Youtube Surfing With: Capracara

Over the past 5 years or so, London-based producer Capracara has turned out a small but perfectly formed collection of house, disco releases, having his worked picked up by the diverse labels like Soul Jazz, Strictly Rhythm and DFA, and more recently Fine Art Recordings, as his mixture of stepping mid-90’s dance inflections and studio prowess have caught the ears of producers like Distal, Cage & Aviary and now UK bass figure Unknown To The Unknown.

With Unknown To The Unknown’s own UTTU label releasing his latest slice of discoid convulsions ‘Silvia Solar’ this week, we asked Capracara to put together a Youtube playlist for us, where you’ll find the likes of Krystal Klear, Funkineven, Maya Jane Coles, Lory D and more.

1. Funkineven – ‘Roland’s Jam’

“Monster tune from one of my favourite producers at the moment.”

2. Krystal Klear – ‘Tried For Your Love (Hudson Mohawke Remix)’

“Hudson Mohawke remixes the original into a vintage UR / Steve Silk-style, loose-house jam – love it!”

3. Jon Convex – ‘Falling Again’

“Curious, yet hugely infectious garage / house mutations from one half of Instra:mental.”

4. The Count & Sinden – ‘Future (Canblaster Remix)’

“Brilliant remix that sounds like Mr. Oizo meets mid-90’s MAW – genius.”

5. Fredi Michel – ‘Enganami (Broke Remix)’

“Love what Matias and Marcus (as Broke) have done to this!”

6. Lory D – ‘Acid Prastix’

“Lory D on numbers – beyond exciting.”

7. Tropic Of Cancer – ‘A Color’

“Proto-goth / industrial masterstroke from Mendez and familiar.”

8. Lone – ‘Re-Schooling’

“Can’t get enough of this one – love the tempo.”

9. Blawan – ‘Getting Me Down’

“Everyone’s played it and everyone’s charted it. Deservedly so.”

10. Maya Jane Coles – ‘Little One’

“Wicked vintage UR-style techno from Maya Jane!”
