25 additional tracks are awaiting you, Road Kill Vol. 2 is out today and available for only $10!

Oh, and before we forget. Om Unit’s Cosmic Bridge label has just released a free EP to all their Facebook followers.

Sweatson Klank – Pruma

We first mentioned the Outliers Vol. 1 project in September 2011. In short, a group of photographers, filmmakers and musicians set out to explore Iceland and make a documentary. Los Angeles-based producer Deru is curating the soundtrack and below you can listen to a track made by Sweatson Klank.

To find out more about Outliers Vol. 1, watch the trailer and follow the project on Facebook. The documentary will be premiered in Chicago on July 10th, if you’re in the area get your tickets!

Weekend Mixtapes

Well, I think you really should listen to the mixtape made by K15, but then there were some others worth checking out as well.

I’ve been following the Modeselektor guys on Soundcloud for some time and I’m used to getting nothing but 1 minute snippets. But this week, they uploaded this 35 minute long mixtape by Anstam, who has been releasing several EPs on their 50 Weapons label.

Los Angeles’ Tom Wilson releases music under the names of Take and Sweatson Klank. He’s currently on tour in Europe and for Playground Magazine he did an interview and a guestmix.

Brainfeeder signed Austin Peralta, son of legendary skateboarder and filmmaker Stacy Peralta, released a wonderful Sun Ra tribute on All City Records. Dazed Digital spoke to the young pianist and he made them an Intergalactic Mix.

Another interview/guestmix combo comes by the way of Inverted Audio, who spoke to 7even Recordings founder Greg G. He plays some new material from the label, get his mix over here.

And lastly, check out the mix by Montreal producer Jacques Greene for Oki-Ni.

Update Forgot to include the Kutmah guestmix for Tom Ravenscroft

Sweatson Klank – Little Time To Fly

Loving this new one released under Take’s Sweatson Klank moniker, certainly one of the more soulful tracks from the LA-based producer. This one is part of Hit+Run‘s all new Road Kill Vol. 1, a compilation featuring 29 tracks from the likes of Gaslamp Killer, Ras G, Kutmah, Matthewdavid, J.Rocc and others.

The whole package is available since Tuesday and you can pick up your digipack CD from Big Cartel or buy the digital release (with a bonus track by Mike Gao) on iTunes.

Take – Implosions

Following the Incredibright video, here’s the second video from Take’s Only Mountain album.

It is composed of footage taken from the Shinya Tsukamoto’s 1989 cyberpunk movie Tetsuo: The Iron Man. Have a look at the movies trailer, if you’re interested.

Take at Low End Theory

Following the release of his album Only Mountain, Take played it out live at LA’s Low End Theory.

This video was filmed and edited by the guys at Green Lab Cinema, who were also responsible for Take’s Incredibright music video.

In studio with Take

Don’t forget that Take’s new album Only Mountain will be out next week, here’s a free track from it.

Mixtape Monday #7

Just when I finished last week’s post, Sonic Router posted an interview with Tokimonsta, accompanied by a nice mixtape. As you might know, she is currently touring through Europe, check out her MySpace for dates.

Speaking of dates, I want to make sure my London based readers don’t miss this Thursday’s concert of Build an Ark at Cargo. The lovely Beyondjazz crew dedicated their latest radio show to the Ark’s very own Carlos Niño, so don’t sleep on this.

More fresh beats out of Los Angeles come from Take aka Sweatson Klank (via YSK) and the Low End Theory podcast makes a return with Daddy Kev and Diabase on the decks.

Kirk Degiorgio, the man behind countless monikers including As One, The Beauty Room and Offworld, has put together a minimal set for Little White Earbuds. It contains many of Kirk’s more recent productions like ART-8 and Isomer Shift.

To give José James upcoming album some more spin, Gilles Peterson has put together a brand new podcast. You probably haven’t heard the latest 12-inch yet.

Hyperdub’s LV has mixed a selection of dubstep, hip-hop and even jazz for French magazine TSUGi.

Musique Large has two new treats for you, La Mixette 13 was mixed by Paul Pre and Vol 14. by Swede:art (hint).

As last, I give you two unusual mixes. First is the 100th FACT podcast put together by Norwegian disco-krautrocker Lindstrøm. Bodytonic invited Sven Weisemann to do a “classical-meats-electronic” mix for their podcast.
