The lovely future soul of Si Tew's 'Solhouette' starts this weeks musical ramble and it's a sweet little taster of the musical delights from his new album about to drop on R2 records. Jonwayne then swaggers into earshot with a cut from his new album from 'on the button' label Alpha Pup, what have they started putting in the water on the West coast?? I then finally dropped Mathew & Toby's 'Rocketnumbernine' on Kieran Hebdens label, something I've been meaning to do for ages, there's not many tracks that are 13 minutes long that I don't want to end. Burial disciple Aviance then dropped the tempo and upped the suspense with his 'Desolate' track from his great The Invisible Insurrection LP - deep and dark.
David Minor then beamed in a pleasing little leftfield transmission from the musical outer reaches via the Nonine control center before Channel In Channel Out's marriage of subtle glitches and pastoral vocals from his stylistically scizophrenic album due out very shortly on Karaoke Kalk. Grey Reverand then kept the vocal flavours flowing with some singer songwriter sweetness and a little taster of the delights to come from his forthcoming Motion Audio album. Matthew Halsall then displayed why he is one of the UK's most exciting jazz prospects and an old head on young shoulders with the most spiritual cut from his new album, On The Go, on his own Gondwana label.
Murcof then changed the vibes with his revision of the soundtrack for the Mexican film La Sangre Illuminada before new Ninja Tune signing Slugabed dropped some 'Nu Krak Swing' and T.R.A.C. followed up with some classic sounding hip hop courtesy of some super soulful Marc Mac produced beats. I then dropped a little reminder of how good Will.I.Am was before he went over to the cheesy pop dark side which led nicely into a super soulful slo-mo bassline beat workout from Shlohmo.
Mono/Poly then did more of the same before I dropped a little taster from the musical freshness meets man and machine sound of Boxcutter and his forthcoming album on Planet Mu. The new Wiley joint 'Numbers in Action' is gonna be all over everywhere this summer but personally I'm liking the great, simple but effective Sticky remix the mostest before IKE ended the show with some Detroit disco vibes..
