Track Of The Day: The Go! Team – ‘All The Way Live’

With a brand new album due out later this month, musical collective The Go! Team have now shared a new single, following their last release ‘Mayday’.

Taken from their upcoming album, ‘All The Way Live’ is filled with all the uptempo break-beats and soaring, brass melodies you could ever desire. Racing with a frenzied energy and playful, vibrant joy, it fuses together elements of hip-hop, soul and pop to create another immediately infectious, dance-inducing earworm from this magnificent band. Of the track, Ian Parton explains:

“‘All the Way Live’ is just an all out brass attack set to some pretty cheeky rapping. Lots of the voices are sampled from a record made as a kinda after school hip hop project by students of Carver Senior High, Chicago in 1983. We managed to track down the teacher behind the project – Mr. Harris – to clear it. It wasn’t really the fact it was old skool that attracted me but the personality and cheekiness that was jumping off the vinyl…”

Semicircle, the upcoming album from The Go! Team, is out 19th January via Memphis Industries – pre-order here. And catch the band live:

Track Of The Day: Anushka – ‘Mountains’

If you’re looking for something to funk up your Tuesday, Brighton duo Anushka are here to do just that. Together, Max Wheeler and Victoria Port combine elements of soul, house, jazz and hip hop to create a fresh, psychedelic, up-beat sound.

“It’s a song about how we are so often thrown into situations with people and they just aren’t ready to step up and be in the moment,” the band explain. “It’s about personal growth and how we move on from people, how we reconcile and forgive and about how we become our own strength.”

Anushka are preparing to share their new EP, which will feature artwork from artist and fashion designer Ryan Hawaii, in the next few months.

Listen to ‘Mountains’ below.
