BONOBO - JETS [THE NORTH BORDERS ALBUM]


Latest Bonobo album just dropped and its fackin’ beautiful. A couple tracks were flung into the internet over the last couple months, namely ‘Cirrus’ and ‘Heaven for the Sinner’ featuring the eternally afro-spiritual Erykah Badu. The word ‘chilled’ is an understatement for the album, so just roll your spliffs and check for yourself.

SIMPLE - BARELY TOGETHER EP
"Making his debut on Apollo Detroit native Simple (or Konstantin Papatheodoropoulos as he’s known to his friends) steps up with six of the warmest, soulful tracks we’ve heard in some time. 
Weaving a patchwork quilt of found sounds, pops, clicks and tape hiss and marrying these with the warm textures of distorted rhodes, pitched down vocals, resonant drones and bumpy percussion, Simple arrives at a sound based on what he himself calls ‘happy accidents’ - with a heavy emphasis on improvisation.” - Apollo Rec.

FOUR TET - FOR THESE TIMES

Continuously intriguing compositions coming from the production don Four Tet. Sultry, groovy and tantalising loop placed on a soldier-like build up of snares. I’m stomping my feet but swaying my shoulders.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - SUIT & TIE (FOUR TET REMIX)

I didn’t have much hope for a worthy remix of JT’s new track, especially after Julio (Wholio?) Bashmore’s god awful and lazy attempt. One of two Four Tet uploads changed that, and totally made it on their style. 

Also, don’t hate on JT’s comeback like you didn’t cry him a river. That is, if you’re a hater.

CASHIUS GREEN FEAT. VINCE STAPLES - I AIN’T HAPPY

FLATBUSH ZOMBIES - MRAZ (PROD. ERICK ARC ELLIOTT)

Hands down my favourite shit I’ve heard from Flatbush Zombies.

This is what acid does to hip-hop.
