Looking back, we’ve been writing about fLako‘s music for quite some time. From his humble beginnings on UpMyAlley and his own Kwatro imprint, the German-Chilean producer has come a long way. And if the expectations for his debut album “Natureboy” hadn’t been high enough, his guest appearance on Alexander Nut’s Rinse show made the last week before its release hard to bare.
Always having been a huge fan of Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, this is the album track I want to share with you. However, you can actually go ahead and stream the entire album or pick it up from all good record stores.
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.
The single is completed with a remix from Zed Bias under his Maddslinky alias and Mark himself delivering a remix for the dancefloor (think Restless Soul.) To make the wait until October 3rd a bit shorter, you can download the original version two weeks prior to the release – in exchange for your email address.
For a video of the full session, head over to the KCRW website, where you can also stream the music alone. And of course, I still recommend Mochilla’s Timeless DVD with a full concert by Arthur Verocai and a 30-piece orchestra!
Remixing Suite for Ma Dukes is a brave undertaking. Several producers and MCs at first accepted and then declined the job. In the end we think we got the right person. It is with great pleasure on the week of Mothers Day to release this remix. Done while mothering by none other than Georgia Anne Muldrow.
You have to visit the VTech website for the fullscreen version, there you can also download an MP3 of that remix.
Last week, the mighty Flying Lotus celebrated his birthday. What better way to celebrate is there, but invite some friends in and play some music with them.
That’s what the the people at ArtDontSleep must have thought, so they invited Exile, Shafiq Husayn, Stephen Thundercat Bruner, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Computer Jay, Isaac Smith, Jim Lang, Alla Koi, Andres Renteria, Matthew David and The Gaslamp Killer to get together for a jam session.
Luckily, this Birthday Jam was recorded and properly mixed. You can listen to 33 minutes from that in the player above or download it to your iPod.
