Profusion – Where do I begin?

Label: First Word Records

We’ve been waiting for the full LP from Emeson & K15 for a long time, knowing that the music was ready and the only thing missing was the right label to put it out. The wait is not totally over, but thanks to First Word Records, we have a taste of what’s to come, and it’s delightful, to say the least!

Via First Word “Sun-soaked synths drift across the warmest of basslines and neck-snapping beats. Emeson’s rich vocals gracefully ride atop of K15’s delectably bruk twist on neo-soul sonics, this is seriously classy contemporary London soul music.”

Miles Bonny – Miister Man

Label: Bastard Jazz

This track, in homage of Prince, appeared a year ago on Miles Bonny Soundcloud profile (We played it in the Fresh Taste #35 mix). In the pile of tracks honoring this legend music that came out right after is death, this was definitely one of my favorite. You can now grab that on wax with this 7″ official release.

Via Bastard Jazz ” “Miister Man” goes for the jugular with a low slung drum break, a deep synth bassline, Miles signature understated funky vocal growls and horn injections.”

Children Of Zeus – I Can’t Wait / Don’t Say A Word

Label: First Word Records

They had one of the best single of 2016, and now they’re back with an equally dope 45. The B side is a gem! Visit the bandcamp page to buy the 7″ vinyl and listen to the excellent extended version of “I Can’t Wait”.

Via First Word “‘I Can’t Wait’ eases us in on a slow and low 70bpm bump. Hashtag baby making music. Seriously, there needs to be some sort of health warning before playing. Consider this your warning. This is grown folk shit. Classic slow jam material. The flip side ‘Don’t Say A Word’ is on some heavyweight 90bpm boom bap business. Certified dancefloor fire, cementing the duo’s status as some of the UK’s dopest talent out there right now.”
