TUNE OF THE MONTH

Gundam 'Too Late' (Goon Club Allstars)

It’s been a long time coming, but Gundam’s debut for London’s Goon Club Allstars offers up all the chopped and screwed, 8-bar grime-meets-r’n’b goodness you could ever have wished for. ‘Too Late’ is the flipside of his double single and arguably shades it from frenetic A-side ‘Intimate’, patching together blissed-out sweetboy melodies and sparkly FX that make you dream of faraway Caribbean islands and piña coladas with some serious club verve and swagger. This one’s been well worth the wait.

8/10

Bisweed 'The Baby EP' (Gourmet Beats)

More classy, refined dub workouts from Joe Nice’s Gourmet Beats imprint, with Bisweed delivering the goods this time. From the booming sub, delicate melody lines and trippy, space-age FX on opener ‘Baby’, it’s immediately a lovely listen, but it’s the cool, mellow, summertime flow of ‘Sunshine’ that really got us in a zone we couldn’t (and didn’t want to) escape from. Final cut ‘Fay’ also feels like a classic – think Mala’s ‘Alicia’ in places – but the three tracks together really do gel. Perfect to blare out of your speakers in the park on a summer afternoon.

8/10
