Always been a fan of James Braun’s output, his previous releases on Tartelet & Jackoff ooze with rhythmic grooves and funk. He may have been a bit quiet of late but a little birdie tells me he is prepping a return to the forefront of underground clubbing. In the meantime, he is kindly giving away a track for free over on his Soundcloud. “Proto” steadily builds into a deep, driving, chuggy monster; it stays just on the right side of bizarre and it clearly epitomises the raw vibe James Braun has been championing from the offset. Ultimately, it’s free, so go cop.
As a small bonus, go grab this hour long mix recorded for Sceen.Fm alongside Tartelet head honcho Fredski. As a welcome change of pace, it’s not a club mix, it traverses jazz, hip hop, folk, highlife and more weirdness.
