Mother Tongue

Mother Tongue is a brand new record label and vinyl pressing plant run by Patrick Gibin out of Verona Italy. They currently have a couple of great vinyl only releases out in the wild that are seriously good.

First up is Pezzate #001, four wicked disco boogie edits from Twice & Volcov. No titles or details on these, just great music that speaks for itself. If you’re a fan of Patrick’s Black Aroma series you’re going to love these. Click here to secure a copy.

The second release is shrouded in even more mystery than the first. All we have is 黒舌, I’m not sure if this is an artist name, not much to go on here. A listen to the music may well give you a clue who’s behind it, I think I know, though I won’t spoil the fun. Two tracks of groovy dancefloor goodness. Check it out at this link

Tino Contreras Quinto Sol – Musica Infinita

Gilles Peterson has just announced a brand new label, Arc Records. The label has been set-up specifically to reissue lost gems Peterson has stumbled across during his many years as a record collector and DJ. The label’s inaugural release is this mind altering piece of music from Mexico’s Tino Contreras. The only track we have to listen to right now is stunning opener ‘Sinfonia Del Quinto Sol’, which greets us with a heady concoction of jazz and trippy psychedelia. A tune Peterson fans will recognise from his radio shows over the years. The full album is due for release in January, but until then you can pre-order at the link below.

Nu Era – Evolve

Of all of Marc Mac’s many aliases, it’s his Nu Era guise that always gets me the most excited. He’s been releasing his unique blend of Broken Beat mixed with that warm Detroit Techno sound on and off since the mid nineties. This one is another top quality Nu Era album, edging more towards the techno side of things than some of his previous offerings. Check ‘Closer to Mars’ for my highlight pick, but the whole album is warm, fuzzy and very lovely.

Jonny Faith – Night Lights

This new one by Melbourne’s Jonny Faith has proved something of an earworm for me over the last few weeks. If you follow the blog’s Spotify playlist, you might recognise lead track ‘Fana’, as we featured it a few weeks back. It fetures a great vocal from Mohamed Camara giving a lovely Guinea flavour to the uptempo track. The second single, ‘Stay In Your Lane’, featuring the lazy vibes of Lady K on vocals has just been added to the preview. The whole set is set to be released on the 22nd November with a further 3 tracks still to come. You can of course preorder in the meantime from the bandcamp page at the link below

A THGXTMID Mix: Daniel Venom Maunick – Foundations (Broken Beat Mixtape)

Daniel Maunick presents “Foundations”, key and influential bruk tracks selected and mixed by Far Out’s in-house producer. Daniel, aka Venom, has been a key part of recent albums by legends Azymuth and Marcos Valle, as well as producing broken sounds under the name Viper Squad.

Obsessed by jungle in his teens, he turned his attentions to a fresh and emerging sound from West London at the turn of the millennium. Much like the jungle scene this new style was based on dirty bass, broken beats, warm Rhodes and scattered snares.

Fuelled by artists like IG Culture, Afronaught, Phil Asher and a wealth of drum and bass pioneers at the helm, this new culture fused jungle, house, soul, boogie, latin and jazz resulting in some of the most exciting and futuristic music to come out of London.

This selection features music from drum and bass protagonist’s 4hero (both Marc Mac and Dego in a variety of guises) and Sonar Circle (Domu) as well some of the scenes most important artists including IG, Jazzanova, Kaidi Tatham and the Bugz In The Attic crew.

Daniels debut solo album “Macumba Quebrada” is out now on Far Out Recordings.

Future Bumps

Modern Urban Jazz or Mjazz for short was originally set-up by Justice in the nineties to put out forward thinking drum n bass. The relaunched label has been releasing music of a variety of styles and tempos for a good while now.

This latest one for the most part takes in a lovely slow-mo house with a hip hop breaks kind of vibe. And then there’s the closing cut ‘Locomotives’ which ups the tempo somewhat and by all accounts is an absolute belter. Available as a 3 track 45 or 6 track digi. Hit play and thank me later…
