New York City based Wonderwheel are excited to release the brand new Chinampa EP from El Buho, leading into his debut album in early November. UK born Robin Perkins is now based in Paris but spent the last two years living in Mexico City, working, playing and producing music. The EP is inspired by the urban sprawl of Buho's previous home and digs deeper to find the city's ties to water and it's present and past ways of living. "Salto de Agua" with its plinky plonky tones is drifting and ethereal experience. The subdued and slo-mo tribal groove of "Pasale" will put you into a right trance state, supported by some trippy synths and soothing melodic tones.
An Italian DJ at the very heart of the Sound Exhibitions roster, DJ Moy is a leading expert on all things funky. Here on his latest missive, Cosmic Funk, he presents two different sides of his production approach. The eponymous title track sees him venture out into the stratosphere and beyond with a curious take on space-age boogie, featuring furious Afrobeat percussion, delayed guitar stabs and a killer squelchy bassline. On the digital flip though, he turns in a quality slice of uber-90s jazzy hip-hop on "Mia", which is full of organic sounds - live drums, warm piano and soulful vocals.
