“…highly entertaining.” – New York Times

“You Can Dance” Single Available
March 1st via Arts & Crafts
2010 will be remembered as the year that Chilly Gonzales made a name for himself with his latest album (and accompanying film!) Ivory Tower, which received tremendous critical acclaim and best-of 2010 accolades worldwide. Now we’re thrilled to announce the release of a new single from Ivory Tower, in the form of “You Can Dance,” a euphoric hand-clap piano jamboree. The upbeat disco-soul number sees release on March 1st via Canadian tastemaker label Arts & Crafts!

The single, which will be available digitally in North America, comes with several remixes, including one from the nineteen-year old blog sensation Robotaki- other remixes come courtesy of Max Tundra, Shadow Dancer, Gemini Club, Edwin Van Cleef and Popular Computer.

Gonzales is also known as a super-producer of sorts, working with a wide array of artists. Best known for his production work with Feist (whose album The Reminderearned him a Grammy nomination), Peaches and Jamie Lidell, he has more recently worked with Marina & the Diamonds and Tiga, not to mention older collaborations with Bjork and Daft Punk. His single “Never Stop” was recently chosen by Apple to soundtrack the latest iPad commercial, broadcasting Chilly’s magic to millions of homes across the globe.

As for his own material, Gonzo has criss-crossed the musical world. His early releases tended toward lo-fi rap (The Entertainist) and dark, gritty cabaret (Gonzales Über Alles), or a combination of the two (Presidential Suite). In 2004 he took a step in a different direction with Solo Piano, an album consisting entirely of beautifully arranged original compositions of classical and jazz piano numbers that became his most well-known and best selling album to date.

In addition to all this great news, Chilly’s brilliantly hilarious film Ivory Tower, featuring Tiga and Peaches as well as frequent Gonzales collaborator Feist, is due for release on DVD later this year.

“You Can Dance” Single Includes Remixes from:

Robotaki
Max Tundra
Shadow Dancer
Edwin Van Cleef

Corrugated Tunnel / Donnacha Costello / Chymera / Mark O’Sullivan – “Transist” (Process Recordings)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2011 by E.N.

 
“Transist”
Corrugated Tunnel
Process Recordings – PRCS143
12″ and Digital: 28 Mar 2011

Transist” is the closing track from Corrugated Tunnel‘s critically-acclaimed third album “Minor Obsessions“, released on Process Recordings late last year. It will now be released as the third single from the album, with remixes by three prominent Irish DJ/Producers.

First up is Minimise label founder and owner Donnacha Costello, delivering a completely reworked track that transcends genres from Techno to Deep House. Chymera, who has been very prolific in 2010 with releases on prestigious labels such as Cocoon and Connaisseur, stays closer to the original but moves it more into dancefloor territory. The third remix is from Mark O’Sullivan, who has been a regular contributor on Process Recordings as a solo producer (Check out his 2009 release “Relapse“), as a remixer and as part of DK7. Mark adds a haunting vocal sample for his “Bliss Mix“.

The original album version completes this all-Irish affair for “Transist“, to be released on vinyl and digital in March 2011.

EMN:Our Favourite remix is by Mark O’Sullivan-deep melodic vibes
