Toshio Matsuura Group - L. M. II (Official Animation)

ANIMATION BY TOSHIO MATSUURA GROUP x KENICHIRO MIZUNO x KAZUYA KITAOKA On ‘LOVEPLAYDANCE’, legendary Tokyo DJ and producer Toshio Matsuura charts a new direction. Casting musical cornerstones in a fresh light, the TOSHIO MATSUURA GROUP features Tom Skinner (drummer for Sons of Kemet and Owiny Sigoma Band amongst others) as its musical director, as well as some of the UK’s most exciting jazz-influenced musicians. Drawing on years of surveying and curating different corners of music, Matsuura deftly combines this talented pool of players into one singular, wide-ranging album. A co-founder of Japan’s United Future Organisation (aka U.F.O.), this new record sees Matsuura reconnect with longstanding friend and collaborator Gilles Peterson. Releasing the album via Brownswood Recordings in the UK, it’s a continuation of a relationship which started as a bridge between London’s then-blossoming jazz scene and Tokyo’s new musical vanguard of the early ‘90s. This album continues that two-way dialogue between Japan and the UK.

Acid Arab - Gul l’Abi (feat. A-WA) [Music Video]

A video clip project that expresses the mergence of diverse cultures and comprehensions by prioritizing aesthetic concerns. Influenced by the eastern culture, the project suggests a new “new world” concept, that is called “Neuland”.

Trio Da Kali & Kronos Quartet - Tita (Official Music Video)

TOUR DATES - Trio Da Kali & Kronos Quartet: 17th June - Holland Festival - 14th July - Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn - 'Tita' is the third single taken from the debut album 'Ladilikan' by Trio Da Kali & Kronos Quartet. Out now: ttps:// 'Tita' was one of a series of songs that emerged around the time of independence in Mali and Guinea, encouraging the youth to follow their hearts, rather than their elders’ wishes. In this version, the leaders of this movement are the griots themselves, who have ‘fallen in love with love’ – even if it leads to malicious gossip and beatings. The word tita and titawati represented the swish of cloth as a couple danced in ballroom style - a true sign of modernity in Mali of the 1950s!

Maquiagem: Livia Tavares Produção: ELXVA, FurmigaDub e Lajedo Estúdio. Em “Raggatmosférico”, seu videoclipe de estreia , o multi-instrumentista nos transporta ao inconsciente de uma jovem menina que ilustra, através imagens embaralhadas e corrompidas, o cotidiano do Vale do Anhangabaú, do comércio frenético da 25 de março e da cultura popular brasileira em um resgate de memórias recentes do hipocampo no ‘cérebro-ciberespaço’. Uma viagem desalinhada desse universo paralelo virtual. O clipe celebra a parceria entre o músico e o estúdio de criação ELXVA, responsável pela direção.

Uji - Jenga (Official Video)

Taken from Uji's forthcoming album 'Alborada' - out 8th June. Pre-order now: Uji (Luis Maurette) is a nomadic electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised throughout Latin America. Half of the pioneering duo “Lulacruza” since its inception in 2005, with whom he has released 5 albums, a feature film and multiple world tours. His music is dance floor bound: rooted in various indigenous traditions while borrowing from the aesthetics and sound design of electronic music. With his new solo project he has already toured extensively around Europe, the US and Latin America even before his debut album has yet to drop. “Jenga” is the first track to be born out of Uji’s solo project. An enticing mixture of sounds from nature (water, frogs, animal panting) blend with a kind of secret vocabulary transcending specific languages merged with contemporary beats. The track seems to cast a spell that transports us to a pre-verbal state reminiscent of tribal cultures, ritual and a sense of being symbiotic with nature as luscious synth sounds draw us into the magnetism of darkness, balancing sophistication with simplicity. Infectious psychedelic rhythm patterns expand and grow in nuances as we surrender to the pristine joy of dance. Uji's debut album Alborada will be released on ZZK Records on June 8, 2018. ______ Directed by Luca Macome Produced by Luis Maurette, Luca Macome, Joaquin Otero Nico - Nicolas Pascual Sofia - Cami Brizzi Ninfa 1 - Clara Tonconogy Ninfa 2 - Delfina Kavulakian Assistant Director - Martin Bielinsky Assistant Director 2 - Poi Brown Production Manager - Tomas Medero Production Assistants - Joaquin Otero, Joaquin Carcavallo, Pablo Benitez DOP & Camera - Sebastián Ferrari Focus Puller - Fernanda Montiliengo Gaffer - Dani Carrizo Electricians - Blas Lafontaine, Joaquín Celiz, Lucas de Araujo e Sa Production Designer - Maragrita Franco Costume Designer - Sofia Blanco Assistant Costume Designer - Lucia Andreacchino Props - Nicolás Matos Makeup - Aldana Capusotto, Aldana Vargas Editor - Mer Crimi Assistant Editor - Manuel de la Rua Color Correction - Sebastián Ferrari Uji Spotify Facebook Instagram Bandcamp Soundcloud ZZK Records Spotify Instagram Twitter Facebook Bandcamp SoundCloud Merch
