Another Friday, another small haul from the Soundcloud vaults. This week sees a pretty diverse lineup including the new single from Container, a gorgeous instrumental from Leaving Records boss Matthewdavid and the new implodes track, which is ace.
This week also saw i-d online throw up this gem of a mix from 15 year old techno wizard Happa, featuring tracks from the likes of Porter Ricks, Emptyset and Perc.
In slightly less definable territory, Co La dropped the first single from his album Moody Coup which is out on Software on 7th May. It’s pretty much anyone’s guess as to what you’d file this under, veering, as it does, between breathy sighs, pattering hand percussion and skittering synths. Probably best just to listen.
As a little film tip for the coming month, take a couple of hours out of an evening to catch the excellent Neighbouring Sounds (22 March). It’s a complex and multi-layered portrait of a developing city and its inhabitants that twists and turns in unexpected but pretty rewarding ways. It also boasts some fantastic sound design; intense and shocking whilst never being cliché. Check out the trailer below, and pop it in your diary.
Finally, if you’re anywhere near London next Wednesday 27th you should get along to the Shacklewell Arms to see Melt Yourself Down, the latest sonic experiment from members of Polar Bear and Sons of Kemet. Featuring Shabaka Hutchings, Tom Skinner and Pete Wareham as well as the vocals of Zun Zun Egui frontman Kushal Gaya, all signs point towards a pretty amazing set. If you need any more convincing, watch the seizure-inducing video below.
