Here are some recommandations of tracks that have been out for a while, but that are still worth to mention and to grab if not yet in the flightcase. They are really post-wobble / brostep stuff and goes in the direction of the UK-Funky. I won’t try to define that style as it is a non-sense but just want to let know what I think (IMHO) what’s finally good in this new musical soup made of a lot of different ingredients…
Breach – Fatherless
Objekt – The Goose That Got Away
A minimal technoïd track.
Addison Groove – Footcrab
New nickname of Headhunter with a fresh style. Somehow hard to have missed this one on Loefah’s label.
Girl Unit – IRL
Even harder to missed, one of the biggest track of last year, but it will still be played for a while.
Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie xx – NY Is Killing Me
The album is massive, but this track is the one with a huge fat groove.
Kahn – Like We Used To
More (Cosmin) TRG like, but with a nice chopped voice in it.
& more news.
The year started good with releases from many other artists : Vivek – Roots, Cyrus – Manhattan Blues, Jamie Woon – Blue Truth, Cosmin TRG, the massive trio made of Burial, Foutet & Tom Yorke, Burial solo works’ Street Halo, Floating Points material, Wedge stuff, the forthcoming album Black Sun by Kode9 & Spaceape… Too long to review all of them. 🙂
