A couple of days ago, our favourite Viennese label Affine unveiled their 14th release, a 7-inch by Sixtus Preiss going by the name of “Lololo”. One of the two versions on the record was now graced by the video you can watch above, an brilliant montage of footage showing various musicians (presumably found on the internet.)
The flipside of the same record, the original version, can be heard below:
If you like what you hear, you can grab the entire digital release for only €2 or pay €5.90 for the vinyl. Both are available from the Affine shop on Bandcamp.
Vienna’s Dorian Concept is back with a new track, or an out-take from the recording sessions for his last album Joined Ends. The track also serves as a reminder for this Saturday’s (sold out) live show at London’s Roundhouse, where Dorian plays in support of Cinematic Orchestra.
Earlier this year, Vienna’s Affine Records released a new record by Cid Rim, his first on the label since 2005’s Full Nelson EP. The label has now revealed a video for its title track, directed by long-time collaborator Gregor Lehrl.
If you haven’t heard any of the music on Charge/Kano before, make sure to check out Jameszoo‘s remix as well.
Vienna’s Cid Rim has a new record out on Monday, this time released through his hometown’s Affine Records. Among the three tracks you will hear Cid’s trademark synth-lines and complex drum layers and a bugged out remix from Amsterdam’s Jameszoo, which is easily my favorite on the record. You can pre-order your copy today on Bandcamp or pay a visit to your favorite record store next week.
When this (totally unnecessary) sequel to Blade Runner was announced the other day, I could not help but fantasise about Kuedo doing its soundtrack, to me that’s the obvious choice. It’s unfortunate that such movie projects are not made to fill the hearts of fans with love, but to make a quick buck out of their nostalgia. Well, don’t be upset, it doesn’t help. I recommend pressing that play button above, then close your eyes and picture flying in a Syd Mead-designed flying car over dystopian Los Angeles.
As you might have noticed, I’m rather busy with other things than blogging lately. But it’s always worth taking the time when there’s some Dorian Concept related news, don’t you agree? It’s still a month to go until his new album Joined Ends drops on Ninja Tune, but the Vienna-based producer couldn’t help it but play a couple of new tunes at yesterday’s Boiler Room event in his hometown. He also brought some friends, namely his fellow Affine family consisting of Cid Rim & The Clonious, Sixtus Preiss et al.
It’s been a while since Austrian producers Mieux turned heads with their fun edit of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s Next Episode. Today, the duo of consisting of Minor Sick and Feux shared another free download via Cologne’s Up My Alley label. Just the kind of tune I needed to get me out of the low after a hard day’s work.
We’ve had a very special relationship with Dorian Concept since the early days of this blog (also our first interview!) and have been speculating about a release of his new album in autumn for some months now. As of today, the news is official: Ninja Tune announced the release of “Joined Ends” for late September and shared the track you can hear above. This also makes Dorian Concept’s relationship with the label a full circle, for some of you might remember him posting his early attempts at their forum. Well done, well done!
You can pre-order Joined Ends from the Ninja Store, before it drops in record stores on September 22, 2014.
July 11, 2014 You can also listen to the track on Spotify!
Taken from last year’s excellent Muty City EP by Austrian drummer and producer Cid Rim, watch the official video for Animus/Anima, directed by Belgian “visual gangster” Maxime Quoilin. If you somehow missed Mute City when it came out last September, you can listen to it on Spotify or buy your copy on Bleep or iTunes.
If you’re following Cid Rim on Twitter, you were probably anticipating the radio session he’s been teasing us with for days. Apparently, the thing is hitting the airwaves today on Austrian radio (Dorian Concept did that, remember?) and for the rest of us, here is a track to get a glimpse of what that mind sound like. Also, with the end of the year approaching, I think this is a good reminder of the Mute City EP, which the Austrian drummer and producer released this autumn on Glasgow’s LuckyMe label.
Austrian website They Shoot Music visits musicians at their home or other spots in the city of Vienna. New on the list of visited producers is LuckyMe-affiliated Cid Rim, who plays a cut from his Mute City EP released a couple of months ago. Take notice, that you’ll have to enable the subtitles, as they’re not hardcoded into the video. And if you like that video, also check out an older one with Dorian Concept!
I have a soft spot for good music videos, no doubt about it. But when you look at the last couple of posts on this website, it might the impression that I’m posting nothing but videos. Don’t worry too much about that, it’s only caused by a lack-of-time period that should be over soon.
While we’re still waiting to hear new music from Dorian Concept, his friend and Affine label-mate Cid Rim readies his second release on Glasgow’s LuckyMe imprint. Titled “Mute City”, the five track EP is his first release since last year’s mini-album and his first physical output on the label. Pitchfork premiered the full version of Extend Ranges the other day, now it’s ten days of patience until we can pick it up in record stores around the world.
