Something I’ve been hearing on Marc Riley’s Radio Six programme on the way home from work

Have you tried Sampha? Similar vibe but perhaps more emo

One of the advantages of the lockdown is the time to explore the outer reaches of the musical world

Now we're talking! I heart GGP and they're on regular Spotify rotation.

In the same vibe get yourself some BadBadNotGood, Snarky Puppy, Moses Boyd, Oscar Jerome, Joe Armon-Jones, Quantic, Yussef Dayes, Caribou, Elder Island, Lemon Jelly, Maribou State, Romare, Portico Quartet, Kamasi Washington, Hiatus Kaiyote, Kokoroko, Jordan Rakei and Tom Misch. Nice collaboration here from the last two.

Instant Brown Paper Bag for me. Good.

More Brown Paper Bags vibes with this.

Yussef Dayes is insane on the drums.

Idris Ackamoor has a new album out,

Could be the breakout tune of the summer, now all those EDM discos are temporarily closed.

I want to like it but there is something about the Nigerian drum/rhythm sound that I can't stand. I can't be racist as I have all of Roachford's albums.

Anyway this is a new solo project. A little bit a Balearic Daft Punk

This came on rotation again and it's still ace.

This is a mix which just works so well IMO that even though there is no YT link, I'll post the external link here https://www.stampthewax.com/2020/06/08/monday-morning-mixtape-304/

The opening G.M. Hopkins – The Leaden Echo & The Golden Echo (read by Richard Burton) mixed into Gigi Masin – The Word Love. Also a fairly trite observation but RBurton had some voice on him.

This just came on a spotify playlist and I went to grab the YT link to share here and was astonished to find the "synths" were actually played on guitar. 'Mazed

Proper oldskool 1970s guitar synths at that.

I like that, will listen to more - sort of reminds me of a cross between Steely Dan and Lack of Afro.

As hinted in another thread I've been spending some time during lockdown making music. I can't play a note and don't own any instruments or hardware so I'm thankful for the huge variety of apps and programs out there, many of them free. Dis and I haven't managed to actually collab as yet but I'm grateful for his tips and advice.

Over the weekend I also made some videos to go with the first few songs. I used a simple video editing program and put some royalty free clips together. I'm very excited to share them with you.

First up is Fonque, some French synth-pop nudisco to get your groove on.

Next is Dust. Channelled my inner late-90's Bristol for a trip-hop smoker's head nodder.

I don't mind admitting I punched the air when I got the jet to hit the note at 1:30

Last one for now is another French inspired summer banger. This one was 100% free using samples on the Garageband app.

My daughter named it Sun On A Monday Morning which scans well with the notes in the chorus and one day it may even have vocals (not mine). Dis' contribution, much like Sean Parker in The Social Network, was to add brackets to the title to make it authentically 80's.

Love it - I listened before I read it was yours and Bristol scene and instantly thought it was from that time and area - top work!
