Gerry Read – Shrubby

We haven’t featured a lot of tracks lately, but this new track from UK man Gerry Read is something to look forward to. Following a series of excellent 12-inches and an album on Fourth Wave, the talented producer has just finished a new EP on Will Saul’s Aus Music. Out on March 24, it also features two remixes of the original by Redshape.

March 23, 2014 The full EP is now available on SoundCloud, take a good listen!

Nosaj Thing – Light #3 (Gerry Read Remix)

Gerry Read and Kyle Hall are the two gents who got to remix tracks from this year’s Nosaj Thing record on Innovative Leisure. I guess I’m more into Gerry’s remix which you can hear above. Both tracks are out now on vinyl and and digital.

Weekend Mixtapes #39

It’s been a good week (and month) for mixtapes, shall we start with our selection for the weekend?

Ben UFO’s and Pearson Sound’s show on Rinse FM is one of the few I make an effort to listen to on a regular basis. While I recommend tuning in every Thursday, let me highlight the show from August 8th (might go offline soon!)

To keep the uptempo vibes, check out another Boiler Room session from Nutriot Podcast contributor Gerry Read, who is about to release another of those fine 12-inches on Fourth Wave.

Following releases on Rush Hour and the Actress-operated Werkdiscs, check out Moiré‘s most excellent FACT mix from earlier this week.

Our Twitter followers might have noticed us going all crazy about the last Mr Beatnick radio show on NTS Live. He himself called it his best show all year, so make sure to take a good listen!

Los Angeles’ Julia Holter released her debut on Domino Records this week. On that occasion, she was asked to put to a very special mix called People Dreaming In Church.

And lastly, don’t sleep on Alexander Nut‘s show from last Saturday (PS: he’ll be live in about an hour or 12.00 GMT)

Weekly Bits 20/2013

Twenty weeks into the year and here comes the first edition of our weekly bits and we only noticed how we missed them.

Two years before the Sex Pistols formed, a year before The Ramones got together, three brothers from Detroit formed Death, arguably one of the first punk bands in the world. There is an interesting looking documentary coming to movie theaters (and iTunes) that you might want to check out!

And lastly – it is finally out!

Weekend Mixtapes

Work on the backend of the site and traveling around have kept me from posting many mixtapes this year, but then again I don’t recall much worth posting. So here is a selection of recommended mixtapes released throughout the month.

About six months ago, we were happy to have Gerry Read contribute to our own podcast series. Since then, the 20 year old Englishman released three much acclaimed 12-inches on the Fourth Wave label. Reason enough for XLR8R to invite him to do their first podcast of the year.

Boiler Room #69 was easily the most successful session to date, with thousand tuned in for the Thom Yorke’s DJ set. The really good sets that night came from others: Lone, Illum Sphere and Jamie xx with Caribou. And it’s the latter’s mix that’s finally available for download.

Two new mixes come from Hyperdub’s own Ossie. The young Londoner guested on GETME! Radio radio-show, as well as on the Hyperdub show on Rinse.

The latest Sonic Router mix comes from Moscow’s Pixelord, interview and download can be found here!

For some proper house music, check out the latest from Linkwood.

And lastly some older mixes. SBTRKT returned to Rinse for his third show, Kuedo did a mix for Motto Distribution, and King Midas Sound contributed to Dummy Mag‘s podcast.

Weekend Mixtapes

One of my favourite podcasts that probably isn’t as popular as it should be is JJ’s Smoking Sessions. Each episode focuses on a specific artists, sometimes a style of music, and the mixes are always spiced up with interview snippets. In their 82th podcast, they decided doing a feature on Moodymann. As always it’s a good one and it deserves the topspot of Weekend Mixtapes.

Next up is an amazing mix from Aardvarck. Download Loopin for the Perfect Beat, try figuring out the tracklist and win a copy of his all new album on Eat Concrete!

With his second release on Fourth Wave out soon, Gerry Read has put an together an exclusive mix for URB Magazine.

The new mix from Los Angeles’ Jon Wayne already got a lot of buzz and it’s not that I Don’t Care.

Another LA native is Take aka Sweatson Klank and he did a guest mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’ radio show. You can listen to it on his SoundCloud or Mary Anne’s Mixcloud.

Up next, here are two mixes from Manchester. First is an exclusive Illum Sphere mix for Fabric. And then there’s Mark E‘s mix for the 2020 Podcast.

Not so long ago, LV were guest on Benji B‘s Radio 1 show. Their guestmix is available for download.

And lastly, check out Jimmy Edgar‘s mix from Boiler room, available here or there.

Gerry Read – We Are/Narry

RAMP Recordings‘ house offshoot Fourth Wave is about to release a new 12″ from Gerry Read, already the second on the young label. Below you can listen to snippets for both of the tracks, I recommend the paying attention to the second track Narry (which you might have heard on a mixtape before.)

I couldn’t find an official announcement about the release date, but Juno lists it with an availability of September 12, 2011. If you slept on the Gerry Read podcast before, please do listen!

Volume 09 – mixed by Gerry Read

Around the time when our last podcast came out, UK’s Gerry Read released his debut on the Dark Arx label. That was quite some time ago and since then Gerry’s interested shifted from deep, techy dubstep to straight house music. Like on his last mixtape, Gerry continue to shows his love for house on this guestmix.

We decided against an interview this time, but if you want to find out more, Sonic Router and Get Some talked to the man a while ago.

While Gerry Read has a page on SoundCloud page, you will have to visit Dark Arx and Live Ones to hear some of his music. His forthcoming 12-inch will be released through the new Ramp Recordings sublabel Fourth Wave, snippets of that just went online.

Weekly Bits 14/2011

The good people at Sonic Router premiered this free EP from Golau Glau, consisting of seven tracks in a minimal techno flavour with dubstep influences here and there. Get the music from Bandcamp and don’t miss the the interview.

While we’re at Sonic Router, their latest podcast was mixed by Hotflush’s George FitzGerald and we think you want that.

Another recommended mix comes from Tom Trago, whose new album Iris is finally available in stores around the world. Also check out his podcast for DJ Broadcast.

Former Bugz in the Attic member Seiji was guest on the latest Solid Steel show, you can download his hour long guestmix on SoundCloud.

The track of the week comes from New York duo Sepalcure. Their remix for Schools of Seven Bells is a free download on the XLR8R website.

Lastly, here’s a new video from Bibio, whose new album Mind Bokeh is available now (also some nice shirts!)

Gerry Read – Patterns EP

If you listened to the latest Dark Arx podcast, you’re already familiar with the tracks on their new 12-inch. Coming from West Suffolk’s Gerry Read, the Patterns EP fits well into the label’s young history, drifting somewhere between Ramadanman, Headhunter and Burial.

I haven’t spotted the 12-inch yet, but you can get the digital release directly from the label, on Boomkat, Zero” or Juno.

November 26, 2010 Interview and new a mixtape by Gerry are available on Sonic Router
