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.
