Representing a wide range of music genres and exploring 'all sounds', is our mission!
Aphty Khea may seem like she belongs in outer space, but her attention is very much focused on Planet Earth. Adopting the persona of a ‘chameleon humanoid’ extraterrestrial who is dismayed to find a planet ‘poisoned by a myopic perspective and destructive world view’ (sounds about right), Aphty Khea adopts the role of a ‘sonic healer’ set to ease the world’s pain and refresh our perspective, with spacious, downtempo compositions that sound like fka Twigs, Banks and Zero 7 being beamed from beyond the moon.
‘Peacebloom’ is one particularly restorative track. Taking its name from Aphty Khea’s spaceship, the mixture of delicate melodies and heavily swung beats is a combo that will soothe the hardest of hearts. Now ‘Peacebloom’ has a new video, following the artist in full space exploration mode, and we’re delighted to exclusively reveal it on MusicMap.
THE MONITORS PREMIERE: Marc Cary & Abstract Black - Number Runners (Tony Minvielle Presents Into Somethin Vol. 2)
Broadcaster, DJ and music journalist Tony Minvielle is a byword for good taste in the British soul and jazz scene, thanks to a career spent DJing at venues and radio stations all over the world and regular contributions to the much-missed Straight, No Chaser magazine. A fraction of that taste was captured by last year’s Into Somethin’ Volume One compilation (a record which reached No. 6 in the iTunes Jazz Chart), and now he’s only gone and put together a follow-up called, you’ve guessed it, Into Somethin’ Volume Two.
Plotting a genre-traversing musical journey through the likes of Kaidi Tatham, Marc Cary, Carolina Araoz and Carmen Lundy is one thing, but Minvielle has gone one further this time by including a couple of exclusive tracks composed especially for the compilation. If that’s got you salivating then prepare for a delicious early appetiser, as we’ve prepared an exclusive first listen to one of them right now.
