Autograf’s Jake Carpenter shares heartfelt message on touring haitusAutograf

The Autograf trio, comprised of Jake Carpenter, Mikul Wing, and Louis Kha, have maintained a non-stop itinerary in the last three years since their emergence. Amid constant touring and studio time, the trio’s latest Caution:Live tour has found Carpenter largely absent, and he’s now cluing fans into the nature of his sidelining.

Recently Carpenter took to social media to share a heartfelt message to fans, describing suffering a severe mental breakdown that challenged his ability to tour with his band. Carpenter feared he “would tour again” though after an extended period of rehabilitation with friends and family away from the road, he’s preparing to rejoin Autograf once again. The Chicago-based producers hadn’t publicly spoken about Carpenter’s absence prior to the recent Instagram post.

Artist mental health has been a rising issue in recent years with the unrealistically strenuous nature of the dance music industry. With electronic music’s young talents emerging into the lightning-fast world of touring and promotion, hopefully we see artists take measures of self care away from the road like this more frequently going forward. Read Jake Carpenter’s full statement below.

Hey everyone ❤ We haven’t publicly said anything until now- but I was off tour for 5 months. At the end of 2017, after 3 incredible years of practically non-stop touring, I had a severe mental breakdown which forced me to miss our big headline tour. I didn’t think I would tour again- I felt a shadow of my former self. But being home and surrounded by my friends and family for 5 months, and taking care of myself and seeking out help has done me a world of good. I feel so incredibly blessed to have Mikul and Louis as bandmates and have so many talented people working on our team. Everyone has been very understanding of my need to take a step back from it all for a minute and I couldn’t be more grateful. Taking the time to go back to my roots making art and sculpture again has been very therapeutic. I feel balanced, stable, and healthy- and in the process got to spend lots of time in the studio writing music, sculpting, drawing, and creating. I can’t wait to share all the new projects we’ve been working on and I’m so excited to come back on tour and get involved with all of you guys again! Love, Jake 📸 @willselviz

Autograf tackles Family of the Year’s ‘Hold Me Down’ with ease

Autograf tackles Family of the Year’s ‘Hold Me Down’ with easeScreen Shot 2018 06 30 At 11.56.11 AM

The Autograf guys composed of Louis, Mikul and Jake, have been crushing 2018 with ease. From completing their headlining Caution:Live tour, to many luscious originals, the guys show their ability to tackle anything and everything that comes their way. 

When Family of the Year reached out to get their Autograf on “Hold Me Down,” the trio couldn’t resist. The once indie rock tune was then re-imagined with thumping bass, super clean breakbeat percussion, and vibrant pulsing synths that take the mind to a dark room with smoke, strobing lights, disco balls and pure enjoyment of the music and moment in time.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


Kyle Watson adds a low-toned, mystery-filled house beat to ZHU and Tame Impala‘s seminal “My Life.”

Swedish producers Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman know festival season is in full force as they deliver anthemic-feeling “Phantom.”

The Aston Shuffle give ‘everything they’ve got’ on piano driven house heater, “Everything I Got.”

Inverted alien embellishments make for an eerie take on house, as Malaa returns with new single, “Bling Bling.”

Airy synth work leads to a saxophone climax on Spencer Brown‘s “waves.wav,” taken from Brown’s Illusion of Perfection EP pt. III.

Mandy Jiroux effects rhythmic bliss on vocal-centric new single, “Running Out Of You.”

Autograf add an electronic vibe to Family of the Year’s “Hold Me Down” with their laidback rendition of the original.

Bondax tap vocalist Andreya Triana for this soulful, groove-filled original.

Fabian Mazur leans into future bass-style production in this smooth offering, featuring Nevve on the vocals.

The remixers got the message, and now, on this New Music Friday, they’ve met Zedd, Grey, and Maren Morris in “The Middle.” The remix pack for “The Middle” sees revamps from Maliboux, Curbi, and more.

Spinnin’ Records heavyweights Merk & Kremont add a layer of infectious funk and a heightened bpm count to Addal’s original, “Lies,” making for a spirited rework.

Pucker up, Benny Benassi and Sofi Tukker fans: the two dance music dynamos link up on new single “Everybody Needs A Kiss.”

This Birdfeed Exclusive will have all streamers wondering “Who’s That?” The same-titled EP arrives courtesy of Floridian producer and long time Dirtybird fan, C.H.A.Y.

It’s a good week to be a progressive house fan as Grum and Fehrplay co-release “Spirit” on Anjunabeats, an atmospheric tune that melts from one second into the next.

Diplo, Lil Yachty, and Santigold‘s viscous collaboration “Worry No More” gets the Keys N Krates treatment as the Canadian electronic trio release a chilled-out take on Diplo’s original. Keys N Krates hit sonic sweet spots with a beat swap and the occasional yet effective percussive addition.

Stripped down sonic seduction materializes in mellifluous form on smle‘s debut EP, Love Notes, released on Lowly Palace.

House music fans will find J. Worra‘s Mark The Beast collaboration, “Hourglass” to be a tasty, groovy treat.

As part of Afterlife Recordings’ latest vinyl and digital offering, Italian trio Agents Of Time have crafted “Paradigm,” an ethereal techno original.

Re-envisioning a Markus Schulz production is a formidable feat, but Giuseppe Ottaviani rises to the challenge in his “Safe from Harm” remix, a take that plays the original’s soaring vocal off of the track’s quintessential trance beat.

Vulpey gets electronically experimental on “Recovery Quest,” a track defined by its disjointed construction and resulting edge.

Funky Craig puts forth a trippy take on psytrance in aptly titled new release, “WestPSYde.”

 

Ramon Tapia puts a dark, driving spin on Midmood’s “Sely Ho,” transforming the original into a certified techno thumper with rumbling percussive accents.

Autograf-Dead-Soon-feat.-Lils-Bonsai-Mammal

Chicago trio Autograf is back the form of the new single “Dead Soon” with Lils and Bonsai Mammal.

” ‘Dead Soon’ is about the urgency of life. It’s about going after your dreams today, chasing after love now, and just saying fuck it to all the insignificant things in life because we might be ‘Dead Soon.’ Everyday, we ask ourselves if this is our last day living, are we truly doing what we want to be doing in life? It’s this mentality that led us to quit our day jobs and pursue music full time. For us, death is a powerful concept that allows us to value the preciousness of life, and drives us to not waste any moment of it.” – Autograf to Billboard

The soft melody blends commercial house and progressive synths, with the end result a catchy tune sure to appeal to a wide audience.

“Dead Soon” is out now on Casablanca Records.
