[Audio] Julio Bashmore’s ‘She Ain’t’


Julio Bashmore shot by Spiros Politis

Bristolian House master Julio Bashmore’s eagerly awaited début artist album, Knockin’ Boots, is out right now if you fancy the vinyl, or on the 7th digitally. We’ve already checked out bits and bobs from it; Simple Love, Kong, Holding On, and now we’ve got another new one in the lead up to Friday’s release. Most of Julio’s tracks are solid House tunes peppered with a little extra genre spice and She Ain’t is no different,. Listen up.

Flinging the French Touch, She Ain’t is a pounding House tune that revolves around a cheeky Disco loop. Riding the vintage hook is a juggernaut kick drum and chopped up vocal samples either spitting a mantra or having their warbling turned into a hypnotic drone. This one nicely straddles the line between infectiously funky and compellingly stompy. The frantic hats just add to the track’s forward momentum. The album should be cracking!

[Audio] Julio Bashmore reMixes Disclosure’s ‘Holding On’



Last month the Disclosure dropped Holding On, the first single from their forthcoming new album Caracal. Featuring vocals from Grammy award winning singer Gregory Porter the track is a warm and glowing slice of UK Deep House. This tune has now been given a relentless dancefloor reMix by Bristolian producer Julio Bashmore. Most likely for slated for a forthcoming reMix single, ‘cos there’s no way this track and stay unreleased.

Bashmore takes his time building up hypnotic groove based on undulating loops. Contrasting the reMixes rumbling baseline and knife edge hook with Porter’s comfortable and soulful vocal makes for an intoxicating six minutes. Loaded with a classic build, and groove you can get lost in, this track is summer festival gold and not to be confused with Bashmore’s own Holding On.

[Audio] Julio Bashmore’s ‘Holding On’



Bristolian production heavyweight Julio Bashmore is finally gearing up for the release of his début artist album. Announced last week the LP, called Knockin’ Boots, is due to be released in July and will feature recent smashes Simple Love, Rhythm Of Auld and Kong alongside a host of new material. Check out the new single from the forthcoming album. This is Holding On.

Bashmore explored his Disco side on Holding On. Mixing a little French Touch and Nu-Disco into his House sound. Sam Dew’s understated and soulful vocals glide like silk over a filtered, funky loop that undulates until it’s almost hypnotic. With cheeky little dips and  nice transitions between it’s funky, sample based bars, Julio keeps things compelling throughout. A very nice teaser for the album indeed.

[Audio] Julio Bashmore’s ‘Kong’



The new one from Bristol House guru Julio Bashmore is a awesome taster of what to expect from his forthcoming album. The long player is due sometime later this month, but until then the man has dropped an exceedingly classy slick of West Country House that features vocals from London based singer Bixby (from synth funk juggernaut Arkon Fly) providing some silky tones. This is Kong.

Kong is a deep and involving tune that it’s easy to sink into. Warm tones with a warehouse vibe thread throughout the track, riding a cowbell heavy rhythm, lending Kong a comfortable, kinda’ summer nights, groove. Bixby’s vocals are reminiscent of 80s Soul singers and the mood works perfectly with the relaxed sounds. At one exhilarating and laid back, this bodes well for the album.

Julio Bashmore’s new album is due to drop this month on Broadwalk Records.

Bristol House guru Julio Bashmore’s forthcoming new album is set to drop early next year. The first single from the upcoming record will be Simple Love, a tune featuring the vocal talents of J’Danna. Premièring on Annie Mac’s show this past weekend, the tune is sure to mop up the remains of Festival season and destroy club dancefloors well into winter.

Loaded with Bashmore’s trademark booming basslines, Simple Love is an intoxicating five minutes of laid back beats and bass. Appropriately titled, the track is deceptively simple with a sparse groove and hypnotic repetition that draws you into it’s filtered goodness. J’Danna’s husky vocals adds a little spice to the mix as part of a track that never once tried too hard to be anything. It just simply is.
