Since undertaking their colossal Knife Party side project, Gareth McGrillen and Rob Swire have outdone nearly every other producer in the business with their massive, riot-inducing productions. From 100% No Modern Talking to Rage Valley , each four track EP they've put out has been nothing short of momentous. After months of anticipation and countless delays, their third EP has finally been released. Click past the break for a track by track review. "Power Glove" is the EP's opener, and a fitting one at [...]
El DJ y productor irlandés Marcus Lambkin está de regreso con su proyecto Shit Robot para presentar " Feels Real ", nuevo single editado por el prestigioso sello de New York DFA Records . Lambkin no se prodiga mucho en la producción pero cuando lo hace es porque algo bueno tiene entre manos. Tras presentar el pasado año " [...]
Whether you perceive daft Californian dance-punks !!! to be nothing but deranged practitioners of a funked up pastiche, busily recomposing bits and pieces of euphoric histories past – post-punk revivalism; those more accessible entries in the annals of Warp Records; hedonistic '90s raves and whatnot; their own, even – or saviours of some indefinable other altogether, they're ever jesters worth sparing a smirk or two. And with this, the year's first truly stimulatingly titled LP, Nic Offer et al. strive to reinsert the fun back into the somewhat restrained funk renaissance of recent times. [...]
Mixmag Mix Of The Week: French Fries & Bambounou
The last time Defected Records put out a Yousef track was November 2012 and it was "Beg," a song (along with Hot Since 822s remix) that topped Beatport charts for far longer than anyone could have anticipated. Now, Simon Dunmore's label is back with another promising cut from the Liverpudlian Circus Recordings main man and a dirty little edit from Polish favorites Catz 'n Dogz. Where the original excels in a smooth vocal track and relaxing melodies, the edit makes use of squelching bass lines and a trippy top line. Less emotion, more dancing. Purchase: [...]
FCL – It’s You (Flashmob Remix) One of the most infectious tracks of late gets a remix treatment from our favorite Italian duo. We are of course referring to Flashmob, who are easily one of the most instantly recognizable production teams in the business . The acid sound that frequents their tracks has particularly caught our attention and it stands out yet again in this remix of FCL’s ‘It’s You’. The original has reached anthemic status and it’s crazy to think that it was first released as a limited 150 12” singles last year. Chicago legend Larry [...]
I'm going to go ahead and thank Unthank Records for this one. The Firecracker sub-label has just released the genre-ammalgamating sounds of Australian producer Paul Graham, aka Booshank . His EP 5 presents some deliciously raw psychedelic acid techno that actually gave me goosebumps on the first listen. It isn't what you'd expect from what appears to be a background of funk edits (which are also worth checking out). Feel free to go hard [...]
NT89 Rara Aves DJ Set A very good mix. Straight to the point.
Os Primal Scream regressam em 2013 trazendo desde já mais um novo single em carteira. Depois de "2013", agora é a vez de "It's Alright, It's OK", single este que mostra mais um pouco do que poderá ser o novo álbum da banda, 'More Light', a sair no próximo mês de Maio. Se existe banda que não é conformista, os Primal Scream são exemplo disso já que não se servem unicamente do seu glorioso
Mr. Beatnick – Savannah EP From the beginning it felt like Don’t Be Afraid and Mr. Beatnick were a perfect match. Where the former aims to be a home where artists can explore multiple angles of their sound, the latter is a bold hip hop turned house/techno producer who isn’t afraid to take risks. It was almost inevitable that when the two forces met, the results would turn heads. The latest release on the London label is Mr. Beatnick’s Savannah EP. It contains 4 old-school sounding tracks that each have [...]
Alex Metric returns to the release circuit with the latest iteration of him Ammunition EP series. Unlike Part 2 , which was evenly split between original productions and remixes, Part 3 is 100% Metric. Our praise for Alex Metric 's presence in the studio is well-deserved - with every new release his sound continues to develop while still maintaining an easily identifiable style, one that challenges the traditional confines of genres. Dabbling in electro and techno with disco flairs and dub-fueled breaks, Alex has once again delivered an undefinable 4-track offering driven by electro quirks [...]
El productor italiano de Tulioxi regresa de nuevo al sello de Alexander Robotnick, Hot Elephant Music , con un nuevo EP 'The Old Radio Show', esta vez un EP basado en novela negra y poemas, y con su fuerte influencia por las música de los 80s, para abrir el EP tenemos la delicia de 'Nin', una composición musical de Acid-Tech-House y la narración de unos poemas de Anais Nin, maravillosa composición; para 'Rick and Ilsa' se ha tomado la inspiración en la mítica Casablanca, con unos profundos analógicos, y [...]

I posted about this mix on facebook recently, so, I've made the executive decision to simply copy that status verbatim rather than re-iterate it on here...cool? T here are a handful of DJ mixes that changed my life. One of the most important ones is Unclassics by Morgan Geist (a mixed CD compilation) which came out the year I did my leaving cert. Alex Bradley put me on to Metro Area around this time, who Geist makes up 50% of. Anyway, by around 2005/6 [...]

Tras su último EP " Split ", la banda de Moscú regresa con un renovado sonido, sonando más [...]
The Epic Oldskool Journey mix series is my attempt to archive a period of music that I find particularly innovative, but also one that holds much sentimental value. The first two Journeys focused more on specific time periods - Part 1 being dominated by acid house, bleep and rave; Part 2 much more focused on UK breakbeat aka 'ardcore. I also tried to limit both of those to more esoteric songs from my collection, although some floorfillers were included. Part 3, quite possibly the last of these, I dub the "anthem" episode, as it definintely has its share [...]
