I don’t even remember the last talk about Dim Grimm’s “Cite” album, it has been way too long. The Swiss producer formerly known as Dimlite hasn’t updated the videos from that session in more than two years. I’m a patient guy, I can wait. If you’re not of the patient kind, I’ve got good news for you: Dim Grimm just uploaded a new EP to his Bandcamp page, his first official release in manyyears. That’s five tracks for only €4, do I need to say more? Go and buy this!
And if you missed it before, check out that Dim Grimm mixtape from earlier this year.
While there’s still no sign of “Cite”, the new album by Dim Grimm (formerly Dimlite), we’re happy aboutany activity from our favourite Swiss producer. It’s been about a year since he shared his interpretation of Dorian Concept’s The Sky Opposite, but this weekend he uploaded a new mixtape called “From it / To it”, which seemingly contains a new track.Messiaen – Introduction to Turangalila
Yuji Nomi – Procession of the cat king
Iannis Xenakis – Orient-Occident
The Trees Community – Psalm 42
Jake Holmes – Did you know
Erik Satie – Gnossienne 3
Fadimoutu Wallet Inamoud – Yelalela
Dim Grimm – Unity
SQURL, not Squirrel – Spooky Action at a Distance
John Barry – Capsule in space
Go straight ahead and grab the download on his website!
In a recent post, Oli Marlow of underground music blog Sonic Router announced his “retirement” from writing (uhm, or something like that), focusing on the label side of the brand. The label achieved to release an impressive body of work in last three years or so, and continues perform strong.
Their latest release “Outlines” is the work of designer-by-day Broshuda, 10 tracks of deep electronic music, featuring a collaboration with label mate B£AMS and Dimlite.01. Altar
04. Decoy Unit (Skit)
06. Champagne (Skit)
07. Celebrity Skin
08. I Never Had A Sega
10. Show Me The Way (Outro) ft. B£AMS & Dimlite
Available from Bandcamp on black tape and digital.
Dutch producer Jameszoo was so kind to share a track by his live-band with us, a cover-version of Dimlite‘s “Cogwheel Gag”. Not the best quality, but a great appetizer to go out and catch him at one of his live-shows. You can download the track for free on his Bandcamp page, or listen to the original on Dimlite’s Abscission mini-album.
Mixtapes from Swiss producer Dimlite are a bit of a rare thing, without taking a look I’d assume I collected about a handful over all these years. His latest, a fundraiser mix for Los Angeles’ internet radio dublab, might have been round for some time, but it was only today that Ripl Music spread the news about its existence. Oh, and ask yourself what you’d need a tracklist for, there’s no need to judge a mix until you heard it in full! That said, here’s the download link.
What can I say, I don’t know anything about TV on the Radio, probably never heard a track by them. (Just to put my ignorance in some relation). I do know one or the other track by Dimlite though, and I try and talk all my friends into giving him a try. Such an under-appreciated musician, still–after all these years!
Anyway, Dorian Concept shared this cover-version of TV on the Radio’s Tonight as performed by Dimlite. Available for free download as well! Also, let’s not forget about his new album project Cite, which looks like it could still need a little support.
We’ve been embracing all news about Dimlite‘s music since the very start of this blog. Such news are scarce, sometimes mysterious or even misleading (at least there’s a lot to speculate about!) Well, here’s official news in the form of an upload to SoundCloud, where the Swiss producer shared his remix of Chop’s Feedback, the original being taken from the all new album on Now-Again (no word about a release of the remix though.)
In other news, Ripl Music sent out the word today that Dimlite is also working on a new album under the name of Dim Grimm. You participate in the making of that record, more info about that here and there.
We’re not going to make any assumptions who Hugo Sonia is, we don’t know more than the Ripl Music website tells us. Could be the true, could be another of Dimlite‘s attempts to disguise himself. In the end it doesn’t matter, it’s the music that counts. And this first full preview from the forthcoming EP called Simulations Vol. 1 (Cracked Vessels, Joyful Disposition) sounds very promising. Second release on Ripl, out sometime in spring.
A look at his Discogs page quickly reveals the number of Dimlite remixes available. I have to admit I was a bit surprised, though I have most of these sitting in my shelf I didn’t think it were that many, though there aren’t too many. There are of course his brilliant re-interpretations of Carlos Niño, Ahu, Flying Lotus, Ritornell, Found, or his own Misel Quitno moniker.
Since November 11, there’s a new one, the track you can hear above, a remix for Merz on Matthew Herbert’s Accidental Records. Looks like a digital-only release, but that does not mean you can’t buy it.
Switzerland’s Ripl Music launches its series of mixtapes with a contribution from no other than Dimlite. The label previously gave us his Abscission EP, a Misel Quitno Sample Pack and now this mixtape. Mmmmmmh, I guess it’s save to assume that Ripl is one of our favourite Swiss producer’s covert operations, better keep an eye on them!
No tracklist or any further information on this mix, so let’s download this and trust a good man’s taste. (Thanks to Kelpe for the heads up!)
Taken from that new Gaslamp Killersingle we mentioned here before, check out the b-side featuring our favourite Swiss producer Dimlite.
The nice folks of Now-Again are giving away the track for free, so grab it while you can! The track will also be on the forthcoming GLK album Breakthrough, which will hopefully see a release on vinyl as well.
01. Flange Face (with Miguel Atwood-Ferguson)
02. Flange Face (Low End Theory Edit)
03. Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun (with Dimlite)
As of today, you can get yourself a taste of the record as Brainfeeder released the single Flange Face containing two of the album tracks plus a Low End Theory edit of the title track. You can listen to all of the tracks on the Bleep website, where you can also buy the digital-only single.
Expect the full album Breakthrough to follow on September 17, 2012.
