Leaders of London’s Bruk movement CoOp continue to expose a wealth of fresh talent navigating in and around the world of broken beat and beyond with the third instalment of their Selectors Assemble series.

Following various artist releases that saw rollers from both old and new school players like Seiji, Henry Wu, Entek and EVM128, CoOp Presents proceed with Selectors Assemble Volume Threea six-track selection from their ever-growing squad that sweeps club styles and brings another assortment of dancefloor ammo.

With efforts from German trio Soul Parlor, label bosses IG & Phountzi (aka NameBrandSound), Gontzi and more, today we focus on the soulful grooves of next-gen member James Rudie. Branded as ‘drunken house’, ‘BoxD’ sees Rudie continue to pull out the swing, with extra shuffle in the kit and tender notes in all the right places.

Entek 'Hrs Remix' feat. Alxndr London

 

Later this month, CoOp Presents will launch with Selectors Assemble Volume Two.

Founded by IG Culture and Alex Phountzi, CoOp Presents looks to continue the spirit of the legendary CoOp movement, while focusing on the wealth of talent that exists within the London Bruk movement and beyond.

The first release follows last summer's Selectors Assemble EP, released via First Word Records, which gave the world the first glimpse of the CoOp Presents crew via a selection of UK dance cuts. Selectors Assemble Volume Two presents a six-track selection taking in jazzy 4/4 club cuts, deep broken beats outings, and funk-infused soul.

In support of the release, the label has offered up a bonus remix from Entek feat. Alxndr London, a stunning, head nodding cut which you can grab via WeTransfer below. You can pre-order Selectors Assemble Volume Two here.

Tomorrow, the crew will also be throwing a party at London's The Jazz Cafe, which you can check out here.

GAMMA RIDDIM’ (COOP PRESENTS)

On  by  in Features

 

Leaders of London’s Bruk movement CoOp have been paving the way for its revival as of late, exposing us to a wealth of fresh talent navigating in and around the world of broken beat and beyond from their new CoOp Presents imprint.

Founded by original dons of the scene IG Culture and Alex Phountzi, the label debuted with the Selectors Assemble EP via First Word Records last summer, with rollers from both old and new school players such as Seiji and Henry Wu.

The upcoming Selectors Assemble Volume Two works much in the same vein, showcasing talent from originators and newcomers alike, transcending genres and geographics.

With cuts from James Rudie, Entek Danvers and NameBrandSound (IG Culture and Alex Phountzi), we focus on ‘Gamma Riddim’ By EVM128, one of the original Bruk soldiers and a long-time Hyponik favourite.

EVM’s self-titled style of ‘Raggage’ sits somewhere in-between the worlds of garage, soul, hip-hop, boogie and broken beat. This one comes full Rudeboy-riddim, working broken tribal textures and fat synths into a sweat!

 

 

CoOp Presents Selectors Assemble Vol 2

Proud to announce that Selectors Assemble Volume 2 drops on the 23rd of February to launch the CoOp Presents label. Brand new 6 track EP featuring new music from EVM128 Cengiz ENTEK James Rudie Danvers and this Namebrandsound remix of London artist Miraa May premiered via Complex. More info and preorder links for vinyl and digital below....

Premiere: NameBrandSound Give Miraa May's "I Don't Want Ya" A UKG Bounce For 'Selectors Assemble'

Miraa may

After the success of Volume 1 last year, CoOp presents are about to drop Selectors Assemble Volume 2 (due Feb 23), a collection comprised of UK dance music pioneers and current talent within the London Bruk movement. Founded by IG Culture and Alex Phountzi (aka NameBrandSound), the project exists to bridge the gap and serve as an umbrella to veterans and newcomers alike.

Over six tracks, the likes of EVM128, James Rudie and others vibe, groove and flex, showcasing their unique talents, creating the perfect soundtrack to start or even finish any Friday/Saturday night. To give you an idea of what we're talking about, we're sharing Miraa May and NameBrandSound's contribution to the comp: the latter's remix of  "I Don't Want Ya", a hyped-up, bouncy take on UK garage and bassline with more experimental electronic sounds thrown in, deftly balancing the two worlds.

The Psychology of DJing IG Culture

Gilles Peterson has been one of the world’s top DJs for three decades, but his fascination with the craft remains as bright as ever. So in The Psychology of DJing, Gilles interviews five of his favorite DJs to explore life behind the turntables.  Why do they do it? How do they handle the pressure? What’s it like to build a profession out of a passion?

Gilles says, “Having been in the DJ cockpit for more than 30 years, I’ve always been fascinated by what makes other DJs tick. I still love it to bits, but there have been times of doubt. So that’s what I wanted to find out about in this series – chatting to some of my favorite characters on the world circuit about the highs and lows of playing records to people.”

The series features intimate chats with Seth Troxler, The Black Madonna, Craig Richards, IG Culture and Cassy and each discussion takes a slightly different turn, covering everything from breastfeeding to the pressures of tough crowds.

And because Gilles has been there, done it and got the t-shirt, all five of his interviewees are searingly honest about the joys and struggles of their creative endeavor.

Ivan 'Mamao' Conti | Tenderlonious, IG Culture, Reginald Omas Mamode IV & Jeen Bassa remixes

Screen shot 2017 03 12 at 9 06 50 am

Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti is one of the greatest drummers on earth. A true rhythmic innovator, he is Brazil’s answer to Tony Allen, Steve Gadd, and Bernard Purdie (no small claim considering the country’s famed samba connection). Known by most as one third of Azymuth, his career spans far beyond with over half a century’s worth for recordings with the likes of Milton Nascimento, Eumir Deodato, Marcos Valle, Hyldon, Gal Costa and Jorge Ben. More recently Mamao recorded an album with hip-hop royalty Madlib under the shared moniker ‘Jackson Conti’.

Now aged seventy, Mamao’s work ethic is as strong as ever. In anticipation of a new Ivan Conti solo album set for release in 2017, We've commissioned a series of remixes to be spread across two separate 12”s. Here's the first, a strictly London affair, with a fiery broken-boogie club monster from West London pioneer IG Culture, joined by the signature future-funk of 22a Records family Tenderlonious, Reginald Omas Mamode IV and Jeen Bassa. The second 12” will host remixes from Max Graef, Glenn Astro and Contours.

 

Out now in the igculture.com store!

More classic music from the vaults of the legendary West London label!

Namebrandsound present Arena Yard with Sam Binga,  

at Sept 24 - Namebrandsound system aka IG Culture and Alex Phountzi bring back their red hot new dance, Arena Yard, to the Bussey building/CLF Art Cafe. This month's ranking good time session seeing Critical Music mainstay Sam Binga guesting on the decks for a sub-loaded rinse out of Footwork, Jungle, Hip Hop, Broken Beat, Dancehall & Beyond. 

Namebrandsound 

Launched in 2014 on Ninja Tune offshoot 'Technicolor' NameBrandSound is the coming together of UK music veterans IG Culture & Alex Phountzi - best known for their involvement in the Broken Beat scene as New Sector Movements & Bugz in the Attic. 

Their history in London's music scene, especially their role in legendary club series Co-Op, informs their music with a deep understanding of UK sound system culture. Recent releases including their Nowadays Pressure EP & Spaceship EP have seen support from key tastemakers Alexander Nut, Brackles, Benji B, Gilles Peterson & more. 

Both IG & Alex have a long-standing reputation as all encompassing selectors playing everything from Footwork, 2-Step, Soul, Dancehall and Broken beat. Together as NameBrandSound they create a sound system ethos where anything goes, with eclectic DJ sets spanning the widespread selection of influences that feature in their groundbreaking productions. 

Sam Binga 

Guest selector for this session is Critical, Exit & 50 Weapons regular Sam Binga (Bristol). His productions & mixes span Bass-heavy UK sounds, making Binga the perfect addition to the Arena Yard series at the CLF/Bussey. From Dancehall flavoured releases with Redders, to Footwork / Jungle alongside Om Unit, Sam Binga has been merking dancefloors with a variety of badman styles for some time now. Coming to the CLF/Bussey for the first time we can't wait to hear his trademark tightly coiled productions & dancefloor movin' riddims pumping out of the Void Air Motion rig in our 2nd Floor Warehouse space.
