Riots in the Jungle – “Like LSD in the tropical jungle of the future.” – New SKIP&DIE video

Posted in News with tags , , , on November 5, 2012 by dk

SKIP&DIE have just released their brand new and surreal video ‘JUNGLE RIOT.’  

Mixing the look of a David Lynch home movie cut with documentary footage from South Africa, where the album was recorded, this unique and original video perfectly showcases the bands visual and sonic artistry.

In lead singer and director Cata Pirats’s words, the video is: Like LSD in the tropical jungle of the future.”


Their debut album of the same name was recorded while traveling around South Africa’s Soweto, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Guguletu, recording on the go meeting local musicians – setting up mics at the side of the road collecting sounds and ideas.  They then went to Holland to finish it off in their studio on the 10th floor of an abandoned office block overlooking central Amsterdam.

Jamie xx – Far Nearer /Beat For (STREAM)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2011 by dk

After months of anticipation, Jamie xx finally releases his first debut solo single on none other than Bleep’s Best Label of 2010 – Glasgow’s Numbers label. ‘Far Nearer’ is released on limited edition 12″. The hi-spec 12″ comes complete with heavyweight vinyl housed in a fluorescent inner and die cut outer sleeve and when purchased on Bleep comes with an instant MP3 download of the release delivered straight to your account.
The boy with the midas touch has worked with artists such as The xx, the late great Gil Scott-Heron, Florence and the Machine, Adele and is soon to be in the studio with rap superstar Drake. Forget the hype / commercial success though, Jamie xx is an incredible producer and seems appropriate to release on a label whose integrity cannot be questioned.

The lead track is an understated yet powerful production, its ecstatic, steel drum-driven rhythm merging beautifully with its pitch bent and re-interpreted vocal phrase “I Feel Better When I Have You Near Me”. Countering the sweetness of Far Nearer is B-side track ‘Beat For’, a dark and brooding beast blending half-remembered rave hooks with the same sense of rhythm and space that characterizes Jamie’s work with The xx.

Bowly -Bleeps / Idée D’un Tropique (Berkane Sol 12″ Vinyl-BRK015)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 7, 2010 by dk

After leaving behind the Somalian pirates, Geiom is cruising the sunny waters of the Indian Ocean when he picks up a distress signal on his scanner. He follows the signal until he locates a tiny remote island and a guy called Bowly, who said that he was on his way from France to the New World, but got totally lost. Judging by the age of the map he was using its easy to see how. Bowly spent his time on the island hanging out with the locals who amuse themselves by creating a unique style of music on some amazing handcrafted instruments. Geiom helps Bowly get on his way again, and leaves him with a more useful map. Some months later, Bowly beams over his music as a gift from his new found homeland in Canada – the tracks are like some strange mutation of those distant tropical players and the UK-based pirate radio transmissions that Bowly has been tuning into – Geiom loves the result and decides to send them straight over to Transition in London for mastering and release on Berkane Sol. This 12” has been getting played by selectors like – Subswara crew NYC (Soul Motive), Brackles (RinseFM), Grevious Angel (Soul Jazz), Martin Kemp (Blunted Robots), Cooly G (Hyperdub), Shortstuff (Ramp), Spamchop (Wigflex), Oneman (RInseFM)…

KidKut -ILove04 / Lilt (Apple Pips 12″ Vinyl -PIPS013) Preview

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2010 by dk

Adam Jackson AKA Kidkut has played a major part in Bristol’s music scene over recent years with his Immerse label releasing consistently outstanding music from the likes of Kontext, Benga, & Late to name but a few. Now Jackson is teaming up with leading imprint Apple Pips for the release of his own much awaited debut single. Apple Pips is the brainchild of Laurie Osborne AKA Appleblim who has made the label one of the most desirable dubstep/electronica imprints out there featuring music from Martyn, Ramadanman, Brackles, Instra:mental & more. Kidkut’s single kicks off with the pointedly titled ‘ILove04’, a percussive roller that combines elements of broken beat, UK Funky, & early dubstep, with snippets of garage vocals and intense twisted bass. The arrangement cuts and flows perfectly, chopping between rhythms and melodic parts with the breakdown giving a definite nod of the head to oldskool hardcore. The flipside sees Kidkut going totally tropical with the magnificent ‘Lilt’, a percussive workout built around intricate drums and rolling bass that underpin the euphoric summer inspired synth lines. Bringing to mind the stripped down work of Karizma, this is sure to go down well with the Funky heads, indeed Bok Bok is already supporting the tune.
Early radio and DJ support coming from Sinden (Kiss FM), Toddla T (Ninja Tune/Radio 1), Mary Anne Hobbs, (Radio 1), Bok-Bok (Night Slugs) & Jackmaster (Numbers)
