Mix Monday: John Eden and Grievous Angel

John Eden and Grievous Angel have done an excellent job of helping me forget the bleak mid winter with this beautiful selection of classic Lovers Rock. John has compiled a selection of his favourite tunes and handed it over to GA for dubs, effects and mastering. The result is an hour of bittersweet Lovers Rock classics overdubbed with spaced out sirens, horns, and whistles. You can read John's note on the mix here and GA's here. With this on the stereo, the curtains closed, and the heating up full, I could almost pretend that it wasn't December in SE17.

New Release: The Phantom EP

Our good friends over at Senseless Records have just dropped this cheeky little bubbler. Having recently put our records from Venezuela and the Caribbean, this, their final record of 2010 sees the label look east. The Phantom aka 23 year old Bartosz Kruczynski hails from Warsaw, Poland and makes unique tropically flecked future bass music; shards of skeletal UK Funky, speaker shaking R&B and deep house devastatingly spliced with glacial synths and deep, deep sub bass.

This, his first EP for Senseless sees three original tracks of completely individual RnB, Classic House, UK Funky mutants backed by hot reworkings by Brenmar, (Wow!), Hackman, and Kruczynski's fellow countryman, Zeppy Zep.

The EP is out next week and you can preorder it here. As a taste you can grab the Zeppy Zep remix of Night Game below:
