Snippet from the SoS Mixcast for June 2015. Airing shortly on https://www.signalsofsound.com
Exile – Only If
From a Moving Shadow white label, Picked up in 2003. I snapped up as many of these as I could in my 20’s. Only if is unlike most of the other tracks on the EP, a jazzy roller featuring a great bit of cowbell percussion, some improvised sax and a nice little jazz man loop.
Utah Jazz – Quincy
A Utah Jazz classic and up for free download >>> https://soundcloud.com/utahjazzmusic/utah-jazz-quincy-free-download. Quincy is a fiery piece of Jazzy Drum and Bass, packed full of energy on the break, featuring a playful organ sound and a bassline that warps it all up perfectly
Bachelors of Science – Words feat Audio Angel
This blitz of a track, begs to be danced to. Some wonderfully restrained vocal pitch shifting and a ripper of bassline.

In the first snippet from the May Signals of Sound mixcast we take a section from the latter part of the mix which offers some contrast as it transitions in style from dark scientific to Soul drenched. Including new tracks from Sunchase and Digital this is one to get your ears on.
Sunchase – Thing (Hospital)
One of four exceptional pieces from the, Sunchase – Truths EP. Thing is a deep lowkey piece featuring some nice vocal pitch shifting creating a cheeky impish vibe.

Digital, Audio Habitat & Mad Vibes – Maintain (Dispatch)
On the B side of Digitals – Red Alert release on Dispatch. This collab has some wonderful low-fi work on this and a classic Dub drenched baseline meant this was a must have purchase – Dispatch are having a cracking time at the moment on their limited releases. Grab whilst you can.

Paul SG & Tayla – Destination Unknown
From the Paul SG back catalogue. Whilst investigating the recent Jazzassins work ‘The Chalet’ I did a bit of digging around in the Paul SG achieves. Destination Unknown is a sublime little roller, pacey and hypnotic packed with jazz and soul hits.
Utah Jazz – In the Mix
Digging through the stack for a convient move, it was clearly time for some Utah Jazz so on went this frantic roller from the early 2000’s. Quite a strong bassline on this piece deserves more airtime 😉
Hope you all enjoy – the full mix will come shorty.
