General up & at 'em goodness from this week's episode of MH!
As always we keep it with the old and new, and star vintage track this week would have to be Shuggie Otis' version of Strawberry Letter.....Shuggie of course a bona-fide under-listened to legend in the soul/early boogie scene, a definite predecessor to the likes of Prince. Any track from his album 'Inspiration Information' is always worth a revisit here on Subcity.
Keeping it slo-mo, Robert Vanderbilt, Chris Turner and THAT tune from Baths bringing soul with an electronic tinge...the way we like it! Talking electronic, SBTRKT's new EP is on constant loop in my house, last week it was 'Colonise', this week its his more pop-friendly but equally as good joint with Sampha; 'Look At Stars'. Also brand new group from Berlin on !K7 called Brandt Brauer Frick (great footage of them playing live Kraftwerk style here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OHFegchRTs), an excellent track from Portico Quartet side project Circle Traps, not to mention a crazy Deadboy remix of Scuba, from his new remix album of this year's explosive album 'Triangulation' (whole album is BIG!!).
If that's not enough, throw in some Darkstar, James Blake, Magnetic Man and watch out for an excellent new group from Vancouver called Brasstronauts.
Thats yer lot.....tune in and turn it up!23:00 - 00:00
