So like a rabbit out of a hat spring is finally jumping up before us and we have some mighty delicious tunes to accompany the light. If you want to ease yourself sweetly into spring then Chris Coco’s sound spiritual journey of discovery that is Return To Good Karma on Chris Coco Music will satisfy with its charming daydreams of Bali. As will the bliss beats of SCHiLLiNG’s Hella on Apparel Tronic. A magnificent mix of UK-rooted beats, Nu-Jazz, and jungle that will definitely impress you.
Other longplayers impressing us this month include the four-to-the-floor house and techno beauties of Octo Octo’s Where Are We Going? on Honey Soundsystem Records, the late night techno excellence of FABRICLIVE 91: Special Request, the welcome return of Jazzanova – The Remixes 2006-2016 on Sonar Kollektiv, the jubilant brilliance of Africa Gets Physical on, you guessed it, Get Physical and the all-killer-no-filler thriller that is Gradients on Astrophonica. A compilation to blow away the winter cobwebs.
As for our March wonders we’ll not be without? Be it the divine analogue ambience of Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society debut album on Six Degrees Records, the masterful back to the good stuff Big Love beauty that is Re-Loved By Seamus Haji – Volume 1, the dreamy ethereal techno and electronica that is Xinobi’s On The Quiet on Discotexas or the sensational Mr. YT and his Brand New Day on Apollo Recordings from Balearic downtime to bumped-up funk March delivers it all. And we are all the happier for it. Enjoy.
