So here comes Autumn. Another season, another sensational selection of tunes and the perfect excuse to get woolied-up! (Oh how we love those mitten days). We digress. Back to the tunes of the month. First up is Balance 026 Mixed by Hernan Cattaneon on Balance Music, a double delight fuelled with low-slung grooves and euphoric depths that will keep you content till Christmas. As will the charming sounds of Give a Soul to Your Groove Volume 1 on So Sound Recordings with it’s deep chunky jackin’ vibe courtesy of artists including Inland Knights and Jazzy Eyewear. And if you like your beats beautifully bleepingly intense then it has to be the energy drink of an compilation that is Saytek Live On Cubism Vol.3 on Cubism. A real wakey wakey house and techno blinder.
As for this month’s gawd blimey missus wonders? First is the frankly sublime Blurred by Huxley on Aus Music / !K7. His promise has finally come to fruition with a debut longplayer that will enchant, delight and insist on the dig. It really is a stunner and one that will have you Callin’ his name far and wide. Grab it and then him (live later this month at Concorde2 for Treatment) and make your October spectacular.
And finally we have The 2 Bears. Their second album The Night Is Young has had us both smitten from first play, be it with the achingly honest bravery of Not This Time (a certain contender for video of the year?), the delicious pop tones of Angel (Touch Me) or the dirty groove of My Queen. It’s the kind of album you feel you’ve known forever after just one listen and yet it just keeps giving. The Night Is Young. In your soundsystem or live at The Haunt later this month, they are bound to become your favs. Just how we like our bears. Enjoy.
