Max Cooper was my man of the year for 2011 . And he's had another good year this year - appearing almost monthly on this blog. To celebrate, he's giving away (until 3 Jan) this collaboration with The Slow Revolt. This matches Max's clattering beats, and some drone, with rich pop vocals. A bit like Orbital's collaboration with David Gray on Illuminate . Thank you! …for all your listens and support and coming to events and voting and general good vibes [...]
Cadeau de fin d'année de la part de Max Cooper , « Only You » nous permet d'entendre la merveilleuse voix de The Slow Revolt . Un titre doux qui glisse tout seul en cette période hivernale et qui sortira courant 2013. Je rappelle que Max Cooper fera une petite tournée française au mois de janvier en passant entre autre par Paris, Lyon et Marseille. Attention à vous, le téléchargement libre du morceau ne fonctionnera plus à partir du 3 janvier 2013. Max [...]
Des remixes, des covers, des edits, l'année 2012 a été tout aussi riche en titre original qu'en version intermédiaire, qui parfois dépasse le morceau qui l'a inspiré. Voici une sélection des remixes, covers et edits qui ont marqué l'équipe de We Are The Mascotte . N'hésitez pas à partager avec nous vos coups de coeur ! Sylvain 1. Goose - Synrise (Soulwax Remix) 2.

Max Cooper is a U.K.-based producer who has been building quite a reputation for himself over the last few years by releasing a wide variety of EPs and -- more recently -- touring the globe extensively. Max's latest offering sees him teaming up with Montreal's acclaimed psychedelic pop outfit Braids . The EP, entitled Conditions One, was a collaborative effort between the two entities, in which Max obtained many of the band's old vocal recordings to assemble new sounds that reflect the strengths of Max as a producer and the more ambient palettes of the vocal [...]
Rising UK electronica star Max Cooper has collaborated with Canada’s intellectual art-rockers Braids on a 2-part EP named Conditions One . The 1st of a set of upcoming releases from Cooper examining the human condition, Conditions One will be the 1st release on new electronica label called Fields & is accompanied by evocative + indelicate remixes by hotly tipped northern UK acts Ghosting Season & D/R/U/G/S. The human condition is a well-examined idea – but as an ex-genetics researcher with a PhD, Cooper takes a somewhat aslant look at [...]
Producer Max Cooper has been collaborating with Braids (a personal favourite of mine) on his latest track. Titled Pleasures, it's an amalgam of intricate production and drawn out vocals, it's music that literally pulsates as if it had a life of its own. Below is the stunning official video; created by Belgian animator Cédric de Smedt:
Just two days ago, Max Cooper released his single "Pleasures," which features the vocals of one of this favorite bands BRAIDs. This track is going to be the first from his EP of the same name, for which the artist has attempted to produce something 'positive and warming, with nice straightforward drums and nothing too harsh in terms of builds and drops, just a delicate flow to give a pleasurable listening experience. Apparently, Upside favorite D/R/U/G/S has been asked to get on remixing duty of the song, and it seems the UK producer also tried to put together a listening [...]
Voilà ce que cela donne quand Max Cooper s'associe au célèbre graphiste Chute de Strings . Dans la même optique que ses visuels fixes, Chute de Strings aka Cedric de Smedt, se mets à l'animation. Une vidéo avec un style décalé bien à lui, ( petit clin d'oeil ) CDS appartient à un univers qui colle parfaitement avec le minimalisme de Max Cooper.

Max Cooper ft. Braids | Pleasures It takes a strong pull to welcome me back into the arms of Braids . Their debut album is still a work of unparalleled beauty, but nothing comes close to this: Max Cooper , enlivening Raphaelle Standell-Preston’s vocals to the point of no return. Direct, intended to energise, it’s a combination of two of my favourite artists, so I couldn’t leave it alone. via. Dots and Dashes
It is, in its essence, one of those simplest of pleasures when two of the more expressive, and indeed progressive forces in experimentalia combine. That's what we've got for your baying ears right here, as London-based electronica stalwart Max Cooper (still more or less fresh from his thoroughly refreshing Amalgamations "EP" of yesteryear ) intertwines his visionary fabrics with the dulcet sweetnesses of Calgary, Alberta's all-pervasively beloved starlets, BRAIDS . An introductory glimmer into Cooper's forthcoming extended play, entitled Fields , Pleasures is instantaneously just that in the singular though [...]

Max Cooper, a UK producer recently named #13 on Resident Advisor 's top live acts of the year, is joining forces with Canadian band Braids for the first EP release off a new label named FIELDS. The Conditions One EP explores the concept of the human condition, speaking about two greatly different topics in the tracks "Automaton" and "Pleasures." "Automaton," the track we'll be sharing with you today, is "an attempt to show how humans are essentially deterministic, trapped in a set of predictable reactions to their environment, their upbringing, their lives." The track is a glitchy [...]
D/R/U/G/S is the project of one Callum Wright and D/R/U/G/S craft some of the most euphoric, radical new music around. His debut single for Different Recordings `The Source of Light,`a gorgeous techno masterpiece, features remixes from Daniel Avery and Max Cooper and is out now. The official video was also released - and this video is a beautiful testament to the quality of his work and to the fact that this guy really appreciates the art behind what he does. Buy the release on Beatport here. [...]
Those of you who are familiar with the London-based techno producer Max Cooper, be prepared to hear a whole new side of him. Mixing up D/R/U/G/S’ new single “The Source of Light,” Cooper takes you on polar opposite journey, one that you have never previously seen. Cooper gathers the eerily euphoric aspects of the original, and incorporates the wild dance side D/R/U/G/S brought to get down. Bluntly put, we love it. I'd watch the video first and then the remix. Let us know your thoughts. Both tacks are pretty heavy.

These playlists always take me quite a while. It's not easy finding 5 great downtempo songs at the snap of a thumb...but I guess that's where we're trying to make your lives easier :) Hopefully the hard work paid off on this one. It includes some awesome tracks by Bonobo, Sigur Ros, Max Cooper and more. For me, this one matches the crisp autumn air quite perfectly. Image credit: Autumn by Ramon Peco [...]
