Yesterday, Lamin of the Dutty Artz crew informed me that he’s got his latest mix “a series of emotions” within a thirty minute plus capsule, posted up on the DA site. Subsequently we exchanged a few emails about the tracklist and more. We have a shared liking of Shlohmo, a lanky nineteen year-old producer from out Cali way. His’ Tomato Squeeze’ comes in after the ten minute contribution from the second volume of Manouâat Amazighia, which I picked up in Agadir last July during the Timitar Festival.
Leading up to the release of their Hegioland album, Massive Attack come with another remix from an album track, this time She is Danger tackle ‘Girl I’m in Love’ featuring Horace Andy. I’m finding this remix a bit more to my liking than the previous one’s associated with this album. Looking forward to the Flying Lotus and Burial ones that are due.
Continuing on the beat tip, we’ve got Onra, Ras G, Busy, Paul White, J. Dilla, Mustang, and Dorian Concept. Mustang is one of the aliases of Alex Attias, who I believe has moved back to his native Switzerland after years in London. Part of the ‘broken beat’ scene with New Sector Movements, 4Hero/2000 Black, Domu, Bugz in the Attic, which in turn were all centered around the record distributor, (the name of which I can’t remember). I heard his Purple Moon track on the Coldcut/Solid Steel show that used to run on London’s BBC station. The next day or so, I went around to the distributor, which was around the corner from the Virgin office where I worked, Alex was there, and he gave me his last remaining white label. Top geezer!
Mutamassik, returns with another cut from last year’s Commo EP. That and Dr. No’s Ethiopium have been on heavy heavy rotation here this week.
Delve into the links, and enjoy the beats.
