Jeremiah Jae – The Heat

I welcome this new Jeremiah Jae video as a reminder to listen to his “Good Times” mixtape more often. If you haven’t heard it yourself, it was released earlier this year via Dat Piff and SoundCloud. Can we please get his Warp debut album next?

Jonwayne – The Marion Morrison Mixtape

LA’s Jonwayne completes his trilogy of mixtapes for Stones Throw with The Marion Morrison Mixtape, 11 tracks of beats and raps (yes!) by the man himself plus features with the likes of Flying Lotus alter ego Captain Murphy or newly signed Warp artist Jeremiah Jae. As for the name of the release, Marion Morrison is the legal name of cowboy actor John Wayne, while Jonwayne actually goes by the name Jon Wayne (in case you wondered.)

Unlike the first two cassette-only mixtapes, the new one comes as a free download – unless you want to get your fingers on the actual thing.

Weekly Bits 26/2012

In the coming week, 2012’s Bloc is taking off in London. Over the past weeks, the makers of the festival did a series of interviews with some of the artists performing. Check out the videos with Steve Reich, Apparat and Nicolas Jaar.

As you should know by now, Rob Booth has just released the first Electronic Explorations compilation. That’s 60 tracks for only ₤5! If you’re not convinced yet, here’s a mixtape with all the tracks.

Another big mix I wanted to post earlier this week is the latest in One-Handed‘s Dedication series. It comes from Turkish singer Ahu and she introduces the listener to one of her favourite jazz singers: Blossom Dearie.

Pitchfork gave away a remix by Illum Sphere for a track off Lorn‘s new album on Ninja Tune – grab it while you can!

Following John Tejada‘s excellent Parabolas, the renowned techno producer teams up once more with Kompakt for a new album. XLR8R has more details on that.

Once a film student, Flying Lotus made some attempts at directing music videos before. His latest was done for Jeremiah Jae‘s new single on Brainfeeder: Money.

And lastly, here’s one more mixtape courtesy of Addison Groove, also available for free download.

Azizi Gibson x Jeremiah Jae – Ignorant Prayers Instrumentals

Azizi Gibson x Jeremiah Jae - Ignorant Prayers Instrumentals

Cover Artwork

You might have seen the new mixtape by Azizi Gibson and Jeremiah Jae posted yesterday on the Brainfeeder website. Not that prominently featured were the instrumentals, those are available on Jeremiah’s own Tumblr page. Personally, I prefer them over the Azizi’s raps, though I must admit the instrumentals can feel a bit empty at times.01. Yammaha (Instrumental)
02. Lover$ (Instrumental)
03. Track 2
04. Get Head (Instrumental)
05. Windows (Instrumental)
06. Surrendering your soul Radio
07. Gonna Make a Change (Instrumental)
08. Fish Scale (Instrumentals)
10. Rappin Ain’t Dead Nigga (Instrumental)
11. Where Is Pastor Slick Bak (Interlude)
12. Little Timmy’s Prayers (Instrumental)
13. God (Instrumental)
14. Azizi’s Request (Instrumental)
15. Why you dont date Thugs these days
16. Bonus Beat (Instrumental)
17. Could it Be (Instrumental)
18. P.H.C (Instrumental)

In the end, it’s up to you: grab the instrumentals, grab the full version, grab both – they’re all available for free!

Teebs & Jeremiah Jae Interview

Apart from label founder Flying Lotus, Jeremiah Jae and Teebs have to be Brainfeeder’s most exciting new artists. Both have been touring together for the last couple of weeks. Whilst stopping in Sheffield, Alex Keegan sat down with them for an extended interview.

You should be familiar now with Teeb’s album Ardour, one of our favourites in 2010. Jeremiah Jae’s new EP was only released the other week, so give it a try if you haven’t yet.

Weekly Bits 3/2011

The weekly bits are a great way to sum up a week of my Twitter posts. They are also a great excuse for being lazy and not writing articles for a week.

Brainfeeder has posted some give-aways titled Lunch Special II and Lunch Special III this week, fans of Jeremiah Jae watch out! They’re also giving a first preview to the forthcoming album by Austin Peralta, which really sounds like something.

The Leaf label has put together a 7-disc Caribou bundle, featuring previous albums, exclusive tracks and two DVDs. You can order it here.

As mentioned before, the new Pixelord EP will go on sale tomorrow. Read the interview in Knowledge Magazine and enter their competition to win copies.

LA’s Stones Throw is sharing a previously unreleased Jaylib track, well it was released not long ago on Madlib’s Medine Show #11.

Celebrating their 4th anniversary, Fine Art Records are giving away the Fabrice Lig album for free.

Not many mixtapes this week. You probably heard Morgan Zarate‘s guestmix for URB already. You also should have heard the Mark Pritchard podcast for Ho Hum before, if not you can now find it on Mixcloud.

But the best mix I’ve heard in a while is Jamie xx guestmix for Benji B. In case you missed it the first time around, you can still download it.

Thanks to 8bitch for posting Liz Copeland‘s in-depth interview with Drexciya‘s James Stinson. Originally recorded in 2002, just week’s before James passed away. The only ever Drexciya interview!

And finally, here’s a nice series of photos taken by Billy Monk at Capetown night clubs between 1967 and 1969.

Weekly Bits 24/2010

Despite the ongoing World Cup, I think it’s time to revive that old fashion of weekly bits again.

With Form, producer AFTA-1 presents his latest art project: 100 cassettes with all new music, each wrapped in 1/100th piece of a painting. And if you threw your last walkman away 15 years ago, you can get a digital version as well!

Mixtape-wise, I was mostly listening to the latest Beats in Space show with Kompakt head Michael Mayer (and his set from Sunday Best) or James Holden’s guestmix for the XLR8R Podcast. You might also be interested in this free Jeremiah Jae mixtape or the Kirk Degiorgio podcast for Bleep43

New in stores are the Break Off EP by SBTRKT & Sampha with two tracks first heard on their Worldwide appearance, a picture disc (!) by Jimmy Edgar with a nice Kyle Hall remix, or a new one from Martyn on Ostgut Ton. You might also want to check out the debut album from Swede:art, now available on CD and download.

Recommended free tracks come from Kelpe, fLako and Greymatter.

If you’re into photography, have a look at these portraits by Morgan O’Donovan. He’s had the likes of SBTRKT, Pariah, Brackles, Sinden or Greenmoney in front of his camera.

A bit older, but never mentioned: Flying Lotus interviews Ikonika, SBTRKT mix for Benji B.
