Review: Introducing some fresh, softly spoken and beat down sounds from new entity Kyyhky and the Made It To Friday label. Someone Will Love You Tonight sees a string of instrumental vignettes weaved together through a collage of summery, baerlic guitars and dusty MPC beats that pay homage to sweet, warm and melancholic hip hop blues. As if inspired by Flying Lotus' "Tea Leaf Dreaming", Someone Will Love You Tonight comes across the listener like a autumnal dream turned blue and blurry, with hazy highlights in the manga theme music of "80S Anime Gif", inspired piano melodies of "Final Quest" and the woozy waltz of "Nightwalking". Find more stringed and acoustic numbers in "Drawn In Snow", "Looking At The Night Sky Gives Me Hope" and "Sunset Type Beat". Kyyhky have arrived.
Review: Kissdafunk is one of the legendary house music nights born out of the North of the UK (formed by Glyn Tolley and DJ Rob Tissera), which over the years helped carve the scene and pave the way for an unprecedented amount of DJs and producers. It makes perfect sense then for them to start a compilation series reflecting the past whilst looking ahead to the future, and an exciting one it is too. Here we have just shy of 40 full length tracks, for a mere L8.99 and packed full of dance-floor dynamite, with; Will Gold, My Digital Enemy, Carl Cox, The Squatters, Paul Morrell, and Kryder being just a handful of the talent on offer... Get stuck right in!!
