Flying solo once again with the new format it’s myself Killian selecting from a mixed bag this week. Deep vibes throughout and even taking a small HipHop excursion with Snakehips, Gummy Soul & Fresh as I’ve recently discovered Bandcamp is an absolute goldmine for concept albums from indie producers.
There some deep dub in there, most notably a free track from Djinn, thats a wicked remix of a Numan track so check for that. Some roots vibes in there too from Egoless and Matta checks in with a remix of French producers Niveau Zero & Tambour Battant. Dark and moody vibes from Kode 9 vs Badwai and to fend of the dark theres glorious tracks from our best kept secret, Londy as well as rising talen Es.Tereo. New D&B vibes from Breaks Symmetry label make this show as varied as it’s ever been. Get keen and listen in.

Bandcamp has fast become one of my favourite sources of both new and experimental music. The ‘Pragmatic Theory’ cut is one such download available right now on there. The vibe sees a collective of producers, samplers and beat maestros from around the world getting involvoled purely for the love of music. They take elements from Curtis Mayfield cuts and create whatever beats it inspires.
Its a 25 track release and all of them are available straight from the beatsmiths alike. They are bouncy, they push the stereo limit, they make you turn the bass down and right back up again,
Stream it, download it and listen in. Concept albums are rocking my world at the minute and what better way to get involved than this…..Its packed full of soul.
