Young Camden native Kwesi Darko – aka Blue Daisy – has been teasing us over the last couple of years with scraps of intriguing and imaginative production, from the Flying Lotus jerk of Wolf to the floating Space Ex featuring LaNote, all hinting at what a full Blue Daisy album might sound like. Well now Blue Daisy, and the Black Acre label, have provided the answer with the recent release of his debut album The Sunday Gift.
The album is indeed a gift, though … [read more]
Russia and the UK collide here as friend of Jus Like Music, kidkanevil, remixes Pixelord‘s track Fish Touch. This heavy electronic beats banger has been exquisitely visualised by photographer Dan Medhurst, who has enlisted an array of be-crazed females to go a little ‘radio rental’ in front of the lens.
9th Wonder recently released his fourth solo LP, The Wonder Years, on his own imprint, It’s A Wonderful World Music Group.
Few hip-hop musicians command the loyalty and respect that 9th Wonder does and it may be this that colours some of the rhymes and skits on this album. Right from the off, there is a short intro discussing the idea of legacy and the lack of control that one has over such matters. But from there on follows a classic, sample-laden album … [read more]
This is a bit out there, but I’m genuinely quite excited about the group known as Metamono. As weird/dull/arrogant (delete as appropriate) as this sounds, it’s not too often I get sent stuff I’ve totally not heard of AND like it. I mean the whole package as well; I’ve never heard of Metamono before now, or their label Ho Hum Records.
Our friends over at Put Me On It have put us on to a fine remix of Portico Quartet‘s track, Clipper, by French producer extraordinaire YULT. You may remember YULT from the collaborative EP, The Animal Inside, which he released with Jus Like Music favourite Tanya Auclair a while back. Well, the good news is; you can download this new remix for FREE via this widget…
Keep your eyes peeled and your ears to the ground for fresh YULT movements in the … [read more]
The newest edition of The Jus Like Music Show on NTS is now available to download via our podcast feed and stream via our Mixcloud page. It was a bit lonely in the NTS studio this week as BUG was off sick and Trev The Intern was signed off with stress – so it was just Gav on his lonesome! But, that didn’t effect the high quality output, oh no!
We span two hours of the finest new music, with album features from Blue … [read more]

Check out this video for the new Nostalgia 77 single, Sleepwalker, featuring Josa Peit. The video is a sultry black and white affair, focussing mainly on talented Miss Josa Peit as she moves from the confines of a house to the streets.
Sleepwalker is the third single to be lifted from the upcoming new Nostalgia 77 album, The Sleepwalking Society, which drops via Tru Thoughts on 21 November. It’s a fine, moody contemporary jazz track, which once again goes to prove … [read more]
If you’re in London tomorrow night, Friday 21 October, you should get yourself down to the Jazz Cafe in Camden to see Lazy Habits live. Forging influences from jazz to hip-hop, but all in a uniquely British style, Lazy Habits seem to have come out of nowhere and are turning heads a plenty. With support from Baby Sol – who you should remember from our Untold Songs compilation earlier this year – plus support also from Mammoth Sound, it promises to be a … [read more]
