  4. Black Pow Wow (3:59)
Review: Brassfoot's first two outings on Apron - the Lord Tusk hook-up Space Invaders, and last year's untitled EP - were typically unfussy. "Unlucky Charms", the opening salvo of this third release for Funkineven's imprint, takes a similar approach, with vintage electro motifs underpinning distorted percussion and wild electronics. Elsewhere, his trademark fuzziness is applied in a number of contrasting ways, from the clanking, locked-in, rave-inspired throb of "Retune & Runaway", to the bizarre sonic assault that is crusty closer "Black Pow Wow". For pace purposes, he also offers a breather in the shape of jazz-tinged deep house shuffler "Lost In The Sauce".

Deep House
  1. Summa Breez (7:55)
  2. Diskother (2:13)
  3. Kinda Late (5:37)
Review: Last year, Bastien Carrara joined forces with Rawthenticity boss Fulbert on Mont Cenis Tapes 01, a cassette of collaborative explorations in the experimental end of dusty deep house. This outing for Funkineven's Apron imprint marks his solo debut, and it's something of an action-packed hit. A-side "Summer Breeze" is something of a slammer, with dreamy pads and swirling synthesizer chords riding a thumping, distorted drum machine groove. "Diskother" sees him change tack to deliver a loved-up, pitched-down instrumental '80s soul edit, before he brings out the drum machines once more on the tactile, late night oddness of leftfield deep house gem "Kinda Late".

Review: Given that Steven Julien made his debut as Funkineven on Eglo way back in 2009, this debut album has been a long time coming. Since those days the London producer has shuffled between sumptuous, synth-heavy experimental boogie, rasping techno and bolshy analogue house jams. All of these styles get a look in on Fallen, alongside bumpin' deep house, smooth jazz-funk, soulful broken beat, stripped-back electro, spacey US garage, and bizarre electronic wig-outs. That many of these styles are fused, chopped-up and played around with throughout makes Fallen hard to pin down, but also hugely entertaining.

Techno
  1. Cali 76
  2. Pays To Be Pushed
Played by: Cottam, Soul Of Hex
Review: For the latest release on his constantly impressive Apron imprint, Stevie "Funkineven" Julien has looked to Bristol for inspiration. Lend Me Your Ears marks the debut of new production twosome LMYE, a mysterious collaboration between a 30-something Londoner, and one of the West Country's most impressive young talents. They start with "Cali 76", an intriguing fusion of techno kicks, wonderfully loose percussion, woozy guitar samples and dashing Rhodes notes. They push things up a notch on "Pays To Be Pushed", where exotic sitar lines and dreamy pads ride bumpin', garage influenced grooves. Interestingly, both cuts are notably different from either producer's solo work, making it harder to easily guess their identities.
