Pursuit Grooves – Bess

Here we have a brand new album from the excellent producer and singer Pursuit Grooves. I really loved her last album, last year’s ‘Felt Armour’ which seemed to go under the radar for most. The new one is a tribute to Bessie Coleman, the first Black American female pilot, who was an early aviator in the 1920s. I love a good concept behind the music, fuels the imagination no end. Pursuit Grooves’ music glides along beautifully conjuring up images of Bess doing her thing. There’s even a nice little vocal track about Bess, ‘Standing Firm On Wings’.  The music crosses house, bass and r&b boundaries effortlessly and is a pleasure to listen to.  Check it out at the link below

Rawtrachs – Archaia-6

Music zine creater, label runner, radio host and all round nice guy Anand Patel aka Rawtrachs has a new album out you should check. The album’s full of dancefloor gear all of it produced with a gritty, lo-fi, DIY mentality. There’s plenty of variety too with vibesy housey numbers, grimey bits, techno moments all present. All that and it’s yours to download for £1.49, can’t complain at that.

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…
