I love nearly all music by Luke Francis Vibert. And so far as i know he produced tunes as Wagon Christ (the green vinyl: London Is a Country is one of my favorite records), Plug (Drum´n`Bass For Papa!!!), Luke Vibert (Stop The Panic featuring the steel guitar god BJ Cole is still running hot on my 1210´s), Amen Andrews, and much more. It is his ninth album as Luke Vibert and his third on Planet Mu.
Abstract and easy Trip Hop beats with some Jungle sprinkles and psychedelic drill moments. Pure love!
Clap! Clap! is a friendly speedball shaman who is trying to inhale as many cultural aspects as possible to translate and transport them with his music. He started his career as an MC in a florentine Hip Hop crew called “3CK” (from 1997-2002). In 2012 the Jazz musician initiated Clap! Clap!. He got signed by the “Black Acre” family and released his brilliant “Tayi Bebba” fairy tale LP. The mix of contemporary beats and sensible selected tribe samples earned a wide success in different musical scenes and also got played by many radio stations.
I never thought that i will feature a Basement Jaxx track in this blog. Thanks to Dub Phizix – his remix is the reason why i have to spread this bomb. Dub Phizix and the incredible Manchester Crew changed Drum and Bass three years ago with different sounding tunes like Marka. A big hype was the result and every time some good underground stuff will blow up the artists pop up with a own label and/or the major labels are creeping around the artists and try to sign them. Next steps are some combinations with other big sellers and the music often gets wishy-washy.
One year ago “Buffalo Charge” came out on his new own label SenkaSonic (i think it was the only release until now), funny wise it´s a “Buffalo” again. The remix is great and not wishy washy at all.
There is also a House Remix by Dead Phizix of “Breach – The Key Ft Kelis”. Skip it and listen to this wild shaker and the new Dub Phizix FabricLive Mix!
I was waiting for the “I” but here comes the “L”. Clap Clap continues his more straighter and minimal journey on his upcoming “Simple” EP. I love the intro with palmsugarsweet vocals and tribalpercussion, the instruments and the beatdrop are beautiful too. The pad and how it´s working reminds me a bit of older Kalkbrenner stuff…
