Polyrhythmics - Live From the Banana Stand


Polyrhythmics - Live From the Banana Stand 

label: Banana Stand Media 
released: 22 April 2014 
style: afro funk beat soul instrumental 
format: 320kbps mp3, FLAC,.... 

Six unshakable deep-funk burners from the Polyrhythmics band out of Seattle! The album is a live set that the band recorded at the Banana Stand recording space in Portland, OR (which is also the label responsible for the album’s digital release). The LP is an absolute winner from jump, as the band opens the set with the rousing afro-beat piece “Labrador“. The group’s funky horn section take center stage on this one, but the band’s strong rhythm section keeps the groove airtight and extra funky. Other stand out cuts include the blaxploitation-esque vibes of “The Octogon“; the 70’s cop flick stomp of “Le Hustle“; and the hazy psyche-music sounds of the track “The Mendo Mulcher“. Long time fans and new listeners who are always on the look out for heavy funk music should really enjoy Live from the Banana Stand as the Polyrhythmics definitely give up the funk from start to finish. 

tracklist: 
1. Labrador 05:42 
2. Le Hustle 06:19 
3. Chingador 07:11 
4. The Octagon 07:14 
5. The Mendo Mulcher 06:03 
6. El Fuego 07:07

Persian Empire - Safe Often


Persian Empire - Safe Often 

label: Cosmonostro 
released: 19 November 2013 
style: instrumental 2step bass electronic 
format: 320kbps mp3, FLAC,.... 

Persian Empire is a young producer that has definitely tapped into a good vein with his ‘Safe Often EP.’ Through organizing layers of found sounds, stacking them with haunting piano, and smearing on some ghostly shifted vocals Persian Empire has definitely begun to carve himself a unique niche. With a sound quite reminiscent of James Blake and Mount Kimbie we are sure this young producer will see some success in the future.

1. Rare Bird 02:27 
2. Safe Often 02:02 
3. Lemonade 01:56 
4. BA03 03:29
