Also, some repost action for good measure:
Drake – “Forever (Nosaj Thing Remix):”
It has been a couple months since we’ve published any music by Machinedrum. The song above definitely called for it though.
Historically, electronic music that has received any kind of mainstream attention has been laughably cheesy, with the occasional decent song getting high-volume exposure. Lately music by producers that were pretty much off the pop radar for years is getting picked-up by well-known and respected rappers. Commercial hip hop has needed instrumentals with respectable electronic production techniques and influence for years now. Glad to see that day has finally arrived.
NEW EP – VENUS BAR
RELEASED 20 MAY 2013 ON POLICE RECORDS/DESIRE
TRACKLISTING: 1. Venus Bar 2. Mort à Vegas 3. Zombies 4. Autostrada 5. Venus Bar – Pyramid Remix 6. Venus Bar – Juveniles Remix 7. That Obscure Object of desire – Venus Bar (Cover)
Rising Parisian star, AV (Adrien Viot) announces his debut EP, Venus Bar via Police Records/Desire this spring.
French Cold Wave was divided in two camps: one side were the bands like Guerre Froide, Les Maîtres, Opera Multi Steel inspired by Joy Division, The Cure and Bauhaus. On the flip side embraced the poppier/synth sound with artists like Taxi Girl, Mathematiques Modernes, Nini Raviolette and Suicide Romeo.
AV is definitively inspired by the 80s pop camp; the energy rush of the post-punk era with a synth-pop touch and great sense of melody.
Rather than lighting candles to his old 80’s glory he prefers to invite them inside the chaos of his generation. Nods towards Suicide, Kraftwerk & Taxi Girl are present in AV, but he’s far from being one of those 80s revival nostalgia projects, his production is current, dirty but vibrant, coupled with tongue in cheek lyrics.
Catch AV live in the UK this September as he brings his brand of French decadence to London, Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol and Brighton.
Jeremy Olander / Kraak & Smaak /
Grant Nalder & Adam Asenjo remixes.
It’s been over 20 years since Orbital teamed up with Mike Hazell to form Golden Girls and release one of the undisputable club classics of the ecstacy generation – Kinetic.
The riff is so recognisable and always raises a cheer. It has been remixed numerous times over the years as each new generation gets to hear it for the first time with a slightly new flavor to make that riff sound so right in DJ’s current sets.
This time Kraak & Smaak step up to the plate with a 90’s garage inspired remix that slowly morphs into the most recognisable riff in rave. Supported by Tensnake, Jesse Rose and Hot Since 82 this is a sure fire winner.
Next up Jeremy Olander – this mix started off as a bootleg that we heard Eric Prydz dropping and quickly became part of the official package. Big room and festival badness beckons for this beauty. Finally Floorplay regulars Grant Nalder & Adam Asenjo drop a mix that is perfect for house and tech house DJ’s.
You’ll know it when you hear it….
