BodyMoves – Cariño EP – Out 7 April
Cracking on with releasing as much good music as we can manage, we’re thrilled to be able to announce a project that’s been bubbling under for a good while now. Now we can reveal that BodyMoves is back, with an epic beat tape – in every sense of the word.
“Cariño” is BodyMoves’ most ambitious release to date. An 18 track EP that contains a diverse mixture of beats crafted over the last four years. This dust coated voyage draws on global inspirations and rhythms, refusing to be tied down to any specific sound or style. The EP takes cues from South America, Europe, Asia and Africa, classic soul, jazz, funk, library music and obscure TV audio into a 28 minute-long journey. The album title was inspired by the birth of the artist’s son in April 2016.
The music has respectful nods towards a diverse range of beatmakers, from Al Dobson Jr. to Flying Lotus to Tuamie and has been mastered by Will Horrocks of LV fame. The stunning artwork is a specially commissioned piece by artist Emily Evans. Emily has previously designed artwork for Paul White, Mr Beatnick and Broshuda.
Cassette releases are enjoying a renaissance of late, and true to hip hop culture this beat tape will be released on a strictly limited run of 50 blood red cassettes, and also includes a digital download.
You can order the cassette, individual tracks from the EP or one long continuous mix of the release on our Bandcamp
