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.

Pursuit Grooves new Frantically Hopeful EPK

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2011 by E.N.

Pursuit Grooves will be releasing her solo LP “Frantically Hopeful” in June on Pinch operated Tectonic Recordings. It is guaranteed to be a stand out album for 2011 with early buzz play by Brackles and AlexNut of RinseFM and Anthony Valadez of KCRW

stream “Peace Talks”

and “Transformation of Consciousness”

The LP continues rhythmically where last year’s ‘Fox Trot Mannerisms’ EP left off but launches into a different head space with lyrics touching on current affairs and technological dependency.

Juggling all angles from production, songwriting, MCing and singing, Pursuit Grooves continues what she does best, fusing elements of electronic, hip hop, house and broken beats with sensual melodies and vocals. ‘Frantically Hopeful’ challenges conversations and feet alike, offering a true backdrop to the world we live in today.

Pursuit Grooves has 4 albums under her belt plus numerous live gigs performed in the UK, Germany, Spain, Japan, Australia and beyond. Having received kudos from Gilles Peterson, IDJ, DJ Magazine, Fact Mag, Boomkat etc for last years EP “Fox Trot Mannerisms”, Vanese Smith is one of the few producers in the eclectic beat scene who is also an energetic and skilled vocalist/MC who also mainly uses a hardware sampler when performing live. She is also a 2008 Redbull Music Academy alum which also included Onra, Teebs, Dorian Concept, Lukid, Cardopusher and Fatima. Providing sounds that are equal parts soul, house, and broken beat, Pursuit Grooves always DELIVERS!

Out on the 5th of May 2011

Floating Points and Fatima – Follow You

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on March 7, 2011 by E.N.

The first lady of Eglo has teamed up with the label’s golden boy, with Floating Points and Fatima announcing a collaborative EP entitled Follow You, set for release in May.

It follows Fatima’s memorable vocal turn on the recent Floating Points Ensemble 10″ release on Ninja Tune. On first listen this EP is endowed with a similar shimmering beauty, with languid, jazzy instrumentation sitting respectfully beneath the vocals, from the ethereal atmospherics of A Side opener “Cinnamon” to the raw 808 shuffle on “Red Light” and glacial synth work of “Innervision”.

Follow You will be released via Eglo Records on May 9, 2011.

Download:DVA -XLR8R Podcast 160

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2010 by E.N.

It seems like ages ago, but it has only been a year since we put Cooly G on the cover of XLR8R and began exploring the mutant strain of UK funky being turned out by a select crew of UK producers. A big part of that article was focused around DVA (a.k.a. Scratcha DVA a.k.a. Leon Smart). The former grime disciple and long-time Rinse FM jock was one of the first artists to champion the deeper, housier side of funky, and continues to push boundaries with his percussion-heavy production style and occasionally bonkers sense of melody. On top of his DJ duties, he also runs his own label and has released music on Blackdown’s Keysound Recordings and Kode9′s iconic Hyperdub label. In fact, Hyperdub is home to Scratcha’s next 12″, “Just Vybe” b/w “Step 2 Funk,” which includes a collaboration with vocalist Fatima. That record doesn’t drop until October 4, so this exclusive XLR8R podcast will have to tide over the DVA faithful in the meantime. As expected, he’s sprinkled in plenty of dubplates and unreleased tunes; pay close attention, as this mix is probably a good indication of where funky is headed next.

Rinse – I Love Funky (July 19th)

Rinse Recordings, the label branch of London pirate station Rinse FM, is ready to release a new compilation called I Love Funky.

Headed by DJ Geeneus, Rinse FM is among the UK’s most listened to pirate radio stations, and perhaps the most respected (and established) global channel for grime, dubstep and funky. Much like 2008′s I Love Dubstep, their new collection weaves together more than 50 genre-defining tracks across two discs, mixed this time by in-house DJs Supa D and MA1. Many funky anthems are included, such as Hard House Banton’s “Sirens” and Perempay & Dee’s “In the Air,” along with crossover hits like Donaeo’s “Party Hard” and a few funky-compatible curveballs like Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor” and Kenny Dope’s remix of “Sunday Morning” by Todd Terry.
