Jon Kennedy – Ha!

Jon Kennedy returns with his seventh studio album, “Ha!”. Mixing up elements of broken beats, trip hop, jazz, hip hop and even drum and bass, Mr Kennedy has thrown everything in there and come up trumps.
The title track and lead single, “Ha!” is a low slung, funky head nodder that gets you grooving for sure. “Slave to TV” is more upbeat, with blasts of electro bass with a slightly harsher sound, but keeps things smooth with the jazzy percussion and vibes. All tracks on offer here create different moods and feels, creating an album that keeps your interest, gets you dancing and lets you chill out.
“Ha!” could have come out sounding dated however the album fits perfectly into today’s modern sound, whilst appealing to the older trip hop fans. Released on September 22nd, we urge you all to get a copy.

Funky DL – Incognito In Soho

Funky DL returns with a fully instrumental album, “Incognito In Soho”. Here the UK vet mixes up super nice, laid back jazzy vibes, with solid head nodding hip hop beats. This is instrumental hip hop for all those “real” boom bap fans out there.
With each track crafted as a fresh landscape for this project, this cohesive listening experience of 10 tracks in under 40 minutes showcases Funky DL’s unmatched ability to curate beats and samples through layering, comprehensive filtering and effortless whilst meticulous arrangement. Many beat-makers release beat-tapes compiling old and second-rate throw away music from their archives, but DL’s approach here is no different from when he is preparing to produce new music for his vocal work; only the best beats will do. This one of the fundamental reasons that Funky DL has been for so long considered a global treasure in Jazz and Hip-Hop production. ‘Incognito In Soho’ intends to take the listener through various emotive states from the lament of “The Glimmer of Nightfall”, to the excitement of “Gallery of Glass”, as well as the contrasts in “Turbulent Serenity”, each track allows the listener to lose themselves into the exploration of the night; as if they were ‘Incognito In Soho’.
Buy it now from Funky DL’s bandcamp page, and check out the video to “The Glimmer of Nightfall”.

Tobacco – Ripe & Majestic (Instrumental Rarities & Unreleased Beats)

Tobacco releases “Ripe & Majestic”, a new album of rare instrumentals and unreleased tracks recorded between 2007 and 2017.
These include instrumental versions of tracks by Beans, the instrumentals of remixes of people such as Sole, The Go Team, Dirty Ghosts and other unused beats and outtakes.
All the tracks on offer are unmistakably Tobacco, they have his signature sound, but all work perfectly as stand alone instrumental tracks. This is heavy, grinding, sometimes brutal electronic beat music, taking in influence from psychedlia, indie rock, hip hop and god knows what else, but it works and works well.
Out August 25th Red Cult Records.

Pete Sasqwax & Madslo – ADSR

Pete Sasqwax and Madslo have joined forces to create a new cassette release, “ADSR”.

In both cases, the joint tape is some of the producers best work to date. Truly eerie, atmospheric, head nodding and entertaining.
