Manchester’s Ad Hoc Records return to 2018 with a fabulous selection of stunning tracks emphasising the word music. Four numbers go make up this new release starting with So Flute’s Yadava beautifully realised Heart Strings, which harks back to the very definition of Jazz-Funk feeling timeless as breezy rushes of atmospheric strings accompanied by sprinkles of piano ignite the airways. Next, Two Tail & Sid Quirk’s at times defiantly off-kilter yet resolutely brilliant Tid stretches out electric piano into exciting ways. Two Tail then proceeds to hit you square four on the floor fashion with Cat Mask also boasting a brash bassline and excitable jazzy keys, leaving the brighter Cut A Rug by RareBiT to complete this excellent release via more House beats, this time alongside introspective voices and splashes of smoky trumpet.
Release: February 19
