Circulations & Jay Scarlett present: New Worlds (SSS/Guilty Simpson free download)

In posse on 2008/12/03 at 2:37 am



Cutting-edge Japanese label, Circulations, have joined forces with European tastemaker & host of Amp Soul Generation radio show, Jay Scarlett, for the brand new compilation, New Worlds. The project was put together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the HMV Shibuya store – one of the leading retail supporters of quality music in Japan.

To mark the occasion, they’ve gathered new and exclusive tracks from some of the most promising artists of this new beat/future soul generation – including Loose Joints alumni SA-RA and Ras_G, as well as Super Smoky Soul & Guilty Simpson, Quadron (which features Robin Hannibal of Owusu & Hannibal/Boom Clap Bachelors fame), Take, Hudson Mohawke, The Big Payback (Onra & Byron The Aquarius) with Reggie B, and plenty more. And these all come packaged with fresh cover art & design courtesy of Philly-based artist, Joshua Mays, who has also blessed covers for Waajeed (The War LP), Mark de Clive-Lowe (The Politik) & Jneiro Jarel (Three Piece Puzzle US release).

To give you a taste of what to expect from New Worlds, Circulations has blessed us with a free download of the track, “Knockout Kings,” a heavyweight bout between Japanese production trio, Super Smoky Soul and one of Detroit’s finest, Guilty Simpson. The song features Guilty throwing his typical K.O.-blows over SSS’s fresh approach to a familiar sample. The song will be released as both a limited-edition 7″ single, and a remixed 12″ in the coming weeks – so stay tuned for more info on both releases. The New Worlds compilation is out now in Japan and will be on iTunes worldwide soon.

You can also preview two full-length songs on the Fresh Selects site – SA-RA’s kinky quiet storm bounce, “Talk Sex”, as well as selector Jay Scarlett’s “I Can’t Help It” – a club-friendly, broken thump which also features British singer, Leon King.

In posse on 2008/09/30 at 9:56 pm

The Turbo Crunk family (Megasoid, Mofomatronix and Lunice) has been directly responsible for the first appearances in Montreal by the likes of Flying Lotus, edIT and Boretta (Glitch Mob), Machinedrum, Nosaj Thing, Lazer Sword and Ghosts on Tape (as well as many other up and coming / exciting new producers, rappers and soundsytems)… in turn, Turbo Crunk has become one of the key players (and one of the only parties dedicated to bringing these types of sounds) in the international multi-(un)titled genre that music journalists everywhere are in a race to define (we still just call it BEATS).

Turbo Crunk are most proud to announce our favorite current production collective as our contribution to this years Pop Montreal festival : Scotland’s Lucky Me.

“LuckyMe is a collective of beatmakers founded in Scotland. Our family includes Hudson Mohawke, FineArt, Mike Slott, Mr Copy, Rustie, Dema, Nadsroic, Jay P and Dom Sum. In various shapes we have formed groups including Surface Empire, The Blessings and The Heralds of Change. As well as art direct for choice record labels, Circulations in Tokyo and All City in Dublin, we also have a hand in the Scottish streetwear company Oddities. Every blue moon you can find us running one-off parties in tunnels, fall-out shelters, vegan bars or woods but our monthly club night is called THE BALLER$ 5OCIAL CLUB at Glasgow School of Art, where you can find LuckyMe live alongside guests from across the world”
