Review: Mad Decent's unpredictable Jeffrees off-shoot is a one-stop-shop for all things electric - a matter of days ago they gave away a psychedelic folk EP from Jahan Lennon and now there's this outrageously eclectic dancefloor attack. The sixth volume in the series, you should know the score by now; from the juicy sub-satisfaction and trap-door riddim of Sibot's "Magnetic Gem" to the sexy leftside R&B of Liz's "Underdogs" via the more peaktime squeaks and tribal pounding of Lady Bee's "Sweet Like Chocolate", Jeffree's currency is the complete unknown. And long may they prosper!
Review: Brainfeeder as a project have been known to bring together the weird and wonderful, more often than not supplying the world with stunning original music. This latest compilation from them celebrates 10 years of the label, putting Flying Lotus's visions into reality. We explore previously undiscovered realms of futuristic hip hop production, with immediate stand outs being the the unpredictable neurotic drum crunches of 'Delusions' from Little Snake, along with the pulsating drum work and 4x4 flavours of 'Squaz' courtesy of Ross From Friends. Another shout out has to go to FlyLo himself as he teams up with Busdriver for a super skat heavy run out on 'Ain't No Coming Back'. This one is a fantastic listen from start to finish.
