Mic Mills is an electronic music producer from Adelaide, Australia. ‘Pig of a Man’ is his latest belter to drop on The Globalise LP, out February 7th. If you like the breaks, be sure to check out the deep 12-inch collaboration with Furious Frank as well.
William Onyeabor was a Nigerian musician and businessman. He was known as “The Chief” in southeast Nigeria, where he built “the greatest record manufacturing business in all of West Africa.” He released nine funky electronic albums in total, all pressed at his own studio.
A legend, he passed away last month. His music survives him.
German electronic artist Orson Wells ‘Blend’ provides a flashback to early 1990s Prodigyesque techno, with a proper step toward vibrating house music. According to the Bandcamp page, the album artwork is a hodgepodge of stickers “found in car liveries.”
Always pushing forward. That’s how you could describe Manchester electronic producer Andy Stott‘s music. He gave up making formulaic club tracks to focus on pionneering weirder “knackered house,” combining “sludgy tempos, grainy sounds, dense atmospheres.”
He continues exploring new sounds on his latest album Too Many Voices. Perhaps the most interesting track is ‘Selfish,’ where Stott shapeshifts between grime and a distorted dancehall beat. Pay extra attention to catch the noise in between.
Mysterious Parisian electronic producer R/no throws some dark material in his new track ‘Salle d’attente.’ Underground techno at its finest.
Grab the EP on Bandcamp.
Originally meant to be released on his next record, Detroit-based electronic producer and drummer Shigeto decided to drop a melancholic but hopeful tune early given the Presidential results last week.
This song was finished on november 8th, 2016 with the intention of using it for my next record. i sampled an inspiration to me, detroit artist, tyree guyton speaking at an event a couple months ago and used it in the intro because it spoke to me.
on the morning of november 10th a light went off in my head and realized the song had to be let go.
no matter how i feel or what i’m thinking about the 2016 election.
no matter who i voted for or even if i voted at all…
i’m thinking about what i’m made of right now.
i’m thinking about what we all are made of right now, what the world is made of right now.
i’m thinking about who i want to be and how i want to play my small part in this world right now.
this song and message comes from a place of love.
Thanks Shigeto and the Ghostly crew.
New Zealand brothers Ben & Louis Helliker-Hales are Chaos In The CBD. Their newest EP dropped earlier this week on the Japanese imprint Mule Music.
The track ‘Subterranean Storm,’ also the name of the record, continues to showcase the group’s mastery of producing soothing and restrained deep house music.
I highly recommend digging through the duo’s Soundcloud page and listening to the group’s other Balearic delights such as the jazz-infused tracks 78 to Stanley Bay, Midnight in Peckham, and Trust is Key.
Square Lines are French duo Nicolas Le Mée and Simon Jolliet. Their debut EP Transmissions Overseas is an exploration of abstract sounds, much in tune with many of the other ambient artists signed to London-based Apollo Records.
CO/R is a collaboration between techno heads Herron and Joy Orbison. The duo just released Gudrun, a vinyl 12″ from the Trilogy Tapes Store.
The lead single ‘Bells, Walking’ is a continuation of Joy Orbison’s 2009 post-dubstep hit ‘Hyph Mngo‘ laced in with Herron’s mastery of house and UK garage. Learn more about Joy Orbison in the Sole Selectors video below.
