introducing the debut 12” by miami duo sons of immigrants. for their first release on amam, the un_mute residents deliver a fresh melange between acid jazz, minimal and house. combining old school analog hip hop beats and samples with trippy vocals, raw percussions, deep chords and jazzy basslines, makes the trademark sound of soi.
befog takes con into a deeper underwater dimension with an outstanding remix.
spoon’s first minimal aesthetic two tracker with different moods. only vinyl.
“kindness” (a-side) takes you directly to an afrobeat-trip of 9 minutes driven by some interesting drums, definitely a peak time track that will deliver the afro-american vibe into the crowd. “looo” (b-side) is the early morning tune / stripped-back track with a pitched voice and rising production.
junes kicks off a new imprint, dote, with a full-length exploration of the direct yet dreamlike sound he s made his own. with his usual flair for crisp grooves and ghostly palettes, a view reveals a broader range of nuanced vibes. second wind and stop, elate show a playful buoyancy, and a sense of discovery in tracks like balancing act and two-sided embrace add a narrative pace to the collection. there s time for some of the creeping, spaced out atmospheres that hallmark some of junes previous best, but with tracks like packaging, the realisation of this sound is richer than ever. there s a restless feel throughout the work, too – especially evident in the closer spooked – and a feeling that we ve been on a trip that doesn t end here.
