As long as the lineup is as strong as the show they did at Fabric earlier in the year I'm sure it won't be too much of a challenge :facepalm:

Probably old news but loving this Illum Sphere track:

[yt]RjScf4Zt_7Y[/yt]

It's on the criminally short Fantastic Mr.Fox FACT mix

:) good skills man. Have you got a soundcloud or anything?


just a myspace at the moment. really different music from the rest of the luckyme lot though... http://www.myspace.c...eareamericanmen


Travis is alright, used to be a regular on IRC until he got more successful. I've done a few remixes for his stuff. It's good to see him branch out a bit, but you can defo feel his influence in there.

PS: go on namedrop, haha.


Can i hear a remix? i love his music, really think he's one of the best producers.


I read some decent reviews of you guys- good job!


thanks :) yeah it was awesome fun

Stumbled onto Grooveman Spot (aka DJ Kuo-g) via Dam-Funk's excellent Future Sound of Modern Funk mix for Mary Anne Hobbs. His new album Change Situations flips between fat synth funk and Slum Village style mellow electronic hip-hop. Shame it's so expensive to import the cd. Here is the official promo vid and a couple of album highlights:


Everybody / People Groove


Affection


Ponsonby Beat Down


Change Situations


Jelly Beans



Here's the aforementioned Dam-Funk mix : http://www.stonesthr...-of-modern-funk



Track List:
J1 – LiftOff [intro]
Devonwho – Slapshot
Reggie B – Khemitian Temple [Instrumental Version]
Teeko X. – BustAMOVE!GO!OFF
Chesca & Elliot York – Twilight Fades
B. Bravo – Two 2 Tango
AD Bourke – Cosmic Connection feat. Amalia
Distant Starr – Here We Go
Odidisee – Curl
Pudge – Jungle Funk [Jus Dance]
Subtitle x DâM-FunK – Experts
AD Bourke – One For Me
Grooveman Spot – Affection feat. Ahu
Teeko / Dibia$e / Devonwho – Young Funklords
Electric Wire Hustle – Unknown Instrumental aka Track 8
Computer Jay – Slipping!!
Jeremy Glenn feat: Tanika Charles - Turn Our Backs (www)
Fatima – Warm Eyes
Dam-Funk – The Funk Is 4 U/Outro [Unreleased]

Dam-Funk is playing live at Koko on Sep. 4th with support from Rustie, Dimlite, Master Blazter and Paul White. Hoping to go if I can bag somewhere cheap to stay.

Interview and mix from Lone c/o Knowledge.
He's moving away from the slower stuff and making some really nice wobbly hardcore/house.

C-Beams from the new Pariah EP is lovely:


Crossed Out is some nice floaty Joy Orbison style business too.


The EP (and his previous R&S single) are on Spotify, amongst another Pariah's releases.

The new Soul Jazz "Future Bass" compilation is streaming over at XLR8R, loads of new tracks from Four Tet, Mala, Untold, Ramadanman etc. I've listened through twice now and it's excellent stuff, the Ginz track is my favourite at the moment; total and utter dirt.

Stream here: http://www.xlr8r.com...-bass-compilati

Posted Image

01. Mala - Don't Let Me Go
02. Four Tet - Nothing To See
03. Untold - Fly Girls
04. Coki - Ransom
05. Ramadanman - Bass Drums
06. Black Chow - Air
07. LD - Mastermind
08. V.I.V.E.K - Talking Shadows
09. Randomer - Puzzled
10. Ginz - Boss
11. Harry Craze - Gone
12. Distal - Grape Donut
13. Sub Version - Free To Funk

After poking around on the net it's only 8.99 on triple Vinyl with free P&P at HMV and Amazon which is clearly ridiculous value. Out next week I think.

Grievous Angel's a badman, but there's something about the name "Future Garage" that is all wrong. It's a bit Intelligent Jungle.

Very nice indeed, that one had passed by my radar too.

At the other end of the spectrum, I caught this on a recent Electronic Explorations. Crank it up loud:

Blue Daisy vs TOKiMONSTA - USD

Disgusting.

Totally gorgeous stuff. Reminds me of old Third Eye Foundation.

Not totally sure where to put this but Lone has been sort of "future "funk" or whatever for a while. He's gone more housey of late, late-80s Chicago house/acid but with the trademark wavy, dreamy sound. Check those wavy rave stabs - oooo.


Can't get enough of the chords:


And here he is remixing Solar Bears, on his own Magic Wire label:


Lone is down to remix the new Underworld single out in November.

How hard has James Blake been killing it this year? Everything he's touched has been gold. I was listening to his revisited Electronic Explorations mix earlier and kept repeating the final track "I Never Learnt To Share" over and over as it's so damn good. Looked on Youtube when I got home and someone has just uploaded the entire thing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tE-BGXIxUo

The final minute is the sex, especially on headphones as the vocals layer and the synth line goes crazy on top. Oh my days.

+1 on the James Blake love. He hasn't put a foot wrong so far. Too many favourites, but here's just one:



edit: actually, I did a wee playlist when I had him over for a gig a while ago:

http://www.youtube.c...E2A387ED4C75CF1

I'd add a couple more to that now, CMYK, something off Klavierwerke etc...

The latest XLR8R podcast is fucking siiiiick, an almost entirely instrumental new grime mix from Elijah & Skilliam. Thought it fitted in with this thread as many of the tracks use similar aesthetic and ideas; really really fresh and if like me you'd wandered away from the Grime scene in the main due to all the silliness and posturing, a very welcome reminder of how ludicrously exciting the music can be when done correctly.

http://www.xlr8r.com...elijah-skilliam

The first time I listened to it I'd accidentally hit the 2x speed button on my iPod (the new playing at 45? :blah: ) and it sounded completely mental, but I'd recommend the correct speed :)

Really digging the 'aquacrunk' at the minute; mainly for the endless melody some of these guys pull out of the bleeps.

Been playing this a hell of a lot...



Cut from a Vex'd mix, there's a quality track that rolls in at around 1:30.



Checked this guy (doshy) out on Last.fm; there's some great stuff from him on soundcloud that appeared in Jamie Vex'd's Red Bull Academy mix which I'm absolutely gagging for a playlist for.

Just found out Vex'd operates under the monicker of Kuedo, and did some of the fine other bangers on that mix.
