Jesse Futerman – Fuse The Witches

Though this blog sometimes seems to fixate upon the biggest and bounciest of Ghetto breaks and hip-hop, there is a softer, gentler, more cuddly side to your humble blogger, and the new Jesse Futerman EP is definitely appealing to it.

Fuse The Witches is a welcome return for a chap whose work I picked up on last year. His last EP, Super Basement was a slice of late night louchness – seriously, check the shuffling snares and smoky sax of out Driv’aman and tell me you can’t imagine sitting in a jazz hole in New Orleans sipping on bourbon, smoking absurdly skinny cirgarettes and discussing Proust – and his latests efforts are easily as good.

Stand out tracks for me are the melancholy refix of Billy Holidays epic paean against racism and slavery, Strange Fruit, the shuffling 40 Hats for 40 Cats, and the Lemon Jelly-esque Lonesome Lover (One for Jack).

Drops on the 4th June on Jus’ Like Music. You’ll be able to pick it up over on his bandcamp.

Whether it's early morning chilled wig outs, or eclectic party starting beat fests there's a reason they call him 'No Shit Sherlock' View all posts by djsherlockohms
