Real Connoisseur – Jungle Jakarta EP (Purp & Soul)
Purp & Soul once more looks to one of their own to take the reigns on the next release.. Along with a new brand image and direction, the label is relaunching with ‘Jungle Jakarta/You Don´t Love’ from young rising star Real Connoisseur.
Real Connoisseur (Conor Lloyd) is a 19 year old producer from Oxford who has been immersed in music his entire life. His father a garage DJ, his mother obsessed with 70s Soul and Disco, it´s easy to see where this young talent got his starting gun. His first release, a track on Purp005 VA, steadily rose the charts and gained him a busy gig diary as well as some high profile remix requests and support from all over UK and abroad.
‘Jungle Jakarta’ is an unmistakable piece. It´s already been road tested in clubs for months now by a select few. Finally getting a release with two fine remixes, the original starts with a looped vocal and chord, shudders down into a breakdown Real Connoisseur already is renowned for, only to drop into a subbass fuelled jungle sampled riot.
Next up is ‘You Don´t Love’, stuttered vocals and lush synths once more to build, this time a bass that rises from the wash, Conor is really demonstrating his skill to create immaculate club tracks with a 21st century twist.
Chaos In The CBD (Hot NZ duo with releases on ClekClekBoom, Needwant, Younggunz Ent. and more) step up to plate with a raw house groove. Making use of the melodic elements of the track, dreamy synths wash in and out with a ride stepping the energy up towards the end of the track.
Artifact comes off the back of the monster ´The Way It Do´ on SomeThinkSounds, the Bristol based producer has also released on Local Action, Deadplate and Rebirth. He takes the original chord and chops it into a tougher 4/4 beat, a pounding low end, vocal stabs and rough hats are his trademark sounds doing the business as always, look out for the last drop.
