Here's another HipHop Blues release, this time by a Ninja Tune artist called Kid Koala. Most of you guys probably know him pretty well right? So here's his turntable dedication to the Blues called "12 Bit Blues". This is a great bit of music ;-)
Here's the new EP by Cologne based Globetrotter Kosta Kostov. It's called "French Wine" and features the serbian mighty voice man MC Killo Killo and the party animals Cologne Boom Chak Crew. The two original tunes are remixed by some big names of the global beats scene, like Marcelinho da Lua (Vapa Records/Brasil), DJ Click (No Fridge/Paris) and DJ Lucio K (San Francisco). These are good basics for a party jam so check them out!!!
Cheers everybody, I'm back after a little while with some new hot stuff. Summer break is over and the labels are dropping a lot of new releases again, so it's time to spread some of them. Midnight Calling is the follow-up to Swing Republic's well-respected and pioneering debut album Electro Swing Republic. This time around, producer Per Ebdrup is joined by singer and co-writer Karina Kappel for an album of originals. To me it feels like Swing Republic is going more into the pop direction with this album. It reminds me a bit of Caro Emerald because the focus is not anymore on the club but more on the radio. My favourite track is defenitely the "High Hat" with its beautiful trumpet solos, simply great! Have a listen to the Minimix on soundcloud to get a glimpse of what the album sounds like.
