DJ Gilla compiles Two Syllables Volume Eleven, a free 11-track album featuring highlights and a few exclusives from UK label First Word
The selection, chosen by label boss DJ Gilla, covers the many genres First Word champions, such as jazz, hip hop and neo soul.
Highlights include the mellifluous jazz of Distant Oceans by award-winning Aussie bassist Ross McHenry, Frameworks’ head-nodding instrumental Under Management, and Mr Thing’s jazzy hip-hop break Changes, which is over way too soon.
There’s also neo soul via Sleepin’ Giant’s remix of D’Angelo’s classic Brown Sugar and melodic rap courtesy of UK MC Essa.
You can stream four tracks from the compilation on this page. The rest can be heard and downloaded here.
