“I wanted to take the opportunity to do something different for this Solid Steel mix and I decided to approach the mix as if I was ‘back from a good night out’ and winding down with some late night weird selections from my vinyl collection”, says Bristol’s Pinch about his guestmix for the show.
Following his collaboration with Kieran Hebden, Dutch producer Martyn today premiered another track taken from his new album on Ninja Tune. This one is a feature with former Hype Williams partner Inga Copeland on vocals. “The Air Between Words” will be out in about two weeks time on June 16, 2014. Pre-orders available on the NinjaShop.
There’s little info about this tune from Martyn and Four Tet, but you’ve probably heard it in one of their DJ sets from the last couple of months. Apparently, it’s taken from Martyn’s forthcoming album The Air Between Words on Ninja Tune, set for a release in mid-June. Judging from the name, the version you can hear above is probably different from the album track. As I said, no info available.
May 6, 2014 Kieran just confirmed on his new show on NTS Live, that the version above is not the one on the album. Instead it will be available on a separate 12-inch.
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.
This is somewhat typical: you hear a tune several months before it comes out, but once it’s available you have already forgotten about it. There have been far more extreme examples than this new remix of Martyn 2008 track “Vancouver”, but it almost went off my radar. Fortunately, the Head High remix made a huge enough impression on me when I first heard it on the Hessle Audio radioshow in late November, still I only found out it’s already been waiting in record stores since January 20th. It’s probably hard by now to get a copy on vinyl, but 3024’s new distributor Clone still has some in stock.
Set The Tone is already one of the biggest dance tunes for me this year, so I’ve been following all of Ossie‘s activity since then. Last week he came up with a mix for the Hyponik podcast and it’s a good one.
Don’t have much to share this week, but still a couple of things you should know of.
When I’m asked for my favourite concert, I will answer Kahil El Zabar without hesitation. I accidently came across this trailer for the documentary Be Known, which is currently in post-production. Looking much forward to this one!
Back in the day, James Pants tried to be a hip-hop producer. I’m not saying I’m happy he failed, but I certainly prefer the music he’s doing now. Anyway, he has decided to give away some of his old beats.
Chances are you already heard the latest FACT Magazine podcast, a live recording of Jamie xx & Oneman. The two were playing back to back at what appears to be the hottest club in the UK right now: London’s Boiler Room. Expect a selection from disco and boogie to garage reworks of nineties pop-dancefloor tunes. A bit crazy, but really nice.
Next up we got last week’s Dummy Mix from Dutch producer 2562, in which he plays new music he’s “feeling from all over the place.” Also available from his SoundCloud page, just in case you feel you need to press the +fav button.

Paul Pre, another contributor to our podcast series, will be playing at this year’s Outlook Festival in Croatia. To promote himself and the event, he put a new mix on Mixcloud.
For oki-ni, dubstep producer Martyn did a mix “as if it were a spring afternoon radio show, with a few jingles and music from across the board”, including Carl Craig, Tom Tom Club, Austin Peralta and Caribou.
