Julio Bashmore – Kong feat. Bixby
Over a pair of 12” releases on his own Broadwalk Records, Julio Bashmore rounded off 2014 in prolific style with a succession of brilliant tracks (Simple Love, Rhythm of Auld, Knockin’ Boots, Petals) that provided an early taste of the sound of his forthcoming debut album. He now kicks of 2015 in similar style with another cut from the album. Featuring vocals from London based producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and funk colossus Bixby, ‘Kong’ is another fine example of the kind of emotive, powerful, timeless house music that Bashmore has become renowned for.
Meanwhile, Julio Bashmore’s Broadwalk Records continues to go from strength to strength. The label’s most recent release was Shanti Celeste’s acclaimed Universal Glow EP, which followed the success of releases by the likes of Velour, Maddslinky, Kowton, Funkieven and of course Bashmore himself.
