I finally got my mitts around Leila’s album, Blood, Looms and Blooms. It’s all in there, such detail to sound, incredible. It’s like Autechre, DeBussy, Sarte.
Gilles Peterson is back with the next chapter in the Havana Cultura series – a compilation of remixes transporting original Cuban grooves on ‘Gilles Peterson presents Havana Cultura: New Cuba Sound’ to the club domain. Louie Vega, 4hero, MJ Cole, Philippe Cohen-Solal from Gotan Project, Rainer Trueby, Carl Cox, and homegrown Cuban producers Edgaro and Wichy de Vedado all contribute. There’s a lavish 12″ featuring reworks by Michel Cleis and Seiji. Did someone say Seiji?
Kevin (The Bug/’King Midas Sound) Martin hit me on the head with a new Black Chow track. Black Chow is K-Mart and Hitomi, two-thirds of King Midas. Black Chow’s Air will surface on Soul Jazz I believe somewhat soonish. Black Chow has found space to operate between the two aforementioned projects in a manner that goes down well in this neighbourhood.
Also on the ‘air’ tip is Dabrye, and man introduced to me via K-Mart. This time Dabrye gets Doom involved and this track is riding on a Madlib remix. How cool is that?
One other major thing this week, Jneiro Jarel, drops in from Viberia to lay on the Android Love Mayhem EP courtesy of his Label Who imprint.
Rub those mittens.
Ear Conditioning – Transmission 16 / Air Particles – broadcasted via Sunhole dot net tonight at 22h00.
