Angel Bat Dawid “The Oracle”

Incredibly special cassette/digital album from the Chicago-based “composer, clarinetist, singer & spiritual jazz soothsayer”. A project full of warmth, experimentation and emotion, recorded solo for the most part, at home in Chicago or impromptu on tour in London & Capetown, straight to cell phone.

Modified Man “Modifications: Set 3”

3rd in a series of 12s from this hardworking duo. Possibly their biggest cut so far, “Blame’s On You Bruv” features warm synths, punctuated by vocal samples, driven by a brukish 2-step rhythm. But there is still plenty more disco house, mutoid electro, jazz funk solos and arpeggios galore to …
