CONTEST: JOSEPH CAPRIATI VIP PACKAGE IN NYC

Four tickets to Capriati’s 12-hour set and more
Jambalaya - Rapper Big Pooh - Hall of Justus

Nice, tight 150 seconds of phatness from 9th Wonder on the mix, RBP customarily flowing freaky, 9th pulling all the right simple tricks at all the right moments. Not groundshaking but strangely addictive. 

Surf Smurf - Munk & Rebolledo - Gomma

Pachanga Boy, Rebolledo, takes a break from writing with Superpitcher for a whimsical collaboration with Munk. As the title hints, expect a tongue-in- cheek combination of disorienting surf rock and weighty disco rhythm, steeped in a showering of sleaze. A touch of acid-disco creeps in with the lively bonus track, 'Got It Baby', but it's the controlled chaos of Rebolledo's wild, wigged-out giddy dub version of the title tune that steals the show.

  

So It Goes feat Bukue One & Agne Motie - Rebel Sketchy - Ground Level

Rebel Sketchy has been feeding breakbeat tracks into the scene for a good few years now, yet with his ‘Goodbye Gravity’ album he’s cast his net a bit wider. ‘So It Goes’ calls on Californian rapper Bukue One to rhyme over a bass music bed, with vocalist Agne Motie purring sweet sonnets in-between. It’s quite commercial, radio-friendly and poppy, yet will still pick up early doors club play. The Bert On Beats remix tickles with a tropical underbelly, while Kwerk turns it into more of a straight-up electroid breakbeat banger. 

Trying To Come Up - Roc Marciano feat Boldy James - Man Bites Dog

Woah, Roc should produce more if this is the kind of delicious strangeness he comes up with. Nothing in 'Trying To Come Up' flows, rather it's a constant stop start of jazzy rolls and art-rock intrigue, like something off Eno's golden age period (think 'Another Green World' or 'Before & After Science') stumbled in on by Roc & Boldy, their lines similarly caught frozen between conclusiveness and confusion. Beyond it all the textures are just delicious, warm, fat, addictive, somewhere 'tween late Beefheart and the Meat Puppets. Not gonna light-up the message boards but all the more compellingly odd for it.
