleek Valentine’s remix of JT to warm up for this, and it promises to be a very special night. Sell your car/house/children and buy a ticket on the aforementioned Facebook page, Gum Tree, join the hordes trying to find one on Resident Advisor, or take your chances with one of the shouty men in parkas at the top of the stairs at Brixton tube.

Disclaimer: Touts, shouty or otherwise, are illegal and Human Drizzle does not advise dealing with them.

Velour – Speedway

Bristol boys Julio Bashmore and Hyetal have joined forces once again under their Velour moniker and decided to drop this tune on Christmas Day, of last YEAR.

This is an exciting return to kick off 2013 proper. Judging by the logo seen on the vid, ‘Speedway’ will be released on Bashmore’s very own Broadwalk Records. It’s understated, infectious and is accompanied by some quality vintage racing footage put together by Matt Cronin. Not much more you can ask for really.

Feast your ears on the mesmerising ‘Booty Slammer’ too, our fav from their last EP back in 2010.

Julio Bashmore – Pelican

You can rely on Bashmore for a Friday anthem and he’s given us another here. Kind of.
The B-side to the thumping ‘Husk’, ‘Pelican‘ is more of a low-end haunted house theme tune. That isn’t to say it’s going to send you spiralling, it’s still very much a scene setter for the weekend. ‘Husk/Pelican’ is out on 2nd December on Julio’s own Broadwalk label.
If you fancy seeing tunes like the above live, why not go see Julio on his upcoming tour? Makes sense. He’s playing at some super secret locations in Bristol, London, Leeds and Manc in February, and tickets went on sale today. We’ve got ours already, get involved.

Julio Bashmore – Husk

The man JB is pretty untouchable at the moment.* Back in July Julio Bashmore unleashed probably the tune of the year with the promise that it “shall echo through the ages.” Such has been its success, and that of Bashmore’s other releases over the past twelve months, that you suspect he could have chosen any old nonsense for his next release and everyone would still have been aghast at the genius of the ginger-bearded Bristolian.

However, what he has chosen is not any old nonsense. ‘Husk’ appeared yesterday, and is the third release on the Boardwalk Records imprint he launched with ‘Au Seve’. It is a futuristic sonic journey which encompasses insistent wobbly synths, epic percussion crescendos and Bashmore’s trademark melodic bass plod. It even has a nice flute.

All in all, it’s a winner. Business as usual, then.

*He’s also untouchable at pong… Check out his website for the chance to win a JB set at your houseparty, if you beat him at pong. We’ve tried (A LOT) and think the game may, just may, be rigged.

Maddslinky – Compuphonic

If you’ve just about had enough of Bashmore’s summer smash hit ‘Au Seve (and that’s not to say it isn’t a work of genius – it really is), it’s now time for the second release from the same label, his very own Broadwalk Records. This time it’s served up by a ‘man ripened to the point of absolute dancefloor mastery’. He’s known as Maddslinky to some, Zed Bias to others, and Dave Jones to his friends and family. Suppose it’s understandable.

‘Compuphonic’ is quite simply a stomping piece of tech-house that is, as ‘Au Seve’ was, destined for many repeated plays and big-room antics. It sees Boardwalk Records moulding quite the signature sound, and we like it.

Bobby Womack – Love Is Gonna Lift You Up (Julio Bashmore Remix)

Fresh from his barnstorming set at Worldwide festival, not-even-up-and-coming-anymore Bristolian Julio Bashmore isn’t taking his eye off the ball and has released a very enjoyable remix of a new Bobby Womack track. Taken from Bobby’s new album‘Love Is Gonna Lift You Up’ expertly blends together Womack’s gravelly vocals with Bashmore’s signature stabbing beats and stand-out chord.

Julio’s got form in this area, as flagged up here, working with Javeon McCarthy on 2011’s superb ‘Father Father‘:

Not due for release anytime soon, ‘Love Is Gonna Lift You Up’ is just a taster for new projects from both of them. As for catching them live (separately, unfortunately), thankfully Bobby has now been given the all clear to tour so catch him in Kentish Town in November. Julio, amongst various foreign engagements, is on the bill for a truly special Warehouse Project in late September, someone’s had a good day at the office putting that line-up together…
