New Singles And Niceness

Domu's got a brand new bag...er, label!

With grad school in full swing, posting to ForwardEver is becoming more of a time crunch–but never fear, the info will still be on offer! For now, a run down of some key singles that have come cross the desk, into the DJ bag etc...

Future Jazz/Downtempo Key Singles

Domu–Tell Me Something (Trebleo)
Domu's back with a new label and a solid single, that comes in vocal, light and dark dub versions--each one a dom-uniique take on the track. Fat, wobbly bass lines lead the way. Look for tracks by Yotoko, DJ Marin and (!) Sonar Circle soon.

Atjazz–For Real (Innervisions)
Fat, fat release from the new Sonar Kollektiv imprint, with Martin Iverson doing what he does best–innovative, soulful, dreamy house music.

Fat Freddy's Drop–Caj's Cray–Blood & Fire Vs. Deep Sound Remix (Kartel)
This New Zealand group has been slaying audiences with their downbeat jazz-dub live shows complete with fantastic horn section and vocals. Their latest two-part single sees drum & bass remixes from Artificial Intellegence and dub mixes from Digital Mystikz and Blood & Fire.

Sabrina Malhieros–Cada Voce–Max Cole & Beatnik Remix (Far Out)
Ms. Malhieros is for all those who love sultry Brasilian divas. This chill mix on Far Out by Mick Cole & Beatnik is full of lush synths and thick beats. Refreshing!

Ed Motta
–E Muita Gig Vei–Mark deClive-Lowe Remix (Ether)
For another side of the Brasilian sound, check this lively Ed Motta track, which our man Mark dCL pummels with fractured drum work and slithering basslines, plus his tardemark sharp Rhodes n' ting. MdCL strikes again!

Zion Lockwood–Solitaire (Deeplay)
Don't miss this Latin-dance sleeper, that remind you of Faze Action or Masters At Work. Deeplay Sweden coming with the goods!

Bombay Dub Orchestra–Remixed EP (Six Degrees)
Mixes from Thievery Corp, Pathaan and others make this a bucolic trip to India by way of King Tubby's studio. A fantastic, future-Asian combo.

As One–Planetary Folklore Volume 2 (Archive)
Remember As One's "PF Vol 1"--on Mo' Wax? Tres sublime peoples. This one continues the legacy of the first--thoughtful techno meets jazz business. Of course Herbie would love this, and dance in with his Arps and Moogs!

Martin Brodin–Big Bang–So Phat Remix (DeepTec)
The close of our singles chart is a round-bass house tech-house stomper from a producer who has his heart in Detroit and mind in Stockholm.
