Electronic music composer, sound designer and dj – Murthovic presents The Roundup, a selection of 10 cuts, for the week ended 2nd June 2020.
Kamaal Williams – One More Time
Multi-instrumentalist Kamaal Williams spins out his contemporary electronic jazz sound from London on this one, which is so tasty.
Tenderlonious – Raga
A piccolo flute led track with heavy eastern vibe, love the underlying fender rhodes and accordion layers, working so well with lead.
Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids – Theme For Cecil
West coast jazz licks for life.
Daniel Avery & Alessandro Cortini – Water
A beautiful ambience created by the end result of one of my fav collabs this year. Dim lit living rooms written all over it.
Prince Fatty – The Model Dub
Enough dub delays and vintage keyboard lines, a perfect sunshine riddim. Makes you wanna put the flip flops on and head to the beach. (maybe not now but surely when all of it opens up post covid)
Natalie Slade – Gimme Your Love
Combining Soul, Jazz, Folk and RnB, Natalie’s timeless vocals dazzle out on this single gimme ya love, Broken beats and cool keyboard motifs in a perfect mix.
Khruangbin – Time (You & I)
So funky and fresh, beautiful songwriting. Want to play this and head out for a long drive.
Hania Rani – Home
Beautiful harmonies of piano accompanying a beautiful voice with a dash of electronics.
Robot Koch – Liquid
Beautiful string section accompanied a mighty drum kit, plinks and plonks of electronics, this one is a soul stirrer of a orchestra.
Heidenreich – Die Wand – Industrial-Space-Edit
Bleepy synths with a late nite electro vibe on this one on Berlin’s finest imprints – Nein records. Head bobbing guaranteed.
Both the releases traverse Indian and Electronic inspirations and really come together in a special journey. Volume 2 has some very very special edits by Todh Teri, Madboy and Spryk.
