Space Captain – ‘Easier’ (Official Video) – YouTube

June 10, 2015 at 10:22 am


Been really enjoying the soul jazz artists coming out lately.  After really diving into the Joomanji catalog, I heard about this new band, Space Captain, from Brooklyn NY.

Melding elements of hip hop, soul and psychedelic rock, the Brooklyn-based group are set to release their first double A-side “Easier”/ “Remedy”, with Tru Thoughts on July 24th, ahead of a debut EP later this year.

Yannah Valdevit “Gotta Keep Me Goin”

February 5, 2013 at 6:00 am


I got turned on to Yannah Valdevit by her song, Western Horizons. Then, I went to her new album, Equilibrium.  The fact that it is on world renowned label, Tru Thoughts, is enough for anyone to check a new record out, and I'm glad I did.  This is actually her first worldwide release, with co-production duties going to Zed Bias.  Lots of great electronic sounds, with a hint of jazz in there, which was a clencher for me.  The lead off track, "Gotta Keep Me Goin" has been on repeat for a little while now, so I figured I should share with you, and then I can move on to obsessing about something else.

Quantic & Alice Russell – I’ll Keep A Light At My Window

I feel truly blessed to be alive while music like this is being created.  Not only is Quantic one of the most consistent producers, and musicians, in the world, but teaming up with Alice Russell makes for an unstoppable force. Their new album, Look Around The Corner, is available stateside in April on Tru Thoughts.

Wild Cookie “Serious Drug”

Anthony Mills & Freddie Cruger aka Red Astaire team up for some goodness that is Wild Cookie.  I can’t tell if this is an official video, but all I know is the big reverb on Anthony’s voice is what caught me.  Amazing language all around, from the chorus to the lyrics.  I need this on vinyl asap…
