Julio Portillo released his first track on Multi Vitamins scoring a hit with ‘Ellis’ last year. It was followed by an acclaimed EP on Smallroom Records – remixed by Franklin Da Costa to brilliant critical acclaim.
His debut release for Filigran comprises two hybrid house tracks. ‘Jazz Up‘ follows a house jazzy groove lead along with moody synth lines, one-shot hits and a Kraftwerk reminiscence vocoder melody. But the evolution doesn’t stop there. The tracks opens up in the middle with a beautiful female vocalist a la Billie Holiday entering the action. Pure musical evisceration and genre of its own.
With ‘Quimika‘ Portillo takes things to a more minimal house road with that same female singer making it a standout track. Future house 2011.
It comes as a huge shock to all those who know Poly Styrene and X-ray Spex that Poly has been diagnosed with cancer, she is currently undergoing various treatments in her battle with this illness.
She is devastated that she cannot commit to any live dates at this stage, but her album remains a very positive force in her current journey.
Poly has been tweeting about her illness and will continue to keep in touch with fans: “It’s been a bit of a battle fighting this cancer but hey ho I’m still alive, Luv Poly x”. She also recently added via Twitter “Hoping & praying I can fight this cancer. Thank u all 4 ur positive vibes, I’m overwhelmed, ur keeping me in the land of living.
Luv Poly X”
“Poly, DayGlo heroine of playfully serious punk and icon to Beth Ditto among many others, makes an unexpected festive return” - NME
“’Generation Indigo’ is her most commercial record yet but remains spiritually, socially, and environmentally concerned” - Mojo
At the end of 2010, Poly Styrene, the unforgettable frontwoman and iconic face of the seminal band X-ray Spex announced her return to the music scene by releasing a free download of alternative festive anthem ‘Black Christmas’. Poly’s reggae tinged track took on the commercialism that has infected the holidays and served as a reminder of how much we need her voice. Along with her ahead-of-their-time sound and vocal styling, her lyrics have been amazingly prescient. A true musical; and fashion rebel, Poly Styrene has returned at her most thrilling.
“Black Christmas” was just the beginning of what Poly Styrene has in store. The forthcoming album ‘Generation Indigo’ is due on April 26 through Future Noise Music and was produced by Youth (The Verve, Killing Joke, The Fireman, Edwyn Collins).
X-ray Spex may have only been around for a couple of years but their star shone brightly. Poly Styrene’s return is highly anticipated; she remains a genuine icon and one of the premier influences on the Riot Grrrl and Britpop scenes. Currently, a new set of young American bands like the Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, The Gossip and countless others recognize her fiery, irrepressible presence. With her great self-styled image, brilliantly sharp lyrics and powerful presence, Poly’s indomitable spirit still inspires.
After reforming the band for a one off show at The Roundhouse, Camden in 2008, Poly was persuaded to start writing a solo album. Armed with a record’s worth of songs, Poly met Youth who added his own epic style to the tracks.
The resulting LP kicks off with the mighty, power-pop of ‘I Luv Ur Sneakers’, and maintains the quick pace with forthcoming single ‘Virtual Boyfriend’ – before then moving into dubstep territories on the title track ‘Generation Indigo’. The album takes in everything from neo-X-ray Spex punk rock on ‘Thrash City’ and ‘L.U.V’ to the Trojan-reggae infused grooves of ‘No Rockefeller’, ‘Code Pink Dub’ and ‘Colour Blind’ whilst one of the stand out songs, ‘White Gold’ attests to the power of Poly’s soaring vocals.
The forward looking ‘Generation Indigo’ showcases Poly’s humorous musings on pop culture, the internet and fashion whilst also tackling heavier subject matter (war and racism) with her politically aware and intelligent lyrics.
‘Generation Indigo’ is a fantastic return to form for Poly and a welcome comeback for her fans. With her never-failing ability to connect with her audience regardless of the year and their age, Poly Styrene’s remarkable voice sounds as vibrant and innocent as ever.
The Bloody Beetroots Best Of… Remixes
(Out Now, Dim Mak Records)
Download The Bloody Beetroots’ Remix
of The Whip’s “Muzzle #1” HERE for a Sample of The Album
After selling out venues across the world as The Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77, Sir Bob Cornelius has announced the release of his first collection of remixes, Best Of… Remixes (Out Now, Dim Mak). Since the Bloody Beetroots project began turning heads back in 2007, Sir Bob has amassed a series of impressive remixes, ranging from his cascading remix of The Chemical Brothers “Dissolve” to the reworking of The Refused’s “New Noise.” Spanning 18 tracks, plus five digital-only cuts, these remixes are available in one package, available now and including his work with Robyn, MSTRKRFT, Vitalic, The Whip (download The Beetroots’ remix of “Muzzle #1″ HERE) and Tiga. Full tracklist below.
Since the project’s debut four years ago, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo has pushed the boundaries of dance music, incorporating elements from disparate genres and styles that range from the drive of hardcore punk to sweeping arrangements drawn from Rifo’s time studying Chopin, Beethoven, and Debusey. From “Butter” to “Cornelius” to the Steve Aoki assisted “Warp 1.9,”The Bloody Beetroots’ early singles dominated clubs across the globe, paving the way for the group’s debut full-length Romborama. The album was a star-studded affair that featured guest appearances from everyone from Justin Pearson (The Locust, All Leather) and Vicarious Bliss to The Cool Kids and J*DaVeY. The record was followed by the Spares of Romborama Series, which included Xmas Vendetta and The Domino EP. Touring the globe with his partner in crime Tommy Tea, the project earned a reputation for his sweaty, two man DJ sets. Last year, The Bloody Beetroots further expanded his setup, reimagining the poject’s music as The Bloody Beetroots DeathCrew 77. A dramatic step forward for him , The Bloody Beetroots became a live band with Rifo on guitar, bass, and synths,Tommy Tea on controllers, and The Beetroots’ newest member Edward Grinch on drums.

as a child dmitry mazurov used to dream about music for robots. not music created by machines, but music that has been especially composed and recorded for mechanical listeners.
kinetic beings who absorb music through special microphones embeded in their bodies and minds – to experience some sense of beauty, to teach them human feelings..
with “burovitsa” dmitry mazurov created an album of mesmerizing soundscapes just like that – and even we are no robots, we were completely taken in by the magical atmosphere of this release.
imagine new soundtracks for all your favorite science fiction movies and you are almost there. references to ridley scotts “alien” or stanley kubricks “space odysee” can be heard at some points, but it all goes far beyond beeing some kind of a moviescore.
“burovitsa” stands for itself – strong againts the sands of time, icecold and glowing warm at the same time – a monolith in the blackness of space, surrounded by waves and washed of eternal beauty.
dmitry mazurov is a composer from novosibirk, russia. his debut album was released by moscow label “electroshock records” in 2010. “burovitsa” is his first work for phlox. file under deep ambience, opaqueness, gloom and turbidity

French Horn Rebellion (Robert and David Perlick-Molinari) kick off 2011 by announcing the US self-release of their debut album The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion on April 19th digitally and May 24th physically (Once Upon A Time Records), an Asian date with MGMT, a stop at Austin’s SXSW and a 27 date North American tour supporting French electro pop outfit Yelle starting 17th April.
Written, produced and mixed by Robert and David,‘The Infinite Music…’ is a debut album thatwarps the fabric of dance, electro, rock and funk and may just turn out to be a contender for this year’s most ambitious, multi-faceted and engaging debut album. Crucially, the album also follows an intergalactic narrative that tracks the physical and emotional journey of an unknown French Horn player. “There is a story running through the album, it’s about the Universe. We’re pretty clear on what the story is, but what you take away from it may be something entirely different,” says David.
The album’s artwork features the sculptures of Portland based artist Meredith Dittmar (www.corporatepig.com) who the band contacted after finding her work on the Internet. Dittmar has exhibited in New York and as far afield as, Mexico City and Istanbul.
On the back of just three EP’s to date, these two unassuming brothers, originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have already toured and played with the likes of Hot Chip, Sleigh Bells, The Drums, Cut Copy andSebastiAn and have been tipped by everyone from Q Magazine, The Guardian, Time Out and French music bible Les Inrockuptibles to hometown publications such as The New York Times and NY Daily News.
The Brooklyn-based duo already had an illustrious pedigree; David produced MGMT’s indie release, Time to Pretend EP for New York indie Cantora Records, and with previous single “Up All Night” they scored a Record of the Week on BBC Radio 1 and an opening slot on the influential Kitsuné Maison compilation series; a big deal for a virtual unknown. The band have also remixed the likes of MEN, Two Door Cinema Club, OMD and Alex Winston, the later resulting in JPlatt of New York producers du jour The Knocks madly tweeting “its like the hottest thing I’ve ever heard”!
Following packed out NYC performances at CMJ, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival and in support to MNDR at the launch of new Neon Gold / Popjustice party POPSHOP, FHR will visit Europe in March for a handful of shows before heading home to play SXSW and then on to Asia for shows in Hong Kong (w/ MGMT), China, Korea and Japan. Their 27 date North American tour supporting Yelle kicks off in Phoenix on 17th April.

The Band’s New Album Goes Full Charge Into An Energetic Mash-Up Of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae And Electronic Beats
Hour Magazine wrote that “Delhi 2 Dublin is the United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”. They are a Vancouver, Canada based band that plays an energetic mash-up of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica with global rhythms and club beats. Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, Andrew Kim and Ravi Binning along with new members Jaron Freeman-Fox and Sara Fitzpatrick are diverse in both their backgrounds and musical influences. The band has been together over four years and has released three albums including its latest, Planet Electric. The album title is apt because the six musicians feel that they plug directly into the world’s music and energy. The icing on the cake was mixing the album with noted UK producer Diamond “DJ Swami” Duggal (Apache Indian/Maxi Priest/Nusrat Fateh Ali).
A live collaboration put together in 2006 as a one-off performance piece for a club night in Vancouver called Delhi to Dublin was so well-received that requests for additional performances led to the official formation of Delhi 2 Dublin. “Not being able to fit into any specific genre allows the band to create whatever we like and not be judged for it. Our audience expects nothing less.” The band finds this advantageous for their live show as it enables them to create a flow to their sets much like a DJ would for the dance floor. “Audiences love to see a band transcending stereotypes and letting the music speak for itself”.
The Delhi 2 Dublin crew is constantly touring. The strong word-of-mouth on their live performances has enabled them to build a loyal and continent wide fan base. The band has played several of the top festivals in Canada and the U.S. and, in 2011, is expanding its horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. In addition, on March 1st, they will be releasing Planet Electric in the U.S. A new line-up, a new album and new international touring opportunities all signal that originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience. They have become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands and 2011will only see them enhancing that reputation.
