Mix / Steve Cobby / Hemidemisemiquaver

Steve Cobby`s Hemidemisemiquaver is due to hit shops in the next couple of weeks (you can order a copy here). By way of promo, Steve did a few exclusive mixes, and Ban Ban Ton Ton was one of the sites that got lucky. Broadcast last Saturday on FM Karuizawa 77.5 MHZ, Steve`s own Boom Bap seduction themes weave in and out of the selections. Sequencing sultry Soul, beautiful bass and conscious lyrics. Aquatic organ tones riding bolstered breaks. A battery phased and rolling. Sweet chimes encouraged by handclaps. A piano riff that raises spirits like the sun and a new dawn. A Soul Jazz Gospel call for change. Something built on an old Paul Simon loop. All combine in a beat-driven, head-nodding calm. Warm dream-like Pop. A syncopated Modern World music. Sleepy clockwork acoustics segue with strings that ache. Dulcimers. Drums via Axelrod via DJ Shadow. A choir of angels singing a hymn for a hustler.
