Listen Back to Loops + Dots Episode 5 – New Music from Loyle Carner & Sampha, Szjerdene, Reginald Omas Mamode IV – Special Guests: The Cinematic Orchestra
Show number 5!
The fifth installment of my Loops + Dots radio show on Dublab aired brand new audio excellence from Loyle Carner & Sampha, Szjerdene, and Reginald Omas Mamode IV.
This week we also welcomed the mighty Cinematic Orchestra to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where artists, DJs, and music aficionados tell the story behind their favorite tracks and explain what these songs mean to them.
Jason, Dom, and I talked about how the Cinematic Orchestra got started, bonding over house music, Ninja Tune in the early 90s, writing emotional music, the microgenres of drum ‘n’ bass, why genius doesn’t exist, how LA and the surrounding desert inspires them, finding musicians in New York coffee shops, and the groove of Pantera.
Here’s how we believed every day in motion.
Szjerdene – “Common Ground”
Reginald Omas Mamode IV – “In Search of Balance”
Emancipator & 9 Theory – “Zula”
Loyle Carner & Sampha – “Desoleil (Brilliant Corners)”
The Cinematic Orchestra – “Wheel Within A Wheel”
