Future Classic: NY*AK “New Ways EP”

Really strong 4 track EP by newcomer Andrew Scott aka NY*AK on the Fifty Fathoms Deep label, for fans of the moody slo-mo house vibe. It’s a vibe that although we do love every now and then, is a bit frustrating to follow as is it a bit difficult to …

Future Classic: Munro “BYOG/SIDWIR”

Very nice EP filled with summery vibes courtesy of young London-based producer Munro on the up and coming XVI Records out of Vancouver, Canada. Mid-tempo or Slow Deep House is a tricky thing. For me it’s sometimes very hard to differentiate the tracks that are 9’s and 10’s from the …

Future Classic: Le Loup “I Keep Secrets”

It has become very apparent to me that a lot of contemporary music I hear comes from somewhere else. Music is re-used, rep-appropriated, sampled, and tweaked and the result is something slightly different and new. Unless you care to know the source, or can recognize it, the music goes masked …

Future Classic: Shabazz Palaces “Lese Majesty”

I remember being absolutely blown away when I listened to “Black Up“, Shabazz Palaces‘ first record released back in 2011. Members Ishmael Butler (formerly Butterfly from the legendary Digable Planets) and Tendai Maraire are visionaries, at a time where we are in desperate need of them in the music landscape. …

Future Classic: The Hamptons “Excess EP”

What is the definition of a “grower” record? To me its music you appreciate right away but you truly start to “get” further down the line as you absorb it a little more. As opposed to a record you play a few songs on repeat but don’t play that often …
