Volta Cab Is Feeling Good.

You might have heard of this guy before. Volta Cab is a Russian house / new disco producer. He describes his musical influences to be mostly based on the 70s and 80s disco scene, on chicago house and on jazz music.

His music has been in the blogosphere for a couple of months and now Volta Cab has a couple of  12″ releases coming up. One to be released on Chez Damier’s Finale Sessions France, another one on Maelstrom’s Solar Disco and some on others labels. Quite a busy man.

Once you listen to the tracks below, you’ll know why these great labels are quite lucky to have this new producer on their roster.

TM Exclusive – Jamie Grind

I haven’t been sure how to usher in fall here at Trash, but fortunately the transition landed in my inbox in a rather timely and unexpected manner, such as seasons often do.

Earlier this summer we shined some light on rapidly ascending Leeds producer Jamie Grind, whose Sonic Router mix came shortly after his first release, an auspicious split EP with producer Gon on the well-executed Infrasonics label.

In addition to his own production work Jamie plays host to the UK underground at his monthly Modulate party along with co-host Louis Saville. Former guests include UK bass hopefuls like XXXY and Hackman, both of whom released stellar records this year on Fortified Audio and PTN respectively.

Not only will you find some exclusive dubs from the likes of XXXY, but new material from Jamie himself, Darling Farah, Mista Men, and The Phantom. Don’t the let the mix’s rainy opener damper your spirits, this mix is an excellent snapshot of the rising UK producers Jamie Grind his surrounding himself with and a foreshadow of Jamie’s rightful place in a stalwart collection of new artists to watch.

Chico Mann – Analog Drift

I apologize for not connecting with all of you more recently. My life has changed in the last couple weeks, including a move to San Francisco for a hot second before I make my exodus to New York City, and even a new job!

Straight from the man like Nate Mars (producer, PR, taste-maker) comes a project from Chico Mann aka Marcos Garcia, a Cuban-born musician based in New York who has toured with the likes of Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, plays a multitude of instruments, and makes music that draws on everything from Hip-Hop and Electro to 30′s years of Afro-Cuban musical intersection.

Out on October 23rd is Chico’s first full-length Analog Drift for the esteemed Wax Poetics label and here are two cuts from the record. The first, “Go to the Place” takes (real) electro’s bounce and uses it as a jump off for Afrobeat guitar strokes that get extra funky when a bubbling synth creeps in after the chorus. The second track, “Ya Yo Sé” continues with Chico’s love of soul, funk and Afrobeat, building on the warmth of the first song with a song about love and longing.

I highly recommend that you check out Chico live. He has just returned from Australia and is out on the road in the U.S. beginning next week. Tour dates and free tunes are below!!

10.20 The New Parish Oakland
10.21 The Elbo Room San Francisco
10.22 330 Ritch San Francisco
10.23 The Mint Los Angeles
10.24 Little Temple Los Angeles
10.27 Santos Party House NYC
10.28 The Vagabond Miami
10.29 The Mink Backroom Houston
10.30 The Scoot Inn Austin

I’ll be checking in with you all soon, hopefully with more notes from the underground.

Chico Mann – Go To That Place

Chico Mann – Ya Yo Sé
