Just as I was about to feature the marvelous Neon Jung remix from the all new Kelpe release, a track I had the pleasure of hearing for a while now, XLR8R premiered this video for the tune. Like the previous live at home clips, this was filmed by Kel himself using his GoPro while travelling the world (I think I spotted Mr Beatnick for a second.)
Svetlana Industries continues their series of free releases with a new one from Kelpe. When I Felt Fuzzy came out in April this year, it already came with a couple of remixes and this free EP contains a couple of more.
The remixes come from Scrase (probably my favourite in the bunch), Cupp Cave and Huess. I said free download, and you can grab that one over on Bandcamp.
I had the pleasure of running into Kelpe twice this month, one time seeing him perform a stunning live set. He’s got a new EP out on Svetlana Industries and this is the video for its title track, directed by Jonathan Lieb.
You can pick up the I Felt Fuzzy 12-inch directly from the label or record stores such as Boomkat and Rush Hour. Digital buyers still have to wait a week to get the download.
Hmm, I guess the fine people at Svetlana sent me the Polyklinik EP when it came out last October, but why did I never listen to it?
The video however is fairly new, directed by Shelf Index and the aesthetics are my kind of thing. Sorry for not mentioning the release earlier, but gladly you can still buy the digital over at Bandcamp!
We had Maya Medvesek on our radar since in her 8bitch days, enthralled by her raw, always daring productions. On her debut EP for the Svetlana label, reborn as Nightwave, she shows a remarkable growth in terms of quality, yet keeps her distinct girly touch on London underground music.
If you like what you hear, you can get the Feel EP on vinyl and digital from Svetlana’s Bandcamp.
It’s been a while since the last Svetlana record came out, but now Serbia’s finest label is back with new music from BNJMN. Most people might associate this name with his brilliant debut on Rush Hour, but in fact BNJMN released on Svetlana before under the name of Jackhigh.
On 141 you get to hear “deep aquatic originals” plus two more remixes by Lukid and Kelpe to complete the package. Listen to the preview below.
01. One Sea
02. We Are The Weather
05. One Sea (Lukid remix)
06. We are the weather (Kelpe remix)
You can already get the digital release from Svetlana’s Bandcamp page, but also from regular online retailers such as Bleep or Boomkat. The Kelpe remix is exclusively available from Boomkat at this moment, Bandcamp should follow next week.
The track above is one that didn’t make it on the release, instead you can download it as a free taster for the full release.
For the last week or so, I was hardly listening to anything else but that Theo Parrish Special on Benji B’s show. Listening to the iPlayer is more important than you might think, it’s a direct way to measure the popularity of a show – something that might in the end decide whether a show will be continued. In the case of last week’s show I did all I could, but now you can no longer listen to it. Unless you download a recording.
I have posted this old Dego mix for BTS some weeks ago, now it’s officially back in the archive. Not to be confused with his more recent guestmix, posted in February.
To give his all new 12-inch an extra push, former Bugz in the Attic man Seiji has posted a new mix. Available as stream and download.
We had a free compilation yesterday, today we’ll already give you another. This time it’s our favourite Serbian label Svetlana Industries providing a fine portfolio of their label roster.
As to be expected, the compilation features lots of talent from East European countries, such as Bulgaria’s 1000names, Croatia’s Josip Klobučar, Slovenian-born 8Bitch, Serbia’s Filtercutter or Russian duo Demokracy. Also included is music from Brainfeeder’s Teebs and plenty of other names I’m eager to discover.01. Demokracy – Starhaven
02. Prohor – Eye 1
03. Parallel Concept & KOCMOC – 5th Titan
04. Prohor – Eye 2
05. 1000names – Roket Loop ’94
06. Prohor – Eyebrow Divide
07. 8Bitch – In The Moog For Love
08. Prohor – Nose
09. Antstar – Thing Ten
10. Polyklinik – Blurred Photographs
11. Prohor – Mouth
12. Filtercutter – Den Piece
13. Prohor – Chin
14. Piece of Shh… – Desert Island
15. Prohor – Underchin
16. Jackhigh – Turbines
17. Josip Klobučar – Two and a half spoons of sugar please
18. Prohor – The Long and Slender Neck
19. Teebs – Everyone Alive Wants Answers
You can download all this for free over at BandCamp – starting tomorrow.
As this is a gapless release, Svetlana advises getting the iTunes version for full listening pleasure!
My favourite mixtape from last week comes once again from Hotflush Recordings. For the fifth edition of their podcast, San Francisco based Jus Wan put together a nice selection of deep and dubby music. If you haven’t already, subscribe to the podcast!
Soulparlor, a trio of producers and DJs are also the hosts of Germany’s first address for broken beats and soulful vibes, the already legendary You Move Nothing If You Don’t Move Yourself night in Mainz. Only last Saturday, it was 2000black‘s Dego who blessed the place with his records. And following the recordings of Kaidi Tatham & Mark Force and Colonel Red, you can download two hours of Dego’s set.
Viral Radio’s latest show with Hudson Mohawke and Mamiko Motto just went online some minutes ago. Though I haven’t listened to it yet, I’m sure it’s one of the highlights this week. Make sure to check Viral Radio’s archive while you’re at it! Hudson Mohawke’s mix from Benji B has also been spotted.
Another Dutch recording is the latest offering from The New Worck, who once again managed to get a mixtape from Rednose Distrikt’s very own Aardvarck (did you check his new album?)
One of the most interesting mixtapes was sent to me by Svetlana Industries, a new label based in Serbia. For an unusual and therefore exciting selection of dubstep and hip-hop beats, check out their first minimix.
Most fans of Theo Parrish certainly got his DJ set from The Do-Over already, otherwise I’m more than happy to mention it here.
For the jazz lovers I have one last mix today. Some of my Twitter followers called Blackclassical‘s anniversary mix the best jazz mix of all time. I will let you decide that for yourself.
