new Deadmau5

I'm not the biggest deadmau5 fan, he is a good producer but sometimes his tracks seem a little boring to me. This is new though and supposedly each block of songs is supposed to cover different styles plus the one time I saw him I had a great time so lets give it a try.


For Lack of a Better Name

Zero 7 !!

Been waiting a while for this one

I haven't gotten a chance to listen to this yet but from their myspace tracks it sounds much better than their last album. It seems as if they have gone back to their more off kilter pop sounding roots, it comes out 9/22 so get on it.

2562, a.k.a The Hague's Dave Huismans, has been responsible for some of the most arresting dubstep and dubstep-influenced music of the past few years. His debut album, Aerial, was released last year to much acclaim on Pinch's Tectonic label, and this November its eagerly anticipated follow-up, Unbalance, is set to drop.

As well as his work as 2562, Dave also produces under the name A Made Up Sound, a project dedicated to more obviously house and techno-oriented sounds. There was a low-key Made Up Sound album released last year, Short Cuts; the AMUS Archive EP, out earlier in the summer on Clone's Basement Series, is one of the year's best. This month Dave will bring out 'Rework'/'Closer' on the newly formed A Made Up Sound label.

So, what about this here FACT Mix?
"I hadn’t recorded a mix in ages," Dave tells us, "So I made one that gives an impression of how I like to play in a club right now: warm up with some house and techno favourites and boogie on from there. Some old, some new, some borrowed etc..."
Featuring new productions from 2562 plus tracks from the likes of Martyn, Anthony 'Shake' Shakir, Marcel Dettmann, Shortstuff and Untold, FACT Mix 81 is basically essential. Download and enjoy. - Extra Music new

Rogue State - Opportunity

Fresh modern steppers/dubstep hybrids from Rogue State on Argon Records. Hailing from the Steel City (aka Sheffield don't ya know) where he runs his R8 records imprint, home to RSD among others, Rogue State makes a thoroughly authentic blend of dubstep production techniques applied to 4/4 steppers styles, with vocal contibutions from some of the UK's top reggae MCs. 'Opportunity' features Bongo Chilli on the mic over a powerful 4/4 steppers riddim charged with a heavy subbass drive. 'Dem Can't Stop We' on the flip invites legendary toaster Daddy Freddy to the mic over a more dubstep debted cut with nasty flaring synthlines on a ruff 4/4 ting.

Le Loup

By far one of the best bands making music today, this is their second album and it comes out on Sept 22 so make you sure you go out and grab this, I know I will.



Le Loup is awesome

Created during a time of personal crisis, "The Throne" is a cataclysm, an escape, and a journey. Inspired largely by Dante's "Inferno", the complex themes of this record are characterized by mounting tension and dramatic swells, coupled with an engaging emotional resonance that lifts just as much as it illuminates. A collection of rushing narratives that connect the individual struggle of each of us to the death of the universe in a manner that's both intimate and unshakably vital. "...Le Loup are going for the multi-layered collage of instrumentation sound and the end result is a surprisingly fun and danceable mix of music that can range from Arcade Fire to Death Cab For Cutie to even a smattering of Denali" - Pastepunk.
I don't really the see the death cab comparison but whatever, this is one of my favorite albums and I am going to post their new album above this but I really think you should listen to this first if you haven't already.

Demdike Stare - Symbiosis (Modern Love)

Demdike Stare is the occult new project from Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty. Miles is probably better known as Modern Love's DJ MLZ or as 0.5 of Pendle Coven. Sean Canty is the dedicated digger behind the Haxan events and a member of the hugely respected Finders Keepers crew of vinyl vultures. Their collaborative project tracks the sonic leylines of cult soundtracks, Arabesque dubs and psychotomimetic ephemera with a proper Lancastrian twist.....(myspace)

Memory Tapes - Seek Magic

Moniker-crazed one-man-band Dayve Hawk splits the difference between his Weird Tapes project (dancey, electro) and his Memory Cassette project (hazy, wistful) with Memory Tapes (dancey, yet wistful!). After the incredible, New Order-style single "Bicycle", we now get news of the debut Memory Tapes LP, dubbed Seek Magic and out in a very limited edition September 29 via Acephale.

To start, the record is primarily being released on vinyl-- first run records will be light blue with some special "white/blue haze" LPs thrown in just in case you didn't get the idea that this shit is fucking hazy.

If you're still into CDs, you'll have to travel to London's Rough Trade shop to pick up Seek Magic because that's the only place on earth selling it on compact disc. UPDATE: The Rough Trade version is out this coming Monday, August 24, and it comes with a bonus disc featuring a 30-minute instrumental.-Pitchfork

Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms

An elusive new project from composer Alan Palomo from Vega. Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Soliciting the visual acrobatics of video artist Alicia Scardetta, this project is setting out to be a multimedia maelstrom.

Psychic Chasms is set to be released on October 13th, 2009 on Lefse Records

Brownswood Bubblers Four Compiled By Gilles Peterson

Gilles Peterson's annual round-up of up-and-coming or unfairly overlooked artists drops neat and tidy this week with a fourteen track selection of future soul, downbeat hiphop and mellow world grooves. Opening duties are given to Stones Throw phenomenon Mayer Hawthorn, the one man retro-soul mission with a stunning sound on 'Maybe So, Maybe So' uncannily recalling classic Curtis Mayfield. Souleance's 'Mañana' ticks the bass-heavy post Dilla bracket with ease, while El Michels Affair roll out the coolin' 'Shimmy Shimmy Ya'. Lisa Papineau's all too brief 'Rene Thomas' is an odd delight somewhere between Bat For Lashes and Goblin, while Mali's Oumou Sangare takes the tracklist to Africa. We'd have to recommend checking Keaver & Brause's ace nugget 'Awake', but the best is saved for last with Floating Points scaling astral heights on the exclusive 'Peroration' feat. Fatima and Lone provides one of the many highlights from last years 'Lemurian' LP with the psychedelic compressions of 'Sea Spray'. Lovingly selected and beautifully presented, get in...(Listen/Buy at Boomkat)
