SANGO – IN THE COMFORT OF

Sango’s new album ‘In The Comfort Of’ is “inspired by the idea that comfort and being comfortable doesn’t always have to mean complacency. Comfort is almost like being confident,” the Seattle-based producer told HighSnobiety. “You know enough to be comfortable. Complacent is like being too set and not caring, it’s like settling almost. So it’s…

JAY PRINCE – HEIGHTS

British MC and producer Jay Prince says of new track ‘Heights’: “My first release of the year, collaborated with the homie from Brazil [Deryck Cabrera] on this joint, hope you guys vibe with this one.”  Cabrera’s uplifting production, filled with fizzing hi-hats and gentle synths, sounds great underneath Prince’ optimistic bars, which carry with them a…

SANGO – MAIS MAIS MAIS

What it lacks in terms of length, ‘Mais Mais Mais’ more than makes up in energy and vitality [insert joke about sexual prowess here].  As he did on ‘Da Rocinha 3‘, Sango explores the themes of Latin American, but within an entirely modern framework.  Hand in hand with the aforementioned release goes a brand new tour, which will…

GOLDLINK X KOJEY RADICAL – PINK, BLUE, ORANGE [VIDEO]

GoldLink kicks off 2016 with a visual project related to his excellent debut album ‘And After That, We Didn’t Talk’.  The theme of past relationships was central to the album, turning the LP into a concept piece, and these ‘Pink’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Orange’ vignettes, created in collaboration with directors Rubberband and UK poet Kojey Radical,…

MR. CARMACK – GO GET HER [FT. TOM MISCH & JORDAN RAKEI]

San Francisco-born beatmaker Mr. Carmack teams up with fellow Soulectioner Tom Misch and Aussie producer Jordan Rakei on a new track etitled ‘Go Get Her’.  It’s a mellow but euphoric collaboration; simple, comforting melodies against paired down percussion.  Quite why the track cuts off so abruptly remains a mystery, stream below via SoundCloud.

MR. CARMACK – FAULTS

While Mr. Carmack has been on our radar for a while with projects such as his superb’White‘ and ‘Red‘ EPs, he never ceases to surprise us.  In collaboration with Red Bull Studios, the Soulection affiliate releases ‘Fault’, a new singly from his upcoming from his upcoming ‘The Yellow EP’.  ‘Faults” intense bassline and abstract, modern Trap rhythms are…

SAM GELLAITRY – ESCAPISM

Scottish producer Sam Gellaitry releases his ‘Escapism’ EP.  Launched at Phonox in Brixton this weekend, the five track projects delivers huge bass hits underneath synth flurries and distorted horns.  Glimmers of Rustie-esque Trap [‘Hyena’], the Middle East [‘Dreamscapes’] and even Dancehall [‘Long Distance’] jostle for position in this bright, super-synthetic collection.  Stream below via Spotify,…

GOLDLINK – AND AFTER THAT, WE DIDN’T TALK

GoldLink’s debut album ‘And After That, We Didn’t Talk’, arrived a week early via Soulection.  We guess he just couldn’t wait any longer, and from the tracks he shared in the build-up to the LP drop, neither could we. The variety of producers involved in AATWDT [Tom Misch, Medasin, Galimatias and long-time partner Louie Lastic] is…

GOLDLINK – NEW BLACK

Hot on the heels of ‘Dark-Skinned Women’, GoldLink treats us to yet another cut from ‘After That, We Didn’t Talk’, which he has decided to drop a week early.  ‘New Black’ retains the feel-good funky production we’ve come to love but goes heavy on the political message, with bars like “Cause cops killin’ blacks /…
