Dorian Concept – Empty Everything (But You)

Radio presenter, DJ and overall great person Mamiko Motto teamed up with our favourite Irish label All City (well, that’s an easy, if not an obvious pick) to put out a new compilation. Titled Amada, I guess you can call it a spiritual successor to the Beat Dimensions compilations — on the terms of 2013. So it’s maybe no suprise to find the likes of James Pants, Mwëslee or Dorian Concept are among the 13 featured artists. And since there’s still no word about the (supposedly finished) album from the latter, we’re more than happy to present his track off the compilation.

Amada will be in stores on November 8, 2013 and it will be available on vinyl, CD and (wild guess) digital.

Rednose Distrikt Interview

Just came across this video interview with my favourite Dutch outfit Rednose Distrikt. It’s quite old, but you probably didn’t know this yet.

The interviewer is Hepcat Radio hostess Mamiko Motto.

Mixtape Monday #6

My favourite mixtape from last week comes once again from Hotflush Recordings. For the fifth edition of their podcast, San Francisco based Jus Wan put together a nice selection of deep and dubby music. If you haven’t already, subscribe to the podcast!

Soulparlor, a trio of producers and DJs are also the hosts of Germany’s first address for broken beats and soulful vibes, the already legendary You Move Nothing If You Don’t Move Yourself night in Mainz. Only last Saturday, it was 2000black‘s Dego who blessed the place with his records. And following the recordings of Kaidi Tatham & Mark Force and Colonel Red, you can download two hours of Dego’s set.

Viral Radio’s latest show with Hudson Mohawke and Mamiko Motto just went online some minutes ago. Though I haven’t listened to it yet, I’m sure it’s one of the highlights this week. Make sure to check Viral Radio’s archive while you’re at it!  Hudson Mohawke’s mix from Benji B has also been spotted.

Another Dutch recording is the latest offering from The New Worck, who once again managed to get a mixtape from Rednose Distrikt’s very own Aardvarck (did you check his new album?)

One of the most interesting mixtapes was sent to me by Svetlana Industries, a new label based in Serbia. For an unusual and therefore exciting selection of dubstep and hip-hop beats, check out their first minimix.

Most fans of Theo Parrish certainly got his DJ set from The Do-Over already, otherwise I’m more than happy to mention it here.

For the jazz lovers I have one last mix today. Some of my Twitter followers called Blackclassical‘s anniversary mix the best jazz mix of all time. I will let you decide that for yourself.

Nov 12, 2009 Dego’s mix was recorded without permission and removed by request of the artist

Weekly Bits 37/2009

You know I have a crush on the Kindred Spirits label, so I’m pleased to report they have some new releases. Build an Ark will soon return with their new album “Love”, in the meantime you can listen to the new EP which is available for pre-order. Already available is the album from the Kindred Spirits Ensemble, should be in stock at every good record store.

As I continue sucking up everything related to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue album lately, I stumbled across these Legacy Podcasts about Jazz of 1959. In four episodes you can learn about jazz in the year ’59, the making of the milestone album Kind of Blue, but also on Dave Brubeck’s and Charles Mingus’ albums that came out that year.

I very much enjoyed Resident Advisor’s interview with Disco punk DJ Harvey and you should also check out FACT’s interview with Floating Points.

Mymanhenri has posted this live recording of Dorian Concept, Mamiko Motto and Cinnaman playing at L.A.’s Dublab.

Fans of the classic Reinforced label might want to show their love with this new (ehm, oldskool) t-shirt. And if I had some money left, I’d get me one of these Ghostly 10 Year Edition Posters from ISO50.
