Axel Boman- Fantastic Piano
Following up his release of the aptly titled Black Magic Boman on heavyweight label Hypercolour, the mercurial Swedish producer has put out his debut LP today- Family Vacation, on his very own Studio Barnhus. Having alluded to this project for nearly a year now, Boman’s fans will finally be able to enjoy these 13 full tracks. Here we preview one of the real highlights from his album, the placid and beautiful ‘Fantastic Piano’.
This eclectic approach is hardly surprising considering his work with labels as diverse as Pampa, DFA and Ovuum. Renowned for his singular and inventive take on the house genre, Boman has adopted a particularly experimental attitude with Family Vacation, turning ‘a vast collection of ideas and sketches’ into music that one close friend described as ‘weird Jamaican space disco’. In light of this outlandish description I would encourage you to sit back, turn up your headphones and judge it for yourself.

This season marks the launch of a highly anticipated new collection, that is aesthetically appealing and produced to the highest of standards.
Introducing Carhartt WIP’s latest venture and diffusion line OverAll Mastercloth. Although they only recently unveiled a lookbook for the 2013 winter apparel collection, it has already been receiving rave reviews, including the well respected online site HighSnobiety- “A premium iteration of classic Carhartt workwear designs reinterpreted and modernised, blending functionality with modern design to enhance both innovation and style”.
In short, O.A.M.C have treated us to a premium, high-end take on Carhartt’s popular Work In Progress range. In an ever crowded menswear market, designers Chris Gibbs (Union) and Luke Meier (formerly of Supreme) have remarkably managed to create a line that is not only original in its design but will also appeal to consumers and retailers alike.
O.A.M.C is available worlwide at the following locations- Colette in Paris, Antonioli in Milan, Slam Jam stores in Italy and Union in L.A.

At long last French DJ and producer Sebastian Devaud aka Agoria has released his highly anticipated Scala EP on heavyweight, Berlin-based label Innervisions. Fellow producer and label boss Dixon teased us with the title track in his essential mix last month, and since then it has been in more frequent circulation, played by the likes of Damian Lazarus among others. ‘Scala' is a progressive and emotive track that stays true to Innervisions form, following a basic principle of less is more. The flawless percussion and stripped down, melodic sound of the track is instantly recognisable, whilst the hook is irresistible, and at its crescendo will undoubtedly have any dancefloor on its feet shuffling their appreciation.
