Hooo boy. Busy days.
It’s a common refrain among bloggers and now it’s my turn: it’s been quiet over here, with my time getting eaten up by day-to-day analog/IRL things, leaving little time to devote to this one-horse operation. Sporadic posts are better than no posts, I guess and thanks to some new tunes showing up, some more scribbling is on deck. People are nice enough to keep sending me quality stuff, and so I’ll keep on cobbling together the blah-blah.
In recent news, our pal Bob over at WNCL was kind enough to put this blog on Hypercolour’s promo list, meaning lots of new thumpy releases have been showing up in the inbox. Expect a four-to-the-floor/chunky slant for the next short while.
Being inundated with lots of new music can be a good thing, or often, a completely taxing pain in the butt. I’m thankful for the brevity of the 12” EP format, since for this picky music scribbler at least- the majority of promos in any genre largely run from ignorable to middling to “meh”.
Luckily, a few diamonds always stick out and here are three lo-fi funk releases from the Unknown to the Unknown / HotHaus axis that should be welcome additions to any long-time bedroom DJ’s arsenal for inclusion on Traktor mixes that will never see the light of day. Ahem.
Let’s get started.
