We promise a podcast every month in 2013. It’s our new blog resolution. Here’s the first of the year and the forty-second Podcast in the series. Aoife Mc and I talk about, and play some of my favourite tunes of the last few months. Artwork inspired by Frank B’s ‘Chain Of Fools’ as heard on this episode.
Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth shone the spotlight on his music with recent edits of Frank Ocean and his own music video for ‘Charly Wingate’. That song features a Daedelus-esque knack for brain-twisted synth lines and percussive beats buoyed by rap samples. The song is the lead track off the newly-released Last Words EP, a release which showcases Hemsworth’s skills for creating warped electronic pop music paired up with hip-hop beats.

Holy Other’s label Tri-Angle released the With U EP last week and as a result, we’ve got a few remixes floating about. Most notable for me, is this Supreme Cuts remix.
Supreme Cuts are a young duo from Chicago with two tunes on their Soundcloud ‘Amnesia’ and ‘Issues’. Their music is in the realm of experimental post-dub, vocal twisting R&B and electronics and you can hear both tracks below. As for their remix, they turn the already bombastic ‘Touch’ and extrapolate the weird vocals, the bass and hi-hats into a somehow weirder and more diverting version.
As for Holy Other, there are other remixes of the EP’s standout ‘Touch’ available via Peefork from MatthewDavid*, Blood Diamonds and Cupp Cave.
