God damn, never heard about B-Ju before. Apparently another unknown German producer that is killing it with music. His latest EP called “Cheap Shots” released on ERROR BROADCAST just blew me away. Fresh and lush summer electronic sounds. Just love the way how he uses vocal samples mixed with driven percussions and synths. Just get the EP for free HERE!

Track “Coffe Break With Two Cops” has looped my office more or less the whole day. So good!

Phour Trakk

When the god of small things and the Indian goddess of music get together, then Phour Trakk might be the cause. After his previous side trip to the roaring maze of western metropolises, he packs his bags again in order to leave eastbound while in his mind he has already arrived there. And it goes without saying that he has remembered to slip into clothes both typical for the country and comfortable.

Consequently, his fourth EP on iD.EOLOGY comes along in a guise just as colourful, elegant and rich in texture as a dhoti by Manish Malhotra. Hilarious Bollywood-style vocals meet earthy downbeats, eastern harmonies contrast smoky blue-notes and breezy tabla-rhythms blend with deep fretless basses heavy as lead. While the memories of the skyscrapers’ silhouettes slowly fade, all these details, all these small things coalesce to generate a wistful anticipation of a far-away culture.

Before fascination and rapture now make you light a candle and start making oblations to the gods, you might as well slip into something more comfortable and give this e.p. another thorough listen or two. After all, Phour Trakk has hidden quite a few more niceties for the attentive listener. Or was this, too, the god of small things in the end?

alif-tree

This French music alchemist is a self-pronounced DJ and cook, who sings, writes, plays guitars, pianos, percs and scratch samples, then records, mixes, remixes again and again and often speaks to himself as a fervent defender of acoustic sounds, from philharmonic music to pop via smoky nu-jazz, blues, melancholy emotions, that combine simple acoustic jazz elements with spacious, multi-dimensional, synthesized ambience and very mellow beats to world music. 

Alif Tree has navigated through the universe or recording-studios, sound-stages and television, as much as record-labels, for the past fifteen years. Sailing the seven seas of space in zero gravity, between trip-hop under classical influence, instrumental hip-hop and jazzy electronica.

Alif is today signed to the Munich based record label Compost, established by Michael Reinboth in 1994. In the words of the inimitable Gilles Peterson Compost is “the most consistent and forward thinking record label of continental Europe.

Someone once described Kate Bush the most stoned woman in Britain; Brightblack Morning Light might earn the sobriquet of most stoned band in New Mexico.  They are just about rooted in their once native Alabama and early 70s blues-loving rock but their sound is actually over-stoned; so thick and immersive you could almost rock-crit to the max and announce “heroin folk”. 

Naybob Shineywater Pens mystic lyrics about rainbows, hologram buffaloes and living in a little tent down by the river — and he’s got the hippie bona fides to back it up. With his partner, Rachael Hughes, Shineywater lives in a solar-powered home in New Mexico, where the pair typically craft psych-rock blues albums under the name Brightblack Morning Light.
