Sounds Familiar is celebrating a decade in dance music by releasing 3 LP’s throughout 2023. Titled “Familiar Sounds”, after vol 1 released in April 23 which featured the likes of Dego Kamma & Masalo, Aleqs Notal Feat Anu, Kai Alcé, Retromigration and Hugo LX, the second volume of the trilogy has just been released.
Collecting six new tracks that join the dots between elastic acid house and candle-lit piano jazz, Familiar Sounds Volume 2, features Kaidi Tatham, Carista, Gigi Testa, Zopelar, Alex From Tokyo and K15, on a 12” that reaches into all corners of the roster’s electronic jazz-influenced sound.
The album begins with Kaidi Tatham’s upstart summer anthem ‘Misguided Youts’. Built on a piano vamp and an infectious horn line, the track eases into a consummate piece of future fusion, stirring the melting pot of London’s jazz and broken beat heritage into the kind of soulful jam that has rightly earned him his legendary reputation.
