Hector Plimmer | Sunshine Remixed

Born and raised in South London, Hector Plimmer is a designer, producer and DJ, who has been making some considerable waves in recent times. Beginning with an appearance on 2011’s Brownswood Bubblers compilation, Hector proved his talent when he was selected as the winner of the PRS Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award. Originally released in early 2017, his Sunshine LP now gets a series of remixes. Some blunted urban hip-hop flavour on Reginald Omas Mamode IV’s remix of “Sunshine”, that dusty MPC deep house sound of Berlin courtesy of their city’s finest Glenn Astro, on his remix of “Bossa” while Mr Beatnick turns in an utterly hypnotic remix of “Kalimba 2”.

Available now on Bandcamp.

havana club rumba sessions


Gilles Peterson’s “Havana Club Rumba Sessions” is a collection of remixes from a roster of producers spread across locales as wide as South London to Japan and beyond. Berlin-based Max Graef & Glenn Astro deliver a kickdrum-sprung workout that pays testament to the free and easy hip hop beatmaking in a style that’s long been their m.o.; Motor City Drum Ensemble’s four-to-the-floor arrangement loops things up into a hypnotic slow burn; Japan’s Daisuke Tanabe & Yosi Horikawa tease out the rhythm to a careful balance between percussion and undercurrents of bass; France’s débruit ratchets up the tempo in a beautifully polished rework that slots the click of the percussion into a steady bounce; Pablo Fierro takes things in similarly intense fashion in a pared down mix geared for the dancefloor at peaktime; Canada-based Poirier keeps things steady with delicate melodies adding an emotive edge.

The final mixes are by four of the producers involved in the 22a beatmaker collective, the first of which is by Reginald Omas Mamode IV who folds the Cuban rhythm into atypically disjointed construction; Tenderlonious spaces out gentle chords and a vocal from Daymé Arocena to keep things sparse.

Releases on March 11th – Streaming after the jump.
