It’s been quiet about Dim Grimm (aka Dimlite) for some time, and so far I blamed the recording of his Cite album for it. However, only yesterday I found about his new Dym Quell Holo alias, but then again that’s a different story. Today, the official Dim Grimm is back with an interpretation of Dorian Concept’s “The Sky Opposite”, taken from last year’s Joined Ends album.
Ninja Tune is about to release the official Joined Ends Remix EP in late April, featuring Tim Hecker’s interpretation of the same track. In the meantime, Dim’s take is available for free download!
Following the self-titled debut and last year’s Zootie, Will Bankhead’s Trilogy Tapes is about to release a new Rezzett 12-inch towards the end of next week. You might remember we already shared the track Twizzta some weeks back, but the targeted release date was pushed back until now. Should you decide to order your copy directly from the TTT shop, you might also be interested in the Rezzett Live cassette.
K15 is on fire! Following last year’s excellent Bordeaux and Insecurities, the London-based producer inaugurates Kyle Hall’s new label No Room For Air with a 7-inch release. Already listed as sold-out on the label shop, you can pre-order your copy from Juno or Rush Hour. Big up Boiler Room for the premiere.
Of all the tracks on Dorian Concept‘s Joined Ends, one could argue that “The Sky Opposite” shares a lot of emotion with Tim Hecker‘s music. From that perspective I find it interesting to hear what the latter made of his remix, or that he even picked the track. Anyway, earlier today Ninja Tune revealed the release of the Joined End Remix EP , which also includes remixes by Kuedo, Nathan Fake, Bibio and Redinho, the last one being a digital exclusive.
Still a while to go until you can pick this up at your favourite record store, the remix EP will be out in late April. Pre-orders available from the NinjaShop and iTunes.
Following Steven Hall’s Arthur’s Landing project on SoundCloud, I probably heard more reworks of Arthur Russell‘s material than most people should. At least that’s what I thought until this track surfaced on my feed today. From what I make of the sparse information coming with it, this might or might not be an early (or stripped down) version of 1982’s “Clean on Your Bean”, which was released in version #1. In any case, the producer of the of the original, Peter Gordon, appears to have given his blessing on this as it will be part of a release called “Arthur Russell’s Instrumentals Directed by Peter Gordon”. There should be more information available before it comes out this April on London’s foom label.
It’s been a while we last heard from our man in Hamburg, the DJ and producer B-Ju hasn’t put out new music since last summer’s Merianplatz EP. For his return, he teamed up with Berlin-based rising star Ticklish and together they’re releasing a 6-track cassette on Apothecary Compositions.01. B-Ju & Ticklish – Dualities
02. B-Ju & Ticklish – Red Vines
03. B-Ju – Kids On Fire
04. B-Ju – Kids On Fire (Ticklish Remix)
05. Ticklish – Jealousy
06. Ticklish – Jealousy (B-Ju Remix)
Listen to a full track above before you pre-order your copy directly from the label. Titled “Dualities”, the tape and download will be out on February 23, 2015.
British drummer and percussionist Nick Woodmansey aka Emanative shared his take on Pharoah Sanders’ “Hum Allah Hum Allah Hum Allah”, which is to appear on his forthcoming album co-released by the Steve Reid Foundation and Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings. The original recording was part of the 1969 album Jewels Of Thought and featured musicians of the calibre of Lonnie Liston Smith, Roy Haynes, Leon Thomas and Idris Muhammed.
The Emanative album isn’t shy of quality collaborators either, guest musicians include Four Tet & Floating Points, Rocketnumbernine, Finn Peters or Ahmed Abdullah. Set for a release in March, you can pre-order your copy of “The Light Years Of The Darkness” on Bandcamp.
Originally released as part of the Beatport-exclusive Project: Mooncircle compilation, New York’s KRTS just put his remix for My Panda Shall Fly & Mau’lin on his SoundCloud page. The compilation came out in November 2014 and is a cross section through the label’s back catalogue, the remix one of its few exclusive tracks. You can listen to the original version on 2014’s Push EP.
In other My Panda Shall Fly related news, there’s a full album —titled Too— coming out on Project: Mooncircle in April 2015.
Three years after the release of his mixtape “1999”, Brooklyn-based rapper Joey Bada$$ celebrates the release of “B4.DA.$$”, his long-awaited and first proper album. But that’s not the only thing to celebrate for Joey this week, as today marks also his birthday. On the occasion he shares a free download, another track produced by Statik Selektah.
“B4.DA.$$” is available on iTunes, Amazon or Spotify.
Four years have passed since these tracks were recorded at various Caribou live shows in Belgium and the UK, now Dan Snaith is selling them for a good cause. What makes this EP stand out is the line-up involved in the Caribou Vibration Ensemble: Four Tet and James Holden on synthesizers, Ahmed “Sinkane” Gallab on drums, a three piece brass section, flutist, and Dan Snaith himself on vocals, synth and electric guitar.
Available on Bandcamp for $3 (or more) with all proceeds going to Gendered Intelligence.
Nectarines is the b-side of of Nuits Sonores and the EP holding both tracks is available digitally as of today, with the vinyl release following next week. You can pick up the download from the Eglo Bandcamp, Bleep, iTunes and maybe the digital store of your choice. Pre-orders for the vinyl at the former two stores include an instant download!
Following NameBrandSounds‘ debut EP on Technicolour was followed by several remixes by the duo consisting of IG Culture and Alex Phountzi. One of them was the remix for Ill Blu‘s Blu Magic, which —I think— was never properly released.
Well, as of today you can grab a free download from the NameBrandSound Bandcamp page. Enjoy!
Will Bankhead’s Trilogy Tapes label has put out plenty of good music in 2014, I counted more than two dozens of 12-inches alone (plus mixtapes and collaborative releases!) But since the year isn’t quite over yet, watch out for more to come. Next in the pipeline is another one from Rezett, his third on the label following Zootie EP from earlier this year.
Listen to a first track in the player above before TTT032 lands in all good record stores on December 18, 2014!
Say hello to a new track from Floating Points, who continues to release EPs rather than treating us with some bigger work. But let’s don’t take the second half of the previous sentence too serious, if that was a complaint it was clearly on a very high level. The Eglo Records co-founder has won my heart since his very first releases, each shining for its high quality productions. This new one continues in that tradition, as you can hear for yourself.
The digital release will be out as soon as December 8, with the vinyl shipping a couple of days before Christmas. Choose the format of your liking from the Eglo Bandcamp store.
Earlier this week, the new Doc Daneeka EP “From Mine To Mistress” was released on his own Ten Thousand Yen label. Two of the tracks feature rising star Seven Davis Jr. on vocal duties, one of them being the lush I Promise. Unfortunately, the Kon (of Kon & Amir fame) edit you can hear above is not part of package, so you have to stick with the stream taken from his SoundCloud page.
