Weekly Bits 41/2009

Much sooner than expected AFTA-1 and GAS’D have released the 4th installment of their Love is Real series. To be honest, I haven’t listened to it yet, but knowing the previous volumes and a look at the tracklist you can’t go wrong with it.

And while we’re at soulful music, you probably heard about Bilal’s new album already. It will be released in early 2010 by California’s Plug Research label.

Out soon is the new album from Berlin based producer Robot Koch. It will be available on vinyl and CD, all pre-orders come with these fake Wayfarers sunglasses.

4hero’s Marc Mac twittered this trailer to an upcoming documentary about arranger and producer Charles Stepney called Interrupted Greatness. There isn’t any additional info on the documentary available on the net.

Coinciding with the release of Hyperdub’s anniversary compilation, the Sunday Times has posted an article about the label and its founder Steve Goodman (aka Kode9).

Another enjoyable read are Daniel Wang’s 15 Ways To Clear a Dancefloor for self-titled magazine.
