Super suave Manchester band, Delphic, will be releasing their second studio album, Collections, this 28th of January on Polydor Records, just over three years since their acclaimed debut album, Acolyte, was released on the same imprint. Ten tracks make up the new album, including the first single “Baiya,” which I was overjoyed to find out has been remixed by one of my favorite producers of last year, Shadow Child. This should get you weekend-ready. √+
The redhead/househead from Bristol, Julio Bashmore, has been on my radar for a hot second now, mostly because any artist signed to dirtybird automatically makes my ears perk up, but this guy has been banging out some absolutely fantastic house tracks in the past couple years. Just this month, Julio has already released two original tracks on dirtybird’s BASS compilation as well as his ‘Everyone Needs A Theme Tune EP’ on PMR, and now he is currently working on a remix for Delphic, some kind of collaboration/remix with Mary Anne Hobbes, and of course, more choons for the bossman Claude VonStroke over at DB. I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be hearing a fair amount from this guy in 2011. Grab a preview of two of Mr. Bashmore’s tracks below, and make sure to head on over to Beatport and buy EVERYTHING.
