Myriad Of Now

CD (Item 607666) HVW8/Plug Research, 2012 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.90 1

Electro funk, boogie soul and spacey hip hop from Hawthorne Headhunters – completely delivering on the promising earlier EP and rivaling the best of their similarly-traveling peers – particularly Plug Research labelmate Shafiq Husayn, along with leftfield leaders Dam Funk and Georgia Anne Muldrow – and we do not take those comparisons lightly! The Hawthorne Headhunters started as more of a freewheeling collective, though here as more of a partnership between Coultrain and Black Spade. 70s jazz funk, 80s synth soul and otherwise spacey sounds and the insistent underlying bounce of the best hip hop continue to inform the sound. Titles include "Sum People Don't Change", "Collage" feat Rockwell Knuckles & Tef Po, "Luv Galactic" feat I Am, "Teleport", "Yellow Cougar", "Whirlwind", "Ghostfields", "Fairweather" feat Von Pea & Haz Solo, "Hole In The World", "Tribute" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bonobo at a creative peak – on the North Borders tour, recorded live at The Roundhouse in London! The North Borders album was a real testament to Bonobo's depth, and in a post millenium world where a solitary producer can make a bedroom studio-recorded record sound big, we really need to tip ... CD

DFA, 2014. New Copy

Jack Trax/P-Vine (Japan), 1988. New Copy 2 CDs

Music For Adverts
Freestyle (UK), 2014. New Copy
Lack Of Afro are back, and fiercer than ever before – really evolved from just a name known for funky remixes and dancefloor grooves, and stepping forward strongly into a much more well-rounded, deeply soulful group! The title's a reference to older Brit sound library albums, but the overall ... CD
