JUMO – DERIVE

Multidisciplinary artist Jumo splits divides his residency between Paris and the Atlantic coast, and his creative time between progressive Electronica and groundbreaking visual displays.  His last release Etape came last February, which of course went hand-in-hand with a stunning set of visuals.  His third EP ‘Derive’ is in places far more accessible; with single ‘Bloom’ featuring Holy Oysters.…

FEYNMAN – ILLUSIONS EP

Yoann Feynman’s ‘Illusions’ EP is out today via Parisian label Fake Music.  It’s a really interesting take on Funky House, with glimmers of Flume, Jackson 5, Justice and even The Beegees all sewn together with Feynman’s fresh, airy touch.  Tracks like ‘Diego In Vegas’ will have you strutting your stuff across a 70s dancefloor, while our…

TEOS – AWAKE EP

TEOS’ ‘Awake’ EP is full of the kind of deeply immersive beats that command some serious attention; skittering hi-hats and deep synths give it that fog-on-water vibe, whilst shimmering guitar melodies and haunting vocal samples elevate this EP way above the ordinary.  TEOS himself says:  “This EP is the product of about 4 months of work.

STWO – AURA

This release from Parisian producer Stwo [pronounced ‘stuː’ for anyone else wondering] is minimal in all the right places, but still packs a punch when it needs to.  Stretched out and pitch-distorted make up the majority of the melody and are accompanied by beautifully put-together bass and synth sounds, as well as clever little drum…

SNK∆ – CARNAVAL

Parisian producer SNK∆ has just released his debut LP ‘Carnaval’ on Cosmic Compositions.  The tape is as much free Jazz as it is experimental, instrumental Hip Hop, and even throws in a couple of classic Ska samples.  The LP manages to remain smooth, despite the glitching percussion and skewed production.  Stream ‘Carnaval’ below.

AROUND7 – SOUL ON WIRE

Regrettably, Province is a little late to the Around7 party.  The Parisian producer’s full length debut was released November 25, and is a sumptuous mix of Jazz and Hip Hop.  In fact, no one summarises the feel of the LP better than Around7 himself: “The aim of the tracks is to sound acousitc through the…
