Hamilton + Hare Radio: August
Each month we buy our favourite new tracks on Bandcamp, where at least 85% of the money goes directly to the artist or label in line with their Fair Trade Music Policy. Browse our collection here, or listen to the playlist on Spotify.
Shy One’s latest EP journeys through the best of London’s new Broken Beat era, from its soulful centre to the harder edges. Her regular Thursday night show on Balamii is a must-listen.
There’s more UK newness with muva of Earth on Brownswood, Daylight Robbery! and an incredible Terry Callier-esque track from Robohands. Manchester veteran Matthew Halsall also returns with some spiritual nourishment.
Further afield we loved the sound of Surprise Chef coming out of Melbourne, London’s unofficial partner city in Jazz’s new wave (for further listening see 2019’s Sunny Side Up compilation), Jitwam and Summer Vee.
Finally, man of the moment Kareem Ali’s bouncy NY House is the weekend lift we could all do with.
