James Blake – CMYK

What to say about this track? What is it? What genre? Who is James Blake? What’s that vocal sample? Where did he come from?

All the above comes down to one word…EPIC.

James Blake and this track is the sound of the future. R&B vocal stabs with dub steppy beats and a whole bunch of other stuff thrown in the mix. Maybe not for everyone at first but guaranteed to hit the spot after a few listens. Mark my words people this guy will be huge and he is one of the most forward thinking producers out there. Beautiful forward thinking SOUL music.

FCL – Let’s Go

Out on the We Play House label, the collaboration of FCL between label boss Red D and San Soda ‘Lets Go’ is a certified club killer. Deep house with a gospel tinged breakdown that sends chills down the spine. In context and played properly this track tears a heaving dancefloor to pieces. This can be found in many a discerning DJ’s bag and will feature in late night sets for a while to come.

Tornado Wallace – Paddlin

Hailing from Melbourne town Tornado Wallace aka Lewie Day is currently generating a lot of buzz with people in the know across the disco and house game. From DJ’s, Label Heads, and punters his productions of late are positioning him as of one the guys to watch closely as everything he is putting out is gold. Admittedly he isn’t breaking new ground with a sound that’s been around for years now but the old saying “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ is certainly applicable when it comes to his music, and trust me this is not a bad thing. ‘Paddlin’ released on Jimpster’s ‘Delusions of Grandeur’ imprint sees him work a slow burning house groove into deep soul territory with a level of restraint that only adds to the overall groove, locking you in and sweeping you away to a level of nostalgic bliss. I’m thoroughly enjoying this at the moment and those disco/house heads out there surely will too. Look it up.
