K15 – Rain’s Meditation

CDR X Dimensions is, as the name suggests, a collaboration between the long-running producer’s night CDR and Croatian festival Dimensions. Together they are about to release their first vinyl release, CDR X Dimensions: Dimension Sounds, which should be out later this month. One of the tracks featured on the record comes from an old favourite of our’s, London’s multi-faceted producer K15, and it’s probably reason enough to hit the pre-order button over at Juno.

Weekend Mixtapes

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.

Plastic People Alive (part 1)

By now you should have heard about London’s Plastic People facing a possible shut-down. The fine folks at Spine TV completed the first part of their documentary on the club and its important role in the worldwide scene of underground music.

Among the interviewed are the likes of Tony Nwachukwu & Gavin Alexander (CDR), Eric Lau, Funkin Even and blogger Amelia Ideh.

If you haven’t already, please take the minute it takes to sign the petition to Save Plastic People.

CDR Knowledge with Simbad

Here’s a nice little interview with London based producer Simbad. It includes bits from a CDR session, in which he explains some of his production techniques used on his track Soul Fever.

I should also mention that the last CDR session of this decade is taking place at London’s Plastic People tonight. For more infos visit the Burntprogress website!

CDR: Late at Tate

The Tate Britain hosted Tony Nwachukwu’s CDR event Late at Tate in late March. Taking “the concept of remixing to the gallery with DJing from CDR”, the likes of Soundspecies and Dorian Concept played their music to an audience at the “most surreal place” (Dorian).

Interviews, footage from the event (I spotted Domu in the crowd) and some insight on how the venue contributes to such a night
