Monkey Mashup

Modeselektor's first 'official' mix cd was launched this week and damn fine it is too!

At just over an hour long it's a little short but they still manage to fit over 30 tracks into it and it's party beats from start to finish. We strongly recommend you buy it!

It's a similar in style to the mix they did for the 'Boomkat Selected Mixtape' series a few years back, mixing up techno, dubstep, hip hop and whatever else takes their fancy although this one's a little more bleep oriented...which is nice.

Anyhow, here's the aforementioned Boomkat mix as well as a remix from last year of Modeselektor's Silikon by Siriusmo, one of the artists to feature on Boogybytes 3. Enjoy!

No Repetitive Beats

Well, in truth there's actually plenty of repetitive beats in key's music but their work is available for free via the musiciam netlabel whose ethos is that any of the music provided via their site needs to be unique / unrepeatable by having being either recorded or played live, containing improvised overlays or even just being the only copy of a particular file.

I've not had chance to check out the rest of the stuff on the musiciam site yet but I discovered it after being given a key demo. It's a 32 minute live techno recording using lots of nice tribal / ethnic style percussion and of course some tasty synth sounds too. I think these guys are based in Brighton although do live gigs in other places as well. Check out the set below and look out for them at your local rave bunker.

Wot No Bleeps?

Not really sure I should be posting this given that it doesn't exactly fit with our policy of bringing you quality electronic music but seeing as we've been a bit slack with giving you much music at all in recent weeks I figured what the hell.

I came across Archie Bronson Outfit after returning from the pub a couple of weeks ago and seeing them on Channel 4's Transmission. Now maybe it was just the effects of the beer, but at the time I thought their performance was superb, mixing up dark guitar sounds with some interesting vocals. Having hunted down the track in question I'm still pretty taken by it although I'm not so sure about the chorus. They're part of Domino's varied artist roster and if you like this then it's well worth checking out they're album, Derdang Derdang as it continues in a similar vein. You can buy a copy here.

Jazz Noodles

Just a quick post to tell you about some new material by Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) and Steve Reid. Tongues is the new album by the pair and while improvised, off-kilter, avant-garde Jazz noodling is not my usual bag, this track sounds rather interesting and I'm sure someone out there will like it (although I'm not quite sure who... or why).

This is much more up ill-ec-tro-nic's street, an Audion remix. If all else fails give it Matthew Dear to sort out.
