Sam Bradshaw Afrobeat given a 4-4 makeover really hypnotic and compulsive. Improves the more you hear it and the vinyl release is the only way to really seek out the best of the subtle nuances in the tracks. Favorite track: Wish.

First radio play from Gilles Peterson on BBC 6 Music.

Shapes Of Rhythm launches its new label with a collaborative release from its two founders, Tom Central and BodyMoves. Dual Thought is a collection of beats and syncopations, weaving a dusty patchwork of samples around contemporary beats.

Starting with a pile of LPs and a classic home studio set-up, the EP was created by a handful of jam sessions between the two artists featuring turntables, laptops, a couple of synths and a NI Maschine.

Textura opens the EP with a swinging hip hop beat, afro atmospheres and rhythms with a sprinkle of the LA beat sound. One For Crates is also hip hop but this time melodic, instrumental and is an ode to the Brixton beats night Crates. BodyMoves flies solo for Wish, with a 90 bpm beat-driven soul cut with its feet firmly in Brasil. It’s the spiritual follow up to This Is Gabor’s House from the 2015 debut North Spaulding EP on Keep Up! Records. Himba closes the EP with Afro-centric grooves with plenty of percussion and bass.

Gilles Peterson gave the EP its radio debut, playing Himba on BBC Radio 6 Music.

Mixed by Will LV
Mastered by Frank Merritt at The Carvery.
