"Amazing way to integrate an orchestra. Controlled and beautiful."
Ben Watt reactivates his Buzzin' Fly label for a one-off release, a clutch of joyous mixes of 'Golden Ratio' and 'Nathaniel' from his album 'Hendra'. Charles Webster and Ewan Pearson do the honours.
I expect nothing less than wonder every time from Hip Nott, and this proves no exception to their high standards — beautifully nonchalant yet also uptight rhymes from VP and sublime limber funk from The Other Guys on the mix. Must hear the album 'To You' asap. Same goes for you.
High Focus go from strength-to-strength, here giving us a lipsmacking preview of JB's newest opus '... So We Ate Them Whole'. Great to hear that Chemo aka Telemachus has produced the entire album and 'Leash' features all the usual musical intrigue and suggestiveness you'd expect. Nice rubbery phat beat which pulls along a snaking tangle of tactile bubbling sound, theremin sighs and low-level unsettling static. The album also features Dirty Dike and is out in time for Xmas. You know what to do.
