The late lounge…

Just wanted to tell you quickly about a couple of things that, strictly speaking, missed the boat…

Daylomar Here Under EP Act NaturalFirst up, there’s the Here Under EP from Daylomar, which comes on Bromley-based Act Natural Records. The promo for this landed earlier in the week and I stupidly promised a review without checking the release date… then once I’d downloaded the tracks I realised it actually came out in mid-December. So I’m late, but I did promise, and it is rather good, with five tracks of deep, chunky, bass-driven house music with a dubwise slant to see you through the early hours in style…
More info here.

Secondly, I wanted to introduce y’all to Nightcap Records. They’re a young label based in TIWWD’s hometown of Bristol, and main man Henry Badge recently sent me across some Soundcloud links to check out. After I said I was feeling a couple of the tracks in particular, he then very kindly fired WAVs across. Again, these are out already but I should really have made it clearer that stuff needs to be sent ahead of release… plus, y’know, they’re local and you’ve gotta support those in your own backyard! So if contemporary bass house grooves are your thing, do check out Friend Within’s The Label – a sound palette redolent of early jungle, but with house beats – and Philip George’s garage-leaning Wish You Were Here, an M1-tastic nugget which I can best describe by saying if Brummie bassline house circa ten years ago had ever had a ‘deep’ side, it might’ve sounded like this! Check out their website for more info and a free download of the latter track.
