DJ Suspect And Doc TMK ft. Carpetface And Audible1 - E.V.E.R.Y.B.O.D.Y. 7" [Luhna Records]

DJ Suspect And Doc TMK ft. Carpetface And Audible1 – E.V.E.R.Y.B.O.D.Y. 7

Here is the new 7 inch from DJ Suspect of France's Funk League on Luhna Records. Following on from last year's phenomenal Funky As Usual album, this time Suspect teams up with fellow French MPC enthusiast Doc TMK and enlists UK emcees Carpetface and Audible1, who bring back the Funk yet again over a multilayered production with slamming drums, beat boxes, horns, funky bassline, flute, it's all there. The scratches are crazy - a step above the usual - and the chorus is the kind you end up singing along to without thinking about it.

Koushik – Nothing’s the Same 7″ [Stone’s Throw]

Although hailing from a Hip Hop background - check his remix EP’s for the science - Canadian beatsmith Koushik’s more recent output could be dismissed as coffee table musak. That would be a mistake, as although his folksy psyched out soundscapes can become repetitive, there’s a playful lightness of touch about his dreamy arrangements while his reverb drenched warblings betray a refreshing vulnerability.
