This week: hot digital cumbia from Bunbepe, disembodied dubtech from Capricorn Productions and futuristic jazz from Beautiful Swimmers & Don Cherry


Let the sunshine in! oh. it’s raining now. Fuck it, I got my shades on & I’m feeling fruity. Just like my shades make me instantly feel stoned without having to put clipper to rizla, this sort of digital cumbia makes me instantly feel the late afternoon sun on my face, several mojitos down and several more still to come. Great selection here finishing on a tango note, heralding the impending night…

Capricorn Productions

If Bunbepe’s mix was early evening sunshine, right here is twelve hours later and I’m not totally clear on what’s happened in the mean time but it doesn’t matter because I’m blissfully bathing in the moment courtesy of this latest ambientdubtech immersion from Capricorn.

Beautiful Swimmers / Don Cherry

Man, did I just get schooled. Somehow Don Cherry is not someone who has ever turned up on my radar and I just spent the last hour having my mind blown. There’s crazy simulated whalesong played on brass, Shpongle-grade global psychedlic soundscapes (of course predating Shpongle by a good couple of decades), Italo Disco (Tullio Di Piscopo – Stop Bajon – unbelievable tune) and loads of other stuff which you could put into categories now but which was just intended as Jazz…
