Mwëslee – Eurocarne EP

Mwëslee - Eurocarne EP

Cover Artwork

Kindred Spirit sister label Nod Navigators has been among the first labels to release up and coming producers from the “beat generation”. Among the label’s roster are the likes of Aardvarck, Tom Trago, Dizz1 and, of course, Dorian Concept.

Their latest EP comes from Spanish producer and 2005 RBMA alumni Mwëslee, for whom it’s already the second release on the label. On Eurocarne he abducts the sound of the eighties and takes it fast-forward to the year 2010. Crazy synthesizers that remind of Hudson Mohawke, definitely a recommended release.A1. Eurocarne
A2. Nova Olimpia
A3. Variations Pour CX Pallas
B1. Far Loop Era
B2. Pacifico
B3. Mañana Calor

Available on 12-inch and as digital release, Eurocarne should be in stores the next couple of days. Get your copy directly from Rush Hour or any other good record shop.

Midweek’s Mixes

Missed a couple of good mixtapes recently, here is a selection of bass-heavy material.

Following up her album Contact, Love, Want, Have, Ikonika returns with an exclusive mix for the XLR8R Podcast. In the next couple of weeks, you can catch Ikonika touring North America.

I keep recommending to subscribe to the LuckyMe podcasts. If you haven’t yet, you just missed mixes from James Pants, Hyetal, Optimo and many others. Get them all here!

From RBMA graduate Tokimonsta comes a selection of her favourite tunes, available for streaming on the Red Bull Music Academy Radio.

Weekend Mixtapes

There were quite a lot of mixtapes this week worth mentioning, so rather than waiting for Monday I’m posting them just in time for the weekend.

Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet has joined Gilles Peterson to record a special podcast in honor of Steve Reid, who passed away recently. Kieran and Steve recorded several albums together, so there are some anecdotes to tell and of course lots of music from Steve.

Another mix full of classics comes from my fellow countryman DJ Nuts, who plays a selection of music from the legendary Arthur Verocai. Take this as a reminder to cop Mochilla’s Timeless DVD box-set.

The latest Resident Advisor podcast features a mix from Dutch dubstep producer Dave Huismans, better known as 2562 or A Made Up Sound.

From the same sonic territories comes Ikonika‘s mix recorded at Hoya Hoya‘s second anniversary.

London’s Warm Music presents another mix from I:Cube (Versatile), as usual you can get it from the SoundCloud page.

And lastly, you should check out the latest Hep Cat Radio show which has a mix from Mweslee.
