Hellloooooo. Bit of a mix-up, hence the delay. Premiere is coming some time next week. Keep yer emojis peeled.
Emily Berregaard - Hallowed
A beautiful ~ambient~ release on Portland's enmossed, it's the artist's first 12". Lack and LXV feature on the third and fourth tracks, but I'm not sure if they're collabs or remixes or what's up. All proceeds go to Ann Arbor's SafeHouse Center, which provides safety, support, advocacy and resources for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
Tatham, Mensah, Lord & Ranks - Simmering & The Long Climb In The Sun
Beautiful house music with a real live feel. Gorgeous wonky bass and lazy piano chords.
Torus - Descend In Chains
Haven't heard from Dutch producer Torus in a while, and this new release is a welcome surprise. Misty non-club music, choral samples mixed with autotuned vocals, it's somewhere between Holly Herndon and Visible Cloaks remixed for dank floors.
Nu Era - Geometricks EP
I saw someone share this breathlessly and gave it a whirl, and it's magic, really gloriously sunny and bright breaksy house. Then I copped it was by Marc Mac of 4hero, so no shock there at its quality. It's got thick synth melodies, gloriously timeless chords, lilting arpeggios and so on. Essential summer music.
Hey Exit - Every Recording of Gymnopedie 1
This is my favourite thing this week. It's about 60 recordings of Satie's 'Gymnopédie I' layered on top of each other, time-stretched to the length of the longest recording. It's absolutely sumptuous, lushly, trippily beautiful.
COSMOSNITE - 071717
Fun mix here from New Jersey DJ Cosmosnite. It's a bunch of Miami Bass tracks and Miami remixes of r&b jams, and it's great.
Anz - Loa (CHOW001)
Manchester's Chow Down club crew are branching out into releasing music, kicking off with a super 12" from UK producer and Rinse regular Anz. This track is my favourite, with its stuttering percussion, massive bass lead and smattering of airhorns. Big!
Eric Cloutier - Live at Away : 07.08.2017
Couldn't care less that this is all vinyl, but hey. More interested in the "mostly house. :-P" part of the description. Cloutier is a great DJ and he shows it here across three hours, with a masterful selection of sunny grooves.
arc - monument
If you like long drones that shift slowly but surely along a single path with minuscule changes throughout, this piece is for you.
FOOZOOL guest mix Hong Kong Community Radio (Against Architecture 13)
This guest mix is a superb collision of pounding techno and pop culture from across the globe. The Spice Girls up against Omar Souleyman for one. All in a quick half-hour.
josephpanama - Aidan
Joe Panama said he'd make tracks for people the length of donations they made. This one's for me and it's lovely. Sink in and float away.
Radio Sunday night! Two hours of new stuff. Lock in here at 8pm GMT.
