With “Moonbuilding 2073 AD”, legendary The Orb released one of the biggest surprises of the year (as in surprisingly good) on Cologne’s Kompakt label. If you haven’t given it a try before, please do so, it’s among my favourites for the year. There will be more surprises. The smaller one the mere fact that there will be a remix EP, the bigger one that one the remixes is coming out of sunny Los Angeles, courtesy of Brainfeeder-signed and long-time favourite Teebs.
No other remixers have been revealed as of now, neither the name of the remix EP. What we do know though is the release date and that’s on October 2nd, 2015. Keep your eyes peeled!
Just don’t you worry, there are no wobbling basslines or trap music involved in the following. The photo for Teebs‘ latest show on dublab depicts the Chino Hills-based artist holding The Free Design’s folk album Heaven/Earth and that’s far closer to what you can expect in his 52-minutes show. A couple of funk and soul records, some hip hop beats. Just the perfect soundtrack for the beginning of Spring!
And since we’re talking about Teebs already, let me make sure you took a listen to his new Brainfeeder-released album Estara by now!
I wasn’t too convinced after hearing the first track from Mtendere Mandowa’s new album on Brainfeeder, but this new one featuring Jonti I like much better. Looking forward to hear what Teebs has come up with on the entire record. Titled “Estara”, the album is available for pre-order and will be in stores worldwide on April 7, 2014.
Look at that, our dear friend Kelpe is back with a remix for Los Angeles’ Sons of the Morning, the duo compromised of Prefuse 73 and Teebs. The original is taken from their Speak Soon (Volume One) EP, released only a couple of months ago. And as there’s no description coming with the remix above, we can only speculate whether it’s going to be part of a second volume. However, you might also want to check out a second remix, courtesy of LA beatmaker Co.fee:
Just like the NSA, we’ve been monitoring every little step of Guillermo Scott Herren’s new Yellow Year label, eagerly awaiting the release of their first record. It turns out to be as wonderful as one would expect from either Prefuse 73 or Teebs, so we cannot but recommend picking up a copy. “Speak Soon (Volume One)“ is available now and you can choose between vinyl, CD and digital download. All of them are available directly from the label, Bleep, or your favourite record store!
When I’m not listening to the Hessle Audio radio show on Rinse.fm, I’m more than happy to track down other mixes by Ben UFO and company. The Essential Mix is still a big deal and—annoying as Pete Tong’s flat introductions are—you might want to grab this new one featuring Ben.
We don’t think that any fans of Prefuse73 or Teebs will truly need a reminder of the forthcoming Sons of the Morning EP, but if you do, we will gladly provide that service. Titled Speak Soon Volume One, the 7-track record is only about a week from release on the Prefuse73-founded Yellow Year label. Following an earlier teaser, the label shared this 11-minute video with further snippets from the EP. Again, that will be out next week or October 1st, 2013. And while we’re at it, we would like to remind you of the duo’s Boiler Room appearance from last year!
September 27, 2013 You can stream the entire EP over at Noisey
More than a month ahead of its release, Ninja Tune shares the Teebs from the forthcoming new Raffertie single. Rain is taken Sleep Of Reason, Raffertie’s debut album on the label released earlier this month, it will be out in stores on October 6, 2013. Pre-order from the NinjaShop and iTunes.
More than a year after first hearing about Sons of the Morning, a collaborative project by Prefuse73 and Teebs, things are finally starting to move. Besides giving some insights to what their project sounds like, the video above gives a vague release date for it. The vagueness leaves it open whether we can expect a full album, but whatever it is, it’s going to be released on Prefuse’s newly founded label Yellow Year. So little info, so much excitement!
Almost unnoticed by myself, the third and final Road Kill compilation was released a couple of days ago. All of them came out in the last 6 months, all of them are worth checking out and a must-have for fans of the Los Angeles scene (though there are non-LA artists on it as well!) It might seem a bit predictable that I have picked the Teebs track, but you know how much I love his music.
I could live inside any of Teebs‘ tracks, what more comfy place could there be? Above you can hear his collaboration with Yuk, one of the tracks from dublab’s Light from Los Angeles compilation. All songs and videos of that project are released under a Creative Commons license, so they can be downloaded and remixed under the same conditions.
I’m not quite sure when the project will be completed, but you can download the Teebs & Yuk track for the time being!
I’ve actually been to Belgium’s 10 Days Off back in 2003 and I have nothing but good memories of the festival and the lovely town of Ghent. Last Thursday, it was Brainfeeder’s Teebs playing there and much to my joy a recording has been made available on SoundCloud.
For repeated listen on your device of choice, grab the download while it’s available!
