All City presents ‘Amada’; 13 exclusive tracks (plus one bonus in the form of a 7 inch flexi disc) from a selection of a mix of interesting underground producers from around the globe.
Over the last few years Mamiko Motto has built a reputation for searching and unearthing some of tomorrows best new production talent via her Hepcat show on NTS Radio and through work with Dutch label Kindred Spirits, recording as part of Wednesday Nite and some jet set DJ-ing, she has been mobile enough with a large Rolodex of contacts to hassle and compile the tracks for “Amada”. The record takes flight with the dreamy ‘Take It Back’ by NY’s hotly tipped Obey City. The artist formerly known as Kasrave, now Young Mind, follows with ‘Jennifer’ and we hit the dancefloor with Bobby’s ‘Tame The Shrew’. Free-form soulstress Georgia Anne Muldrew gives us a gospel diversion with ‘Git Thee’, and All City favourite Stones Throw’s James Pants’ comes with his unique brand of psychedelic-electro-wave on ‘Ritual Magick’. Modern hip hop beats from Silkersoft and Darq E Freaker deliver testosterone thrust while Fatima Yamaha’s pogo pumping ‘AAA’ ignites a rythmical groove. The young SCNTST comes with the hypnotic and pounding ‘For Forest Play Only’, before Mweslee’s second outing on the label with ‘Una 41 (In Memoriam)’. DZ and Ruckazoid drop a lo-fi heartbreaker with ‘Shoulda Coulda’. Austrian Korg wizard Dorian Concept joins to bid a melancholic farewell on ‘Empty Everything (But you)’ and American Men’s Claude Speeed closes out the LP with ‘Crushed Rave’. A variety of beats, tempos and styles is completed with a bonus track on a 7 inch flexi disk from the mysterious GMCFOSHO.
