ENA – Mule Mouth (Extended Version)

Following his three 12-inches on 7even Recordings, Japanese producer ENA is readying his first album Bilateral on the label. If the rest sounds as exciting as the track above, I believe it’s something to look forward to. You can download this 12-minute bass experimentation for free, choose between MP3 or the Wave version. The album will be out on April 17th, you can pre-order your copy from Boomkat and various Japanese record stores.

Weekend Mixtapes

It’s weekend time, so here’s a selection of mixtapes I mentioned this week on Twitter.

French label 7even Recordings launched their own podcast series and they kick off with a mix by ENA, whose new 12-inch was only released the other day.

The second release on Jacques Greene’s Vase label comes from London duo Arclight and they’ve done an interview and guest mix for Dazed Digital.

King Britt has been releasing music under so many names, it’s hard to keep up. He just released a new EP on Hyperdub under his Fhloston Paradigm moniker and promotes it with a guestmix for FACT.

As Run Dem Crew is getting ready for the Berlin half-marathon, their founding member Morgan Zarate has done a 20-minutes mix for running.

I wish I had the time to keep up with radio shows, but here’s one I have to recommend. Tim’s You’ll Soon Know is on every Monday night and on his latest show his guests are Om Unit and Laurent Fintoni.

And lastly, check this 2003 Four Tet for Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide.

7even Exclusives

Having reached its 20th release, Tokyo’s 7even Recordings has good reason to celebrate. To make you feel invited, the label decided to give away a free mini-compilation. On it you’ll find five tracks from the likes of F, Joaan, Helixir, Likhan and Ena.

01. Likhan – The Dawn
02. Helixir – Cooly Groove
