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. Read more…

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…

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.

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 15.10.13

So the Forgotten Bird‘s album, “Sahara” is finally out and it’s a lovely thing as this weeks opening track, “Windmills Of Your Mind” clearly shows, do yourself a favour and go and buy it to soundtrack those quieter moments in your life. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – September 30, 2013

Audio Texture Radio Show – July 22, 2013

Nice warm summer vibes in this weeks show on the whole with a taste of Kasket‘s forthcoming EP of jazz beats on Apollo setting the tone, closely followed by some classic jazz from Henry Franklin which has been given a new lease of life and publicity courtesy of the new Snowdog, Black Jazz reissue mission. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – July 15, 2013

So this weeks show veered towards the dark side this week with a few rays of musical sunshine throne in for good measure with Paul White kicking things off with a further taste of his new Watch The Ants EP which should be due sometime very soon. The aptly named Heat Wave then ably displayed his kitchen sink approach to splicing rock, folk and whatever else into listenable new wholes before David Lynch (yes that one) dropped his future blues into the show from his, better than I thought it would be, new album. Tall Black Guy then funked things up with his fresh imagining of one of the most sampled artists of all time.

Album of the week honours go to The-Drum‘s, Contact, it really is a wonderful, multi-stylistic musical collage, stitched together with some fine beats and love for The Art of Noise. Things then got a bit bassline nasty with Commodo kicking things off with his driving, “A $pace Cash” before Alan Johnson got all rude bwoy on us which paved the way nicely into the twisted house sounds of up and coming talent rRoxymore before Alex Barck turned things round with some sweet, Afro soul and Slow Machete compounded the sweeter vibes with their sunshine mish mash, “Vie d’Esperance

South London Ordnance then paired some sweet vocals from Brolin with some nice beats and bass as way of introduction to their new record label, Aery Metals before new project These Hidden Hands waded in with their heavy vibes which led nicely into Roel Funcken‘s madcap beat making. Letherette with some help of a nice Bibio retouch then ended the show in fine style.

Audio Texture is a small, independent music consultancy specializing in putting extraordinary music in the ordinary world.

We love music even more than chocolate & we constantly research, listen to & painstakingly collate what we consider to be the best music in the world. So we thought it would be a nice idea to put out a weekly radio show to spread the word about some of our musical discoveries & support the world of quality, underground music.

We also write a blog giving people the heads up on the show, new releases & things of an interesting, musical nature.

Audio Texture Radio Show – July 6, 2013

All over the shop this week kicking off with East of England based Hoofus and a taste of his peculiar musical madness closely followed by Jameszoo and his chopped, twisted and then retwisted blend of jazz and MPC prowess. Myron & E then provided the traditional soul vibes from their great new album on Stonesthrow before Cavern of Anti-Matter laid down the soundtrack to dystopian future, some would say present. Dirg Gerner then treated us to some of his distinctive vocal beat arrangements to announce the release of his new EP on Eglo and what should be the start of a healthy career. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – June 31, 2013

A quite unrepentently electonic affair this week apart from the lovely folk opening courtesy of Grey Reverend, a little taste of his new material due later in the year. Ken Camden then sent us on a sprawling electronic space odyssey and gave the world a taster of his forthcoming release on Kranky, which we will be checking for sure. We were interested to receive the new Comfort Fit material this week having known him from his more soulful endeavours on Tokyo Dawn but his new stuff on First Word is a bit darker and deeper but none the worse for it. Jaw Jam then dropped some  big beats and bass, big up XLR8 for the freeload before we had to drop a tune from our album of the week from The Child Of Lov which has been on heavy headphone rotation.
