Greymatter is Brighton-based electronic producer Graham Luckhurst. After a two-year hiatus of being “pigeonholed into deep house,” he’s back with his new album No Blood Without on his very own label Unique Uncut.
You can cop the broken beat single ‘Clocks’ now on Bandcamp. Expect to hear more of these beat-breaking skills.
Gulu singing legend and ‘Acholi folk pop’ pioneer Otim Alpha teamed up with London producer Jesse Hackett and multi-instrumentalist Albert Ssempeke to produce Ennanga Vision, “deconstructed musical forms from the kingdoms of Uganda.”
The album’s single ‘Otim’s War’ mashes together techno elements into traditional choral signing. The result is something like you’ve never heard before. The music video is fascinating too.
A Made Up Sound (formerly known as 2562) is Dutch producer and former record label owner Dave Huismans. He recently announced the shutdown of his eponymous imprint by putting out a 20-track retrospective: A Made Up Sound – (2009-2016). His forward thinking techno will continue to stand on its own.
Ross Tones is London-based electronic producer Throwing Snow. His broken-beat track ‘Lumen’ appeared on last year’s Best of compilation. His newest track entitled ‘One for the Booth’ is another locked groove exclusive to the forthcoming 111 track #SaveFabric compilation which is avaible for pre-order here or on Bandcamp.
PS. If you like this, check out ‘Bells, Walking‘ from Joy Orbison’s other moniker C/OR.
Boxcutter is Northern Ireland electronic producer Barry Lynn. I first discovered him back in 2006 with the drum machine track ‘Skuff’d‘ on his Oneiric album debut.
Boxcutter has released multiple albums, EPs, and singles since but on his latest track ‘Canopy,’ he’s proving once again that class is permanent. The chopped jazz break is sure to delight fans who admire his moody dubstep aesthetic.
