Flume feat. Vince Staples, Kucka
Smoke & Retribution
Third track from the Aussie producer’s second LP
Just two weeks after introducing ‘Never Be Like You’, Flume teams up for a skittery beat banger featuring rising rapper Vince Staples, and Kucka, who undeniably sounds like Aluna Francis (AlunaGeorge’s new track incidentally sounds like Major Lazer). New album Skin comes out later this year.
How To Save A Life (Vector Energy)
Ethiopian inspired experimentalism.
Addis Ababa-based musician makes music clearly inspired by his country’s established music traditions but there’s a search for new forms too. The result is a “dream brew” of Jazz, Electronics and a new Ethiopian music slang.
