Audio Texture Radio Show – April 7, 2014

So Jesse Futerman‘s album is about to drop and is full of nice soulful beats and even a bit of house but the super soulful, jazzy “It’s Over” is the winner for us and kicked off this weeks show. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – March 31, 2014

We like a good cover version at Audio Texture but very few deliver, unlike the killer version of “Crazy” by Trio Valore, just about to drop on Record Kicks and sure to be making some waves over the summer if their is any justice. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – March 10, 2014

A trio of quirky yet soulful electronic tunes got the show off to a fine start this week, kicking off with the wobbly, largely instrumental strains of Mr. Mitch closely followed by the vaguely disturbing vibes of James Ferraro before the slow burner, “Vapore” from Palmistry paved the way for the twisted UK hip hop of Strange U‘s ode to Africa.

Audio Texture Radio Show – March 3, 2014

So dreamy, wobbly and soulful sort of sums up this weeks show with the liquid sounds of the Lone remix of Illum Sphere’s, “Embryonic” setting the tone nicely. Read more…

Soul, dub madness, hip hop and Brazil

Soul, dub madness, hip hop and Brazil dominate this weeks show kicking off with a track from the excellent debut album from Gabriel Garzon-Montana which has been on repeat all week and is highly recommended. Hollie Cook then took the soul and gave it a Prince Fatty riddim, look out for her new album coming on Mr. Bongo later this year. We couldn’t resist playing the kookly little dub from the new Kalbata & Mixmonster single which led into the crazy dub techno vibes of Martijn Comes, closely followed by the analogue dub vibes of “Robert Rental” a taster from Ekoplekz‘s excellent album coming in March on Planet Mu.

Audio Texture Radio Show – February 17, 2014

A nice mish mash of styles this week which all seemed to segue together quite pleasingly kicking off with some sunshine jazz funk vibes from Brazil, courtesy of MUV before Aisha Mars supplied some deep, instrumental, soul music from the great Bamalovesoul compiled On Deck 2 from the BBE crew, a great little collection of fresh nu-soul flavours, mostly from artists I’ve never heard of, which makes it even better. Blludd Relations then dubbed up the Owiny Sigoma Band to good effect which led nicely into Jameszoo‘s unrecognisable remix of the great Awanto 3‘s Afro house banger, “Su What? which we previewed on last weeks show.

Audio Texture Radio Show – February 10, 2014

Xtrngr from the excellent Mad Hop Bandcamp compilation got the show rolling in atmospheric style before “Secret Garden” from Snow Ghosts, a curve ball, from the normally club orientated Houndstooth label, kept the dreamy vibe but added some lovely vocals and paved the way for more of the same from the very talented Otti Albietz, fresh on BBE Records.

Audio Texture Radio Show – February 3, 2014

Another week, too much to do and not enough time so here is the unlinked tracklisting. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – January 27, 2014

Another deep jazz cut from Yatha Bhuta Jazz Combo then stirred the show from its slumber and paved the way fro Titts‘ chopped and screwed bassline vibes, which led nicely into some submerged soul from Actress, closely followed by quality beats from Barcelona based Fitzroy North, snagged from his soon to come EP on Tiburoni.

Audio Texture Radio Show – January 13, 2014

So the radio show is back for 2014 after a bit of a hard drive meltdown near the end of last year and just the fact that, well, sometimes a  break is sometimes welcome. The show kicked off on a nice jazz tip with a killer version of The Jackson Sisters’ “I Believe in Miracles” from Eddie Roberts which took the original in a great new direction as a good cover version should do. Pugs Atomz the dropped some great funky hip hop vibes from their great new, stylistically diverse album, Bama Pi. Andrew Ashong then kept things simple but soulfully effective with “Special” before Zara McFarlane waded in with another killer cover version, this time of Junior Murvin’s (not Dennis Brown’s – as erroneously stated in the show in a moment of madness) “Police and Thieves” she really is a talent and a half.

Audio Texture Radio Show – November 18, 2013

So all about the jazz to kick off the show with the fierce sounds of Jaimeo Brown closely followed by the sweeter tones of rising vocal star Zara McFarlane with some help from Leron Thomas which bodes very well for her forthcoming album on Brownswood. Read more…

Audio Texture 14.11.13

Trippy soul from New Zealand kicked off this weeks proceedings with the quirky delights of Connan Mockasin before the leftfield soul vibes of Jitwam ran nicely into the post punk funk of The Jellies. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – November 4, 2013

Audio Texture Radio Show – October 21, 2013

A nice soulful selection in a roundabout sort of way this week, a week when Boards of Canada have been releasing their back catalogue for all those slow on the draw the first time around. The new Om Unit album on Civil Music is a pleasant surprise with it’s pleasing musicality and some nice vocal touches, ably demonstrated by “The Road” featuring Charlie Dark. Some future hip hop then followed from Thriftworks and a track we plucked from the excellent new Project Mooncircle compilation showcasing artists new and old before The Poets of Rhythm reminded the show of their soul credentials.
