Check out this video and track from the one and only Miles Bonny. He’s taken a Kermit the Frog song called A Song From Kermit, recorded his own horns and percussion, and also his own rendition of the vocals, then added it to the video. However, the most incredible thing is not how leftfield such a project like this may seem, but actually just how fantastic it sounds!

Nick Woodmansey is a British drummer/percussionist and producer. Emanative is his space-jazz project, and Space is the debut LP that recently dropped on Futuristica Music. There needs to be a fuss made about Emanative and this LP, and I’m gonna tell you why.
There are a group of contemporary producers who are switching things on their head – whether it be a conscious thing or not, it’s happening, and I like it. I’m talking about modern sounds and techniques influencing old – so where … [read more]
This is the very polished looking new video for Sixteen by The Heavy. The track is lifted from the upcoming new album by The Heavy called The House That Dirt Built, which comes out via Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records on 21st September. Described as “voodoo soul” with a garage-band backbone, it’s a gritty track with raw instrumentation and an infectious swing to it.

For those not in the know, Darondo was a soul singer from way back who choose to keep his talent to being just a hobby – that was until a few years … [read more]
