Somni
Home

Nice background story for Leo Shulman aka Somni as he swapped Hampshire for L.A as a child and spent his teenage years soaking up the music of his new country. Initially this was the more guitar orientated liked of Elliot Smith and Cat Power but subsequently he immersed himself in the soul and hip-hop of the likes of Flying Lotus and J. Dilla. You can hear all these influences in this album of intimate home-fi songwriting as Shulman returns to the music that excited him as a kid.

santpoort
the art of being empty

the art of being empty is the debut studio album from Dutch-born, Melbourne-based bedroom artist Julien Mier, who records under the moniker santpoort. Constructed through meticulous beats and Mier’s psychedelic and slightly twee vocals, his first effort is one for getting deliciously lost inside.

Shlohmo
Bad Vibes

Bad Vibes was the debut release from West Coast producer Shlohmo (aka Henry Laufer). He has gone on to be a respected producer visual artist and clothes designer but here is where it all started. It showcased a laid back form of lo-fi hip-hop production that saw him compared with the likes of Flying Lotus as a purveyor of innovative vibey production. Friends of Friends who issued it back in the day present this 2020 issue of what has become an album of much influence in the intervening years.

Groundislava
Groundislava

Groundislava, from the same corner of town as DEEJ and Schlomo, surfed in on the wave of mainstream acceptance of nerddom in general and chiptune in particular. His self-titled debut ducked the radar on its release, but became a cult classic over time and is now finally up for rerelease. The upbeat 8-bit songs still hold strong and make for a great retro time-piece.

M.O.O.N.
Clinically Blasé

Whilst its tasty selection of rhythms and groove's are firmly rooted in a retro glut of dancefloor-ready genre's, M.O.O.N's blend amounts to a much more forward thinking method. On this occasion, Clinically Blase is a 10-track slice of synth-heavy and jazz-chord-fuelled expedition.
