Download: Matt Karmil "Sinkhole"

Label: PNN

Germany-based newcomer Matt Karmil will soon see the release of his debut full-length titled ---- on April 28 for German imprint PNN. The LP will follow a string of recent 12'' releases that put the rising producer on the map, garnering him attention for his uniquely textured aesthetic that is ever present in album cut "Sinkhole." Featured here, the hazy tune layers dusty samples and an understated acid melody atop Karmil's sunken shuffle. In addition to the cloudy "Sinkhole" tune, the entirety of Karmil's ---- LP is available to stream here.

Download: Casino Times "Some of Her Love (Version)"

First Listen

A newly retooled version of a tune first released by the pair back in 2012, "Some of Her Love (Version)" finds London pair Casino Times (a.k.a. Nick Church and Joseph Spencer) digging deep into hypnotic grooves and detailed percussion. Spanning over eight minutes, the track focuses on a single loop of filtered soul, on top of which the duo builds a cyclical assemblage of shuffling rhythms which gradually pick up meticulous percussion hits as the production rolls along. In the end, "Some of Her Love (Version)" is hard not to sink into; it's elongated run wisely substituting genuine, deep-reaching groove for superfluous sonic flashes.
