Title: Set It Out / Mercy
Label: GAMM
Release date: Monday 24th June, 2013
Listen: SoundCloud
Buy: Piccadilly Records
 
More info:If, like me, your first reaction to news of another ‘Mercy Mercy Me’ re-edit is one of doubt, suspend your pessimism for twelve minutes and treat your ears to this truly epic interpretation, with live bass, guitars, Rhodes and horns from Vulzor, and arrangements and programming from Estèphe, the duo who are collectively called Revivre. On the flip, Midway’s ‘Set It Out’ gets a similar working; the sales notes that suggest this effort makes the original sound like the remix is not far off the mark. Stellar musicianship and a passionate attention to detail make this release the finest from GAMM in some time.

Title: Hinterland
Listen: SoundCloud
 
More info:Self-described as ‘jazz sample based old school shit from Germany,’ FloFilz sums his own sound up fairly accurately. What makes his beats so dope is the dusty, lo-fi aesthetic pierced by his neck-snapping hard-hitting snares. ‘Hinterland’ is his latest offering; you can stream the full track on his SoundCloud.
