I warn you now, I’ve spent the last few hours in the park, with a bottle of fizz, enjoying the weather. This may or may not have influenced my selection this evening.
Anyway – ONWARDS!
First up is a wonderful slice of summery soul (told you the afternoon in the park had had an effect …) Roxie Ray smashes a sultry soul vamp vocal over the top of Dojo Cuts latest, Easy To Come Home. Pick up your copy from here or from Record Kicks here
Next tune is from a chap who seems to be popping up all over the shop at the moment. I was first put onto Billa Qause by a mate who pointed me at I Walk Alone, and then he popped up on the rather corking I Know Who He Is EP with Hidden Riddim. Now he’s just dropped the My Mind Spray. Channelling the likes of Gramatik and RJD2, this track is a beat forward, sliced soul sampling belter. I’m fairly certain The Charmels is in there, though it might be going backwards … whatever. it’s epic stuff.
Last up this week is another weather influenced track from The Resonators. Surrender is a a summer-in-a-can soulful little dub number, and is guaranteed to light up your afternoon. Seriously, I defy to you to be stressed after listening to this, it’s BBQ-tacular.
