seems like every other day, i’m offered an amazing mix/album to feature here, and this one no exception. an obscure, psychedelic ride from the masterful lamin fofana, who’s consistently impressed me with his productions, djing, mixes, human presence, and now he’s about to begin playing live shows (and will be playing one of our brooklyn events next month, deets to come). safe to say, this man is the truth.

arca

just cuz we were a bit more quiet around here for a while, don’t think we stopped listening. arca is one of the hardest-working and most exciting producers in new york right now, one of the brightest talents on uno‘s bustling roster, and going to be producing tracks for all your favorite vocalists soon.

new one “manners” is an emotional stunner. #feelings

Arca – Manners

“little now a lot” is pretty mind-boggling, completely switching up at :50. this one is off baron libre which was a free uno giveaway for a time before the page was replaced with a new release – today’s equivalent of going out of print?

Arca – Little Now A Lot

there’s also an appropriately funny/twisted music video for “ass swung low”

stretch 2 will drop august 6th via uno.

:: arca soundcloud

catch arca at our party, dreams 3.0 in brooklyn on 7.29, alongside pictureplane, grimes, and myself.

by Kingdom & Subtrança

woo!


fay – “din”

when time no place (nguzunguzu, rainbow arabia, san gabriel) tips you on something that “doesn’t sound like any other record you’ve heard this year” you take notice. there’s definitely something cool happening here, with productions just begging to be remixed.


kingfisherg: “indian mound”


kingfisherg – indian mound (youtube)

this is why blogs like these are made, to shout out gems like these that pop up from seemingly nowhere. i found this on some forum where it was described as “absolute perfection”. agreed.


cooly g

here’s an artist we fully support who too few people in the states seem to know about: cooly g produces slick next level beats and sings on them and she’s signed to hyperdub and a badass. and dj rashad is a fan.

as soon as the synths kicked in on her gorgeous single “landscapes” i knew the situation was serious.

her new record playin’ me is one of the nicest i’ve heard in recent memory. seek that.

Cooly G – He Said I Said


E + E: PROMISE


If I have created a world for you, in your place,
God, you had to come to it confident,
and you have come to it, to my refuge,
because my whole world was nothing but my hope.

Da Mind of Traxman / TONIGHT in BK


we’ve been delayed on posting this on the blog-blog for a while now, but traxman’s mind of traxman lp is a juke masterpiece and one of the best albums we’ve heard so far this year. the chicago veteran has been important in the evolution of chicago house into juke, and touches on so many styles and insane drum patterns and sample flips it can be dizzying, but as a whole the record is a serious psychedelic slice of pure soul music from the future.

let these amazing exclusive tracks traxman hooked us up with warm you up for his set tonight (fri the 25th) at 285 kent alongside Howse, Octo Octa, Ñaka Ñaka, The Range, and yours truly. come get your mind reprogrammed to 160bpm, or as traxman said, it’s like you’re missing “ringling brothers, the greatest show on earth” check it out.

traxman – lifeeee is for ever
traxman – footworkin on air
traxman – 1988
bonus:
traxman – budda worx
traxman – movinnnn
traxman – 1976
