Cumbia Locura, by Taggy Matcher & Kumbia Boruka

Cumbia Locura by Taggy Matcher & Kumbia Boruka, released 12 September 2016

1. Cumbia Locura
2. Cumbia Locura (Dub)

Taggy Matcher (aka Bruno “Patchworks” Hovart) is back with another musical trip, always knocking where you don’t expect him to. For this new single, the French Reggae producer has teamed up with the uprising Cumbia combo, Kumbia Boruka, for a scorching track inspired by Dillinger’s legendary Reggae single, “Cocaine in My Brain”.

Kumbia Boruka is a band led by Hernan Cortes, a percussionist and singer born in Monterrey, capital of the Cumbia music. After playing and touring with some of the biggest Cumbia’s artists, such as Celso Pina, he founded the six piece combo few years ago in Lyon and is currently touring and presenting their first EP, La Vida se Vive.

As a major figure of the music scene in Lyon, Bruno “Patchworks” Hovart was immediately seduced by Hernan voice and style. It ended in this perfect collaboration and meeting, between Jamaican vibes and Mexican melodies, now presented by Stix Records on a vinyl 7inch.

#VIBRA, by AbJo

#VIBRA by AbJo, released 01 July 2016

1. Alma do Sol (Introdução)
2. Tudo Que
3. Cannabis Sativa
4. Relatividad
5. #CaixaGang
6. Fela Interlude
7. Aerofônio
8. Dear Mamao
9. Ache O Caminho (For Dilla & Phife Dawg)

The follow up to Vibração Comigo, #VIBRA is the second installation of my ode to any and all Latin vibes, a lá future beats-style. The focus for this album: paying homage to all my favorite samples/sample sources, most of which were used by my musical heroes, Madlib, Jay Dee aka J Dilla, DOOM, and many others, while layering in samples from other latin/Brasilian, as well as African influences of theirs (and mine) like Arthur Verocai, Fela Kuti, or Azymuth, forming my own interpretation of all their musical palettes.

Fellow vibers, you may now completely, absolutely, infinitely, vibe out...

The Visitor, by Kadhja Bonet

The Visitor, by Kadhja Bonet | notes of 2016 |

The Visitor by Kadhja Bonet, released 21 October 2016

1. Intro - Earth Birth
2. Honeycomb
3. Fairweather Friend
4. The Visitor
5. Gramma Honey
6. Portrait Of Tracy
7. Nobody Other
8. Francisco

“The newly signed, genre defying Kadhja Bonet has announced the release of her debut The Visitor. On the album, Kadhja – pronounced “kod-ya” – invites us into a world not wholly our own, where past and future meet in a parallel, yet far lovelier, present. In anticipation of the release, Gorilla vs. Bear has shared the first track “Honeycomb”. Now available for streaming and free download, the song drifts listeners into a timeless, unplaceable realm of Kadhja’s own making. Fat Possum and Fresh Selects, two respected labels from different genres, have joined forces to bring us this transcendent debut – available in full on October 21.

The Visitor opens with an awe you’d expect from the golden age of cinema. In its half-mythical atmosphere, “Earth Birth” offers keys and choirs science-fictionally echoing down from deep space. This overture fades and Kadhja’s voice velvetly emerges on “Honeycomb” with a timelessness sending listeners scrambling to find her nearest genre. After running through classical, jazz, soul, folk, and even psychedelia, you find it ultimately impossible to comfortably place her. This is all by Kadhja’s design. For if she were “folk” it would only be the folk of some future aeon, a thousand hears hence. If her rich instrumentation of strings and wind strikes us as a “classic,” it’s not because it harkens to any past era, but because Kadhja paints perennial imagery that could as much be now as then as any other time.

Kadhja stays pretty mum – if not a little mysterious – about her own life story. She insists that her audience convene with her on imaginative and musical planes, instead of through byword associations with any scene or venue, be it in Los Angeles or on the beaches of Rio De Janeiro. What we do learn and should know about Kadhja is her early and formal training in classical music quarters, where she mastered violin and viola, learned flute and guitar, and gained the sharp compositional talents that frame every note and curve of The Visitor.

All writing and arrangement— except for the Jaco Pastorius melody put to her words on Portrait of Tracy— is entirely of Kadhja’s creation. While calling in friends like Te’amir Yohannes Sweeney for drums, as well as Low Leaf, Peter Dyer, Randal Fisher, and Itai Shapira for harp, synth, flute, and bass, Bonet still plays a good half of the instruments herself, including guitar, violin, flute, and the backup vocals that fill up the skies of her music. Kadhja also produced The Visitor, though with much of its mixing and engineering handled by her assistant producer Itai Shapira, one of the few souls trusted behind the curtains of her musical process.

The Visitor is an opus unpolluted by the mixed advice or overproductions that plague other albums. It plays through like one individual’s lucid dream in what is sometimes an all-too-dreamless musical landscape. Once we hear it, we recognize it as something that’s been harder and harder to find in the last thirty or forty years, though so badly missed. Kadhja has humbly learned from her predecessors while following their signs ever forward.”

Zora's Domain _ Zelda's Lullaby (Smigonaut Rework), by Night Owl Collective

Zora's Domain _ Zelda's Lullaby (Smigonaut Rework) by Night Owl Collective, released 29 May 2016

sugarkane's insight:

アブサーディストがリミックスしたリンジー・ロウエンドの"Gt40"に出会ったのが二年ほど前。この頃からMaxoやプッシャーなどが、ニンテンドー64やファミコン世代の独特な郷愁が滲みでた作品をサウンドクラウドへ公開し始め、そこから、ゼルダやマリオ、ドンキーコングなど、特定のゲームのキャラクター・ボイスや効果音、メロディーを、ネタとして使う動きが世界中に広まった。例えばテニソンの などは、もともと8bitサウンドを意識的に使う傾向のあった彼らの音を、ゲーム・ミュージックとジャズを同列にとらえたような独特な作風へと一気に昇華させたし、リル・ヨッティーの など、ゲーム・ミュージックの特性や効果音がそのまま曲のキャラクターになってしまっているものまで現れた。

sugarkane's insight:
サイドチェーン・コンプレッションという音響エフェクトをご存知だろうか? その存在が気になりだしたのは、今から4,5年ほど前、フレンチ・ハウスの一部の作品で、キックの位置と同時に鳴る、シンセ・パッドやSEが極端に圧縮/開放された、不思議なバウンス感、ハネ感を生み出しているものに出会ったからだ。しかし当時は、音響効果としては面白いものの、フィルターのバリエーションの一つなのだろうな、程度にしか気には止めていなかった。もちろんフィルターとは全くの別物なのだが。
それから数年経ち、俄然再注目するキッカケとなったのが、ご存知ケイトラナーダの出世作となった、ジャネットの"IF"のリミックスと、ティードラ・モーゼスの"Be Your Girl"のリミックスである。今まで聽いたことのない音、これは本当に衝撃的だった。およそR&B界隈では、それまで全く存在しなかったアレンジだったのだから。そう、サイドチェーン・コンプは、音響処理であるのと同度に、新しい楽曲アレンジとしても通用することが、その新しい音のインパクトそのもので証明されたのである。
iOSアプリの「サウンド・ドロップス」内に今回新しく追加したプレイリスト "sidechain compression" には、現時点で50曲強の、サイドチェーン・コンプが印象的で、センス良く、かっこ良く効いている曲を選んでみた。常にランダム再生されるので、気になった曲を見つけた際は、お気に入りタップをお忘れなく。そしてもちろん、公開後も随時楽曲を追加していゆく予定である。

shout out to the OG @kaytranada for being the originator of this sound,
