The Sunday Slow Jam is back, not that it ever really went away. This week we have J.Rawls featuring Wordsworth. J.Rawls is a producer with a back catalogue that spans the likes of Blackstar, Beastie Boys, and Slum Village. ‘Inhale, Exhale’ is a soulful track from his 2005 album ‘The Essence Of Soul’. ‘The Essence of Soul was a follow up to his critically acclaimed album ‘The Essence of J.Rawls’ and as the name suggests, takes on a more soulful approach. Check it out…

Nas vs Massive Attack I hear you say? Yup, Tim Goldsworthy has re-arranged Nas‘ track ‘The Don‘ against Massive attack. The out come? a chilled, eerie, low key affair with plenty still going for it. I will always love the original of The Don as the beat is crazy, but this is a well flipped edit non the less, and looks as if it’s got Nas‘ approval. Check it out…

Juno ‘One to Watch’ Chamboché is a house producer and DJ based in London. He is also a promoter and resident at upstart Nottingham house and techno night Zleep.
His 2009 debut 12″ EP ‘Ipso Facto’ was the first release for Jiscomusic offshoot ‘Under The Shade’ and with the help of a genre-defining remix of ‘Feverish’ from The Revenge, secured pick of the week at Piccadilly Records and topped the sales charts at Phonica and Juno for several weeks. The success of this release culminated in it being featured in Tim Sweeney’s best of 2009 chart on Beats In Space and subsequently paved the way for several more EP’s on ‘Under The Shade’, which collectively garnered support from such varied artists as Ewan Pearson, Steve Bug, Amé, Tensnake, Horsemeat Disco, Jacques Renault, and Mugwump.
As a DJ, Sam williams aka Chamboché, brings a diverse taste of disco, house, techno as well as more bass-driven sounds. He’s played alongside DJs as varied as Andrew Weatherall, Jamie Jones, Erol Alkan, Shonky and James Holden, as well as at party’s across the UK and Europe.
With new music out on vinyl-only imprint TUSK Wax and ‘Under The Shade’ among others, as well the imminent launch of a new label, Chamboché is certainly worth keeping an eye on.
Here we have a new track from the man himself, ‘swatch’ is currently not signed to a label and is looking for a home. It showcases the sound Chamboché has come to develop over the years and is the perfect mix of subtleties. From its oddly satisfying groove to the sounds that slowly emerge, sitting perfectly somewhere between disco, funk, and deep house.
Dusky are back with the Henry 85 EP on Simple Records. It was released last week and can be purchased here. The ‘Henry 85 EP’ contains two originals and one remix from FCL. Henry 85 is the clear winner in my opinion, though both tracks hold Dusky’s ‘sound’, ‘Henry 85′ has a far better groove and soul to it. The FCL remix is pretty decent too, definitely one to buy in its entirety.
This weeks Sunday slow jam is so smooth, it may as well be a well polished chat up line in the form of ‘What’s the difference between a Ferrari and a Hard-on? … I don’t have a Ferrari’. Bad chat up lines a side, everyone seems to either be at Sonar this weekend getting all tan everything, or at Lovebox getting smashed out their faces, and boy do we enjoy our booze. So without promoting drink driving, here’s Royce Da 5’9 with ‘Something 2 Ride 2′.

Label boss Luca Lozano returns to Klasse Recordings for his third solo release ‘B.O.N.E.S’, following on from the success of the ‘Out of Step’ EP Mr. Lozano serves up three original tracks for your listening pleasure. The B.O.N.E.S EP was put together during a three month sabbatical, one in which Luca took time off from DJing, travelling and concentrated only on music production and the finalization of his debut album. The EP on Klasse is a much welcomed result of his experimentation and increased studio-time over that period.

Not sure how I missed Azealia Banks track ’1991′. It was probably my hatred of hearing a Lazy Jay’s track from a couple of years ago being rehashed with some annoying lyrics all over it.
Anyway, 212 is a rant for another time, and this is neither the time nor the place. With ’1991′ I can’t help but feel that Miss Banks sounds a bit like Missy Elliot, which is never a bad thing, but Missy does Missy. Where she does come good however, is refreshing the bridge between rap and house music (not the horrible big room chart house that Guetta and Afrojack pump out) that used to be much more apparent back in the late 80′s/early 90′s.
So if we minus the hype, is there any real place for Azealia Banks right now? Well luckily she is decent live and has good stage presence, but needs a couple of years to develop into something that holds more stability than the hype train. Pick up the full 4 track EP here.
