Mount Kimbie – Made To Stray (DJ Koze Remix)

There’s hardly anything to say about Mount Kimbie that you don’t know already. Ever since the duo released their debut on Hotflush back in 2009, their career went uphill. Following their second album released on Warp earlier in the year, there are now four remixes available for your listening pleasure. Above you can stream DJ Koze‘s rework in full, the other remixes by Kyle Hall, Oneman and Lee Gamble can be heard on YouTube.

The “CSFLY Remixes” are out today on vinyl and digital, you can order your copy from Bleep, iTunes or your favourite record store!

Mount Kimbie – Home Recording

Following Made to Stray and You Took Your Time, the Anthony Dickenson-directed Home Recording is the third video taken from Mount Kimbie’s second album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. Another reminder for those that still haven’t listened!

Mount Kimbie – You Took Your Time

I’m glad to see Mount Kimbie return to form with their new video, departing from the dull CGI-excess that was the video for Made to Stray (though I’m usually a huge fan of Leif Podhajsky‘s work!) The new one takes us back to the ordinary life somewhere in English suburbia, filmed in beautiful black & white. “You Took Your Time” has been a personal favourite taken from Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, the duo’s second album released not too long ago on Warp.

Mount Kimbie – Made to Stray

I’m not a great fan of this, not after those last couple of Mount Kimbie, beautiful and intimate videos directed by Tyrone Lebon. But I do love this song, which I missed writing about when posted on their SoundCloud. Mount Kimbie’s second album Cold Spring Fault Less Youth is only about a month a way, it’s their first one on Warp Records, and easily one of my most anticipated releases (alongside the Thundercat LP) of 2013.

Mount Kimbie live at The Great Escape

In anticipation for the new Mount Kimbie album, I revisited their previous records over the weekend and listened to some of their live performances. And while at it, I found this video above, a recording of their show at Brighton’s The Great Escape festival this summer.

The duo’s follow-up to Crooks & Lovers will be out on Warp in the not so distant future (maybe even this year?), Fact Magazine had the chance to ask them a couple of questions on that.

October 19, 2012 There’s another new interview over on Pitchfork

December 24, 2012 Grab an audio recording of the live-show above!

Mount Kimbie – Carbonated

I remember having seen Mount Kimbie‘s video for Carbonated when it first appeared several months ago. Turns out I never bothered to post it. My bad, it’s a really nice video so I’m going to share it with everybody else who hasn’t seen it.

Like the videos for Before I Move Off and Would Know, this one was directed by Tyrone Lebon.

Mount Kimbie – Daytrotter Session

Ahead of their show at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, British duo Mount Kimbie recorded a little live session for the guys at Daytrotter. Four of these tracks are available for download and you can listen to them below.

You can grab the download by hitting the tracks tab in the player above or from the Daytrotter website (requires registration).

There’s also a recording of the party they played later at the festival alongside Young Turks. If you didn’t hear that one before, head over to SoundCloud for a stream.

Mount Kimbie – Carbonated EP

The final single off Mount Kimbie‘s much acclaimed Crooks & Lovers brings my favourite track to the turntable once again. In addition to that, the double 12″ features two previously unreleased tracks and remixes from Klaus, Airhead and Peter van Hoesen. Listen to snippets from all tracks below.

01. Carbonated
02. Flux
03. Bave’s Chords
04. Adriatic (Klaus remix)
05. Carbonated (Airhead remix)
06. Carbonated (Peter van Hoesen remix)

You should find Carbonated in all good record stores as of today. Besides the vinyl release you can also get it on CD single (!) or digital download. Whatever you prefer, get it directly from Hotflush or online shops such as Bleep, Juno and iTunes.

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.

Weekly Bits 25/2011

The Weekly Bits collect some of the most noteworthy news from our Twitter stream. Let’s see if you missed any of these.

With his self-titled debut album finally in stores, here’s a music video for SBTRKT‘s single featuring Yukimi Nagano

Another much anticipated album is Zomby‘s forthcoming Dedication. Two of its tracks are available now on a highly limited 7-inch and one of them is a free download.

Drexciya‘s DJ Stingray contributes to Electronic Explorations second Legends Guest Mix Series, playing a selection fast paced techno.

Another Detroit legend, Planet E founder Carl Craig, has been interviewed by We Love Music. The video also features comments by the likes of Derrick May, Paul Woolford and The Mole.

Spain’s 2011 Sónar festival came to an end, RBMA Radio has caught some of the live-sets including these from Teebs, Illum Sphere, Cosmin TRG or The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble. BBC Radio 1 aired Scuba’s set on this week’s Essential Mix, and Benji B has even more.

I got two more mixtapes for you: DJ Andy Smith’s never released Document 4 and this Groove Merchants radioshow with a guestmix from Mount Kimbie.

Lastly, here’s the sad story of Andy Baio, who recently got sued by Kind of Blue cover photographer Jay Maisel for “using” his picture for his Kind of Bloop project.

Mount Kimbie – Maybes (live at Abbey Road)

Watched this video from the Abbey Road Debuts the other week, but you might have noticed it’s been kinda slow around here lately. Being a fan of Mount Kimbie, I thought I share this one with you.

Please comment/like the video here, as I can’t embed the original due to restrictions. Hope the YouTube video stays for the time being.

I think it was SBTRKT, who mentioned on Benji B he had a session recorded at Mount Kimbie for the Debuts series, so better keep an eye open for that one!

Mount Kimbie – Before I Move Off

The guys of Mount Kimbie just posted a link to the new Jamie Lidell video, but unfortunately it doesn’t play for me. Instead I discovered the duo has a new video out themselves, you can watch it below.

Just like their previous video for the track Would Know, this one was directed by Tyrone Lebon.

Mount Kimbie – Ruby (live)

There is a new Mount Kimbie EP in sight and it goes by the name of Blind Night Errand. It will be out in late November and features two tracks from their album Crooks and Lovers, an alternate mix of “William” and a live-version of “Maybes” recorded at Berlin’s Berghain.

A1. Blind Night Errand
A2. Before I Move Off
B1. William (Dayglo Mix)
B2. Maybe (Live @ Berghain, Berlin)

Which brings us to the track you can hear above. It was recorded at the same night at Berghain, but it’s available as a free download. To get it, all you need to do is sign up with your email address.

I wouldn’t mind a full release with more live material, it could turn out equally good as Moritz von Oswald’s recent Live in New York album.

Anyway, the Mount Kimbie EP will be out on November 28th, 2010 on Scuba’s Hotflush label.
