On it, Large Pro gives the first real hints that he’ll not just be a super-producer, but a committed MC to watch.

            Matthew Tavares and Leland WhittyVisionsMr Bongo

            'Visions' is a new collaborative album from BADBADNOTGOOD co-founders, Matthew Tavares and Leland Whitty. Conceptually the album is a canvas for a combination of composition and group free-form improvisation. Tavares and Whitty are the sole composers, but with some tracks collectively improvised, there is also a group dynamic running through the album. The outcome is a sublime melting pot of modern jazz, impressionist classical music and Arthur Verocai-esque arrangements.

            Marcos ValleBraziliance!Mr Bongo

            'Braziliance!' takes things back to the early heady days of Marcos' career with the bright and optimistic sound of Rio's Bossa Nova scene. It includes an instrumental version of 'Crickets Sing For Anamaria' or 'Os Grilos' in Portuguese, which would also be re-recorded with vocals. Though only in his early twenties at the time, 'Braziliance!' depicts very sophisticated production for a musician so young. Recorded in 1966, produced by Louis Oliveira and Ray Gilberts with arrangements by the legendary, Emir Deodato.

            The track follows on from the musical precedent set by Elijah’s previous releases, featuring a melancholic harmonium lead melody backed with theremin sub-bass and driving percussion. The B-side is a live dub take of the track, peppered with warping delays and analogue spring reverb.
