I’ve decided against writing a review of the Phlash & Friends album, basically because I wouldn’t know how to do it. It’s what everybody would expect a house album from Phil Asher would sound like, and I mean this in a good sense. So, while most of you might have got a copy of it, here’s another chance to listen to somef of the tracks.
Following the radio session with Benji B on the BBC, Gilles Peterson met with Phil in his Brownswood Basement to record his latest podcast. But even if you have heard all of the music before, the interesting side of this are certainly the interview sections. Recommended!
As the album Prismic Valuta Rising might not be released, Dimlite has uploaded some of its tracks to his Myspace page, including the previously featured Kalimba Lifeswamp.
Two videos made the rounds this week, the more prominent being the Suite for Ma Dukes concert on YouTube. The second comes the Bristol soundsystem Wild Bunch and is accompanied by a 72 minutes long mix from 1987 (!), dubbed Wild Bunch vs Soul II Soul (original post on Test Pressing).
The Phlash & Friends album Deep Electronic Sound is now also available as digital download. Note that there are two editions circling around, one on Traxsource and another on Juno, each containing different bonus tracks. Phil Asher has also uploaded a video from last week’s release party.
