New Year. New you. Yes let the traditional month of promises to never again, vague attempts at detoxing and half-hearted dieting begin. But then if you stick this lot in a sound system this January we reckon those must-do activities will bounce along just right.
Be it the tight soulful grooves of Brian Power Presents Soulhouse Vol.1 on Soulhouse Music with its lesson in four-to-the-fabulous-floor, the emotional house and electronica of Larry Cadge’s sublime Me, Myself and Larry on Smiley Fingers, the winter thrills of Pal Vol. 1 on Pear with artists including Sage, Plush Throw and Chmmr, the playful antics of dubstep party king Skream’s FABRICLIVE96 on fabric records or the utter genius of Austen/Scott’s debut longplayer Hypnagogia on Danse Club, we have the feeling your body and mind will love these tasty treats.
As for January’s must-buy wonders we can’t do without PBR Streetgang’s Late Night Party Line on Skint / BMG, an album so fine it’s had us calling them up over and over for more of its addictive bass lines and cheeky Man Power moments. And as for the compilation In The Heat of The Night: Vol. 1 on local wonder label Nightshift Records? Nothing has us more excited for the year to come. Thanks Ms Kubu. You and yours have us juiced up and ready for 2018. Just how it should be. Enjoy.
