UK innovators and Ninja Tune head honchos Coldcut are celebrating their 30th anniversary, coinciding with a live A/V international tour in 2018. Their new single "Samples From Heaven" via their revamped Ahead Of Our Time imprint shows exactly why they're still as relevant today as they were back in the '80s when they were making seminal hits like "Doctorin' the House" or "People Hold On". The lush and ethereal future beta rendition that is tcprox's remix is later balanced out by Satelle's jazzy ambient crossover.
Here we have a real treat for fans of British electronic dance pioneers, Matt Black and Jonathan More (Coldcut) teaming up with Adrian Sherwood (the On-U Sound label) for what they've describes as being 'an album of freshly-minted, electronic dub-pop'. There are sounds and flavours from all over the world fused in there too, with vocalists including Roots Manuva, Junior Reid, Lee 'Scratch' Perry appear over the course of these 16 (count 'em!) dreamy joints. A Quality release indeed.
