Review: Blip Discs surfaced earlier this year with a debut 12" from O'Flynn that got the likes of Gilles Peterson and Bradley Zero all hot under the collar. The tropically minded label is back with a second release and its founder Tom Blip is responsible for the cuts which will resonate with any fans of Afro percussive work outs. Lead track "Wrong Guaco" is the epitome of relentless, basically one extended conga workout that will significantly nice up any self-respecting dancefloor! On the flip "Shekere" gets more mysterious and intense with its tribal drumming inducing higher levels with enduring state of trance. Tip!
Review: Here's a record label based in the UK, run by Tom Blip which has previously brought us the likes O'Flynn, Spooky J and now Glowing Palms. According to the label themselves, this Manchester born sonic sorcerer is up next for a well overdue record since 2013. His inimitable sound of 'trancey synths and twinkly treats' has earned support across the game with everyone from Kornel Korvacz and Moxie championing his weighty yet joyful floor fillers. On the A side we've got some sunny and tropical house in the form of the bombastic "Kiki". On the flip its equally as shimmering and retro on the cute 8-bit groove of "Asteroidz" but its more Giana Sisters at the discotheque if you ask us. Lovin' it!
Review: Championed by Midland & Bradley Zero to name a couple, here are some fresh cuts for the afro-enthusiastic bass music lovers! O'Flynn's first vinyl release sees him flip around a Calypso drum solo on the A side for a seriously powerful and percussive tune, whilst side B reveals an explosion of African vocal chants and melodic treats. A real statement of intent for the first release on this new label.
Review: For a label with just two releases to their name in the space of a year, there is certainly an air of excitement about Blip Discs. Of course it helps when you have the likes of Four Tet, Pearson Sound, Midland and Gilles Peterson championing your cause! O'Flynn was responsible for the first Blip release and he's back for this third 12", teeing off with the full throttle blast of conga rhythms, heaving sub bass and tribal chanting that is "Oberyn". It contrasts nicely with the more sedate b side "Spyglass", an altogether jazzier affair that sits nicely alongside the Disco Mantras collection from Mood Hut.
