Five pristine liquid sparklers from the recently re-risen Sao Paulo label DNBB land just in time for the summer. Vibes range from the pacey flutters and far-away choral textures of Mystific's "Sorry" to the languid introspection and heart stopping vocal of Nostre & Alexvnder's "Tell Me" by way of Henry's Sakamoto-style pianos on "Looking Back". Pure bliss.
Representing Frankfurt, Soul Brother Twintone steps up to SDD with five touching compositions fine-tuned for late night roll-outs. "Riviera" and "Buzzkill" are hurricanes of soul blown from the iciest galaxy as breezy pads do the sci-fi thing with the perfect levels of emotion. "Dakota" is a unique funk exercise with some great late 90s feels to the double bass and all-round brushed drum jazz aesthetic while "Cave Paintings" maintains the jazz spirit but with more of a Latin feel to the groove and momentum. Finally "Ocean Drive" signs off with a rushed out vocal texture, humming subs and a subtle melody in the percussion. Tingles.
