New Music : Ross D / Lou Barlow / Kids At The Bar / Photomachine

From Philadelphia but now based out of New York comes Drum and Bass producer Ross D, who in September will release his debut album "Musical D-Lite" through Playloop Records. "215" is an uplifting piece of D+B that is hard to ignore especially when kicking back in the sun with some brews (what sun you say!?). I expect big things from the full length album which comes out physically on September 8th, but is already available digitally through the usual outlets. Ross D Myspace

Previously with Dinosaur Jr and Sebadoh, Lou Barlow returns after a four year break from his last album "Emoh" with his new one "Goodnight Unknown". There is great power in his work, not only coming from his vocals but also from the clever arrangement used particularly between the drums and guitars. The album will be released on October 5th through Domino Records. Lou Barlow website



"Walking On A Dream" seems to have been remixed by everyone and their Gran in the last year, but when its done to the quality that Kids At The Bar have produced its hard to ignore. Straight away the tempo is high, and yet it's a more chilled out affair than most remixes. KATB have done this remix right I reckon, utilising the best of the original and not changed things too much. What's left is a chilled out Summer banger that will have you raving.

Santogold made one of my favourite albums last year with her self titled debut, so its a risky business when the material gets reworked. Thankfully Brixton based producer Photomachine has done a fine job, turning "Creator" into a carnival anthem, with plenty of steel drums and a rather large bassline which take the song to a different level, but still utilizes her wicked vocals.
