Paving their way in dance music as an forward-thinking label with little restraints on sound or style, Banoffee Pies Records have earned a permanent place in respected UK musical output over the last few years. Now the imprint ventures into a new genre spectrum with BPBEATS01, a 12 track LP of sample-heavy dusty hip hop and original crooning vocals from German beat-maker Flo Filz alongside a group of local producers.
Today we premiere our favourite track off the new release, seeing a marriage made in heaven between London-based beat aficionado slim. and mysterious soulstress Ella Mae. We don’t know too much about either of the talents, but we’ll just let the music do the talking. Cloudy piano jazz chords merge with Dilla-esque warm and dusty percussion, whilst a ‘93 to Infinity‘-inspired delay-soaked guitar note echoes in and out of the mix. And what brings all these perfect ingredients together is the sultry notes from Ella Mae, bringing Erykah Badu-inspired melodies and angelic harmonies. The ultimate late-night headphone groover.
Buy/Pre-order BPBEATS01 from Bandcamp.
