Amin Payne & Ben Bada Boom – UTURN MEON by Chris

There’s somewhat of a global effort behind this collaboration between local Melbourne hero Amin Payne, Germany-based Ben Bada Boom and French label Cascade Records. A well-deserved sexy video for a sexy song; pushing the limits of what the YouTube monkeys will allow.

Amin and Ben have a talent for making beats which stand on their own as ‘songs’ rather than simplistic instrumentals- really bringing the craft to a new level of creativity and musicianship.

Ackryte – Filmstrip by Chris

Cascade Records has overtaken Warp and Ninja Tune for me when it comes to exciting new releases; the Paris-based label is constantly supporting underground gold- and their latest release with Resistant Mindz is no exception.

A great compilation with some fantastic post-hip-hop/trip-hop etc. sounds from a plethora of talented artists, including FTR faves BrokeRepeat Pattern and Ackryte (above), there’s some real special creativity running through the grooves of this record, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

Repeat Pattern (previously posted here) has released a new digital album with one of my favourite indie labels, Cascade Records. The album is available for a name-your-price download on http://cascaderecords.bandcamp.com/album/08-09

It’s a neat acid-jazz cross trip-hop record, I highly recommend you go grab it… and while your at it, why not support the artist with a few bucks?

PS: I’ll be posting another mixtape for new years, so stay tuned for Jan 1st

I’ve had this album for quite awhile, sitting on my iTunes accumulating plays.

I think it’s time I posted about it.

40s With Ghost is a short track (under 1 minute). I highly recommend you check out the FREE ALBUM which is a collaboration between artists Ackryte, Broke and Repeat Pattern out on Cascade Records’ bandcamp page.

This track by Broke is a jazzy downtempo piece with neat sampled flourishes throughout it. I chose to post this particular track simply because it’s a good teaser for the rest of the amazing album. Seriously. Check it out.
