Premiere: Clark – “Cannibal Homecoming”

This post was originally published on this site

The story of Chris Clark’s career in electronic music is one of budding, sprouting, and expansion: an unstoppable maturing journey from a Warp Records template-artist to an inimitable pillar on the leftfield landscape. On July 26, he will unveil the latest step forward in this 18-year-long odyssey: Kiri Variations, an album composed of material originally made for the BAFTA-nominated TV miniseries Kiri. Today, we are happy to premiere the single “Cannibal Homecoming.”

Likely the most conventionally song-like track in Clark’s oeuvre to date — if only for the fact that it features his own vocals — “Cannibal Homecoming” evokes the soft, whimsical electronica of artists such as Múm and Dntel, while still being grounded firmly in today’s cutting-edge laptop synthesis by the overpowering granular bass stomps that waltz in. It is as if contemporary production tricks infringed on the song’s piano loops and gossamery strings the way our harsh modern realities would disrupt a pleasant dream. In the climacteric middle section, Clark appears to comment on this dichotomy: “It’s never one way or another / It’s always one way and another.” I can’t help but interpret this as optimism: we can still celebrate innocence and joy amid turbulent times.

Pre-order Kiri Variations here, and listen to “Cannibal Homecoming” below:

Throttle proves he is a producer to watch with whimsically dance-worthy, ‘Wanderlust’

Throttle proves he is a producer to watch with whimsically dance-worthy, ‘Wanderlust’Throttle Wanderlust

At 21 years old, Australia native, Throttle has given himself to a rapidly ascending production career, having already collaborated with modern house blue chips Oliver Heldens and Galantis. Most recently, Throttle has put out his second Spinnin’ Records release of the year with track “Wanderlust,” which has already gained the support from the likes of Morgan Page and Tiësto. Euphoric breakdowns and pulsing beats hold steady alongside a looping vocal cut that avalanches into a grin-inducing dance effort.

“I made the initial idea for ‘Wanderlust’ in my hotel room in Ibiza,” said the producer in an official release. “I came up with the vocal hook exploring the streets of Old Town that morning and built the track from there.”

 

Clark premieres “Piano E.C.S.T.,” the first track ever (and most feverish track ever) for his new label, Throttle Records

This post was originally published on this site

Chris Clark makes music, but I often feel like he wants to be making movies. It’s not just that he’s taken to scoring and live-scoring various TV and movie projects as of late. The UK producer has this decade steadily shown an increasing interest in the dramatic, the theatrical, and the classical corners of electronic music.

With his first-ever release on his own newly-christened record label, Throttle Records, Clark is taking on the two largest stalwarts of classical music throughout the centuries: the piano and the harpsichord. E.C.S.T. T.R.A.X. is a double A-side 12-inch featuring two of Clark’s most ardent pieces to date.

Premiering today: “Piano E.C.S.T.” takes a single piano chord and blasts it into a thousand multi-dimensional pieces, creating a piece that Throttle refers to as “a bastardised incarnation of piano hardcore from distant aeons ahead.” Though the elements of Clark’s original claim to fame (ecclesiastic techno) are still subtly present, “Piano E.C.S.T.” would find its way to a soundtrack only in the veins of horror-melodrama.

From Clark:

“This might be a one-off and I don’t even know what this is, but I like the manic-ness of it. It’s unhinged like devotional music can be. I’ve been listening to a lot of Popul Vuh, and although that’s much more ambient and subtle, it’s been an influence. They capture peak ecstatic moments.”

This two-track release marks the beginning of a collaboration between Clark and sample library/virtual instrument company Spitfire Audio, whom Clark says gave him “the keys to a bounty-laden cellar of infinitely tweakable sample libraries.”

In its final moments, “Piano E.C.S.T.” releases a single touch of gentleness: a simple soft progression of cheery chords. It’s a dutiful endnote from Clark — a Hollywood happy ending — letting us know his knack for the suddenly-touching affectivity of electronic production is still very much intact. Listen to the track below and pre-order the whole release (i.e., “Piano E.C.S.T.” and its fraternal twin, “Harpsichord E.C.S.T.”) right here.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 42

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Since he started releasing music again at the beginning of last year, Party Ghost has been on a roll with originals. Each one’s been quite varied in style, tied together with his signature dark and somewhat glitchy vibe. “Kill,” released in early April, slams its listener with deep, reverberating bass — much like his most recent: “Phantom.” This stormy, brooding vibe is executed perfectly in “Phantom,” though it’s more subdued than its April predecessor. “In the year 2145 the world is ran by Spectre Industries,” Party Ghost notes in the song description. “The story begins with Phantom.”


Ryan Browne has been consistently wreaking havoc on the dance music world with fiery remixes and originals that put a hardcore twist on tracks like Krewella‘s “Alive” and Alison Wonderland‘s “Messiah.” In his latest, a cover of the classic “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada, Browne whips out the drum sticks for a powerful take on the 2007 classic, mixing in elements of hardstyle and dubstep for a rendition that’s not for the faint of heart.


Armada powerhouse Armin Van Buuren has followed up his mid-April “Therapy” with the release of a funk-injected remix from Throttle. The Melbourne artist has made a name for himself with groovy hits like his take on “Hit the Road Jack” and his remix of Earth, Wind & Fire’s iconic “September.” His “Therapy” remix looks to be another stellar addition to his discography, as he adds a classic disco vibe to James Newman’s vocals.


There are few things I love more than the mixing of genres. German drum & bass duo Neonlight have put a VIP spin on one of their own tracks, combining gorgeous orchestral elements, soaring electric guitar and a drum & bass rhythm for a formidable four-minute venture. Its action-packed, cinematic feel is bolstered by hefty bass and dramatic builds that leave the listener wanting more as the synths peter out at the end.


Fresh off a four-track NEST HQ EP, Canadian duo Chuurch have come back with a sultry remix of REZZ and 13‘s celebrated collaboration, “DRUGS!” Digging into the style they call “lean bass,” the pair have crafted a remix saturated with wobbles and weighty bass. REZZ and 13’s haunting melody drifts in and out of the remix, allowing the duo to carry it through while adding their own unique twist.

Throttle and Niko the Kid unite on Justin Timberlake and Snoop Dogg’s hit collaboration ‘Signs’

This post was originally published on this site

Spinnin’ Records recruit Throttle is by all accounts closing out a breakout year, but as 2017 draws to a close, the Aussie beatmaker has one more gift up his sleeve as the “icing on the cake.” Teaming up once again with Atlanta’s Niko the Kid, the pair have joined forces on a new remix, honing in on some early 2000’s pop as the groundwork for their latest tag team.

Their target this time around was Snoop Dogg and Justin Timberlake‘s 2004 radio smash “Signs,” which sees them take the original’s glitzy disco-pop/rap crossover appeal and add some UK-garage-inspired flare. In essence, they’ve flipped the once radio-ready hip-hop select into a now certified dance floor ace.

The now nearly-vintage original cut landed on Snoop’s seventh studio LP, R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta): The Masterpiece. Upping the tempo considerably on the remix, Throttle and Niko work the original’s rich vocal samples into their own absolutely infectious house beat, breathing new life into one of Snoop’s better departures from west coast rap. Best of all, they’re giving away their new remix completely free of charge. Enjoy.
