Samurai Guru - Recalibrate (Alpha Pup)
There's been some great West coast beat releases recently & Samurai Guru's laid back, interstellar lounging, jazz iced, spaced out future hop excursion for Alpha Pup Records is the pick of the bunch for me.
Sampology, Megan Christensen & Sam Stosuur - Middle Name Dance Tracks Vol 1 (Middle Name)
Oooozing Brisbane's blue skies the new Sampology & crew EP is chock full of sunshine boogie, soul & jazz licks, loose live house vibes & perfect to launch into the weekend with.
Tommy Guerrero - Road To Knowhere (Too Good)
I'm really enjoying the new Tommy Guerrero album. Full of tropically funktified, Afro soul searching, jazz iced vibes and his trade marked simple but hypnotic grooves on Too Good Records.
Yoshinori Hayashi - Ambivalence (Smalltown Supersound)
Cheerfully ignoring structural norms Yoshinori Hayashi carves out his own genre defying, jazz checking, quirkily arranged, played, splayed, frayed, accessibly far out electronic experimentalism for Smalltown Supersound.
Takao - Stealth (Em Records)
Great new age of New Age vibes with attitude from Takou on EM Records Osaka Japan. Floating ethereal electronic fusion designed to connect with your auditory cortex rather than just wash over it harmlessly.
A lot of fine downtempo electronica rubs shoulders with classical piano and harp, tonal ambience, laid back soul and cosmic folk. Throw in the sounds of Morocco, deep laid back UK bassline house, Balearic broken beats and some cinematic psychedelic funk and it's another great slow music mix.
