Warp20 NYC

Warp20 NYC took place over a year ago and you’ve probably seen this video elsewhere. However, only recently director Lorenzo Fonda uploaded this to his Vimeo page.

In this full documentary on the event, he filmed and interviewed involved artists Flying Lotus, Jamie Lidell, !!!, Hudson Mohawke, Clark, PVT and others. Click on the names to watch the individual parts only.

Jamie Lidell Compass Tour

I still consider Jamie Lidell‘s performance at Sónar 2005 one of the best concerts in my life, so I want to recommend catching him on his world tour.

For the next month, he’ll be all over the United States and Canada, followed by a tour through Europe. The video above contains snippets from previous concerts, including lots of backstage footage.

The track in the background is I Wanna Be Your Telephone, taken from the Compass album.

Black Cab Session with Jamie Lidell

Those who had the pleasure of seeing Jamie Lidell in concert will agree he’s an unique performer, who can bring together a microphone and a laptop like no other. Following a concert on a park bench, here’s Jamie singing “The Ring” in a London cab.

The track is taken from his new album Compass, which came out today. Get your copy from Bleep or elsewhere. There’s also an official video for “The Ring”.

Dorian Concept Give-Away

Record Sleve

You might remember the Dorian Concept Remixes that Rush Hour gave away on the eve of the album release last year.

Austrian label (and promoter) The Loud Minority pressed two of these on a highly limited 7-inch which is on sale almost exclusively at their parties in Vienna. While a few copies were available on Juno Records for a short time, it now looks like you have to visit the Austrian capital in order to get a copy.

A. Jamie Lidell – Little Bit Of Feel Good
B. Dirty South – Stay Fly

Upcoming releases on TLM Records include new music from Isoul8, The Clonious or that Bill Withers edit. Each will be limited to 300 copies, with only a fraction of those making it to record stores.

And now for the good news.. Fortunately, my Austrian agent was able to get his hands on three copies of the Dorian Concept 7-inch, so I decided to give them away to three lucky ones. There are two ways to enter the competition:
