Video: Sampha – Too Much

Drake’s Sampha-featuring ‘Too Much’ was a highlight of his recent full-length Nothing Was The Same, and now Sampha has leaked his own chilling solo version. The Emile Haynie-produced song will be released along with ‘Happens’ on November 12 via Young Turks, and a 7″ version will follow on January 26.

Bodhi – Imperfection

Cardiff-based duo of 25 year olds Olly Howells and Luke Welsby, a.k.a. Bodhi, continues to amaze us with funk influenced, completely fresh take on dance music. Channeling the vibes of uplifting, dusty house into the sleekest forms of modern bass music, their enchanting, dancefloor-ready vibe is already demanding considerable attention. Having already wowed us with their EP “Culture”/”Deliquesce”, released earlier this year via Sinden’s Grizzly imprint, and their quality remixes, now Bodhi are getting ready to drop their new EP “Imperfection”/”No More” on Future Classic.

Here’s the EPs lead single “Imperfection” for your listening pleasure. Bodhi’s “Imperfection”/”No More” EP, backed with a remix from Future Classic’s very own Charles Murdoch, will arrive on October 7. Pre-order your 12” here. As a bonus, check out their rework of Sampha’s Without, below.
