So many good records have dropped what feels like overnight and I'm scrapping to make sure I've kept up with all the good ones to share! New K2 on Version Galore gave some serious flavor to an old rock tune that's usually loved for all the wrong reasons. Thatmanmonkz announced an EP forthcoming on Whiskey Disco which is gonna be without a doubt solid af. Obas Nenor is the lucky fourth feature in Masterworks Music's Master Series of 10" records which Closed Paradise & Silver Rider have both contributed to. The second release on Japanese label Eureka! which tore it up with Crackazat's 'Coffee Time' last year, is a nice one from Jamie 3:26 & Masalo with 'Red Light.' Heist has released their fourth remix service compilation they call 'The Roundup Part IV,' calling on producers from the year's past releases to remix one tune from each. Better Listen has dropped their ninth release from newcomer Joe Corti this week as well which was snatched up without hesitation to cure the questionable length of winter's stay. Sees y'all next week!
Some serious chord heavy deepness from Velours Records, this Weast record is loveliness from start to finish. Grab some similar stylized lo-fi vibes on Buddy Lambeck's Capeside House EP; anyone else ready for summer? Upping the clarity, but keeping the sunshine vibes, Whiskey Disco dropped their new one this week. Featuring the full squad of skipper Sleazy McQueen, and Ponchartrain the Disco Tropico EP is gonna get a ton of play. Finally, I happened upon these slices of Candian joy-cake this weekend. Check out Hudson Alexander's 'We're Gonna Have A Party', for the right amount of sweetness and grit.
We're gettin' deep this week y'all, starting off with a few reissues from Takecha, a Japanese producer who has been making house music since the early 90s. As is usually the case for electronic music producers from non western countries, the music didn't really make it's way outside of the country. Thanks to the internet though, we're able to get our hands and ears on the music without having to break the bank, so definitely check those out over here and here. Moreover, Frits Wentink is starting his year off with an EP for Wolf Music Recordings, and just premiered Theme 6 earlier this week, give it a spin over here for some very tranquil vibes. Goin' from deep to disco, the latest installment in the Black Bones series just got put up for pre-order today on PBVinyl, so expect some sample based afrofunk jammers. Grab the 12" over here if ya like, and more importantly, stay positive out there friendos.
