Van Brownswood Recordings tot zijn laatste electronische uitstapje Breach; Ben Westbeech is goed bezig geweest de afgelopen jaren. Westbeech komt uit Bristol maar woont inmiddels alweer enige tijd in Londe

n. Hij is getraind als vocalist en cellist en werd in 2007 ontdekt door Gilles Peterson (de man achter Brownswood Recordings en bekend van BBC Radio 1). De laatste producties die ik van Ben heb gehoord waren onder de moniker Breach. In de dubstepscene en aangrenzende genres komt het aanstekelijke Fatherless nog regelmatig voorbij, maar inmiddels is Ben weer druk bezig geweest met een nieuw album.
En wat voor een! There’s More To Life Than This is een echte nu-jazz meets houseplaat maar dan wel met het soulrandje zoals we van Ben gewend zijn. Hij staat hier inmiddels al een week of 3 op repeat op kantoor dus het werd echt even tijd dit pareltje met jullie te delen.

Bovenstaande track ‘Butterflies’ brengt het (na)zomerse gevoel een beetje terug en is ook meteen een van mijn favoriete tracks tijdens deze winterse dagen. Op dit album ook veel samenwerkingen met andere artiesten en ondanks de mooie vocalen en goede producties zijn er ook wel een paar minpunten te benoemen op There’s More To Life Than This. Zo valt het nummer ‘Same thing’ met Chocolate Puma voor mij een beetje uit de toon. Chocolate Puma kennen we nog wel van deze en ik had daarom ook gehoopt op een iets sexier nummer. Ook ‘The Book’ is geen uitschieter, al roept het wel een beetje het Jamiroquai gevoel op. Het iets ingetogener ‘Stronger’ met Midland is daarentegen heerlijk en tijdens het intro krijg ik zelfs even een flashback naar Seal. Niet de kleinste namen om iemand mee te vergelijken, maar belangrijker is dat Ben Westbeech vooral een heel sterk eigen geluid neerzet. Het blijft toegankelijke house muziek die voor sommigen misschien iets te afgewerkt klinkt. Weinig vernieuwing maar wel verrassend veel soul. Daardoor luistert het album lekker weg en blijf ik hem nog wel een paar keer op repeat zetten.

Woensdag 3 maart is het weer zover: de kick-off van het festival 5daysoff in Paradiso en Melkweg Amsterdam. Deze eerste dag typeert zich door een aantal bijzondere artiesten: Flying Lotus, Four Tet (live), Bibio, Nosaj Thing, Floating Points, Martyn, Cinnaman, Sandeman en de winnaar van de DJBroadcast mixtape wedstrijd.

Nu hebben we op diaryofcool al eerder gesproken over Four Tet, Martyn en Bibio, maar aan Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing en Floating Points was ik zelf†nog niet toegekomen. Flying Lotus (coverfoto door nikanika.com in Trouw Amsterdam tijdens Viral Radio) had eigenlijk al een eigen post verdiend, aangezien deze man al een aantal jaren bezig is en zich kenmerkt door veelzijdigheid. Hij combineert hiphop met electronische muziek en remixt en produceert voor artiesten in verschillende genres. Tributes voor J Dilla tot†samenwerkingen met Gonja Sufi.†Dit jaar komt er een nieuwe release van zijn hand uit op het WARP label: Cosmogramma. De eerste gelekte track Computer Face/Pure Being

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=il78kyjCDkc[/youtube]

Van zijn laatste album Los Angeles†de fijne track GNG BNG

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2An07_b5jEA[/youtube]

en een gouwe ouwe: Tea Leaf Dancers

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCXjL_0Ww9E[/youtube]

Nosaj Thing en Floating Points zijn onder dezelfde noemer als Four Tet en Bibio te scharen maar identificeren zichzelf wel weer met een duidelijk ander geluid. Nosaj Thing: electronische soundscapes, vaak lieflijk en†melodisch†

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQOViWlIQoc[/youtube]

Floating Points omschrijven is ook weer een klus maar het komt neer op: opgefunkte techno,†deephouse, een randje dubstep†en een vleugje†triphop

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eex5l6ePE7c[/youtube]

Na die eerste dag hebben we nog niet genoeg natuurlijk. Donderdag is er MF DOOM, een briljante hiphopproducer en natuurlijk de dikke dubstep avond Oi! met zowel grote namen als Rusko en Joker, alsook de nieuwe producers van eigen bodem: Presk en Astroposer die beiden erg goed aan de weg timmeren.

‘Presk’ †foto: Rosa Maria Koolhoven / Nikanika.com

Presk is laatst al bij de legendarische (en zojuist opnieuw awardwinnende) radioshow van Mary Anne Hobbs op BBC Radio 1†gedraaid met een zeer eigenzinnige ‘rework’ van Kris Kross’ grote hit Jump. Is dat dan wel dubstep? Nee, maar als je vrolijk wordt van de namen van dag 1 ga je dit ook zeker diggen. En Astroposer heeft een speciaal mixje gemaakt voor het DUBieus collectief waar hij deel van uitmaakt, luister ‘em hier†voor je verse portie glitchy IDM originaliteit.

Naast dit alles is er op vrijdag een lekkere minimal/techno avond in de Melkweg en zaterdag en zondag nog meer muzikaal geweld in beide poppodia. Kijk voor de volledige programmering hier.

Olive Oil, Japanse beatproducer: hiphop met veel† jazzsamples

In Japan is ie al een tijdje bekend, maar de rest van de wereld gaat hem hopelijk ook spoedig ontdekken wanneer Space in Space op 22 februari op Mule Musiq wordt gereleased. Dit is het derde album dat Olive Oil zelf uitbrengt, maar de†eerste hiphop release van het label. Al is zijn stijl beter te vatten in woorden als broken beats, trippy, jazzy. Hij wordt vergeleken met producers als Flying Lotus en Prefuse 73, maar heeft een duidelijk eigen geluid.†Space in Space†is een dubbelaar en als je alvast meer wilt horen van†mister Oilworks dan onderstaand, check dan†zijn Myspace.† Vind je†het albumdesign en zijn clips†tof? Die komen van Popyoil : ‘het broertje van’.

Meer Japanners / van dit op Mule Musiq? Check ook even Righteous. Al is deze laatste niet erg actief meer aan zijn Myspace profiel te zien. Hier zou je†Olive Oil†al van kunnen kennen (want gedraaid tijdens Gilles Peterson’s show op BBC Radio, daar kom ik nog een keer op terug):

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOUdM94czk8[/youtube]

En hier word je hiphoppig Japans blij van toch? ^^

Wat me weer deed denken aan de eerste ontmoeting die ik had met Japanse hiphop. Verbreed je horizon zeg maar.

Onder deze noemers is de Finse producer wonend in Berlijn bekend, die ik even onder de aandacht wil brengen. Vladislav Delay (Sasu Ripatti) heeft geŽxperimenteerd met ambient, broken beat, glitch en daarnaast ook grooves en†house. Dat laatste past hij voornamelijk toe in†sideprojects en remixes, want zijn passie is het experimenteren met geluiden en ritmes om uiteindelijk muziek te maken die nog nooit eerder is gehoord. Dit jaar is het album Tuuma (betekenis: ‘inch’) uitgekomen op het label Leaf. De essentiŽle basis van dit album†vormen de door Ripatti zelf ingespeelde percussiestukken,†waarover de Argentijnse Lucio Capece†vervolgens improviseerde met clarinet†en saxofoon.†Craig Armstrong†leverde daarnaast een bijdrage van solistische painostukken voor het project.†Met deze ingrediŽnten is Ripatti aan het componeren en arrangeren gegaan met als resultaat een heel bijzonder album.

Toive (Wens), een track die heel langzaam aanzwelt en de bijbehorende videoclip:

Op 3 december staat ie in Amsterdam met Moritz von Oswald Trio live (hijzelf, Moritz von Oswald en† Max Loderbauer). Dit jaar is er van hen ook een album uitgekomen: Vertical Ascent†en vorig jaar stonden ze ook al in het Bimhuis tijdens Viral Radio†Festival. Onderstaand Pattern 4 van Vertical Ascent:

Oostenrijk staat uiteraard bekend om zijn klassieke grootmeesters, maar ook op electronisch gebied valt hier nog een en ander te ontdekken in de vorm van beatproducer Dorian Concept. When Planets Explode heb ik afgelopen week na veelvuldig luisteren op de iPod ook maar eens aangeschaft op vinyl op de platenbeurs. Invloeden uit jazz, funk, hiphop en techno maar voornamelijk fijne ritmische bliepjes en knerpjes. Mijn†persoonlijke favoriet†van de plaat is Her Marshmallow Secret:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnRNjMPDkdo[/youtube]

Er zit ook een Nederlands tintje aan deze release, want When Planets Explode is uitgebracht op een zusterlabel van Kindred Spirits: Nod Navigators. Oliver (Dorian Concept) noemt het label zelf een speeltuin voor experimentele artiesten met een passie voor zowel hiphop als electronica. Naast het feit dat hij inmiddels al door heel Europa, China en AustraliŽ†heeft getourd, is hij ook nog toetsenist bij de experimentele jazz en funk formatie JSBL.

Aankomend weekend is het tijd voor Le Guess Who Festival in Utrecht met een prettige line-up waarbij o.a. deze Oostenrijkse Korg fanaticus acte de presence gaat geven (als je op Youtube zoekt op Ďfooling around on Micro Korgí is de kans groot dat je meneer ook treft namelijk).

Verder is er dit weekend op Le Guess Who ook ruimte voor Bibio: nieuw talent uit de WARP stal.†Deze Engelse producer heeft dit jaar al drie (!) albums gereleased waarvan twee op het WARP label. Hij heeft een geheel eigen melodieuze stijl†(folktronisch, ik kende hem nog niet) en vindt zijn inspiratie in electronische bands als Boards of Canada. Hij heeft dan ook een cover gemaakt van hun nummer Kaini Industries. Luister Ďem hier:
