The King of Anxiety - Petite Noir - Double Six

With a debut album ready to go on Double Six, Yannick Ilunga teases us with this solo-produced taster EP. And quite a thing of beauty it is too, echoes of Wild Beasts, Joy Division and Talking Heads, all overlaid through sparse productions that build and drop with equal measures of tension and harmony. In the legacy of emotive acts like Sebastien Tellier, a great signing for Double Six. 

Out of Sight - Dan Shake - Black Acre

Dan Shake is the first artist outside of Detroit that Kenny Dixon Jr has allowed a run out on his Mahogani Music. The Londoner just gave him a CD, and that was that. Indeed, there was probably not much to think about. This latest jaunt for Black Acre is a stunner. 'Out of Sight' devastates with its rough, rasping bassline, incessant electric piano chords and live drums. 'Traders II', a collaboration with Canada's Rennie Foster, has soothing Rhodes-esque keys, a filthy bassline with just a faint whiff of acid and horns. Oh my, those horns. It's all sublime. 

47 EP - Lil Jabba - Local Action

Embracing both footwork and slow, juddering hip-hop patterns, Lil Jabba’s return to Local Action proves a rather emphatic one. Following in the heavy footsteps of his 'Gully EP' for True Panther, '47' properly presents Jabba’s menagerie of slightly oddball, detuned bell work and footwork-influenced rhythm programming, with ‘Tea’ and ‘Skates’ being the perfect example of him taking the lush melancholy of Mr Mitch’s music and meshing it with more hi-hat-driven percussion.

Cally Rd - Osamu Kimuto - Little Corner

The fourth release on the boutique label Little Corner feels like it’s taken a bigger stride out onto the centre of the dancefloor. Two grime-influenced cuts delivered with the frenetic percussion precision of ‘Wad’-era Pearson Sound.
