Nosaj Thing - Home

It’s been three years since his last album Drift came out, but to me it feels much longer. The wait is almost over, following a first teaser, Jason Chung’s second album as Nosaj Thing will be out end of January. Titled Home, the record will be out through Los Angeles-based label Innovative Leisure and it features vocal collaborations with Kazu Makino and Toro y Moi. Here’s a look at the full tracklist.01.

Weekend Mixtapes

One of our 2011 favourites, Bristol’s Hyetal, has been this week’s guest on Solid Steel radio. Listen or download his mix on their SoundCloud page.

Seems London’s Bullion had to struggle a little with his Tom Ravenscroft remix. Haha, sorry!

Our latest podcast contributor Jay Scarlett recommended this Yosi Horikawa mix for Playground Mag, you might find it easy to agree on.

Here come the big sites: A Guy Called Gerald, Luke Vibert for Dazed, Daedalus for FACT Magazine, and Kowton for Dummy.

Lastly, you might want to check out the new BTS Radio guestmix by Toro Y Moi.

Mixtape Monday #19

We already mentioned mixes from Legowelt, Ahu, 8bitch and Black & Blue in yesterday’s weekly bits, today we already got some more to share.

It’s Valentine’s Day and like every year, Hudson Mohawke has put together a special tape for the occasion. Another mix for lovers comes from Krystal Klear, titled Everything is Shit….Except You Love.

With Swim, Canada’s Caribou delivered an album that found itself in many best-of lists by the end of last year. For Resident Advisor, main man Dan Snaith made a contribution to their podcast series.

Earlier this month, Toro Y Moi delivered a mix for FACT Magazine and it’s been a personal favourite of mine over the weekend. Watch out for the new album coming out later this month!

More mixes come from New York based Brendon Moeller, who made a mix for Field Records. Lone has recorded a stream-only mix to promote his show at this year’s Bloc Weekend.

And lastly, we’re revisiting Silkie‘s mix for RBMA Radio, originally aired in 2009.

Update This one just came in, it’s Bullion’s guestmix for Benji B‘s show last week.

Toro Y Moi – New Beat

Looks like there’s a new album by Toro Y Moi to see the light of day later this month. Titled “Underneath the Pine”, it is set for a release on Carpark Records. Here is a new video giving you a first impression of what it sounds like.

In the middle of writing this, I also came across another video. Thought I’d sneak it into this post as it’s another track from the same album.

If you like what you just heard, make sure to hang around your favourite record store around February 22nd, 2011.

Thanks to the lovely Kissey Asplund for the heads up!
