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…

Not much to say this week due to a lack of hours in the day, just the tracklisting for this stylistic mish mash of a show: 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.

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 – 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

A mixed bag this week both stylistically and tempo wise and that’s the way it should be really. F.S. Blumm kicked the show off in pastoral style with a taste of his lovely new album about to drop on one of our favourite labels, Pingipung. Read more…

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.

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 23, 2013

Quite an experimental, cosmic sort of vibe going on this week kicking off in lovely melodic style though with Noveller‘s “Bright Clouds Bloom” which led right into the submerged jazz beats of Ahnnu before Submerse waded in with some fine instellar beats from his new Project Mooncircle release. Read more…

Canela En Surco 016 – Dan & Alfonso (Monkey Bar Crew)

Si hubiese que nombrar a un colectivo o marca que ha “cambiado el juego” en lo que a las noches barcelonesas se refiere; sin duda tendríamos que nombrar principamente a The Monkey Bar como los grandes artífices de que haya habido un corrimiento de fuerzas en la escena de club local de los últimos años. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – September 16, 2013

A hazy, laid back selection this week kicking off with long time show favourite, Jono McCleery and his new single “Ballade” closely followed by Demian from the great new Wondercore Island mixtape showcasing a whole host of varied talent from down under. Read more…

Audio Texture Radio Show – September 2, 2013

A largely leftfield electronic selection this week kicking off with more Shigeto because, quite frankly, you can’t have too much of Shigeto‘s new album which is on the headphones and on repeat. Read more…
