To mark his new album, Everliving, the former Fila Brazilia man has produced a special mix for us …

Steve Cobby has been making music for a quarter of a century now – as half of Fila Brazilia, as a solo artist, writer, remixer and producer with artists such as Radiohead, Busta Rhymes, Simple Minds and Greg Dulli. Now he’s got a new album, called Everliving (which you can buy here).

To mark Everliving – a collection of tracks that capture melancholy and warmth in equal measure (“A definitive emotional statement that dispenses with song format,” according to the writer John McCready) – he’s put together a special mix for the Guardian, with nearly two hours of music featuring Cobby himself as well as his mixes of artists including Jon Kennedy, Anchorsong, Hawke, Flash Atkins and Tricky D.

[Album Review] Hot Chip Cruises With “Why Make Sense”

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty


British indietronica collective Hot Chip just released their sixth album.  This one is bound to suck.. right?  Flip that around baby, this album is one of the hottest tickets of the musical year.  Quirky-yet-dancy is the name of the game, and Alexis Taylor will carry you lightly through the tracklisting with his insightfully charming whines.  Read more, won’t you?

The deep, warm synths in the opening track “Huarache Lights” ensure you that everything is going to be okay.  An awesome array of synth sounds crecendo throughout, but keep coming back to this pounding foundation.  Somewhat dystopic thoughts can be inferred from the lyrics.  I mean, yeah, they’re getting old.

Hey look more super slick synth in “Love Is The Future.”  The falsetto is soulful, and the percussion is super fun.  You’ll be inexplicably delighted with a juxtaposed rap verse after the first choral break.  Still can’t shake the undertones of the robotic, automated, dystopic vox samples throughout.

An off-canter 4 count immediately sets “Started Right” apart from the first tracks of the album.  Just devastating vocal layering on this track, I dare you not to start grooving when the strings start getting plucked in the first chorus.  Again I’m so drawn to the warmth of the synth work.  My favorite line: “You make my heart feel like it’s my brain.”  Poetic AND funky.

“White Wine & Fried Chicken” is your slowburner from the album.  Despite it’s promises to be the perfect marriage of Happy Madison comedy and cuisine, this is the track I’ve had on repeat.  “Dark Night” is too smooth, the melody is just too good.  The progression of the chorus is so dance-able it’s hard to put into words.

Get your house fix with “Need You Now.”  Almost Caribou-like vibes flow throughout this one.  The vocal samples are so simple but so emotional, everything a great deep house track needs.  The range of styles of this album is truly fantastic.

The last and title track of “Why Make Sense?” really kind of brings meaning to the project title.  Taking a complete left turn from the lane they were cruising in, they introduce some harsher and heavier sounds.  The vocals remain smooth, but they’re engulfed by some really hellish synths.  In a good way, doe.

Go buy their album on iTunes.  Or vinyl you groovey groover.

Future Classic at 10: from Flume to Faker, the Aussie label that could

Entire ecosystems of microglitchwitchhouse have come and gone in the decade this Sydney-based label has been putting out its precise, danceable electronica

“Whenever a friend succeeds, a little something in me dies.” Gore Vidal’s vicious quip contains an essential human truth and yet whenever I reflect on the rise of Future Classic, a label set up by people I very much consider friends, it does not apply.

The Australian electronic music label was set up by Nathan McLay and his wife Jay Ryves in 2004 and they were swiftly joined by Chad Gillard soon after. Around this time Nathan was also setting up the online shop for indie-outfit Inertia as I was sitting next to him busily setting up and running their touring division.

Major Lazer: Peace Is the Mission review – Diplo and co have lost their charm

(Because Music)

Related: Major Lazer's long-awaited cartoon premieres in April

What began as a sexy, fun-filled splicing of genres under the identity of a cartoon military general has, by this third instalment, lost most of its charm. The idea behind Major Lazer, the brainchild of US producer Diplo, was to bring American stars to Jamaica, where they would get in a studio with local talent, consume local produce and create a fusion of reggae and electronic styles. The first album, Guns Don’t Kill People … Lazers Do, not only held good on the promise but also displayed a quirky sense of humour and produced stompers such as Hold the Line and Pon de Floor. Sadly, Peace Is the Mission lacks most of this stuff. The recipe is now essentially the same as any EDM album, the genre with which Diplo is closely associated, with guest stars on top and the odd dubby arpeggio underneath. Roll da Bass, Blaze Up the Fire and Too Original are the key tracks – each with buggy basslines that could double as air-raid sirens. This sound is now not only jaded – though still remarkably popular – but its ubiquity serves as a reminder of how sights have lowered since Major Lazer was first conceived.

Jam City – 'Music is a place for freaks'

There has always been – and still is – an element of transgressive politics to dance music, says the maker of one of this year’s most acclaimed albums

From the beginning, Jack Latham was determined that the politics of his second album as Jam City would not pass people by. A short polemic written by the 26-year-old to announce Dream a Garden begins: “No hope, no future, a constant war raging in the peripheries,” and January’s video for Unhappy was a gothic agitprop collage of HSBC slogans, aspirational adverts, fires on the high street and Latham declaiming – in a denim jacket bearing the slogan “Class War”, no less – his main theme: that capitalism is making us miserable. It is unmissable also in the lyrics to Crisis, a paean to the 2011 riots, where a London of burnt-out cars, “black batons under the stars” and spitting at Foxton’s estate agents signs is juxtaposed with the redemptive power of love, solidarity and resistance.

With surprising speed after its 2011 release, Latham’s debut album Classical Curves began attracting that reverential label, “influential” – even, in its short life, “masterpiece”. Its industrial minimalism and jagged rhythms drew stylistically on underground house and grime, a backdrop on which sat some of the sculpted synths of 80s disco and vogue. Before Classical Curves was even ready for release, let alone spawning an army of bedroom producer imitators, Latham was contemplating his next move: how to bridge the gap between the disastrous politics of the world around him and his music-making (perhaps reflecting his art school background, he refers to this as “my practice”).

HERBERT – The Shakes: Exclusive album stream

Have a listen to the latest album from Matthew Herbert - his first dance record in almost a decade - and let us know your thoughts

Matthew Herbert’s name has become synonymous with experimental music over the last decade or so: he’s made music out of pig bones (One Pig), exploding bombs (The End Of Silence) and even an issue of the Guardian.

It’s enough to make you forget that Herbert has a past steeped in dance music, and The Shakes – his first release as HERBERT since 2006’s Scale – comes billed as his attempt to “seduce the listener back to the dance-floor”.

Hear the First Official Single From Disclosure’s Forthcoming Album

Disclosure have just dropped ‘Holding On’ ft. Gregory Porter, which is set to be the first single from their forthcoming album.

After teasing us with ‘Bang That’ on Annie Mac’s Radio One show on May 1st, the boys have dropped what is set to be the first release from their hotly anticipated follow up to 2013’s ‘Settle’, and the good news is that it sounds an awful lot like Disclosure.

Everything from the muted, womping bassline to the soulful topline and the acidic, trebbling chorus build couldn’t have been produced by anyone else, so for any fans feeling that ‘Bang That’ was a bit too severe of a departure from their patented verse-chorus-verse, radio-friendly dance music, this one’s for you.

Check out the ‘Holding On’ below.

The magic of Croydon: is London's punchline having the last laugh?

When the capital banned skyscrapers in the 1960s, Croydon stepped in with concrete towers and flyovers that made it a byword for urban devastation. Fifty years later, this most unloved suburb may finally be ready to love itself

When David Bowie wanted to summarise all he found dreary, drab and stifling, there was only place he could turn. “It represented everything I didn’t want in my life, everything I wanted to get away from,” he told Q magazine in 1999. “I think it’s the most derogatory thing I can say about something: ‘God, it’s so fucking Croydon.’”

Bowie, whose personality was shaped in the electrifying cultural climate of Bromley, is not alone. Croydon has such a poor reputation that its name has become a neologism for the self-destruction of a town centre – Croydonisation. The town’s inhabitants can exhibit a lowliness bordering on self-loathing. “It could have been worse,” says Bob Stanley, whose band Saint Etienne was formed in Croydon. “In the Domesday Book it was called Crogdene. Imagine if it was still called that.”

'In the Domesday Book it was called Crogdene. Imagine if it was still called that?'

Do You Remember Underground House (Astronomar Blend)
Blaze – Do You Remember House (Solid Groove Remix) vs Seductive – Underground Sound

Astronomar & Hasse De Moor’s Horoscope Readings #4

Be openminded, trying new genres will help you expand your creativity flow.

Focus on what YOU want, taking on advice from others is fine but remember that it’s important to stick with your fundamentals

Copying and stealing ideas from others might help you get some more followers, just make sure you’ll still be able to look at yourself in the mirror at the end of the day and be happy

Remember, there is a certain peacefulness that comes with non-malicious ignorance. Try not to freak out when you see the same people headlining every festival and just have a good time with your friends.

Bedroom producers, listen to your mom or neighbors when they tell you to turn down your volume because it helps for a peaceful environment and everybody will be happy

You might want to upload your new deep house track with a Toneden “follow to download” gate to increase your stats, but realize everyone is making deep house at the moment. Uploading some kuduro-trap hybrid edits will help you stand out in people’s feeds.

Its all about the small details. If you are going to customize your “Buy Link Title’ button on your new bootleg on Soundcloud, be sure to use ALL CAPS so its legible.

Focus on the people that really mean something to you this week; if lots of people are texting you for guest list, make sure your true friends (not only industry folk) get priority this weekend

Your socials were great last week! Feel free to spend a few hours today digging for memes and scheduling some posts on your Facebook page

If you find yourself borrowing kicks from Wiwek tracks recently, you should maybe think about checking some YouTube tutorials and learning how to make your own kicks. They will add so much more personality to your new jungle terror banger!

If you are still having trouble getting backstage at the club, you need to realize this is because you don’t have a personal relationship with those who can give you that access. you need to bring something to the table, aside from an unquenchable thirst

Don’t forget to renew your Soundcloud account!

Stream new music, from Maya Jane Coles’ house beats to Empire’s hip-hop and R&B soundtrack, and let us know what you’ll be listening to this week

Why you should listen: The fallout from a polyamorous breakup inspired frontman Ruban Nielson to write this album, which may just be reason enough to give it a go.

Jamie xx: In Colour review – larging it, for introverts

(Young Turks)

In many ways, the debut album proper by xx producer Jamie Smith is yet another backward-looking record that calculatingly reconfigures the music of the past – something UK tune-makers, from Adele and Sam Smith on down the food chain, continue to make their stock-in-trade.

But In Colour is no mere sepia-tinted nostalgia trip. It might be a kaleidoscopic 11-track tribute to raves long past, a paean to the styles Smith is too young to remember first-hand, and the incidental chatter of London pirate radio circa 1992 that he is too young to have heard – a direction presaged in last summer’s pre-album offering, All Under One Roof Raving. But it is also about the pleasure of being alone, enveloped in bass, in a sea of many; of refracting what can often be a superficial experience – London clubbing – into something more existential, more nuanced, more unified.

Nocturnal Sunshine: Nocturnal Sunshine review – fruitful creative wanderings


Now feels like an odd time for producer Maya Jane Coles to switch back to her Nocturnal Sunshine moniker, given that Nicki Minaj has just had a hit with a song heavily sampling Coles’ 2010 classic, What They Say. But there’s always been a restlessness about Coles, with the bubbling house of that debut single the flipside to Nocturnal Sunshine’s atmospheric dubstep. From the scratchy beats and murmured vocals of Intro, to the melancholic two-step of the closing Hotel, it’s an album to soundtrack the grey folds of early morning. Close and almost suffocating at times, it’s peppered with pockets of air, most notably on the lilting It’s Alright and skewed dancefloor-filler Skipper. Coles’ creative meandering once again pays dividends.

Tiga announces details of new live show

Tiga is taking a new live show on the road in 2015. 

The Turbo Recordings founder has nine festival dates lined up across Europe this summer, starting with Berlin Festival on May 29th and wrapping up at Pukkelpop in Belgium on August 20th. The live show, which was developed at Stuart Price’s LA studio, sees Jori Hulkkonen joining Tiga onstage. The visual direction was handled by design collective Pfadfinderai, best known for their work with Modeselektor and Moderat, and Helmi (Division Paris), who worked with Tiga on the recent video for “Bugatti.” 

In addition to performing some of his best-known tunes—”You Gonna Want Me,” “Sunglasses At Night,” “Pleasure From The Bass”—Tiga will also perform new, unreleased material produced in collaboration with Hudson MohawkeMatthew DearBoys Noize and Martin Buttrich

“For as long as I can remember—which is forever—I’ve been a DJ,” says Tiga. “But it’s just not enough anymore. I have performed for thousands, but have I ever truly held anyone’s gaze as I sang straight into their eyes? What lies beyond this vulgar, headphone-shaped prison? Can I move the hearts of millions without facing myself first? Will I ever truly own my own madness?” 

He adds: “This summer, grab a front-row seat as these questions become answers. Join me at nine select festivals over the European summer as I embrace all the flawed glory of a perfect past and explore a future too unlimited not to share with everyone. Time means nothing to me now. There is no media. There are no masses. There is only you, me, my voice, my moves, and a love supreme.” 

Watch a teaser video for the live show below. 

Germany May 29  Berlin Festival 2015, Arena Berlin, Berlin
United Kingdom Jun 06  Parklife 2015, Heaton Park, North
Spain Jun 18  Sónar 2015, Sónar Festival, Barcelona

SoySauce Release Their Lunch Money EP

 photo 9b1cff2f-2439-4e9c-bc01-4e5b34b02310.png
SoySauce has had an incredibly promising first year on the scene. From gaining support from the likes of Diplo, Benny Blanco, Porter Robinson, Cashmere Cat & others, to getting picked up by world renowned booking agency AM Only, the rising production duo has been making some real power moves. Now, they’re ready to release their debut Lunch Money EP, which is available on iTunes.

The four-track-project will be available as a free download but it will also be available to purchase on iTunes. All the proceeds from the sale of their EP will go towards fighting hunger amongst kids. Check out a quote about SoySauce’s movement below:

We found that kids who qualify for subsidized or sponsored (free) school breakfast and lunch programs are most of the times actually going hungry when they aren’t in school. Its actually the weekends during the school year or the summer when kids go hungry the most because they aren’t being supported by the programs in school to help get them fed. We want to use the money raised from our EP to help feed those kids on the weekends. We are working with the LA Food Bank and their BackPack program to give kids enough food for six meals over the weekends to make sure they don’t go hungry.

We are a social artist project. Our mission is to fight hunger. We like having fun. We want to continue to create shared value. We want to be able to have a hell of a time doing what we do but have a larger echo into the rest of the world with our fans.” – SoySauce

[STREAM] HI-LO – Crank It Up

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

The growing bass house sub-genre seems to have a fresh new talent on its hands as HI-LO has come firing out the gates with a heavy first release, “Crank It Up.” With an almost big-room level energy, the track offers tribal rhythms that are matched with snarling, distorted synths that are supported by heavy low-end and a vocal sample to give it some character. A diverse crew of artists like Green Velvet, Diplo, Umek, Flux Pavilion, and more are already giving this jam some play time, so it’s bound to be heard on dance floors far and wide. Listen above and stay tuned for “Crank It Up” release on Mad Decent on June 25th.

[DOWNLOAD] Flight Facilities – Down To Earth (Sean Glass Remix)

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

It’s always great to see people using music as a platform for philanthropy or paying tribute to those who have passed away. Swiftly rising producer/DJ and key industry player, Sean Glass, has taken it upon himself to do both of those things with his outstanding new remix of Flight Facilities’ “Down To Earth.” Together with Glassnote Records, Future Classic, his own Win Music label, and Flight Facilities, Glass is dedicating this release to the Dan Fredinburg Foundation, which was created to help those affected by the devastating Nepal earthquake, and to celebrate the life of Dan Fredinburg, his good friend who tragically passed away while climbing Mt. Everest during the quake.

The remix itself is a warm, shimmering house cut driven by lush pads and a smooth, driving groove that serve as a perfect backdrop for the emotive vocals from the original. Its quality holds up to its great significance, and it’s an excellent contribution to a meaningful cause. Donate to the Dan Fredinburg Foundation here, listen to/download the remix above, and hear Sean Glass’ own words about the release:

“This is my favorite thing I’ve ever done. Flight Facilities are especially important to me, being my first signed artist. I look up to them as tastemakers and creators.

The remix release has been made even more special to me because of recent events. We lost a good friend whom I looked up to–Dan Fredinburg. This past weekend, we memorialized Dan in a series of very special ceremonies I am so grateful to have been a part of. It was my privilege to play this track out for the first time at the party Dan instructed us to have, should he not return.This week, there was another earthquake in Nepal.

They really need our help. We have launched the Dan Fredinburg Foundation and already raised $100k. It only made sense that while I put effort into spreading awareness for my remix, I use that energy to help the causes that are really occupying my mind and heart–rebuilding Nepal and #LiveDan.”

Unknown Mortal Orchestra: Multi-Love review – a breakup record with a difference


Related: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Multi-Love: Exclusive album stream

There are plenty of albums about heartbreak, but not so many about polyamorous relationships in which a third party leaves both you and your wife confused and heartbroken. Ruban Nielson might have tangled his emotions beyond repair during the making of his band’s third album, but you can’t deny the subject matter is compelling. “Multi-love has got me on my knee / We were one, then become three,” he sings on the title track, adding: “It’s not that this song’s about her / All songs are about her.” The Auckland/Portland band’s multi-love is multi-coloured, too, taking soul music as its template but splashing the canvas with futurist synths and trippy vocal effects. The songs nod to the 1960s (Like Acid Rain), 70s (The World Is Crowded) and 80s (Can’t Keep Checking My Phone), but always feel fresh – a giddy, psychedelic sound almost as unique as the subject matter.

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty


ØRKA is a new artist you’re going to remember.  Smooth balearic indie vibes describe this Miami-based artist, and his latest is a killer. “Phantom” is a slow burner, drawing heat from the strumming strings and raspy-yet-concise vocals.  We don’t know too much else about ØRKA other than the one other release he’s has given us — “Tell Me.”  Download both for free at his Soundcloud page, and keep an eye on this guy.

Goldroom – Embrace (feat. George Maple)

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty


Goldroom has been evolving like crazy over the past year.  With the rolling out of his live act, as well as the huge reception of his tunes, this project is becoming massive.  Arguably his most popular tune, “Embrace” is definitely a crowd favorite, and he’s just released a new version with George Maple on vocals.  The two actually had originally the track together, so what we’re really hearing is the track coming to fruition.  Such a beautiful track, make sure to buy it below.

“Getting the chance to release music through Snapchat gave me the perfect opportunity to show everyone the version of Embrace that I’ve always heard in my head. George Maple and I actually wrote Embrace together, so having this come full circle, and to have her singing on the song, feels like a dream.”

Heathered Pearls Readies New Album For Ghostly International


Polish-born Brooklyn-based artist Jakub Alexander (a.k.a. Heathered Pearls) will release his latest LP, Body Complex, in August via Ghostly International. The LP will follow on from Alexander’s beatless debut album, Loyal, with 10 tracks that lean towards the dancefloor.

Body Complex is said to be inspired by Alexander’s youth spent travelling home from Detroit afterhours with artists Terrence Dixon and Lawrence soundtracking the ride. “I respect [Terrence Dixon and Lawrence] because they can ride the same thin lines of what I love: electronic music that is heavily repetitive, melodic, and deep,” the artist says. “They both can find this elegance in techno beyond the dark warehouse.” The album will also feature fellow Ghostly artist Shigeto, Outerbridge, and The Sight Below—who also mixed and mastered the album.

Ghostly will release Body Complex on August 7, with the full tracklisting below; along with a stream of lead track “Interior Architecture Software.”

Week 3! We’re back with a new horoscope reading from Main Course‘s  Astronomar…. each week we are will giveaway a new track from the label, while Astronomar and special guest Hasse De Moor personally gives astrological readings for DJs & producers alike. Today we’ve got a raved up bootleg on Boogie’s hood anthem “Oh My” – grab it below via ToneDen and prepare to be mesmerized by your weekly horoscope reading!

Boogie – Oh My (Astronomar Bootleg)


Astronomar’s Horoscope Readings #3

Your social activity was crazy last week; keep up the good work!

Don’t forget that legends need to eat too. If you are going to bootleg a classic track, at least buy the original off Beatport.

You’ve accomplished a lot so far this year! Remind your followers with a #TBT post.

If your guest list gets messed up this coming weekend, don’t even trip. Just accept the GA wristband; your boys will sort you out once you’re in the club.

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can teach an old DJ how to reach younger fans with Internet humor. Don’t hesitate to share memes with your older DJ pals; they’ll thank you for it later!

Switch it up this week. Take a Lyft to the club instead of an Uber.

As we age, our tastes mature and you want your hospitality rider to reflect that. Jazz up your rider with a wine & cheese spread.

As always, communication is everything; even with your fans. You should take a moment to respond to all of your fan mail in your Soundcloud inbox… Wu-Tang is for the children! (Sooooooooo!)

Presentation and accessibility go a long way. Make sure your Soundcloud metadata is on point.

If you’re in a group chat with a bunch of DJs you don’t know very well, use some reserve when expressing your thoughts on your others; disaster is only a screenshot away.

Time to update your press kit!

Keep in mind that every big promoter started out as an intern handing out fliers in front of nightclubs. Be polite and say “no thanks” to the kid trying to give you a flier for Lightning In a Bottle as you leave the club this week; he may be booking you for a show in a few years.

A Tribe Called Red returns with powerhouse new Suplex EP and wrestling-themed video

A Tribe Called Red has just released a powerhouse new EP, Suplex, and a new wrestling-themed video.

Named after the wrestling move, the EP features the Juno-winning, Polaris-nominated trio's trademark mix of traditional aboriginal music, electronic, rock and more.

It also comes with guest performances by aboriginal hip-hop veteran Hellnback and past Tribe collaborators Northern Voice, as well as a remix of the track "Bodyslam" by Calgary duo Smalltown DJs.

"Growing up in a world where indigenous people are so under-represented in the media, you tend to identify with what's available to you," says A Tribe Called Red's Bear Witness in a release. “The connection between the indigenous communities of the Americas, and professional wrestling, is really heavy. In North America we had pros like Chief Jay Youngblood and Wahoo McDaniel who were indigenous, but had to dress in headdress and tassels to compete.

"In my generation, we all loved the Ultimate Warrior and hated Tatanka," he continues. "Even if nothing about the Warrior was indigenous, we made some kind of cultural connection to him. More recently, The Rock has shown us how a proud indigenous man can make it as a wrestler on his own terms.

"The idea of the video was to show that connection we made to these people beyond stereotypes, but also to see an indigenous character make it, without needing the stereotype."



1. "Suplex" feat. Northern Voice
2. "The Peoples Champ" feat. Hellnback
3. "Bodyslam"
4. "Bodyslam" (Smalltown DJs remix)
