In today’s #selftitledpremiere, When Saints Go Machine frontman Nikolaj Vonsild ventures even further out into the void with , a new experimental pop/R&B trio with guitarist/producer Simon Formann ( Lower, Age Coin, Yen Towers) and Villads Klint (a.k.a. Minais B). Picture Arca colliding with ANOHNI-lots of vibrato vibes, crystalline keys, and bit-crushed beats-and you’re about halfway there.
New Blondes album is now here! Stream ‘Warmth’ below…
The Bicep boys will be down at Rough Trade East just off Brick Lane this September 19th. For more info head over to http://bit.ly/2uvftjC.
Blondes – the duo of Sam Haar and Zach Steinman – started out in New York’s late-’00s experimental scene, playing trance-inducing synth-and-sampler sets in basements and warehouses. Over the past seven years, they’ve steadily edged closer to the more defined space of the dance floor – by playing clubs in Europe and Ibiza, and by releasing music that has a closer understanding of the ebbs and flows of a DJ set.
Set times for Bicep – LIVE at The Warehouse Project this November have been announced. To grab one of the last available tickets to this absolutely insane line up head over to http://bit.ly/2vHqj6z.
Simian Mobile Disco will be joining the legendary Pet Shop Boys at Breakfest this October! If you are planning on heading over to Medellin, then tickets are now available here.
Ross From Friends is to release The Outsiders EP, his third and most expansive release to date on Magicwire. Drawing on from influences from hip-hop sampling to new wave the final result is the same stripped-down approach to sound design we’ve come to know Ross for: quaint melodies, dated acoustics and a simpler-time sensibility make a tongue-in-cheek statement not unlike the artist’s stage name itself.
Fellow Detroit native Jimmy Edgar is talented well beyond his years, and well beyond the studio. In addition to his genre-spanning productions, he’s also a director, photographer, and multimedia artist; he’s at his best when he’s able to combine his myriad interests on one project (but more on that below).
Medlar and Ross From Friends will be making waves (quite literally) headlining the Caramello x PPG Boat Party this Saturday evening at Soundwave Festival in Croatia.

“Once a month, we ask an international artist to record a one-hour mix “Deep Traveler”. After Ben Sun, Jesse Bru, Nick Holder, Mark Grusane and Yuri Shulgin, it’s Medlar’s turn to play the game.
Medlar aka Ned Pegler plunged into music with his work for the Mr.Bongo label in Brighton, where he met the founder of the Wolf Music label or the future artist Greymatter. He finally really began his career when he left Brighton for London ten years ago. Since then, the English producer and DJ has achieved a deserved success thanks to a prolific and qualitative discography.
His first piece was released in 2011 on the label Wolf Music. This is the beginning of a collaboration that still exists today. Remixes, an EP with Dan Shake, another with Ishmael, records released on labels Delusions of Grandeur, Riverette or For Discos Only .. Medlar has nothing to prove, in just five years of career and gigs everywhere in the world. The release of his first long format, Sleep, in 2013, was already evidence of a talent with hip-hop, deep and disco influences.
The British producer plays tomorrow night at La Plage de Glazart for Dure Vie alongside Detroit Swindle and Frits Wentink. To get in the mood, discover the new “Make It Deep Traveler” by Medlar.”
Chinese hip-hop, King Krule collaborations, and a cover of Eminem’s Stan.
