CHA CHA GUITRI -  French Synth wave - St Etienne 1981, BORN BAD RECORDS
**Includes fold out liner notes/art insert housed in glossy jacket** Bright, colourful synth-pop gems from the heart of France, 1981. Practically unknown to all but the mist dedicated Francophile pop fiends, St. Etienne-based Cha Cha Guitri were a four piece comprising two couples who made exquisitely sharp edged and bittersweet synth pop with an unmistakably Gallic panache. Far as we can tell these tracks have never been released on vinyl before, and should be thoroughly recommended to fans of Telex, Deux, Mathematiques Modernes…

Includes all the tracks from their singles plus a ruck of new gear."Jungle are based around a core musical duo of lifelong friends known simply as ‘J’ and ‘T’, who expand to a thrilling seven piece live, and make mesmeric, kaleidoscopic modern soul that’s unmistakably born in the UK but has true global appeal. The album was recorded between the band’s own home studio in Shepherds Bush, London and the XL Recordings studio in nearby Ladbroke Grove."

'Aetas' is more expansive, fluidly dubwise, rolling off warm bass into a sea of shimmering machine rhythms for the dancers.

Lewisham grime prodigy Novelist shows some serious production chops on the follow-up to his vocal for Mumdance's 'Take Time'. Much like his angular, agitant mic style, Novelist's beats are all clipped vectors and kerned bars laced with luminous lines of logic, very similar in fact to the relation between Wiley's vocal and production styles. Anyway, these debut productions are fiyah, popping off from the gunshots and snake-charming sino-melody of 'Sniper' to the cheeky bubble of 'Christmas Riddim' and the Chipsy-like motifs of 'Mee2 Remix', and the sparring dancer, 'Messy'. Recommended.
