Amadou & Mariam - Ce N'est Pas Bon (A JD Twitch edit)

This was supposed to be part of Twitch's Autonomous Africa project but it failed to get cleared in time for the third part of the series; instead it will come out as a stand alone release on 10" vinyl. This has been a secret Optimo weapon since 2008, once again all proceeds go directly to the Mtandika mission in Tanzania.

Thurston Moore & Steve Shelley NTS 12th August

Lee Gamble- Mimas Skank

There's a lot of this type of thing around at the moment, dense electronic music that sounds like it was made deep under the ocean bed; no doubt Boomkat will soon do a 14 tracks called Aquacore. This is from Lee Gamble's 'Kuang' EP which is out now on Pan; it squelches along nicely. Get it here.
