Roska – Abrupt / Error Code on Hotflush(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 27, 2011 by dk

Artist: Roska
Title: Error Code
Label: Hotflush Recordings
Cat number: HF028
Format: 12” Vinyl, Digital
Release date: 30 May 2011

A. Error Code
AA. Abrupt

Hotflush presents the full label debut of UK funky figurehead Roska, following his appearance on the recent BACK AND 4TH compilation and seminal remix of Untold’s “Just For You” in 2009. This release brings together two cuts that emphasize a healthy evolution of the Roska style that has made such an impact on bass music in the last couple of years. Retaining the customary hard-hitting percussion and raw syncopated rhythms, a slightly futuristic twinge moves us into more unfamiliar territory, with the energetic synth arpeggiation of “Error Code” backed by the spacier, dubbed-out “Abrupt”.

After releasing their debut album ‘Crooks and Lovers’ last summer to huge critical acclaim and racking up numerous end of year lists including the shortlist for Guardian’s First Album Award, plus sell out tours in North America, Australia and Europe, London duo Mount Kimbie announce the news of their next EP ‘Carbonated’.

Set for release on 27th June on their label Hot Flush, the EP follows the release of the ‘Blind Night Errand’ EP and will be the final release from the album.

‘Carbonated’, the lead track on the EP is joined by two previously unreleased tracks, the buoyant, effervescence of ‘Flux’ and ‘Bave’s Chords’, which showcase the lush, elegant percussive sound Mount Kimbie have become known for. ‘Bave’s Chords’ was recorded around their early EP ‘Maybes’ and ‘Flux’ was created during the album recordings.

Airhead, who’s shortly releasing his own album on Brainmath and is member of James Blakes’ live band, subtly twists ‘Carbonated’ with his remix, while Belgian producer & DJ Peter Van Hoesen creates a six minute dark techno rework for the dancefloor. ‘Adriatic’, also from ‘Crooks and Lovers’ is transformed completely by Klaus with his style of detailed production hitting the mark once more.

‘Crooks and Lovers’ defined Dominic Maker and Kai Campos as an original and exceptional duo whose musical output refuses to be pigeonholed. Abundant in paradoxes, the album floats through dubstep and hip-hop, jazz, techno, post-rock, UK garage, shoegaze, indie and film scores to startling effect.

Mount Kimbie recently performed at the legendary Abbey Road in London for the new Channel 4 programme Abbey Road Debuts, see exclusive footage here: dummymag

One of the highlights at March’s SXSW and currently on a UK tour, Mount Kimbie will shortly head out to Europe before returning to the UK for Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and Field Day Festivals with more to be announced soon.

autoKratz – Becoming the Wraith (Featuring Peter Hook) (Video)+Info

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 27, 2011 by dk


Joy Division and New Order man joins the London duo on their new single
taken from the band’s second album ‘Self Help for Beginners’

Release Date: Monday 13th June


1. Becoming The Wraith (Featuring Peter Hook)
2. A-Train

3. Becoming The Wraith (Alex Goper Remix)
4. Becoming The Wraith (Savage Skulls Remix)
6. Becoming The Wraith (Attaque Remix)

With their long awaited second album also set to drop on 20th June, autoKratz new single Becoming the Wraith is a modern electronic indie anthem. With an epic chorus and emotive melodies underpinned by autoKratz signature driving synths, it’s a track that is perfectly suited to a collaboration with New Order’s Peter Hook.

Of the collaboration Hooky said “I was delighted to be asked by autoKratz and knowing their music I understand why. The song was great before I even touched it. I just put the icing on the cake so it was a real pleasure.”

On having Hooky in the studio, autoKratz returned the compliment; “It was really inspiring to work with Hooky on this track as someone whose legacy has had such a profound impact on us, and the music we make. As soon as he picks up the bass it sounds like no-one else, and he brings a unique melody to the track in a way no-one else could.”

Pioneering French producer Alex Gopher leads the pack of remixes, whilst there’s a big rework from the super hot Savage Skulls, coming off the back of releases on Switch’s Dubsided imprint, Diplo’s Mad Decent and recent collaborations with the likes of Crookers. The package is completed by Attaque, a very promising young British producer who is one of the first signings to autoKratz new label Bad Life. In the band’s typically schizophrenic style, the B-side is A-Train and it’s an insane club banger described by Etienne D’Crecy as ‘It’s a hit!’ and by Mixhell as “A-MAZING!”

The album Self Help for Beginners follows their outstanding 2009 Kitsuné debut Animal and the worldwide success of Always More and Stay The Same. This time round the band take you on an innovative journey through dark electronic pop, hands-in-the-air garage techno and some very carefully nurtured moments of beauty.

There are also further collaborations with more of their heroes including Primal Scream guitarist Andrew Innes and Primal Scream & Kasabian producer Jagz Kooner.

The first glimpse of the new record came in January through the radio 1 supported ‘Opposite of Love’. Jaymo & Andy George described it as “bringing together all the elements of Autokratz we love, effortless vocal & the soul shaking electro they’re renowned for.” With the rest of the LP ram packed with high energy electronic rock and roll, 2011 will without doubt be the band’s most exciting year yet.

Paul Lyman-“Tozer / Witchcraft”

“Tozer / Witchcraft”
Paul Lyman
Veryverywrongindeed Recordings – VVWI031
Release Date: 09 May 2011

Unusually, we have been told to “take the rest of the day off” and give the stupid quill and idiot inkpot of VVWI copy directly to our evil leader Tim Sheridan, and we quote:

“I have to say a few words here. This man is fucking awesome bordering on the supernatural. I’ve been playing these two for a while now and there is no point writing a load of bollocks to a load of DJs who already love us or hate us. Nobody buys tunes anymore anyway outside of DJs. I run this label exactly for tunes like this and people like Paul Lyman. It’s dead simple: In a set of 2 hours maybe one or two tunes get people rushing up to the decks to ask “What the fuck is this!?” Both of these get that. Every time. Now you can have them too.

“Say what you like about us, we have a track record for helping artists who eventually become very well regarded. Paul Lyman doesn’t need our help at all. He will be massive. I know because of the damage these tracks do from extensive road testing. We are lucky to have them. I’m a bit amazed that such a phenomenal group of producers have come to us over the last few years and they just seem to get better. I did some talks at Universities recently and a kid asked “If the music industry is so bad, why do you persist?”. I said that I just love it… and even now I have to pay for it I will never give in… and I won’t let a shit government or load of bankers stop me. That’s all there is to it. Cheers.”

There you have it then. Nothing more to say than dunk yourself in the nearest village pond and if you drown, you are very wrong. And if you float, you are very wrong indeed.
