Nothing like a tasteful techno and jazz fusion to change your outlook on music completely for the midweek wind up! The Rhythmist has blown my mind with the “The Agency” from almost a decade ago on P & D. It comes complete with remix service from Phil Weeks and Didier Allyne that focuses on more of a build for dance floor destruction purposes obviously. Happy to see another release out from Minor Notes Recordings as well out of Moscow. Baltimore Chop resurges the alligator vibes from the first release on the artwork tip and varied vibes to work with. “Moving” caught my attention attesting a deep, dark workout and wasting no time getting there once the vocal arrives. Nothing much left to say really so I guess I’ll leave you with a super classic from Lidell Townsell, “Nu Nu” for you you.
It’s only right to kick things off with an a·muse-bouche so that’s what we’ll do with OuiOui’s ‘Taystee’, which is suitably mouthwatering and gets us ready for a right stuffing! Praise be to weirdness, and all that serve it’s tenants, like Daniel Fassbender, for example who is traveling head on to put a little silly in that strut of yours, especially on ‘Ich bin begeistert’. Furthermore, if that gets you in the mood, then you should peep, the Robert Dietz, - Micro Dosen EP on Blank State, which hits hard on the wonk but also delivers on the melody too. I also just ordered the Orson Wells, Missin U EP, and while Red Planet probably isnt going to have people running on to the street in terror, its gonna have them swaying, and smirking (and that’s a fact). Ta Ra till next time. x
Startin' off with a new old UK techno jam from Automation, courtesy of The Healing Company This little gem is gettin a slight refresh, in two new remixes from Johannes Regnier and Adesse Versions, but for any fans of classic rave aesthetics, Comedown is for you and SlothBoogie's got the premiere. Loods crushed his Boiler Room debut, offering up a super sweet mix of house goodness, with the disco inspired tune, Watchin Out from Dirty Channels & Danny Russell being my personal favorite. Catch the whole stream here. If you're a fan of the funkier side of 80s soul, you've gotta check out this interview with Howard Johnson from They Might Be Taping / Take It Out On The Groove. There are just too many gems in this nearly two hour conversation to pick one, but their passion for the music and history makes for a very insightful discussion, check out the whole thing here. Till next week y'all!
