Skream Outside the Box July 26th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2010 by E.N.

Ollie Jones, better known as Skream, will release his next full-length this summer on Tempa.

Outside the Box will be Jones’ second album to date, following his self-titled 2006 debut. He’s kept himself extremely busy in the years since that release, putting out dozens of 12-inches on Tempa, Tectonic and Non Plus among others, and playing gigs around the world as one of dubstep’s biggest names. A notoriously prolific producer, he’s already released a total of 81 tunes since 2003, and reportedly has around 20,000 more sitting on a hard drive in his studio, which is still located in his old bedroom at his parents’ house in Croyden, England.

The record will feature a host of guest appearances, including vocals by rapper Murs and synthpop outfit La Roux, whose track “In For The Kill” made great remix fodder for Skream last year. Drum & bass artists D-Bridge and Instra:mental contribute as well, by co-producing the track “Reflections.”

Word has it the album will be followed by a sixth edition in the widely-loved Skreamizm series, though details on that release are still forthcoming.

Tracklist
01. Perferated
02. 8 Bit Baby feat. Murs
03. CPU
04. Where You Should Be feat. Sam Frank

John Digweed – Structures (2xCD+DVD) (Bedrock)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2010 by E.N.


John Digweed – ‘Structures’ (Bedrock Records)
CD1 & CD2 – compiled and mixed by John Digweed
+ Bonus DVD – ‘Eye Of The Storm’ Documentary by Pablo Casacuberta
+ ‘John Digweed Live at the Vagabond’ + Slideshow & Extras
released 12th July 2010

2010 is proving to be a fantastic year for music and a great year for the ever-impressive Bedrock Records. For his latest album venture, ‘Structures’, John Digweed has selected an exceptional 33 tracks, bringing together the latest Bedrock single releases and a plethora of unreleased, exclusive tracks and remixed tracks from ‘Bedrock Eleven’, all mixed together to perfection the man himself.

The totally tuned-in, turned-on, forward thinking mix across 2xCDs, not only features the amazing music of big guns like Cristian Varela, Guy J, Christian Smith, Quivver, King Unique, Nick Warren, Mutant Clan, John Digweed & Nick Muir, but also showcases the label’s desire to push forward the rising stars of the future. A glance through the tracklist reveals the impressive talents of Rowdent, Dimitri Nakov, Marc Marzenit, Ian O`Donovan, Sian, Luis Junior and many more. The additional bonus of featuring some of the best remix work from Nic Fanciulli, Pete Heller, Psycatron and more, only confirms that John Digweed has his finger firmly on the pulse of the electronic dance scene in 2010. It’s an international showcase from this influential label that is hard to beat.

‘Structures’ is further enhanced by the inclusion of a bonus DVD featuring ‘Eye Of The Storm’, a visual masterpiece documentary, filmed on John’s last tour of South America by Pablo Casacuberta (www.pablocasacuberta.com ). His exceptional creativity assumes that the viewing audience has a certain awareness of John Digweed’s “public persona” and hence seeks to take a glimpse his inner life, thinking processes and his imagination using visual metaphors that can illustrate them in a graphic way. It’s an approach that reinvigorates the somewhat formulaic music documentary genre, and takes it to another enthralling level. NB – You can get a further insight into the making of this documentary as Pablo Casacuberta discusses his artistic approach, below.

It seems amazing that through such an illustrious career so far, John Digweed has never had a live DJ mix made commercially available! But, ‘John Digweed Live at the Vagabond’, recorded live at the 9th Annual Bedrock/Creations Party at Vagabond Miami 27th March 2010, included here on the ‘Structures’ bonus DVD is yet another musical milestone. It’s a live mix complete with slideshow that captures the essence of this amazing Bedrock party for posterity. www.thevagabondmiami.com
’Structures’ is released 12th July 2010 on Bedrock Records. www.bedrock.org.uk

Pablo Casacuberta talks about his ‘Eye Of The Storm’ documentary on the ‘Structures’ bonus DVD.

I started to work with musicians about twenty years ago. I was raised in a family where everyone else was a musician except me, so somehow I got used to create images following the same approach that I would use to compose music. I try to concentrate in the emotions, in the atmosphere, and to convey a sense of inner journey.

Generally, when I’m asked to direct a documentary or an interview in which the subject is a well-known musician or performer, I think that the audience already knows how the artist looks on stage, or has a certain awareness of their “public persona”. Probably because of that, it always felt more interesting to me to show a glimpse of their inner life, their thinking processes and their imagination. These are aspects of their artistic work that are not necessarily evident when they are on stage, and that can only be accessed by capturing them out of the contexts in which we are used to see them.

For that reason, when I have the chance to follow an artist for a while, I try to visualize which are those aspects of his or her personality are harder to grasp in a first glimpse, and I try then to find visual metaphors that could illustrate them in a graphic way. I want the images to tell us something we didn’t know before, so I try to convey the idea that those images we present in the documentary are like snapshots of the artist’s mental life. To do so, I have to work out those images by having conversations about how they feel, what was their history and their background. And then I try to dismantle all preconceived ideas related to their work. I somehow try to present them to the audience as if we hadn’t seen them ever before.

Working with John Digweed was a very rare opportunity, because he is an artist that doesn’t fit the general preconceptions that apply to some DJs. He doesn’t play any gimmick on stage. He is not distant, but he doesn’t pretend that he is in a state of exhilaration either. His performance is entirely about the music. It looks like choosing the right track for the right moment and for a particular crowd is for him an utter act of kindness. He is generous but patient. Popular but somehow mysterious. Both light and dark. He is central to what is happening but at the same time he is mostly away from the limelight. He likes to think of himself as somebody that can keep calm and quiet right in the eye of the storm, but also is capable to react quickly and unpredictably. For all those reasons, there was a huge space to explore his character in visual terms. I wanted to relate his interviews to images that were both very graphic and very abstract, so we could make it feel like they represent exactly what goes on in his mind. Trying to portray that sense of departure, we choose as a backdrop for the whole documentary one of his numerous tours to South America. It seemed to me that showing him walking around Rìo de Janeiro or jamming with local drummers in the streets of Montevideo would show the kind of experiences that show very vividly how far his journey has taken him. But also I wanted to depict his celebrated patience, his sense of timing and his observational abilities. And the only way to do so was through sequences that were mostly poetic. So, instead of just following him around, we also placed him in strange, almost imaginary settings, in which his adaptive and curious nature could flourish.

I’m very pleased with the results. My favourite outcome, when I shoot a series of interviews like the ones included in “Eye Of The Storm”, is when not only the audience sees the artist under a new light, but when the artist himself discovers angles and images that he finds unexpectedly accurate as a depiction of his state of mind. John was extremely collaborative, enthusiastic and humble, and went though the whole experience with a joyful sense of discovery. I hope that the final cut, however experimental, may allow his fans to feel that they have had a personal chat with him, and that by doing so they know him better.

ASC “Nothing Is Certain” LP (Nonplus Records)12th July 2010

Posted in News with tags , , on May 27, 2010 by E.N.

Forthcoming on Instra:mental’s Nonplus Records label is a debut LP from US based producer ASC, entitled “Nothing Is Certain”. It is due for release on 12th July 2010 on CD, 3×12″ Vinyl and Digital Download.

Since his first appearance on Nonplus, ASC has been hard at work on his LP and its finally here.
Starting with a 12” sampler he dives right in at the deep end with ‘Phobos’ in which electronic grooves and micro samples entwine against a backdrop of dramatic tones and industrial hits. Followed on the same side by the atmospheric hiatus ‘Oort Cloud’ you have a good inclination of the impending album by now, but are also treated to the AA-side ‘Matter Of Time’. Like a continuation of his debut Nonplus 12” track ‘Porcelain’, his crafty use of oriental sounding percussion, windlike sounds and melodies combined with an efficacious bass line make this track very hard to listen to in its entirety before you reach for the reset.

The album touches on many genres from start to finish such as the 4×4 offering of ‘Textura’, or the almost indescribable step of ‘Yatta’, but one common theme that this album holds throughout is the amalgamation of influences derived from all genres of music and ASC’s ability to combine these to create something new and unique. Collaborations with fellow Nonplus artist Vaccine and Exit Records artist Consequence add fuel to the fire, keeping it burning hot from start to finish.

NE-YO’s NEW SINGLE “BEAUTIFUL MONSTER” RECEIVES HUGE WORLDWIDE MYSPACE LAUNCH ON MAY 25th, 12:00 a.m. PST!

CO-WRITTEN AND CO-PRODUCED BY STARGATE – FIRST NEW TRACK FROM NE-YO’s UPCOMING FOURTH ALBUM, SET FOR
SEPTEMBER 21st RELEASE

Follows-up 2008 RIAA platinum #1 U.S./#1 UK Year Of The Gentleman – with trio of RIAA platinum smash hits “Closer,” “Miss Independent,” and “Mad”

Multi-platinum, three-time Grammy Award-winning Def Jam recording artist Ne-Yo goes into interstellar overdrive today, Tuesday, May 25th, at 12 a.m. (PST) – for the MySpace world-premiere of “Beautiful Monster,” his brand new single and the first track from his upcoming fourth album, set for September 21st release (details to be announced in the weeks and months ahead).

MySpace Music together with iLike.com and MySpace Music UK will pull out all the stops for the “Beautiful Monster” launch, including billboards and banners across the site which will result in millions of fan impressions worldwide. Catch all the action today at http://www.myspace.com/neyo.
On June 7th, “Beautiful Monster” will impact at Top 40, Rhythm, and Urban radio formats.

“Beautiful Monster” was co-written (with Ne-Yo) and co-produced by Stargate, whose career has been virtually synonymous with Ne-Yo since his start in 2006. Ne-Yo’s track record of smashes with Stargate includes “So Sick” (2006, #1 pop, #1 UK), “Because of You” (2007, #2 pop), “Closer” (2008, #1 Dance, #1 UK), “Miss Independent” (2008, #1 R&B), and “Mad.”

“Beautiful Monster,” Ne-Yo’s first major single release in more than a year-and-a-half, is also the first early warning shot from his upcoming new album(Libra Scale). Untitled as of this writing, it will be his first long-player since the RIAA platinum Year Of The Gentleman debuted at #1 on the Soundscan and UK national charts in September 2008. That album spun off the triumvirate of consecutive RIAA platinum hits above: “Closer,” “Miss Independent,” and “Mad.”

Year Of The Gentleman went on to generate a league-leading total of five Grammy Award nominations in 2009 – with “Miss Independent” winning for Best R&B Song (songwriters award) and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. Year Of The Gentleman followed up Because Of You (released May 2007), which won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary R&B Album, and In My Own Words (February 2006) – both of which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.

Ne-Yo, two-time BET Award-winning Best Male R&B Artist, founded The Compound Foundation which is committed to service at-risk and disadvantaged youth. In addition to building two new group homes in the Atlanta area, The Compound Foundation sponsors performances, motivational speakers and mentorship opportunities with leaders and business people within the community.

THEY SAY

“Mokgata is Ndebele royalty descended from the Maraba royal family of Polokwane, and the singer, dancer, songwriter and fashion-face of Sweat.X. He lives in Johannesburg.”

“Spoek Mathambo is a slippery post-Apartheid glam-rap prince from Soweto who is descended from distant African royalty, or Jewish, or both. In addition to our online communications trail, I have two weeks worth of phone bills—a Paris mobile, a London office number, some digits that connect to a voice speaking Arabic—to prove how hard it is to catch up to him.”

“And so to Spoek Mathambo. As one half of Sweat X, Soweto’s Spoek (aka Nthato Mokgata) has been a constant blog presence over the last 12-18 months, turning blog heads onto electro and hip hop South African sounds. Whether it’s his work with Playdoe (with Sibot), Bulgarian or DJ Edjotronic (with a new 12″ on Boyz Noize dropping soon), Spoek’s name repeatedly resurfaces – of late, in the form of his own ongoing mix series.”
