New Arrivals


PANTS, James - All The Hits (Stones Throw) Comentários: Stones Throw wunderkind James Pants has put together a album of what sounds like unfinished song ideas. Marketed as a genreless collection of "library music," elements of '80s boogie and old-school hip-hop are still the main components of Pants' arsenal. Most songs are small explorations of big beats and squelching basslines that rarely hit the two-minute mark. nota do editor [Para Ouvir/Samples]

Modeselektor -Body Language Volume 8 (Get Physical) Comentários: Their contribution to Get Physical’s Body Language mix series is a riotous, bass-heavy affair, one which takes in all kinds of interesting developments in cutting edge contemporary dance music. MDSLKTR draw a natural line from the fizzing aqua-crunk of Rustie’s ‘Zig-Zag’ to the R&B bump of Missy Elliott’s Timbaland-produced ‘Lick Shots’, from the skippy 90s techno of G-Man’s ‘Quo Vadis’ to the tough Berghain minimalism of Norman Nodge. Dubstep - a big influence on the Moderat project - plays a pivotal role in the mix: moody, synth-led masterpieces by Peverelist and Benga recall classic Detroit techno, while Untold’s devastating ‘Anaconda’ is sheer dancefloor energy. Scuba’s ‘Klinik’ isn’t so much dubstep as broken, reductionist house music. Throughout the mix, Gernot and Sebastian astound with their ability to bring apparently disparate tunes together into perfect synchrony: who else would have thought to marry the edgy 2-step of Horsepower Productions to the austere 4/4 pulse of vintage Robert Hood, and on into the crunching digital dancehall of Major Lazer? Sometimes the links that Modeselektor forge are less bizarre but no less effective: Joker & Rustie. in W&S [Para Ouvir/Samples]

CHROMEO/VARIOUS - DJ Kicks (K7) Comentários: The self confessed "only successful Arab/Jew partnership since the dawn of time" aka Chromeo are given the keys to cruise through the first new DJ-Kicks mix in over 2 years. It's an absolute treat for all the disco afficionados, dropping with dangerously trendy timing in the midst of a glitterball renaissance and packed out with rare and killer cuts to grease even the rustiest hips. In keeping with tradition, the pair provide an exclusive track for the mix, covering The Eagles' 'I Can't Tell You Why' with typically slick results, but the highlights have to be Kano's 'Ikeya-Seki', the rockin' Linn drums of Donna Allen's 'Serious', Chateau Marmont's opulent Italo-electro greaser 'Solar Antapex', deadly dance-pop from Val Young, NRG-Italo from Lifelike, cool-out disco soul from Leo Sayer 'Easy To Love', and a final touch of overpowering sax smut from Alan Parsons project on 'Pipeline'.
