BEAT LE JUICE:  So Much StyleNew Scour signing, Beat Le Juice, is a man whose USP appears to be combining the glitchy sounds of now with the G-funk of yore marrying, as he does, squelches, bleeps and – well – glitches with so-smooth beats on this four-tracker. What to call such an entity though? So Much Style perhaps? That should do it. Expect plenty of Rhodes piano along with ‘blink and you’ll miss ’em’ chopped-up

KIBOSH: Back N Forth EP (2017)

KIBOSH:  Back N Forth EP“On the Bass Funk Glitch Hip Hop Soul Breaks tip,” it says on Kibosh’s Soundcloud with no word of a lie. Has he got his fingers in enough stylistic musical pies!?

Omitting the word ‘swing’ was something of an oversight for example – given the abandon with which he sprinkles samples of said music throughout his
