Larry Gus – The Blue Flowers (Between Blue and Blue)

I started writing about that new Larry Gus track forthcoming on DFA Records, but I somehow lost my temper over the stupid genre-descriptions on Discogs while doing some research. Well, you should listen to it anyway, but in the meantime I’ve come his latest mixtapes in which he plays 54 beats from the one and only Madlib. Just what I needed to cool down and get ready for the weekend. Comes as a free download, too!

Larry Gus – Silent Congas

Here’s another one I’ve been sleeping on, and it’s maybe a bit of a surprise to see this coming from New York’s DFA Records. Surprise because for the most part Larry Gus doesn’t sound like anything that ever came out on the label. Sure, there’s a disco beat here and there reminiscent of Liquid Liquid and the likes, but for the most part the record reminded me of James Pants, sometimes of Jonti. Certainly worth checking out, especially since it’s a free download. That said, let me also mention Larry did an exclusive mix for Dummy Mag.
