Really nice cross section of tracks - have playlisted Rhythmatic Train Behaviour and Distant Call so they'll get played on the AIR FM show in the next weeks.
(Black Athena – Various Greece/Athens)
Thanks for this one. I like the mixture of street beats and blippy music here.
(Nico De Ceglia - Codex + various venues/Radio 1/Rivmixx.com/TheHospitalclub.com – Various UK)
Luvin' it !!!! Playin/chartin and lookin 4ward 2 da album !!! Reeeeeeespect..
(Simbad –Plastic People/Raw Fusion - Various London)
Yeh im likin this- been playing roccin on the radio and distant call. solid productions.
(Martyn Flyn – FineArt/LuckyMe/The Blessings – Various Scotland)
Very Prefuse 73 sounding experimental some cool moments here..Like Distant Call or Puppies best.. Pretty experimental to play out cold use radio etc..
(Freddy Fresh – Various Worlwide)
It's well made and does what all good wonky records should, but right now I'm kind of cold to all the music that sounds like this. It's great for people who want to play the freshest of this scene, but to me isn't that ground breaking or new. That said there are some nice textures and I am sure fans or purists of this sound will enjoy it. Good luck!
(Domu – Sonar Circle/Deviation/1Xtra – Various UK)
'This is cool. It sounds a lot like it was made in the last 12 months but is not derivative of the sound that is so popular just now. A good release that will get some plays for sure. Most likely radio or warm
up stuff mind you but plays none the less.
(Boom Monk Ben - Solid Steel / Mixed Bizness – Various UK)
Is it me, or is everything off kilter at the mo'. Hating out of the way, i like this, as it still has that groove in there...maybe i'm just getting old, but i still like that head nod factor. I'll be keeping an eye out for these guys.
(James Barrie – Global Souljah/BBE – Various Worldwide)
Cool samples spotted some bay city action in there..... Anyway... liking the tracks rockin on the radio for me.
(Craig Harrop – Yo Mofo – Various Sheffield)
Very interesting productions indeed...good stuff.
(A La Fu- VaVa/Big Dada Records/Sub Club, Glasgow/Various worldwide)
I spy with my little eye something beginning with Van Morrison. Or maybe I'm lying. Or mistaken. Either way, it doesn't matter so much because apart from the synth hook little else caught my attention.
That was also potentially a lie. Thefirst thing that caught my ear was the awkward beat."
(Brett Booth – MTV Sticky – Various UK)
6/10 Nothing groundbreacking but decent nonetheless.
(Dj Valis – Various Berlin)
Good leftfield tackle...good stuff, will support.
(Paddy Freeform – Universal Vibe/Herbal/Big Chill – Various UK)
Like this stuff, wierded out hip hop on the glitchy tip. Puppies and Rhythmatic train behaviour are the best out of these three. Bizarre vocal sample on puppies.
(One Deck Pete of One Deck & Popular- Steroid Abuse, Steroid in Stereo, Vibe Ba – Various UK)
A nice vibe but nothing really bit me in the arse on here, liked 'distant call' best.
(Danny Delta – Substance/Headshell – Various Europe)
Definitely music for smokey evening...All the tracks are heavy but Distant Call steals it for me, pure twisted filth.
(Rob Pollinate - SQUARED°/Pollinate Records/The Dogstar - Various London)
Like it but not playing it.
(Rob Smith – Smith & Mighty – Various Worldwide)
Like this a lot. Hugely current with some nice twists. 7/10
(Ross Wakefield-Part Time Heroes/All Over/Hideout Sessions Podcast – Various UK)
These tracks are OK but none of them truly excite. Generally they’re on the slow, slightly uninteresting and noodly/glitchy side of things for me, only Roccin on your radio is of any interest and even this one tails off towards the end. Ah well...
(Joe Downie – Hoxton Music Hall – Various London)
Yep really into this label,. & definitely feeling these guys, all tracks are strong.
(David Spencely – Root Elevation/Sir Vinyl - Various UK)
Rhythmatic Train Behaviour - Love this! Played it on my last radio show. Sounds like they've used a bit of Al Green's vox. Nice ruff production. great guitar licks. Roccin On Your Radio - Good amount of squelch and wobble on this one. Not too keen on the vocal sample though. Puppies - Nice heavy sub on this. Great spoken word samples. Funny ending. Distant Call - Super disjointed beats & samples on this. Can't imagine many dancers getting up to this. I like their style. Loved the remix on the Eklektic2sides vol3. looking forward to hearing more.
(Bootsy - For The Love/ My House your house – Various UK)
Hot producers, I’ve been on them since the Beatnick 12”s. Wicked.
(Oli Marlow – Fabric/Matter Radio/Various – UK)
Roccin On Your Radio is some fly shit. Thank you.
(Jamie Vex’d – Planet Mu/Various – Worldwide)
After days of endless noisy remixes AYK comes correct with good stuff. 1000 Names is wicked, full support from the Pirates on this one. Distant Call and Puppies are my favourites. This is the futures bump that we are getting down too.
(Patchwork Pirates – Fabric/Cargo/Dazed & Confused/Various – Worldwide)
Both tracks "Rhythmatic Train Behaviour" &"Puppies" are nice.
"Rhythmatic Train Behaviour" is bluesy and funky and Puppies is jazzy hip hop will be fit in japan.
(Toshio Matsuura – RBMA/UFO/Various – Japan)
Because playin with fingers and the head is what kids do the best, 1000names just show us with that album; that playin music is a game and that u can have fun with it, and keep a serious awesome style
with! Big up to the tough guys from the mountains!
(Fulgeance - Musique Large/All City/One Handed/Nerdbeat - France)
I've been playing "Rhythmatic Train Behaviour" for nearly a year... HUGE tune!! Also loving "Distant Call" - both are on next week's show. Really looking forward to hearing the LP.
(Simon - www.basic-soul.co.uk/Various
Absolutely love this new stuff from 1000 names. Everyone thinks they can make stupid fresh messy beats these days but 1000 names show us what its all about - having a great time with sounds and not worrying wot u call it. funky, fun and fresh, these guys are never far from my ipod or record box. bulgaria rox in the 09.
(Mr Beatnick – shhhhh/Altered Vibes/Various – UK)
Yes bruv, feeling this, on a first listen Distant Call & Rhythmatic Train Behavour coming up trumps, really getting into this kinda thing. You heard of Stevo? And Onra from France? Similar kinda steez
(Disorda – Suspect Packages/333/Various – UK)
Big! Definitely my kind of choons. Love how they blend detroit hiphop and detroit house on “Rhythmatic Train Behaviour”. Almost Moodymannish. Big up for this one!
(DJ Asparagus - Raw Fusion/GAMM – Sweden)
Nice, definitely up for stocking this in the shop.
(Nicole – Soul Jazz/Vibe Bar/Various – UK)
Really nice stuff!!! Me likes 1000 names.
(Kid Kanevil – First Word/Various – UK)
Yeah think i liked puppies and distant call like the different feel
(Rob ‘Stereo Mc's’ Birch – Old Queens Head/Fabric – Worldwide)
Roccin on your radio' is the better cut. Not killer but defo good
enough for radio/club warm-up play.
(Duke Etienne – Heads High/Various – UK)
Yeah, full support on this. Will be supporting. Plays on Roundhouse radio.
(Dave Gamble – Roundhouse Radio/Various – Camden)
A head nodders delight....9/10
(Mike Stukes - Mystic Vybes WHCR 90.3 FM/Various – US)
This 2 guys are making a cool "beat music". This record is really wonky and i luv dat. Eklektik is a
