This month the tunes are as joyful as the hopes only spring can bring, yes its time to get loved up and heartfelt. First up is the jazz-fuelled delight that is Songs For Knotty by Ishmael Ensemble on the tasty (sorry couldn’t help ourselves) Banoffee Pies label. One for the lovers. As are the minimal and ambient wonders of S.A.M.’s Dream State Of A Bellmaker on Delaphine and the Various Artists delivering the spacey sounds of Slow Porn presente Prise de Vue 1 on My Favorite Robot Records – although probably best not tell your mum.
Longplayers guaranteed to engage the body this month include Alessio Modrian’s addictive synths of Nuove Tracce (Di Vita Su Marte) on The Dub label, the misty early morning beats of Call Super fabric 92 on Fabric, the brilliant Masai Volume One on Oleeva Records and the thrilling house showcase that is Techfui Family’s Components on Techfui.
As for those making our hearts skip a beat? It has to be the divine sounds of Culoe De Song’s Watergate 21 mix, the must-dance acid house undertones of The Mekanism’s Breath on Play It Say It and the glorious grime of Letta’s Redemption on Coyote Records. A moving moment in electronic music that will stay with you long after spring has bloomed. Enjoy.
