Taiwan MC – Catalina (Numa Crew Remix)

#NewMusic from Florence, Italy

Maybe it was the year we spent attempting to learn Italian at school, maybe it’s our insatiable love of low frequencies. Either way, Numa Crew’s spin on the Taiwan MC track ‘Catalina’ is definitely doing the business for us. The snare on this has got more than a hint of Wiley’s trademark snap, but that’s no bad thing. Definitely keep an eye out for this crew when they hit up a dance near you in 2018.

Ago – Why Won’t You

#NewMusic from Florence, Italy

Numa Crew DJ / Producer Ago has dropped a ten tonne dub weight with his latest release ‘Why Don’t You’. Check out a preview of it alongside the two B-sides ‘Flashin’ and ‘Zero Shift’ below.

It’s got that ‘Beezledub’ wobble that Paleman brought us, lashed over an ace dub beat. If that wasn’t quite enough for you, check out the promo mix he did to support the release.

Ago ‘Why Don’t You’ is available to pre-purchase from Innamind Records now. Check out the rest of Numa Crew‘s work on their SoundCloud too.

Alborosie – Strolling

We’re going to go out on a limb and say that Alborosie is probably our favourite Sicilian reggae artist ever… No disrespect meant to anyone else from this southern Italian island who’s flying the reggae flag, but Puppa Albo just owns his sound and continues to bring out heavy reggae rollers. New track “Strolling” is no different.

Teaming up with the apparently ever present Protoje on this mellow little mover, there are horns, a healthy splash of reverb, some pretty out there synth screeches and Alborose’s gravelly vocal delivery. All of this comes up trumps to our ears. One gripe if we may, a fade out!? Come on, it’s not 1985 anymore.
