We’ll keep it short this week, because basically we think that you can’t ask for much more when Resident Advisor puts out a podcast mixed by Kyle Hall and XLR8R responds with someone like Omar-S. Well, we secretly hoped that a third party, say FACT Magazine, would jump in with another from Theo Parrish, but of course that didn’t happen (they have L-Vis 1990 this week!) Anyway, the before-mentioned third generation of Detroit producers also have new releases in store: Kyle Hall’s debut album The Boat Party and Omar-S’ Thank you for Letting Me be Myself.
Since we mentioned them on our Twitter stream earlier this week, let us also notify you about the new Beats in Space guestmix by Four Tet and Bibio’s podcast for The Fader.
All good, see you next time!
Let’s see, you got new mixtapes from Flying Lotus and Dego this week. Looks like you’re well supplied for the weekend already, otherwise here are some more.
The Valentine Mix from Breakbot still does it for me, but then I found this new one on Crazy Birds and it’s just as good. Summer disco vibes.
This Saturday, New York’s MoMa is hosting a Warm Up party featuring an allstar line-up of Four Tet, SBTRKT, Matthewdavid and Falty DL. The latter also has warm up for the Warp Up, a mixtape hosted by The Fader.
Lando Kal did a mix for Rush Hour sublabel Direct Current, playing nothing but records released on the label.
Beat Dimension’s Jay Scarlett‘s plays some new music on the latest La Menuiserie podcast, and Daisuke Tanabe has put togehter a promo mix for CDR.
Of course you can go visit Boiler Room‘s website anytime you’re in need for a mix. Recent guest selectors include Scuba, Mount Kimbie (live), Mark Pritchard, Photek, Guido or Space Dimension Controller.
With the World Cup over, it’s time to focus on music again. But before we leave South Africa behind, let me bring up this video, because it entirely changed the picture I had of the country (blame it on the media?)
Apparently, this is the 10th and last episode of Pitch Perfect, a collaboration by The Fader and Nike. Apart from these videos, they also organized the Youth Day in Soweto with concerts and workshops, bringing together football and art.
You might also want to check out this concert by Seun Kuti or the Pitch Perfect Mixtapes, but I recommend to start at the very beginning.
The Fader was speaking with two uprising producers from London, both releasing on the One-Handed Music label. They go by the names of Bullion and Paul White, the latter is about to release his debut album this month. You can read the short interview or just scroll all the way down for the mixtapes (that’s two mixtapes!), in both cases you need to click here.
Another quality mixtape, this time from Mark Pritchard under his Harmonic 313 moniker. His album When Machines Exceed Human Intelligence was just released on Warp Records and is a first favourite of the year – so far! What else could I say, the tracklist speaks for itself.
