Take a listen to these tracks from a couple of upcoming releases made here recently.
On November 8th True Panther Sounds will release the King Krule EP.

DRC Music 31.07.11

It’s the first post on here for a while since on top of taking some holidays I’m also just back from a week in Kinshasha in The Democratic Republic of Congo where alongside other producers including Kwes, Actress, Richard Russell, T.E.E.D, Jneiro Jarel, Dan The Automator, and with the amazing local musicians and instruments, we made an album in 7 days.

Such an amazing experience… feels quite unreal somehow…

Damon Albarn organised the DRC Music project alongside Oxfam who have been running a tumblr which will be posting photos and clips from the trip...


El Guincho / Fresh Touch 20.06.11

Last summer we made this dub of El Guincho’s ‘Bombay’ in studio B. It sat on the shelf for a little while but since there’s something exciting about to happen with this mix (more on that soon) and with the Fresh Touch EP due out shortly we thought we’d throw this out there. More on Fresh Touch here. Enjoy!

Tuesday 17.05.11

Last week Giggs paid a visit so we could mix a track that was recorded here a little while back with Jeremih. VBS came to film an interview with him and get some studio footage which I’m told it will appear on their Noisey site soon…

Also since last time we’ve had, amongst others, Zoo Kid, Cerebral Ballzy, and members of The Horrors in the booth. Thankfully I’ve got my camera back now so I can document these kind of things a bit better from now on.

Yesterday Acyde and I went through a lot...


Odd Future Studio Takeover 4.05.11

This morning Tyler, Syd, Hodgy, and Left Brain left London for Brussels. For the last few days they have all been VERY busy in the studio. See a clip of Tyler making a beat here from his ustream on saturday night.

And it went on. I’m counting over 20 near-finished beats made here from scratch.
