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

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…

Repair Your Soul – Episode 2

Episode 2 of the Repair Your Soul show with Neil Sherwood.  We start with a lovely little jazzed up hip hop beat from Cat Therapist.  Move through the monumental new one from Kamaal Williams, that guitar solo damn!  Touching on a couple of nice DNB tunes and a slightly pitched up Linkwood.  Before hitting the broken house techno stride with a few killers in the 130s.  Enjoy the ride!

Cat Therapist – Springtime
Kamaal Williams – Snitches Brew
Harvey Sutherland – I Can See (Rings Around Saturn Remix)
Footshooter – Mars (feat. And Is Phi)
Linkwood – Fresh Gildans
Max Graef – Midi Lisa
Overmono – Quadraluv
Bad Channel – A
Pacific Coliseum – Ocean City
Partner Music – Patu
Kaidi Tatham – Freddie Can’t Run Away
Feeling Kréyol – Las Palé
Kevin Murning – Mode’s Arp (190 In The Polo Edit)
Alex Attias & Sidi Touré – Agabory

Cat Therapist – Jobs

A cool little beat tape on the way from ace Birmingham based label and fanzine Futurepast Zine. The artist behind this one is Cat Therapist, a new one to me. At time of writing five tracks are available, all jazz injected, experimental, hip hop vignettes. The full set will be released on the 6th December as digital or limited cassette. Pre-order at the link below.

Pinty – Tropical Bleu

So here we have a brand new MC from Peckham with a new EP forthcoming on the mighty Rhythm Section. First track is out now Tropical Bleu. The music has a woozy downbeat feel, definitely something you’d expect from Rhythm Section. Pinty’s lyrics ride the beat effortlessly, bringing something a little different. Full EP City Limits will be released early next year. Worth checking out Pinty’s earlier self-released material from a few years back in the meantime. Links below!
