That singing bass virtuoso is back, this time taking a leisurely stroll through the neighbourhood with his rather pretty friend. Encountering happy-go-lucky neighbours, the Faceless family, Mr. Horsehead, Mrs. Zombie who ever so kindly offers a steaming plate of her own ish. Obviously it all has to culminate in a laser induced head explosion. Way out there and nothing more than you would expect from extended Fly-Lo fam. Luckily for those in the big smoke he’s playing a gig (16th May) as part of the Tiger Beer Hidden Depths series (get your tickets here), alongside PinBoard favourites Floating Points, Slugabed and Offshore. If you are yet to see the man and his serious, serious band live, it’s a must. The Golden Age Of Apocalypse is out now and trust us, it’s fire.

Our girl Jessie Ware recently headed over to the BBC Radio 1 studios to take some time to explain her influences and inspirations in the form of a minimix for Annie Mac. The likes of Chaka Khan, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Sade and some other classics pop up. The girl definitely knows her music.

In it’s original form ‘Because It’s Wrong’ by Digits (a London based, Canadian born artist) is a glitch heavy, synthesized, bouncy affair not shy of effects or colour. But through the mind of L.A producer Nite Jewel (pictured) it is reshaped into a slowed-down, sexed-up Funk jam with pitched vocals and flirtatious chords.

Funk futurist Kindness has offered a full stream of his new album World, You Need a Change of Mind (March 19th). After dropping a couple gems (‘Gee Up’, ‘SEOD’) over the past few months, he manages to successfully back his palpable buzz with an excellent debut long player. Wonderfully combining low-fi ambiance, with raw unadulterated Funk – it’s gritty and rhythmic in all the right places.

Off the Wall motivated Disco and James Blake style vocals can be heard scattered throughout, while the guitar licks of tracks like ‘Gee Wiz’ will happily appease most Prince & D’Angelo fans.

It’s not easy finding music that genuinely sounds original – but this does. Stream the album in full after the jump…

Since Kindness is doing his damn thing, you funky mothers might want to keep this in mind for that playlist. Brand new single from the Brooklyn disco funk outfit Midnight Magic. Led by Tiffany Roth’s cocaine vocals, there’s more addictive twangings and spacesynth backed up by former Hercules & Love Affair grads Carter Yatusake, Morgan Wiley & W. Andrew Raposo. The video has some fine levels of gluttonous, oddball, self-deprecation aswell. Overall the record feel like, Studio 54 swag meets groovy robots from Tokyo, or something. Asses shall shake.

‘Drop Me A Line’, is now available to buy here.
