XLR8 bring us a free download from Mind On Fire favourite Blacksmif.



“Getting support from such luminaries as Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs is no small feat, and the work of London producer Blacksmif doesn’t rely upon a simple formula. Swiping jazz progressions and longing vocals from vintage sources and re-assembling them to create a laid-back stepper’s rhythm complete with congas is one way of beginning to describe Blacksmif’s work on “Golden Horn,” but when listening to this unreleased tune, it’s the sumptuous sum of these disparate parts that hits hardest.”

Check out Blacksmifs remix of Paper Tigers illuminated out on Mind on Fire Records.
