richard_norris_freaks_ep_600

Leftfield UK dance stalwart Richard Norris has been in the game since the early days of Acid House, but unlike his peers Andrew Weatherall and Erol Alkan, Norris has maintained (and seemingly purposefully fostered) an air of relative anonymity.
The driving force behind The Grid, The Time & Space Machine and as half of Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve (his collaborative project with Alkan) Norris has …

One half of ambient techno outfit Telefon Tel Aviv, Joshua Eustis started working a new musical project called Sons of Magdalene in response to his father’s cancer diagnosis. Shortly afterward, his Telefon Tel Aviv collaborator Charles W. Cooper III, unexpectedly passed away.
Having been dealt a miserable hand by fate, Eustis spent some time as a touring member of Nine Inch Nails, a band Telefon Tel Aviv …

Seekae – Test & Recognise (Flume Re-work)
In a fairly short period of time, Australian beatmaker Flume has established himself as one of the most consistently exciting artists in electronic music.
I was already a fan of his work, but seeing Flume’s energetic live set at FYF Fest last year made me a true believer.
There’s definitely a “Flume sound” but it’s a spectrum: he can lay …

Erol Alkan’s Rework of Manic Street Preachers

Manic_Street_Preachers_Erol_Alkan_Rework_750_750_90_s

Baroque Welsh glampoppers Manic Street Preachers are one of the most resilient acts to come out of the 90′s.
Perpetual miserablists with unrelentingly bleak lyrics, album art and gnarly history, the Manics make Radiohead’s navel gazing discography seem almost poppy.
In the service of authenticity, their somewhat damaged guitarist (and lyricist) Richey Edwards carved  “4REAL” into his arm with a razor in the middle of an NME interview with Steve Lamacq.
In …

The Acid: Artist You Should Know

the acid

Sometimes the internet really works.
I met artist Steve Nalepa through Twitter. He sent me some music that I loved and I began to play it on the radio. A month or so ago, he sent me his new project, The Acid.
The first song I heard, which you can hear below, is “Fame.”
What I heard is a baseline of electronics, with sweet melodies performed with …

Friday Free For All: LA Pool Party Edition

Regional Garland – “Chillin’ Out” (Poolside Edit)
One of the most striking aspects of Poolside’s debut album, “Pacific Standard Time”, was how fully formed their whole “poolside” ethos was right from the start.
Everything fit a very specific vibe – from the name, their laid back sound, and even down to where they recorded the album (in a studio next to a pool, natch).
“Chillin’ Out” isn’t …

Prins Thomas III: The Return of the Prins

prins-thomas-iii-album

I’m not a fan of fantasy as a genre, per se. The Lord of the Rings trilogy, for example, is a crushing bore. Why anyone would want to watch 9 hours of tracking shots of people walking over snowy peaks is beyond me. But I suppose the take away is that these movies are about the journey, not the destination.
On the cover of his latest …

As part of our Fandom series we have  Porter Robinson telling us about one of his favorite new artists. The Chapel Hill, NC-based eletronic producer will release his highly-anticipated debut album “Worlds” on August 12.
I’ve been listening to what seems to be this emerging micro-scene in Paris – these three artists in particular, Point Point, Nömak, and L’homme aux 4 lettres.
The three artists pretty …

Last week in San Francisco I came across this funny looking new 12″ with art that looked like it was by Philly/NY graffiti legend ESPO Steve Powers.
Upon closer inspection it turned out to be a brand new release on the always flawless Golf Channel label.
Waldemar Schwartz in balloony/sausage letters and 2 wonky track names “La Taza de Oro” and “Krav Maga Girls” with a …

Grimes – “Go”
It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard any new material from Grimes, but with anticipation of her new album growing (tentatively slated for a September 9th release), we were laced with a new track yesterday called “Go“.
DOWNLOAD HERE

The track has a much trappier (for lack of a better term) feel than we’ve heard from Grimes in the past. It’s not …
