Outlook Festival returns to Croatia this September after last year’s best ever event to date, a celebratory fusion of dub, reggae, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, garage, house and more on the dazzling Adriatic coast. Joining the dots between musical legends right through to the next generation of up and coming talent, again some of the finest live acts and DJs descend upon a 19th century fort for five days and nights of amazing music. Close to the historic city of Pula in Croatia’s northern region of Istria, the now iconic Outlook sets the agenda with a world-class array of performers in a collection of truly spectacular locations, set in and around an abandoned fort. Choose from a dungeon, a courtyard, a moat, a boat, the beach or the festival’s main stage set on a harbour. Outlook combines a heady mix of fun in the sun and under the stars as a dedication to sound culture, which has just revealed its first wave of names.

Lucky Paul debut EP on Somethinksounds with special remixes from G$ v Gold (Gadi Mizrahi & Eli Goldstein), Gang Colours & Eliphino+Free Download

Somethinksounds (the brainchild of cult culture magazine somethinkblue) put their name on the map last year with Eliphino’s wildly successful debut release ‘The Undivided Whole” EP. This year the label is back with their second output, “The Slow Ground” by newcomer, Lucky Paul. This release is part one of an impressive aural package (the followup dropping in early summer 2011) and comes complete with three remixes, most notably a worldwide exclusive first from G$ vs Gold, Gadi Mizrahi of Wolf & Lamb and Eli Gold of Soul Clap, respectively.

Situated comfortably between the bassy, futuristic hip hop of Flying Lotus and Tokimosta, the progressive sounds of Animal Collective and Panda Bear and the melancholy productions of Mount Kimbie, James Blake and The xx, “Slow Ground” is sure to attract fans from across the mutual spectrum.

Although Lucky Paul (a New Zealander currently residing in Berlin) is a new name for most, he’s been carefully honing his craft all over the world for years. He spent one year in Brazil studying it’s traditional percussion, and followed it up with a trip to India where he spent time living with and learning from Indian music legend Pandit Vikash Maharaj and his musical family. Lucky Paul’s musical vision quest then led him to Korea where he spent 7 months studying with Bae il Dong – a Pansori singer who learned his art by living near a waterfall for 5 years, singing into the water for fifteen hours a day.

His musical resume speaks for itself. Lucky Paul has performed and worked with top musicians from his home country New Zealand, including Ladi 6, Julien Dyne, and Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle). And more recently began drumming for and working with Mocky and Chilly Gonzalez.

“Slow Ground” features four original tracks and three remixes by some of the industry’s best. The EP opens with ‘Clouds’ a track whose heavy drum and percussion work appears to be a musical nod to Lucky Paul’s time in Brazil. Feeling both anthemic and ethereal at once, 1970’s disco legends The Bee Gee’s deliver the vocal sample.

Canadian artist Milosh (plugresearch/K7!) provides the moody vocals on the soulful ‘Thought We Were Alone”. His album ‘Meme’ was ranked #29 in better Propoganda’s 100 albums of the decade and in 2008 he was included in iTunes top ten electronic albums of the year. Most recently he can be heard on a track for Daedelus’ new EP out on Ninja Tune.

The haunting title track, ‘Slow Ground’ is both darkness and light. The tracks sporadic piano and flute-like notes balance the dark choral echoing and stomping bass, giving new meaning to emotional electronica. Next up is ‘Demon Spawn’ featuring vocals from Jamie Lidell’s drummer Pegasus Warning, aka Guillermo Brown. This production is the perfect follow-up, delivering a slow, crawling beat with a slightly off-key mutant funk vocal.

‘Thought We Were Alone’ gets the individual remix treatment by Gang Colours, who are hotly tipped as one of 2011’s biggest emerging stars with an album out soon on Giles Peterson’s label, Brownswood Recordings. Next up labelmate Eliphino takes a swing. The final remix is the exciting worldwide exclusive by G$ vs Gold.
That’s all – we’ll let the music do the talking now.

Jack Dixon & Robin Card-Decade EP with remixes from Eliphino, James Fox & Colo (preview)

Following music from Ramadanman, Bearweasel, and Spatial, amongst others, the latest release on TAKE Records is a four track EP from Jack Dixon & Robin Card, two producers with a distinct sound encompassing both the melodic influence of the Motor City and the drumplay of the UK underground.

‘Adrian’ opens the EP, fusing carefully filtered synths and unintelligible vocal snippets to create a dense sonic field. ‘Leave’ works skittering hi-hat patterns around speaker-worrying low-end, while ‘Keith’ provides the most uplifting moment on the package, with rattling snares tripping enthusiastically over both fluid and chopped melodic elements. The last of the original tracks, ‘Alone’, finds a detuned synth loop lurching awkwardly over steady 2-step drums, leaving just enough space for a detached-sounding vocal refrain.

Brownswood Recordings’ Eliphino turns in the first of the remixes, fitting ‘Keith’ with his own brand of organic percussion and paring it with twinkling arpeggios. Label mainstay James Fox, fresh from a release on Brighton’s Well Rounded, takes the core elements of ‘Leave’ and slows them to a more house-friendly tempo, adding fresh drumwork and well-marshalled pauses to complete the transition. Finally Colo, TAKE’s newest signings, rebuild ‘Alone’ as a piece of super-slow motion 4/4, replaying the original melody and bringing all manner of analogue equipment to bear on a mix that belies their age.
