Last Moonlight - Kay Stone & Darkmoon - Breathe Music

Neither Kay Stone nor Darkmoon have moved on much stylistically in their time away. For fans of their measured melodica and never-too-overt/overeager uplifting sound, that should come as welcome enough news.

With All Your Eyes Look - Larry Gus - DFA

One of the stand-out cuts from his ‘Years Not Living’ LP, ‘With All Your Eyes Look’ is a mesmerising piece (much like the rest of the album) that draws from a smorgasbord of influences both past and present to create a rich tapestry of driven psychedelia. Fits rather nicely around the section containing Beck, Tortoise, Can, Caribou and Dan Deacon. There are rich pickings with some diverse mixes too.

Tremor (LNY TNZ Remix) - Dimitri Vegas & Martin Garrix & Like Mike - CDR

The LNY TNZ guys are on fire at the moment and this unofficial remix is another example why. Awesome trap-meets-hardstyle vibe!

Sum of its Parts - MarQ Spekt & Blockhead - HipNott Records

Enjoying the impoliteness of those new producers, obviously tutored in the ways of golden-age '90s hip-hop production but unable with the dazzling possibilities and lack of limitations inherent in modern recording technology to exactly replicate those sounds, ending up with something just as gritty and heavy but in a way more unmannered, more out of control. Blockhead opens up some wonderfully rusty taps on 'Sum of its Parts' and it suits MarQ's aggressive, slightly obnoxious rhyming a treat. The album 'JustPlayWitItt' is out now and is a great suite of focused rage, benefitting entirely from the one-producer mentality so many new reclaimers of rap seem to be revelling in. I dig it.
