Boston Bun drops tasty new house tune, 'Spread Love (Paddington)'

Ed Banger Records veteran Boston Bun has a knack for creating high-energy house music with a bounce. Back with his newest release, the French producer has just put out “Spread Love (Paddington)” featuring fellow Ed Banger vocalist, DVNO, just in time for heavy summer airplay.

Inspired by the exceptionally lovable children’s character, Paddington Bear, Boston Bun creates an infectious, fitting tribute consisting of crisp piano keys, light-hearted synths, and a groovy bass line that bound for repeated plays in poolside playlists and club setlists alike. Paired with DVNO’s cool but casual refrain, “I’ma spread love like a Paddington Bear,” this track perfectly straddles the line between deep dance floor belter and whimsical, fun-loving party cut. Weaving together DVNO’s singalong-ready versework with a percussive rump-shaking house arrangement, Boston Bun drops off one of the tastiest dance jams we’ve heard so far this summer.

Steve Hauschildt prepares to improve your acupuncturist’s music taste with a new album on Ghostly International

This post was originally published on this site

Let’s all be honest: all these YouTube relaxation playlists just aren’t doing the trick for us anymore. If only there were a way to convince our Chinese herbalist to listen to something new for a change…Well, here’s our chance! Steve Hauschildt has just announced a new full-length record, Dissolvi, which comes out July 8 on Ghostly International.

“Much of [Dissolvi] was recorded in a windowless studio, which removed elemental or seasonal references to time in the music,” writes Hauschildt. “The focus this time was on mixing the album and incorporating a broader set of instrumentation.” The title takes its name from cupio dissolvi, a Latin phrase meaning “I wish to dissolve.” That’s how I normally feel when they stick all those tiny needles in my hands, too. Hopefully the music is as physiologically relaxing as the title promises…

Oh, ok. I just listened to the first single below and I can confirm it is not a disappointing journey inwards. “Saccade” features fellow “I make music in a dark room with all the windows drawn” artist, Julianna Barwick. It was inspired by “involuntary eye movements” and features a gorgeous blend of Barwick’s signature echo and Hauschildt’s kosmiche-style productions.

Dissolvi is Hauschildt’s first full length for Ghostly, following the release of his 2016 album Strands and his appearance on this year’s phenomenal new record from Christina Vantzou. Pre-order it now, and be sure to give a copy as a gift to your acupuncturist. In no time, you’ll be jamming out (or totally asleep) whenever you’re getting glass orbs suction-stuck to your back! Thanks Steve!

♫ Listen: Lucaufer – EP1

This post was originally published on this site

Lucaufer’s debut titled EP1 feels like a bright dream. The release begins with twinkling and tender ambient music in the form of “Pupa”, featuring guest vocalist Yma. It’s an intriguing opener which quickly transforms into the slightly more rhythmical and dissonant “White Spirit”, the EP’s musical centrepiece. Its slowly developing textures and ever-present prodding beat make the experience of listening slightly hypnotic. My thoughts are below:

It’s not a loop… But it is a loop. Wait, it’s definitely not a loop… Hmmm, it is a loop after all. But it can’t be. It’s not a loop. But then again, it could be a loop. But that’s highly unlikely: it’s not a loop. Could it be a loop? I honestly don’t think I think so.

So yeah, just to be clear, I have no idea.

The closing track is titled “Ciel”, or “sky” in French. Its appropriately airy drones ebb and flow gently, like a cool breeze on a warm summer day: while refreshing when it’s there, you’re left wishing for more once it’s gone. And unfortunately for you, “Ciel” is gone before you know it, as is the whole EP. Hopefully Lucaufer will bless us with some more of her music soon enough though.

Anyways, let’s live in the present: The beautiful EP1 is out now on London-based label Tobago Tracks. Listen to it, buy it, and share it with all your friends.

The Ophelias to release Yoni Wolf (WHY?)-produced sophomore albumAlmost this July on Joyful Noise

This post was originally published on this site

They say that youth is wasted on the young, but don’t try telling that to the Ophelias. Not only do they craft atypical art-pop that is mature beyond their age, but they are making the most of their formative bloom years by grabbing life by the horns and whipping-up tunes that would jawdrop their elders. On July 13, the Ophelias — Micaela Adams (percussion), Andrea Gutmann Fuentes (violin), Spencer Peppet (guitar/lyrics), and Grace Weir (bass) — will release their second album Almost on Joyful Noise Recordings.

Produced by WHY’s Yoni Wolf, Almost is chockablock full of the kinds of luscious auditory experiences that will have you grinning from lobe to lobe regardless of your age. Formed while still in high school, the four wanted to escape the constricting tokenism of being “the girl” in their previous groups. “In the past we had all kind of been the ‘girl in the band,’ in some capacity,” says Peppet. “Having a band of all women eradicates that possibility logistically, but also makes for a really creative environment without the patronization that often comes along with being the ‘girl in the band.’”

2018 looks to be a banner year for the Ophelias, so chug from the fountain of youthful enthusiasm and check out the zestful interplay of the band’s two latest singles off Almost: the Joe Shaffer-directed animated lyric-scroll for “Fog” and the album cover still life of “General Electric” below. All the recognized formats (including a 300 hand-numbered limited strawberry creammmsicle swirl vinyl) can be pre-ordered here or via the band’s Bandcamp. On the live front, the Ophelias will open a fistful of dates for the Low Anthem in July (find those below the choons).

Almost a tracklisting:

01. Fog
02. General Electric
03. Lover’s Creep
04. Night Signs
05. O Command
06. Lunar Rover
07. Bird
08. House
09. Zero
10. Moon Like Sour Candy

The Ophelias live:

07.16.18 – Los Angeles, CA – Moroccan Lounge #
07.19.18 – Seattle, WA – Fremont Abbey Arts Center #

ODESZA release 'Across The Room' remix EP, ft. Tycho, Durante, & more

Coming off another preeminent performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater this weekend, ODESZA just won’t stop showering their familial fan base with love. The Seattle-based electronic duo have now released a 6-track remix EP of their soulful single, “Across The Room” ft. Leon Bridges.

Each contributor has done well at making the original completely their own, while maintaining its emotive integrity.

Fancy kaleidoscopic melting-pot performances by rebels with a penchant for “divinities” and new compositions by one of France’s most important electronic evangelists??? Renowned sonic adventurer Lawrence English has you covered. English’s Room 40 label has been “day one” since, well, day one; and to prove it further, he is about to present a two-day festival of formidable free artists in Sydney, Australia at the end of this month.

Prepare for EPROM and Alix Perez’s debut LP as SHADES on Deadbeats with second track release, ‘Guillotine’

Prepare for EPROM and Alix Perez's debut LP as SHADES on Deadbeats with second track release, 'Guillotine'

In what has been referred to as a “bass assassin dream team” in SHADES, the duetted moniker of EPROM and Alix Perez have long been preparing for their debut studio LP, In Praise of Darkness. The 12-track album, which now sees it’s release July 13 via Deadbeats Records, is chocked full of gravity-distorting experimental bass and head-turning percussive cuts.

In preparation for the LP release, SHADES have been steadily teasing tracks that play with the limbic system in “The Saga” and now in “Guillotine.” Equally as dark in moniker as its precursor, “Guillotine” further sets the tone for the album epitomizing the experimental nature of the project.

In Praise of Darkness is the manifestation of what happens when two deep-minded folks on opposing coasts meld their creativity together.  Intriguing and unrivaled in quality, the album is indicative of what bass music has been missing — including varying sounds and tempos, imperious bass lines, and, not to mention, a vocal feature from one of UK urban music’s most sought after voices, Killa P.

To mark album’s release, SHADES will also be embarking on a world-wide headlining tour beginning in North America this July.

and earthworm
what the trombonist used to do. Tomlinson, Rudd and Grey
and while the trombone is widely perceived as an instrument of amusement, these days, and not as a serious concert instrument
so it seems
the trombone is riding the freight elevator
high to low
smearing the way along looksie and Thames
plugging the drain
once maestro said “I need the trombone”
and patrons readily agreed
nowadays the plea is likely to fall on deaf ears
to the laugh factory
whether it works that way or not

and also the helicopter
what role does the helicopter play anymore, Willis,
now that our drones are strapped with thick cameras

and there used to be people in Essex last Saturday out on a shopping spree
buying shampoo and furniture, and popcorn for a snack
the owner with the bowtie, Bengie, I think
lorded over the curious patrons and vendors
thirsty for a sale
hoping that delegating the entire table to used shampoo was economical and made the sale, go home happy
what a great Saturday

  and what role did 3D mapping used to play? Unfortunately, I witnessed dozens of them chew through the chicken wire. Pets on sale went loose into paperboard holes, making nests from incised wire. Back then, Bengie was hoping Big Chief wouldn’t come around this particular Saturday with the clipboard and short pencil taking points off for reasonable offenses. He didn’t come around, and that’s what made it a great one.

Crankdat spins some fresh IDs in new Diplo and Friends mix

Crankdat spins some fresh IDs in new Diplo and Friends mix

Christian Smith, a.k.a. Crankdat became a breakout star through remixes for Zeds Dead, Jaden Smith, San Holo, and more. In addition, he’s added some equally successful originals to the portfolio, with his most recent being “Need Somebody.” Now, it seems this positive traction has caught Diplo‘s attention, as the rising producer has officially made his debut on BBC Radio 1’s Diplo & Friends.

Fans are in for a big treat here, as the bass-heavy mix features a wide array of fresh IDs from the Cleveland born DJ. He also blends famed remixes with throwbacks, hip-hop — including tracks by Kanye West and Lil Pump — and dance music anthems such as Galantis‘ “Runaway” and Calvin Harris‘ “Summer” (mashed up with some trap-y goodness). The hour long mix is ever-changing and will make listeners wonder where the time went.

Crankdat is currently on his “Outcast” tour, hitting stops all over the globe leading up to an Electric Zoo 2018 performance come Labor Day Weekend.

DJ Seinfeld to curate the next installment of !K7’s prestigious DJ-Kicks series

This post was originally published on this site

DJ Seinfeld from Seinfeld (not to be confused with DJ Ross from Friends and DJ Niles from Frasier) is set to take the helm on Berlin label !K7’s 64th installment of their beloved DJ-Kicks mix series. Dedicated to the Swedish DJ’s regrettably ailing father, and combining his own new material (also under the Rimbaudian alias) with a choice selection of bangers by others, the album is set to arrive on July 13.

!K7 kicked off the series in 1995 with a release from C.J. Bolland; since then, the label has invited some of electronic music’s mainstays and up-and-comers alike to compile cohesive-yet-eclectic mixes of what they love most about dance music. In case of DJ Seinfeld — real name Armand Jakobson — the intent was also for the mix to be “reflecting the simultaneous fear of leaving something safe behind as well as the excitement of venturing into unknown territories, musically and emotionally.”

The tracklisting of the mix has been released, and it includes cuts from both established artists (such as Falty DL and Project Pablo), as well as several lesser-known producers. You can listen to one of Jakobson’s new tracks, called “Typeless,” down below. And don’t forget to pre-order the mix here, just for the kicks.

01. DJ Seinfeld – I See U
02. Andras – Poets Day
03. Fantastic Man – False Consciousness
