Audio Texture Radio Show - March 10, 2014

A trio of quirky yet soulful electronic tunes got the show off to a fine start this week, kicking off with the wobbly, largely instrumental strains of Mr. Mitch closely followed by the vaguely disturbing vibes of James Ferraro before the slow burner, "Vapore" from Palmistry paved the way for the twisted UK hip hop of Strange U's ode to Africa. Jeremiah Jae then contributed his ever welcome MCing talents to some fine languid beat making to get everyone juiced up about his forthcoming album on Warp records, should be great.

Barrio Lindo were next up with some great dubbed up, percussive, global sounds with his home made and self played instruments and was also a taste of his interesting album about to drop on the unstoppable Project Mooncircle. An inspired American African connection then jumped in with some great Afrorganic hip hop vibes with Joe Driscoll's vocal versatility providing the perfect foil for Sekou Kouyate's excellent Kora playing. Karl Hector and crew then waded in with some full on funk. Speedometer then showed how to tastefully cover one of the year's biggest tunes with their swinging take on Pharrell's "Happy".

Peshay has ditched his drum and bass for some of that good old soul, jazz and funk with his new material on Tru-Thoughts and we particularly like the jazz beats of "Vanguard". Now the DopeGems album is about to drop on Heavenly Sweetness and we could have pretty much played any of the tunes from the album but chose the lovely, laid back vibes of "Solstice". Luviia then upped the tempo with some short but sweet, boogie beats before Slakah the Beatchild hit us with some great nu-soul, out now on BBE Records. The more than danceable Arabic house sounds of Boddhi Satva's remix of Alsarah & The Nubatones marked the beginning of the shows uptempto finale. We then couldn't resist dropping another tune from the new Kassem Mosse album on Workshop before giving you another taste of the forthcoming Downliners Sekt album which ended the show in a decayed, yet deeply soulful manner.

Audio Texture Radio Show - March 3, 2014

So dreamy, wobbly and soulful sort of sums up this weeks show with the liquid sounds of the Lone remix of Illum Sphere's, "Embryonic" setting the tone nicely. Downtempo beats were then the order of the day firstly with the jazzy vibes of SNKA before the experimental, folk sounds of Lasse Passage and finishing off with the quirky end of Laurent Garnier given a Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez remix . The beats then went uptempo courtesty of All City records and the mysterious, never to be named Gamertag from Berlin.

It is nice to see Karaoke Kalk back releasing material for the new year and the great Ritornell Rerustle of Will Samson should tell you why we're happy. The show then took a trip over to Mali for a taste of the incredible vocal talents of Fatourmata Diawara from the new Rough Guide to Mali compilation, pure African soul music.

Then came the great bootleg boogie remix of Pharell and Daft Punk from the Yam Who crew which has got feelgood sunshine vibes splattered all over it, which led nicely into the more minimal boogie vibes of R&R Groove Xpress from those nice Dutch boys, Fremdtunes. Heterotic then upped the tempo with some great synth action before the wobbly, sprawling house sounds of "Dwell Master Infinite" from the new SFV Acid album graced the show which paved the way for Kassem Mosse to go deep, dark and jazzy   all at the same time with the closing tune from his great new album on Workshop. The feelgood, soulful and insanely catchy "Dionne" from Osunlade then closed the show in super nice style
