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 …

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”

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”
