REBIRTH EP
12" Vinyl UK 17.09.18
following the late night swing of javonntte’s hm002, hardmatter uncovers another detroit talent for their third offering: malik alston. in his first vinyl release in several years, the rebirth ep explores a spiritual jazz soundscape with all of the verve of the city’s trusted sound. beside the soulful ballad of “love changes” featuring evan on guitar, the record’s lead song, “i am”, focuses on malik’s signature instrumentation and live improvisation. the track is a seven minute collaboration between craig huckaby, howard wazeerud-din ii and hardmatterís own zapata, who complement malik’s gospel-inspired vocals, the first time he has sung on a track in four years.

DREAM
12" Vinyl UK 05.05.17
jvxta steps up to the plate fresh from his outing with bokhari’s swamp tape series to open the record with dream, an atmospheric and jazzy number, utilising a soulful vocal to construct a cut that is suggestive of a modern day nu groove release. a2 takes it to lusher territory with lucia with swinging hats floating atop cascading rhodes and synth trills, while the flip side delivers a more ominous affair. dark chords ride along the classic, murky garage of midnight, finally leading to the driving drum workouts of zapata’s legitimate - perfect peaktime material.
