DOWNLOAD: JAMES BLAKE ‘S LIVE ALBUM

Even though 2012 is shaping up to be a wonderful year in music … I don’t mind looking back if it’s James Blake we are talking about. The British singer-songwriter, producer has come  a long way since he started his musical career by releasing a string of impressive mainly dubstep oriented EP’s from his bedroom. He actually started his musical career when he was in his final year at Goldsmiths, University of London where he studied popular music.

Well it’s almost 3 years since his first release … an EP by the name of  “Air and Lack Thereof” but I think it’s safe to say that after his selftitled debut album he has arrived. The album was, to say the least, slightly different from all his previous releases but was pretty well received nontheless.

I guess Mr. Blake wanted to show his ever growing amount of fans a little bit of gratitude when he provided them with the link for an unofficial FreeLP . The FreeLP can be downloaded from his Tumblr site and features live versions of I think every track on his album. kudos to Pinboardblog for providing us with the soundcloud stream.

Even though the whole release is worth while … track 14 “love what Happened Here”  is the one that really floats my boat.

Enjoy!!



CHAGALL – BREATHE (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Even though Chagall seems to be more of an electro pop songstress (something the Strangefruitmusicblog tends to avoid) … I’ve got this feeling we have to keep an eye on this 23 year old Amsterdam based artist.

Chagall’s EP officially dropped today and of course it’s available on iTunes. Since I’m not a big fan of snippets you can click here to listen to her debut release in full. The funny thing about this release is that the bonus track “Breathe” happens to be the banger and if you ask me this should be Chagall’s signature sound ..

The Carbonated EP is the last release derived from material from the Crooks and Lovers album, and includes remixes of the title track by Airhead and Peter Van Hoesen. B-sides include “Baves Chords”, produced at the same time as the Maybes EP, and “Flux”, written for the Carbonated EP.



UNTOLD SONGS VOLUME ONE (NEW RELEASE) by Noggy

Love this from beginning to end … “Untold Songs”  is a perfectly compiled release featuring all female vocalists who all sing their stories in different ways with music from various genres. Apart from good music you are supporting a good cause when you decide to cop this disc.

Big Up for Belle, the London based singer who selected all the songs for this album. She some how managed to make a perfectly smooth blend of songs and artists that might seem like a mismatch at first glance. If something seems vaguely familiar that might be cause she is not exactly a stranger to Strangefruitmusic since she was featured on the blog a while ago.

The compilation is being released in collaboration with Amnesty International and She Said 2 Much to raise awareness and money for Amnesty International’s “Stop Violence Against Women” campaign. Proceeds from the sale of this release will go straight to Amnesty International. Prior to this release a free download with remixes was provided and you can download that here

Taken from Skream’s 2010 release Outside the Box is the very dope electronic track Where you should be. While headnodding to this I couldn’t help thinking that there was something very familiar to the overall sound. Turns out Skream is one of the Magnetic Man who have earned a place in my heart by producing Getting Nowhere featuring John Legend.
