Hear Thom Yorke’s eclectic new 90-minute BBC Radio 3 mixThom Yorke Mi Unheard Solo Track

Composer, multi-instrumentalist, and Radiohead lead Thom Yorke has curated a new 90-minute mix for BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction. The mix opens with Radiohead’s “Burn the Witch” and showcases an expansive multi-generational span of experimental prowess from artists like Pierre Henry, Aphex Twin, and Mars89. All throughout, Yorke shares his love for experimental vocal techniques, even sprinkling in some classic Stockhausen, and the legendary krautrockers Faust. It’s a far cry from the recent atmospheric mix he curated for BBC Radio 6, but as equally demanding of a listen.

1. Radiohead – “Burn The Witch”
2. Justin Taylor & György Ligeti – “Continuum”

Boys Noize’s new ELAX alter-ego announces debut performance, drops Friendship Mix ahead of cruiseBoys Noize Mayday Lil Internet

Boys Noize is amid the launch of his new solo side project, ELAX, and since the new moniker’s tantalizing debut, “Reaktor” on Solomun‘s Diynamic imprint over the summer, fans have been eager to find out what Alex Ridha actually has up his sleeve. Now, it appears the project is ready to fully materialize with the announcement of Boys Noize’s debut performance as ELAX. Ridha will take the stage at Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles on December 7 to unveil his new alter ego. Shortly thereafter, ELAX will also sail on The Friendship‘s maiden voyage with longtime friend and collaborator Destructo‘s AMFAMFAMF brand.

ELAX’s live debut will come exactly one month after the BNR head honcho’s first delivery under the new banner, recently dropping his two-track Sueño EP as the first real insight into the project’s sonic direction. Now, Ridha is upping the ante, proctoring a full hour-long mix as part of The Friendship’s running mix series to hype both the debut club appearance and the following ELAX performance aboard Destructo’s new floating festival.

Cruise through the first extended taste of what ELAX plans to offer, and grab tickets to the Sound Nightclub debut performance below.

Axis 205: Lost Frequencies drops off fresh mix, talks touring with The Chainsmokers & more

Axis 205: Lost Frequencies drops off fresh mix, talks touring with The Chainsmokers & moreLost Frequencies Ais 205

Past hits like 2014’s “Are You With Me” have made Lost Frequencies a certified star in his home country of Belgium. Stateside, the melodic electronica virtuoso has dazzled crowds opening for heavyweights including Don Diablo, and more recently The Chainsmokers. Releasing a steady stream of wistful deep house cuts through Armada and his own aptly named Found Frequencies imprint, Lost Frequencies is carving out his own four-to-the-floor formula with lethal crossover appeal.

This year has been another big one for the producer, with high profile slots at festivals like Electric Zoo, and infectious singles like “Melody” and “Like I Love You” leading the way. On the heels of a standout remix of the newly formed LSD’s “Thunderclouds,” the Lost Frequencies dropped by to look back on his whirlwind year and talk what’s next – and drop off a textbook feels-inducing journey for the 205th edition of our Axis series. In typical form, the one-hour ride blends anything everything soothing and uplifting, spanning recognizable hits and some of some juicy IDs from the artist and his label mates.

You were recently listed on DJ mag’s top 100 DJ list at #17. What are your feelings about making it, and the recent online backlash to the list? 

It felt amazing to hear that I reached #17, I climbed 9 places which I certainly didn’t expect and I’m very thankful to all my fans and friends supporting! I think with a list, poll, or anything that “ranks” artists will always face backlash, there is always someone, or another scene, that doesn’t agree! But overall, the response has been very positive and I’m grateful to be recognized alongside so many leaders in dance music!


Last year, you were able to join The Chainsmokers on tour. What are some personal lessons and takeaways from the experience? 

I did, it was crazy! I learnt; pranks can bring you all together and keep you sane on the road – it was one of my favorite memories in such a huge year, Alex and Andrew are so much fun and the vibes were crazy! It was amazing to be able to take my sound to so many huge arenas in the States.


Outside of your own music, what can fans expect soon from your recently revealed Found Frequencies imprint? 

We’ve just released remixes from of ‘Like I Love You’ but for me, it’s also important for us to help introduce new artists that are making music we think is really cool! We have new music from Pretty Pink, Jameson and Mordkey next month, get ready!

The Lost Frequencies catalogue is stuffed with vocal features – Who’re some artists on your wish-list to collaborate with next?

I would love to work with MØ, her voice sounds so fresh, different and exciting on every release.

What’s next in the evolution of the Lost Frequencies sound?

My recent remix for LSD’s (Labrinth, Sia & Diplo) latest track I really enjoyed but I have already started working on new tracks – they may appear on my next album but nothing is set in stone yet, my calendar is super busy but new music is something that is definitely on my mind. You’ll be able to keep up to date on anything and everything across my social media!

Shaq, RL Stine, and more hop in the cut on RL Grime’s shiver-inspiring seasonal mix, ‘Halloween VII’

As RL Grime fans will attest, the indisputable sweetest treat of Halloween weekend won’t be found among bowls of candy on porches or in drink specials catered to bar crawl crowds, but rather in RL Grime’s annual Halloween mix. As much a necessity of costumed celebration of the October holiday as face masks and ghoulish makeup, Grime’s Halloween mix is a quintessential component of Halloween each year. 2018 marks seven consecutive years of Grime’s release of the slapping seasonal product, and as in past years, Grime satiates with his trap take on spooky season.

“Halloween VII” sees Shaq, RL Stine, and Jake Foushee hop in the cut alongside Grime to collaboratively stagger shiver-worthy drops throughout the mix. A heavy hybrid of hip-hop selects and trap-oriented inclusions, “Halloween VII” provides a forceful soundtrack to weekend festivities. With no calories, no sugar, and no consequential hangover, the one-hour mix bears absolutely no tricks.

The Magician has unveiled his latest edition of his Magic Tape mixtape series. Its 84th episode clocks in at over an hour, delivering a range of disco, hip-hop, house and generally groovy tunes in that time. The drop of the monthly mix follows the Belgian producer’s latest remix of The Chainsmokers‘ “Side Effects” and Michael Calfan’s “It’s Wrong,” as well as his original “Build a Fire” released in summer 2018. Like magic, The Magician has managed to find a way to enchant fans and blend together a satisfying mixture of sonic elements for years on end, with no sign of slowing down. While each edition of the Magic Tapes series can be found on SoundCloud, listeners can also subscribe to the updated playlist on Spotify

Autumn has arrived, and with it, Halloween season. The ghoulish holiday is inching closer, and, per its usual night-focused nature, is bringing along an array of dance music events with it. One such event is the unstoppable Minimal Effort in LA, known for taking obstacles in stride and overcoming them to become one of the city’s top hotspots for underground electronica. This year’s gathering has recruited Boys Noize, Tim Engelhardt, Audiofly, Ardalan under his new Ardy Party project, and more.

Whomadewho, a rising name in the deep and melodic world, will also be making an appearance at Minimal Effort’s hallowed affair, where he will join his peers in providing an enchanting time to guests spelled across intricate percussion and heady instrumentals. Having spent the better part of two decades in the experimental realm as a live act, they’re primed to put on a performance that will remain imprinted in Minimal Effort history for good while. Turn on the mix, and float away — but make sure to come back down to Earth by the time they take the stage on Saturday, October 27.

REZZ unleashes 13 new tracks with Halloween-inspired ‘A Nightmare on REZZ Street’ mixPhoto Oct 18 4 47 49 PM Min

Whenever REZZ changes her avatar on Twitter, her fans know she’s plotting something new. Last week, she launched a Halloween-themed website that featured ghoulish, REZZ-centric illustrations, with an active countdown to something called “A Nightmare on REZZ Street.” Now that the clock’s reached all zeros, space mom has blessed fans with 13 unreleased IDs, along with visual accompaniment just in time for the spooky holidays.

The mix showcases her signature gritty sound work and haunting chord patterns with audio snippets from classic horror films in-between. There’s even an ID collaboration with 13, a frequent collaborator of hers on tracks such as “DRUGS!” and “The Crazy Ones.” The entire projects brings out a darker side to REZZ, celebrating the aura that’s made her somewhat of a cult leader.

The start of the 30-minute video follows REZZ’s journey through an animated forest of flames, before the iconic scene from “Poltergeist.” The visuals display shots of haunted houses and other various horror imagery.

Arguably her busiest year so far, 2018 marked the release of REZZ’s highly anticipated second album, Certain Kind of Magic.

As San Holo gears up to release his long-anticipated debut LP, album1, the future bass star dropped off a fresh mini mix to prime ears for the album’s landing. The video sees the producer rip through hits including “We Rise” and an epic remix of “Light” courtesy of bitbird label mate EASTGHOST. As expected, there are also tasty IDs to be discovered amongst the fan favorites as well.

With previously released album singles “Brighter Days” representing big in the set alongside the artist’s classics, the set is the latest clue that album1 has the potential makings of a future bass opus. On top of the September 21 album drop, San Holo is set to crush Red Rocks alongside Big Gigantic and DROELOE, dazzle crowds at Austin City Limits festival, and hit cities across North America on an extensive fall tour. With all that in mind, it’s safe to say San Holo season is just getting started.
