Thug readies his third release of the year.

Young Thug has been previewing his upcoming self-titled (so to speak) project “Jeffery” on Instagram and has now announced it will drop on August 16. The tape follows up two 2016 projects: I’m Up and Slime Season 3.

There’s still no word on when I Came From Nothing 4 and his debut album Hy!£UN35 (seriously, we’re not counting Barter 6 even though it’s a triumph) will be released, but if “Jeffery” is like what we’ve heard so far this year, it should be a great holdover.

East London venue The Yard is closing due to redevelopment
Posted: 02 Aug 2016 11:33 AM PDT
The Yard, Hackney Wick
Another of the capital’s venues falls.

Established by a group of eager volunteers five years ago, Hackney Wick’s The Yard has been a central node for fringe music and theatrical performance. Since being converted from an empty warehouse is has primarily functioned as a theatre, but has also hosted plenty of club nights, including FACT faves Boxed, Stamp The Wax and FACT contributor Maya Kalev’s Wild Combination.
Today, The Yard announced via Facebook that it would be closing its doors at some time in the future, due to the redevelopment of the nearby Queen’s Yard area. The proposed plan involves building a number of new residences, but it’s not all bad news – there are also plans in place to house The Yard in a larger space.
“As part of these plans our current building will cease to exist,” a spokesperson for The Yard said. “But we hope this will provide us with the opportunity to build something new… to start a new phase for The Yard.” Adding, “We’re very much at the early stages of this process but we want and need you to be part of it. Thank you for all your support. We look forward to continuing on this journey with you.” Interested parties are urged to visit The Yard’s site to see the whole application and voice any thoughts or comments.
The rest of the month’s parties, including a Wild Combination show with DJ Haram and an appearance from dub techno pioneer Moritz Von Oswald will still go ahead as planned, and events programmer Dan Hampson took to Twitter to confirm that these shows are “definitely NOT the final few parties”.
The Yard isn’t the only venue in East London to experience trouble this summer – last week, Hackney’s Shapes condemned the local council's "agenda against live music venues" after announcing its pending closure. [via Resident Advisor

Hate it or love it? Looks like, love it.

The roller coaster ride that is (was?) G-Unit has another peak: Last night (August 1) at LA strip club Ace of Diamonds, 50 Cent and The Game squashed their 12-year beef, TMZ reports
The Game took the the mic in the club to announce their feud was over after speculation they had buried the hatchet earlier this year: “I fuck with 50, what happened that shit was twelve years ago, ain’t on that shit… Ain’t nobody on that old shit.”

Tension between the two rappers started when Interscope head Jimmy Iovine pushed the release of 50’s sophomore album The Massacre back to accommodate The Game’s debut. Rumors swirled that there were conflicts on the video shoot for Game’s breakout single ‘Hate It or Love It’ and 50 Cent subsequently denounced The Game’s G-Unit affiliation live on-air on Hot 97.
The Game most recently organized a police brutality protest while 50 Cent announced he’s set to star in the upcoming Predator reboot.

Revisit ‘Hate It or Love It’ below.

The Bristol-via-Southampton producer is back with a new long-form project.

Hyetal is gearing up to release the follow-up to 2013's Modern Worship with 3-track EP Run From The Light. The collection “was inspired by the true electro acoustic reverbs of
The Flamingos on their 1959 doo-wop classic 'Flamingo Serenade' as well as the most sinister post-punk kraut grooves of Bauhaus,” according to press release.

“Over the last couple of years I've taken some time out to explore new ways of writing music,” he says. “Teaching myself how to sing and trying out different types of vocal processing made music click for me in a way that it hadn't in a long time. The songs were inspired by the blurs between reality and imagination and the need to belong.”
The EP will launch with a website made in conjunction with Dominic Hawgood of Royal College of Art who also made the album art. Hear the first single ‘Near Water’ below.

Earlier this year, FACT’s John Twells and Bryan McKay headed to Montreal with local FACT contributor Son Raw for MUTEK, and talked to a handful of artists about the nature of live performance.

Spatial, aka Matt Spendlove, burst onto the scene in 2008 with the Infra001 EP, the first of a series of influential 10″ releases on his own Infrasonics imprint. Pulling apart garage and rave tropes, Spendlove quickly became notorious for his smart reflections on popular sounds, blending the low end bounce of Wookie or MJ Cole with the studied rhythmic clatter of Mark Fell.

We talked to Spendlove at this year’s MUTEK Montreal, and found out just how the producer moves his intricate studio productions into the live space. With a pared-down setup (bits of analogue hardware and a laptop), Spendlove tries to be a bit “free-er sonically” with his performances, while retaining the traces of the jungle and rave he grew up with.

If you want to catch Spatial’s live show and happen to be within easy access of London, he’s playing Broken Sonics at Corsica Studios on August 12.

Spatial is an alumni of the SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, which is supported by the Creative Europe program of the European Union.

Directed by Bryan McKay. Interview by Son Raw. Shot by Bryan McKay and John Twells. Produced by John Twells.

Simon Reynolds to chronicle glam rock history in new book Shock and Awe

Mott The Hoople, Lou Reed and Gary Glitter all turn up in the glitter-dusted volume.
Veteran music writer Simon Reynolds will explore the history of glam rock in a forthcoming book for Faber.
Shock and Awe: Glam Rock and Its Legacy is billed as “the first complete history” of pop’s most decadent genre, covering the backcombed and lipstick-smeared likes of Marc Bolan, David Bowie, Roxy Music, New York Dolls, Slade, Iggy Pop and Alice Cooper.

Faber explains that the Energy Flash author will chart the sounds, styles and sexual politics that came to define the first half of the '70s, tracking the legacy of glam up to the present day with a final chapter on hip hop, Lady Gaga, and David Bowie’s death.

Shock And Awe is out on October 6 in hardback and paperback.

Bowie tributes show no sign of letting up almost eight months after the rock icon’s death, with a thousand people teaming up to perform ‘Rebel Rebel’ in Italy last week (watch below) and the BBC hosting a David Bowie Prom with performances by Anna Calvi and a radio special with Iggy Pop.

CARLA DAL FORNO - Aug 2016 Press B - Credit-Marijn-Degenaar 500x700

The long-time associate puts her solo stamp on the label.

Melbourne-raised, Berlin-based artist Carla dal Forno announces the release of her debut solo album for Blackest Ever Black.

You Know What It's Like, which follows April's 'Fast Moving Cars' 7″ and previous projects for Blackest Ever Black, Tarcar and F ingers, is due out October 9. The LP is described as “an album for in-between days” in the press release and one that “occupies in-between states: plain-speaking pop, disorientated by dub. Psychedelic folk delivered with (post-)punk economy.”

First single, ‘What You Gonna Do Now?’, embodies the label’s chilly, post-punk-inspired aesthetic, but with dal Forno’s gorgeously deadpan vocal in tow. It’s one of those songs that just “kind of wrote itself,” according to the artist.

Speaking to The FADER today, dal Forno says the song “is kind of a fantasy – imagine being able to have that much control and power over someone and enact revenge…It’s not something I’d ever want, but it’s fun to mess around with that concept in a song.”

Hear the single below and see Carla dal Forno live when she launches her album at Corsica Studios on October 15.

Hudson Mohawke has shared footage of DJ Shadow playing his unreleased remix of Endtroducing highlight ‘Midnight in a Perfect World’.

In a tweet, the Warp artist said he was “honoured to be involved in one of the records” that shaped his career, having seen DJ Shadow on the original Endtroducing tour when he was 10 years old.

Played at DJ Shadow’s show at Electric Brixton in London last week, stream footage of the remix below.

Last month FACT’s Laurent Fintoni spoke to the instrumental hip-hop producer about the legacy of Endtroducing and his new album The Mountain Will Fall.
