While dÉbruit‘s latest video shares some attributes with his last one, like the tones and that hue cycling effect, it’s not clear whether it’s once again the work of German artist Rainbowmonkey, there’s no credit to be found. The track Cuivrée is taken from the Parisian’s current album From The Horizon, which was released on Civil Music in early summer. Since then, a set of remixes came out on vinyl and digital, featuring treatments from LV, Kelpe, Fulgeance and Mwëslee.
Pollyn is the Los Angeles based trio of Genevieve Artadi, Anthony Cava and beatmaker Adam Jay Weissman. Their debut album This Little Night is hard to find outside the United States, though their mixture of hip-hop and indie styles (somewhere between Goldfrapp and Nite Jewel) should easily attract a wider audience.
Still Love is the second single off the album, sounding like a modern Kate Bush wrapped in atmospheric soundscapes and a hip-hop beat. Besides the original version and an instrumental, it comes with three remixes with two of them blowing my mind.01. Still Love (Original Version)
02. Still Love (Sid Roams Remix)
03. Still Love (Débruit Remix)
04. Still Love (Blue Daisy Remix)
05. Still Love (Instrumental)
First up is Paris beatmaker Débruit, who tears up the track to fill it with his monster synth-lines and straight forward beats. The remix from London’s Blue Daisy maintains the atmosphere of the original, but adds much more depth to it. You could easily mistake this for a creation of the Flying Lotus.
I found it very difficult to pick a favourite out of these. In the end I chose the Débruit remix, hoping this would give Pollyn the most attention. Here’s the video for the original version of the song:
Unfortunately, it doesn’t say when and where this is gonna drop. Have them in mind the next time you visit a record-shop, I will add the date as soon as I know!
Dec 7, 2009 In the meantime, I got a response regarding the release-date. The single is supposed to be available as free download as of now. So why not grab my two favourite mixes from above?
The Brainfeeder label always guarantees a great selection of music, their latest mixtape is called Brain Food and was put together by Alex B. If you like that I can already tell you want the FACT Podcast by Débruit as well.
Joscha Creutzfeld of UpMyAlley posted a mixtape made for RBMA Radio in 2007 on SoundCloud titled Lost and Found. This should make the waiting for the follow-up to his more recent Brrappness Mix a bit easier.
Citinite and LuckyMe are joining forces for a very special event in November, featuring Dâm-Funk, Rustie and Jimmy Edgar. To get you in the mood for that, check the mixtape they put together for The Fader.
House producer Mark E not only has a very beautiful looking website, you might also want to check out the mixes he has posted there, including the all new Merc Mix #1.
Lastly, here’s an older mix from Detroit legend Juan Atkins, which was recorded at the 12th anniversary party of Berlin’s equally legendary Tresor.
Following Dorian Concept’s live-set at Sonar, I now have another one for you coming from Parisian beatmaker Débruit. Can’t say much more about it, except that it’s the same recording you might have heard on RBMA Radio, minus the bonus tracks.
Not even a proper video? So what are you waiting for, download and listen already!
