New Latitudes session. After the amazing Sylvester Anfang II Cd, it's now Haxan cloak's turn to deliver. The track on soundcloud sounds really promising.

I discovered Yo! MTV Raps in 1990 or 1991, I was 10 at the time I believe. it was almost the end of MTV Raps. Nevertheless I feel really lucky, 'cause thanks to Dre, ed Lover and Fab Five Freddy I discovered the hip hop culture and a lot of amazing artists. I only knew De La Soul back in 1989 because Ring Ring had also been a huge hit in Europe. (Ok, I knew MC Hammer as well, but my knowledge of hip hop had been rather limited until then).

This LP definitely isn't an easy listen, but it's a really rewarding one if you take the time to go through it thoroughly.
Press text from Twitch:
Originally released in 1985 in an edition of 500 copies, this is the first time this album has been available on vinyl for nearly 30 years. Peter Zummo (born 1948) is an American composer and musician. He plays the trombone, valve trombone, euphonium, synthesizer, other electronic instruments, and also sings. He is associated with the postminimalist and Downtown aesthetics, and he describes his music as "minimalism plus a whole lot more." "I first discovered Peter Zummo when I first discovered Arthur Russell. I kept hearing THAT trombone sound throughout Arthur's music and through scanning through various label credits made the connection that this Peter Zummo character was a constant collaborator with Arthur. Zummo's trombone sound is one of those things that if I am feeling anxious or pissed off will instantly soothe me and make everything feel alright. So, as well as wanting to hear everything Arthur had touched, I now also wanted to hear everything Mr. Zummo had created too. It's worth bearing in mind that at this point, in the mid to late 90s, there was almost zero information online about Arthur or his music or his collaborators. The upside of this was that all his records weren't too hard to track down and weren't going for crazy money. I randomly found 'Zummo With An X' in New York around 1999 and wasn't sure what to expect. I instantly liked the first side, 'Lateral Pass' but side 2's 'Song IV' took my breath away and remains to this day one of my most listened to records. Despite the minimal elements, I hear more in it every time I listen to it, and sometimes the perfect interaction between cello, trombone and percussion sounds like the voice of Arthur being beamed in from the aether. It is 20 minutes of sheer bliss that feels as if it could go on for twice as long. Unavailable on vinyl since 1985, it's a great honour to be making this record available again and I can't imagine anyone with even a passing interest in Peter Zummo or Arthur Russell's music failing to be beguiled by this." – Twitch.

The First Lady of discotexas (member of the discotexas live band I believe) just released her first EP called Curly Mess.
What you can expect here are 3 tasty slices of sunny electro funk with Da Chicks rappin' as icing on the cake. If you enjoyed the raps on the Souljazz records' Big Apple Rappin' compilation or more recently Parallel Dance Ensemble, you will definitely like this
Curly Mess is already available on BEATPORT.
(Itunes, Juno Download, Traxsource, Amazon: June 15)
