Lando Kal – Rhythm Sektion on Hotflush

Lando Kal (a.k.a. Antaeus Roy), one half of Bay Area electro duo Lazer Sword, follows up Maneuver, his 2011 debut for Hotflush, with two cuts overflowing with the darkness of a long Berlin winter. A major player in both San Francisco and New York’s underground club scenes, Lando’s love of R&B, dark jungle, Detroit techno and classic house is front and center on these two bass heavy productions.

The infectious Rythym Sektion comes on strong, Lando expertly weaving the vocals of the 1991 rave classic hinted at in the title with threatening drums and kinetic percussion. On the flip, Lando’s dynamism is on display, as Inquisition’s syncopated beats swagger along, insistent and knocking, drawing you into its multi-layered paranoid rhythms.

Lando Kal has released on respected labels Numbers, Rush Hour, Sugarcane Recordings, Still Cold, and has remixed the likes of Sepalcure, Hovatron, Salva, Sepalcure and Doc Daneeka. Up ahead, lookout for a single dropping on Leisure System, the notorious Berghain party collective and label.

V/A
‘DISKOTOPIA VARIOUS ARTISTS VOLUME ONE’
(DISKOTOPIA)

Released date: 6th February 2012
Format: CD / Digital

Coming at the start of a second year of releases, ‘Diskotopia Various Artists Volume One’ is a showcase of the Diskotopia sound.

The label has been grouped together with labels like Night Slugs, Numbers, Hessle Audio, but Diskotopia take a more borderless approach to electronic dance music. Not just for the club, but also made to be appreciated in any setting, the artists represented on this compilation reference a variety of styles from house, techno, UK garage, post-rock, boogie, R&B, grime and even jazz. Although standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the most current and cutting-edge music around, the Diskotopia output has a strong sense of timelessness, meaning that as well as being very “now”, the sound has a longer shelf-life. The label has rapidly been gaining great support and high praise from likes of Addison Groove, Hyetal, Om Unit, Rinse FM, Boomkat, XLR8R, Fact, Numbers.

Set up by UK ex-pat Matt Lyne (A Taut Line) and Japanese female DJ Am Rhein in Osaka in 2005 as a DJ and visual collective, Diskotopia ran frequent events for four years before moving to Tokyo in 2009. BD1982 joined the crew in late 2010, and helped evolve it into a record label. The ethic behind the label comes directly from the premise of the Diskotopia events: a barrier-free approach to quality music. In 2011 Diskotopia released singles and EPs by A Taut Line, Hong Kong In The 60s, BD1982, Visionist, Greeen Linez and Slackk. Diskotopia remixers have included Optimum + Ikonika (Planet Mu, Hyperdub, Night Slugs), Starkey (Ninja Tune, Planet Mu), 80s legendary post-punk act Dominatrix, Royalty, BNJMN (Rush Hour), Photomachine, Murlo, Pacheko.

Tracklisting:
01) BD1982 – Sunshine
02) Visionist – Tropics
03) Savage – I Want It All (BD1982 Refix)
04) RLP – Kreep
05) Optimum – Ghost House
06) Shy One – 40,000
07) A Taut Line – Clouds At Night

10) Greeen Linez – Sallot Ski
11) Bun / Fumitake Tamura – Ri
12) LDFD – Wumpa Fruit
13) DJ Maar – Acid Clapperz (Diskotopia Dub)
14) Greeen Linez – Feel The Pressure (The Phantom Remix)
15) Lamin Fofana – Nia Long
16) 80kidz – Miss Mars (Diskotopia Dub)
17) Greeen Linez – Feel The Pressure (Nites Remix)
18) BD1982 – VHS Nite (Starkey Remix)

Shigeto -Microcosmos(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2011 by E.N.



Ghostly and Rush Hour have teamed up to release select tracks for a 12” white label version of Full Circle Remixes. The reinterpreted material is taken from the Brooklyn-based artist’s 2010 debut full-length Full Circle. It features an impressive international group of artists taking their tools to Shigeto’s originals including Dublin / NYC beatsmith Mike Slott (LuckyMe), LA’s Take (Alpha Pup), London-based Om Unit and Brainfeeder’s Samiyam. The result is a vital exploration of Saginaw’s ever-growing catalogue as well as an essential companion to the artist’s multi-faceted Full Circle.

Of all the figures in the post-dubstep diaspora, few have been as instrumental as Bok Bok. As most readers of XLR8R probably know, the London-based producer/DJ is also the co-founder of the Night Slugs imprint, which has quickly established itself at the top of the heap when it comes to the forward-thinking house and bass music that continues to spring forth from the UK’s long-running hardcore continuum. His place in the canon of UK dance music aside, it’s worth mentioning that Bok Bok (a.k.a. Alex Sushon) is also a highly skilled DJ who is just as likely to pull out a classic house or grime tune as he is a futuristic dubplate. As such, we’ve been hounding him for the past year to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast, and he’s come through in fine style, littering his mix with unheard gems from Night Slugs brethren (Girl Unit, Jam City, Optimum), fellow UK heavy hitters (Geeneus, Ikonika, Untold, Terror Danjah), and a few unexpected jams that still go down smooth—after all, it’s hard to argue with kwaito, Dam-Funk, or Azari & III in any mix.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2010 by E.N.

 This Monday’s FACT mix is by a man named Four Tet. He should require no introduction.

Born Kieran Hebden, Four Tet was already making waves as a member of the group Fridge when he dropped ‘Thirtysixtwentyfive’, his 1998 debut single for Trevor Jackson’s Output label (you can probably guess how long the track lasted). A debut album, Dialogue followed, but what really propelled Hebden to stardom – and set the tone for Four Tet as one of music’s most celebrated and in-demand remixers, later lending his magic to Bloc Party, Radiohead, Anti-Pop Consortium and many more – was his remix of Aphex Twin’s ‘[Cliffs]’, commissioned for Warp Records’ Warp 10 + 3: Remixes collection.

A series of acclaimed albums for Domino followed, along with more improvisational collaborations with late jazz drummer Steve Reid, the end credits of a Bond film, and a blink-and-you-missed it 12” release with Burial, accumulating in this year’s There Is Love In You – arguably Hebden’s most realised, composed, and beautiful album to date.

A large part of Four Tet’s musicianship in recent years has revolved around his residency at Plastic People, the much-loved East London club that earlier this year faced closure. Well, seeing as it’s now re-opened, Hebden will be restarting his residency this Saturday, September 11, and this mix is done to celebrate it. Ramadanman, Villalobos, Oni Ahyun and more feature, along with Four Tet’s own mixes of Rocketnumbernine and Bob Holroyd.

Download: FACT mix 180 – Skudge

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2010 by E.N.

For FACT’s 180th mix, we’re very excited to present a session by mysterious Swedish duo Skudge, the pair behind some of the year’s most talked about house records.

Skudge haven’t released a lot – prior to this year’s four singles on their own self-titled label, there was just the one 12” on alphahouse – but the quality of their output has seen them win fans across the globe, particularly ‘Convolution’, a nimble house stepper which sounds like classic Echospace thrown in a cocktail shaker, and has been played by everyone. It’s one of those tracks where even if you don’t think you know it, trust us, you’ve heard it.

But ‘Convolution’ was clearly only the beginning for this talented pair. The Skudge productions that have followed – ‘Melodrama’, ‘Ontic’, ‘Overture’ – are equally assured, operating in the space somewhere between Ben Klock, Remote Area and Basic Channel, but never sounding anything less than the incredibly individual, focused work of a remarkably talented unit. Skudge have also just contributed a remix of Iori’s ‘Grit’ for Phonica’s white label series – that came out last week, and as you’d expect, is excellent.

The pair’s FACT mix features a healthy dose of Skudge material, including an Aardvarck remix of ‘Convolution’, alongside cuts by Martyn, Mark Broom, Jeff Mills and more.

The Hard Wax and Ostgut Ton man lays down an energetic, hour-long mix for this week’s RA podcast.

As far as contemporary Berlin-based house and techno producers go, you don’t get much better than René Pawlowitz. When he’s not spending his time behind the counter at the city’s legendary Hard Wax record store, he’s busy conjuring up all manner of material in his studio, taking inspiration from classic Detroit and Berlin techno while infusing elements of hardcore, breakbeat, dubstep and ambient along the way. Although the majority of his output is released under the Shed banner, Pawlowitz has diversified his sound with a number of different pseudonyms. His white label offerings as Wax and EQD have become essential selections for fans of rugged Teutonic techno, while he’s also turned his hand to 140bpm bass music with his work as The Panamax Project.

Although René has garnered a reputation for his prolific and consistent approach club-oriented 12-inch singles, he’s also proved his mettle when it comes to creating larger bodies of work. His debut album came in at the #1 spot in our top albums of 2008, with RA’s Will Lynch championing its “lustrous aesthetic, oblique rhythms and coherent diversity,” so seeing as his sophomore full-length—entitled The Traveller—is due to hit the shops later this month, so we thought that it’d be the ideal time to let Pawlowitz demonstrate his idiosyncratic vision of how techno should be.(more at RA)
