Ben Khan - 1992 EP
Werkha - Tempo Tempo
"Tempo Tempo" taken from my first Tru Thoughts release:
24th March 2014 brings the “Beacons” EP, the debut release on Tru Thoughts from rising producer Werkha, who was snapped up by the label in late 2013 having been championed by Quantic and Gilles Peterson. In another gold seal of approval from on high, Werkha has just been confirmed as the support act for Bonobo on the leftfield luminary’s European Tour
With five unshakable tracks that fizz with energy, mixing up the tempos and blending nuanced live instrumentation with grin-inducing and eminently danceable beats and melodies, “Beacons” is sure to see Werkha rising further up the ones-to-watch lists, after a big 2013 which saw his reputation spread swiftly.

Mikos Da Gawd - Shake feat. Tele Fresco
Six white labels in and we’re excited to present San Francisco native, Mikos Da Gawd, on this installation. DJ & producer, Mikos pulls inspiration from early 2000’s neosoul and energy from his live sets.
The name Mikos Da Gawd is a mixture of humor and power as Da Gawd takes control over your ears with the emotionally driven and sometimes nostalgic samples in his productions.
His White Label is a funky, bouncy, dynamic musical ride laced with familiar soundbytes as well as collaborations with Mr. Carmack and Tele Fresco.

Beats Unraveled #8 by Binkbeats - Shlomo’s “Places”
Binkbeats is an artist from the Netherlands whose covers of current artists such as Baths, Amon Tobin and Flying Lotus have gotten him accolades online. They’re not just your ordinary cover - he performs them live in one take, with his ultimate aim being to hunt down the songs’ sounds as closely as possible; and he consistently succeeds in putting his own creative spin on them.
