Have you heard… Likwid Continual Space Motion – Earthbound

It’s been quite a while since IG Culture’s had an album out, so it’s great to see his Likwid Continual Space Motion project get the album treatment. I really loved the EP that came out last year, so am really looking forward to hearing this in full when it drops on the 15th June. For now you can listen to one killer track, ‘Weapon X (More Gems)’ to get a taste of what’s coming.

Exclusive Premiere – 67100 – Morning

We’re pleased to share this first track ‘Morning’ from the excellent new EP from 67100 for the always on point Dope Tones label. The ‘Through The Window’ EP will include three new tracks each representing three different moments and three different feelings according to the course of a sunny day. Musically the set hits somewhere between a broken beat and a jazz vibe. As well as the three original tracks, there will also be a great remix of lead track ‘Morning’ by Steven Wobblejay. The EP can be pre-ordererd from bandcamp at the link below.

A Good Day to Shop Bandcamp

As bandcamp are waiving their fees once more for 24 hours, it’s a good day to have a bandcamp slurge. Here are my top ten picks for where to spend your money…

Another Mix In The Cloud

Another one I forgot to hit record from the start, but only missed a couple of mins on this one, half the lovely Butterfly track though, oh well! Hopefully you can still get into it! Starting off with a few recent jazz purchases, almost like a rollover from my recent jazz meet set, and then hitting a banging old school house vibe early doors and calming it down a touch for the remainder. So in other words, all over the shop.

Have You heard… Alton Miller – Souls Like Mine

This only dropped yesterday, but 3 listens in I can tell this is going to be a favourite of 2020. The press release notes state that it’s one for fans of 3 Chairs and Kaidi Tatham and I have to agree that’s a good comparison. Alton has obviously been influenced by the soulful broken sound of the likes of Kaidi but he adds a Detroit house twist all of his own. Purchase at the link above.
