Really loving what Cardiff duo Bodhi is up to as of late. After initially catching on to them a few weeks back for their extremely pleasant remix of Charles Murdoch, I’ve been keeping them on the radar and today they’ve given XLR8R a free download of a remix they’ve put together for SBTRKT collaborator, Sampha. It’s another wonderful House tune from the gents, adding in their lightweight synth work with Sampha’s beautiful-as-always vocals laid atop. Stream below and grab the mp3 over on XLR8R. √+
IT’S ANOTHER ROUND OF THE DIRT, HAAAAAAAAAAAAN! A DAY LATE FOR Y’ALLS LONG WEEKEND! *AIRHORN*
In true-to-form fashion, I went a little ham on the R&B influences and remixes… there’s a lot of good stuff circulating right now and whilst still full of summer-driven high serotonin levels I’m basically only listening to stuff that I can sing/rap along to or dance to… or both. There’s a good sprinkling of emotion and a touch of acid just to round it off. Can’t be on one all the time you know. Also I think the median age for the remixers/producers on these tracks is around 20 which means A. I’m getting old and B. college-level guys are way more into Amerie and Ciara (publicly) than I remember.
My good bud Burn Unit really vibing off the British & American producers and vibes, lots of feel-good stuff in his picks from quite a few budding producers.
You can of course download each individual track via Soundcloud but each of us have zipped our selections up for you for easy download purposes. Trust us. – Laura
This song is fucking beautiful. Luke & Olly of the Cardiff-based duo, Bodhi, create a heavenliness with Charles Murdoch‘s “Dekire” that honestly takes me to a fantasy land in my mind that I never want to leave. It’s overflowing with positive vibes, pulling together a very delicate vocal from Oscar Key Sung with a non-intrusive beat. Please download this, you’ll be happy you did. Thanks Future Classic for the freebie.
