Starting this week we open a Soundcloud roundup containing, each week, the most promising artists or already established ones who share their new tunes for free on Soundcloud…

We start this week’s roundup with Sonora the Texan producer who brings us a Boombahchero track filled with balkan trumpets:

Sonora – Cik Cik 2.0

And here is another one by Sonora,  Cumbiaton this time:

Sonora – Paraiso:

If you like this kind of slowed down rhytms you will most likely enjoy this banger by Obeyah in a pure moombathon style:

Loopers – I want it to rock (Obeyah moombathon remix)

We accelerate the tempo for this last one and we head over France with Hybu. He shares with us a bassline garage track which was supposed to be released two years ago but never did. Anyways here is it:

Probably the most influencial electronic music imprint just celebrated its twentieth anniversary.

After releasing an already sold out limited box (if you’re ever selling one give me a shout) and two compilations. Ninja Tune have thrown a celebration tour in Europe with some of its most famous artists: Daedelus, Amon Tobin, The Bug, Roots Manuva, Dj Food & DK, Dj Kentaro, Bonobo,…(with a memorable night in the AB, Brussels).

Ninja Tune also opened for the occasion a soundcloud account containing tribute mixes of the label’s classic tracks mixed by the Ninja Tunes finest artists:

– Dj Kentaro with a pretty straight forward mix with his amazing skills

– Dj Food (without DK this time) with an eclectic selection that goes far away in the Ninja Tune catalogue:

And finally Ghislain Poirier showcasing the future of Ninja Tune sound with lots of his own productions alongside reggae oriented artists of NT such as The Bug, Toddla T and Roots Manuva.

Poirier – Xlr8r podcast 164 (tracklist and download links available)
