It’s an exciting new music Friday for finetunes this week.
It’s the ten year anniversary for Olafur Arnold’s first ever released album Eulogy For Evolution which has received re-master treatment from label fellow Nils Frahm and remix work from the man himself. Written in the early years of his music career with some of the oldest songs dating back to when he was 17, it is a remarkable album which helped to shape the modern neoclassical genre.
We have mentioned him many times over the last few months and with good reason. New Zealand’s Noah Slee finally drops his album Otherland. Noah states “What we were writing was a mixtape so it gave us no boundaries”, no boundries is exactly what you get; electronic, soul and R&B fusion that has underlying layers of quality pop. Featured names on this offering include Simon Mavin and Paul Bender from Haitus Kaiyote, seminal future-soul artist Georgia Anne Mudrow, Shiloh Dynasty, Auckland-based MC Melodownz and Brisbane multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rake.
Shir Khans Black Juke Box series is the gift that keeps on giving. If you are in the mood for some fine disco excellence check out the latest edition which features James Jackson & Siege, Tiptoes and illyus & Barrientos.

Get ready for the 2017 Remastered Anniversary Edition of Ólafur Arnalds Masterpiece!
The voice of Noah Slee drifts from totemic soul to the unfolding limits of pop, slung mist-like between eruptions of digital rhythm. It’s a voice that slips between three continents, that can knot into pure percussion and uncoil into a thread of falsetto in the space of a verse! Noah Slee puts it best: “It’s a truthful representation of where I’m at”
