Various Artists “VARY01” (Vary Records)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Contemporary soul and hip hop from Al Dobson Jr, Strange U, Hubert Daviz and more, showcasing the tastes of Leipzig’s VARY label on their very first release. It’s all about variation and mutation under that theme, cutting from Al Dobson Jr’s warm, woozy beatdown piece Best Wishes at the record’s front, to the chunky electro of Esgar’s Yo! by the end, taking in old skool UK dad-hop from Strange U, house pleasantries from Tito Wun, and some jazzy breakbeat hustle by Salomo in between.  

VARY01 is out now – buy from Piccadilly Records or  Boomkat
