Children Of Zeus – Travel Light

The great ball in the sun begins to unleash its rays on the third rock..and the Children of Zeus are readying the masses for their forthcoming Travel Light project. The Manchester-based duo have released two tracks to whet the appetite. The brilliantly-infectious „All on you“ which features [KSR] & DRS is a bouncy, key-filled track…

Pac Div – Gorgeous

I have been backing Pac Div since the „Women Problems“ days. The fearlessly creative trio have been busy of late. Releasing a new project (entitled „First Baptist) with visuals & merch to match. Their most-recent offering „Gorgeous“ has a Village vibe..one for you to vibe out to as the temperature steadily rises. WUDDDUP!? FARMINGTON2018

DJ Jazzy Jeff – M3

Jeff remains under the radar when compared to his peers..If he even has any peers. Off the top of my I can’t think of another producer who has influenced the scene from so many different levels; Production, turntablism, mainstream successes in both TV and music..the list goes on. Jeff has seen it all and done…

Blu & Shafiq Husayn – The Blueprint

I’m always interested to hear the results of creative individuals collaborations. LA demigods Blu & SA-RA’s Shafiq Husayn bump heads for this sonnet to their hometown. It’s a meaty 22-tracks of beautifully-twisted, rare groove, spacey-key, rap-fest. Blu’s distorted vocals on many tracks spilling science on the plight. The Blu/Husayn partnership works well. Two stalwarts with…

K15 – Sunbeams

Eglo’s K-15 has been about those dance-floor filler jams for ages now. I for one am glad that he does what he does. This recent compact 3-track release is a hefty slice of that quality material you’d expect from K15. Initially available on 10″ (now sold out) and low-price digital format. Three weighty tracks giving…

.CASTING – RAWJAMZ

Slow jams will always have a special place in my heart. The quiet storm riddims remain as timeless reminders of 80’s love angst. CASTING has captured the vibe perfectly. Slapping beats with occasional feedback for that authentic pirate radio-vibe. Stream, download & throwback. .CASTING | RAWJAMZ by .CASTING

Beautiful Disco – Heavy Rotation

Shouts to Fuzzoscope for this deliciously wavy free download. Coming in at a weighty 18-tracks long, the project ticks multiple boxes with chill wave, soul infused, snare-snapping instrumentals taking heads on the Beautiful Disco tour. Free is always the magic number but take a second to consider the creators and sling some coin. This is…

Maybe Sun – Pool

Word on the street is that Maybe Sun wanted to release a Funk tribute EP for the Summer after acquiring a load of analogue equipment. This is the outcome. That pure, unapologetic, unadulterated funk for your head-piece. Melody Sun established itself way back in 2015 as a platform for both physical and digital domain releases…

Ace Tee – Bist du down ?

I have no idea how, but Ace Tee & this overly-infectious track (with 90’s inspired visuals) slipped through my internet. Kwam.e‚s warm and full-bodied beat completely passed me by. I’m lowkey gutted that this has been around for approximately 8 months without me hearing/seeing. Shame on me. Shouts to the stylist. Bump & enjoy!

VIDEO: Chuuwee – Desire

Shouts to Chuuwee always with the dope production/selection & thought-provoking lyrics. The Cali-based MC can come with the street-savvy bars or kick book knowledge, often flipping between both styles with ease. Desire lays bare the creative personal wants & wishes making „Desire“ an intriguingly personal track. Check the visuals (direction from Alan Michael & Chuuwee)…
