Ocio de Hoy – Canebrake

Cracking new package from Eclectics, with two original tracks from Canbrake (aka Mallorquin) with James Bright and Joe Morris on remix duties. All available via Bandcamp and there’s a vinyl option via Qrates.

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.

Back To Bahia – John Beltran

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 Tripping Forecast – Longwave

Discovered this gem on Soundcloud, it’s a work of gentle genius.

They say ‘It’s 1989 and you’ve taken a pill in a club; it gets too much & you wander into the chill out room & the DJ is playing a super mellow set of Radio 4 classics.

Longwave is mostly Rob Manuel. With thanks to David Ault & Chris Barker.’

Rob has been working on some, check notes ‘blinding visuals’ to pair with the mix, here’s a taster. Can’t wait to see the full length edition…

And here it is…
