Caitlin Blake - Pristina

Caitlin Blake was suggested to me by a stranger and after giving their Soundcloud a good listen, I’m glad they were.

This relatively unknown New Zealand artist wields a James Blake’esk Lo-fi Downbeat sound that’s easily accessible to the remnant heads of the post-dubstep years.

Well worth a listen.

Big up.

Check out the début album ‘We Come from the Trees’ from Brisbane based artist Epkitan (Grimes from Science Project), out now on Dub Temple Records.

This album is distinct, original and special insofar as it has been pieced together using recordings from Buru island in the Maluku Province of Indonesia. The label describes it as “painting an aural picture of the east Indonesian landscape on the frontal lobe”, you can’t really argue with that. The release is an organically tribal re-imagining of Jungle, Roots, Hip Hop and Dubstep and delivers with each and every track.

I cannot recommend it enough to anyone that has their head in any of the aforementioned genres or anyone at all looking for something different that exudes quality.

Big Up!

It’s been a little while.

It’s been a little while since I last posted tunes here.

I have been more than occupied by my other pursuit, practising law. A particular case had consumed me and my time like no reasonable analogy could describe. This case has now progressed beyond the need for my constant and undivided attention and as such its grip on my mind has been loosened slightly.

As a matter of sanity I have returned to the depths of my musical pursuits in order to re-flavour my bland, black and white corporate nightmare, with the vibrant harmonies only music can bring. 

Come share with me the delights of these sounds, tangle with the complexities of the noise they project and experience the emotions they engender……

Check out the second EP ‘Phrixus’ from the Brisbane Trill gangster Provis, out now on local label Dub Temple Records. 

"The son of the cloud god, Phrixus, also meaning "thrilling, causing shivers", is the name of Provis’ 2nd EP for DTR and sums up the approach of the Brisbane based producer. Steeped in southern rap and f#cked up club bangers of the new school, Phrixus is a lofty and wistful journey, ascending Provis’ trill beats into a dark and restrained "dead-zone", coloured with R’n’B sentiments, and a nod to soundtracks of science-fiction past.

The EP opens with the preverbal gunshot of “Dark Purple”, a neon jam that breaks apart and rebuilds before you’ve realised you’re banging your head. “Take Lead” maintains this slinky club energy and bridges the EP into chopped and screwed r’n’b territory with “Finest”, touching on Uk bass and clipped Garage vocals. “One” ends the EP on a cloud, siren vocals echo through rising synths and glimpse an undead bass-line, bringing the journey to a close on a reflective bitter-sweet note.” - Dubtemple Records

Big up!
