AVER: Breakfast In Dystopia (Stream)

More new music emanating from the Village Live camp, as AVER returns with his latest project. The Natural Curriculum producer has delivered four brand new tracks, which serve as a pretty perfect accompaniment for the current shit-storm raging outside, thanks to the dystopian vein which runs through it. Unnerving sound effects and dub style reverb, punctuate big drums that sound like they just stumbled out of the Endtroducing era, and that’s just the first track. You can hear Breakfast In Dystopia in its full glory below, with downloads and physicals also available. Continue reading “AVER: Breakfast In Dystopia (Stream)”

Aver & Move 78: Housecat / Live From The Village (Stream)

Fantastic union of talent here, as The Natural Curriculum’s Aver teams up with self-described Berlin-based dystopian jazz band, Move 78, for two new singles. The group features a trio of exceptional musicians, including Doron Segal, who recently released his own jazz album on Village Live. As well as more traditional jazz themes, the two pieces also embrace the more modern art of sampling, thanks to Aver’s love (and skill) for the discipline. You can stream the two singles below and digital downloads are available on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Aver & Move 78: Housecat / Live From The Village (Stream)”

Something From Nothing is the lead single from the album and today I am pleased to be able to bring you the premiere of the brand new video. The track features Nottingham heavyweight, Cappo – the sole feature on the project – and the pair deliver a strong start to what looks set to be another jewel in the Village Live crown.

Aver: Portale

Village Live continue their recent run of formidable instrumental releases, with the latest album from Aver. Perhaps best known as the head producer of hip hop collective, The Natural Curriculum, Aver made the album while living in Berlin. That explains the German speech samples laced throughout the project, which are backed up with syncopated drum breaks and cuts from his fellow TNC family members. Check out the mini-mix below as well as the first video from the album, Portale. You can download Die Berlin Dateien here. Continue reading “Aver: Portale”
