The latest instalment of our new release catch up, bringing you up to speed with the week’s great new music.
1. High Class Cat, Raf Vilar.
New on Far Out Recordings from celebrated Brazilian singer Raf Vilar, High Class Cat mixes Brazilian music with pop, folk and a hint of jazz. On the great opening track ‘Carnivore’, Raf is joined by Heidi Vogel, ex-Cinematic Orchestra, and London-based rapper, LyricL.
2. Life is Good, Ephemerals.
An uplifting soulful EP, out on Jalapeno Records. Featuring a stellar line up of remixes including a D&B reworking from Technimatic and a fine house mix from Animist.
3. New Moon, Common Tongues.
Out on Dawson Breed Music. A lovely and punchy bit of alternative rock. It suggests we should expect good things of their debut album, due later this year.
4. No Explanations, TVAM
5. 5 Years of Gruuv, Vol. 1, Various Artists
Gruuv celebrate their 5th anniversary this summer. (Congratulations!) To help mark the occasion they are releasing 6 EPs featuring some exclusive new music from their favourite producers. Volume 1 includes Audiojack and Channel X.
6. Come Alive, Ramin Rezaie
Out on Plus Recordings. No messing about with this bit of House. The same goes for the two bonus tracks Wid It and Cleminine.
7. Skeewiff’s Funky Shizzle, Skeewiff
Last but far, far from least. The name says it all. It would be fair to say this is an album crammed full of funk. Out on Pedigree Cuts.
You can listen to all of these on our Release Recap Spotify playlist. Enjoy!
