Studio Barnhus @ Corsica Studios 03.09.16

If you’re still on the hunt for a plan Saturday, put down the listings guide. We got you.

Trouble Vision have done it again with a Studio Barnhus label showcase down at Corsica Studios. Axel Boman, Kornél Kovács and Pedrodollar, founding trio of the Swedish label, will all be gracing the decks on Saturday night, bringing their house-but-so-much-more-than-house sound to South London.

Kornel’s gone and done a taster mix to whet the appetite:

As the accompanying RA profile described it, ‘House music for the end of summer’.

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, October 2015

This month’s playlist feels very seasonal, very autumn-winter collection. If this were our English GCSE coursework we might even crowbar in a misuse of ‘pathetic fallacy’.

Whatever. There’s some dreamy, horizon-expanding electronica from Thrupence on there, guiding you through a classic Lindstrøm disco remix to the basement sounds of Bicep and George Fitz.

Bumpf over, give it a listen…

Ben Gomori – Human Drizzle: The Mixtape, September 2015

What a Friday treat we have for you here.

In advance of his set at next week’s Human Drizzle Presents – alongside NVOY and a VVVVIP special guest announced on Monday – your boy Ben Gomori has given us an exclusive recording of his Temple Islands set from Bestival this year. Nothing but big things.

As you’d expect, it’s packed with disco and house hits, the Erol Alkan mix of Connan Mockasin into Caribou’s Our Love was a highlight for us. Big finish too.

Track info is here and you’ll see an exclusive future Monologues Records (Ben G’s label) release peeking through the list – this comes complete with a video of its first ever road test.

We CANNOT wait to see Benz in action next week. You’d be a fool to miss it. Get an advance ticket now for the eminently reasonable £8.

Hunee – Hunch Music

It’s not often you get a debut album of this quality.

‘Hunch Music’ is the inaugural album from Korean Berliner Hunee and it’s a real journey. Going from the ethereal to the bassy and back again in 11 short tracks, it’s an LP that reflects his record store roots and eclectic tastes. Listening to it you can see why his superb b2b with Floating Points at Worldwide Festival, which we were honoured to be there for, worked so perfectly. Both selectors of the highest order.

Pick of the bunch for us is ‘Crossroads’. Give the album a listen and let us know what yours is. Out on Rush Hour Music now.

Dan Beaumont – Spirit Talkin’

Dan Beaumont is kind of a big deal. He runs Dance Tunnel, owns pizza empire Voodoo Rays, holds down an NTS radio show, the guy gets around. In between all of that though, he has a talent for throwing out the odd belter of production.

Spirit Talkin’ sees Beaumont push an uncompromising bassline, stabbing claps and a spine-tingling vocal together to provide some real hands-in-the-air moments. It’s a lean, no-frills house cut, perfect for energising a crowd in the small hours.

It’s out next week on Spencer Parker’s Work Them Records and will no doubt be played by the man himself at Farr Festival the following weekend.

Magic Mountain EP

We could not be happier to bring this next EP to your attention:

In addition to being Human Drizzle Presents stalwarts (through their Paradise Forum collective) and general bosses, Joe and Eamonn are also putting out their own as-yet-unnamed material. SPOILER: It’s great.

‘Magic Mountain’ is made up of four smooth, disco and soul-infused house tracks that speak to their extensive record collections. Our early fave is ‘Popcorn Riddim’, an urgent cut that carries you along with it.

The EP is awaiting pressing as the first release of their Sugarhouse Records imprint and we’ve put ourselves down for one of the first batch. You should too.

Found Festival – Brockwell Park 13th June

Just over two weeks now until Found Festival presents five carefully curated electronic stages of electronic music at its new home of Brockwell Park in South London’s Brixton. Block out Saturday 13th June in the diary if you’ve not already.

The line-up is now complete and with the likes of George FitzGerald, Nick Curly and party promoters Feelings hosting stages, it’s looking very tasty indeed. Not to mention big hitters Guy Gerber, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Genius Of Time on the main stage. Here’s how the full line-up is looking:

Tickets can be bought here. There’s only a limited number of £35 tickets left before they move on up in price, so you best get to it.

Delve into Motor City Drum Ensemble’s Boiler Room to get you in the mood:

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.

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…
