Searching through unsigned artists often throws up surprising results and one welcome surprise was that of young UK based producer, Moth Equals. With 10 years+ production under his belt he’s beginning to carve a sound for himself, evident on not one but two long players he’s made available for music fans. With a variety of stlyes on offer throughout these two albums, Moth Equals and his ‘ghost’ have taken influence from DJ Krush, Massive Attack and Thievery Corporation amongst others and used them to fuel the trip-hop melodies that carry you from start to finish on each LP. A very exciting producer and we’re eager to see him link up with a turntablist he keenly searches for future collaborations. Take in both ‘Dreamcoat’ and ‘The Fall And Rise’, they are a fantastic reflection of one mans creative output.
Both albums available on a name your price basis but do the right thing and bung this guy some ca$h 🙂
We’re lucky enough to get a heads up on forthcoming releases here at Robot Bodypop, probably because we’re badman selectors of awesome music. With a couple of exclusives this week you can check out when and where to pick them up, which is something you should do if you know whats good for you.
Diffrent Records comes with release 013 adding Jekyl with ‘Drainpipe’ and ‘Blabbermouth’ to the strong back catalogue. The latter features on this weeks show but both sides of this plate are heavy. Dark and moody D&B just how we like it with both tracks standing tall as a sidestep from the usual stuff being churned out. This gets a release on 7th May with both tracks there to preview. Get involved.
Big fans of Utopia Music at Robot Bodypop with plenty of releases featured in the last few months and Utopia Music 008, due out on the 7th May, sees Mikal return with ‘The Chant’ b2b with ‘Headbanger’. The A side featured this week shows why Mikals moves have caught the attention from fellow musicians Goldie and Break amongst others. Jungle vibes on both sides with a focus on slick drum patterns. A serious plate with no fillers . Going places this lad. No lie.
big up Example Media for the heads up. Serious roster going on over there:
