Audio Love 12.12.14
Various Artists – TRP001 (трип – pronounced Trip)
Nina Kraviz launces her new label with this double 12” showcasing some heavyweight talent. We’ve got tracks here from Nina herself, Steve Stoll, Bjarki, Population One (A.K.A. Terrence Dixon), Exos and Parish Smith and they’re all deep but edgy, dancefloor goodness. You have to check “Out of Control (Vocal Mix)” by Population One and “Pop Song” by Steve Stoll. Fucking heavy.
Gala Drop – II LP (Golf Channel)
The ever reliable friend that is Golf Channel has just dropped this excellent long player from Portuguese collective Gala Drop. They draw their influences from far and wide, drawing on a sphere spanning punk, funk and electronics. The sound they end up with though feels cohesive and individual however. This is a lovely collection of tracks that I’m looking forward to getting to know on my lunchtime walks. Big up.

Hugo Barritt – Penumbra EP – Construct
What a banger from Gerd Janson & Lauer on the Tuff City Kids remix #2 on here. Rest of the EP's a cracker n all.
Squarewave – Through My Mind – ViAAL
Ace 3rd release from the fledgling ViAAL Records with a dramatic throbbing beauty from Squarewave replete with a Deadstock 33s remix from Mr Robertson. Going with the original of Through My Mind but they're all ace.
B£AMS – Unforthcoming Self – Sonicrouter
This one been getting mad love from me the last few weeks. Brixton resident, B£AMS follows up the first volume of his £300 STERLING beat tape series with Unforthcoming Self. It's a cracker. Out now on cassette and digital.
