New from Nico Jaar – “Can’t See What Is Burning There”

April 13, 2011 by

Serious new groove from Nico Jaar via Wolf + Lamb‘s DJ Kicks mixtape just when I’d been completely pre-occupied with Visionquest and Crosstown Rebels releases.

Clouds side project + Benoit & Sergio’s oddly familiar melodies

April 6, 2011 by

Random tumbling, following a head nodding beat and some distant melody that seems more familiar than it should. New music from Benoit & Sergio. This is the alternate soundtrack if Biodome was actually a good movie.

MP3: “Principles” – Benoit & Sergio

Rustling little metal-techno track from Clouds’ brand new side project Frag_ment. Great music for plotting.

MP3: “Structure (Function)” – Frag_ment

Miami Tomorrow. Dreaming of Soul Clap.

March 24, 2011 by

Inescapable sun for as long as I can remember and as far as I can see. Miami tomorrow at 8AM, gonna swim in the ocean until they drag me out. Why is it so easy to forget how relentless spring can be? Slow burner from Soul Clap with some seriously addictive vocal processing, I need to see these dudes on a one off somewhere badly.

MP3: “Lonely C” – Soul Clap feat. Charles Levine

Jim-E Stack mix 4 Fader

February 2, 2011 by

Jim-E Stack just made his way to NOLA from San Fran in September, but since then he’s been getting wavvy at all the right times. Remixes for Drop the Lime, NGUZUNGUZU and LOL Boys already in the bag, his mix for FADER went up today. 35 mins of pensive, splayed out dance including several brand new originals. See Jim-E at Radio None, his new monthly with Shuttle (aka Passion Pit’s Nate Donmoyer) at Le Saint.

The Overcomer – “Kingdom of Heaven” (FB Heavenly Mix)

January 31, 2011 by

The mentor teaches lessons to the student. The student takes in the lessons and uses them to achieve success, meanwhile the mentor becomes a burden. The student realizes the mentor taught lessons he himself could never abide by. Strength without strength. The illusion of power, and the birth of doubt.

MP3: “Kingdom of Heaven” – The Overcomer (FB Heavenly Mix)
