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.

Schmoltz: Bah027

Belarussian producer Alik Khomiak aka Schmoltz makes a return on the mysterious skull-emblazoned Bahnsteig 23 with two addictive edits of Eastern discoid and onomatopoeic punk-funk.

Obas Nenor: My Way Home

It may be his first release with more than a single original track, but Nenor’s vital outing is a testament to both the producer’s confidence and Moodymann’s psychic skills as a curator. Two sides of straight fire, count this one as essential.

Project Pablo

Following the release of Project Pablo’s “I Want To Believe” cassette on 1080p, we caught up with the Montreal based producer to discuss his background and current situation in Canada. His mix is a warm blend of house, funk and soul.
