Portformat – Entropy

null

Entropy is a measure of uncertainty leading to a lower level of information. The eighteen stories of love and life featured on Portformat’s new album aim for exactly that, asking you to listen closer to your instincts and follow your dreams.

Elegantly combining R&B, hip hop and electronics, the dream world of ‘Entropy’ takes the listener on a mysterious trip towards inner space. Fellow dream chasers on this space ride include TDR vocalists such as Alicia Renee, Amalia, Colonel Red, Dudley Perkins, Eagle Nebula, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Stan Smith and other very special guests. So buckle up and get ready to explore the entropy with us!

Anthony Valadez – Just Visiting

null

Anthony Valadez grew up in the bustling cultural hub of the San Fernando Valley, right outside of Los Angeles. By junior high, young Anthony was tuning into KCRW where he was particularly drawn to a show where Michael Mixxin Moor was combining political speeches by the like of Malcolm X with acid jazz instrumentals. By the mid-2000’s Anthony was becoming a staple of the musical scene in Los Angeles with regular gigs at the Temple Bar and an eclectic radio show at California State University Northridge where his guests were up and coming stars like Sa-Ra, Blu, Exile and Aloe Blacc.

When he was living in an apartment complex with Flying Lotus as his neighbor, an organic collaborative environment led to the budding young Brainfeeder-to-be to give a bit of insight into what turned out to be Anthony Valadez’ first release, “Go!” a 7” released by Recordbreakin’ in 2006. Always ambitious, Anthony was not satisfied with just looping and triggering sounds. Eventually, he sought to collaborate with real musicians and produce in the fullest sense of the word. This was the genesis of Just Visiting, his debut album on Plug Research. Over the course of the past three years, Anthony has collaborated with musicians, from other continents, other cities and other area codes of Los Angeles, to create an album that is as diverse as any of his radio shows. Sometimes musicians would come over to his apartment after gigs, record and crash on his couch. Other times he’d be getting Pro Tools files sent over from Amsterdam that he would then arrange and chop-up on his MPC. “I feel like each song is different but the common denominator is that it has soul,” explains Anthony. “I feel like this is a soul record in so many different directions, from soul jazz to weirdo soul.”

Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie – Wasser EP

null

Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie are a duo that the Soulection crew has been in tune with for years now. We figured that it would only make sense for us to reach out and collaborate on an EP. With so many beat makers in existence out there in the world, Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie stood out to us because their style and approach to making music is so diverse within every single track. The element that stands out most in their production is that every single track that they create has an average of 2-3 segments or breakdowns that create a new sound direction and vibe. It’s not so much that they are the first ones to ever do it, but they are one of the first ones to do it right and consistently. With that said, despite this EP consisting of 4 tracks, there is really 7-8 tracks total within due to their signature style of implementing multiple tracks within one.

Wasser means ‘Water’ in English. The reality is that everybody needs water, water is nature, water is real, it’s fresh and peaceful. All the tracks within this EP are very chill. We both love nature and this is where we find much of our inspiration. We worked on every track more than 6 hours, we sat together in the studio and drank Water, cause we’re both straight edge. We just live and want to spread love and nature.”
-Jazzo & Melodisinfonie

Hawthorne Headhunters – Myriad of Now

null

In search of some new, Black Spade migrated out west to soak up the vibrant Southern California vibes and promptly met producer Proh Mic at the famed Do-Over. The two hit it off and began toying with music, soon bringing I,Ced, another St. Louis expat in LA, into the fold. The collective was taking shape and drew their moniker from ‘Ced’s residence in Hawthorne, California. The St. Louis natives reached out to their old comrade Coultrain and he eventually moved out to LA as well. A jam session at the HVW8 Gallery solidified the group’s identity and the creative relationship with it’s owner resulted in an eponymous EP in 2009. Made up of songs done with no intention of release, the EP was the first physical manifestation of Hawthorne Headhunters on HVW8 Records in 2009.

The creative process of the newly formed group was very natural. Members of the group liken the approach to that of old Jazz musicians; organic and instinctual, drawing from whatever influences they were feeling and writing about whatever was on their mind. ; They began plotting a full length record, but Proh Mic and Ced decided to pursue solo endeavors instead of focusing on the group and ‘Train and Spade became the official torch-bearers of Hawthorne Headhunters. The duo went in the studio and Myriad of Now was recorded, a 14-track collection of Funk, Electro, R and more that speaks on spirituality, sexuality and everything in between. Carrying on the lineage of Black music dating back to the Blues and the inception of Jazz, Hawthorne Headhunters melt influences together to break new ground.

Jameszoo – Guanyn Psittacines

null

Jameszoo is a 20 year old Dutch producer named Mitchel van Dinther. This 10” called ‘’Guanyin Psittacines’’ serves as an introduction to that album. It contains 4 instrumentals of which the inspiration was drawn from the like of Hermeto Pascaol, documentaries on nature and his parrot Roberto. The recordings float somewhere in the realm between spiritual Jazz and modern Electronic music. Special additions to this E.P. come from the 2 pianists Wiboud Burkens and Gideon van Gelder, both known for their releases on Kindred Spirits. ‘Guanyin Psittacines’ is Jameszoo’s first E.P. and sure to be not the last one. It serves as a perfect introduction of what’s coming up later this year: a full album featuring guest performances by long-time Brazilian heroes such as ‘Arthur Verocai’ and ‘Carlos Dafé’. Experience this perfect mixture between naturalistic sounds and contemporary experimental beat making !
