A Series of Oopsie Daisies - Christoph El Truento - Nutriot

There’s a real homespun kind of cutesiness present in the first release on Nutriot, that seeps through to the music from the cover art. Pitched as short sketches, mistakes and half-baked ideas, the full collection clocks in at 17 tracks long which actually isn’t as daunting as you’d expect. ‘We Fly With the Moon As Our Guide’ evokes Flying Lotus and elsewhere there are shades of Prefuse on ‘One Day Your Heroes Will Fall Over’.

'Rockstar' - GANTZ FEAT RIDER SHAFIQUE - Deep Medi

Stay Home - Submerse - Project Mooncircle

The thing I’ve found most amazing about Submerse’s music this week is that he manages to make his percussion sound cluttered even though there’s absolutely nothing to it. His new EP is remarkably lush, still emotionally fragile and very carefully programmed.

Wiggle EP - Jimmy Le Mac - Punks

Jimmy Le Mac ploughs a gorgeously doom-laden vibe that brings to mind recent releases from Bristol's Archive or New York's Doctor Jeep. My personal favourite on the four-tracker is 'Bungle', a furrow-browed percussive number featuring a wicked sample of Idris Elba's Stringer Bell from The Wire: "I'm just a Gangster I s'pose". The Melbourne-based producer backs it up with 'Wiggle', based round a hip-hop vocal refrain, doom-laden sub and meandering synthwork, an atmospheric rave-fuelled roller titled 'Played', and the slick dystopian sci-fi vibe of 'Bowers Rave'. Absolutely essential if you like your beats intense and claustrophobic.
