The Other Tribe ‘My Girl'(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2013 by dk


Though part of the same Bristol scene that has spawned Julio Bashmore and Eats Everything, The Other Tribe are fast emerging as a musical entity like no other. As comfortable tearing up a festival main stage as they are a warehouse party, their bass-heavy, deep house influenced sound has rapidly won them a growing and devoted fanbase. ‘My Girl’ is the band’s new single, released in September through Sony’s Relentless imprint.

After kicking off their UK spring tour with a sell-out show at London’s XOYO, The Other Tribe (aka James, Miles, Ollie, Alex and Max) are poised to run riot across their favourite stomping ground – the summer festival season – with forthcoming performances at Glastonbury, Ibiza and Mallorca Rocks, Blissfields, Beatherder, Farrfest, Secret Garden Party, Boardmasters and beyond.

A recent highest new entry on the Cool Cuts chart, ‘Your Kisses’ will be available as an exclusive pre-order track for ‘My Girl’. The Other Tribe’s growing discography includes previous tracks ‘We Should Be Dancing’, ‘Sing With Your Feet’ and their debut chart hit, ‘Skirts’.

In between a hefty tour schedule, The Other Tribe have been bunkered down at their studio alongside producer Mark Ralph (Hot Natured, Hot Chip, Digitalism), distilling their hedonistic live show into the tracks that will form their debut album.

Quiet Village – Remixed with love by Maxxi & Zeus

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2012 by dk

Since their highly anticipated and widely acclaimed 2008 debut album ´Silent Movie´, Quiet Village, aka Matt Edwards and Joel Martin have been exploring other music avenues under their Maxxi & Zeus moniker. Now they are back, with ´Too High To Move´ a compilation of their most inspiring and sought after remixes to date, stitched together with love.

Quiet Village are the infamous duo comprising of Matt Edwards AKA Radio Slave and Joel Martin. Their debut album on !K7 caught the attention of the likes of Q, NME and Vice magazine for its Balearic style spiked with reggae, Motown and slow funk. A strange concoction though it sounded it won them high profile performances at Sonar by Day, Barcelona, Glastonbury and the Big Chill festival in the UK and as far as Hong Kong and quickly gained wide from extreme ends of music listening tastes.

Then they disappeared and regrouped as Maxxi & Zeus, releasing obscure and highly treasured cuts on seminal label International Feel. Now it’s time for the original whimsical musical outlet to reignite and blaze on Rekids subsidiary, Pyramid Of Mars. It’s almost like a rebirth but not quite, its Quiet Village back to life, perhaps better than before.

Sounding like a soundtrack to Easy Rider or some vintage flick you develop an unhealthy obsession with, ‘Too High To Move’ takes its title from a track from the original album but is in fact a collection of their best and most sought after remixes. Its obscure and tasteful selection is one that shows revered taste only an extended period of serious record collecting could adhere to.

The movie itself takes a number of twists and turns of action and suspense until the closing moments from Black Devil Disco Club. Long infusions, gentle repetitions and subtle shifts from the jungle to the seaside linger long enough to shine light into the murky waters of the duo’s mind. Their adventures begin with a cruising speed of around 50mph taking in krautrock cult heroes Allez Allez and the spellbinding enigma, Muddbefore pushing the foot down for some raw 4/4 heroes in the form of Francois K and Mark E. Featuring cameos from Grandad Bob and Rekids’ own lovechild Toby Tobias and Bubble Club, the Quiet Village version shoots a cult classic with surround sound and HD quality experience.    

Label: Pyramid Of Mars
Cat no: POMCD001
Distribution: Above Board
Released: Monday June 25th, 2012


  1. Allez Allez – African Queen (Quiet Village Dub)
  2. Mudd – Speilplatz (Quiet Village Unreleased Instrumental Remix)
  3. Francois K – The Road Of Life (Quiet Village Unreleased Dub)
  4. Ronny & Renzo – Uniqorns (Quiet Village Remix)
  5. Luger E-Go – A Trader In Furs (Quiet Village Remix)
  6. Mark E & Dragon – Good Times (Quiet Village Remix)
  7. Toby Tobias – Dave’s Sex Bits (Quiet Village Remix)
  8. Grandad Bob – Pictures (Quiet Village Remix)
  9. Bubble Club – The Goddess (Quiet Village Remix)
  10. Black Devil Disco Club – I Regret The Flower Power (Quiet Village Remix)


Quiet Village reappear as the genreless state reemerges and begins to fill up a sea of writhing creatures melting within the current pot. As hypnotic as the rotation of a disco ball, this is pretty body-conscious stuff. Quiet Village sounds like the name of a place glimpsed in a film, or perhaps a dream largely due to the duo’s addiction to archiving. Both self-confessed record nerds that are intent upon forging a shimmering totality from their sagging shelves of vinyl.

The group consists of Joel Martin, a longtime record collector, curator, DJ and music supervisor, and Matt Edwards, best known as Radio Slave an acclaimed producer of high-octane house and techno, tapped for remixes by the likes of X-Press 2, Tiga, Kylie, Hell, Booka Shade, Moby, Trentemøller and more. The two met in the early ’90s in the town of Catford, England, southeast of London, where they bonded over a shared love of old disco, acid house and carboot sales. Their music is inspired by classic soundtracks, vintage TV adverts and long-forgotten BBC programs, triggering an emotional response so deep-seated it’s practically subliminal. They’ve since done remixes for the likes of Gorillaz, François K, and Cosmo Vitelli and ‘Too High To Move’ is a testament to their skill in the process.

Released on the new Pyramid Of Mars label, a new subsidiary of Rekids that will focus on more experimental and leftfield projects including forthcoming projects from Quiet Village, Vince Watson, The Machine v´s Joe Clausell and A&Red by Matt Edwards.

“Romantically, one could posit this collective pleasure as a middle-aged, virtual reconstruction of the elated sense of community Orbital generated in their ‘90s heyday. From a distance, it smells suspiciously of nostalgia. “Wonky”, though, is much stronger than that. It might be an album that recaptures the voluptuous, saturated melodies and rave epiphanies of the Hartnoll brothers at their peak, but it also proves the enduring flexibility of Orbital’s work. As it turns out, “Wonky” is solid, complex and hugely rewarding.”
– Uncut Magazine

Undefeated champions of British electronic music, Orbital get back in the ring in 2012 with Wonky, their first new album in eight years, which will be released on April 3rd and was produced by renowned UK producer and knob twiddler Flood (PJ Harvey/Depeche Mode/U2). It will be preceded by single‘New France’ (with Zola Jesus), set for release on March 27th.
Recently reunited following a long sabbatical, Paul and Phil Hartnoll are back on fighting-fit form and ready to reclaim their title as lightheaded lords of the dance arena. Both timeless and contemporary, heartwarming and exhilarating, Wonky puts a vividly modern spin on their signature blend of richly melodic, deeply emotive electronica. Confident, energised and eclectic, Wonky already sounds like the duo’s finest album to date. Gleaming, whooshing, shimmering tracks like ‘Straight Sun’ and ‘Stringy Acid’ instantly tap into the warm-blooded rush and restless bounce of classic Orbital. These are future festival rocking anthems in the making, right up there with vintage live favourites ‘Chime’ and ‘Belfast’.

Orbital Return In April with ‘Wonky’, 1st New Album in Eight Years
Album features collaborations with Zola Jesus and Lady Leshurr

UK Tour In April, Culminating in Royal Albert Hall Concert

Undefeated champions of British electronic music, Orbital get back in the ring in 2012 with Wonky, their first new album in eight years. Recently reunited following a long sabbatical, Paul and Phil Hartnoll are back on fighting-fit form and ready to reclaim their title. Both timeless and contemporary, Wonky puts a vividly modern spin on their signature blend of richly melodic, deeply emotive electronica.

Confident, energised and eclectic, Wonky already sounds like the duo’s finest album to date. Gleaming, whooshing, shimmering tracks like Straight Sun and Stringy Acid instantly tap into the warm-blooded rush and restless bounce of classic Orbital. These are future festival- rocking anthems in the making, right up there with vintage live favourites Chime and Belfast.

But there are nods to cutting-edge club culture on Wonky too – including a guest appearance by hotly tipped Birmingham grime MC Lady Leshurr on the album’s irresistibly vibrant electro-rap title track. The Hartnolls even give a radical post-dubstep makeover to their much-loved techno-rock classic Satan, reworking it into a razor- backed beast of shuddering bass called Beelzedub.

Like all Orbital albums, Wonky defies narrow-minded caricatures of electronic music as cold and mechanical. Playful humour and warm humanity are woven into its fabric – from the heart-tugging harmonies and woozy vocal layers of Never and Distractions, to the guest appearance by the highly acclaimed LA-based electronic musician Zola Jesus on the brooding, atmospheric epic New France. These are machine-made symphonies to stir the soul and electrify the senses.

When I’m writing music, if it doesn’t move you emotionally, it’s not working,” Paul explains. “It has to give me butterflies. I have to make myself cry in the studio.”

Formed in the late 1980s, Orbital released a string of classic 1990s singles including Chime, Style, The Box and Satan. Paul and Phil put their partnership on hold in 2004, but a five-year absence only increased demand for their exhilarating music and legendary live shows. The brothers finally announced their comeback with a triumphant headline set at the Big Chill in 2009. Orbital were revitalised, rebooted, reunited – and it felt so good.

The idea for Wonky sprang from Orbital’s rapturously received live comeback. A year of sell-out tours and euphoric festival appearances, including Coachella and Glastonbury, was followed by a further year of globe-trotting DJ sets. This allowed the brothers to road-test the new album in raw form, then make instant adjustments in the studio in response to crowd reactions.

That was really beneficial to our writing,” Phil says. “Trying out tracks in front of audiences, listening through their ears, getting responses. That’s been a really good string to our bow.

Wonky was recorded in Orbital’s Brighton home base, then mixed in London with internationally acclaimed producer Mark “Flood” Ellis, whose stellar list of previous collaborators includes PJ Harvey, U2 and Nine Inch Nails.

“I mostly remember Flood from all the electronic stuff like Cabaret Voltaire, Depeche Mode and Renegade Soundwave,” Paul says. “He also has a good structural overview of music, because he’s not just a dance producer, he comes from a more holistic song viewpoint, which is how we like to approach it.”

From the intoxicating energy rush and glistening fanfares of its mighty opening track, One Big Moment, to the restless bounce and optimistic glow of its galloping finale, Where Is It Going, the new Orbital album was designed to follow an emotional and musical “road map” devised by Paul and Phil. Mark Farrow’s sumptuous sleeve artwork reflects this circular narrative. “The whole process of this album has really been a case of the book writing itself,” Paul explains.

Reunited and revitalised, Orbital have come full circle with Wonky. Paul and Phil can hardly wait to unleash the full album in its natural habitat, the live stage. The undefeated champions of British electronic music are back, sounding bigger and better than ever.

For me these feel like the most enjoyable Orbital times that we’ve ever had,” Phil says. “It’s just getting better and better. It feels like a new beginning.”

They’re coming over to the US (in their core three-person incarnation) for a full tour in October/November (find the full routinghere).
