Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 1, 2014 by J.D.

Future Disco presents Poolside Sounds Vol. 3Future Disco’s summer soundtrack is back for another fresh slice of sunshine sounds, hypnotic late night house stirred in with fresh daytime disco.
The third installment of Future Disco’s ‘Poolside Sounds’ picks up neatly where the last compilation left off, carefully balancing the emerging sounds of the underground with a wealth of Electronic music’s leading lights to craft another of the summers essential albums.
The mix itself submerges you in the deep-end with a journey of luscious, warm melodies, that then moves into a more driving house sound; perfectly fitting the title of a scorching soundtrack. The album features 18 tracks of the usual high quality mixes and edits of future stars and established acts including Basement Jaxx, Bonobo, Hot Since 82, Guy Gerber and Joe Goddard (of Hot Chipfame). We also welcome Kompakt’s Records’ Kölsch, newcomer Jad & The Lady Boy and Akra (the side project of Nick Woolfson from Mock & Toof), for their inaugural release, plus Future Disco series favourites Mario Basanov, Miguel Campbell and Maya Jane Coles who, as ever, masterfully capture the Poolside Sound.
Future Disco itself goes from strength to strength with a growing catalogue of popular albums and events worldwide including a string of dates in Ibiza and Croatia. Additionally a weekly radio show continues to grow an army of fans across the globe and showcase the Future Disco sound.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2014 by J.D.

Lazy Habits are releasing a new album of exclusive remixes, featuring the remixes from the likes of Benji Boko, The Correspondents and The Disablists.London hip-hop outfit Lazy Habits are releasing a new album of exclusive remixes, featuring the remixes from the likes of Benji Boko, The Correspondents and The Disablists via Run ‘N’ Jump Records this February.

The ‘Lazy Habits’ remix album works as an evolution of their debut (which was the perfect emulation of the band’s epic live credentials and their trademark big band and hip-hop sound). The new album sees a host of exciting remixing talents put their own spin on Lazy Habits’ original tracks, creating an album which sounds refreshingly unique, while maintaining the infectious spirit of the group’s first record.

The album contains remixes from renowned artists such as Fjokra, a multi – instrumentalist from Dublin, whose music drew the attention of Kaiser Chiefs, leading them to collaborate on an album called ‘Emerging Icons’ which was released via Unsigned Band Review. Also credited is popular artist Benny Aves who has received strong radio support from Annie Mac, B–Traits, Nick Grimshaw, Shadow Child and Caspa. Renowned UK outfit The Correspondents bring their individual electro-swing style to ‘Memory Banks’, building upon Lazy Habits’ original, infectious hip-hop rhythms.

Grey Reverend —Everlasting

Grey Reverend —everlasting

Grey Reverend —Everlasting


Released 29/07/2013

Grey Reverend, AKA Brooklyn’s LD Brown, is a modern day bluesman. That alone should make him notable, the music world being in danger of losing one of its greatest, most expressive genres to a lack of emerging talent. Grey Reverend is notable full stop however – his raw, simple, beautiful music is utterly, heartstoppingly arresting.

Everlasting is his first single since The Cinematic Orchestra’s Motion Audio imprint released his debut album in 2010, and comes fresh off the back of his vaunted collaboration with BonoboFirst Fires. This extended player, which features four new songs, announces his forthcoming sophomore album for Motion. LD produced the songs himself, playing percussive elements, keys and a homemade melotron as well as his signature rhythmic, raw guitar

The title song’s teasing, nostalgic melody winds through LD’s vocal observations and musings to startling effect. He immersed himself in experimental guitar luminaries from the Velvet Underground to Labi Siffre whilst writing and recording, and those influences emerge in the form of Grey Reverend‘s ability to hypnotise the ear.

Lazy Habits ‘Bulletin’ [Run ‘N’ Jump Records] – Released 19th November

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2012 by J.D.

DIGITAL 29th October
PHYSICAL 19th November

8 piece London Hip-Hop collective, Lazy Habits, release their first single ‘Bulletin’ out on Run ‘n’ Jump Records this November. This lead track is taken from their forthcoming eponymous album due out towards the beginning of December.

Like its name sake, ‘Bulletin’ grabs your attention from the start with frenetic brass and up-beat drums accompanying MC Lazy’s vocals taking centre stage. The song builds to panoramic proportions with cinematic strings working through the gaps lifting the live hip-hop beat. Rolling through, understated, beneath the boisterous exterior, an emotive Rhodes-Bass line loops through with its subtle stealth drawing you in deeper into the music.

Influenced by New Orleans jazz, soul and the Big Bands of the 50’s, Lazy Habits blast their sound into the 21st Century with hard hitting beats and slick lyrics about modern British culture and urban life. The band describes their sound as:

“Beats, Rhymes and Brass of the highest caliber.”

Formed in 2007 and originally the brainchild of one MC, the Hackney based outfit now stand as a full eight piece band whose onstage energy is a colossal live experience which has been sincerely replicated in their latest single.

Having notched up shows at legendary venues such as Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Roundhouse, KOKO; supporting the likes of Mos Def, Soulwax, The Specials, Bonobo, Chali 2Na (Jurrasic5) and Beardyman, Lazy Habits have proven their worth on stage. Alongside Lazy Habits’ memorable live performances at Glastonbury, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Electric Picnic the band are fast becoming a formidable and renowned international live act.

Lazy Habits’ debut, self-released EP ‘On the Wagon’ put the boys on taste-maker Huw Stephens’ radar, whilst also becoming respected within the underground scene, selling out on pre-orders alone. Their follow up single ‘Even Out’ introduced them to a wider audience, as it was used on commercially released cinema and TV productions both UK and Europe wide. It culminated in the band being invited onto BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Craig Charles’ BBC 6 Music show, Soccer AM and contribute to an unforgettable sold out Jazz Café performance.

This is a song which truly is the sum of its parts; that in isolation no one but Lazy Habits would imagine could work, but their creativity and craftsmanship has forged something beautiful, frantic and unique.

THE SUN: ‘’The best house party your parents never wanted you to have.’’

BBC: ‘’Lazy Habits prove they are anything but on stage”
