Beautiful sounds on the new EP from vocalist Fiona Jane, as she teams up with producer LRD, for The Exit. The two met on Brapp, where LRD has been making a lot of noise for the past couple of years.
As with a lot of other artists on the network, they decided to collaborate beyond the app itself and the result is five perfectly crafted songs, all drenched in emotion. Read the rest of this entry »

RTJ favourite BOOTS released a new song a couple of days ago, much to the delight of the internet and me. The track is called Soon Be Gone and it’s a brooding affair, which reminds me of Massive Attack’s later offerings, in all the best ways.

D£DW8 have teamed up with Crucial Recordings’ own Sleeper for a limited edition vinyl release. The record will feature two new tracks – Dark Things and X Rated – both moody, glitchy and dark as fuck. You can buy the vinyl here and there are digital downloads available here. There is also a video for X Rated, which you can see above.

Since the events in Manchester a few weeks ago, the outpourings of love and charity for the city have been inspiring to say the least. Especially with division and hate seeming to be at an all-time high in the UK right now. Up there with the best of them is this new compilation, Manchester With Love.
Featuring over 220 tracks, from Manchester’s musical community, this album does two things – it shows the rich diversity and unity within the various Manchester scenes, plus it also shows that the great city and it’s residents will not be brought down or divided by these horrendous acts.

Stones Throw long ago transcended the boundaries of being a hip hop label and now their roster boasts an alarming amount of talent, from a wealth of genres and styles. Take their latest signing, singer and violinist, Sudan Archives. The 23 year old Ohio resident is forging her own unique path, in a industry that is increasingly saturated with trite soundalikes and cliched repetitions. She is also self-taught on the violin – which is impressive in itself – having been inspired by Sudanese fiddlers, among other musicians. Her first single is a sublime number and gives you a first class idea of what she is all about. Haunting self-harmonies and glitchy electro backing, all laced with her fiddle and all produced by her as well. Sudan has an EP due out next month, so watch out for more news on that coming soon.

Great new track from Button Eyes, which is taken from a recent compilation by Berlin-based collective, Project Mooncircle. Featuring typically sublime vocals from CW Jones, as well as 184’s ever dope production, I’m hoping we’ll hear more from the crew this year. You can stream the track below and the compilation itself is available here. Read the rest of this entry »
