Blond:ish is Anstascia D’elene & Vivie Ann Bakos. Hailing from Montreal, where this duo got their start, they are now based in London where they continue to push the envelope with; their technical DJ sorcery, electrifying shows and now their ‘Inward Visions’ EP out on Kompakt.

Fresh from his EP on Kill The DJ, Tomas delivers his remix of title track Apikoros as a ill, dark, industrial tinted and seriously deranged slice of techno.
Next, Bozzwell takes on Ariam with his French discotheque mix. We don’t really need to introduce the man behind HiEM and so many great records on Kompakt, Crosstown Rebels and Eskimo and many more.
The third remix finds two serious contender for producers of the year. After two kick ass EP on I’m a Cliché, Red Axes (Tel-Aviv’s duo Dori Sadovnik and Niv Azri) dazzle us with some seriously strong production. With live recordings of electric bass, guitar and drums, their take on Akashic is an amazing clash of hypnotic disco bass, house beats, crazy drum fills and rock guitar.
One half of electronic duo Walls, who have released two critically acclaimed and adored albums on Kompakt, his solo debut delivers on the rich promise of his earlier releases and remixes for influential imprints such as Playhouse, RVNG Intl., Rekids and Buzzin’ Fly amongst others.
‘Winterval’ is a bold and immersive album that fuses the saturated analogue sounds of classic house and techno with the plagant / euphoric melodics associated with Brian Eno or Selected Ambient Works era Aphex Twin.
In a contemporary context Willis’s experimental and hypnotic sounds fit neatly but uniquely alongside the likes of other sonic 4:4 explorers such as Four Tet, Actress, Nathan Fake and Caribou.

A Sony distribution warehouse in North London was burned to the ground around 4:00 a.m. GMT this morning during the third straight night of riots in the UK. The 200,000 square-foot center housed the entire inventory of PIAS UK, the primary distribution hub for more than 150 independent labels.
No injuries were reported in the blaze, but all inventory is feared lost. XL/Beggars, Warp, Rough Trade, Domino, 4AD, Sub Pop, Secretly Canadian, Jagjaguwar, Drag City, Thrill Jockey, FatCat, Kompakt, Mute, Ninja Tune, Vice, and Soul Jazz are among those affected.(pitchfork report)
This track is one of the best tracks from Kilimanjaro album,old deep house vibe is back,get into it!
The Mexican artist – whose sound is a pungent hybrid of house, techno, electro and avant-pop, suffused with Latin flavour – has earned a sizeable cult following for his singles ‘Bo Jack’ and ‘Guerrero’, and remixes for Aguayo, Zombie Nation and Von Spar have helped to raise his profile. Most recently Rebolledo has been collaborating with Superpitcher as Pachanga Boys and with ‘Pitch and Jörg Burger under the name The Three Lions – you can check out the first fruits of these two projects, the tracks ‘Power’ and ‘You’ll Win Again’, on Kompakt’s forthcoming Total 11 compilation.
You’ll be hearing a lot more from Rebolledo in the months ahead: he’s currently writing and recording his debut solo album, all but guaranteed to one of the best albums of 2011
