Richie Hawtin DE9 Fragments 7. Somewhere in South Africa
‘DE9 Fragments’ is a series of fragmented audio edits based upon my live DJ set recordings. Each one will attempt to capture the feeling and direction of the night, giving those who were there a reminder of the events they experienced while giving those who were not present a fragmented distortion of what they missed.

@ The Forum
Sat 27th April 2013
+ Special Guests

As one of the most important new figureheads to emerge in electronic music in recent years, SJM Concerts and Lock N Load Events are delighted to present the return to London of Scuba, for an exclusive showcase of his outstanding live show. Taking place on Saturday 27th April at The Forum in Kentish Town, Scuba will be joined by some of the most talented, forward-thinking artists currently residing in the scene.

Having released some of the most influential and experimental music of the past few years, Scuba has been instrumental in shaping London and Berlin’s musical landscape. 2012 witnessed the Hotflush label boss develop his innately devastating sound yet further, producing some of the biggest tracks of the year such as ‘The Hope’, ‘Hardbody’ and ‘Talk Torque’. Scuba was also responsible for numerous stand-out performances, including Berghain, The Warehouse Project, Space Ibiza, Fabric, Bestival, Dimensions and Outlook to name a few.


Whilst his Hotflush imprint has blossomed into one of the leading labels in electronic music, Scuba has also stretched his legs into new sounds with an arsenal of rich synths and melodies. Representing a new chapter in Scuba’s unstoppable ascent to the highest echelons of electronic music, his live performance at The Forum will again illustrate his exceptional ability to blow people away by his superlative talent.

Simian Mobile Disco to Release Live Album April 15th on Delicacies

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on January 28, 2013 by J.D.

Simian Mobile Disco to Release Live Album April 15th on DelicaciesThis spring, Simian Mobile Disco will release their first live album since the duo’s conception in 2005.  Live is a flawless mix of SMD releases, past and present, with some brilliant reworkings of some of their most infamous tracks. ‘Cruel Intentions’, ‘Hustler’ and ‘The Beat’, for instance, all feature with a more fevered and fervent strut, showcasing the duo’s effortless way with an infectious beat and a knack for destroying any dancefloor they’re put in charge of. The end result is an exhilarating blend of precise electronics, danceable rhythms and joyous aptitude.

James Ford and Jas Shaw, aka Simian Mobile Disco, have always had an envious ability to transform their sound while firmly staying at the forefront of contemporary music. Their earliest explorations were in an inimitable strain of indie dance that resulted in the now infamous ‘Attack Decay Sustain Release’. With their ever-evolving sound, they went onto release ‘Temporary Pleasure’ that featured a plethora of vocals from the likes of Alexis Taylor, Beth Ditto and Jamie Liddell. Most recently, they have released techno 12” compilation, ‘Delicacies,’ and last year’s critical praised ‘Unpatterns,’ described by XLR8R as SMD’s “magnum opus” making it to number 2 on XLR8R’s end of year album chart. This has seen the duo produce an altogether deeper club friendly sound – a psychedelic-tinged strain of electronic music which still sounds so singularly and utterly them.

This diverse musical excursion has led us to ‘Live’, an album recorded whilst on tour last year, during a performance in Philadelphia in one take, with no edits. With a background of feverish techno rhythms and bounce as well as some vintage analogue electronics, ‘Live’ perfectly displays the brilliance of SMD and is being released on their own Delicacies label. Fittingly, this is their first record distributed through the seminal German electronic label Kompakt.

In addition, this February Simian Mobile Disco will begin a five-date tour of Europe to warm up for summer festivals worldwide. Be sure to catch them live to witness the ‘Live’ experience, including a curated “Delicatessen” warehouse party in London, and get a preview from this video of James and Jas live at FYF in Los Angeles last year.

Scuba: Live (Official Video) featuring new single ‘Hardbody’

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on November 19, 2012 by J.D.

Scuba – Hardbody
(Hotflush – HF037)
Release Date: Mon 10th December 2012
Following the world premiere of his new live show in London last weekend and with latest release ‘Talk Torque’ still on heavy rotation, Hotflush label boss Scuba isn’t wasting any time in returning with new single ‘Hardbody’. The single will be released through Hotflush on December 10th as a one-sided vinyl and digitally as a two week Beatport exclusive.
Premiered by Jackmaster on BBC Radio1 show earlier this month, ‘Hardbody’ has quickly become the subject of fraught anticipation. A natural successor to ‘Talk Torque’ and the latest evolution of his recent output, ‘Hardbody’ is a characteristically well-sculpted piece of dance music. Exploring a deeper house sound, the track’s lush synthwork, glacial arpeggios and soft female vocals are led by propulsive percussion and throbbing low-end.
The new single caps off a stellar year for the DJ, producer and label boss. Having released third album ‘Personality’ to widespread critical acclaim earlier this year, the Summer has been a flurry of festival slots and European wide gigs which culminated in the unveiling of his live show at Oval Space in East London. Imbued with Scuba’s innate musicality, integrity and creativity, the sell-out performance has been received overwhelmingly positively.
Meanwhile, Hotflush continues to go from strength to strength as one of the most consistent strongholds of underground electronic music. Now home to a diverse roster of artists that counts SighaGeorge FitzGerald and Shelter Point amongst its number, a burgeoning release schedule has seen recent singles from Jimmy EdgarJack Dixon and Recondite to name just a few.
