w/ Guilty Simpson, SA-RA more
Cutting-edge Japanese label, Circulations, have joined forces with European tastemaker host of Amp Soul Generation radio show, Jay Scarlett, for the brand new compilation, New Worlds. The project was put together to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the HMV Shibuya store - one of the leading retail supporters of quality music in Japan.
To mark the occasion, they've gathered new and exclusive tracks from some of the most promising artists of this new beat/future soul generation - including Loose Joints alumni SA-RA and Ras_G, as well as Super Smoky Soul & Guilty Simpson, Quadron (which features Robin Hannibal of Owusu & Hannibal/Boom Clap Bachelors fame), Take, Hudson Mohawke, The Big Payback (Onra & Byron The Aquarius) with Reggie B, and plenty more. And these all come packaged with fresh cover art & design courtesy of Philly-based artist, Joshua Mays, who has also blessed covers for Waajeed (The War LP), Mark de Clive-Lowe (The Politik) & Jneiro Jarel (Three Piece Puzzle US release).
To give you a taste of what to expect from New Worlds, Circulations has blessed us with a free download of the track, & Knockout Kings, a heavyweight bout between Japanese production trio, Super Smoky Soul and one of Detroit finest, Guilty Simpson. The song features Guilty throwing his typical K.O.-blows over SSSs fresh approach to a familiar sample. The song will be released as both a limited-edition 7" singles, and a remixed 12&8243; in the coming weeks - so stay tuned for more info on both releases.
But before that, you can also preview two full-length songs below - SA-RA kinky quiet storm bounce, Talk Sex, as well as selector Jay Scarlett's I Cant Help It - a club-friendly, broken thump which also features British singer, Leon King.
And as always, stay tuned after the jump for some bonus selections. This time around highlighting some of Guilty Simpson more low-key collaborations and past mixtape tracks, including tracks from Mr. Porter Runyon Ave. crew.
