Deep down in the core of my emotional self that rarely anyone gets to see is a love for deep jazzy business to sway to and look out windows and such. Recently I came to be surprised to have slept on the Church LP by Nicholas titled Lonnie's Reprise, from earlier in January. A beautiful array of sounds sure to please the intellect and highly recommended for reflection or relaxation. Church has shown it's ability to carry this flavor well especially past releases from Laurence Guy, Folamour, Seb Wildblood, and Jesse Futerman. Peep the majority of Nicholas' release on Soundcloud.
On the flipside of things, been feeling the very Euro touch of the first round of edits from LA's Dino Soccio from label Pleasure of Love. It's spacey, it's glittery, it's party time, peep. One love y'all.
Let's start with an entire back-catalogue recommendation! There are some house producers and DJs that fit seamlessly in the canon, no matter their age or location. Like long lost family members returning home. Demuir is definitely a part of this family. Like a squirrel collecting nuts for the winter, I've been stocking up on jams for the summer (that are THE nuts). Get some of this tribal shimmying in your life from XOA & Contours on Banana Hill records. I also found a beautiful record from, professional social media complainer, Mike Simonetti and Elizabeth Wight, they bring us Pale Blue and their You Stopped Dying EP is essential. I'm a big Jimpster/Freerange fanboy, but the new Whitesquare; Traces To Nowhere defies even my lofty expectations, with it's deft layering of textures and emotion! Monologue records continue their agenda to provide some of the very best intelligent club music, this time coming from Kolja Gerstenberg who's East Shake EP is out now. That's all for me this week, keep the faith.
Y'all there is so much good ass music comin' out of Australia right now. I just recently came across Roza Terenzi's debut EP on Kalahari Oyster Cult, though it's not officially out till next month, each track offers a grey area combination of house, techno and electro, all beautifully crafted. Listen to those snippets here. Onto another wonderful release, Dego & The 2000Black Family's Find A Way EP recently got a little repress action, and thankfully put it on my radar. Expect three deep and soulful tracks crossing sonic paths with funk, disco and rnb. Pick it up or peep it here. I'll leave you all with a great picture set of a few NYC discotheques during the height of the disco craze. Big ups to Timeline and Getty Images for some of the best quality pictures I've seen from the time, really puts all this dance music stuff into perspective. I'll stop before I start getting too sentimental on everybody, check all of those out over here. Till next week friendos!
