Take mentioned to me he was working on a rmx record that has now swollen right up to a double LP of rmxs. Dayum.
The 1st peak at the record was made available via (ahem) my curated All City podcast w/ Begin End Begin. However, the 1st official leak is out and the rmx is courtesy of Brainfeeder's Duchess of Digital TOKiMONSTA.
She takes what might be one of the more challenging riddims as she realigns what was an idiosyncratic and almost eccentric song w/ a surreal time signature:

TAKE - "Horizontal Figuration (Tokimonsta Remix)" by INCHES

Take's Double Remix CD should be out in Nov.

All City Presents: KALEIDOSCOPIC by mymanhenri [DWNLD]

So, this is my recent mix. Just a few days old. To be honest, I have this love hate relationship w/ these. Love the music. Hate to arrange it. Love it when it comes together well. Hate that I have to listen to it over and over again to realize after I should have done something different. Love the fact that ppl have sent over newness. Hate the fact that I forgot to include others on it. Love the fact that I can rant about this. Hate the fact that I AM ranting about this.
Hate the fact that when I make these, I', always thinking of what my neighbors are thinking right now - I live in a condo... ha.
At the end of the day, I'm happy about this mix for the fact that it was requested by a boutique label a greatly admire, All City, and that it reflects the enthusiasm in music that I've always had: metal, hip hop, electronic and all in between. I was going to call this potentially, MPCs n Beatbreaks v2, as it was going to be a long overdue follow up to v1 (which is still available to my surprise), but I chose otherwise. Kaleidoscopic was more apt for so many reasons, many of which will come to light soon. Anyhow, enough of the soliloquy. Here's a run down of the track listing...


#1. k - Metallica: Massive Metallica fan that I am (old Metallca that is), I've always loved their 6 string breaks, intros and melodies whether it be classical or electric axe - and they havea bunch of 'em. Just wanted to throw that one in for kicks...

#2. Begin End Begin - Take. TaKe sent me this one when he got wind that I was doing this podcast. This is a track from his forthcoming Only Mountains rmx record coming out on Alpha Pup later this fall. Double disc of goodies. Always loved his mature sound.

#3. YESterday - RLP. Man, what can I say, RLP sent me this some time ago and just came out on his amazing WORKS LP (that I have YET to review - my bad). But this is a banger. Always loved it, and those who've been to my 92 nights will have heard this in the past. WORKS is out now.

#4. Bubbling Hot - Leonard Dstroy. Man, dude and I have been in touch for a min. But this Higher Vibrations record he came out was just bananas (and was a free download). Bangers. Word is he might start to work w/ Alex B...

#5. Nothing is Always Something - Alex B .... And speaking for Alex B., his LP Moments will rank as one of my faves this year, no matter what else drops. This joint was just one of many stellar joints on this record. Good seeing you in Seattle this past weekend dude. #allday.

#6. Meloportation - Ultragamma I was flipping when I 1st heard this from my mellow my man Ultragamma. Holla'd and told him I had to have it. Ha. Shot it to me in an email. Love this joint. #TUFF GANG.

#7. Gooddnight - Elaquent. Eq is another dude who's banging em out. Great material. His 1st official full length, Persona is out in stores now, but this is a recently completed unreleased joint he sent me. Good look.

#8. Black Crayon - Ana Caravelle. This is a break that I spotted in this track by the Non Project's songtsress. There's a rmx LP coming out featuring edits from some noteworthies. Her Basic Climb EP is out now.

#9. Triceratopless - heRobust heRobust sent me this shortly after we got up. He had orignally sent me an email long ago that I overlooked (in box is craze some days), but we did connect, I was pretty blown away. Ask your boy Leonard Dstroy about that one... tight track.

#10. Dance Brace - Letherette. This is from their coming EP on Ho Tep, Alex's Nuts home. My original Letherette post has been getting tons of love. Had to throw this one on.

#11. Punta Skala - Don Leisiure. A joint that Darkhouse Family sent me recently. Again, their beat tape post gets top traffic and infact, I ran into this complete stranger in Seattle who told me he was feeling that one. Say wrd.

#12. Lady Linda (Devonwho edit) - Muxmool Pretty one indeed. A joint off that Muxmool rmx ep out on Ghostly right now. A Devonwho rmx to boot. Got love for both. In fact, got to see Muxmool rawk it out this weekend in Seattle. Dude got game. #allday. Had to miss Dev's set as the Airport was calling... next time man.

#13. L.I.A.B. - Onra. Banger. Period. BTW, Onra, live in Toronto Oct 10th, The Drake Hotel. done.

#14. Samolero - Sunclef. This is a funny story. I knew Sunclef's real name but always forgot his nom de plume. We actually met a few yrs back @ a mutual friend's bday. But I recently heard this joint and when I hit his soundcloud, I looked @ his image and was like...YO. That's xxxx! Anyhow, Suncleezy got some heat.

#15. Neighborhood Watch - Dibia$e. Forget about it. Machines Hate Me, bananas. For the cats that are on the hip hop side of town, this is for you #allday. This is a record YOU NEED in your life. Period. And again, got to break bread w/ Dibia$e this weekend. He killed it in Seattle. For all those in Chicago, look for him @ the Red Bull Big Tune National finals. He's not playing this yr.

#16. Still In Love (Blue Daisy Rmx) - Pollyn. One of my most prized purchases this yr. A solid 12"/track from Pollyn and moreover a magnificently unpolished rmx by the man who possesses melody and muscle. Don't adjust your iPod.

#17 Ancestors ((Dreamtime) Mark Pritchard rmx) - Gonjasufi. From the rmx LP coming out in just about 1 week's time, this re-edit is courtesy of the genius of Pritch. What a tune... speechless.

#18. Double Fifths - Teebs. A song that I 1st heard on a Mary Anne Hobbs show, and just played incessantly. A track which is coming out of Teebs' alluring Ardour LP from Brainfeeder/Alpha Pup. Shouts to Teebs who rawked it @ The RBMA showcase this weekend in Seattle. Looking fwd to having him in town Oct 30th.

#19. Mi Viejo - Ratatat. This is among a gang of songs i loved off the LP3 album. Hope you do as well.

#20. Waters Of Duality - Mono Poly. Why more ppl aren't talking about this Paramatma LP is beyond me (and a few of my peers). Anyhow, dude has the gift of melody as well, and this is one of the many joints I loved off his album.

#21 xxxxxxxx xxxxxx - xxxx xxxxxx. Taking a page out of Kutmah's book here. This isn't out and is one of my fave tracks right now that will go unnamed. Next.

#22. The Things You Left - Flying Lotus. Something that poppped into my inbox a few months back. Been playing it out and just cleared whether or not I could include this one. Unreleased. Love it.

#23. Before We Talked - Gold Panda. I must thank Raj @ leep for putting me on to Gold Panda some time back. His new LP is out on Ghostly right now, and this is one of the many I was feeling off Lucky Shiner.

#24 Tinitus - Comfort Fit. Man, I need to do a feature on dude. His songs have oft made my sets live, and this track is no exception of late. This came from the Private Primate EP from the good ppl @ Error Broadcast.

#25. Sun - Caribou. Dan Snaith made a banger. Bananas. Period.

#26. Sun (break) - Caribou Taken from the stems, to take you out...

So here it is. Again, massive shouts to O. A free download (click the arrow).

Jneiro Jarel Reunites w/ Kindreds Spirits: Fauna

Returning to where here released a his classic Three Piece Puzzle Jneiro Jarel reunites w/ Kindred Sprits to release a Brazilian riddim inspired oeuvre: Fauna.

A long time partisan of the Brazilian syncopated swing, Jneiro Jarel finds himself sinking deeper in his influences, superposition said structure and sound on top of his other love, that boom and bap.
None could be happier to the see these renewed vows to the sound, and to home where I 1st came to love Jneiro's music.
To celebrate Jneiro's return, Kindred Spirits are offering the lead single Amazonica in 7" format, along w/ a lim edition Fauna poster when you purchase either vinyl or CD of the album.

Lazer Sword: 808 mix [DWNLD]

As we slowly draw near the November release date of their self titled LP, Lazer Sword readies their tour and releases a mix courtesy of the good ppl over @ International Tapes: 808.

Much of that bounce that has been signature in many of their bangers is omnipresent - just like it's always been w/ the 808, evident of the evening that they have in store for all their guests - newcomers like habitués. Besides, The 808 kick drum make the girlies get dumb. ;) Here's wishing for ladies getting dumb 'clapping' for fun @ these shows. ;)

Mountie Kimby Mix [DWNLD]

Mount Kimbie is on tour. Did you know?? Well... as they embark on their 1st North Am tour, the duo né Dominic Maker and Kai Campos will start it all off in Seattle for Decibel Festival, showcasing much of that big bootie in a tight red track suit bizness - to put it plainly.
And to boot Toronto, they're coming to town Sept 30th @ The Drake. RSVP @ the Facebook event page here. And you know this...
And to blast off the tour, we have a mix courtesy of XLR8R of the young twosome.

Mount Kimbie Mix || download (via XLR8R)



More Gonja: Gonjasufi remixed by Shlohmo

As we impatiently wait for Gonajsufi's rmx LP, we now have some more arousing audio, adding to the anticipation.
It all started with the streaming of a remix by wizard of Aus, Mark Pritchard and his absolutely astonishing Ancestors Dreamtime re-edit.
Now, we now have audio from the Change (Shlohmo rmx)

A delightfully doleful, haunting hymn whose melancholic melody and sedate swing subsequently blossoms into a romantic reprise, a seemingly somber serenade. A breathtaking rework.

This Change (Shlohmo rmx) will be part of the Gonajsufi rmx LP out Oct 4th on Warp.

Shlohmo: Shlomoshun Redux [DWNLD]

You gotta love it. Shlohmo's rise has been far from shlowmoshun. In this last 12 month span, we've seen 2 releases from last name Laufer, first name Henry, aka Shlomo - and that to much acclaim. Such so that the EU side of his distribution channel suggested the idea of combining the 2 EPs and creating one LP/full length to be made available in CD format: Shlomoshun Redux, coming out the Friends Of Friends camp. Nice.
So Sep 27/28 will mark the availability of the LP and should be out in all record shops of ill repute. That should include Slinky for all Toronto massive.

Tracklist will look as follows:

Shlomoshun Deluxe

1. Tomato Squeeze
2. 7am
3. Spoons
4. Post Atmosphere
5. Hot Boxing the Cockpit
6. Dead Pixel
7. Teeth

Flying Lotus: Pattern+Grid World


Yet another EP from Flying Lotus to round out the banner 2010 year. From having the whole world on edge by releasing one of the most anticipated records of the year w/ Cosmogramma, to then taking his act on the road and creating orchestral renditions of the record, more recently w/ Miguel Atwood Ferguson, Brainfeeder's Baron has been going non stop.

Enter Pattern+Gold World, the 6 track EP from California's commander.
Again, if you've been to the numerous tour dates across the globe, you've been teased with snippets of the record unknowingly, wondering why the Shazam app on your iPhone is returning no results. Tomorrow is the day. 6 tracks of goodness to hold you down.
With tracks like Pie Face, Camera Day (which got 55k plays in 30 days) and the frenetic climax that is Physics For Everyone!, this EP adds wonderfully to that swelling catalog from Flying Lotus (Seriously though).

Flying Lotus || Pie Face

Flying Lotus || Physics For Everyone!

Pattern+Grid World is out today/tomorrow. Toronto, make sure you hit up Slinky for your copy. Mention this post to get a pretty smile from staff... and a gift too. ;) Ask for Paul.

Doodling With Jon Wayne [DWNLD]

Who knew? I used to listen to this grimmy record I had from Jon Wayne and respected dude as an MC all day. Met this La Habra, California born cat through Devonwho if i'm not mistaken as Dev had blessed him w/ a beat for a past record. But as he hit me a few weeks ago, he let me know that he had been busy banging away @ the beats. In fact, we are just days past his Low End Theory concerto.

So he'll be carrying his 1st beat CD @ his shows, Doodles, and will also be selling online.

Lone Gets Back To Werk: New 12" Coming

Man, I giggle like a little girl when I saw this in my inbox (shouts to all the little girls out there). Just like I giggle when I 1st bought his music.
This October, we're going to be treated to another rapturous single from Lone and the good ppl @ WerkDiscs.

Once In A While b/w Raptured

Some of you who grabbed the Kode 9 DJ Kicks comp will have heard this as the lead off track was this very Lone single. And a classic Lone track it is. Enter his vintage melodies and chords, and to boot, some steel pans?? Maybe i'll hear this during Caribana next yr and chop me a nice Trini. LOL. Regardless, this will be a 12" to keep your eyes and ears on. And it's coming out for all of us to enjoy now. FINALLY. Mark your calendar, Oct 25th will be date.

Gold Panda Gleams w/ Lucky Shiner [DWNLD] [VIDEO]

I will admit being late merging on the Gold Panda freeway, showing up around the Quitter's Raga onramp. I then pickuped the You EP which came out earlier this on Ghostly International, which I loved.
We are now treated to a new recording, a full LP this time, Lucky Shiner.

What brought me to Gold Panda's earlier recordings, still remains - bangers. Though this go @ it, he insisted in creating and writing more full songs, tracks with more structures and less banging breaks. Even better. Lucky Shiner's crackling beats and electronics still take center stage, and it's new found swings in cadence and tempo will still keep all listeners locked. Nothing lucky about that.

More Ardor For Teebs' Ardour [DWNLD]

I've expressed my excitement for Ardour previously, but I'll retell it: I can't wait. Anyone who has seen Teebs' art will soon realize that the audio from Ardour LP sounds as an accompaniment to the art he so adroitly pieces together into a wonderful collage.

This Brainfeeder balladeer has produced a chef-d'œuvre that is more Four Tet and Matthewdavid than Ras G or Samiyam, creating more ambient auras than thumping beats. And some of you know I love that sound.

October 18th, Teebs' Ardour drops worldwide via the good ppl @ Alpha Pup. None will be disappointed.

Lazer Sword Is Razor Sharp [DWNLD]

Low Limit and Lando Kal are Lazer Sword. It took me a min to make that connection some time back. They're also putting out some pretty impressive riddims. As with many in this beat space, I'm still uncertain how I came across dudes, but I have been keeping some tabs on the cats as I've found they've made simply certified bangers every time. That Golden Handshake EP was pretty sick and we're now in cue for the awaited self titled LP, Laser Sword.

I've not come across too many who have been able to create jovial and amusing ambiance within this community of producers, but this record once again demonstrates their dominance of digital, with dramatic and thrilling refrains as well as their flair and forte for that all so famed bounce, making this record extremely friendly for all to feast on. This self titled LP from Los Angeles label Innovative Leisure might be the one to make this Lazer Sword duo ubiquitous. I def hope so.

The lead single will be Batman b/w I'm Gone ft Turf Talk, which is available now and will feature rmxs Low Limit and Lando Kal themselves as well as contributions from Nguzunguzu and Warp's Rustie.

Fulgeance: The Glamoure EP [DWNLD]

Fulgeance has led a bit of a glamourous life. Between performing worldwide as Fulgeance, or his cleaner cut Peter Digital Orchestra alias, he's kep the dance floor going w/ his patented low club marca registrada.
Using his trusty MPC 2000 XL (yep, and he TRAVELS w/ it too), he deftly chops up samples and recreates it all in a club friendly tempo for all to get down with. Enter The Glamoure EP.

He once again brings us chops of his fave sounds, slicing up old school electro with that swing, deftly recreating that dance floor love in more leisurely tempos. Love it. In fact, whilst going through this EP, I couldn't help but recalling one of these riddim, then it all came back....

Fulgeance posted this sometime back as a dry run of what was to become the Glamoure EP's title track. Love it. The EP will feature 4 original tracks to bounce to as well 3 remixes by Kelpe, Gablé and Huess. Love it.

Some of the best news just arrived from Wolverhampton, UK: a Letherette EP is on it's way. Say wrd. After banging away @ what has become a quasi mythical mix by BTS Radio, we will be treated to a full 8 track EP in October from the duo, by way of Alexander Nut's Ho_Tep imprint.

Letherette consists of two producers and old school friends Andy Harbor and Richard Roberts. The Wolverhampton based duo were recently featured on Gilles Peterson Brownswood Electric compilation after an other track In July Focus began doing the rounds with tastemakers globally.

Finest Ego: Japanese Beat Compilation [DWNLD]

Maybe 1-2 yrs ago, I was going back and forth with a few cats in Japan as I had some interest in doing a Japanese profile of producers. Well, as usual I got caught up by [insert of one hundreds of possibilities here] and never got around to it. Le sigh.
Thank the lord for Project Mooncircle. They have just release a fantastic comp from Japanese players entitled: Finest Ego - Japanese Beatmaker Compilation

They simply showcase some of the rising stars of the Japanese beat scene and their works. You get to hear much of the western influences they cherish, w/ a twist of their own take on riddims.
And to boot, this had a 5 day window for a free download as of last friday Sept 3rd. TODAY might be the last day. so go nuts!

As of today Sept 8th, the download period has been extended for another few days. Have fun.

Presenting Illum Sphere Sept 9th, Toronto

Still trying to recall how Illum Sphere and I got up. Might have been via the Producer series from Fat City?? Still can't recall. Regardless, he's been putting in very impressive work in his part of the world. holding down a night in Manchester called Hoya Hoya, where the who's who of this lovely scene have passed through.
He's had releases w/ Fat City, Martyn's 3024 and as it appears, will be releasing music under the Hoya Hoya umbrella. Ha. Makes total sense.

Miguel Atwood Ferguson Ensemble & Flying Lotus: Live in LA [VIDEO] [DWNLD]

So weeks back, I recall watching a youtube of a soundcheck that had Miguel Atwood Ferguson and his Ensemble, as well as Flying Lotus tinkering away. Nothing really exciting, but I always wondered how the night actually concluded. Well, below lies the answer.

And outstanding orchestral execution of a Cosmogramma FLylo gem as well as a Dilla classic. + The way this was shot, me thinks a DVD is likely in the works. And the best part?? This live clip is available as a crystal clear download.
