“Both tracks are cool, but the standout jam ‘Sunset Strip’ (Original Mix) is a serious head nodder!”

“Nice downtempo groove”
HIPPIE TORRALES (MOTOWN / UNIDISC / TURNTABLE ORCHESTRA)

The third EP from Thylacinus on Cosmic Elements is a beautiful lounge/chillhop/old school hip hop two tracker entitled ‘Roll Another One’. The artwork, titles and sound should explain what this release is all about.

The first track ‘Sunset Strip’ has that west coast feel but rather than being about the place of the same name, it is more to do with the feel of the track and the sexy bass line conjuring up thoughts of things happening as the sun goes down. Ethereal keys, funk infused guitar and beats as well as that sexy bass line make it all possible. The ‘B Side’ entitled ‘Portland Stoned’ is a multi-layered pun name, which is for the listener to work out as there is more than one Portland in the world, however, the track itself is a dreamy atmospheric beauty with a deep subby bass which shows exactly why the overall release has the title that it does.

The influence for this EP started for Thylacinus over 20 years ago and now it finally comes to fruition, adding to an already consistent and growing discography, with a vinyl album release on the way before the close of 2022.

The 19th release on Cosmic Elements is a Thylacinus rework of Tom Conrad & Mr V’s ‘Sign Of The Times’, which was originally released on Adaptation Music.

Thylacinus pulls out all the stops to rework ‘Sign Of The Times’ into a summery Cafe Del Mar track, with a fusion of jazz, old school hip hop, a dub reggae style bass line and dreamy, atmospheric keys and pads. Originally released as a house track almost a decade ago with several versions, ‘Sign Of The Times’ contains a message that is still as relevant today as it was then.

A very familiar name on the scene, Mr V started out with Masters At Work and has gone on to become a household name as a hip house vocalist, producer and DJ, gracing the likes of Defected, Strictly Rhythm, Vega Records, Dessous and numerous others.

Thylacinus has released several EPs on Cosmic Elements already and has singles alongside Da Funksta on the TOSNC label, with a vinyl album release due in August, also alongside Da Funksta.

Thylacinus returns to Cosmic Elements with his second solo EP which is a smooth jazz and funk inspired three tracker including two west coast hip hop gems, entitled ‘Perceptions EP’.

The opening track ‘Open Your Mind And Realise’ is a warm, soul inspired, thought provoking groove with funk laden beats and leads you into a place that you don’t want to leave; it certainly gets across the message of the EP title. Next up is the hard hitting ‘They Respect Nothing’ which takes you right back to mid 80s L.A with its funk layered infectious late night vibes. Closing the EP is ‘Avenue View’, all puns intended, with a driving bass line and and guitar lick leading up to some smooth soul interludes and completing another fine EP from Thylacinus.

Thylacinus is the alias of Tom Conrad who is currently better known within the realms of house music, however with his early influences of funk, jazz, soul and 80s hip hop it was inevitable he’d take this path at some point. Look out for more singles and an album from Thylacinus over the next few months along with music alongside his friend and top artist Da Funksta (The Old Skool the New Class).
