Memotone – Hands EP
I know I reviewed Memotone last time and probably mentioned this release was on its way. But it is such an outstanding release that I couldn’t not mention it! This outstanding multi-textured/multi-instrumental exploration is tied together by beautifully crafted beats with intricate rhythms as well as mesmerizing vocals that will leave you stunned and breathless. The hands EP gets it’s name from the hand crafted way in which it was created by Memotone playing & producing everything without the use of any samples. This is simply some of the best music I’ve heard in a long time!
Myown – Vesna
Here we have the fourth release from the splendid Left Blank Label who have been carving & crafting their own niche into the multi dimensional Bass Music scene since their arrival last year. This is a truly wonderful and fascinating release from the Russian producer ‘Myown’. His expertise in manipulating sounds, textures and beats into sensational tracks is second to none. The three track EP is available on beautiful 10” vinyl, I might have to go out and buy some decks to be able to hear this in all its glory!
Lost Twin – Birds
Well what can I say about this release from Lost Twin apart from it’s absolutely fantastic and it’s FREE!!! If you don’t know the Spanish/Brighton based producer Lost Twin from his previous releases now is definitely the time you should look into the extraordinary talents this young chap has to offer! ‘Birds’ is an exceptional exploration into the world of cutting edge instrumental Hip Hop that outshines the majority of producers in his game. There is no excuse not to download this album, I would personal pay good money for this eleven track masterpiece.
Chocky – Beating Around The Bush
BAfter Chocky’s debut release with the great Nottingham based label Disconnected Chocky has come back with another corker!
