With so much good music coming through thick and fast, it’s easy for new music to drop online and go unnoticed. To help prevent this, we’ve picked five records you don’t want to sleep on. Stream music from The Fawbak Experiment, Siya Makuzeni, Deborah Jordon, Marcus D and Chongo. If you like what you hear, support the artist.
The Fawbak Experiment – The Third Space EP
“From the very first notes, the music is quietly immersive, takes you until another space, time and life’s feeling. As a little fruit on a planet, contemplating the immensity of a galactic road built from billions of stars, a so impressive combination of infinity, dark and cold light.”
Siya Makuzeni – Out Of This World
“Siya Makuzeni is well known for her extensive musical range ,vocal dexterity ,experimental creativity, her passion for symbiotic cross – genre influences; and her band Siya Makuzeni Sextet present the amalgamation and embodiment of Makuzeni’s skills as a solo artist.”
Deborah Jordan – The Limehouse Session EP
“Imagine going into a beautiful studio with your favourite musicians and collaborators for a few hours, without rehearsals, to record live, one take interpretations of select songs from your back catalogue. This is exactly what Deborah has done and the results are beautifully deep, heartfelt and intimate thanks to the magical energy and musical mastery of Marc Rapson, Mr Mensah and Laurie Lowe.”
Marcus D – Pink Lemonade
“Marcus D is from Seattle and currently resides in Tokyo where he hangs out at arcades and runs his record label, Absolutzero.”
Chongo -Arcturian Soul
After grabbing our interest with his Orefu EP a few weeks back, William’Nu Jazz’ Doran returns with a new EP. The 6 track EP under the guise of Chongo delivers broken beat grooves, warm Latin touches backed with some seriously deep, jazzy vibes. Check him out and support.
