Review: Nod Navigators secure this rather nice debut release from The Blessings aka Dom Sum and Fine Art, the founders of awesome Glaswegian imprint Luckyme. Across the seven tracks on Galaxy High the duo combine an understanding of 80s New Jack nostalgia with bouncing future R&B rhythms, crunching beat programming and shimmering synth funk.
Review: Kindred Spirits continues its Nod Navigator series with the new Javaanse Jongens beat ep., 'PS'. 10 Bangers!
Around 1997 De Javaanse Jongens got to know each other. Due to their different backgrounds they were very
open-minded to different kinds of music which resulted in a broad taste and interest of music styles and everything
which was directly connected to that. This passions and love for music was the base of their friendship and by this
De Javaanse Jongens (Dutch for 'The Guys From Java') decided to form a collective which isn't bound to one specific
sound, but in which variation of sounds and grooves is king.
Consisting of four young guys: Wan Kei-You, Jay Bordeaux, Ruben Rahametwau and Louis Bordeaux, d'JJ keep it rocking
with 10 banging tracks on this ep - from heavy thumping drumlines to soulful rhythms with deep vocals it's all here, so play it,
experience it, nod your head to it and feel the versatility. The next Javaanse Jongens project might be different because its like
they say: "Variation spices up life! So we love to flip around our sound and keep evolving."
