Lamont Kohner : Beckons [K3]

“It’s finally Summertime, but press play, close your eyes and you’d never be able to tell. Lamont Kohner‘s third single for RP lands with a roomy bass pulse and a dusty loop that slowly splits open to reveal white noise-crusted dub chords and a thumping traincar rhythm. BECKONS does what it says on the tin, with minimal side effects, drawing us into the seedy nightlife of Kohner’s noir cityscapes and neon vapors. Following the irresistible groove of BECKONS is CLOSE IT, a slightly more traditional dub techno affair, recalling the Detroit strains of Deepchord and Echospace while also conjuring a thick-as-a-brick rhythmic foundation that goes even further back to the first couple Maurizio 12″s in Germany. The whole thing congeals into that trademark Kohner shuffle, and we’re once again sitting back in a darkened taxi, window half open, smoke wafting out into the greasy streets. Falling beneath the music’s spell, you feel compelled to close the window – we’re doing something intimate in here.”

Land of Fires : Petrichor [self-released]

“The first song on the album, Space, is a good place to start as it kicks everything off with large swatches of time and simple, delicate, and fleeting melodies that give each line room to breath, which then build into powerful and heavy sections. The second track, Petrichor, is a 22 min epic that is, in essence, the polar opposite of Space as it uses variations on harmonic motifs throughout it that build a compelling narrative of an approaching storm.”

Timezone LaFontaine : Sunfaded [BSOG0083]

“Are you ready for some incredible new music? Today we’ve got the new album by North Carolina MC and producer Timezone LaFontaine with a little help by incredible collaborators… C-Doc, Camo, Cheese N Pot-C, Donnie Ozone, Seed Verb, Sloe-T & Zaia!

Imagine if you will, it’s the hottest day of the summer and you’re driving in a car with no AC, with the windows rolled down and listening to this music. The first song begins at dawn, when it’s already hot. Each subsequent song proceeds through the day, as it gets hotter and hotter under the unrelenting sun. Finally at the end of the album it’s late afternoon/early evening and the temperature is just starting to slightly cool down. That’s the setting… the album’s Sunfaded. Drive… bump loud… enjoy.”
