Cut Copy are internationally renowned for their raucous live show. Having left crowds from Berlin to El Paso in a state of sweaty ecstasy during the first leg of their globe-spanning Free Your Mind tour, the band will make their way back stateside for a string of national dates this spring, including two sold out shows at New York’s Terminal 5, Washington, DC, Nashville, Los Angeles & more!

Supporting the band on the North American tour will be up & coming Canadian artiste Jessy Lanza, whose debut album Pull My Hair Back was described by Cut Copy founder Dan Whitford as one of his favorite records of 2013: “it’s a fantastic example of left-field futuristic pop, fusing R&B with electronic production by Jeremy Greenspan. It’s beautiful, but also tough. So I’m really excited to see her perform it live when we tour together next month.” Turkish Prison (an offshoot of Midnight Juggernauts) will take the helm as the official tour DJ.
Full North American Tour w/ Jessy Lanza Kicks Off March 19!

Masterpiece mixed by Andrew Weatherall

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 12, 2012 by E.N.

Andrew Weatherall is to electronic music what James Brown is to soul. The master of reinvention, the humble godfather and a true leader of our time, this quintessential gentlemen cares so little about following he is light years ahead of the pack. Now he digs deep to share his influences from across the ages for the special Masterpiece series, spanning three discs of inspirational treasures.

Following the likes of Gilles Peterson and Francois K, Masterpiece brings you legends from the world of music. Who else could join the dots between styles so vast a resume as acid house, rockabilly, electronica, techno, post punk, deep house and countless unclassifiable rare cuts than the man who has been collecting records for over three decades with no regard for their origin or trends.

A campaign started by his army of fans to crown him the new John Peeland award him his own BBC Radio show had the media in a spin to support it. That’s because Weatherall is a maverick, never a people pleaser he has made many an unpopular choice during his thirty plus year career, but he stands by them and for that he has been crowned the ultimate music selector and king of the dancefloor.

His colourful past is an entangled mess of flirtations with the underground and the elite. Early involvement at London’s first acid house club Shoom, remixing rock stars such as Bjork, Friendly Fires, My Bloody Valentine, Happy Mondays, and not to forget the illustrious production of Primal Scream’s landmark early 90s album ‘Screamadelica’ has been offset with regular experimental triumphs as Two Lone Swordsman, Sabres of Paradise and others as Weatherall humbly shies away from the limelight and is beckoned into the sub-terrain to develop the dark sounds he has become known and respected for.

Predictably it’s impossible to classify the material Weatherall has picked for Masterpiece. From The Horrors to Kasper BjorkeTornado Wallace to Cut Copy, and Todd Terje to Toddla T, each disc showcases his unique ability to veer between styles and never quite be noticed. Heavily peppered with his own edits and remixes, it’s an honest representation of his imaginative and unpredictable take on a sound that spans generations.

Opening aptly with A Love From Outer Space’, an ode to the heart of this project, the name is also the title of his eclectic all night party alongside Sean Johnston that started in 2010 and became a cult night now found at festivals and clubs worldwide. The aim was to slow things down and never knowingly exceed 122bpm, working through spaced out treats, proto-house, industrial, rare dubs and and slo-mo beats.

The result is seductive and addictive, a must-have for train-spotters and a door opener for the newly converted. But most of all finally marks down the vision of one of the greatest musical innovators of our time.

Track of the Day :Cut Copy – Sun God (Andrew Weatherall Remix)(Download)

Zonoscope Receives Best Dance/Electronica

Album GRAMMY Nomination

Cut Copy’s stellar Zonoscope was just nominated for the Best Dance/Electronica Album GRAMMY. The album’s closing track, “Sun God”, showed us just how epic Cut Copy can get. Andy Weatherall’s remix brings out the track’s seductive groove and whispers.

 

Download it here 

The Sun God single, with two remixes by Andrew Weatherall, will be available in digital and vinyl formats on Jan 20th (AUS), Jan 23rd (UK/EU), and Jan 24th (US).

This is the band’s first GRAMMY nomination and bookends a phenomenal year that saw the band play to rapturous audiences across the globe including a thundering Coachella set and headlining slot at Austin City Limits. The GRAMMY Awards will be held on Sunday, February 12th at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and will be televised on CBS that same day at 8 pm EST / 7 PM CST.

 Zonoscope is Cut Copy’s 3rd and most ambitious work yet. It was released by Modular Records this past February and was met with critical raves ranging from Rolling Stone to Pitchfork.

Zonoscope is Cut Copy boiled down to their purest form, a suite of futuristic visions built upon primal rhythm tracks. It is at once their most immediate work to date but also their most sonically exquisite. “Take Me Over” perfectly encapsulates this, its chiming highlife guitars bouncing around tropical percussion reminiscent of an island holiday in a pop song.

Recorded over a 6 month period in a warehouse space the band rented in Melbourne, Australia and mixed in Atlanta by Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley, Deerhunter), Zonoscope paints a mesmerizing picture, conjured by a band at the height of their powers.

Juan Maclean Announces Release on DFA Records +free download “Everybody Get Close”

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2011 by E.N.

Juan Maclean
 
Everybody Get Close(DFA Records; November 8, 2011)

Since the release of  2009’s The Future Will Come, John “Juan” Maclean has stayed quite busy remixing artists like Chairlift, Matthew Dear, The Tough Alliance and forthcoming remixes for Yoko Ono and Stevie Nicks. He’s also appeared on both the Holy Ghost! Static on the Wire! EP (shredding guitar solo!) and took front man duties on Shit Robot’s “Grim Receiver”. Juan Maclean is now gearing up for the November 7th release of Everybody Get Close on DFA Records. The digital only album features previously released outtakes and re-mastered tracks as well as remixes from some of his most talented colleagues.
 
Interspersed among the eleven songs are five that originally appeared on Find A Way, an EP only previously available at Juan Maclean live shows. “Find A Way” opens the record with call-and-response vocals from Maclean and bandmate Nancy Whang atop an electronic pop base, followed by “Let’s Talk About Me,” which bounds blissfully throughout. “Deviant Device” is laden with dubby percussion and echo-drenched synths reminiscent of Basic Channel. “X2” offers up wide hall of house and robotized vocals. Short and sweet track “The Robot” is filled with mechanical sounds and extraterrestrial noises. “Feel So Good,” from the DJ-Kicks compilation also features vocals from Whang and is built on a rolling loop and an indefatigable beat provided by late drummer Jerry Fuchs. Japanese bonus track “When I Am With You” leisurely moves along on a relaxing romantic groove. Album closer and title track “Everybody Get Close” has mechanical vocals and funky synth bleats that show faint traces of major influences like Zapp and S.O.S. band, respectively.

Download the “Everybody Get Close” MP3  HERE.
 
The three remixes included here differ wholly in character. The Holmes Price remix of “Human Disaster” radically alters the mood from that of the original, delivering a sound that immediately brings Human League to mind – a constant reference on Juan’s album too.  Jee Day’s reworking of the same song reinvents the original creaky piano ballad with disco and house undertones. Meanwhile, Cut Copy’s take on “Happy House” tones down the glee of the original with the inclusion of muscular, brawny vocals.
 
Juan Maclean and Nancy Whang have begun work on The Juan Maclean’s 3rd LP for DFA Records. In the meantime the digital compilation Everybody Get Close, serves as a handy compilation and welcome reminder of the music Juan Maclean has contributed to both the dance and indie community. It also can only hint at what might come next from the chameleon-like Juan Maclean.

01 Find a Way
02 Let’s Talk About Me
03 Human Disaster (Holmes Price Version)
04 Deviant Device
05 When I Am With You
06 Feel So Good
07 Happy House (Cut Copy Remix)
08 X2
09 The Robot
