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

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

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.
Also new is this video for the track Incredibright, directed by Green Lab Cinema.
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!
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.
This week has also saw the release of the anticipated new album from Matthew Herbert, the first in his ONE Trilogy.
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.
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.
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.
