Seriously, why do I write so little about Eric Lau? The London based producer has been occupying some of my record-shelf space and keeps amazing me with his quality collaborators such as Muhsinah & Kaidi Tatham, Dudley Perkins & Georgia Anne Muldrow, Tawiah and now another with Detroit’s Guilty Simpson.
The track is taken from his forthcoming The Mission EP, which is set for a release on Kilawatt Music in the first week of February.
January 31, 2012 Also check out this video of Eric talking about the making of The Mission, which will finally be out in three days!
This was supposed to be a collection of mixes for the weekend, but since Ms Riot was in town over the weekend..
Just hot off the press is the latest Resident Advisor podcast mixed by Martyn. As you all know, his new album arrived today, so maybe you want to listen to this mix on your way to the shop.
The last couple of mixes by Tropics became all-time favourites in no time, so I’m really looking forward to this new one for oki-ni.
2000black founder Dego is currently on tour through Japan. I wonder if he really needs promo mixes to fill clubs over there, but he made one just in case (and for everybody outside of Japan.)
And from there it’s easy to draw a line to Eric Lau’s Last Night on Earth mix for Put Me On It, which went online a couple of days ago already.
Set The Tone is already one of the biggest dance tunes for me this year, so I’ve been following all of Ossie‘s activity since then. Last week he came up with a mix for the Hyponik podcast and it’s a good one.
Jacques Greene was on Rinse FM last week, Phon.o contributed a mix for Electronic Beats, and the Boiler Room‘s back to back from Quest and Silkie is online.
One of the most anticipated albums for this month should be Severant by Kuedo. The other week he guested on the FACT podcast and I think he also made a mix for Mary Anne Hobbs.
If the last one in this selection gets any extra attention, then it shall be Sotu the Traveller‘s mix for DJ Broadcast.
Update This one just came in, it’s an impressive 95 minutes mix by Bristol’s Appleblim for FACT Magazine
New York based Dego (of 4hero and 2000black fame) will make a stop in London in September to bring his latest masterpiece A Wha’ Him Deh Pon? to the stage. As usual he’s supported by Kaidi Tatham and Akwasi Mensah.
The whole thing takes place on September 15, 2011 at London’s C.A.M.P. with support from Eric Lau and Tanya Auclair.
