Review: A definitive musical group of the 2000s, Zero 7 plotted the decade with a cabbage patch's worth of albums, middled by their celebrated 2006 LP, The Garden. A staggering 16 years since that influential release New State reintroduces the sounds of Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker' project with a special edition that reintroduces Zero 7s electroacoustic jazz, trip hop, funk and classic downtempo sound. It reintroduces esteemed fellow collaborators Jose Gonzales and Sia, with highlights including Zero 7s "Seeing Things" and "My Place" with Gonzales' vocal touches adding a different kind of sublime to Sia's razzamatazz.
Review: New year new remixes of Paul Okenfold's all time classic "Southern Sun", this time from the UK's Matt Darey. In this take Darey delivers a 'Chill mix'' that sees the original's vocal given front position as deeper synths, slower drums, and spaced rhythms navigate their way through the shaded atmospheres of the truly nebulous bluster Darey has cut and shaped from this timeless classic. Euphoria from the depths.
