It’s been a while since the last weekly bits, but now that the new website is complete there should be more time for regular posts.
British duo Autechre are back with a new album. It’s their 10th already and it will be released in March on Warp Records. Titled “Oversteps”, it will be available as a deluxe vinyl edition designed by TDR among other formats. They have also announced a tour through Europe, kicking of on March 11.
Bleep teamed up with British photographer Shaun Bloodworth and designer Stuart Hammersley (GiveUpArt) to create a “musical and visual document”, titled North / South / East / West (NSEW).
Both artists have built their reputation in the dubstep scene, Bloodworth being the photographer for the iconic album covers from Skream or Benga or the L.A. Dope series. In most cases, Hammersley does the graphics for the mentioned products, but he is also responsible for the (corporate) designs of Tempa, Apple Pips or London’s FWD club.
On 14 prints, NSEW documents artists from the North and South UK and the East and West coast of the United States. In addition to that comes a CD with 12 tracks from those artists, including Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Hudson Mohawke, FaltyDL and Headhunter among others (full tracklist below).
01. Daedelus – A Bloodworth
02. Hudson Mohawke – FUSE
03. Geeneus – Ultrafunkula
04. Flying Lotus – Comet Course (Matthew David Alternative Mix)
05. Headhunter – Collecting Butterflies
06. Falty DL – Some Day My Queen Will Come
07. Flying Lotus – Rickshaw
08. Skream – Slumfunk
09. Mike Slott – Giants Meet
10. Kotchy – You Know You
11. Rustie – Bad Science
12. Taz Buckfaster – Au Revoir
