Stratford Ct. releases “Bamboo Beach” by Bonus Points & iamalex
Wow, 28 September has been a hell of a day for new music. We’ve had – what – ten releases today alone, and now here’s a new one from Stratford Ct.! Stratford Ct. was (or I should say “is”) one of the original future funk labels, primarily releasing music by artists like VentureX, Yung Bae, and Lipstick Elite back in the mid-2010s. Although never prolific, they’ve not released much music over the last few years, but we have had a couple new releases in the last two months. Bamboo Beach is a collaborative album between Bonus Points and iamalex. It plays up the future funk stylings of Stratford Ct.’s previous releases, while also incorporating new downtempo trends and a lighter focus on percussion than might be found in either artist’s discography. Choice track is “Iced Macchiato”. Bamboo Beach is available as a pay-what-you-want digital download and for $9 USD on cassette in an edition of fifty.
