There has been a big commotion around the Kolour LTD camp on this, the eve of largest release to date. The forthcoming, 3 x 12″ LP entitled “Tale Of 2 Cities” is a special package with an exceptionally curated A-list of contributors from the deep-disco scene which includes such luminaries as Eddie C, Frank Booker and Sleazy McQueen… plus fresh faces such as Vincenzo De Bull & Halve Soul, Napoleon and LeBlanc.

Here, we debut LeBlanc’s offering with the bittersweet and supremely funky, “We Can Fly.” A filtered, Rhodes piano sample sets the tone… topped off with a hefty bassline, and hazy vocal snippets, we sail along at 35,000 feet before plunging head first in to break-laden, funk territory. The ominous clarinet riffs and acid flourishes call in the b-boys to take over the dance floor for a pair of extended “get down’s.” Ace tackle right here!


Following the release of his Moods EP back in May, Heroic Recordings starlet Dooqu is teaming up with vocalist Ashdown for his next single titled “Dust.”

“I really do believe Ashdown and I have managed to bring out the best elements from each of our skillsets,” Dooqu said when asked about his newest release and it’s clear to hear why he thinks so. The two have teamed up in the past and the effortless ebb and flow between top line and instrumental throughout “Dust” speak volumes of an innate chemistry between the two talents. Heroic Recordings has a knack for discovering promising, eclectic talent and Dooqu looks to be an artist worthy of the Swedish imprint’s endorsement.

Yet another Australian export that has been causing a stir across the scene with his work, the 19-year old Australian Just A Gent has amassed upwards of an eye-popping 45 million streams worldwide.

I’ve added quite a bit to that count this week after hearing “Rolling Dice,” one of the many stellar tracks released on the young Aussie’s The Stories To Tell EP, out now via Lokal Legend and Casablanca AUS. The 8-track EP also features stand-out tracks like “Loaded” and my personal favorite, “Sounds of her Mind.” The production is sophisticated, the vocals provide the perfect topline, and there’s an understated stylistic versatility throughout the EP – an impressive result achieved from two years of relentless creating and the drive to a make something that would stand the test of time.
