Following a series of announcements regarding their forthcoming album, Mount Kimbie have debuted the second single off of Cold Spring Fault Less Youth. “Blood and Form” is a slow burner, grounded in a hollow, marching beat and soft horns that simmer beneath deliberately deadpan vocals.
Tune in to Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show later this evening to catch Dom and Kai’s live session, recorded earlier this week at Maida Vale studios.
Cold Spring Fault Less Youth is out May 27th via Warp.

In anticipation for TNGHT’s upcoming U.S. tour, the glorified duo have released a one track single titled “Acrylics”, released via Bleep (Warp x Lucky Me). After consistently lighting dance floors on fire with their previously released TNGHT EP (Warp x Lucky Me), fans and followers were eagerly awaiting the next product released by the super-group. Make of it what you will, but surely expect DJs to play out this jumpy, horn-heavy club sound across the international electronic music scene.

Detroit-born dance floor champion, Jimmy Edgar, has transformed Jamie Lidell‘s original “You Naked” into a sexy deep groove that is sure to shake walls at obscure hours in the coming weeks. Jamie’s whining vocals augment Jimmy’s raw and distorted beat flawlessly. Find some pretty eyes, stare into them, and move your body to the beat. The remix has been released via Warp Records, and is available to purchase today on ITunes.

Released on February 19th via Warp Records, Jamie Lidell is Lidell‘s fourth record following his 2005 return to solo work with Multiply, Jim (2008), and Compass (2010). Jamie Lidell was committed to tape and mixed at Lidell’s newly built studio in his new home in Nashville, the latest stop on a restless migratory pattern that has seen him move from his birthplace in the heart of England, through the musical hotbeds of Berlin and New York. On this latest project, Lidell blends equal parts soul and funk with experimental electronic and dance influences.
I have not carefully listened through the record in its entirety, and I don’t have time to give it the review it deserves, but after a quick preview of each of the tracks, “Blaming Something” and “What A Shame” are two of the stand-out cuts for me.

Shadows turn to grey / Slave today-
Yesterday evening, while Ben UFO was preparing for his Rinse FM show, he received a rather cryptic video message from Mount Kimbie and subsequently got his hands on (and played out) the first track to emerge from the UK duo’s forthcoming record.
As it stands, Mount Kimbie are keeping the details of the album almost entirely under wraps. The pair recently mentioned that the LP is in fact finished, will be released via Warp and is heavily influenced by being on tour and playing live for two years straight. The title and release date have yet to be announced. However, it won’t be too much longer until we know more- Dom and Kai have an upcoming string of tour dates and will be releasing some more tunes in the not too distant future.
“Made to Stray” is longer that what we would generally expect from the pair, but it’s a welcome adjustment. Atop a bed of clicking percussion, MK’s characteristic warm, warbling synths build into a melodic climax complete with distant, melancholy vocals. Have a listen to the radio rip below.
Update: In the last week Dom and Kai have made it known that the album, entitled Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, will be released on May 27th, announced a U.S./Canadian tour, and offered up “Made to Stray” for free download. Head here to grab it.
I haven’t checked in with Darkstar since their chilly heart-wrenching North LP (2010) on Hyperdub.
“Timeaway” is the group’s latest single coming to you via Warp Records. Darkstar is a trio comprised of vocalist James Buttery and Aiden & James Young. Download the song here in exchange for an email address.
Find out a little more about the making of their latest album forthcoming on Warp in this recent interview via Dummy Mag.

TNGHT, the boisterous super-group comprised of Hudson Mohawke and Lunice, released the video for the single, Higher Ground, yesterday morning. The video propels already high anticipation for the self-titled EP’s release on July 23rd/24th through Warp, and Lucky Me records.
Pre Order the TNGHT EP here.
Yesterday, Hudson Mohawke and Lunice (TNGHT) uncovered a preview mix for their impending self titled EP. The collection will be available on vinyl as well as for digital download on July 23/24. There is already a huge buzz around their first UK headlining show at London’s Village Undeground next Thursday, June 21.

Adding to an expansive discography of mind-bogglingly intricate frenetic experimental (acid-tinged) drum and bass music, Tom Jenkinson (a.k.a. Squarepusher) just put out his latest album Ufabulum on Warp.
Compared to his debut LP Feed Me Weird Things (1996), on “Dark Steering”, Squarepusher sounds less focused on articulating hyper-stimulated breaks and more focused on developing a narrative through synth orchestration. However, the baffling complexity and explosive energy of his rhythms remain unchanged.

The two have recently announced that their debut self-titled EP will be available late-July, jointly released through Warp and LuckyMe. If you weren’t able to catch them down south, get acquainted below with the first taste of their release: the wonky, bass-driven “Bugg’n.”
