onra - change of heart

it seems like aaaaages since onra’s album dropped on all city last year, so i welcome this new cut with open arms. lifted from a two track japanese 7 ‘change of heart’ isn’t a far departure from the future funk fueled tones of long distance, and a good thing too.

stream both tracks below. or click the artwork to dl a 128 of ‘change of heart’ from xlr8r.

samoyed - spit ep

i fell in love with this ep from the very first time i heard it; lo-fi crackles, guitar loops, lushed-out vocals and grainy electronics make me very happy.

it’s out in a week or so on rekordah’s astro:dynamics label, but if you head over to xlr8r or dummy mag you can cop a dope lukid remix or malamute respectively.

Ambassadeurs - Duke Red

It’s moments like this that make my heart melt.  Without getting too personal and mushy, I used to work at the college where Mark (Ambassadeurs) was studying a year or so ago, and thinking about him making music like this in the studios I used to care for, just makes me feel all warm inside.  

Here Ambassadeurs has managed to make something bigger than the sum of all it’s parts.  For all the ‘heads’ out there, it’s brimming with influences from all corners of the global beat scene, without a hint of thievery, just glorious references abound. The arrangement is impecable, teasing with jukey triplets, skipping hats and awash with a glow that’s becoming familiar to those already accustomed to his work.

If this is anything to go by, it’s gonna be a very good year for Ambassadeurs. And it’s a FREE DOWLOAD for god’s sake!
