Release Recap – June 12th


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.

Out on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.



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.

Catch it on Beatport and Spotify.




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.

Available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon.




4. No Explanations, TVAM

Out on Blak Hand Records / Static Caravan. A pleasingly riotous two and a half minutes. B-side Migrate Your Mind is a highly recommended noisy treat.

Available from all good digital stores including Spotify and iTunes.




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.

Available from all good digital stores including Spotify, iTunes and Beatport.



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.

You can get it on Beatport and Spotify.





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.

Available on iTunes, Spotify and all good digital stores.



You can listen to all of these on our Release Recap Spotify playlist. Enjoy!
