Mumford & Sons Announce 2013 “Gentlemen of the Road” Stopover Shows

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2013 by danimonster


Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce the details of the 2013 series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the UK, US, and Canada this summer.

Each Stopover combines the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival. This year the Stopovers are expanding to a Friday night concert followed by an all-day Saturday event. Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists curated by the band themselves. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people will happen in and around the town.

About this year’s upcoming Stopover tour, Mumford & Sons said: “The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them and enjoy what they have to offer.”

Like last year, the outdoor events will take place in carefully selected and unique locations across the United States and Canada following a stop in the UK, and will feature a host of internationally acclaimed acts including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Alabama Shakes, fun., The Vaccines, and many more to be announced. This year’s host towns include Simcoe, Ontario, Troy, OH; Guthrie, OK; and St. Augustine, FL. In 2012, the band curated seven total GOTR Stopovers: four in the United States, two in the UK, and one in Australia.


Tickets to the Stopovers go on sale at 11 am local time on February 8th. The tickets are $109, and will have no additional service fees or hidden charges. Each ticket will include a beautifully-designed, commemorative Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Passport. Campsites are incorporated into each Stopover site, and camping has become an essential part of the Stopover experience and is strongly encouraged. Three-night camping passes begin at $40 per person and can be purchased along with tickets at For full details, see below.

Crosstown Rebels presents Rebel Rave out November 8th

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2010 by J.D.

Label: Crosstown Rebels
Cat no: CRMCD011
Released: Monday November 8th, 2010

Crosstown Rebels celebrate seven years at the helm of some of the most cutting edge dance music on the planet with a compilation of their finest moments and a taste of what is yet to come.

Spanning three discs, thirty artists and three hours of inspirational music, Rebel Rave celebrates the current position of Crosstown Rebels as a global leader in electronic music output. Following in the footsteps of landmark albums including the ‘Rebel Futurism’ and ‘Get Lost’ compilation series, they collate some of the finest releases from the likes of Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, and Soul Clap.

Focusing on their most recent achievements and new artists including Deniz Kurtel, Maceo Plex, and Glimpse, Rebel Rave also touches on some key classic releases from Andre Kraml, Minilogue, and Jennifer Cardini, giving a representation of the collective vision of this unique global family. Uncovering exclusive material from Nicolas Jaar (who remixes future Rebel artist, Maceo Plex), one half of Wolf+Lamb Gadi Mizrahi (remixing the anthem that broke Seth Troxler ‘Love Never Sleeps’) and a special Rebel Rave edit of Rebels’ anthemic Laurent Garnier release.

Disc one and two are collections of musical diversity, touching on early dubstep (ShackletonNext To Nothing’), pure retro sounding house from an original house master (Dyed Soundorom VS Aaron CarlNaked’), to space disco (Brennan Green’s take on Luke Solomon’sDemons’), with many exclusive collaborations (The Royal We AKA Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson & Hector ‘Party Guilt’) and award winning music (MinilogueHitchhiker’s Choice’ which was awarded a CAD for the video).

Disc three is a special collation of Crosstown’s material by Rebel recruit, Clive Henry, who overlaps and recreates his selection of tracks to deliver them in a whole new light. Henry is a long term resident at Ibiza’s infamous DC10 and was part of the long-standing Peace Division outfit, who also released on the label. His 20 years of experience have awarded him a unique insight into the current underground musical horizon and as one of the oldest and closest friends of Crosstown Rebels, he gives a dynamic perspective on its history.

Rebel Rave ( was spawned by a series of forward-thinking films, documenting the Rebel crew’s antics and delving into their musical souls. Starting in 2008, Rebel Rave has followed the Crosstown Rebels family from London to Paris, Manchester to Berlin, New York to Detroit via Miami and San Francisco, each episode giving an honest snapshot of inside the Rebels quirky world. This year the Rebel Rave tour took the family of artists across America and Europe. 

Crosstown Rebels was formed in 2003 by former Head of A&R for London based label, City Rockers, Damian Lazarus, who was responsible for signing and releasing classics like Felix Da Housecat’s ‘Silver Screen’ and Tiga’s ‘Sunglasses’. Inspired by the new energy in international club culture and keen for some of the new and exciting electronic artists to get the attention they deserve, Lazarus formed his own label and has been delivering fresh concepts and ideas into the underground scene ever since. From dazzling events across all corners the globe including the Stink series at T Bar and DC10, room takeovers at Fabric in London and Goa in Madrid, the Rebels sound is admired and devoured from Montreal to Peru, Japan to Australia and all over Europe their fans await their next move.

Urge Overkill Are Back With First New

Recording New Album

Band to Perform at Friar’s Club Roast

of Quentin Tarantino on October 1st

Click HERE to Stream/Download “Effigy”

Celebrated alternative rock favorites Urge Overkill are officially back together 15 years after the release of their last album.  The band released its first full-length, the Steve Albini-produced Jesus Urge Superstar, in 1989 through Touch and Go Records and steadily began ascending in popularity.  By the early 90’s, they were opening for Nirvana and Pearl Jam, and eventually signed to Geffen Records, who releasedtheir beloved classic LP, Saturation.  The group’s biggest moment in the spotlight came when Quentin Tarantino prominently used their cover of Neil Diamond’s“Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon” in his film Pulp Fiction.  The soundtrack soon became one of the most acclaimed and successful of the decade and Urge’s version of “Girl” became a hit.
The reformed band is made up of original singer/guitarists Nash Kato and Eddie “King” Roeser, along with drummer Brian “Bon” Quast (also in Polvo) and bassist Mike “Hadji” Hogkiss,.”  They are currently writing and recording new music in their hometown of Chicago, and will be performing at the Samuel L. Jackson-hosted Friar’s Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino on October 1st
Head over to for an exclusive interview with Roeser about the forthcoming album.

Timo Maas -Balance 017 out October 18th 2010

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2010 by J.D.

Label: Balance Music (Australia)
Cat. No. BAL001CD
Distribution: Republic Of Music (UK) / NEWS (Europe)
Release Date: October 18th 2010

Timo Maas is a master of reinvention. Emerging during the excess of trance’s heyday in the late ‘90s with his self-labelled “Wet & Hard” style that fused techno, progressive house and funk in a riveting futuristic manner, he quickly became the remixer du jour for both the club underground and the commercial big leagues. Paul Oakenfold signed up his debut album Loud for his Perfecto imprint – a modern classic that effortlessly bridged accessibility and raw dancefloor sleaze from electro to breaks to tech and hip-hop – with his second album Pictures sharing a label with the likes of Muse and Garbage. And let’s not forget that remix of Azzido Da Bass, which went on to inspire a generation of LFO-loving dubstep and bass producers. More recently, after a hiatus of a couple of years, he cast aside his chart-breaking fame and got back to his roots, re-embracing his love of techno, teaming up with Italy’s Santos in the studio and becoming a stalwart of Sven Väth’s scene-leading Cocoon Recordings, smashing everyone’s preconceptions of his work wide open. This period of resurrection saw the duo team up under the banner of Mutant Clan, again breaking down musical barriers and giving the world their warped version of techno.

Timo Maas is an artist who will succeed at whatever he puts his hand to, and his next move is always highly anticipated. Behind the decks, he packs one of the hardest punches around, pulling you inside his hypnotic world and creating sets that live, breath and thump as one cohesive, gargantuan entity. So dedicated is he to his craft that he’s built a club on his own land – a Funktion One-packed barn next to his farmhouse in Germany where he rigorously tests out his newest productions and finds. Only a DJ and producer as innovative, technically brilliant and downright loveable could be worthy of an undertaking as prestigious and lauded as the mixing of a Balance compilation. Fittingly, this is Maas’ first official compilation for 9 years.

“The format of the Balance mix series was always quite appealing to me; to spread myself out over 2 CDs without essentially having to “rock” a crowd from the beginning is a very good thing. I was able to also include deeper, downbeat, “earlier set” material, that I personally like to listen to, but am not essentially playing out on a normal club night. For me “the trip” is quite important to create, with a mix of brand new, even exclusive material, but also tracks that rock my world at the moment and most essentially have rocked my world for many years (the so called “classics”)” – Timo Maas

Maas draws us into his musical world with two sumptuous cuts of ambient electronica from his studio, before boldly grabbing our attention with Nicolas Jaar’s already-classic, woozy early morning anthem Time For Us. Disc 1 is all about displaying his melodic, charismatic, emotive side – the turgid electro pop of Vector Lovers, the lush disco licks of Toby Tobias and the tripped-out eccentricity of DJ Koze keeping you hooked, the tempo and rhythmic clout slowly building towards the middle of the mix. Jazzy pianos are drawn in, Maas reminding us that this electronic lark is not the be all and end all of music as the opposing tech house backbone becomes more prominent. Mathias Schaffhäuser’s The 1st Thing signals that Timo’s tech vein is starting to throb, with animal noises permeating the sexy wiggle of the track. A slice of classic Tenaglia ups the ante, and it looks like we’re set for a thumping finale – before the majestic, blissed-out melody of Carl Craig’s At Les pulses in, setting us up for a classy and experimental closer which sees Maas and Santos collide with Elgar and William Orbit.

“The basic rules off DJing haven’t really changed for me. Of course the technical possibilities have, but in the end, it’s all about the selection of music you play – not about the technical skills you’re having when you’re on stage.” – Timo Maas

The second act makes no attempt to disguise its intent, laden with thudding kicks, plenty of rolling percussion and the intricate attention to detail that peppers his sets and productions. It’s largely comprised of works from him and his colleagues from his quirky new label Rockets & Ponies, with numerous exclusives across both discs in fact. Elements that don’t always reveal themselves at first listen are stacked all around this mix – intricate layers, trickery in the stereo field, unearthly effects and chiefly, hefty groove throughout. At first tracks come thick and fast – more sexy Maas magic, into some wonderfully deep Kenny Larkin, before the mix begins to unwind and take its time about things. Things start taking a turn for the weird, clearly revealing Timo’s love for “tripping the ass out of people” – his remix of We Fell To Earth’s Lights Out showing tinges of the ‘70s psych rock that he and Santos while away hours in the studio to, and eerie sci-fi sounds crawling all over the place. Eventually the psychedelic feel subsides, giving way to the blissful melody of Alex Dolby’s re-rub of the Rockets & Ponies anthem Chinese Massage, and the mix then dips down once again into deeper territory before unleashing a torrent of acid filth. Timo’s Lost Veteranos project appears with the gnarly, industrial intensity of It’s Wronger, before a classic 303 double-header from Emmanuel Top and Hardfloor bangs you into submission, taking you back to a wonderfully simple but no less impactful time. A sprinkling of magic dust rounds off this heady compilation in the form of his own epic, unreleased version of Placebo’s typically yearning Ashtray Heart – a fittingly powerful finale.

It was quite an intense process spread out over 4 month to listen, re-listen, collect and choose the music for my Balance CDs. I don’t know how many tracks I was listening to with my “compilation ears” – maybe a few thousand – and thanks to my amazing production partner Santos, I was even able to fill spaces on the mix with the right tracks that we wrote in the production process just for Balance. Nearly everything exclusive was road-tested over the month before I mixed it too. I’m very happy with the result.” – Timo Maas

LORN – “None An Island” Out 13th September

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 23, 2010 by J.D.

LORN – “None An Island”

Out 13th September 2010.

Lorn aka Marcos Ortega returns with a new EP from his critically acclaimed debut album, “Nothing Else.”

One of the standout tracks from a breakthrough record, “None An Island” combines Lorn’s trademark overt emotionalism, brutality and bleakness into something transcendentally beautiful. Brainfeeder labelmate Samiyam then takes “Brainwaves” and converts it into a lowriding, limping journey into paranoia and fear. Lorn ups the ante yet again by returning with two new original tracks, “Never Enough,” which uses a distorted, rasping, alien voice to syncopate its rhythms, and “Until There Is No End,” which shows that Ortega’s grasp of melody is never compromised by the sheer heaviness of his tracks.

A fantastic accompaniment to his album and a further delving into his sound, “None An Island” strongly suggests we’ll be hearing much more from Lorn for a long time to come…


Eskmo – Eskmo album on Ninja Tune October 4th+Cloudlight video

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2010 by J.D.

Brendan Angelides, AKA Eskmo, will release his first proper artist album this fall on London-based label Ninja Tune.

For the past decade or so, Angelides has pushed a syncopated electronic sound that lies somewhere between dubstep and hip-hop, with his own vocals lending his tracks a dreamy, intimate feel. The bulk of his catalog has been released on his own imprints, Eskmo Recordings and Ancestor, though over the past year he’s been picked up by illustrious UK labels like Warp and Planet Mu in addition to Ninja Tune. He’s also done collaborative work with fellow Californian Amon Tobin under the moniker Eskamon.

Eskmo will be Angiledes’s first artist album aside from Machines On Task, a CD he gave out for free between 1999 and 2000 at some of his first performances. It will be preceded by Cloudlight, a 12-inch featuring the album’s opening song alongside a remix by Lorn and a track called “Come Back,” which can be had for free over at Ekmo’s homepage. You can watch the starry-eyed music video for “Cloudlight” below:

01. Cloudlight
02. We Got More
03. Color Dropping
04. The Melody
05. You Go, I See That
06. We Have Invisible Friends (Washed Mix)
07. Become Matter Soon, For You
08. Moving Glowstream
09. Starships
10. Communication
11. Siblings
12. Gold & Stone
13. My Gears Are Starting To Tremble

Nina Tune will release Eskmo on October 4th, 2010.
