Interview: Deadpoole

We interviewed Deadpoole about his latest album and his thoughts on last year’s music. Luke: Congratulations on the new album. Would you say this is your best to date? Deadpoole: Thanks so much. I think so, even right from when first I started out I was always working towards an album. The three EP’s that preceded NIGHT/LIFE were me cutting my teeth musically, figuring out…

Languid – Farewell

We gave Languid’s latest track “Farewell” a listen, taken from the “Six Deep” compilation by Rootnote Collective. It’s been far too long since we last heard a full release from Languid but we’ll make do with this gem. Farewell sees the UK producer back on his Japanese tip, high on the treble with plenty of crazy chops in between. Amongst the other artists on the…

Languid – Spring Breeze

Spring is here, because Languid said so with his new beat. Some say spring starts on 22nd March but Languid has other ideas. When the weather is just right, he goes out and makes a beat for it and BANG, it’s offically spring. Spring Breeze is the latest beat from the Ipswich-based beat aficionado, dropped not long after his appearance on Pragmatic Theory’s Euphonic Elements…

Languid Wants You to Pheel the Love

The homie Languid takes no days off even on his days off.  Fresh off the last collaborative effort with SoulStarr, Languid’s back with a new LP entitled Pheels and it’s all about that love jones in your bones. The Zimbabwean-born British producer continues to showcase his talents on this smoother-than-smooth release, further proving that he flip a track at Cirque-Du-Soliel acrobatic levels all without breaking…

Languid – Nvr Lie

Languid returns with a short but sweet old skool vibe. Just over a week after dropping the crazy Yuu Dew (ReelLuv), Languid is back with another jam. Slightly more “new school” than the previous, Nvr Lie jumps around with bright percussion and a slightly waltzing tempo. At just over 90 seconds, you might to put this on repeat if you’re looking to jam but it’s…

Leftover Links #3 – Bandcamp Tracks

Today’s Leftover Links are filled with Bandcamp goodness. We’re back with another edition of Leftover Links and today’s are all about Bandcamp. The online music store has been around since 2008 and has gone from strength to strength, helping independent musicians get their music out without the constraints of services like iTunes. We’ve found some real gems while tag searching but we can’t get round to…

VIDEO: Languid – Somewhere In Amsterdam

Languid’s trip to Amsterdam produced a superb Dilla flip and an awesome video. Recently, UK-based producer Languid took a trip to Amsterdam for some much needed R&R (records and records) and as a souvenir, he brought back this beautiful Dilla flip and video to go with it. The best part is it features on the Pragmatic Theory’s New Classic compilation album alongside beatmakers like Vanilla, Warren…

Languid – Ask Me Why (Beatles Flip)

Languid flips The Beatles and leaves us with this beast. I’m still a little gassed so bare with me here. To mark the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first ever single, BBC Suffolk ask for British producers to covers and flips of Beatles tracks. Languid was one of the fortunate fourteen and decided to switch up Please Please Me. What he came up with is…

VIDEO: Meet Languid And Rhythm Circus

Welcome to the crazy world of Languid and Rhythm Circus… This is possibly the craziest video I’ve seen all year. You’ll know Languid very well here at Sampleface from our reviews and just the general love but you may not know his involvement with his Rhythm Circus. Now, your guess is as good as mine as to what the hell Rhythm Circus is but from…
