This week's Editors Pick, we turn to T-Scale, who is in charge of premiers. "I really hate myself for leaving out some other ones from this list but fuck it, I've had this dilemma before.. Here's 13 premieres I heart in no particular order:"
Antoine Bobicz - Escalateur dans la ciel (bau053) / Baumusik
Recently premiered, Escalateur dans la ciel (note the intentional -or not?- typo in "la ciel") by pilot and songwriter Antoine Bobicz is an assumed quirky pop song that reminds me a lot of 70s French comedy films and Wes Anderson movie soundtracks.
Cocktail Party Effect - Deerhorn (TECLP024) / Tectonic Recordings
Another recent one is this anti-4x4 banger from Cocktail Party Effect which i describe like so: "An energy bomb, exploding into aural clusters. Being hit in the face has rarely been so enjoyable!"
Tzusan - Cheap Thrills // Free Refills / SKOOP
SKOOP has been really prolific in the past few months. WIth Tzusan dropping his fantastic album BABAU along the way, i can just take my hat off to the crew!
Guildhall Military Orchestra - SHIVER / Slow Dance
Just next level shit. Nuf said. This is what Jazz will sound like in 20 years but
these young lads have done it in advance.
Church Andrews - 2.3 (Health011) / Health
Church Andrews' music reminds me in its simplexity of Mark Fell's work.
Straight to the essential, in focus.
Wesqk Coast - S.T.A.S.H. (OOH-011) / OOH-sounds
OOH-sounds is a label i'm really fond of. Ran by a lovely human and releasing forward-thinking
music. This track by Wesqk Coast is accompanied by a video that extends its message into symbols
of our times.
Young Girl - A Marshmallow Called Moon (TT002) / TruthTable
A Marshmallow Called Moon by Young Girl is one great example of the playful-sounding music
featuring on this album.
PANG - PANG PANG PANG / oqko
PANG! PANG PANG PANG! Pang? Pangpang, pangpang pang pangpang.. Pang, pangpangpang pangpang!
Wee DJs - TotalDisclosed (DM004) / Dionysian Mysteries
I've been a fan of Wee DJs output for quite a long time and was more than pleased to
premiere this crunchy dirty tune of his, from this excellent V/A courtesy of Dionysian Mysteries!
Mike Drones & Loëpa - Bad Habit (Daniel Ruane Remix) (DCRMX002) / Deep Cover
Released last year on Deep Cover, Daniel Ruane's remix of Mike Drones & Loëpa's Bad Habit is
a beast! Taking the original into a granulated, feedback heavy path that complements the
mangled vocals without losing its spirit.
LBF - Hypercharged (IE003) / Ideal Europa
"As if you were dropped inside the LHC as a quantum particle". Epic.
Ekhe - New Kicks ft. Elvin Brandhi / Spooky Shit
Out on Leeds-based label Spooky Shit.
I just can't get enough of this one! Naughty and catchy and a lil' bit crazy as well.
galen tipton - gummy (w/ seth graham) / Orange Milk
Orange Milk is a label i look forward to with each release. They've released this incredible album
by galen tipton last year; a light-hearted, playful trip in a strange augmented reality.
