READ: SR x DJ Mag Hype Chart
Present in this month's DJ Magazine is a hype chart from yours truly.
Went like this:
1. Mono/Poly - Oil Fields [Fat City]
"The true sound of a mouth trumpet summer."
2. James Blake - CMYK [R&S]
"More serene composition from Blake."
3. Blawan - Iddy [Hessle Audio]
"New heat from Blawan's debut Hessle 12"."
4. V/A - Tropical Heat Vol. 1 [Myor]
"Slugabed, Mesak and Nino ride to the very pinnacle of awesome hip-hop."
5. Mount Kimbie - Maybes (James Blake Remix) [Hotflush]
"Blake shatters apart Kimbie's breakthrough, re-staining it a fragrant orange hue."
6. Guido - Mad Sax [Punch Drunk]
"Might as well be called Mad Sex given the facial reactions this one's getting..."
7. XI - Ghost [Orca]
"First platter from the Orca imprint frames XI's drum funk perfectly."
8. V/A - Astro:Dynamics [Astro:Dynamics]
"New compilation of next level beats."
9. Ramadanman - Glut [Hemlock]
"Mr Kennedy happily turning his woodpecker percussion up to 11 on this one..."
10. Eleven Tigers - Clouds Are Mountains [Soul Motive]
"Illustrious debut LP from Lithuanian producer Eleven Tigers."
With thanks to Markle.
