Kelpe – Dig Up Stupid

Taken from last year’s Microscope Contents, London based beatmaker Kelpe uploaded one of the tracks for you to stream.

I’m absolutely in love with this tune, the 12-inch is greatly missed in my record collection. If you like it, please leave your comment on Kelpe’s SoundCloud page.

Lorn – Cherry Moon

Debut single from Lorn, whose debut album “Nothing Else” will be out on the Brainfeeder label.

The second artist album from Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint is a deep, deep, dark and uncompromising suite of music. The only Brainfeeder artist to neither come from or ever to have lived in LA, Lorn has already developed an international following for his music. Now, with “Nothing Else” the musician and artist reveals his debut full length. Epic, melancholic and brutal, it’s a record which the listener has to be prepared the immerse themselves in.

The album will go on sale on CD, vinyl and digital release. It will go on sale on June 1st, with the U.S. having to wait until June 15, 2010.

Until then, you can download the track above for free from the Ninja Tune website!

Shuanise – Voice of Reason Remixes

Cover Artwork

Last autumn, Baggage for Sale by Shuanise was one of those tracks that had my head spinning for weeks. Following several collaborations and a 7-inch on Eglo Records, she now returns to UpMyAlley with two remixes of her Voice of Reason EP.

Both remixers are taking Shuanise’s soulful music into more electronic territories. The first remix comes from Finnish producer Desto, best known for his work as bleepy dubstep producer.

On the flip you’lll find a remix from UpMyAlley’s latest signing: Paris based beatmaker Powell, who is also responsible for the latest La Mixette.

The Voice of Reason Remixes will be out as digital-only release on April 30, get your copy from Juno Download.

Daedelus – Stampede Me

Taken from his mini-album Righteous Fists of Harmony, this is the official video for “Stampede Me” by Daedelus. The video was directed by Chris Shen.

The album has been out for a month now, you can get it on vinyl or as digital download. Don’t miss!

Katy B & Geeneus – Good Life

Inner City’s 1988 house anthem Good Life is getting a remake by UK funky producer Geeneus featuring Katy B on vocals.

Almost surprisingly, he didn’t burn his fingers on that one, the rework is a pleasant update to the classic. And it’s available for free, you can download it here or there.

Weekend Mixtapes

There were quite a lot of mixtapes this week worth mentioning, so rather than waiting for Monday I’m posting them just in time for the weekend.

Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet has joined Gilles Peterson to record a special podcast in honor of Steve Reid, who passed away recently. Kieran and Steve recorded several albums together, so there are some anecdotes to tell and of course lots of music from Steve.

Another mix full of classics comes from my fellow countryman DJ Nuts, who plays a selection of music from the legendary Arthur Verocai. Take this as a reminder to cop Mochilla’s Timeless DVD box-set.

The latest Resident Advisor podcast features a mix from Dutch dubstep producer Dave Huismans, better known as 2562 or A Made Up Sound.

From the same sonic territories comes Ikonika‘s mix recorded at Hoya Hoya‘s second anniversary.

London’s Warm Music presents another mix from I:Cube (Versatile), as usual you can get it from the SoundCloud page.

And lastly, you should check out the latest Hep Cat Radio show which has a mix from Mweslee.

Take – Incredibright

Only Mountain, the new album from Take, finally started going on sale this week. You can get this digital only release from a couple of online shops, including Boomkat, Bleep and many others.

Also new is this video for the track Incredibright, directed by Green Lab Cinema.

A Romanian Jazz Mix by Hubert Daviz

You know I’m always up for something different, so how about some jazz from Romania for a change?

As I’ve mentioned before, Hubert Daviz‘s upcoming album “Procedure De Rutina” is sampling nothing but Romanian Jazz. So this is just the right thing to get you in the mood for that. The album should be out in May on Melting Pot Music.

No tracklist, just a download!

Four Tet live on KEXP

Almost three months after its release, Kieran Hebden’s There Is Love In You is one of those albums that’s still heavily on rotation on my iPod. Here are three videos of Four Tet performing selected tracks from that album live on Seattle’s KEXP radio.

For those that don’t know, the first track goes by the name of “Angel Echoes”, the second one is the current single “Sing”, which was remixed by Floating Points and Mosca. Track number three is another favourite of mine, a tribute to London’s “Plastic People” club.

Weekly Bits 15/2010

Let’s start the latest weekly bits with a remainder from the previous week. The Roots played enough cover-versions of Dilla Joints to fill an album, but they decided to give those away for free!

Another full-lengtt is available for streaming, it’s Christian Prommer’s Drumlesson Zwei, which is now out on CD and MP3 through !K7.

This week has also saw the release of the anticipated new album from Matthew Herbert, the first in his ONE Trilogy.

The other week I have mentioned a teaser to Behind Closed Doors 2, a documentary on young beatmakers such as K15, FS Green, BUG, Sir OJ and many others. Check out this new and extended trailer.

You have probably seen this article on Information Is Beautiful, as it circulated quite a lot. It’s basically a picture of pie charts showing how much musicians earn on the internet. Quite sad!

Lastly, here are a couple of mixtapes for you. Kyle Hall uploaded his guest-mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’ radioshow. Hoya:Hoya celebrated the launch of their blog with a live-recording from Daedelus. 7even Recordings boss Greg recorded the Modulation Mix with new and exclusive music from the label.

Taylor McFerrin chats with Dego

Centric TV asked New York-born vocalist and beatboxer Taylor McFerrin to do an interview with Dego (4hero, 2000Black), who moved from his home-town London to New York a while back.

They chat about the differences between their cities and the effect that has on their music. Of course, they also talk about the new Silhouette Brown album and how that came about.

While we’re at it, here’s another video from Silhouette Brown’s recent concert in Washington, DC.

José James – The Greater Good

The original is taken from José’s second album Blackmagic, here comes a version of “The Greater Good” produced by French beat honcho Fulgeance. Probably, no hopefully, coming out on Brownswood Recordings soon, make sure you leave some feedback.

In other news, José James and Belgian jazz pianist Jef Neve are currently preparing a new album on Verve Records. Titled “For All We Know”, it will be out on May 11, 2010.
