I make some of my best finds on the late night tip. I haven’t been on the late night tune troll for a couple of weeks. My eyes are heavy @ the moment but I’m fighting the cousin of death. And it’s all worth it after hearing this. How many of y’all are up the Toronto-based DJ / producer team Circle Research (Nik Timar & Gil Masuda)?
According to words spoken directly from the mouth of the taller, Caucasian half of the group, “…the Circle Research sound is sort of a mix of electro-soul meets boom bap with a smoked out analog digital vibe.” Yeah, that sounds about right. Peep the EPK to get the full lowdown. There seems to be a big surge of folks merging hip-hop, soul and electronic sensibilities and completely catching wreck. These crazy Canucks to have it down to a science.
So their brand new album, Gardiner Express, just dropped. And I’m instantly hooked. Like Pookie to a crack rock. You want a hit? You can stream the entire thing below. And then when you’re ready to purchase the full-length, which I know you will, you can scoop it right here for a whopping $8.89.
p.s. Okay, I realize some of you greedier folks might want a freebie too? That’s cool. How does a Circle Research remix of Curtis Mayfield’s “Love Is By My Side” sound? Good right? Of course it does. Snatch it up right here.
