Be Back Soon

Out of town for the weekend again, I'm just dropping by to leave you some words and sounds to keep you company while I'm out. A bit like leaving the radio on so your dog doesn't go mental and eat the blinds.

Futura - Nuevo Negro Futura (2008)

Accompanying my PDF layout adventures today has been Modeselektor. Truth be told I'm not a massive fan of their more minimal compositions, or minimal in general for that matter. But today something about B.M.I is ticking the boxes. Might be therapeutic listening as I painstakingly alter the kerning of text.

Leading the jazzy charge in my library alongside the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack is even more Mr. Scruff. I'm actually more of a fan of the regular album version with some solid lyrical throwdowns from Roots Manuva but the 10th anniversary re-issue includes this nice instrumental of it, and I shan't turn my nose up to free extras.

More UNKLE, breaking away from the moody trip-hop vibe that I adore, we have more of a display of DJ Shadow's contributions to the debut. Part 2 of Drums Of Death is chock full of turntablism, samples and more emceeing. Part 2 is my favourite of the two, and rings in the downtempo last part of the album in in beautiful fashion.
