Downtempo Electronica & Jazzy Beats featuring Bonobo

On tonight's edition of After Hours we'll be checking out Migration, the new album by UK-based DJ/Producer Bonobo (AKA Simon Green). Green says Migration was inspired by “the study of people and spaces... It’s interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and affect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of places evolve.” 

We'll also hear some great jazzy beats and abstract hip hop from 2016 courtesy of some amazing record labels from all around the world, featuring: Chillhop Records (Amsterdam), Tour De Manège (Montreal), DirtyBeauty (Germany), Millennium Jazz Music (London) and more! Listen to the re-broadcast Wednesday, Jan. 25th 12:00am CST right here on KRUU radio.

 

On today's edition of Music is My Medication I'm prescribing you a heavy dose of brass and beats from 2016. On the brass side of things we've got Hackney Colliery BandMoon Hooch and Stomptown Brass. Then on the beats are Super Magic HatsEngelwood x Jeff Kaale and Will Magid & Alligator Spacewalk

Stream it live August 9th, 5pm-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.

New Breakbeats, Chillstep & Ambient Electronica

I've got a real chill playlist set up for tonight's edition of The After Hours. We'll start out with some beautiful jazz post-rock from the Serbian quartet EYOT and the amazing album they released last year: Similarity. After that we've got some new chilled-out electronica featuring three albums that just came out in the last month, plus three albums that slipped under my radar last year. Read more about the artists & albums below:

 

UK-based producer Kamal Manzar aka zarr. Last month he released his debut album: A Wandering Clarity, where he takes the listener on a beautifully introspective journey through some ambient and cinematic electronica.

 


 

Russian bassist and producer Anton aka LTF Last month he released his debut album: Light The Fuse, a throwback to the old school hip-hop production style of the 90's. Expect jazzy bass, funky horns and dope beats.

 

 

 

Oakland-based producer an-ten-nae. Earlier this week he released his second studio album: Transmissionswhere he returns with some more delicious chillstep filled with soulful vocals and worldly rhythms.
