They come round quickly, these new release Fridays.
I’ve been waiting impatiently for these albums out today.
Tenderlonious - still flute
Incredible jazz flute mixed up with downtempo house. Love it.
Nightmares on Wax - Shout Out! To Freedom
Warp Records stalwart back with a ninth album of electronica mixed with jazz, hip-hop and soul. Guests on the record include Greentea Peng, Shabaka Hutchings, OSHUN and Haile Supreme.
Model Man - Model Man
This is broadly deep house territory, I reckon, though with elements of modern classical, garage and dubstep from what I’ve heard so far. The track Clarity was out last year and is exactly the sort of euphoric blissy house that I go for.
GCOM - E2-XO
Global Communication’s Tom Middleton becomes Galactic Communication with this new solo project of… ambient space techno? How would you describe it in your press release, Tom?
E2-XO is an audio movie, a space opera, a psychic investigation of the human mind in space. It is a fully immersive experience, with all the dynamics that such an imagination-stretching voyage implies. Listeners will hear echoes of Tom’s whole creative life; from his childhood absorbing Vangelis and Tomita, through the white heat of discovery alongside Richard D James, Matthew Herbert and friends, right through to his collaborations with technological innovators today and his current research into neuroscience and sound design. E2-XO acknowledges the past, but make no mistake whatsoever: This is the future…
So there you go.
What else have we got lined up this week?
