Audio Texture Radio Show - September 30, 2011

Another pleasingly mixed bag this week kicking off with some great progressive soul music from the mysterious Dirg Gerner fearuring Fatima on vocals followed by some slo-mo sci-fi beats from the new Kuedo album about to drop on Planet Mu. Tokyo Dawn have gone all pop with their latest release the solo project from one of Denmark's Boom Clap Bachelors under the Vindahl pseudonym and we're loving the boogie vibes of 'Not In Space'. Now Mello Music can always be relied on to deliver the hip hop goods and 95 Live are a great new addition to the roster and some great true school prospects. A hip hop base with more toppings than we care to mention then followed with another taster of the forthcoming Git album about to hit the streets from BBE.

The new Free The Beats comp is out and again offering a taste of unsigned beatmakers climbing the ladder and 'Strength and Science' from The Silent Titan is a little taste of what to expect from this uniquely packaged and limited CD run or free download compilation series. Now Mancini and The Creepers were sounding like Ghostpoet whilst he was still in his bedroom and we've always been a big fan and 'Don't You Remember' should be enough to make you want to discover more as well. Sarah Linhares then provided some sweet vocals over a catchy Kenlo Craqnuques riddim before Andreya Triana delivered an epic version of Fink's 'Perfect Darkness'. She is surely a major star in the making, buy the shares now!

David Minor then delivered some pleasingly twisted folk vibes from his new Nonine EP before we had to drop some more Gang Colours. Now there is a free download of some remixes of his original EP coming which are all nice but it sent us back to the originals again as the source material is amazing and well worth revisiting, we're looking forward to the album already. Now we hadn't heard of Dauwd before and we're feeling the deep bassline house vibes of 'Ikopol' and will explore more and all thanks to a nice new free download compilation of bassline royalty from the increasingly music obsessed Scion car company so big up to them. The Natacha Atlas remixes are about to drop with some nice new electronic versions of her more organic Arabic offerings and the Dog Beats remix of 'Batkallim' is alright with us and led nicely into a raw stripped down bassline riddim from Visionist and Lorca - rugged. Dub Gabriel feat The Spaceape then closed the show by laying down a politicised dubstep call to arms for the lazy arse millenials who seem to be slowly tearing themselves away from Facebook to the more dramatic surroundings of Wall Street and the like, let's hope that continues until the money starts to drip down again from that pesky 1%.
