You might remember we did a piece a little while back about Mala’s forthcoming project with Gilles Peterson (DUE OUT SOONLY) and we got a bit excited, WELL, Fact Magazine have just put out a new interview with Gilles Peterson and Mala himself about where the album came from, how they started working together and some bits and bobs about the different styles on the album. Give it a watch above.
The excellent Vanity is giving away his track Early Mornings for free! This is a great little tune with a nice deep vibe to it, rich basses and tight percussion alongside the mellow, Aphex Twin style synths really push this track out there - Grab it above
Q magazine have teamed up with a whole bunch of excellent artists to make what is sounding like an excellent cover CD of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black.’ A year after her death, Amy’s music is still proving to be an inspiration for many new artists, and the fact that names such as the Manic Street Preachers, Temper Trap, The Cribs, Hollie Cook, Swindle and Dry the River providing audio goodness - the proof is in the proverbial CD-shaped pudding.
Grab a copy of the magazine on July 2nd and you’ll be able to get the CD, that is, if somebody hasnt stolen it from the cover before you have you chance to get your hands on it.
