A 18 track alternative rap/hip-hop ep (29m 19s) — released April 7th 2017 on Shapes of Rhythm

Cariño is BodyMoves' most ambitious release to date. An 18 track beat tape that contains a diverse mixture of beats crafted over the last four years. This dust coated voyage draws on global inspirations and rhythms, refusing to be tied down to any specific sound or style. The EP takes cues from South America, Europe, Asia and Africa, classic soul, jazz, funk, library music and obscure TV audio into a 28 minute long beat journey. The album title was inspired by the birth of the artist's son in April 2016.

The music has respectful nods towards a diverse range of beatmakers, from Al Dobson Jr. to Flying Lotus to Tuamie and has been mastered by Will Horrocks of LV fame. The stunning artwork is a specially commissioned piece by artist Emily Evans. Emily has previously designed artwork for Paul White, Mr Beatnick and Broshuda.

Cassette releases are enjoying a renaissance of late, and true to hip hop culture this beat tape will be released on a strictly limited run of 50 blood red cassettes, and also includes a digital download.

"Cariño" follows up on BodyMoves' recent collaborative EP "Dual Thought" with Tom Central. Both are released on Shapes Of Rhythm Records, a burgeoning label he runs himself, alongside Tom.

BodyMoves has been rising steadily on the scene over the last few years. Known for his eclectic beats and DJ sets, his releases have gained support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Josey Rebelle, Taro (Jazzy Sport), DJ Gilla and Dom Servini.
