BB #757 | Kowton | Glock & Roll | White Label
Joy Orbison premiered this one in his recent Radio 1 Essential Mix and, for us at least, it stood out like a shiny gold penny amongst a handful of dirty (but equally valuable) change. Kowton, one of the Bristol scene’s current poster boys, is marking some serious territory here.
BB #756 | Steaward | Track 1 | Rutilance Recordings
The sixth release on DJ Steaw's on Rutilance imprint, and another to slot in at the top of your ‘need’ list. This one got the BB nod, but the rest of the EP is not to be sniffed at - another bomb from Steaw, plus a guest showing from Ortella.
BB #755 | Drumtalk | Super Vega | GETME!
Back on a BB tip, at last. Let’s see if we can build up a fresh likkle streak, shall we? For starters, there’s this one, forthcoming on London’s GETME! It sees Drumtalk living up to his moniker like a boss - drums all over the shop, talking your feet into a frenzy.
BB #754 | Soichi Terada & Nami Shimada | Sunshower | Crème Organization
Reaching back to 1987, Crème Organization have made an executive decision to reissue this Tokyo House classic - a plate that’s been out of print for almost a decade. Sounds as large today as ever. Get your trigger fingers at the ready.
BB #753 | Wbeeza | I Like It | PFly Music
Wil Maddams brings to an end yet another enforced absence on our part (sorry) with the latest output from Bermondsey boy Warren Brown, aka Wbeeza. This one arrives complete with choppy vocals to die for and a lovely likkle stop-start breakdown. Large release, all round.
BB #752 | De Sluwe Vos | O.G. Anthem | Albion Records
A mere five months after Soundcloud snippets emerged, Albion Records' 002 release hits the shelves on Monday. Dutchman De Sluwe Vos arrives from nowhere to absolutely annihilate the A1, here. Needs some health warnings attached.
BB #751 | Truncate | Message | Truncate 8
If you haven’t copped a listen of Jimmy’s 'S' EP on Hypercolour yet, now’s the time. Meanwhile, our ‘resident Mallorcan’ Selector adds another notch to his tipping tally. His BB back catalogue is now extensive - view all of his diverse recommendations here » clicky.
BB #750 | Randomer | Bring | Hemlock Recordings
Randomer's taken the essence of a french accordian classic and turned it into a vigilante techno work-out. Rohan Walder's unique brand of menace has him stood apart from a large portion of the scene, in our opinion. Chilly vibes.
BB #749 | Kez YM | Late Night Remedy | City Fly Records
"Dope Japanese producer Kez YM has always delivered interesting grooves. The production is tight and playable and, on top of all, it has layers. There’s some moody disco in there and an awesome remix from Andres on the flip, too.”
BB #748 | Jay Daniel | Bubble Cougar | Sound Signature
An astonishingly accomplished debut by Detroit newbie, Jay Daniel. A release on Theo Parrish's Sound Signature is prestige personified, let alone your very first. Guaranteed to prompt you losing your marbles all over the dancefloor. Stunner.
BB #747 | Alexander Robotnick | Undicidisco (Justin Van Der Volgen Edit) | Hell Yeah
Some more jolly fare from Park Ranger - Trouble Vision resident and agent extraordinaire. This time he’s reaching for an Italian-American collab - a ripe old dust-up between Florence’s Alexander Robotnick and Brooklyn’s Justin Van Der Volgen.
