M.I.A. introduces “Born Free,” the first offering from her self-titled new record, out 7/13 on N.E.E.T / XL / Interscope. This aggressive, punk-inspired single is the backdrop to a Romain Gavras-directed short film of the same name. No punches are pulled in “Born Free” the song or film, two scathing indictments of The System. Middle fingers in the air, blood in the alleyways, M.I.A proudly presents “Born Free.”

Kahuun’s Drunken Sailor EP [Bagpak Music] kicks off with the title track, where Kahuun’s signature dancefloor jazz-swing-break vibe comes complete with scattered drums, buzzin’ bassline and the sultry vocals of Sofia Rubina. “Carbon Aid” is a funk-fuelled midtempo number with an uplifting rhythm – watch out for the jazz-inflected break in the 2nd half of the choon. The EP takes a turn with the Pandemix Dub version of “Carbon Aid” with its massive, dark bassline that resolves into a nicely crafted 4-on-the-floor tune. And Kahuun wraps it up with “Flying Pigs,” an uplifting house number with a catchy riff, heavy drums and thick bassline.

April 14th, 2010

Known as the singer of French jazz combo Metropolitan Jazz Affair, the main singer in The Dynamics, and for his collaborations with Boozoo Bajou and Mr President, Mr Day releases his first solo album, Small Fry. In this digital DJ promo, “Tears of Joy” sounds like The Who playing an hommage to Smokey Robinson. “Small Fry” evokes classic soul music, from Curtis Mayfield to Motown, and Northern Soul to West Coast. Bassist and producer of the record, Patchworks gives the title track a punchier beat, sending it straight to boogie land. “Both Sides,” an infectious folk ballad along the lines of Nick Drake and John Martyn is a beautiful finish to a wondrous album – a record full of pure soul music, from suave to edgy and raw, but always with the elegance Mr Day carries so uniquely.
