"Detroit Grand Pubahs have made the first disco acid! I mean, when you hear the acid line, you think Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder."
Having a B-side that is a reversed version of an album track is something The Stone Roses used to favour and Beady Eye recently followed suit with a backwards version of 'BE' album track 'Start Anew'. Tour DJ Arveene is most likely responsible for this new version, part of a longer set of remixes from the album '42:42', and the result sounds something like Andrew Weatherall overhauling 'Hallelujah' era Happy Mondays, which is a very good thing indeed.
Cardiff's Chesus is a man of many talents. When he's not doing hip-hop as half of The Darkhouse Family, he's turning out this sort of bumpy funk for Gerd's 4lux label. Solid, jazzy, ace.
TK's next album 'Gravitas' drops in early December and this is the first leak from it. 'The Wormhole' is produced by that man Oh No again and has some great elements (esp. the fuzzed up Coup-style guitar riffs) but somehow doesn't quite hang together in any way that's satisfying. I do like the way what starts as a rap about the illuminati ends up with a far clearer political purpose, speaking of which: a memo to ALL rappers — rapping about the Illuminati might endear you to 15-year-old 4chan-addicted assholes but anyone with two or more braincells to rub together will immediately file this alongside 9-11 'truth' and other assorted dipshittery. Half-witted. Half great.
