Lukid keeps the “old ivories tinkling”, with this piano music mixtape for Blowing Up The Workshop. Debussy, Ravel, Cage and everything you’ll be looking for on a Sunday.
Not only that the new Solid Steel website is nothing but a disaster in user experience, it appears their mixes are no longer available for download. Fortunately, there’s still the Mixcloud option to listen to their mixes, which makes it more bearable. This week, you can listen to mixes from Anthony Naples (above) and Four Tet.
Stones Throw also has a bit of a weird podcast policy, since there’s no way of listening without iTunes. However, I suggest you give latest episode a try, since it was compiled by the label’s very own Mndsgn.
And since we like to end the selection with and oldie, here’s a Kemistry & Storm mixtape, originally recorded in 1995.
Following the teaser video in September this year, Liberation Technologies just released new music by London-based producer Lukid. I already expressed my love for the entire EP on Twitter, now you can find out for yourself. Crawlers is available now on 12-inch and digital download, or you can take a listen to the stream on Spotify.
Finally a sign of life from London-based producer Lukid, who we haven’t heard from since 2012’s Lonely At The Top album on Werkdisc (and what happened to those promised new Glum releases?) The new record is called “Crawlers” and will be out on September 29 on the Liberation Technologies label. First glimpse in that video by Nic Hamilton. Hungry for more!
“I wanted to take the opportunity to do something different for this Solid Steel mix and I decided to approach the mix as if I was ‘back from a good night out’ and winding down with some late night weird selections from my vinyl collection”, says Bristol’s Pinch about his guestmix for the show.
PVT‘s fourth studio album Homosapiens came out earlier this year and was already remixed by the likes of Dorian Concept and Nathan Fake. Their next single Vertigo adds some more remixes to that, including this one by Werk Discs associate Lukid. It will be out on June 3rd and you can pre-order one of 300 vinyl records (or a digital release) on PVT’s Bandcamp page.
Black Acre is a label to have an eye (and ear) on, otherwise you’d miss out on a lot of good music from a diverse scene of underground producers. Last year’s albums by Blue Daisy or Hyetal have found many fans, and there’s no need to argue about the talents that Fantastic Mr Fox, Lukid, DZA or 1000names are. You find a bit of all that on the label’s new Rebuilds compilation.
01. Fantastic Mr Fox – Sketches (SBTRKT remix)
02. Hyetal – Diamond Islands (Boddika remix)
03. Blue Daisy & Anneka – Raindrops (John Talabot’s Cosmic rework)
04. Hyetal – Phoenix (Fantastic Mr Fox remix)
05. Memotone – Multicolour (Lukid remix)
06. 1000names – Pocket Calculator (Lynx & Hellrazor)
07. DZA – Bullseye (feat Mujuice & Non – Dizz1 remix)
08. Hyetal – Searchlight (Stay+)
09. Blue Daisy & Anneka – Blood Petal Roses (Sunken Foal remix)
10. Von D – Truth (Tes La Rok remix)
Many of these tracks have so far been available on vinyl only, so make sure not to miss it if you don’t collect records. For me, the Phoenix Remix (listen below) makes it worth buying alone.
You can buy Black Acre presets Rebuilds from fine places such as Boomkat, Bleep – or iTunes.
It’s been a while since the last Svetlana record came out, but now Serbia’s finest label is back with new music from BNJMN. Most people might associate this name with his brilliant debut on Rush Hour, but in fact BNJMN released on Svetlana before under the name of Jackhigh.
On 141 you get to hear “deep aquatic originals” plus two more remixes by Lukid and Kelpe to complete the package. Listen to the preview below.
01. One Sea
02. We Are The Weather
05. One Sea (Lukid remix)
06. We are the weather (Kelpe remix)
You can already get the digital release from Svetlana’s Bandcamp page, but also from regular online retailers such as Bleep or Boomkat. The Kelpe remix is exclusively available from Boomkat at this moment, Bandcamp should follow next week.
The track above is one that didn’t make it on the release, instead you can download it as a free taster for the full release.
Alright, so it’s Tuesday already, but I don’t think you’d want to wait another week for a proper Mixtape Monday.
I’ve been waiting a long time for a new Isolée album. Now that it’s finally out, he’s been doing some mixes to spread the word. Like the all new Resident Advisor podcast or the guestmix for Beats in Space from some weeks back.
Speaking of Beats in Space, I also have to recommend their latest show which features this guestmix by DMX Krew.
I wonder sometimes why some blogs refuse to set trackbacks. They’re not only the foundation on which all social networking is based on, they’re also a great way to discover great related content. Like these mixtapes by Domu that just surfaced. Whether previously unreleased or not, you already know he’s one of the best DJs in recent years.
For the last week or so, I was hardly listening to anything else but that Theo Parrish Special on Benji B’s show. Listening to the iPlayer is more important than you might think, it’s a direct way to measure the popularity of a show – something that might in the end decide whether a show will be continued. In the case of last week’s show I did all I could, but now you can no longer listen to it. Unless you download a recording.
I have posted this old Dego mix for BTS some weeks ago, now it’s officially back in the archive. Not to be confused with his more recent guestmix, posted in February.
To give his all new 12-inch an extra push, former Bugz in the Attic man Seiji has posted a new mix. Available as stream and download.
Werk Discs’ very own Lukid has put together this mixtape for Brainfeeder and it’s a good one. It’s one of the better mixes I heard in a while and it features a lot of his own productions and music from his peers.01. Lukid – Spiller
02. Process – E1
03. Nochexxx – Ritalin Love
04. Actress – San Siro
05. Lukid – Just Like Havana
06. Lukid – Untitled
07. Lukid – Veto
08. Infinitirock – Drumhead
09. Actress – Credit Da Edit
10. Newworldaquarium – Star Power
11. Topaz Rags – Dead Horses
12. Martin Dupont – Your Passion
13. James Pants – Mass
14. Bullion – Crazy Over You
15. Loops Haunt – Dusk Mechanics (Samoyed Remix)
16. Anthony Shake Shakir – One Beat (Just Won’t Do)
17. Lukid – Untitled
18. Millie And Andrea – Ever Since You Came Down
19. Lukid – Hair Of The Dog
I hope this means his new album Chords is just around the corner. Until then, go and download the mix!
With music from Zomby, Lone, or his own Actress moniker, Darren J. Cunningham’s Werk Discs imprint has continously released some highly acclaimed albums in the last couple of years. What most of you will agree on, is that we would have loved to see those albums released on proper vinyl.
My favourite mixtape this week comes once again from Lukid, who put this together for the LuckyMe collective. You will also have the chance to catch him live on Ustream later today. Lukid streams every Monday at 9pm GMT.
FACT Magazine has two new remixes I want to recommend. Last week’s podcast was put together by Simbad, this week it’s UK techno legend A Guy Called Gerald stepping up.
I already mentioned Floating Points’ mix for XLR8R, but there’s another one from him recorded at a Numbers party last month. You can download it here.
