Whenever summer approaches, I reach for my dub records more often for an appropriate soundtrack to the pressing heat. And since it’s not far from there to dub techno, here’s a my favourite mixtape of the month. Berlin-based production duo youANDme, who put together a two hour mixtape full of deep and dubby sounds for the Inverted Audio podcast.
More uptempo sounds can be heard on the latest XLR8R Podcast, selected and mixed by Apron Records-founder Funkineven. Since I missed it before, let me also throw in their previous podcast by Call Super.
I don’t know why I was so surprised, but I’ve really become fond of the new Prins Thomas album (listen on Spotify). Give it a try, if you haven’t! The Norwegian DJ and producer dropped by the Beats in Space to play records for more than an hour.
Listen to a recording of Andrés, who played for more than four hour last May in Cologne’s Roxy club.
The same goes for Theo Parrish and Dego, who took over the Do You show from the other day. Yup, that’s Theo Parrish and Dego McFarlane in one show!
Following the excellent FACT Mix by MGUN, London’s Fabric put out an exclusive Wild Oats mixtape by the Detroit producer.
You might have heard that Martyn is one of the many artists to have signed on Ninja Tune recently. And since he’s completed a new album for the label, Mixmag asked them to contribute a mixtape.
I might be late to the game, but the last Tom Trago album on Rush Hour has really grown on me in the last couple of weeks and months. A good reason to have an eye on the Amsterdam-based producer’s doings.
Following a release on Kutmah’s IZWID label and a some teasing from Funkineven, there’s finally some news about the new Seven Davis Jr record. Titled “P.A.R.T.Y.”, the Los Angeles-based producer’s new 12-inch will be released on Apron Records in only a couple of weeks time. These snippets should give you a better idea of how the real thing is going to sound before you can pick it up in your favourite record store on March 11, 2014!
February 28, 2014 The guys at Hyponik have a new 69-minute mix by the man
I started this post on November 21st, but never got around to publish it. It has grown in numbers of mixes since then and just would like to get this out quickly, before I forget (or the mixes go offline!)
I wanted to post the first video the other day, but I guess it makes more sense to post both these videos about the track Phoneline. So here we got FunkinEven showing how the track came about, and in the second video Fatima joins him for an interview.
The Phoneline EP has been released on Eglo Records and is available from Boomkat – Phonica and Rush Hour have it for pre-order.
August 3, 2012 Also, here’s video of FunkinEven & Fatima’s in-store session at Phonica Records
Eglo Records has been treating us good in the last couple of months. First a new EP by Fatima, followed by another Floating Points this week. And next up, it seems, is a new FunkinEven record, at least there’s a new video announcing a new 12-inch.
The video was directed by Inumikaku and features cameos from Fatima. Vinyl release to be confirmed.
From SpineTV comes a documentary about London’s Eglo label, the home to Floating Points, Fatima and Funkineven. You might also want to check out the brand new Soul Glo music video.
I was about to post you snippets of Erykah Badu’s upcoming album, but they have been removed in the meantime. You can still win a print of the album’s artwork or download the leaked track Strawberry Incense.
Another anticipated album is finally in stores: F’s Energy Distortion is available on CD and digital. Vinyl lovers have to get it split over three EPs.
