1.

DJ Shadow

‘Nobody Speak’ (Feat. Run The Jewels)

DJ shadow_profile_color Derick Daily web

A collaboration that raises up Shadow back to where he belongs.

Last week, DJ Shadow returned with news of an new album The Mountain Will Fall prefaced with a title track that came across like serene trap music. That is to say, it doesn’t give much away for what is to come on the album.

Along with guests Nils Frahm, Matthew Halsall and old-school MC Ernie Fresh, it’s Run The Jewels which piqued the interest of many, myself included. RTJ can’t really do any wrong and their presence on ‘Nobody Speak’ adds some vitality and focus to Shadow’s still able and nimble production.

‘Nobody Speak’ is part of the Run The Jewels’ Record Store Day release out tomorrow. ‘VRTJ’ is a Virtual Reality cardboard viewer that comes with a download code for the collaborative track.


2.

Lone

‘Backtail Was Heavy’

12973251_1059926174046223_143360532162569739_oWonky electronic day-glo rave style

Most tracks that employ old-school rave breaks and samples feel like period pieces or homages. Matt Cutler aka Lone has a unique style of his own that he can bend into different existing shapes. For this once-off online release, his penchant for day-glow wavy synths are a great match for some old school rave-to-your-grave snatches and rhythm. The last minute of the track are the bones of the operation but it’s the suitable nod to the past that makes this a winner.

OK it’s been a few weeks due to me being away so there’s some songs that are a few weeks old in here.

Tracks of the Week playlist


1. Niia – ‘Simple Life’

‘Simple Life’, is as bare as they come, a piano-lead striking ballad with Niia’s jazz vocals yearning for something else as she “makes her lovers used the back door when they leave.” It’s an effective showcase of a new talent years in the making.


2. Todd Terje – ‘Oh Joy’

Probably the only banger we hadn’t heard from his debut and album of the week, It’s Album Time.


3. Tirzah – ‘No Romance’

Wobby electronic pop from a London singer produced by Micachu on the Greco-Roman label.


4. SBTRKT – ‘Gamelana’

The Transitions EP has been out a few weeks and this song first appeared in 2012 but this came on my headphones yesterday and took me by surprise.


5. Lone – ’2 Is 8′

Surprising hip-hop Bibio-style beats from the normally dance-oriented producer. From his new album for R&S, Reality Testing.


6. Sleaford Mods – ‘Tied Up in Nottz’

“It’s The Final Countdown by fucking Journey!” Nottingham Lo-fi English punk poetry.


7. Planet Parade – ‘Before & After’

Another quality free download track from the re-emerging Kildare duo.


8. SOAK – ‘The Mother We Share’ (Chvrches cover)

Just a lovely fresh take on the still ubiquitous track.


9.  Cornerboy Muzik – ‘Pull Up

Irish-rap beats from a Cork producer as used by Young Thug, Bun B and Fat Trel.


10. Halsey – ‘Ghost’

Speaking of the Glasgow band, this is some Chvrches’ style electro-pop from a New Jersey singer.

While his brilliant single last summer ‘Airglow Fires’ and previous albums displayed a more frantic electronic style, ‘2 Is 8’, our first taster from Lone’s new album Reality Testing out in June on R&S Records has more of a Bibio-style beat production feel and is distinctly happy (there are literally kids saying yeaah in unison). Definitely sounds like one for the summer playlist.

“I was listening to a lot of Detroit techno and old Chicago house that had the same grain and dirtiness to it as a lot of the hip hop I was listening to,” says Cutler of the genesis for Reality Testing. “That was the real spark – I wanted to make an album that had both hip hop and house beats, but that weren’t completely different from each other, that shared the same sort of vibe. I love the idea of two things sat side by side, but instead of it seeming like they’re complete opposites, [it’s more that] those two things could almost be the same thing.”

Lone

Lone rolls in the summer vibes here on new single ‘Airglow Fires’, a woogie-boogie track with an electronic centre and jazzy fringes. The whole combo is his first release since from Manchester producer Matt Cutler since his Galaxy Garden album. Love the “What?” sample. The track is out on July 14th on R&S Records backed with ‘Begin to Begin’.

Azealia Banks

The seal around Azealia Banks has been broken. There’s no going back to the underground space she occupied for 2011. Kanye’s already emailed her, she’s inevitably on the BBC Sound of 2012 poll and ‘212’ is being noticed by those beyond the blogs and Tumblrs.

The Harlem club rapper’s latest track uses Lone’s ‘Pineapple Crush’ as the backing track for some “liquorice bitch” shit.
