Artists: Cockney Lama Title: Street Grooves EP Cat.: RBDIGI11 Format: Digital, Mp3 Release: 2014
Originally from Thessaloniki in Greece and now based in Hackney, East London, Cockney Lama brings a little French flair to his repertoire as he joins Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordings. His four track Street Grooves EP is packed fully of jacking beats, funky basslines and filters that hark back to late 90’s French House. It is released on 25th April through Robsoul’s digital only imprint.
Cockney Lama was influenced throughout the 90’s by DJs such as Alister Whitehead, Carl Cox, DJ Sneak, Tall Paul and A Guy Called Gerald who all helped introduce him to Techno & Tech House sounds. As well as playing parties across Greece he has also worked as a radio producer.
He describes his sound as, “mixing tech sounds and soul vocals with fat baselines, always with my love for old-school sounds in mind.”
The sound has scored him releases for Monique Musique (including remixes by Stimming and Alex Celler), Baile Musik and Natural Rhythm.
DJ Mag heaped high praise on his previous single ‘Losing Like A Man’, “A glorious piece of electronic composition. Moody, techy, atmospheric, glisteningly-produced, ‘Losing Like A Man’ is that type of house that you hear all too little of these days. A brilliant release, and no mistake.”
Artists: Neneh Cherry / Villalobos & Loderbauer: Vilod Title: Everything Cat.: STS24912 Format: CD Album, LP, Mp3 Release: 2014
Four Tet’s sparse, apocalyptic production practically demands Yeezus comparisons. But then again, Cherry was singing over sparse, brutal, state-of-the-art rap sonics nearly a quarter century ago.“ – Stereogum
In October 2013, Neneh Cherry made an exciting announcement. She was coming back with her first album of solo music in 18 years. A collaboration with RocketNumberNine produced by Kieran Hebden and featuring a guest appearance by Robyn – Neneh shared the eponymous track ‘Blank Project’ in December 2013. To start the New Year, Neneh has revealed a completely new original track ‘Everything’ as well as a remix of the track by the iconic techno producer/DJ Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer. For Neneh fans eager to hear the new material live, she also announces an intimate European tour for February and March, including club dates at London’s Concrete and Berlin’s Berghain.
