Jay Scarlett – Future Sounds For My Classic Generation

September 24, 2008

Whispered to a couple o’ my close heads yesterday that I was intending to unveil a midweek world exclusive today.

I kid not.

This is a fresh-off-the-stove melting pot (not single-track, individual mp3s) masterminded by tastemaker Jay Scarlett of the internationally renowned Beat Dimensions movement: champions of the bold, brazen, progressive and fearless future of music.

Those of you who copped Jay and Cinnaman’s Beat Dimensions Vol. 1 courtesy of us will know what to anticipate: a seamless selection of spacey, bugged out, glitched-up, forehead-knockin’, ultramodern Soul, Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Grime and other Electronic hybrids alongside classic, organic vibes. This man has his fingers on the pulse of these evolving genres (if one can even box them like that which I doubt). You may want to listen in, in dread of being left behind…

This compilation was recently completed in private conjunction with Reebok (and otherwise may not have seen the light of day) though I’m notified it’s getting pushed for a wider drop later this month. Disc jockeys, promoters, bloggites, audiophiles, forum dwellers, honour Your Mum: get this out there as far as possible, make the world pay attention to that next generation.

Props going out to my source for the fantastic voyage.

Various Assets – Not For Sale Vol. 4 (Red Bull Music Academy 2007 CD Snippets)

September 8, 2008

Couldn’t stay holdin’ onto these priceless numbers now could I? Such innovative, refreshing, avant-minded music is churned out annually at the Red Bull Music Academy; I really must Solid Snake stealth sneak up into that motherfucker one day, a few little taps on the Korgs and MPCs and I gaurantee you I’ll end up remixing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ into a talismanic, new-age, glitch-hop jingle.

The Jake One + Muhsinah collaboration here is outstanding; what an adorably eccentric creature she is, defiant of Rn’B songwriting banalities. Now if only I could get the whole damn CD (non-purchase exclusive industry shit they say), so take a-quarter-of-a-damn-disc and get you some wings (forgive this inevitable carbonated soft-drink punchline).

Props to Universoul for the goodies.

Janelle Monae – Metropolis: The Chase Suite [Special Edition]

August 13, 2008

Your Mum had this up a month ago via the blockbuster Future Sounds of Soul Music post so ‘fore you diagnose me a senile bugger, understand the EP was re-released in the States yesterday with 2 additional bonus cuts, hence a vital re-up.

I’ve been trying to tell people for months, and I’m back at it again- however due to the lethargic haziness of recent sleep deprivation one is currently at his least comprehensive, so, yeah…

Janelle Monae is the future of your goddamn world. A bold, brilliant, bonafide superstar creature. Recognise.

And I’m esoterically in love with her, with plans to pro-create. Hol’ tight forthcoming babymother.

Your Mum Loves Beat Tapes…

July 23, 2008

And she foams at the waist for that next level Hip-Hop shit too. Where snares crunch, spacial symphonies seperate cranium from collar, and there’s an anomalous glitch in the beat-matrix.

Observe a post-Sun-Ra, post-Dilla, post-Madlib, post-apocalyptic generation bursting through the seminal underground like babies with electronic umbilical chords…

Your Mum Says Listen to… Burial – Untrue

July 9, 2008

Name one album with which you can shuck-out (dance/gun-finger-wave) to, cry to, ride the back of the night bus to and sleep to…?

It’s ironic that in the record industry, for all it’s muscle and millions, one of the most mesmerizing and tour de force albums of 2007 came from an anonymous brere’ somewhere in South London. Question is, will those trendy bastards recognize this at the Mercury Music Prize this year?

To be quite honest, I’d never quite heard a 2 Step record quite ominously orchestral as Archangel which haunts like a dejected ghost stalking your local church rave. The more I’ve listened, the more I’m convinced the song is born out of an agonizing heartbreak the composer’s been subjected to; perversely pitch-bent lines as “couldn’t be alone…tell me how could you…but I trust(ed) you…” almost possess the listener forcing them to confront their own iniquity with the relentless repetition.

Untrue should (in a decade from now) be distinguished as that pivotal moment Dub-Step becomes a higher art form stabbing your soul with the handle of electronic-pulse paintbrushes and butchered vocal samples that bleed a cryptic narrative of disenchantment. The production over the 13 tracks is so densely tailored into a sonic whole (where alot of UK Grime/Dub-Step/Garage artists have failed to achieve when it comes to actually CRAFTING albums with an expert sense of control), the enigmatic Burial sets his artistry apart from anyone else in the field. There are layers, textures, anomalies and detail that will require attention far beyond your first listen.

It’s gloomy, unsettling, ethereal and above all else the sound of my city: London. I might even go to the lengths of saying this is the most beautiful dance-based long player I’ve ever heard. Don’t bloody sleep on it…sleep WITH it.
