One of three unreleased P.U.D.G.E. remixes from the classic Flying Lotus album Los Angeles. None of them were even submitted back then, but now you can download them all for free!

José James – Warrior (Jus Wan Remix)

The Warrior Remixes from José James have been pushed back for three weeks to April 12, 2010. Following the remix from Sbtrkt, the other two mixes have now been added to the Brownswood page on SoundCloud, including this from Jus Wan.

Jus Wan is San Franciso based Justin Shields, a producer of deep dubstep sounds, whose previous releases include an amazing 12-inch on the Apple Pips label. You can check him out on SoundCloud or MySpace.

Apr 11, 2010 The 12-inch is out now, get your copy from Rush Hour or Juno

Dorian Concept Give-Away

Record Sleve

You might remember the Dorian Concept Remixes that Rush Hour gave away on the eve of the album release last year.

Austrian label (and promoter) The Loud Minority pressed two of these on a highly limited 7-inch which is on sale almost exclusively at their parties in Vienna. While a few copies were available on Juno Records for a short time, it now looks like you have to visit the Austrian capital in order to get a copy.

A. Jamie Lidell – Little Bit Of Feel Good
B. Dirty South – Stay Fly

Upcoming releases on TLM Records include new music from Isoul8, The Clonious or that Bill Withers edit. Each will be limited to 300 copies, with only a fraction of those making it to record stores.

And now for the good news.. Fortunately, my Austrian agent was able to get his hands on three copies of the Dorian Concept 7-inch, so I decided to give them away to three lucky ones. There are two ways to enter the competition:

1. You leave a comment and tell your own little Dorian Concept anecdote
2. You start following me on Twitter and click on the Retweet button below

This give-away will end next Sunday (February 28, 2010) and the winners will be chosen the day after. Make sure you enter a valid email-address alongside your comment, because otherwise I can’t contact you. Same goes for Twitter, you need to be a follower so I can send you a direct message. Don’t worry, I treat all personal data with the utmost respect!

March 1, 2010 It’s over, winners will be notified later today!

José James – Warrior (Sbtrkt Remix)

Here is another tune from one of my favourite new producers in 2009, London’s Sbtrkt. This time he puts hands on “Warrior”, the next single from José James which will be out on March 22, 2010.

Sounds a lot like Benga’s Emotions you might say – and I agree. Further remixes of “Warrior” are coming from San Francisco’s Jus Wan and drum & bass producer Rockwell.

Apr 11, 2010 The 12-inch is out now, get your copy from Rush Hour or Juno

The Politik Competition Winners

In January 2008, Mark de Clive-Lowe announced a remix competition for tracks from the self-titled album by The Politik. With much delay, the judges Phil Asher, Orin “Afronaught” Walters, Benji B and The Politik themselves announced the winners some minutes ago.

Head over to Mark’s blog to read about the winners, the remixers who were close and listen to the tracks!

The remix album should be out this summer with a new exclusive track called Dreams, remixes from Zed Bias, Maddslinky (yes, that’s also Zed Bias!) and C Swing Black Einstein. The Japanese edition will  come with a bonus mix from Jazzy Sport‘s DJ Mitsu The Beats.

Dimlite Remixes

Record Sleeve

Record Sleeve

Let’s start with the good news: A strictly limited 12-inch with remixes made by Dimlite will be released in the last week of February on the Zurich based Ish label.

The vinyl exclusive EP features a remix of Hot Heavy Heat by Carlos Niño (Build an Ark, AmmonContact etc.), an “ecstatic arpeggio-synth-theme that receives its much deserved space on a shiny disc of plastic.” On the flipside it’s once again the Flying Lotus, whose track Auntie’s Lock/Infinitum from the Los Angeles album gets the Dimlite treatment. You can listen to both tracks on the label’s website.

A. Carlos Niño – Hot Heavy Heat (A Chase Theme) (Hot Air & Thick Plastic Remix)
B. Flying Lotus – Auntie’s Lock/Infinitum (Re-finitum)

The bad news concern the album Prismic Valuta Rising. On his MySpace page, Dimlite writes that it will not be available anytime soon. It’s my assumption, he hasn’t found an appropriate label yet. Let’s hope things get sorted out for him! There is still another album with Prefuse 73 in the making (confirmation), which could now preceed his solo work.

Mar 1, 2009 Juno now has the record in stock

Dorian Concept Remixes

His name is Dorian Concept, his album When Planets Explode is due on January 29 on Kindred Spirit‘s Nod Navigators label. Until then, here is a give-away from the label – four remixes made by Dorian.01. Dabrye – Game Over (Dorian Concept remix)
02. Jamie Lidell – A Little Bit Of Feelgood (Dorian Concept remix)
03. Phat Kat & Guilty Simpson – Nightmare (Dorian Concept remix)
04. Three 6 Mafia – Stay Fly (Dorian Concept remix)
You can download all tracks for free, better hurry up!

Dec 16, 2009 Thanks to The Find Magazine, there’s a new download mirror for the remixes!

Feb 3, 2010 Vienna-based DJ collective The Loud Minority have pressed two of these remixes on 7-inch. These will be sold exclusively at their parties.

Reel People Bonus Dubs & Instrumentals

The Reel People‘s remix album of Seven Ways To Wonder is still young, but their label Papa Records has even more treats available just in time for Christmas. The Bonus Dubs & Instrumentals are only available as downloads and aim primarily at DJs to use them as tools.

So why am I even mentioning it, rather than writing about the normal remix album? Well, let’s have a look at the tracklist first.

01. Outta Love (4hero instrumental remix)
02. Outta Love (4hero dub remix)
03. Alibi (Dennis F’s Out On Bail dub)
04. Love Is Where You Are (Orto instrumental remix)
05. Love Is Where You Are (The Realm instrumental remix)
06. Love Is Where You Are (The Realm bonus beats)
07. It Will Be (Kyoto Jazz Massive instrumental remix)
08. Anything That You Want (Domu instrumental remix)
09. It Will Be (RP’s club instrumental mix)
10. Love Is Where You Are (RP’s club instrumental mix)
11. Outta Love (Alix Alvarez Sole Channel instrumental remix)
12. Outta Love (Alix Alvarez Sole Channel dub)
13. Outta Love (Alix Alvarez Sole Channel dub instrumental)
14. Outta Love (IG Culture’s Inter Outta dub)

You might have guessed it, I’m talking about the last track! Could this be the long sought-after version of the IG Culture remix that supposedly leaked and draw even more attention than the legit one? Unfortunately, the snippet is too short to judge, but if anybody knows more – feel free to share. If you’re as crazy about IG as I am, you don’t want to miss this one.

The bonus material was spotted on Traxsource and Juno Download, might aswell be available at your preferred download store.

Flying Lotus remixes Radiohead & The Long Lost

With his album out (and his Parisian Goldfish video stirring up blogs around the world), Flying Lotus did not sleep! There’s a remix for Radiohead’s competition, on which you can vote. And then you might remember Laura Darlington, voice on the tracks Unexpected Delight and Infinitum, also wife of fellow Daedalus. Well, Mr. and Mrs. Darlington have this project The Long Lost and will release their debut EP on Ninja Tune this autumn. Flying Lotus did two remixes for that, both are available for download over at the Jus’ Like Music blog.
