|➲ Katuchat “Lonely Cloud EP” ★ Label: Moose Records ★ Released 18 January 2015 ★|
“Katuchat has kept his unique Japanese inspiration, mixed it up, twisted it up and it came across even better than anything we’ve previously heard from him. The serenity that comes out of his productions is a sweet pleasure that you don’t ever want to stop.
You will also recognize Katuchat’s trademark beats and rain-filled percussions, but this time it’s in a collab’ with our homeboy Andrea. These guys make you hang in there and wish for more. There’s an old-school / new school touch to it.”

|➲ Kate Carr “Fabulations” ★ Soft Recordings ★ Released 25 December 2014 ★|
“A soundtrack for made up stories set in out of the way places.
‘Fabulations‘ continues exploring our planet and society by trapping sound particles in various countries (Kate Carr is an insatiable globetrotter, and sounds were recorded in : Marseille, Nice, Cefalu, Catania, Dublin, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dungun and Barcelona) with the occasional accompaniment of atmospheric instrumental layers. It is this finely sculpted subtle blend, this goldsmith’s manipulation of sound that Kate the traveler offers us, with the final masterisation by ‘Taylor Deupree’ making this new album timeless, fragile, warm and ultimately essential.”

|➲ Mimm Exploration Compilation ★ Mimm ★ Released 19 December 2014 ★|
“Mimm have drawn from their talented international collective with fresh dubplates from the likes of in-house producers Congi, Philippe Edison, Metske, Saulya, Warren Xclnce, Mos Isley, Pete Beardsworth, H725, Bruises and Melo Zed. As well as having a few select cuts from internationally acclaimed producers who have graced their events over the past years from Lone (R&S), Om Unit (Cosmic Bridge), Quest (Deep Medi), Flako, Submerse (Project Mooncircle) and Kaelin Ellis (Florida).
It’s an eclectic and brave offering with a general sound that leans heavily on ambient and psychedelic hip hop and house, drenched in warm analogue colours, nostalgic samples and soulful melodies, all the while with a keen awareness of more subtle classical compositions. Throughout there’s a distinct flavour of smoked whiskey-bar jazz riffs grounded in a gritty UK, bass-heavy setting and as musical round-ups go, for Mimm, this is definitely a coming of age compilation.”
