DJ Simon S - Music 4 Alternative SoulsFuturistica
DJ/Producer Simon S has been at the helm of Futuristica for well over a decade. Few labels have consistently released as much high quality downtempo grooves and jazz infused soulful hip hop during this period. The aptly titled "Music 4 Alternative Souls" is filled with dreamy tracks and thought provoking hip hop that sink into your body and warm your soul. "Looking" is sublime downtempo soul by vocalist J.Mcfysian. Newcomer Georgie Sweet's tender vocals are a delight on the blissful "Half Human". Rapper Jack Jones spits poignant verses on the gritty "Slick". There's some notable remixes as well. K15 reworks "For You" into a lush house stomper and Mecca 83's layered beats on "Beautiful" are also a highlight. This superb release is just a snapshot of the notable contributions from the Futuristica family. Press play, lean back and enjoy.
