Ear Con55 – Ear Aid
Well it goes a little like this….
Starts heavy in an ethereal manner with Justin Broadrick’s latest incarnation, that being Pale Sketcher. We also have him taking on Teledudngosis as TechLevel2, should you last the full coarse.
London producer Mau’lin grafts Canadian vocalist Amenta in for a floater that reminds me of The Orb’s ‘Little Fluffy Clouds’. It could be the Canadian tilt on the vocals, well, Joni Mitchell being Canadian an’ all that, anyway, yeah, there is nothing wrong with having something ‘nice’ in your life every once in awhile yaknow! Abstract off-the-wall production from Mau’lin, this guy has potential in sacks. A three tracker with two more versions of ‘Deeper Than The Sun’ will be coming out via Ho Tep very very soon.
In preparing for this years Clandestino Festival we’ve been delving through nuff nuff music. Confirmed for edition nine, Susheela Raman, Khaira Arby, Mutamassik, Baloji, Onra, and also Hype Williams. Check out the Hype vids and tunes via our friends at King Midas Sound
Shit, there was a real good radio interview with Prince Paul that I came across a few days ago, and for the life of me i can’t find the link anymore, he had some insightful things to say about his time in the studio with DeLaSoul. Plus I’ve been bouncing around for a few weeks now with their album ‘Stakes Is High’ on repeat. So here’s some if ya missed it.
We jump to Nigeria courtesy of Honest Jons and their Lagos All Routes compilation. With a band name like Travellers Lodge Atomic 8, you know it has to be checked.
Bristol’s Rob Smith (a.k.a. R.S.D.) delivers a remix from Reggae Roast’s recently released Righteous EP). The London-based label has made a name for itself connecting the dots between traditional reggae music and the exploding styles of the UK bass scene, and this, its fifth release, is set to continue that reputation. The organ and horns of the original track (featuring the production of Evergreen, Landlord, and Ruckspin) are replaced with their dubbed-out counterparts, letting MC Danman’s uplifting lyrics take the lead when present.
There you have it.
