Andy Mac – Horse Fly Dub

A-2257107-1393088049-8364.jpeg.jpg

Andy Mac is a Bristol-based electronic music producer. While his past solo projects focused on deep house and broken beat, his most recent release Diving Bird sees him pay respects to Bristol’s dub heritage.

‘Horse Fly Dub’ is one of the standout tracks, conjuring the hazy rhythms of island life at night.

As he told Stamp the Wax:

“And with Horse Fly there was a particular rhythm in the drums in some reggae that has always fascinated me because it doesn’t seem to run half time or it runs double time even and I think I was thinking about that a lot. You listen to some of these tracks and it almost sounds like country music, which I think was quite big in Jamaica. Poor and Clean by Gregory Isaacs would be an obvious example for me.”

Smooth sailing.

Dark, deep, delicious — how else to describe the timeless music from Belfast drum n bass artist Calibre, who’s new album Grow just dropped on DJ Craig Richards’ /tnslp001″>The Nothing Special label. Big up to Richards on the dope album artwork as well.

Snowee & Enjoy – South

“Doubts self on a daily basis.” That’s what 17 year old producer Enjoy scribbled onto his Soundcloud page. His collaboration on ‘South’ with fellow beat crafter Snowee hit my radar via a Throwing Snow reshare on SoundCloud. Take a listen and be prepared to get lost in the drop.

There Is No Right Time is the ten track debut album from Berlin-based house producer Youandewan, AKA Ewan Smith. Stamp the Wax, which premiered Smith’s collaboration with Steve Huerta on the track ‘Left on Lucy,’ has called the record one of “the best electronic music LP’s to have graced our ears this year.”

Lush in synths and drum n bass bounce, ‘Waiting for L’ is still one my favorite tracks (video below). This is one of those rare albums that takes you on a euphoric journey from start to finish.

This is it. The pinnacle for me of piano-stabby techno. I’ve opened with this, closed with it, had an ecstasy peak in the middle of a set with it. It just surrounds you and is super euphoric. I get goosebumps just thinking about it… – Falty DL picks some classics
