Bonobo's playlist: The Invisible, Pional, Yussef Kamaal and more

The producer picks his current favourite jazz, LA-Ethio funk and ‘non-electronic electronic music’

Three of my favourite things collide here. The Invisible remixed by Floating Points on Ninja Tune. And not for the first time, either. The last time it happened was on Wings from the Invisible’s 2012 album Rispah. Floating Points tastefully lends his well-balanced touch to the boards on both occasions.

Best New Tracks - Pitchfork: D.R.A.M. and Erykah Badu’s “Wifi” Is a New Hallmark of Modern Love


Best New Tracks - Pitchfork: D.R.A.M. and Erykah Badu’s “Wifi” Is a New Hallmark of Modern Love

Link to Best New Tracks - Pitchfork

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 08:37 AM PDT


Readily available access to unlimited data is the lifeblood of modern relationships, but staying connected 24/7 comes at a steep price. It makes WiFi passwords, at friend's or partner's homes, feel like gestures of actual charity.

To date, D.R.A.M.'s career has been about brazenly expressing modest desires and small tokens of appreciation. On his first hit, "Cha Cha," he wanted to dance with a girl who looks likes the star of the Nickelodeon show Taina. On Chance the Rapper's Coloring Book, he reminded everyone that they are special. Alongside Lil Yachty, on "Broccoli," he expressed a newfound love of lox. "Wifi" is a highlight of D.R.A.M.'s just-released debut LP, in which he links with Erykah Badu, who famously told her friend she could not use her phone to check on her boyfriend.
D.R.A.M. sharpened his crazy-in-love lothario persona on 2015's solid Gahdamn! EP, and he fully consumes the role here. As slap-bass punctuations call back to new jack swing slow jams, his voice stretches to a husky whisper. "Do you got Wifi?" D.R.A.M. sings, and it might as well be a drunken wish to get married. By the time Badu introduces you to her apartment—with the wondrous line, "Do you like my feng shui in my living room?"—"WiFi" crescendos in emotional intensity. It become a new hallmark for modern love.

Suicide's Dream Baby Dream – the unlikely anthem of 2016

It has been covered by Bruce Springsteen and Arcade Fire, and soundtracks American Honey and new Adam Curtis documentary HyperNormalisation - but is it a song of hope or despair?

About 100 minutes into Adam Curtis’s latest documentary, HyperNormalisation, there’s a montage of movie scenes in which skyscrapers are blown up by bad guys, crumbling into themselves as people leap from flaming top-storey windows. All of these films, Curtis tells us, were made before 9/11. As the strangely prophetic scenes keep coming, Suicide’s Dream Baby Dream drones in the background.

In the context of a film convinced that we have “retreated into a dream world that allows dark and destructive forces to fester and grow outside”, Martin Rev and Alan Vega’s track seems to mock the state of blissful ignorance Curtis believes society has wrapped itself in. Dream Baby Dream is a song that hangs between hope and nihilism, and Curtis’ disaster reel embraces the latter.

John Carpenter review – thrilling electronica from Halloween director

Victoria Warehouse, Manchester
The film director and soundtrack composer rampages through a wall-shaking 90-minute set of his movie music with grisly glee

Few 68-year old horror movie directors could fill a warehouse for an evening of their music, but The Fog/Halloween director John Carpenter has been soundtracking his films for as long as he has been making them. Tonight his huge cult following have donned a ghastly array of zombie and slasher costumes for a (black) celebration of the man’s gruesome oeuvre.

It’s scarily thrilling to hear Carpenter’s classic electronic and synth-rock soundtracks played pulverisingly loud, by a granite-hard band including the director, his son and godson, as scenes from the films prompt whoops of recognition.

Tove Lo: Lady Wood review – a hard sell for girl power

The Swedish star tells it like it is in a classy second album of sex, drugs and honesty that lacks the commercial catnip of its predecessor

Pushing female agency is a big concern for Tove Lo, the pop singer attempting to consolidate the international multi-platinum success of her 2014 debut, Queen of the Clouds, with a follow-up. Lady Wood here refers not to the parliamentary constituency in greater Birmingham but to a female version of a hard-on, to girls having “balls”. Lo seeks to fulfil that second-album recipe for success: more of the same, but different.

Shooting to fame on the back of a drug-fuelled tune called Habits (Stay High), which describes going on a bender to numb a broken heart, the 29-year-old Tove Lo (Swedes say it a bit like Tuvalu, the Pacific island nation) found her Scandinavian matter-of-factness much queried in the months that followed. Lady Wood remains committed to candour, opening with the sound of a match-strike and an inhale. The title track finds Lo owning her lust. “You give me lady wood,” she mewls friskily while punchy club sounds percolate around her.

SLUGGERS – Anthem EP

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

unnamed

So SLUGGERS just dropped a scary as tech-house EP just in time for Halloween.  I just cruised through this bad boy and there are definitely some big tunes in it.  Whether you’re partying or trick-or-treating this weekend, get your techno fix either way.

“The EP kicks off with a skull-rattling title track punctuated by persistent drums and breathy hi-hats, leading into the sinister to the droning vibes of “Doses” followed by “M1,” with it’s wailing organ sounds and catchy beat. With “SDFMIA” and “So Much Love” wrapping up the collection, Miami nightlife has never sounded so wonderfully dark.”

[GDD™ PREMIERE] Neil Parkes – Peil Narkes (Out Nov. 4 Via Hot Creations)

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

neilparkes

Hot Jams is a compilation from Hot Creations that showcases some of the up and coming talent from the ever bourgeoning label. The four track release is a club thumping EP with an exemplary original production from UK based, Neil Parkes. Wonkily titled, “Peil Narkes,” Neil Parkes delivers a dance floor destroyer in instrumental form. The tune simmers for the first three minutes as a walloping kick and sizzling hi-hat lay way for intermittent synth stabs and a discordant break down to build anticipation. The only release of the tune hits at the 3:35 mark where a neural synth symphony fires on all cylinders carrying you through until the end of the production. Set to be released November 4th via Hot Creations, the compilation features Lee Walker, Pete Dorling, and Greeko, and is available to pre-order HERE.

Crooked Man: 'Could you see Phil Oakey with a window round?'

Dance pioneer Richard Barratt links Sheffield’s musical past with its present. With a new album out on James Murphy’s DFA Records, he recalls how the city’s club scene began, and admits he always thought he made pop music

There’s something pleasing about a gruff, 53-year-old Yorkshire dad, long finished with any involvement with discotheques, having made one of the freshest club music albums of the year. But Richard Barratt has dance in his blood. He was one of the first DJs to play house in the UK, and has worked with Sheffield’s best talent, from Cabaret Voltaire through Jarvis Cocker and Róisín Murphy to Toddla T. Although his response is a crisp: “Good God, no,” when asked if he still has any interest in DJing or seeing the reaction to his own music in the clubs, and although it’s 15 years since he was last in the public eye with his band the All-Seeing I, he has never stopped making glorious electronic disco records – culminating in the new collection of his work as Crooked Man for James Murphy’s DFA Records.

[Many of us] managed to turn our layabout fantasies into actual jobs. Not sure how we’d fit back into real life now

Walking on a Dream redux: Empire of the Sun on the ad that changed their lives

With an eight-year-old single revived and a new album, the Australian electronic duo are being rewarded for positive thoughts

On YouTube, views of the Honda Civic advertisement first televised in January are ticking towards 200,000. “Song iz awesome,” reads one comment. “Hey what is that song called and who is it by I like that song,” reads another.

A commercially placed song, known as a “sync”, is an increasingly legitimate way for musicians to make a buck in an industry where sources of cold hard cash, at least for artists, is scarcer than ever. The success of the Honda sync was surprising though because the track that so enraptured viewers was Walking on a Dream by Australian pop duo Empire of the Sun, and it is eight years old.

Unsound festival review – a shared spirit of internationalist musical exploration

Various venues, Kraków, Poland
A celebration of experimental music from around the world celebrates differences as well as connections – even if everyone there dresses in black

If, per Theresa May, being a citizen of the world is being a citizen of nowhere, what does that mean for music, which is more globally interconnected than ever? Artists collaborate via email, rack up the air miles, and can be heavily influenced by a tiny scene on the other side of the world. At the same time, you can never rip up your roots entirely. The 14th edition of Unsound festival washes these conundrums down with gallons of of bison grass vodka.

The Kraków event follows recent spinoff festivals in Russia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, with the organisers setting up collaborations between European musicians and locals, some of whom are in tow here. The overarching theme is Dislocation, whether it’s artists “dislocated” from their homes and scenes, or – come Monday morning, after four days and nights of cutting-edge electronics – punters dislocated from the very fabric of reality.

Marc Almond: ‘I’ve had the chance to be subversive in the mainstream’

With a career-spanning 10-album box set coming out, the Soft Cell star reflects on the 80s, Brexit and his fading love affair with London

In the late 1660s, after the Great Fire, building began on land then known to Londoners as Henry VIII’s Royal Park. It used to be fields around there, save for a few cottages. The area was primed to be one of London’s grandest neighbourhoods, one of its future Marylebones or Mayfairs. A few decades later, the Huguenots arrived and built a church. Italians, Greeks and Algerians followed, setting up small businesses, cafes and restaurants. Then came the small theatres and the music halls, the poets and the performers, the prostitutes and the pop stars.

“Soho was this mythical place where anything went on, that collected outsiders, full of people that didn’t really fit in anywhere else.” On a muggy autumn afternoon at the private members’ club Soho House, Marc Almond, here to discuss his new 10-album career retrospective box set, is describing the place that made him who he was in the late 20th century. “A friend of mine, a ballet dancer, lived here in the late 70s, opposite a casino, and there were neons in the windows and the police coming every night arresting people. And I thought: this is where I want to be. This is where I’m meant to be.”

Gay men now have to be chiselled and have a bit of Botox – where does the outsider fit in?

HyperNormalisation playlist: Pye Corner Audio, worriedaboutsatan and more

Adam Curtis’s music supervisor, Gavin Miller, shares some the arpeggiated synths and creepy atmospherics that score Curtis’s latest documentary

I’m in a band called worriedaboutsatan, and ended up working with Adam Curtis after I approached him about five years ago to do an interview, primarily about the use of music in his films. I’d been watching them for years, and was intrigued by how he’d use snippets of really amazing stuff – Nine Inch Nails, Burial, Brian Eno and Ennio Morricone, all jostling for room over harrowing images of war and degeneration.

I spoke to him on the phone and wrote up the piece. After that we just kind of kept in touch. He’s a really nice guy and very accommodating to a squealing fanboy like myself. He’s also very up on new music, and into a lot of obscure stuff. He listens to a lot of music, but I think he gets hungry for new sounds quite easily. My job as music supervisor was basically to send him playlists of stuff I thought would fit in his films. It took me a while to get the hang of it, and the early ones I sent him were full of music that, looking back, would not have worked in a million years. He later told me that the only people who ever sent him music were me and Martin Jenkins, AKA Pye Corner Audio, whose haunting synthscapes crop up quite often in Curtis’s films too.

Burial – 10 of the best

The Banksy of future garage, whose two-step compositions soundtracked London’s darker sides, continues to shape-shift across collaborations and genres

The best way to begin a career is to set up an instant connection with the listener, and then do something else: create some sort of unique context for your music. Burial’s South London Boroughs, released on Hyperdub in 2005, did that effortlessly. It was a sonic painting of south London at night, crafted with spray-cans of a dark two-step beat, wonky synths and his signature bass. It was like a Banksy had suddenly appeared. Next to nothing was known about Burial except for where he came from, and he marked his territory by inviting us to ride through the dark streets of south London’s outer boroughs with beats alone.

Agnes Obel: 'It's called a Trautonium – and it can electrocute people!'

Denmark’s Agnes Obel takes music where it has never gone before, layering 250 tracks on top of each other, and duetting with a male cyborg version of herself. Where does it all come from?

It’s mid-afternoon and a surprise heatwave is weighing heavily in the Victorian corridors and stairwells of Hoxton Hall. Heading to a cool room in the attic of the London venue is the woman playing her new record here tonight: a pale-eyed Dane who’s already had two platinum-selling albums across mainland Europe.

Her third, Citizen of Glass, isn’t your typical floor-filler. It begins with shivering, gothic violins, eerie cello pizzicato, and the trembling horror of a replica 1920s synthesiser called a Trautonium. “It’s huge and it can electrocute people,” says Agnes Obel, settling down on a chair in a tiny, shabby dressing room. “Strangely we haven’t brought it tonight.”

These days our lives are all open and transparent – like we're made of glass

Powell: Sport review – lost in discord

(XL)

The underground electronic producer Powell has caught some sun in the past year with a couple of playful/terrifying singles, as well as a commendable willingness to butt heads with his heroes like the dance-despising Nirvana producer Steve Albini. Sadly, the aggressive discordance of Powell’s kitsch-glitch aesthetic drags horribly on this debut. It’s all treble, no bass, all foreplay with no follow-through. If only it had more of the intensity of the anti-faker spoken-word track Skype, or Jonny’s antic joy, which effectively upcycles dusty gothic riffery. Sport sounds lost, neither serious enough for IDM connoisseurs, nor crass enough for the EDM mob, and lacks the otherworldly melodies of pioneers like Gold Panda or Nicolas Jaar.

Dancing in the dark: the growing trend of gigs with the lights off

Events like Pitch Black Playback are taking music into the shadows, and bringing the shared experience back to live performance

Jamie Lidell is purring words of welcome in our ears, but we can’t see him. We can’t see much, because we’re all wearing blindfolds emblazoned with the words “Pitch Black Playback”. Lidell isn’t actually here but the Transatlantic soul artist has chosen to unveil his latest album, Building A Beginning, at this lights-off event. The atmosphere shifts in the shadows, as his new songs start playing; the concrete bunker bar at Shoreditch’s Ace Hotel even feels warmer. Basslines go deeper in the dark; voices make you tingle; the silences hit you harder.

RÜFÜS – Innerbloom (Lane 8 Remix)

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

artworks-000187876386-je0mpb-t500x500

RUFUS’s 2016 album “Bloom” has catapulted the group into superstardom.  It’s tough to nail down a crowning track, but for me it has to be Innerbloom.  The original 10+ minute odyssey is incredibly stunning, and Lane 8 just put an amazing touch in it.  More subdued in nature, this edition showcases the softer elements of the track.   Stream it now.

“Lane 8 proved to be a perfect tap for the ‘Innerbloom’ remix package, returning to the fold with the peak time display of heart-wrenching mastery that has made his singular take on electronic music a standout over the last few years. By adding rolling percussion and a fresh flowing lead, Lane 8 has transformed the original into an anthem fit for divine moments of elevated dance floor sensation.”

Jamie Lidell: Building a Beginning review – swoonworthy soul-pop

(Jajulin Records)


As you listen to Jamie Lidell’s hopelessly romantic new soul-pop LP, petals fall from the sky, squirrels flirt, and sparrows follow you around with a heart-strewn banner in their beaks. Lidell wrote the lyrics with his wife, and they’re full of earnest declarations of how valuable their bond is. Perhaps they’d make nauseating dinner party guests, but the songwriting is so comfortably strong and the production so toasty that you’re soon swooning along with them.

Powell: Sport review – joyfully oddball electronic noise

(XL)

Powell is the Mr Robot of electronica, hacking its code to create an idiosyncratic style that’s truly off-grid. On his debut album, bizarre elements that shouldn’t make sense – looped bass guitar thrums, Skype calls, 8-bit bloops, static and distortion – knot together to make wilfully obstreperous tunes, coming as much from ATP-era noise-rock (he sampled Nirvana producer and Big Black member Steve Albini, much to Albini’s chagrin) as they do computer wizardry. Here, melody takes a backseat to punk drums and bass. On first listen, Powell’s rugged rhythms could feel clunky but in fact they tug you into unruly grooves; his restless takes on electroclash (the deadpan Frankie), post-punk (the Mark E Smith-sampling Junk), punk-funk (Plastic) and Lightning Bolt by way of Peaches (Jonny) are so playful you can sense the glint in his eye as he mangles them together. At 14 songs it’s long, and tracks like Mad Love drag compared to the rip-roaring Jonny, but then Sport is an album of extremes. When music is as joyfully oddball as this, it’s worth the hurdles.

Jamie Lidell: 'I’m glad I didn’t lock myself into being this crazy electronic dude'

He started out as a Prince fanboy with a penchant for circuit bending, but ended up an unlikely pop star. With a new record all about his new family and content small-town life in Nashville, is this the real Jamie Lidell?

“I don’t trust anyone who’s not a nerd,” says Jamie Lidell. “If you’re not really a nerd then you’re not really into something.” Anyone who saw Lidell’s live show a decade ago wouldn’t confuse him for a man who wasn’t into what he was doing. Back in 2005 Lidell toured the UK in a jacket made out of VHS tape and a helmet with a camera strapped to his head, alongside an audio visual sidekick by the name of Pablo Fiasco.

It was a ramshackle yet captivating live show that stood out on a bill he shared with the London Sinfonietta and fellow Warp records signee Squarepusher and felt more like a cyberpunk circus act than a conventional gig. “It was a cool chance for me and my visual guy to cause a ruckus because everyone was very formal and we were super messy,” says Lidell. The organised chaos, partly enabled by a loop programme he developed himself, gave Lidell a new audience and brought his vision of nerd Nirvana to venues like London’s Royal Festival Hall.

Helado Negro: 'I'm trying to make music I can grow old with'

Young, Latin and proud, the Brooklyn-based musician writes about insecurity and self-discovery – an oasis of contemplation amid anti-immigrant rhetoric

Roberto Carlos Lange – known as Helado Negro – is an Ecuadorian American artist with an unprecedented sound. His music is a soothing, dreamlike collage of live and unorthodox instruments, and the 36-year-old musician uses his voice in so many absorbing ways, it almost feels as if you’re not listening to a person. “I like to utilize my voice as a new instrument,” says Lange, who is based in Brooklyn. “And when you hear songs in Spanish, for example, there are so many beautiful, flowery and exaggerated words that you can really mess with and they end up sounding like something else.”

Having grown up in south Florida as a first generation American with Ecuadorian parents, Lange makes music deeply connected to his roots and bicultural identity. In 2015’s Young, Latin and Proud, he code-switches between English and Spanish, calling for unity among America’s Latino community through understanding who we are and appreciating those who came before us.

Mofo 2017: Peaches to bring her one-woman Jesus Christ Superstar

More than 200 artists from a dozen countries will feature in the Hobart summer festival, including Z-Trip, Mike Patton and Maynard Keenan

More than 200 artists from a dozen countries as far-flung as Azerbaijan will feature in the five-day festival in Hobart. (Mona Foma is an acronym for Museum of Old and New Art: Festival of Music and Art, and is often further shortened to Mofo.)

[STREAM] Sebastian Carter – City Lights EP

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

Back in August, the multi-instrumentalist Sebastian Carter announced his debut EP, City Lights, with the first single, “Shallow Waters,” and since then, he has seen a wealth of support from names like Jamie Jones, Lane 8, Tensnake, and more. This is particularly exciting for Sebastian as he has been working diligently on crafting a new artistic direction, while finishing up school at The Modern Music Institute in Brighton. His City Lights EP shows him exploring ethereal electronic soundscapes embellished by organic live instrumentation, vocals from Julia Church, Atonal, and Tosca Singer, as well as dynamic rhythms, ranging from house to downtempo and everything in between. As a whole, the release is a soulful and eclectic body of work that reflects his artistic authenticity, as he seems to draw upon a pool of UK-centric influences to cultivate his own experimental, genre-bending style that truly sets him apart from the rest. Enjoy the release above and buy/stream the EP here!

Cult heroes: Optimo (Espacio) – the club night that defied expectation and defined a generation

Keith McIvor and Jonnie Wilkes ran Optimo in Glasgow for well over a decade and influenced dance music experimentation way beyond the city

The 2010 general election ended 13 years of Labour government. And as Gordon Brown saw out his last days at No 10, another 13-year reign was coming to an end in Glasgow.

Since 1997, the club night Optimo (Espacio) had defined the musical landscape of Glasgow, and its influence spread far beyond the city. It exerted its own pull on flash-in-the-pan genres such as electroclash and punk-funk, before seeing them off; its wild and enduringly knowledgable eclecticism melded techno, electro, no-wave, post-punk, Afrobeat, psych-rock, cleverly curated pop classics and more. The final night fell on the last Sunday in April, just before the election; one fan in Glasgow caught the zeitgeist when he altered a David Cameron campaign poster to read: “Optimo (Espacio) 1997-2010: Getting out before the Tories get in.”

Music you missed: from Rebel Yell to Jordan Ireland's mysterious solo album

Ten of the best Australian LPs, side projects and underground releases that might have passed you by in July, August and September

Are Australian solo artists making the best music in 2016? With seven solo musicians and one duo listed here, I could certainly argue the case. That said, solo artists have always dominated my music collection; they are less swayed by prevailing trends and their music ages better.

Over the past year it’s become clear that women are making the most interesting and idiosyncratic club music. Holy Balm and Elisabeth Dixon have great new albums, Chiara Kickdrum is featured on the Domestic Documents series of local “electronic abstraction”, and the live sets I’ve seen recently from LA Suffocated, WDK, Lucy Cliché and Workshop have been truly excellent too.

Kate Tempest: Let Them Eat Chaos review – pop, poetry and politics collide

Performance poetry might still be a niche concern, but Kate Tempest now gets to do hers on primetime TV – and deservedly so

Related: The Bricks That Built the Houses by Kate Tempest review – daring and vivid

She has been garlanded by everyone from the compilers of the Mercury shortlist to the judges of the Poetry Society’s Ted Hughes prize, but on paper at least, Kate Tempest’s new album still seems like a tough sell. It’s a 48-minute long hip-hop-influenced performance poem about the alienated lives of the residents of one south London street, set to a variety of post-dubstep bass music. It opens with an invocation of Mother Earth and ends with a plea for humanity to, as Primal Scream once had it, come together as one. In between, it variously takes aim at capitalism, gentrification, celebrity culture, political corruption and global warming (“the water is rising, the elephants and polar bears are dying”). There is a joke about David Cameron having it off with a pig’s head. It’s somehow redolent of the kind of well-meaning event you see advertised at a local arts centre and make a mental note to avoid at all costs – partly because it seems so painfully earnest, and partly because at least half the audience seems likely to consist of recalcitrant 14-year-olds dragged there by an English teacher who insists pupils call him by his first name and says things like “Siegfried Sassoon was the Lil’ Wayne of his day”.

Somersault – Stampede EP (Upon Access)

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

SomersaultEP

Upon Access was only founded this year but already it is a label with a reputation for putting out great new music. Curated by Australian producer and DJ Made in Paris, the label’s next release is from brand new singing Somersault. He is a young producer who has come a long way from working as a funk guitarist to producing music played on international festival stages and securing hits in the Beatport Top 100.

Stampede goes first and is a slick and spacious deep tech cut with a writing synth line that snakes about above smooth drums. Smeared pads add real scale to the cut and help suck you right in to the midst of the spaced out groove. Finishing it off in style are some harmonious melodies that stick long in the brain. On the flip you’ll find It’s Erotic, another sensual groove that is rooted in deep and rubbery drums. This one has more textured synths and heavenly pads all adding up to a roomy tune that will make your hairs stand on end thanks to its subtly epic intentions. Somersault is sure to have secured another hit here with another fine release. The EP is already supported from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Oliver Schories, Sossa, DJ Karotte and more. Listen below!

Jean-Michel Jarre – 10 of the best

With the release of the final album of his Oxygène trilogy planned for December, it’s time to list 10 of the best of the electronic composer’s oevre

Jean-Michel André Jarre learned his trade under the giants of musical abstraction, Pierre Schaeffer, Pierre Henry and Karlheinz Stockhausen, but it was when he decided to pepper his avant garde musings with strong flourishes of melody that things started to happen for him. The Lyon-born musician had played guitar in a couple of bands, and released two electronic albums under his own name to little fanfare (including the soundtrack to the 1973 film Les Granges Brûlées). It must have been a surprise then, when a third album recorded at home with an eight-track and some analogue synthesisers – Oxygène – made him an huge star shortly after it was released internationally in 1977 [it came out in France in December 1976]. Oxygène went on to sell 14m copies, a remarkable feat when one considers some of the tracks are impressionistic experiments, full of space noise and static. In fact, Jarre has shifted something in the region of 80m albums across his career, more than, say, Duran Duran, which is quite an achievement for a French solo artist who doesn’t sing. If he has a signature tune, then it has to be Oxygène (Part IV) – an instantly recognisable hook that hitches a ride on a bossa nova beat in order to explore the galaxies.
