Sigmafly (Σ-Fly) is Manchester based Tom Holmes. Fresh from his incredible free EP on Essay's Warminal label he's put together a blinder EP for those quality purveyors of fine muzik CUT. Taking the musical aesthetics from the likes of Boards Of Canada, Lapalux, Burial and some of the previous Cut producers like Great Skies or Essay, Tom envelops all the great parts and ultimately produces his own emotive, melodic and beautifully deep take on the style.With carefully considered layers of intricate sound, chimes, piano, vocal snippets and echoing percussion these truly crafted pieces of outstanding audio make for great individual pieces, but combined, as an EP you can really appreciate the value of his aesthetic.

Something that dropped into my inbox last week outta Edinburgh Bass label, Abaga.
From Leicester (UK) based producer ODEA "The Circuit EP" borders on the darker side of the dubstep genre, without the clichés, just all-out bass and beats.The track "Chatty" that pricked up our ears on first listen and continues not to disappoint. The relentless sub keeps you in tha groove coupled with Odea's idiosyncratic percussion and you have a brutal yet infectious sonic barrage with dubby overtones. Deep!

Really looking forward to catch this amazing new documentary THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish filmmakers, after languishing in a basement of a TV station for 30 years, into an irresistible mosaic of images, music, and narration chronicling the evolution one of America's most indelible turning points, the Black Power movement. Featuring candid interviews with the movement's most explosive revolutionary minds, including Angela Davis, Bobby Seale, Stokely Carmichael, and Kathleen Cleaver, the film explores the community, people and radical ideas of the movement.
Music by Questlove and Om'Mas Keith, and commentary from and modern voices including Erykah Badu, Harry Belafonte, Talib Kweli, and Melvin Van Peebles give the historical footage a fresh sound and make THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE an exhilarating, unprecedented account of an American revolution.

Personal favorite being the track 'Dry'. Free download or just drop a little bit of coinage for the EP. Recommended.

Some more freeness from the quality CUT netlabel, now on release number 04 is the "Feel For Bumps EP" by Bristolian producer Bryn Thomas who brings us something a little more beats orientated. A simple mix of up-front soulful hip hop beats, borderline wonky, catchy synths and a sprinkle of downtempo vibes....always xcelent output from the stable and one that surely needs supporting in these difficult times...Drop some coinage for the EP on the bandcamp page.

Just caught the sundance screener of the new docu-film directed by Michael Rapaport Beats Rhymes and Life: The Travels Of a Tribe Called Quest, charting the band's triumphant and turbulent 20-year career. ATCQ has been one of the most commercially successful and artistically significant musical groups in recent history, and regarded as iconic pioneers of hip hop. A must see travel around the groups up & downs.
I can still remember the buzz around the basement of the newly opened Black Market records in SoHo, London when their "Description of a Fool" promo dropped in the UK..
From July 8th around the US and soon the world!!

Doing the rounds on the underground last year and finally getting a release in March on the brand new Lightworks label outta LDN..An anthem to fill any dancefloors. Ossie drops live sounding african rhythmic percussion with such beautifully spacey synths to die for, from a young and very up and coming UK producer, lots more to come from this guy....So Lush!!.
He`s got a brand new "Set The Tone EP" out on Hyperdub and definitely go check out his FACT MIX.

An Afro classic coming outta West Africa in the late 70's early 8o's. William Onyeabor a contemporary of the mighty Fela and indulging also in the social-political woes of his country and the world, but instead of following the raw Afro-beat of Fela's grooves, WO goes for an altogether more smoother funky/disco style. Lifted from Booniay!! A Compilation of West African Funk, pure afrofunk pleasure!!...Njoy.
