Now that There Is Love In You is most likely seeping into your ear canal, you’ll probably be experiencing a lot of love for the record.

If you’re still looking for more, Mr. Hebden graced the airwaves of BBC Radio 1 with an outstanding two hour Essential Mix over the weekend to promote the release. It starts with my favourite track at the moment, ‘Angel Echoes’ and goes on to include tracks from Floating Points, Joy Orbison, Moodymann and is pretty much a must-hear from start to finish. Tracklisting below.

You can grab it on Hotfile via Core.

MP3: Four Tet – Angel Echoes

Also, this Bullion FACT mix is rather excellent.

What follows is four pages of my personal picks for artists I’m looking forward to hearing much more of in 2010. Featured artists include RUBIK, Baby Monster, I Am the Cosmos, Two Door Cinema Club, May 68, Sam Amidon, O Emperor, Manus Goan, Jay Electronica, MNDR, Surfer Blood, Lonelady, a host of Box Social-related artists and more. Enjoy.

1. Sleigh Bells

Practically unheard of before CMJ in October last year, Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss’ punky take on lo-fi dance-rock made an impression with many at that festival. The fact that they are currently working with Diplo gives me hope that they can turn these rough demos into something that’ll translate equally room-shaking yet less abrasive on the ears (i.e – something you can actually play in a club).

MP3: Sleigh Bells – A/B Machines

MP3: Sleigh Bells – Crown on the Ground

MP3: Sleigh Bells – Ring Ring

Expectations are high for There Is Love In You, the new Four Tet album due on Domino on January 26th. To tide you over, here’s a mix he did last month for Plastic People in London.

It includes new songs ‘Love Cry’, ‘Moth’, ‘Love Cry (Joy Orbison Remix)’ and ‘Sing’, a previously unreleased track from his forthcoming album.

A CD’s worth of material with some nice Afro highlife at the end.

After some conversations with friends about dubstep recently, I thought I’d put up some tunes from last year to serve as a catchup/beginners guide to the genre and its surrounds. I’m by no means an expert but over the next two pages you’ll find my favourites from Burial, Zomby, Joker, Peverelist, Benga, Skream, Samiyam, Darkstar, 2000F, Joy Orbison, King Midas Sound, Kode 9, Guido and more.

Please put your own must-listens in the comments.

Burial (with Four Tet)

Enigmatic dubstepper Burial and electronic experimentaller Four Tet combined on a 12″ last year which had two tracks at 18 minutes in length total. ‘Moth’ was the standout track of the two (the other being ‘Wolf Cub’). Perfectly combining Four Tet’s ability to chop up percussion samples in inventive ways with Burial’s ability to produce some growling yet almost supernatural sub-bass. (more…)

jo The BBC’s annual poll of most-promising artists arrives around again with an air of inevitability and if you follow blogs and music closely, a sense of deja vu. The longlist was released today with 15 names (with 7 of them having featured here before) and is probably a fairly well-rounded new bands list. Already established artists like Marina and the Diamonds appear with more leftfield choices like Joy Orbison. For an alternative, try Neon Gold’s own list, of which I am digging Freelance Whales at the moment.

Here’s the list: (more…)
