The Dewale brothers first proper studio album in 12 years, From Deewee has been one of the most anticipated and warmly welcomed albums of the year. Unless you've been asleep or on another planet since March you've probably already streamed or download it... But nothing beats the vinyl treatment as it brings the one-take, non-stop recorded session concept to life with weight and a rich sound their analogue machines were invented for. Featuring drums from both Sepultura's Igor Cavalera and Turbowolf's Blake Davies and some of their most timeless, hooky fusions, this is a remarkable return from one of electronic music's most influential acts.
Well, what can we say? Floating Points lands on the Juno HQ charts with something new and special, a step in a provocative new direction for the long-time house and nu-jazz icon. Deeply stirring and reflective, "Kelso Dunes" sees the London producer and DJ gravitate towards the more experimental side of the equation; while he's never strayed too far from the left of field, this particular tune is his most accomplished take on free jazz, and serves to finally showcase his skills at crafting the same sort of music as he plays out on turntables, week in and week out. With a cavernous edge to the atmospherics circling the instruments, Floating Points comes through with a special moment of magic - one that doesn't need a B-side to support it.
