Weekly Bits 26/2012
In the coming week, 2012's Bloc is taking off in London. Over the past weeks, the makers of the festival did a series of interviews with some of the artists performing. Check out the videos with Steve Reich, Apparat and Nicolas Jaar.
As you should know by now, Rob Booth has just released the first Electronic Explorations compilation. That's 60 tracks for only ₤5! If you're not convinced yet, here's a mixtape with all the tracks.
Another big mix I wanted to post earlier this week is the latest in One-Handed‘s Dedication series. It comes from Turkish singer Ahu and she introduces the listener to one of her favourite jazz singers: Blossom Dearie.
Pitchfork gave away a remix by Illum Sphere for a track off Lorn‘s new album on Ninja Tune - grab it while you can!
Following John Tejada‘s excellent Parabolas, the renowned techno producer teams up once more with Kompakt for a new album. XLR8R has more details on that.
Once a film student, Flying Lotus made some attempts at directing music videos before. His latest was done for Jeremiah Jae‘s new single on Brainfeeder: Money.
And lastly, here's one more mixtape courtesy of Addison Groove, also available for free download.
