Hey Mami - Sylvan Esso - Partisan Records

With support slots for the likes of tUnE-yArDs and Wye Oak and a cheeky appearance on the Jimmy Fallon show (which included a certain ?uestlove on drums), things seem to be going from good to better for Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn’s latest musical project. Rightfully so, they seem to have struck some form of musical gold in Sylvan Esso. This latest single is sure to do them no harm either.  Beautiful, understated electronic soul with a twist in its tail.

 

Sum of its Parts - MarQ Spekt & Blockhead - HipNott Records

Enjoying the impoliteness of those new producers, obviously tutored in the ways of golden-age '90s hip-hop production but unable with the dazzling possibilities and lack of limitations inherent in modern recording technology to exactly replicate those sounds, ending up with something just as gritty and heavy but in a way more unmannered, more out of control. Blockhead opens up some wonderfully rusty taps on 'Sum of its Parts' and it suits MarQ's aggressive, slightly obnoxious rhyming a treat. The album 'JustPlayWitItt' is out now and is a great suite of focused rage, benefitting entirely from the one-producer mentality so many new reclaimers of rap seem to be revelling in. I dig it.

Origins - Pryda - Pryda Recordings

After a solid run of vocal hits with borderline radio appeal, Eric Prydz returns to his pure dancefloor persona here, with an EP of four tracks packing that familiar Pryda punch. What else needs to be said? The brooding, sinister ‘Origins’ is the best of the lot, its looped vocal used to particularly hypnotic effect. There’s no concessions made, and it’s all the more exciting for it.
