Track one ‘Borne Upriver’ is a classy dubby chugger with slo-mo bass and sparkling guitars, which James Bright remixes with signature bubbling acid lines and swirling, delay filled synth atmospherics.
Track two is ‘Contento de Saber’ is a driving, uptempo psyche out with a classic electro feel, Jon Carpenter goes disco vibes. This in turn is remixed by Joe Morris into a classic old school houser, coming on like a lost Marshall Jefferson dub mix, complete with cowbells and loon bird samples. A really strong four tracker to add to your collection.
John Beltran is welcomed into the MotorCity Wine Recordings family with his sun-drenched and soulful debut entitled “Back To Bahia”. Titled after his MCW residency of the same name, the release combines Deep House, Jazz, Boogie, and, of course, música popular Brasileira flavors to welcome the sunshine into your life. All tracks on the EP are top quality, with my personal favourite being ‘Entardecer’ with it’s slo-mo latin guitar being a perfect Summer soundtrack. Available here in digital, or if you’re quick you can pick up a ltd 7″ single from Juno
The latest release from the collaboration between Chris Coco and Luca Averna, with the delicate, atmospheric guitar work of Micko Roache, it’s a timeless, shimmering slice of Balearic perfection. Surely destined to soundtrack sunsets all Summer long, an essential addition to your collection.
A playlist of music I’ve enjoyed listening to this month, some new, some new to me, some old favourites. Should be about right for the sunny Summer days here in the UK. Huge thanks to everyone who’s shared music, playlists, radio shows, mixtapes and good vibes this month x
Those lovely people from the Chill Out Tent are back with their next big streaming event on Saturday 20th June into Sunday 21st for the Summer Solstice. They’ve gone global this time, with a 24 hour international epic, starting at sundown in the UK and following the sun to the USA, Hawaii, Australia, Tokyo, Bali, Thailand then back to Europe for an Ibiza sunset and after party. They’ll be bringing chilled, eclectic vibes from from around the world together under one virtual Chill Out Tent.
Super nice of 1BTN radio to invite me to join them for a one hour mix, 10 till 11am Monday 1st June. An hour of super mellow, Balearic business with music from Chris Coco, Cantoma, James Bright and lots more. A great station for a great city, thanks to Chewy Beatwell for hooking things up.
