Yggdrasil – Dimun [Mike Salta & Mortale remix]

Originally premiered on The Chillout Tent live stream session #5. The official release on digital platforms is 4th Sept 2020 and vinyl 6th Nov 2020

NuNorthern Soul proudly presents Dimun, an overlooked neo-classical / ambient fusion track by Faroe Islands-based producer Kristan Blak’s Yggdrasil project. Label boss ‘Phat’ Phil Cooper was playing G! festival on the Faroe Islands in 2019 and as part of the experience the delegates, artists and DJs where invited to see and experience some of the cultural spots and institutions of the Faroe Islands. One of those was Tutl records owned by Kristian Blak. Tutl records is a wonderful record store and label representing the wealth of amazing Faroese recording talent and has been around for years. tutlrecords.com Kristian invited a few people to his house and he played the piano line of Dimun, Phil recorded it on his phone and could not stop watching it… He eventually contacted Kristian to ask about the music which led to it being licensed for this release.

Music For Imagination – Chris Coco

Chris drops the next in his series of Music For… EPs. This time he takes a more enlivening, electronic approach to spark some imagination.

South London’s finest SONLIFE remixes Coco’s bubbling slow house track Music As A Foreign Language into something deeper and darker. Paul Hartnoll (of the Orbital brothers), Lol Hammond (ex Drum Club) and Coco give us an uplift with a track from their Film Music EP and finally Ibiza-based wunderkind Antonio Prosper brings us down with the perfect Landing. Enjoy and let your mind flow free…

Into Daylight by Cantoma

New music from balearic legend Phil Mison is always highly anticipated and this new album from his Cantoma project is no exception, a sublime slice of shimmering summer beauty. An essential investment, available via Bandcamp here, for digital and if you shop around you might still be able to get one of the very limited gatefold vinyl double packs.

‘The new decade dawns with a message of love and hope from Balearic envoy Phil Mison and his fourth LP under the Cantoma moniker. Joined by old friends and new acquaintances, Señor Misono draws on a lifetime of record collecting, selection and songwriting to pack ‘Into Daylight’ with the essence of the Balearic movement, from the Café del Mar and beyond.

The album features guests Quinn Lamont Luke, Hush Forever, Suad Khalifa, Apres Midi, David Philips and Luna Asteri and was recorded between London and Barcelona.’
