Footprints 19 - Original Jazz Compositions

genre - jazz, mix
release date - 2011

The mix lasts 27 minutes. The names enlisted below are probably well-known among the fans of the music encompassing brass instruments as you can see some real jazz legends in here, with the exception of Mattia Cigalini, a young and promising Italian saxophonist born in 1989. I’d say he’s worth keeping an eye on. Do not get misleaded by the list: the dates given are those of reeditions.
'I’ve just moved to Warsaw and I thought I need a soundtrack reflecting what surrounds me now. There are no boom-pow-experimental jazz tracks in this particular mix, it’s rather one of those you can listen to while exploring countless streets, nooks and crannies of a big city on an autumn evening, hence Warsaw’s Palace of Culture and Science on the cover created by Mr. Jayes' - Master's Voice.

Nocow - Ruins Tape

label - gimme5
genre - dubstep
release date - 2011

Once again, Gimme5 takes you further than humanly tolerated, squeezing through your ears the magnificent unknown still sleeping in your brain. With this 'beat tape' release from Nocow, the listener is yet one step deeper, not only into the music, but into the process itself that brings life to it. These short songs are a glimpse into Nocow's vision of the world, a brief sigh through the immensity of the 'possibles', snatched from some underlying world and compiled inside this tape which, by the way, is free. Yes, you heard well. This is so totally free that you have no excuse not to get it and prepare yourself for Nocow's debut LP soon to come.

T-Woc - Jetstar

genre - abstract hip-hop, dubstep
release date - 2011

So we live in the future these days, a time of plentiful digital bounty to make up for the shortfall in the real world. All recorded music is just a few clicks away if you know where to look. It's easy to be overwhelmed as a listener, and as a producer and DJ, the more pies you have fingers in, the harder it is to define your sound. It's an issue that t-woc has certainly had to deal with. A ultra-diverse DJ, Reggae selectah par excellence, helmsman of the alphabet set electronica collective, Hip-Hop fanatic, one of Ireland's original dubsteppers and fan of many other things weird and wonderful in music.
