Hyetal – Northwest Passage

It’s no secret that Hyetal is one of my favourite Bristolian producers, his album Broadcast ranked among favourites of 2011. In the meantime, he teamed up with Julio Bashmore to form Velour, but that doesn’t mean there’s no new solo material coming. According to his SoundCloud page, his new single (listen above!) featuring the vocals of Gwilym Gold will be out on April 29 via True Panther Sounds. Took me a second time to fall for it, so don’t judge too quickly!

Arkist – All Good Things

I had my eyes on Arkist ever since his brilliant Apple Pips release came into my life. Rendezvous ended up being my most played track that year, it’s flipside was recently unveiled in a new vocal version.

Anyway, I’m excited about his new track. Seems to be the first in a while that has the potential to end of on 12-inch. There’s no sign of that though, so for now just enjoy the stream.

Arkist – Hotflush Podcast #17

Judging from the number of plays on iTunes, Rendezous by Bristol’s Arkist is already my tune of the year – with nothing else coming close. Needless to say how excited I was to see his guestmix for the Hotflush podcast.

Pangaea – Hex

You might have heard this on this weeks Worldwide show, it a new track from Pangaea dropping on Hemlock next month.

This is quite a darkie, but I like it being reminiscent of some heavy bruk tunes from back in the day. If you’re into something more sinister, you should also check out the flipside called Fatalist. You should be able to pick up HEK013 from good vinyl shops on September 12, 2011.

Arkist – Rendezvous / Fill Your Coffee

For the last three years, I have been calling Apple Pips my favourite label, as they manage not only maintaining a roster of highest standards, but also use a strong visual language on their releases.

Their 15th release is a 12-inch by Bristol man Arkist, who delivers a super deep title track alongside a slowed down funkster on the flip.
