Functions Of The Now VII: M.E.S.H.

Our seventh Functions of the Now mix comes from Berlin’s M.E.S.H. –  a thick and sludgy, irrepressibly restless collage of modern club sounds that beautifully represents Janus’ anarchic soundworld. Having released his first EP on Dyssembler, this month will see the release of “Scythians”, an incredibly diverse and lush sonic ecosystem released through Berlin staple […]

Recommended: Rules – Free

The D.C. producer sprang Rules up late in 2012 with a self-released, eponymously titled EP, attached with it the sort of experimental, alt-R&B pastiche that that particular year perhaps began to see too much of at the time of release.

Samuel‘s simple identity fits well with the rest of the no-frills label’s roster, this new release following the debut records by Shanti […]

Review: Mo Kolours – Mo Kolours LP

“Different feelings… this is doing one feeling, this is doing another feeling, or is this maybe doing a sad feeling, this may be doing, like a happy feeling!” So professes an excited voice at the beginning of the Black Is Beautiful-esque “Say Word”, summarising the potent duality of Mo Kolours’ self-titled debut. Even the artwork’s […]
