Midlake ‘Late Night Tales’

Midlake ‘Late Night Tales’ (Late Night Tales)
[Mix Album – Indie/Folk/Rock]

Journeying across the plains of North America, the wilds of the British Isles and fleeting visits to Holland and Iceland, Midlake’s Late Night Tales is a voyage through all that mesmerises and enchants. Incorporating tracks from the likes of deeply seductive vocalist Scott Walker to Bjork (a frequent among the Late Night Tales compilations) Midlake’s instalment certainly does not disappoint.

Memory9 feat. Juakali – Mission EP(Stream ,released 17th January)+(Video)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2011 by dk

Milan’s prodigious bleep freak Memory9 is back with ‘Mission’, his new single on Skanky Panky Records, complete with remixes from Ninja Tunes veteran King Cannibal, glitch hop champion Mochipet and UK Funky scenesters SPR All-Stars. ‘Mission’ is a crushing piece of ragga-tronica, with slamming drum hits colliding with brooding basslines and distorted lead hooks. Juakali brings his positive and unique vocal styles to the track, culminating in a huge anthemic chorus.
Memory9 a.k.a. Gadi Sassoon is a Milan-based producer who combines a virtuosic control of live electronics with organic musicianship to create truly intriguing music, influenced by the sounds of Modeselektor, Aphex Twin and Squarepusher as well as jazz and punk rock.
A largely self-taught musician, Sassoon started performing at the age of 15 in the Italian underground and shortly after achieved a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music on the grounds of his outstanding talent. The years that followed were spent performing many memorable shows across North America and Europe, eventually landing him in London, where he started playing regularly at clubs and festivals. A residency with Soundcrash established his reputation as a high-calibre performer through his unique setups – from solo work with peculiar machines and homemade software to a full live setup with two drum kits, live electronics and guitar.

On the remix front, the King Cannibal take on Memory9’s original is a floor shattering affair, stripping back the layers leaving huge drums that pin down cavernous bass and lead lines. The King has just dropped one of the biggest mixtapes of the year, and the “Way of the Ninja” compilation is currently up for a prestigious DJ magazine “Best of British” award.

Direct from California, Mochipet’s interpretation is a stripped down affair leaving Juakali’s vocals at the forefront accompanied by P-Funk synth licks and epic arpeggiated chorus. Wrapping things up nicely on a UK Funky flex is the SPR All-Stars remix, where a tightly syncopated kuduru beat and growling bass synths switching between half-time swagger and full pace keep things moving.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on December 23, 2010 by dk

Fresh from the success of the Animate EP (Cheap Thrills), Kill Light (aka Richard Day & Tom Vella) debut on the hot new Black Butter Records with the Spitting Feathers EP. ‘Daydream’ has a future garage vibe, setting soulful female vocals against a driving bass riff and some brilliant drum programming. Remix duites come from Mad Decent’s Savage Skulls, MAD Records favourites, Beware & Motorpitch and Wearhouse Music label boss Lee Mortimer, all bringing their own special something to the mix…

‘Spitting Feathers’ comes in two parts: Pt. 1 has a playful UK funky feel, mixing organic tropical drums and vocals with intricate layers of bleeps and beeps whilst Pt 2. with it’s epic 808 state esq breakdown of pads and saxes sounds fresher than ever set in the context of a hard hitting 2 step break.

Groove Armada/Jamiroquai/Belle & Sebastian Editions Available Digitally For The First Time

As Late Night Tales prepares to announce exciting new editions for its 10th anniversary in 2011, three of the most memorable from the 23 title strong series have been remastered and made available digitally for the first time.

Groove Armada

 In their second shot at coining the perfect LNT mix, Groove Armada’s milestone 20th edition is much more than just a collection of songs. Many of the tracks have been painstakingly reedited and re-sequenced to create a seamless mix that flows smoothly despite the eclectic selection. “High quality grooves” – Resident Advisor

The all star, funk fueled Jamiroquai edition was originally released way back in 2003 and fast became one of the biggest selling titles in the series. A fluid journey through the twilight hours, its an excellent insight into Jamiroquai’s musical inspirations.

Belle & Sebastian
Never tied to any scene in the first place, Belle & Sebastian seem to have developed as a band that can draw influences from just about anywhere. Pure pop, ‘60s psyche, ‘70s rock, West Coast harmonies, beat groups, folk balladeering, punk, indie, girl groups and bossanova are just a few of the slants to crop up within the Belles’ own work and on their fresh, varied and effortlessly hip take on Late Night Tales.
“Pure genius” – NME

About The Series
The Late Night Tales series was established way back with Fila Brazilia mixing up the first of what would continue to be the choice of music connoisseurs worldwide.

The idea was to let the world’s best artists delve deep into their collections to create the ultimate late night collection.

Since its conception, we’ve seen the likes of Groove Armada, The Flaming Lips, Four Tet, Belle & Sebastian, Air and many more step up to produce their own individual take on the concept.

The series continues to dazzle with albums from Snow Patrol, Arctic Monkeys, Cinematic Orchestra, Nouvelle Vague and Fatboy Slim, all exploring vastly different styles but all delivering a perfect musical package.

Not only is it a collection of the artist’s favourite tracks and inspirations, there’s also a special, and exclusive might we add, cover version included. This is the chance for our compilers to tackle a hidden gem or pay tribute to an idol by creating something totally new and exciting.

And as if all this wasn’t enough, each mix is put to sleep with a special Late Night spoken word story, taking in the likes of David Shrigley, Bootsy Collins, Brian Blessed and more recently Will Self. | |
