Mr Scruff vs Kirsty Almeida – Pickled Spider (Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , on May 5, 2010 by dk

According to Mr Scruff here’s how it came about : “Mr. Scruff and Kirsty Almeida were in a recording studio. It was very dusty and covered in cobwebs. As they tidied up, a small spider appeared. It ran up and down the keyboard, trying to escape. Mr. Scruff pressed the record button and Kirsty began to sing. A big spider appeared and played the bassline. When the tune was finished, Mr. Scruff and Kirsty put the spiders in a pickle jar and in honour of their studio guest, called the tune ‘Pickled Spider’.”

Diesler – Tie Breakers

Diesler – Tie Breakers
(CD/Digital) Social Beats/Unique, 2010-06-04

Tracklisting :
01. Samba Magic (feat. Laura Vane)
02. Panther Sneer (feat. Double Yellow)
03. Deepest Cuba
04. South Side Morning (feat. Stee Downes)
05. Zebra Boogie (feat. Linda Bloemhard)
06. Pick Pocket (feat. Laura Vane)
07. Buzzin
08. Back to My Old Tricks (feat. Linda Bloemhard)
09. Chillin’ (feat. Caroline Ekström)
10. Change/Trust (feat. Stee Downes)

Diesler’s first release was Cotton Wool, part of Tru Thoughts Shapes One compilation: despite being written when he was only 20, the song still found its way onto Radio 1, a massive achievement for a debut track. This success was followed with the Ladies and Gentlemen Get Your Engines Ready EP in June 2004; a mixture of smooth, laid-back vibes and up tempo beats, from jazz and funk to latin rhythms, it showcased Dieslers globe-trotting sound, and magpie-like ear for the best samples, to devastating effect.

He followed that up with his debut album & double vinyl EP releases Diggin It Something Rotten in April 2005 and a calendar year later with Keepie Uppies, both of which are on the Tru Thoughts label. His 3rd album, The Rhythm Station, was released in October 2007 on Freestyle Records and a remixes compilation, ‘Tracks On The Rocks’ in 2009. He has just completed work on the next Diesler LP, Tie Breakers, which is due out on Unique / Socialbeats just about now in spring / summer 2010.

In addition to all his original work Diesler produced 2 songs for Tru Thoughts vocalist Kinny on her ‘Idle Forest Of Chit Chat’ LP and has worked on the soul project ‘Laura Vane & The Vipertones’ whose debut LP came out in August 2009 gaining support from Jonathan Ross, Mark Lemarr & Craig Charles (BBC Radio, UK).

With his 4th album Mr. Diesler, a truly unique musician and individual, has knocked out yet another killer LP that provides a 360 degree genre agenda – an overview of the 2010 nu-jazz scene encompassing hip-hop, funk, soul, house, broken beat, afro beat and electronica – The In Sound From Way Out! Don’t miss his regular show on that goes by the same name folks!

As a first proper 7inch single Unique will release ‘Reggae Magic’ – a stunning roots-reggae vocal version and DUB on the flipside derived from the original album track entitled ‘Samba Magic’ that was reworked and produced by french reggae aces Grant Phabao. Reggae Magic’s also featuring the wonderful vocals of singer Laura Vane with whom Diesler performs regularly as dj / soundsystem, completed numerous own productions & remixes and most recently co-wrote the successful album of Laura Vane & The Vipertones.

Soon to come is another 2nd single out on 12inch and cd with remixes of UK’s currently buzzin’ Warrior One outfit that takes ‘Samba Magic’ to a garage and somewhat dubstep grounds.

Kush Arora – ‘Voodoo Sessions’ EP
Release date: May 18th 2010
Label: Kush Arora Productions
Cat Number: KAP006

1. Humidifier
2. Empty Alleys
3. Maga Bo featuring K-Libre – Nakhil (Kush Arora and Bakir Remix)
4. Humidifier (Club Edit)

Kush Arora presents ‘Voodoo Sessions’, a journey that continues the legacy of his bass driven Indo-Caribbean catalog. This time a tribal approach of funky, double time dubstep and African grime is the order of the day as Kush explores new territories for the first release of this year. Kush Arora has been sculpting sound in San Francisco and beyond for the past decade, branding his own signature imprint on dancehall, dread bass, dubstep, and Indian music.

The title track “Humidifier” skirts around the house tempo tropical sound, fueled with angular drum and effects edits. It contributes Indian remix theme elements into a completely new territory for the funky sound and touches upon edges of dub.

“Empty Alleys” continues on the sample heavy theme with a 138 BPM soca-step banger fit for any dubstep or electro DJ, reminiscing on a New York sound drenched in Indian aesthetics.

The release also features a remix of “Nakhil” by Maga Bo, previously released on Dutty Artz featuring K-Libre from Tunisia, with Bay Area afro beat dub master Bakir adding his hands to the remix. A grime and meditational approach is taken to the vocal, contributing sped up African instrumentation with industrial darkness.

Kush Arora has also recently recorded a studio mix jam-packed with original material and funky bashment.
