[FREE DOWNLOAD] Wood Holly – Love That We Made

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

Wood Holly was responsible for one of the livest bootleg packs I have ever heard, so I’m always keen to see what he’s got in the pipelines.  His latest is shockingly more on the dark side of things.  Really haunting vocals, scratchy percussion and cool synths blanket the listener before that absolute vortex of a bass arrangement steals your soul.  Can’t believe he’s giving this one away for free via Perfect Driver Records, grab it right now! Thanks Wood Holly!

Slaptop – Remember

artworks-000124834369-mzatxy-t500x500

The last time we heard from Slaptop, it was from a sweet little dancey number called “Away.”  Now, our homie is back with another killer called “Remember.”  First thing that jumps out at me here are the super smooth vocals.  Just sing-alongy and indie enough to fit the drop.  All jokes aside, the business end of this track contains a mean bassline and some reallly nice, airy synth work.  Look out for them horns too. Coming in hot!!!

So basically, Draper makes some really solid future tunes.  His latest release on Monstercat is called “On You” featuring Alby Hobbs.  This one is drenched in romantic feels, screaming synth work, and some cool bass style.  You can always expect this kind of quality from Monstercat, props to them for linking up with Draper for the release.  Without any further ado, let this slow burner float you right on into the weekend.

WAX MOTIF FINALLY DROPS ‘KRUSH GROOVE’ ON MAD DECENT

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

kg460

Australian producer Danny Chien aka Wax Motif boasts a unique production style and fresh mixing skills that have kept this rising artist in high demand. His Mad Decent debut comes to us in the form of the much anticipated “Krush Groove,” the first single off of his brand new True Joy EP, dropping in August. The track breaks down into a war-cry of chords before building back up into an explosive synth lead and hard hitting low end, making for a colossal bass driven future house anthem. The forthcoming ‘True Joy EP’ also highlights Wax Motif’s perfected g-house sound (a movement he’s on the forefront of). Expect to hear Krush Groove roaring across the festival circuit this year, and look out for the rest of the True Joy EP in the coming weeks!

Listen to a Bonus Track From the Chemical Brothers Album


As their eighth album’s on course for number one, a bonus track from ‘Born In The Echoes’ has surfaced.

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons uploaded ‘Wo Ha’ to YouTube yesterday and what we’ve got is a bass-heavy creeper, laced with wispy, infectious synths that result in over four minutes of spooky atmospherics.

It’ll appear on the deluxe edition of the album which features Q-Tip and follows last month’s statement that EDM’s “a mad old world”.

Also, can you believe it’s been 20 years since their debut LP, ‘Exit Planet Dust’? Check out what we said about that and a load of other belters from 1995 here.

Tim Gunter Reveals New Remix of Matthew Koma’s Debut Single


On the heels of his uplifting remix of Mario’s “Let Me Love You,” Red Bull Thre3style U Champion, Tim Gunter, unveils his chilled rework of Matthew Koma’s debut single “So Fuckin’ Romantic.”

“I had the pleasure of remixing Matthew Koma’s new single “SFR.” He sent me the record a few weeks back and asked me to do my thing. I felt serious vibes from the original so I wanted to make something that was easy listening, but also knocked. The result is this chill remix perfect for staying cool this summer. Excited to release more new music this summer.” – Tim Gunter

Matthew Koma’s debut single demonstrates the realization of his signature style and showcases his multifaceted talents. “So Fuckin’ Romantic” is the next step in the evolution of Koma’s defining sound: he pairs playful verses and infectious metaphor driven choruses with deep driving anthemic rhythms.

Tim Gunter puts an amazing spin on the original with fun pop synths, rattlesnake high hats and chilled out futuristic bass.

 

Eau Claire Releases Remix of Midnight Pool Party’s “Disease”

2015 has been a breakout year for Eau Claire following recent performances in Mexico and the USA including her debut festival appearance Firefly Music Festival in June.  A few weeks ago she released her remix of Saint Motel’s ‘My Type’ that reached the # 1 most popular remixed song on Hype Machine and was released via Elektra Records. The Washington, DC based producer and DJ shows no sign of slowing down here with a brand new remix for disco and funk duo Midnight Pool Party.  Bringing in some new elements to her production, Eau Claire adds a vocoder layer to the house flavored track while infusing her signature groovy piano chord progression.  Her skills go beyond catchy chord progressions though as she masterfully layers in an addictive synth lead and bassline leaving her listeners itching for more.

From Paris with Løve: DJ Sven Hansen-Løve on the French capital’s club scene

The subject and co-writer of Eden, a new film that chronicles Paris’s exploding dance music scene through the 1990s, shares his tips on the city’s nightlife

The first parties I went to in Paris were raves in really underground places, like the party you see in the beginning of the film. They would take place in chateaux or warehouses in the suburbs. Some were put on by UK promoters looking for places after the crack down on raves in the UK. One of the first I remember was on the roof of the Pompidou Centre. They did three parties up there, which were great.

I first met electro duo Daft Punk – who were a huge part of the scene and who feature in the film – in 1993 at a massive rave called EuroDisney near Disneyland Paris. There were two big rooms: one was for techno but bigger was the garage room – a lot of people came from the UK especially for that.

Lawrence English: our relationship with sound is problematic

The founder of record label Room40 discusses the complexities of sound, Brisbane’s creative exodus and music that makes him uncomfortable

When a rat runs over Lawrence English’s foot, it’s a shock to both of us. For English, because the rat is “the size of a small cat”. For me, because I’m returned to a here and now our conversation has seen me slip from.

“I’m interested in the idea of the body as an ear,” English continues. “I want to explore the point at which our audition becomes synesthetic.”

Pachanga Boys start new label, You And Your Hippie Friends
Scissor & Thread Drop New Tailored Cuts Vol. 2 Compilation
Televisor Drops Remix of Savannah Outen’s “Boys”

 

Claptone Announces Debut Album, Charmer, Along With New Release

Elusive producer Claptone has resurfaced with the announcement of a new 13 track LP and a murky, piano clad house banger ‘Puppet Theatre’ ft. Peter, Bjorn and John’ has come along with it.

The new track which is taken from the album is a promising start to a clearly ambitious project and with previous successes already out there, this should be huge.

We’ve shown love for him in the past with his slick take on ‘I’m Aquarius’ and with a storming essential mix earlier this year – there’s every chance the album will deliver.

Signed on Different Recordings, ‘Charmer’ is available for pre-order now but fans and newcomers alike will have to wait until October 16 for the full official release.

Currently on a world tour, the golden masked crusader will feature among London’s SW14 line-up among other festivals and events where we’re sure he’ll be dropping plenty more album teasers.

Listen to the new release below with further info and pre-order details found here.

Pachanga Boys start new label, You And Your Hippie Friends

youandyourhippiefriends

Pachanga Boys have used a mini-compilation titled A Very Nice Combinado Volume Uno to launch a new label called You And Your Hippie Friends.

The duo of Superpitcher and Rebolledo founded the label as a vehicle to showcase tracks from friends that would otherwise go unreleased. Some of the selections on the record have been staples of Pachanga Boys’s DJ sets for some time, including Sebastian Bouchet’s “Captain Drag” (apparently only a handful of selectors have the file). Little-known producers Yula Hasp, Beyou, El Güero Fresa Presenta and Otto round out the wax with party-friendly cuts of their own. You And Your Hippie Friends will be Pachanga Boys’s second label project after Hippie Dance.

Tracklist
A1 Sebastien Bouchet – Captain Drag
A2 Yula Kasp – Leisure
B1 Beyou – Antimateria (Speechless Extended Version)
B2 El Guero Fresa Presenta – Convertible Ride
B3 Otto – Land From Land

A Very Nice Combinado Volume Uno is out now on You And Your Hippie Friends.

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

nangs rambo v remix

Essentially, Rambo V wanted to put his spin one of the more obscure tracks from Tame Impala’s Currents, arguably one of the best albums of the year.  He ended up going with “Nangs,” a showy synth-based track that really lends itself to the house sound.  The vocals are hauntingly sampled, seemingly dripping over the jumpy bassline like the acid-influenced cover art.  This remix continues Rambo V’s string of extremely unique remixes and original tracks, and displays his versatility as a producer.  This tune will undoubtedly be sneaking its way into many-a-poolside sets before the Summer’s end, and you can download it now for free.

Listen to New Order's Restless

The first single from Music Complete is a semi-acoustic, semi-electronic tune that glides through both euphoria and melancholy. Do you agree?

Given New Order’s latest resurrection has been littered with unexpected additions – with Brandon Flowers, Iggy Pop and Elly Jackson on vocals and the Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands and Stuart Price producing some of the tracks – you’d be fooled into assuming Music Complete was a product of creative excess.

According to its leading single, however, the Manchester group need not for frills and fanfare. Restless, a semi-acoustic, semi-electronic tune that glides through both euphoria and melancholy, witheringly assesses the desire for more stuff, more money and “a nice car, a girlfriend who’s as pretty as a star”.

The playlist: electronic – Alice Glass, Helena Hauff, PLO Man and more

This month there’s exclusive debuts from Hamburg clubland stalwart Helena Hauff and moody duo Black Rain and Shapednoise, and a return to form for a post Crystal Castles Alice Glass

Debuting exclusively here is this enormous track from Helena Hauff’s first album Discreet Desires. Known for her residency at Hamburg’s Golden Pudel club, she resurrected the liberated spirit of no-wave by blending harsh techno with synthpop, post-punk and coldwave; Hauff’s set would sound moody and even a little jaded, but confidently beckoned you from the daylight into darkness. She’s also been making a series of excellent productions, and L’Homme Mort is one of her boldest and loudest yet: snares arrive after one second, a kick drum after 15 more, and they hold a pair of synth melodies aloft throughout. It’s the album’s big crowd-pleasing centrepiece – make sure to check the whole thing out when it arrives on Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune on 4 September.

Chemical Brothers: Born in the Echoes review – a victorious racket

(Virgin EMI)

If you view pop music as a perpetual war between the Oceania, Eurasia and East Asia of guitars, dance music and hip-hop/R&B, it might appear as though dance music has won. Out there it’s all rave builds and Alton Towers bass drops, house revivals and wall-to-wall superstar DJs. Even the frat boys of the US, who for years viewed electronic music as some decadent European affectation for ambisexuals, have now succumbed to EDM.

Into this fray step the Chemical Brothers, 90s dance music titans, with their eighth studio album, their most enjoyable in years. By today’s standards – that’s brostep, Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris, Tiësto – it sounds archaic, but intentionally so. There are tracks here that still skew towards song-craft rather than the dynamics tailored to today’s attention-deficit-disordered raver. The sinister and mutating EML Ritual celebrates the semi-hobbyist makers of antique synthesizers, the long-defunct Electronic Music Laboratories. Among its intriguing noises is an acrylic skid that slides all over the beat, half DJ scratch, half analogue yelp. Taste of Honey may have a dud vocal that rhymes “honey” with “money”, but it has a terrific stereo pan of a giant bee, and a surprise guitar solo, of sorts, which sounds like Jimi Hendrix warming up.

Seven Davis Jr: Universes review – summer dance stylings built on funky foundations

(Ninja Tune)

Imagine if Prince forsook his current fetish for female-dominated hard rock in favour of showing Jamie xx how a delicious smorgasbord of summer dance styles should really be done. The results might sound something like north California-based DJ/songwriter/producer/singer Seven Davis Jr’s diverse yet cohesive debut. Constructing his own blithely funky edifice on sure foundations from George Clinton (Everybody Too Cool) to D-Train (on the Julio Bashmore-assisted Good Times), Davis Jr seems equally at home amid the brazen pop of Sunday Morning and the way more abstract 10-minute finale Welcome Back. Claiming the middle ground between D’Angelo and Four Tet was a bold move, but I think he’s pulled it off.

SoundCloud confirms paid subscription service on the way

soundcloud

SoundCloud has confirmed rumours of a forthcoming subscription service.

The streaming platform’s plan for monetization has been the subject of industry-wide speculation for months, particularly after Sony started pulling its tracks from SoundCloud. A leaked contract last month hinted at a new tiered listening system, and now SoundCloud chief technology officer Eric Wahlforss has confirmed plans to launch a paid subscription service later on in 2015, according to Tech Times. Details are scarce, but the first tier would allow listeners to explore SoundCloud ad-free and download a limited number of files, while the second tier would provide unfettered access to the entire catalogue.

ROOM8 Releases New Jam, “This Place Again” featuring Polina

ROOM8, the LA-based two-man troupe made up of producers Ezra Reich and Nic Johns, are slowly but surely serving up what promises to be one of the year’s most promising electropop EPs, due to be released in the fall.

After dropping “No Hard Feelings,” their lush no-strings break-up anthem with NYC-based singer-songwriter King Deco, the dance-pop duo returns this month with the second track off the upcoming EP: “This Place Again.”

The throbbing, ’80s-leaning club cut — which sort of sounds like a wistful Annie or Kleerup jam — features vocals from Russian-bred singer-songwriter Polina, the talented artist responsible for co-penning Sean Kingston‘s “Party All Night (Sleep All Day)” and Eminem‘s Marshall Mathers LP 2 cut “Legacy.”

“We’re in this place again / I thought that I could close the door / It only made me want it more,” the singer croons across the twinkling, nostalgic synth pulse.  Consider this one firmly stuck on repeat — much like that unshakable love affair.

 

Royal’s Cycles EP Remixed Features Jai Wolf, Hotel Garuda & More

Earlier this week Octal Sound released the Cycles Remix EP featuring four new awesome official edits of two Royal original by Hotel Garuda, Jai Wolf, Lazerdisk x Dreambeach and Catt Moop. The group re-worked “Passenger” and “Round Two,” the singles that gained the most traction off of the EP, and put their own flair on them by lacing their versions with Deep House, Future Bass and a combination of more sub-genres to make the remixes their own. This project is well worth the listen, check it out now below and have a great weekend! Enjoy.

[Premiere] Dom Dolla & Go Freek – Define (Nicky Night Time Remix)

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

nicky night time

Dom Dolla & Go Freek recently released one of the sickest tunes I’ve heard in a minute.  “Define” is a vocal backed house slammer that beautifully defines the essence of the overlying label, Sweat It Out!  Those vocal stabs and raunchy bassline just don’t quit.  One Mr. Nicky Night Time is now joining the pack of remix artists, which boasts a nice collection (Cassian and Curses thus far).  His take on the track takes full use of the vocals, chopping and sampling in a really cool way.  The bassline drags slowly behind the vocals and jumps quick on the drops.  Still can’t get enough of these vocals in either version.  Stream this bad boy from Nicky Night Time exclusively here!

drezo

I’ve been a big believer in LA’s own Drezo for quite some time now.  For many, it seems like this guy came out of the woodwork with that huge “A Milli” edit.  Nay!  Homeboy has been slinging techno heaters since I was in a Fraternity (thats a long time).  Drezo has his own very unique spin on the techno/house marriage.  Some of the harder bass sequences you’ll hear dance around stunning production.  His latest is a remix of Vice’s track “Find A Way,” and you’ll have to find a way to keep your speakers from exploding when you jam to this one.  Think underground.  Like waaay underground.  Check out the track below and grab support Drezo by grabbing it on iTunes.

Seven Davis Jr: Universes review – funk swagger and 90s house gets 21st-century makeover

(Ninja Tune)

There’s nothing new about blowing the dust off an old genre and presenting it as something fresh. For Paloma Faith, Michael Bublé and just about any recent 90s-referencing guitar band, it’s the basis of an entire career. Thankfully singer-producer Seven Davis Jr also updates the styles he is reviving, dragging a mixture of funk swagger and 90s house into the 21st century on his debut. He recalls Prince on No Worries, while Fighters tiptoes around race issues and violence over sparse percussion and deep, ooh-ing backing vocals. When he sidesteps pop-song structures altogether, as on openers Imagination and Freedom, he moves into full-blown Flying Lotus-style genre-bending territory. Sunday Morning’s bouncing bassline and looping vocal refrain warrant repeated listens, but Davis still sounds best when sticking to the instrumental mode of his thumping 2014 PARTY EP. Nonetheless, Universes is a warm, danceable introduction to an artist with plenty of sonic tricks up his sleeve.

Omar Souleyman: Bahdeni Nami review – irresistible, hyperactive electronica

(Monkeytown)

Related: Omar Souleyman – Bahdeni Nami: album stream

For those unfamiliar with the music of Omar Souleyman, the Syrian wedding singer who transformed traditional dabke music into a hyperactive electronic stomp, it’s not like much else. It’s so fast that the only appropriate way to engage with it is to wriggle your limbs. Melodies are both abrasive and ebullient, chattering endlessly like raucous birdsong. For those who are – his 2013 album, Wenu Wenu, won him many fans in electronic music circles – Bahdeni Nami will seem no less energetic, and perhaps more beguiling. Working again with Four Tet as producer (as well as Gilles Peterson and Modeselektor), the emphasis is on clarity and richness of sound. The title track is irresistible, while Enssa El Aatab’s trilling percussion propels it through its 10-minute runtime. There is even, by Souleyman’s standards, a slow jam in the shape of the melancholic Darb el Hawa. His formula may not have been reinvented, but it has been refined, and now is the time to listen.

Vinyl Williams: Into review – fitfully intriguing, with stretches of inertia

(Company)

His grandfather may be legendary film composer John Williams, but you can’t imagine Lionel “Vinyl” Williams soundtracking the travails of velociraptors or X-Wing pilots, unless it’s for a scene in a pop-up cronut bar on Tatooine. He trades in on-trend dreampop, and as the dreams of others tend to be, it’s intermittently intriguing but hard to get excited about. The strongest tracks, such as Gold Lodge, echo James Pants’ grubby funk or Stereolab’s music for moonbase lounge lizards, with their supple basslines and cooing vocals. But there are stretches of inertia. Williams uses reverb as sparkling chaff to distract from his lack of melodic ideas, and he forgets that psychedelia needs the threat of a bad trip to make the good ones really worthwhile – by the very polite motorik of Xol Rumi you’ll be reaching for some white noise to cleanse your palate.

The Chemical Brothers: Born in the Echoes review – sturdy, well made and creatively bereft

(EMI)

Related: The Chemical Brothers: ‘We’ve been together longer than a lot of marriages’

The dance duo extend the decade-long dilution of their canon with their new record, which is as technically accomplished as ever, but creatively exhausted. Perhaps trying to avoid the crass build-drop-build of EDM and trap, tracks such as Under Neon Lights (featuring a wasted St Vincent) vacillate weakly in the middle ground. Other producers, such as Barnt and Jon Hopkins, are ripped off, and old tricks are trotted out, including a Q-Tip guest spot and another almost-remake of Tomorrow Never Knows (though without Noel Gallagher’s beefy songwriting). Lyrics were never the Chems’ strong suit, but the goofy mantras of old have atrophied into pure inanity. Only EML Ritual and Beck collaboration Wide Open get close to past glories, even if the former once again trades on them, being essentially a defanged take on career high Electronic Battle Weapon 7. It’s all very sturdy and well made, much like the Mondeos it will mostly be played in.

Musician takes on the KKK with a tuba, video goes viral

When Matt Buck found out the Ku Klux Klan was planning a march on the South Carolina State House, he wanted to fight back with the weapon he knew best: his sousaphone.

Now the video of the musician's protest had gone viral, and he's being called "an American hero."

According to the Daily Beast, Buck created a lumbering two-song "Hate Concerto for Sousaphone" then marched alongside the KKK protesters.

“That first little ditty was a little marching baseline. It’s a very lethargic one that they used to use in old Looney Tunes cartoons,” he says. “It got really popular in Family Guy, when Stewie quits his day job to start following a fat guy around all day long while playing it.”

Then he moved on to a more politically charged tune, Wagner’s "Ride of the Valkyries."

"In movies, it’s used as sort of a ride of the bad guys,” he says. “In Blues Brothers, they use it to make fun of the Nazis. So I thought it’d be fun to make fun of the KKK the way they did with the Nazis in the movies.”

Buck says the video was shot by a stranger, and he had no idea it was going online — but it has now reached over four million views, and people have been showering him with praise for his unusual, but highly effective, efforts.

"I didn't really know how to show my opposition, so that was my way of doing it," Buck told the Charleston City Paper. "My goal was to embarrass them, and I think I did a little bit."

Justin Martin’s “Hello Clouds” Summer Tour Comes To LA

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

Los Angeles stand up!  The crown price of Dirtybird, Justin Martin, will be in town this weekend.  To be more specific, this Saturday the 25th at Exchange.  He’ll be alongside labelmate Ardalan, so you know the function will be moving.  Grab tickets here, read more and grab a free download of his “Function VIP” after the jump!

The Hello Clouds party will be rolling through the biggest clubs and cities across the world, with stops in North America including Output in NY,  The Fillmore in Detroit, Stereo Bar in Montreal, Exchange in Los Angeles, Trade in Miami, and many many more. Justin also tapped his favorite partner in crime, Ardalan, to help him celebrate Hello Clouds by joining in for much of the tour. This tour will be fans exclusive chance to hear new music from the record ahead of its release.

Justin Martin has been on a warpath, bringing good vibes and great music since the inception of the DIRTYBIRD crew more than a decade ago. Martin’s “The Southern Draw” EP was actually DIRTYBIRD’s first release, and tracks like “Beat That Bird“ and “Mr. Spock” have earned him a place in DIRTYBIRD lore. His acclaimed 2013 debut album “Ghettos and Gardens”, saw him reach well beyond the dancefloor earning support from the likes of NPR, SPIN, Nylon, and many more.

Since then Justin has gone on to release stellar tunes like “Steven Jello”, “Feather Fight” and “The Gettup” with DIRTYBIRD regular Eats Everything, and, most recently, the absolutely massive “Function” with his beloved partner in crime Ardalan, who will be joining Justin for much of the tour. Winning the 2015 IDMA for best House / Garage / Deep House DJ, this year is certainly shaping up to be one of Justin’s best years yet.

Greetings from the clouds! As a thank you for your support & patience while I put the finishing touches on my upcoming album, “Hello Clouds”, I have decided to give away a very special secret weapon. Since Ardalan and I first embarked on the “Hello Clouds” tour back in May, this remix has been one of the most asked about tunes from our arsenal. So without further adieu, I present to you the “Function VIP”. I hope you enjoy!

Yours Truly,

Justin Martin

First Play: the Mynabirds, Lovers Know

LISTEN

The Mynabirds
Lovers Know
Stream to July 30

These are the months that require pop albums to ebb from synth-laden confessionals and flow to handclappable rhythms, and the Mynabirds’ Laura Burhenn knows just how to create that lakeside soundtrack.

On Lovers Know, the band's third full-length, Burhenn yo-yos her heart from all-consuming love ("I'd walk through hell for just one kiss / I'd give everything I have for a minute more of this," on "All My Heart") to the downslide of dissolution ("You say you’re a believer, but you don’t have any faith, not even in me," on "Believer"). On the track "Velveteen," her voice is a Lana Del Rey level of fatalistic; she sings, "Baby, go easy on me, I’m fragile as fragile can be," but it doesn’t sound like she’d ever break. No matter the track, Lovers Know feels hazy and perfectly paced.

The album was produced by Bradley Hanan Carter and recorded in four different places over a year: L.A., Joshua Tree, Nashville and Auckland, New Zealand. Burhenn wrote it after touring with the Postal Service in 2013 and taking a year off to travel, eventually landing in L.A. to put the album together.

The result is a shiny pop record of the heart; an album for all the summer lovers.

Lovers Know is available via Saddle Creek. Pre-order it here.

Tracklist

1. "All My Heart"
2. "Believer"
3. "Semantics"
4. "Say Something"
5. "Orion"
6. "Velveteen"
7. "Shake Your Head Yes"
8. "Wildfire"
9. "Omaha"
10. "One Foot"
11. "Hanged Man"

Pharrell Williams releases visually striking, thought-provoking video for ‘Freedom’

The jazz-infused single is all about liberation — but in the just-released video for his new single "Freedom," Pharrell Williams explores many of the places where freedom is stifled.

Slave camps, sweatshops, and oppressive regimes are the focus of the video, which recreates many of the most iconic photographs and videos of the past century, from famed National Geographic photos to viral YouTube clips.

At the other end of spectrum there are images of freedom, from horses stampeding to plants opening to birds soaring — as well as stunning images of Earth from space.

The video was directed by Paul Hunter, who has worked with music stars from Snoop Dogg to Britney Spears, and from Michael Jackson to Marilyn Manson.

We’re lucky enough to premiere the collab from Smalltown DJs (Fools Gold, Main Course), Christian Martin (Dirtybird) & Sabo (Sol Selectas) called ‘Sandia’. The result is a jackin ghetto tech monster – riding a rolling bassline with bells and whistles dancing all the way through. Here’s what the boys had to say about it:

“This collaboration was written in a Ford F150 on the Mountain Magic Tour as we drove through the hills & forests of interior BC. A “Car-llabo”. Mountain Magic is a snowboard & dj tour we do every winter in Western Canada. We were testing the tunes at each show & tweaking the sessions as we drove from town to town, so we really feel like they are an awesome representation of the times we had on MM 2015.”

Dieter Moebius obituary

Musician and composer who with his band Cluster was a pioneer of ‘krautrock’

Though born in Switzerland, Dieter Moebius, who has died aged 71, was destined to become renowned as one of the pioneers of so-called krautrock. A talented graphic artist as well as a versatile experimental musician, Moebius shared the restlessness of many of his contemporaries in divided postwar Germany, and helped to create a new musical genre, largely shaped by the development of electronic instruments and synthesizers, through which to express it.

It was while he was living in Berlin in the late 1960s that he met Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Conrad Schnitzler – founders of the art and music collective the Zodiak Free Arts Lab – with whom he formed the band Kluster. In 1971, following Schnitzler’s departure, Kluster became Cluster and – notwithstanding several temporary retirements – continued to record and perform live until 2010. In the mid-1970s, Moebius and Roedelius teamed up with Michael Rother of the band Neu! to form Harmonia, who made three studio albums including Tracks and Traces (1976), featuring Brian Eno.

Dieter Moebius – five classic recordings

The great pioneer of German experimental music died earlier this week – here are some of the tracks that proved how far ahead of the pack he was

Dieter Moebius, who died of cancer on Monday at age 71, was one of the most innovative musicians and composers of our time. He was best known as being half of the great “Krautrock” group Cluster and a third of Harmonia, but his immensely varied and voluminous output spanned inventive collaborations with the late legendary producer Conny Plank, Guru Guru drummer Mani Neumeier, the great musician Asmus Tietchens, and many more. Above all, Moebius’s approach to making music was relentlessly individualistic. “I was more of the ‘flippy’ one,” he joked when I interviewed him for Frieze in 2012. “Still am. That works a lot with rhythms. ‘Flippy’, that’s German. I guess it means crazy or something.” Here are five great moments from his career.

Chvrches, Kacey Musgraves, Born Ruffians, more: songs you need to hear this week

Each week, staff from CBC Music, Radio 2, 3 and CBC regions across the country collect songs they just can't get out of their heads, and make a case for why you should listen, too. Press play below and discover new songs for your listening list.

Let us know in the comments or via @CBCMusic what catches your ear, or if you have a new song you just can't stop playing.



Chvrches, 'Leave a Trace'

Get ready to leave this one on repeat for the week. Scottish synth-pop trio Chvrches announced their forthcoming album, Every Open Eye (due in September), with the release of hypnotic lead single "Leave a Trace," which vocalist Lauren Mayberry described to Pitchfork as "the nastiest, snidest tune" on the record. But this isn't your typical sneering breakup song: it's an upbeat, almost hopeful soundtrack to that dreaded impasse that follows a relationship's gruelling end. Even wrenching lyrics like "you talk far too much for someone so unkind" sound optimistic, set against Chvrches' catchy beats. That's some slick pop skill you won't be able to get out of your head.

Kacey Musgraves, 'Pageant Material'

Kacey Musgraves isn't your typical country singer. I mean, when you look at her she could be another Carrie Underwood: young, good-looking, standing onstage with cowboy boots and a guitar. But that's only at the surface. When you listen to her music, you hear something more subversive — especially by Nashville standards. Musgraves sings songs not about standing by your man, but instead about having multiple lovers; not about a tear in your beer, but about being, as she describes it, “higher than my hair.” It all culminates in an album title that says it pretty much straight-up: Pageant Material.

But I don't want you to think that Musgraves is defined by what she is not. She is also a remarkable songwriter with a gift for melody and, while she's challenging conventions of country music, she still makes you feel like she's on your side. Even if country isn't your thing, you’ll still love Musgraves talking about how she ain't pageant material.

Knife Pleats, 'Terrible'

Rose Melberg's voice is the feeling of holding hands for the first time with your first crush. It's dreamy and soft, like stepping inside a cloud. That hint of childlike wonder is like a spoonful of sugar helping the medicine go down, so even in the lyrically darkest places, like this track from her new Vancouver-based project Knife Pleats, there's a dance party happening amidst the devastation.

Hairy Holler, 'St. James Infirmary Blues'

Ontario's Hairy Holler is worshipping at the gypsy punk altar popularized by Gogol Bordello, and doing a hell of a job of it. This is sweaty, klezmer-infused punk rock of the highest degree. Well worth a listen.

Born Ruffians, 'We Made It'

The brand new track from Born Ruffians starts off simple enough, with a finger-picked guitar lick, some drums and frontman Luke Lalonde singing, "Got a deal, signed a deal, quick. I didn't need it." But this being Born Ruffians, who prefer to not keep anything too simple, by the time the chorus kicks in the song is a spastic, full-blown eruption brimming with energy and joy and uncontrollable yells. And then just like that, it's back to where it all started as the four-piece recounts what it's like to "fake it, until you make it" in the music business. Born Ruffians' new LP, Ruff, is set for release Oct. 2.

Adrianne Pieczonka and Brian Zeger, 'Rote Rosen,' WoO. 76, by Richard Strauss

While Canadian soprano Adrianne Pieczonka is spending the summer in Europe, singing in a Bavarian State Opera production of Strauss's Elektra and a Salzburg Festival production of Beethoven's Fidelio, Delos has released a new album of Lieder by Strauss and Wagner featuring Pieczonka with pianist Brian Zeger. It's a nice reminder that singers with big, dramatic voices, accustomed to riding a Wagnerian orchestra, can also be perfectly suited to recital repertoire. She and pianist Zeger have great complicity throughout, especially in Strauss's "Rote Rosen" ("Red Roses") which opens the album. Pieczonka sings it with restraint and careful attention to the text, with Zeger magically completing her thoughts. Perfect! — Robert Rowat (@rkhr)

Lauv, 'Reforget'

Earlier this year, New York’s Ari Leff released his debut track, "The Other," under the moniker Lauv, and we had it on repeat for weeks (full disclosure: still often on repeat). "Reforget" is his brand new second track, and it's a catchy dose of synth-y R&B that we won't soon be turning off. Here’s hoping Leff’s debut EP comes sooner rather than later this year.

Little India, 'Oola'

This is one of the catchiest electro indie-pop jams of the last year, and thanks to a new music video — which is a Pantone lover's dream come true — it may finally get the attention it deserves. A dynamic and danceable track with a bit of a dark heart, which is just the way I like my summer songs. — AW
