Adult Swim are back with their annual summer singles series of original tracks from actually good artists and holy hell, they’ve only got Mr. Moroder, the originator of much of the electronic synth sound to offer up a new track. Free download next week.
We promise a podcast every month in 2013. It’s our new blog resolution. Here’s the first of the year and the forty-second Podcast in the series. Aoife Mc and I talk about, and play some of my favourite tunes of the last few months. Artwork inspired by Frank B’s ‘Chain Of Fools’ as heard on this episode.
The Insomniax debut EP The Love She Wants EP went under the radar the first time around I posted about them despite the high calibre of urban London sounds and Roses Gabor on guest vocals. For the current remix EP, Kai Gama and Dr Sydney Velvet drafted in the Rooty Toot Manuva for a special version of the EP standout ‘Friday Comes’. Hang around after in the playlist for Willows’ Bobby Evans and Swede:art remixes too.
But her voice is one that deserves its own place and ‘Stars’ her debut single produced by Redlight is a great first spotlight, a slice of live-wire club soul with twisted vocals with nods to dubstep rhythm. It’s released on Toddla T’s label, Girls Music and Ninja Tune.
A super-fun dancing kuduro tune from Portugal’s Buraka Som Sistema’s forthcoming album Komba (due October 28-30th depending on where you live). You’ll know Roses Gabor from her work with SBTRKT and Blaya’s own tunes can be found here. I have had a brief listen to Komba today – it’s proper party record.
