ART + CULTURE + MUSIC

TCTS - Trust 

pure fire

The vocoder—part military technology, part musical instrument—has had quite a history. In The New Yorker’s new Object of Interest video, we explore the vocoder in settings ranging from the Second World War to Kraftwerk parties, featuring interviews with Laurie Anderson, Cozmo D, Dave Tompkins, and Frank Gentges. 

Jax Jones - Go Deep 

it’s never too late to have a bucket list

Louis La Roche - The Way She Makes Me Feel [mp3 SoundCloud] 

LLR is back with two EP’s and an album ready for release.

Dusty Cassette EP is a concept piece, playing respect to the late 1980’s. The 5-track release is a time capsule in sound, warm retro synths and funky guitars remind the listener of a time forgotten.

Gritty and rough around the edges, the EP sounds like an 80’s cassette ahead of it’s time. To celebrate, Louis is giving away an exclusive sixth track The Way She Makes Me Feel

Dusty Cassette EP is out on Ever After Records August 19th (Bandcamp) and September 16th (iTunes).

Duke Dumont - Won’t Look Back (Remixes) 

Ahead of the release of his new single Won’t Look Back on August 24th on Blasé Boys Club, Duke Dumont has shared a 5 track remix EP of the track, featuring Special Request (aka Paul Woolford), Star Slinger, Shadow Child, Last Mgapie and Blasé Boys Club signee Jax Jones. 

The remix EP was curated by Duke himself and offers five diverse and adventurous takes on the track, from gritty UKG house (Shadow Child) to dub-inflicted breakbeat (Last Magpie), rave-addled tech-house (Special Request), blissed-out Balearica (Star Slinger) and jacking piano house (Jax Jones).
