On the occasion of the digital release of our new record, we wanted to remind you of Mike Slott’s remix of “Under / When Someone Is Drowning You…” (compare it to the original!). If vinyl isn’t your thing, and you even can resist the quality of a lovingly handmade product, you might be interesting in hearing it on iTunes, Spotify, Google Music and all those places. We thank you for your support!
I wonder whether it’s been such a great decision to use the Mike Slott remix as the opener for Kelpe‘s new record. If you’re like me and become that obsessive that you’re listening to a track on repeat for days, then the answer is probably “no”. Anyway, it’s one of those tracks that does that for me. Feel free disagree with me though, Fourth: The Golden Eagle Remixed offers 11 alternatives to choose from, including mixes from the likes of Débruit, Fulgeance, Dam Mantle, and Soosh. Not all of them made it on the vinyl release, but my favourite is among them. For the full package you’ll have to go for the digital release!
As delighted as we’re to hear the reinterpretations of Cid Rim‘s recent Mute City EP, we couldn’t be happier to hear new music from Mike Slott. One of the original founding members of LuckyMe—alongside Hudson Mohawke and The Blessings—Mike hasn’t released any new music for two and a half years—which is a shame! So, here he is with his remix for Cid Rim, and it’s part of the Mute City Remixes out due October 1st, 2013.
PS: Make sure to check out Mike Slott in conversation with Cid Rim as well!

When it comes to design, the art of arranging letters has to be my favourite discipline. This new Mike Slott video directed by Stuart Langfield makes great use of typography, reason enough to feature it here.
The track Amanallah itself is taken from last year’s Lucky 9Teen EP, which you can still buy on vinyl and digital.

Sometimes, I’m not quite sure what to choose for my weekly bits. I always hope that I have interesting stuff to share with you. But selection bears limitation and I don’t limit what I select. Perhaps, you are more interested in the leaked tracks from the upcoming Nosaj Thing album or you do care more about wicked mixtapes like Peter Kruder‘s set for Beats in Space? Is your seek for the Gilles Peterson’s Q-Tip Special so desperate again? And have you heard the latest Super Value re-edit already? What about the new episode of Low End Theory Podcast? Did I miss anything on Dorian Concept again? Man, that new Spike Jonze flick is something I wanna see!
I’m sure there is a lot I have missed and I hope there’s something in it for you. There’s too much stuff happening out there, but if you want to share the latest buzz with me, you are more than welcome!
