‘Another Year’ by Labi Siffre
Picked up the new more-detailed-than-ever Mr Bongo vinyl re-issue of Labi Siffre’s ‘Remember My Song’ LP last week, aside from the heavily sampled ‘I Got The’ and Brit dancefloor funk classic ‘The Vulture’, this is on there - one of my favourite songs ever. #mrbongo #nowplaying #vinyl #chasndave
The second Titeknots single release is here!
"The insatiably hook-driven piano riff is muscled to the forefront, looping over an elegant percussive groove that builds to a melodic climax" Thump (Vice) on "Down The Drain"
24th February 2014 sees the second fresh release from genre mashing house producer Titeknots, with another digital double A-side single “Down The Drain”/”Triangle Tracks” on Tru Thoughts.
"Down The Drain"/"Triangle Tracks" follows massively positive reactions and support for the first single “Mind Open”/”Wordy”, from tastemakers all over the world, including Rob da Bank (BBC Radio 1),Nightmares On Wax (Warp), Sinden, Nemone (BBC 6Music), Gerd, LTJ Bukem, Joe 90 (FutureBoogie), Ben Osborne (Noise of Art), Jason Pulaski (KUCI), Eric Lawrence (KCRW), Dom Servini & Scrimshire (Wah Wah 45s), Eddy Ramich as well as an inclusion in Xposure’s ‘Ones To Watch in 2014’(XFM). This all comes after his superb remix of label mate Harleighblu’s “Love Like This”.
The first tune in this package brings a straight-up unshakable hook and a hypnotic build, with the second showcasing Titeknots’ eccentric slant on deep house as he throws in some cheeky UK bass and garage flavours.
Recent DJing has seen this top-drawer club and festival DJ play a three hour set at Glastonbury, sell out a gig in Amsterdam, support Daedelus, support Bonobo and play at Koko for Tru Thoughts 15th Year Anniversary.
