'New Breed' by James BKS feat. Q-Tip, Idris Elba & Little Simz

The new single 'New Breed' by James BKS was released on the 15th of November with a variety of featured artists such as Little Simz, Idris Elba and Q-Tip.

 

As James says, the formation “proudly represent the New Breed movement, a different way to approach music with no borders, no judgment, no labels. We have learned from our past mistakes and victories and our eyes are on Africa, while in the meantime we embrace our own personal paths, respectively in the UK for Little Simz and Idris Elba, in the US for Q-Tip, and in France for me.”

 

The single is a accompanied by an animated Video directed by Stevie Gee and Essy May we can't get enough of.

'Potential For Havoc' is out!

Burnt Friedman recorded an EP for London-based LMD Recordings.

"The singular musician and producer has recorded a new EP for the label which will released in October on vinyl only next month. The EP see's him take a distinctive step forwards into the realm of club focussed material with the release built up of a carefully comprised assortment of leftfield house, drum & bass, dub and outsider percussion.


Titled 'Potential For Havoc' the EP marks a new chapter in a lengthy career which has seen Bernd Friedmann release music on a wide array of record labels such as Honest Jons, Dekmantel, Bright Sounds, Latency and many more. He has also released a prolific array of material on his own Nonplace label which continues to showcase the experimental fringes of electronic music and beyond." (words: RAN$OM NOTE)


Davide Squillace of Techno supergroup, Better Lost Than Stupid (Martin Buttrich, Davide Squillace and Matthias Tanzmann) recently stated in The Sun: 'In my opinion, he’s probably one of the most underrated artists on the planet. The way he uses Western and Easter rhythms is a unique blending of who he is; it’s almost impossible to pin him down to a genre or style. His obsession with rhythmical structure is what I would say makes him a true master of our time.'

 

Out since October 7th via LMD Recordings.

“Futuro anteriore / Presente continuo”: 'Aphàiresis'

'Aphàiresis' is a series of video music works that investigates the relationship between Materiality and Immateriality, between Presence and Metaphysics.

 

1)The most subversive and contemporary creative gesture, witnessing the Human Presence, can be the creative control of error, the controlled deviation of the numerical series in a dimension in which the human presence contributes to curving time, to grafting a colour into a sound, a cinematographic image into an aseptic texture, a musical sequence in the background of a tree, in a slower time, purified and richer in meaning.


2)We must occasionally remind the dust (aphar) that it was once man and immortal matter. A vibrant and pulsating presence anxieties. Uncertain whisper and accurate and imperfect “silere”. Fear of glances at the announcement and the contraction of the day. For always and again the shattered appears to us with each discolouring. Always and again we propose ourselves in the "nembi" 's molecular colours . It is felt more intense far away, where the lenses barely perceive the dense breath of other universes. It insuffles itself decisively and, by leaps and bounds, it infiltrates into our poor houses and bodies. A little sparkles out in the open and soothes in the sacred enclosure of dreams. Perhaps this is why a piercing pain resonates in the hollow organs and reverberates inadvertently. And so it is worthwhile to step aside and listen to one another on the sidelines. Let yourself be traversed by flows and be disoriented by sounds.

 

'Aphàiresis' by Gianluca Iadema is out since September 13th via Mille Plateaux/ Force Inc.

rRoxymore announces long-anticipated debut album!

'Face To Phase' is scheduled for release September 27th via Don't Be Afraid.

'Face To Phase, was born of rRoxymore's annual creative hibernation practice. Whereas her previous appearances for Don't Be Afraid - 'Thoughts Of An Introvert' Parts 1 & 2 - revealed inner worlds of saturated colour and natural expressiveness, she retreated into her studio at the turn of winter 2018 occupied with the idea of dismantling the dancefloor-centric pressure paradigm.

 

The resulting album, 'Face to Phase', finds rRoxymore methodically and mindfully stripping back to fundamentals: rumbling minimalist dub, sparse polymetric drums, boldy unpredictable melodic narratives and subtleties which hover out-of-reach or disappear into vapour. Forged by the spirit of club music cultures, 'Face To Phase' favours deep listening; resisting the temptation to reflect on the past or project towards the future, it's an album that is firmly rooted in the contemporary.

Shiraz Lane announce new single!

'Do You' will be out August 16th via Ranka Kustannus

"We are thrilled to announce the release of our new single 'Do You'. It is a groovy mixture of ground pounding riffs and angelic melodies that will captive the ears of all listeners. We think this is a solid successor for the style we set out to accomplish on our previous album ('Carnival Days'), but with evolved composing, arranging and production joining forces yet again with our trusted producer wizard Per Aldeheim.

After releasing two albums with Frontiers Music Srl. we felt like it was time to welcome a fresh breeze of expertise in the room and decided to made the transition continuing our journey with Ranka Kustannus (Riku Pääkönen). Riku is known to be one of the most ambitious names in the music business; originally signing bands like Nightwish and Children Of Bodom and helping them to the point in which they are today. 'Do You' is the first taste of what we have been cooking behind the scenes together and we hope that all you people out there will give it a spin, since this banger is bound to sweep you off your feet!"
