Shangaan electro-inspired minimal dance on Hyperdub.
Katharine Philippa is one of my favourite Irish artists and one of the most talented I’ve seen play live.
Jessy Lanza’s new single has a Shangaan Electro bounce to it. From her forthcoming second album Oh No produced with Junior Boys’ Jeremy Greenspan in her hometown of Ontario, as the first one was, ‘It Means I Love You’ is a playful electronic track that is spacious but bangs hard due to the fast BPM. Lanzy says new album Oh No addresses her own constant nervousness and is inspired by Japanese band Yellow Magic Orchestra.
The band release EP featuring Tricky, Roots Manuva & Young Fathers.
With the Bristol dystopian trip-hop band back on the road and with a new generative app released, the band dropped the first of two EPs due this year before an album and Ritual Spirit is chock with collaborators: Tricky, Roots Manuva, Azekel & Young Fathers.
‘Take It In’ is Massive Attack moodiness on autopilot to be honest, but they excel at these ember-burning dirges. The addition of old pal Tricky lifts the song’s stature.
The Nialler9 TXFM show airs every Thursday night at 10pm for two hours. You can listen live on 105.2FM, online, the TXFM app or if you missed it, on the listen back function on the site, as per below. The show starts six minutes in, right after the news in each hour.
Last night’s show was an Electric Picnic special show.
Harley Stretten aka Flume must have been a weird mood when he made this 10-minute remix of the Arcade Fire’s ‘Afterlife’. Butler and Chassange’s vocals are transformed into yelp of despair with some backward-vocal effects set to a relatively sparse synth melody and pared-back beats. Combined with that artwork, it’s an odd clash of styles, that if nothing else, makes for an interesting listen / take on the song.
Aussie producer Flume is releasing a deluxe version of his popular debut album featuring a mixtape with versions of the tracks with collaborators like Freddie Gibbs, Twin Shadow, How To Dress Well, M.O.P. Killer Mike and more. There are nine tracks in total on the mixtape. The latest, ‘Space Cadet’ is like a proper three-way mashup between Flume, Ghostface Killah & Autre Ne Veut and is the best of the three revealed so far, the others which feature Freddie Gibbs on ‘Holdin On’ and Stalley on ‘Intro’. Check them below:
