Featuring some super-fizzy chords and the soulful voice of London-based singer BIXBY on loop, here is a new track from Julio Bashmore. Released on his own label, Broadwalk Records, 'Kong' is an atmospheric number that is awash with calm waves of synth chords, supported with warm pulses of marimba and a scuttling bustle of percussion throughout. Understated bleepy melodies make their way into the mix towards the end, helping to finish off a what is a progressive and classic-sounding house track.

It's yet another taste of an upcoming debut album from Mr. Bashmore that has not yet appeared despite having been talked about for over a year now. Every song he's released has apparently been taken from it, but when it will appear is anybody's guess. For now, he's also announced that he'll be DJing throughout 2015 – dates at the bottom of this post.
