Flying Lotus gives Gilles the world exclusive first play of his new single ‘Moment of Hesitation’, featuring Herbie Hancock.
Starting the day with this dope mix from Prosumer ahead of L'AMERICA this Sunday 24th August at Clwb Ifor Bach with my Cardiff crew!
I’m overjoyed to announce the release of this mix, a compilation of some of my favourite tunes played on the terrace at La Escollera Ibiza over the last few years.
Since I got home at the weekend my feet have hardly touched the ground. I played at the 3B Records in-store party with Karizma on Saturday afternoon and then at The Magnet for the Hustle afterparty and official Camelot warm up till 7am. Almost every conversation has been SuncéBeat related as the word continues to spread about this sparkling gem in Croatia’s festival scene.
This year’s event was my favourite so far, with so many new faces from all over Europe visiting for the first time and being blown away by the incredible vibes at this soulful retreat. As Nick Blow so timely commented: ‘We need more of these love vibrations in the world right now!’
Rock Konducta is the latest in Madlib’s instrumental “Beat Konducta” series, the producer’s raw hip-hop beat tapes brought to life. Previous titles include Movie Scenes and Beat Konducta in India, imaginary film soundtracks; the self-descriptive A Tribute to J Dilla; and Beat Konducta in Africa inspired by the Zambian “Zamrock” music scene of the ’70s.
The latest album finds its inspiration in various worldwide underground rock scenes from the 1960s through the 80s: American psychedelia, Germany’s Krautrock, acid-soaked Spanish prog-rock and synthy, early-80s oddities.
Sharing a lovingly extended edit of Dee Dee Bridgewater’s ‘Night Moves’, from the ‘Just Family’ LP released in 1978 and produced by Stanley Clarke.
Recorded to tape in 2002 on three Technics 1210s with a track list lost to the mists of time. Beautiful selection!
