Lapalux – Puzzle (Live at Maida Vale)

Watch a live performance by Lapalux featuring Andreya Triana on vocals, recorded at London’s Maida Vale Studios. The original is, of course, taken from the new Lapalux album Lustmore, released last month on Brainfeeder.

There are a couple of more videos worth checking out, let’s start with Dorian Concept and Untold.

Chrysalis

Attention people, because Nick Rutter‘s short film “Chrysalis” is quite possibly the best music video of the year. Beautifully captured moments of adolescent life in suburban Britain, dealing with emotions such as love and hurt, and an increasingly violent element—somewhat reminiscent of Chris Cunningham. The visual and the narrative quality makes it easy to forget that all of this works as the backdrop for an all new single by Lapalux, though the music fits the mood of the film pretty good. I guess it all makes sense to call this a “short film”.

Lapalux – Without You (Alternate Version)

Whether you’re a big follower of Lapalux or not, chances are that you heard (and liked) Without You taken off his Brainfeeder-released debut album Nostalchic. If you liked that, then take a good listen to this alternate version he shared on his SoundCloud page last night.

BINKBEATS Beats Unraveled

The Healer by Madlib/Erykah Badu

Dutch producer Binkbeats runs one of the most impressive YouTube channels I’ve ever come across. There he regularly covers contemporary beats with an array of (sometimes obscure) analogue equipment, an MPC and laptop.

Getting There by Flying Lotus

So far there is music from Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus and Lapalux reinterpreted. if he maintains the pattern, there will be a new track each month (hopefully!) Luckily, these invite you to repeated listens.

Without You by Lapalux

Simply. Brilliant. Stuff.

Lapalux – Without You

Once you heard the new Lapalux material, his previous two EPs on Brainfeeder only seem like a warm-up excercise… and they kind of are. His debut album, titled Nostalchic, will be out on March 26 and here’s a first taster of what to expect. Watch the video for Without You, directed by Nick Ray Rutter and featuring vocals of Kerry Leatham.

Weekend Mixtapes #25

As the weekend is about to kick off, the internet has a very special selection of mixtapes this week. Let’s have a look at them.

With his much anticipated third album Nebula Dance finally in stores, Brighton’s Ital Tek is about to tour the U.S. in the coming weeks. He also did a mixtape for Self-titled Mag and picked his 10 favourite footwork tracks for Dummy.

Another album to look out for is Kid Kanevil and Daisuke Tanabe’s Kidsuke, which will be out on November 2nd. In the meantime, check out their mixtape for Finest Ego’s Monthly Mix.

Next up, we got a triplet of uptempo mixes: London’s xxxy got to play a show on Russian radio Follow Me Studio, Scuba showcases lots of new Hotflush material on his mix for FACT Magazine, and you can stream Objekt‘s 2-hour mix from this year’s Dimension Festival.

Boiler Room invited Berlin’s Dixon & Âme to play at their ADE party the other day, that’s 4 hours in the mix!

Hyperdub’s first lady Ikonika did a guestmix for Rob Booth’s Electronic Explorations and she included a previously unheard remix of hers.

Legendary Philadelphia DJ and producer King Britt was approached by the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage “to curate a show on Afrofuturism and its influences on me and my compositional work.”

Hot on the heels of his new single on Brainfeeder, London’s Lapalux stopped by at Los Angeles’ KCRW to do a mini mix.

The oldie of the week comes from Jneiro Jarel, who posted his Houston We Have A Solution Mix made in 2005 (careful, it’s a Facebook link!)

And lastly, let us remind you we had two new mixes out ourselves: Lokiboi contributed to our own podcast series, and Tetsuo did a mix for Colectivo Futuro.

Lapalux – The Hours

Following his extremely well-received When You’re Gone EP from earlier in the year, UK producer Lapalux is about to unleash his next release. Like the previous record, it will be out on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label and here’s an outtake for you to download.

According to Amazon, Some Other Time will be out on vinyl and digital with a release date of October 16, 2012.

Thundercat – For Love I Come (Lapalux Flip)

I’d like to tell you that this is seeing a release sometime in the the future, but I’m afraid there are no such plans. So take a good listen to this remix from new Brainfeeder signing Lapalux, who turned this track (which I considered unremixable) into a real beauty.

The original version of Thundercat‘s George Duke cover appear on his debut album The Golden Age of the Apocalypse, which was released some weeks ago. Don’t wait for the best-of rundowns at the end of the year, get the album now!
