Get ready for two a genius EDM racer! BOYS NOIZE (Boysnoize Records) and MR. OIZO (Ed Banger) finally “collide”. They joined forces and created a duo called HANDBRAEKES.
Their first track “Callgurls” has already been premiered on Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1) late 2011 and is an eye-opener of what you can expect of two geniuses clashing their machine parks together: 100% a #1! These four tracks are setting a new benchmark in the EDM scene. Release date February 06th, exclusive on Beatport. Two weeks later on February 20th, it will be available on vinyl and digital on all other download platforms.
“Callgurls”, “Riho”, “The Qat” and “Milc” make one thing clear, don’t mess with those two “racers” on the decks. The energetic sounds, the never ending drive through all tracks, the genius production and sudden stylistic elements… this release is an obvious rocker.
Full-throttle on HANDBRAEKES.

The celebrated Scottish indie pop group Belle and Sebastian are welcomed back for a second Late Night Tales, the 27th in the esteemed compilation series. Belle and Sebastian formed in Glasgow in 1996 where the success of college recorded cult debut album ‘Tigermilk’ led the band to signing to Jeepster for ‘If You´re Feeling Sinister’; listed by Pitchfork at #14 in its top 100 albums of the 90s and is widely considered the band´s masterpiece. Following the critically acclaimed ‘The Boy With The Arab Strap’ B&S signed with Rough Trade (UK) and Matador (US) and have released a further five albums, most recently ‘Belle And Sebastian Write About Love’ in 2010. Other accolades include being voted Scotland´s greatest band in a poll by The List in 2005, their own Bowlie Weekender festival, a Brit Award and Mercury Music Prize and Ivor Novello Award nominations. The current line-up is founder Stuart Murdoch, Stevie Jackson, Chris Geddes, Richard Colburn, Sarah Martin, Mick Cooke and Bobby Kildea.
Their scene straddling 2006 Late Night Tales included pure pop, 60s psyche, 70s rock, West Coast harmonies, beat groups, folk balladering, punk, indie, girl groups and bossanova. This new 2012 selection delves deeper into their shared influences and inspirations, along with a subtle nod to digging for rare sampled beats: not perhaps a characteristic usually associated with B&S. World-wise psychedelic breaks thread the mix together; significantly so with two tracks from Broadcast bookending a first half that includes late 60s dreamers The Wonder Who? and Joe Pass, father of Ethio-jazz Mulatu Astatke, harpist Dorothy Ashby and the 21stcentury beats of Gold Panda.
Following a mid-section detour through dissonant post-punk and deep jazz courtesy of The Pop Group and Stan Tracey Quartet; recent releases from fellow Scots Remember Remember and South Carolina’s Toro Y Moirub shoulders with Ce´cile’s 2002 Cure referencing riddim ‘Rude Bwoy Thug Life’ and Blood, Sweat & Tears classic version of ‘Spinning Wheel’. For the obligatory Late Night Tales cover version, Belle and Sebastian have chosen The Primitive’s 1988 pop-punk classic ‘Crash’, recreated in the band’s own inimitable style. Two beautiful records close the mix: Steve Parks haunting soul vocal ‘Still Thinking Of You’ and an excerpt of the calm improvisation ‘On The Other Ocean’ from David Behrman’s 1977 experimental album. As ever, the trip concludes with our bedtime story with the third part of Paul Morley’s ‘Lost For Words’.
This is music for the Celt in all of us. Holed up in a West End of Glasgow apartment, the wind yowling mercilessly about us, we drift off to the sound of bliss. There is only warmth here and, obviously, a draft or two fired in the direction of Belle and her good friend Sebastien.

“Stuart Howard aka Lapalux has come up with something special for his first release with Cali’s finest, Brainfeeder. Having made his name with his cassette-only “Many Faces Out Of Focus” and acclaimed bootlegs and remixes he returns with a seven track EP of such poise and beauty, one listen is enough to know you’re onto something special.
Lapalux bathes your brain in lush textures, surprising and explosive atmospheres set in unencountered, unearthly spaces, all somehow perfectly set against catchy rolling choruses informed by pop and commercial R&B. On the “When You’re Gone” EP he channels and refines his sound and shapes it into hazy, woozy emotion. Whether working with a singer like Py (on “Moments”), or deconstructing found samples and his own voice, Howard stretches, bends and warps sound to make soul – not plastic posturing but real emotion made of synthetic sound.”
