Simone "Jazz It Up !!!" Vimercati
Another great work from my friend Tommaso. In this record he expresses once again his eclectic attitude giving us a blend of sounds between jazz, electronic and jazz.
Favorite track: No Flies For A Closed Mouth (feat. Piero Bittolo Bon).
Butterflying — the latest offering from Italian multi-instrumentalist, producer and selector, Tommaso Cappellato — is an honest celebration of musical evolution.
Inspired by a recent trip to NYC (where he spent most of his formative years) and a beat tape by definition, these eight tracks saunter between lo-fi hip hop and free jazz, from downtempo electronica to ambient bliss; the result of an open-hearted approach to discovery and time spent meticulously unearthing, rearranging and merging old and new material.

I might love this even more than Black Focus. Why? There is more of a focus on that Wu Funk sound, more melodies by the rhythm master, more hip-hop flavor, a chance for Kamaal to really shine. A perfect balance between hard hitting sounds with more melodic and meditative ones. One of the few albums I wish was 24-bit quality, that is how great this is. At the top of all the 2018 "best of" lists for a reason. Much respect HW. Edward
And Yet It's All Love picks up where the classic Yellow Memories left off, more modern production, funkier rhymes, varied styles. No surprise this is being played all over and praised by music heads like Gilles Peterson. What makes Fatima so special isn't just her voice, but that she's got a funk/style/edge to her and her music. Big up Alex Nut and Eglo for spreading joy through music and to Fatima for making art in an unforced manner and giving us a glimpse into her life and soul. It's all ❤ Edward
