Sentiments

Lyon based DJ and label owner Sentiments steps up to grace our mix series this week with an hour-long mix of funky flavours, pumping electronics and straight out dusty Chicagoan groovers, weaved together by his impeccable sense for liaison and melodic patchworking.

Field Records mix by ESHU

New year, new purpose and we resume our archive mix series with Field Recordings on Mixcloud. This week sees shadowy Dutch collective ESHU at the reigns – their mix heads straight down into trip-hop, laid back hip-hop grooves, classic dub, soul and funk. Everything you could want to ease you in after sessions of excess over the past few weeks.

Kito Jempere: BAH029

Kito Jempere’s new slab for Bahnsteig 23 – the edit-focused imprint helmed by sphinx-like character Ziggy Sternenstaub, follows the steps of eastern European funk-punk and disco through four astutely re-arranged tracks aimed to enhance the original mixes’ bounce. Premiere the EP’s highlight ‘Melnaa’ within.

Premiere: Javi Redondo – Narcotic Luv

Back on Jennifer Cardini’s label with ‘Hammocks Go West’, a three-track cosmic epic giving full vent to an infectious solution of quirky disco grooves, raucous technoid modulations and straight up funky staccato riffs, Redondo demonstrates the extent of his production skills with an ever-bold take on club functionality. Stream the italo-inflected ‘Narcotic Luv’ within.

Premiere: Pellegrino – In Deriva

Combining a sixth sense for oddball jazz inflections a la Sun Ra and electrifying boogie in Chick Corea’s Elektric Band style, we’re glad to present ‘In Deriva’ – a spirited cut pulsating to tantalising Rhodes throbs and afrobeat-friendly congas.
