J Biscuits - Quests EP
I was recently passed a great 6 track instrumental hip hop release from local producer J Biscuits, across the release cleverly sourced samples and dusty beats combine to create a pleasantly relaxed listen. With a lean towards the use of organic instruments the EP conjures up a heavily visual vibe, short soundtracked glimpses into far off places. Personal favourites are ‘Travelling...

The Range - The Big Dip (Astro Nautico)
I have been slightly slacking on my blog contributions of late, letting the other team members take all the shine. This morning the latest free release from the excellent Astro Nautico label dropped into my inbox and I could hold myself back no longer…. Having been a fan of previous releases from Astro Nautico including the likes of Howse and Kuhn, I headed straight over to their bandcamp...

Forest Swords Reality TV Improvisations
These dreamy sketches of downtempo, doped out keyboard jams from Forest Swords are a great insight into an artist, and a reminder that lo fi improvisations while you’re watching the Kardashians can sound pretty damn good. Looking forward to releases later this year from a great band recently homed on the ‘No Pain in Pop’ label. ARE YOU SEEING HER by dyymondofdurham ...

young l - praktica
don’t let the cover put you off, this new mixtape by young l is the business. thumping bass, crispy-clean claps, computer game stabs; heat built especially for big sound systems. none a that 192 lil b stuff either, full 320kps quality. you have to hand your email address over to pink & dolphin to get the goods.
montgomery clunk - lack of snow
following that ace hearts tune a couple of weeks ago monte clunk follows in with this free ep, and his tunes just get better and better in my opinion. act fast as i’m guessing these are the same 100 download limit. so i’m told there’s a new ep set for release on error broadcast soon.
mono / poly - put ya hands where my eyes can see
i remember first hearing tracks like… … in 2009 and them blowing by mind. we tried to book him for donky pitch around that time and were close until we realised he was only coming for our show and we’d have to cover the whole flight costs from the states + a fee. oops. swiftly back up. now there’s a heap of average busta bootlegs around but this one (recently uploaded...
