2020 – The Year of Crackazat

Created: 29 Jan 2020  / Categories: crackazat

Crackazat is making some serious waves.

Otherwise known as Bristol-born Ben Jacobs, following a move to Sweden he has made a name for himself through the pure infectiousness of his jazz infused jams, played and produced himself on a whole host of instruments. The guy has some serious talent.

Now here in 2020, Crackazat is ready to release his latest magic - his first original work in 2 years.

The 'Valentine' EP drops on vinyl on Freerange Records on Friday January 31st and on general release on 7th February, and is a jazz and funk masterpiece bursting with fat bass lines, solid keyboard riffs and body-popping house beats.

You can read the review and listen to the premiere of lead track Valentine on When We Dip RIGHT HERE

Mixmag have premiered the low slung soul-laden B side - I Heard You

Crackazat has compiled this typically jazz-fuelled swinging playlist exclusively for The FINA Agency. You can listen to it here...

Last year, following a stand-out live performance at Vocal Booth, Crackazat has been in high demand for his show. You can check him out jamming live on his synth and trusty bass HERE on his Facebook Page.

THATMANMONKZ New Album Finally Drops

Created: 23 Oct 2019  / Categories: Thatmanmonkz

We here at The FINA Agency have been waiting for this album to drop.

Since Thatmanmonkz' 'Columbusing' came out in 2016, we have been hooked on his timeless sound, which seems to transition effortlessly from house to disco to soul and everything in between.

Non Zero Sum Game strikes us as something that can be played over and over again in any situation - before a night out, to fill a party dance floor, or to soothe the aftermath. It already feels like a classic.

The thought and love that has gone into the production is overtly apparent, but it isn't contrived in any way.

But that's kind of THATMANMONKZ in a nutshell...

It's already available on shiny vinyl, but the digital drops this Friday 25th October. Order yours right HERE

10 Years Of WOLF Music Recordings

Created: 18 Sep 2019  / Categories: Uncategorised, Wolf Music

Ten solid years in the music industry is no mean feat. However, those WOLF boys have managed to achieve exactly that without too much fuss.

A pure labour of love, the record label was born through a desire to create music ‘For Those That Like To Get Down’. And that they did.

In a digital age of disposable records, Stu Clarke and Matt Neale collected a likeminded roster of producers and, against all the odds, released on vinyl.

Working with the likes of Medlar, Greymatter, KRL and Session Victim, the lads have always stayed true to what they consider real HOUSE culture.

To celebrate 10 years, WOLF were approached by film-maker, Paulo Pennings, who said he had a concept for a short documentary about WOLF Music. The result is ‘For Those That Like To Get Down’ - a documentary which is Paulo’s take on the WOLF Music story, and has seen him and his team joining us at various gigs throughout the world, interviewing some of the main protagonists, and sifting through heaps of archive footage shot over 10 years.

Tomorrow, on September 20th 2019, is the premiere screening at The Everyman Cinema, Kings Cross

If you would like to join them for the screening, you’ll find a link to RSVP on their website -…/for-those-that-like-to-get-down-cine…

After the screening they are hosting a WOLF party at SUPERMAX, Kings Cross - right underneath the cinema. Free entry, open from 8pm till late - WOLF all night - Specifically For Those That Like to Get Down!

Event details - Friday Nights at Supermax: WOLF Music & Friends.

Ilija Rudman’s Fantastic New Studio Album OUT NOW

Created: 14 Aug 2019  / Categories: Ilia Rudman

Long time underground innovator Ilija Rudman returns with "Sagittarii", a fourth fantastic studio album and his second on Bearfunk.

This superb new album lands just a year after his last, "Paradigma", and is another subtle evolution in his style but one that continues to deal in authentic analogue textures with flashes of throwback funk and disco gold and a slick sense of boogie.

This is an album that brims with cosmic disco energy, emotion and excellence from start to finish.

In the words of IDJ magazine "if shiny, synth-tastic nu disco vibes are what you're counting on to see you through the summer, you'll find 'em in abundance here."

You can listen to it and buy your copy right HERE
