The first official single from Quantic’s freshly announced ‘Magnetica’ album is “Duvidó” featuring Portuguese resident, Angolan born vocalist Pongolove. Premiered by The Guardian, with a stunning video filmed by B+ in Colombia, the vinyl and digital single drops on 17th March ahead of the LP release in May.
At a moment when disco’s biggest claim to fame is the latest transmission from a pair of chic French androids, it’s refreshing to hear a funkier, more visceral strain. The Bay Area-based duo of Myron & E aren’t afraid to sweat for their grooves, as proven in the video for “Do It Do It Disco” with an assist from Finland’s Soul Investigators.
On June 1st, King, the vocal trio from Minnesota began their month long residency at the Bootleg Theatre in Los Angeles. The opening act was a tall, charismatic, and talented young artist named Moses Sumney. Sumney’s music is a tender combination of singer-songwriter soul with a tough and sometimes daring series of vocal loops.
Mochilla productions brings a vintage feel to the brand new music video for @EllisMuzikChild (eldest son of the late great Alton Ellis). The black-and-white finds Chris Ellis pursuing the gorgeous girl of his dreams on a motorscooter. Produced by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, the swinging track features a hot DJ verse from Bay-C of dancehall supergroup TOK—who plays the cab driver driving the runaway girl’s getaway car. Will true love save the day? Will Chris catch up with his lady? There’s only one way to find out.
Madlib, Freddie Gibbs, J Rocc and Egon, have recently wrapped up 2012's Madlib Medicine Show dates in the US, Europe, Russia and Australia, one of which is hazily captured in in this video by Mochilla's Eric Coleman.

Los Miticos Del Ritmo – "Cumbia De Mochilla"
Taken from Los Miticos Del Ritmo – Los Miticos Del Ritmo (Soundway)
From the sweltering tropical depths of Cali, Colombia Will ‘Quantic’ Holland’s studio band Los Miticos Del Ritmo (The Mythics of Rhythm) return with an album of hip shaking, dancefloor quaking instrumental cumbias. Released on CD, LP and download on the 30th April. The LP is 100% analogue and comes with an original screen-printed front cover designed by the London based artist Lewis Heriz.
French-Chilean MC Ana Tijoux takes her song "Volver" to new heights on this video from rated director B+ specifically, above the clouds over Medellin, Colombia (no Escobar jokes please). Which seems to be the natural habitat for her Bahamadia-esque flow on this track; more whispered torch song than rap in the conventional sense.
