‘black lotus’ follows walton’s inclusion on tectonic’s landmark 100th release – riko dan’s ‘hard food’ ep. plus the ‘praying mantis’/ ‘koto riddim’ 12” (also on tectonic) and the ‘taiko’ ep on kaizen – the latter two of which hinted at the album’s sound. but didn’t fully prepare us for the brilliance to come. abstract electronics. grime. dubstep and new styles that don’t even have a name yet coalesce perfectly on this classic in the making. it finds walton at peak power. reaching just as far (if not more so) than anything on the pan. different circles. boxed or tectonic catalogues for pure futurism and new-terrain-traversing brilliance.

time flies. doesn’t it? it sure does when you suddenly wake up to celebrate your 10th vinyl release as a small label. which is the case with us. but as we’re all about quality over quantity. our latest 12” offering comes with a superb collage of fresh music by the one and only radicall. having made his mark as one of the most consistent producers. known for his trademark combination of strong. dynamic drum programming and soft and booming basslines. radicall keeps on delivering top-quality music with each next release. and this 12” single is no exception to the said rule. the playful. happy-go-lucky “touch” is a bit of a nod to the old-school/rave/early jungle/footwork/you-name-it style given its complex drum pattern and an array of acid-style synthetic samples and tinges of vocal here and there. but sticking to modern-day standards nonetheless. the flipside comes with “build me up” remixed by bungle. who surely knows how to make good things just as good as they are. but yet a bit different. and here we have the brazilian powerhouse reshaping radicall’s work to make it a bit lighter and upbeat. but still retaining some elements of rawness mixed perfectly with traces of nostalgia. an excellent job. breathing a new life into the original piece - a darker-shaded straight-to-the-point roller. which you can get as a digital bonus added to the release. so here it is - the tenth vinyl item in our catalogue. featuring names you simply can’t go wrong with. what better way to celebrate the occasion?
word of advice to funk lovers. there is not a minute to lose. get on board of the big hustle’s spaceship. before we take off. let s do a little history. the band was founded in 2014 by bass player and composer sébastien levanneur and its aim is to bring together 70 s old school funk with the hippest actual sound laced with influences spanning from steely dan and headhunters. to snarky puppy and soulive. with mighty horn players. a rock and funky rhythm section. the big hustle s music has a very large variety of soundscapes. the first destination takes us to the washington. d.c. area with “turn up”. the groove is clearly go-go music flavored with the trademark sound of cowbells and of course it reminds us of zapp by the use of the talk box on lead vocals. performed here by saad el garrab. and don t miss out shaun martin (snarky puppy. erykah badu. kirk franklin amongst others) as a very special guest performing the talk box solo! second stop is “a curse. a blessing”. it’s an instrumental very much in the freddie hubbard vein during his cti years. the last leg of the a side ends with an instrumental interlude titled “flying donut”. double tribute to jay dee and flying lotus. the music is a simple hip hop loop based on samples. the b side takes us back into the past with two brilliant covers. involving rod temperton the late great british songwriter who scored some of michael jackson s biggest hits. now the idea for this b side is to do the opposite approach from the a side. taking 70 s and 80 s original music and make them travel into time to 2018. we first land with a heatwave song named “the star of a story” from their 1976 central heating album. track 2 is a herbie hancock song named “gettin to the good part” from his 1982 lite me up lp. this time traveler ep journey ends with an interlude. called “gimme dat”. the song deals with the need of new music. new sound. again. this blend of deep rooted funk laced with a contemporary edge is to be consumed without moderation. and do not forget that e.p. also stands for extended pleasure.

the fourth release of selva discos is one that has been bursting audiences into flames for a good while. barbatuques. a well-known brazilian group of body percussionists. adapted -baianá....- back in 2005 (first released on the -o seguinte é.... esse- album) and since then it became a staple of their concerts. getting crazy reactions from the children to the elder. being featured on soundtracks and sampled by trap duo tropkillaz. the original is a modern folk song from bahia composed by maria do carmo barbosa. but it was the mouth harp sound and the stomping beat on the barbatuques arrangement that imprinted its trademark sound - like the first lightning strikes before the storm. a couple of years ago. jan schulte. the german producer known for his taste for tropical drums (and also for using a few different aliases). heard the song and decided to add an extra punch to it for his dj sets: more drums. taken from a library record of -drumdrops- (hence the title). in his appearance at 2017 s dekmantel boiler room stage as bufiman. he dropped it to the crowd s awe. and it s been like that wherever its played - believe it. it s been tested all around. so now for the first time -baianá....- is issued on vinyl. it marks the second volume of the brasingles series. a new series on selva discos dedicated to releasing loud 12- singles with the original song on the a side and a rework on the b side. to please both the dj and the listener.
