Each song features a guest vocalist collaborator, including The xx’s Romy Madley-Croft, Sia, Tricky and Andrew Wyatt(Miike Snow).
Aptly named album opener “Introduction” features haunting vocals from DFA’s Planningtorock, which blend effortlessly with ominous orchestration and brooding beats.

Basslaced presents DJ Marky All Night Long

Fresh from the release of the ‘Sounds Of The Innerground’ compilation this week, DJ Marky will be taking the reins during a special all night session for Basslaced at Fire, Vauxhall on Saturday.
Eschewing the rapid-fire DJ slots that are so commonplace in dance music, this is a chance to see one of the most revered DJs of recent times delve deep into his record bag and craft a unique sonic narrative over the course of the evening. Running right through until 6am Marky will have the chance to explore the full depths of his myriad musical influences and the crowd will be treated to a selection of fresh cuts, timeless classics and rare records from the vaults, spanning hip hop, house, drum & bass, jungle and more, all imbued with his trademark soul.
In a career that spans over two decades, DJ Marky has gone from an avid record collector and music enthusiast in his native Brazil to an internationally respected DJ, producer and label owner and his credentials are self-evident. From igniting dancefloors across the globe to releasing some of the most seminal drum and bass tracks ever to see wax, he continues to amass an unsurpassable list of achievements, all driven by his dedication, phenomenal technical skills and unique flair. Following the release of the new compilation on his Innerground Music imprint and with the recent announcement of the first Marky & Friends festival in Sao Paulo, Marky remains at the forefront of not just the drum and bass scene, but the music world at large.
The show will be hosted by lynchpin MCs SP:MC & Lowqui with DJ Take providing the support on the night.

Jesse Futerman – Exquisite Basement EP

Posted in News with tags , , , on April 30, 2013 by dk

Jesse Futerman - Exquisite Basement EPJus Like Music Records are delighted to present the third and final part of Jesse Futerman‘s free EP trilogy on the label in the form of; Exquisite Basement.
Following on from Super Basement and Fuse The Witches, the new EP, Exquisite Basement exudes a grown sound from Jesse Futerman. Commencing with the house-like ‘Trouble Man’ – a glimpse into his more uptempo material – the EP showcases that typical Futerman dusty, jazz breaks soulful sound, but with more body and soul than ever before.
In his own words; “Exquisite Basement marks the final chapter in my free EP trilogy on Jus Like Music Records. Everything you hear, with the exception of Jon Foster’s drums on the last song, is 100% samples – whether it be film, music or even some clips from old sci fi radio shows. Exquisite Basement marks not only the end of my free EPs, but also the end of my ‘100% downtempo’ output. Look out for ‘The Love I Lost’ EP on Jus Like Music Records late 2013 on vinyl as it will showcase my new more ‘uptempo’ productions, as well continuing a similar downtempo style which is present on this ep. I hope you enjoy it.”

International Jazz Day

Why International Jazz Day?

  • Jazz breaks down barriers and creates opportunities for mutual understanding and tolerance;
  • Jazz is a vector of freedom of expression;
  • Jazz is a symbol of unity and peace;
  • Jazz reduces tensions between individuals, groups, and communities;
  • Jazz fosters gender equality;
  • Jazz reinforces the role youth play for social change;
  • Jazz encourages artistic innovation, improvisation, new forms of expression, and inclusion of traditional music forms into new ones;
  • Jazz stimulates intercultural dialogue and empowers young people from marginalized societies

 

In November 2011, the UNESCO General Conference proclaimed 30 April as “International Jazz Day”. The Day is intended to raise awareness in the international community of the virtues of jazz as an educational tool, and a force for peace, unity, dialogue and enhanced cooperation among people. Many governments, civil society organizations, educational institutions, and private citizens currently engaged in the promotion of jazz music will embrace the opportunity to foster greater appreciation not only for the music but also for the contribution it can make to building more inclusive societies.

This year on International Jazz Day

Istanbul will be the official host city for 2013. Turkey has an age-old tradition of jazz. Munir Ertegun, Turkish Republic’s first ambassador to Washington in the 1930s, opened his embassy’s parlors to African American jazz musicians, who gathered there to play freely in a socio-historical context which was deeply divided by racial segregation at the time. Inspired by this legacy, the ambassador’s sons, Ahmet and Nesuhi, went on to establish the United States’ first jazz and gospel label in 1947 – Atlantic Records – which was seminal in spreading the beauty of jazz music around the world.

Spurred by the success of the first celebration, UNESCO, in partnership with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz (TMIJ) will be organizing the second International Jazz Day on April 30th, 2013. This day is destined to raise awareness in the international community regarding jazz’s virtues as an educational tool, as a vehicle for peace, unity, dialogue, and for enhanced cooperation between peoples.

The year 2013 marks the beginning of the International Decade for People of African Descent, consecrated to the theme, “Recognition, justice and development for people of African heritage.” This constitutes yet another highlight of the event that the United Nations will surely support. Africa, whence jazz draws its origins, will thus be doubly honoured this year.(via UN)
