Clap! Clap!’s music is a unique blend of global dance and timeless sounds drawing from nature, traditional music, field recordings, and the electronic savvy of modern centres like Chicago and London. At its core are the inspiration of everyday life, what Crisci calls “the search for new flavours,” and a unifying narrative approach. The results are albums that play out like sonic movies. 2014's Tayi Bebba was a soundtrack tour of an imaginary island, and 2016's A Thousand Skies told the story of a young girl's journey through the stars.
Following these albums, Crisci took a break from focusing on samples and composition to study sound dynamics and the science of mixing and engineering. He changed his studio and tools, putting more emphasis on the correct melding of analog and digital technology. His third album, Liquid Portraits, is a result of this process with a new compositional approach that puts a stronger focus on field recording and sound design to achieve clarity without diminishing the energy and enthusiasm of the music. As the name hints at, the album is a collection of sonic paintings, an attempt at capturing furtive, subconscious memories through sound. The tracks reference trips Crisci took and people he met – from southern Italy to Hokkaido via the Kif Mountains of Morocco – as well as more abstract ideas of loss, calmness, and childhood. Helped by a small cast of close collaborators – harpist Kety Fusco, singer Martha Da'ro, percussionist Domenico Candellori, and bassist Piero Spitilli – Liquid Portraits is a major new step in Crisci's evolution as an artist.

Saul is a new duo composed of Barney Whittaker (Footshooter) and Jack Stephenson-Oliver (Vels Trio / Poppy Ajudha / Charlotte dos Santos)
The band, having debuted at Brainchild Festival in 2018, have spent the last couple of years working on material for this stunning debut EP.
Featuring friends and frequent collaborators Brother Portrait (Steam Down) and Poppy Ajudha, the 6 track EP simmers with a potent UK energy; paying homage to the sounds of Garage, Jungle and Broken Beat all in the context of the new wave of London Jazz - of which all members of this project are key players.
Opening track, ‘No Fuss No Fight’ provides a blissed out, shuffling backdrop to showcase Brother Portrait’s toast to the dance, in which he effortlessly switches from spoken word to fast paced delivery. “oi selector, come save my life - I don’t want no fuss no fight’. At once dothing its cap to Mala’s iconic Anti War Dub whilst taking inspiration from The Street’s observational masterpiece Weak Become Heroes - this is a song with ‘instant classic’ written all over it. Ping Pong is a Kaidi Tatham-esque workout, leading us nicely to standout track Earth Rain feat. breakthrough London Singer Poppy Ajudha. The synergy between Jack on keys and Poppy on Vocals is clear; the two have been playing together for years and combine perfectly on this sun drenched contemporary take on the so called broken-beat style.
All in all, the EP is equally at home in the club as it is in the living room, owing to it’s balance of epicness and musicality. This is undoubtedly a product of London town and couldn’t fit more perfectly with the expansive sound of Rhythm Section INTL.

Content we’d nailed the EP we had a few TPs pressed; sending them out to a handful of influential DJs and promoters from back in the day. I remember being in a club and hearing a track that sounded a lot like ‘Release Yourself’, only at a slower tempo. The thing was, the DJ who’d got hold of the TP (sorry can’t remember who?!) was a house DJ. He was playing it at 33 rather than 45. Still sounded good as a House track though!! ‘Time to get Raw’ was the first track written by the original Persons Unknown collective and Time to get Raw (Part 2) expanded on the original; adding some extra layers, time stretched beats and a new arrangement. Dope Jam became a favourite with many who bought the original EP I think because it still had that Old Skool 92/93 feel, but with some of the filtered beats and techniques that artists were experimenting with at the time. Killa is definitely my favourite track from the second EP, you can hear all the elements from the contributing artists in this track. As with the first EP we decided to keep the true identity of the artists a mystery; continuing with Persons Unknown. The original artists from 93 still remain a mystery. Re-engineered, Cleaned Up and Remastered in 2020; bringing the music back to life...

Dan Kye is the mysteriously evoked moniker from multi-instrumentalist, producer, and vocal sensation Jordan Rakei. The New Zealand-born artist - who now resides in London - presents his first long-player from Dan Kye, ‘Small Moments’, on Bradley Zero’s Rhythm Section INTL. An ode to the dancefloor, the musical project was born out of Jordan’s lockdown experience, created from the comfort of his own home. Recorded with just a laptop, extra live instruments and guest musicians, ‘Small Moments’ seamlessly transcends across electronica, jazz and funk, with each genre being effortlessly fused with Jordan’s melancholy vocals. Allowing himself to push the boundaries, Jordan’s Dan Kye moniker draws on the energetic and uplifting elements of house and techno and perfectly mixes it with the sultry vocals and emotion that come with the live elements we know and love from Jordan Rakei. The record offers listeners a journey through more floor-heavy tracks such as ‘Mogeri’ and ‘Raro’ to more groove infused offerings such as ‘Rainbow Road’ (which is named after one of the maps in Mario Kart and inspired by the energy of Prince’s iconic live concert at The Aladdin in Las Vegas), whilst tracks, like ‘Sober’, take on a more lyrical and anthemic feel.

The Limited Series continues with the 9th release on the sub label. BPLS009 presents a 5 track compilation of stripped back and scantily clad drum tracks. 2020 hasn't been the year for clubs so here's something low key. The opening track "Pitch Control" comes from Guava. A subtle composition of percussive tools and well crafted sub bass, further exploring his sound from previous appearances on Holding Hands and Control Freak. LUXE fka DJ Luz, the Manchester based producer and B.L.O.O.M affiliate provides her debut track "Falcon's Rise", a nostalgic remedy with a euphoric vox and scattered jungle drums.
Part two opens up to French producer Pipholp, his second appearance on the label, adding another broken beat, IDM inspired jazzy house entry with "Angers". A sense of patience between moods leaving you in limbo. Monotronique also joins with "Beat Himself" on the B2, a no nonsense bass heavy DJ tool for that specific peak occasion. More danger after his debut appearance on the Black Label Series (BPBL03) last year. In a total mood change, the release comes to a meditative close with "Wide Awake" from Padre Oe. A collaboration between Pete Lazonby, an artist with a long history most known for his chart heading solo production "Sacred Cycles" on Brainiak Records in the 90's, and Otto Fischer, a Nigerian free-improvising singer, lyricist and guitarist best known for his guitar work with the Alexander Hawkins Ensemble. The track also features Henry Lowther on trumpet, widely recognized as one the UK's best, and the strongest contributor to Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden with dozens of top of the pops appearances with a spanning list of important and renowned bands appearing at Ronnie Scott's to Woodstock. The mood is Blue. One Love. BP x

Deekline and Ed Solo’s original ragga jungle anthem ‘Bad Boys’ was released way back in 2012 and was well supported by both DJs and ravers alike. If you stepped into a dance in 2019 you will have almost certainly heard the mysterious dub of ‘Bad Boys’ that was doing the rounds which in turn, has now been revealed at the Ben Snow remix.
It’s almost a crime to plaster Ben with the title of ‘up and coming’ since he’s already had numerous amounts of heat signed to various labels in the scene. Don’t forget he’s also been touring the globe, laying down freshness on the DJ circuit..
The remix of ‘Bad Boys’ obviously retains the original vocals but does away with the bubblin’ bassline made famous by Deekline and Ed Solo and switches it out for numerous offkey, single note riffs. Not to be labeled with the obvious “just another foghorn” comments, this version takes a risk, but it pays off well. You only have to look back to last year to see the amount of damage it’s done on promo!
Keep your eyes on Ben Snow, his roots are still firmly in the jungle.

For this full length album release on Suspect Packages we present to you an unknown Bournemouth based producer known only as Lost Loops, he’s had plenty of material out in other genres of music over the years, namely Drum & Bass, but here and now, it’s all about the dusty Jazz sampling boom bap bangin’ Hip Hop beats.
After receiving a promo copy of this unreleased gem we found ourselves continually pressing play on this magnificent set of tracks that all seemed to flow effortlessly into one an other, oozing 100% quality production. We investigated further and found an artist that isn’t present on any social media platform, aside from Soundcloud, and simply wants to let the music do the talking. Without hesitation, we wanted to be the ones to let the world know about Lost Loops and Respect The Craft.
Predominantly an instrumental affair this 18 track album takes you on a magnificent journey into a jazz, soul, funk and hip hop soundscape with each track lifting the vibes and giving you a feeling of freedom and enlightenment during these strange times. Adding to the flavour come emcees Phoenix Da Icefire, Pupils Of The Clock & Myndd, plus DJ’s Jabbathakut & Twitch.

COEO are back on Toy Tonics! After uninterrupted touring around the globe, followed by a short creative break the guys come back with an even stronger sound. With the new EP they go more underground again. Its addressed to the clubs and night owls out there, who turn night into day and won't stop dancing!
The sound is based on classic house patterns and includes a lot of cool saxophones, big piano stabs & rhythmic piano solos. They even go tribal, use arpeggios and switch into breakbeat heaven. The four Originals are a great next step in the COEO evolution. The unique warm, catchy atmosphere of the tracks can create that special COEO euphoria which made them a lot of fans. From Moodymann to Disclosure, Mall Grab to Kenny Dope, the list is long.
It’s fantastic to see how popular they became over the last couple of years. The last COEO vinyl sold over 2500 copies and some of their tracks have millions of Spotify plays. It’s DJ FOOD. Pure bliss!
