Big K.R.I.T. – R.E.M.

Whilst we wouldn’t have put Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. together with blubstep crooner James Blake, it just about works… K.R.I.T has sampled ‘The Wilhelm Scream’ to great effect for ‘R.E.M.’, a cut from his upcoming mixtape ‘King Remembered In Time’. Like the video, it’s a dreamy showcase for K.R.I.T’s underapdrpreciated flow and the transferable melodies ofrem Mr. Blake.

Since we’re here, it would be a shame not to give Clams Casino’s remix of K.R.I.T’s ‘Moon and Stars’ another listen. It’s THAT GOOD.

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.

Vondelpark – Dracula & Ango – True Blue

Couple of new vids to offer some working day distraction here.
We’ve posted on Vondelpark’s thoughtful ‘Dracula’ before, and they’ve now complemented the tune with a melancholic, filtered mélange of clips of London life:
And one of our favourite, which is saying something these days, Montreal-based producers Ango has put out a remarkably self-centred video for the his latest RnB offering, ‘True Blue’. He struts around, pining after a red-head minstrel (not the chocolate) in the manner of some his more mainstream influences.
‘Serpentine’, the EP the above tune’s taken from is available to download for free here. You also want to be getting your hands on the latest compilation from Jacques Greene’s Vase label, featuring Ango and others, also available a gratis here.
With some home-made CD case art, I can feel a cheap Christmas present coming on…
