The Bootleg Tapes | Vol. XVIII

Join me for an hour of deep soulful dance music.

I meant to have this ready for you on March 12th, which is my birthday. I wanted it to be my birthday gift to you. However, on the 11th, I was stricken with food poisoning by some lamb curry from my former favourite local Indian joint and puked my guts out all night. I’ve had better birthdays. It took my a day or so to recover and to get this mix uploaded etc…

Some of the selections are unreleased–some just hit the street–and a few were released a while back.

The Bootleg Tapes | Vol. X

Bootleg Tapes | Vol. X (art)

Why is this mix series titled “The Bootleg Tapes”?  I have been pondering this question… Wikipedia describes a “bootleg recording” as “an audio or video recording of a performance that was not officially released by the artist or under other legal authority.” The article goes on to explain that “the process of making and distributing such recordings is known as bootlegging.” To be honest, I did not pay for any of these tracks, and some of them have not yet been released by their respective labels. I did not receive permission from the “copyright holders” to re-distribute this content, (as SoundCloud’s copyright infringement detection software pointed out to me when I tried unsuccessfully to upload the mix the first couple times.) In short, these mixes are conceived and distributed in contravention of music copyright law. For this reason, it would seem that the title of the series is fitting.

For this tenth episode, I put together a special two-hour mix comprised of an eclectic selection of house, techno, UK garage, and soul. Most of the tracks are contemporary, but you will hear a handful of classics from the likes of Fingers Inc., Rhythim Is Rhythim, Inner City, and Carl Craig.


Special thanks to the other Low-Life staff-writers who helped me find a great deal of this music–as well as to our followers.

The Bootleg Tapes | Vol. IX

Bootleg Tapes IX (Art)

For this latest installment of the Bootleg Tapes, I put together a mix-tape comprised of primarily melodic soulful jacking house music with a sprinkling of UKG, and techno–a handful of gems that I have been rinsing over the past little while.

You might put it on in order to set the tone for a night out (or in) with good company–but it’s perfectly suitable for grooving alone in your bedroom or bumping on your car stereo.

With love,

Filterwolf | Brooklyn via Monmartre (Altered Natives remix)

Danny Native, a producer based in the UK, recently shared this understated rolling filtered-house remix of Filterwolf’s “Brooklyn via Montmartre” (via XLR8R).

It breathes- and unfolds slowly over eight minutes- looping infectious piano rhythms, punctuated by random brass riffs and crash cymbals.

Download || Brooklyn via Monmartre (Altered Natives remix) – Filterwolf


Four Tet | 128 Harps

Here is a freshly-picked bouncing melodic beauty from Four Tet: “128 Harps.”

Enough said.



King L | Val Venis

[King Louie]

This is Chicago rapper King Louie‘s first release for Epic Records: endearingly shameless self-aggrandizement loosely flowing over skittering hats and rude tuba shots.



Homeboy Sandman | Look Out

Stones Throw just uploaded “Look Out” from NYC-based MC Homeboy Sandman‘s Chimera EP, which has met with a wave of enthusiastic support since its release in April.



Simian Mobile Disco | Unpatterns LP

James and Jas of Simian Mobile Disco dropped the Unpatterns LP today on Wichita Recordings. The duo will be conjuring up magic live via subtractive synthesis at Fabric in London this Friday evening to celebrate the release; (tickets and info here).

The publishers have generously and wisely made the entire LP available for free streaming. (And thankfully, they have opted to leave out the frustrating fade ins/outs that are typical of many SoundCloud “previews” these days).

If you haven’t heard their classic debut LP Attack Decay Sustain Release LP, and you like to dance, I suggest you get your hands on it and stick it on a quality system when the mood strikes you. (Their second LP, Temporary Pleasure, also offers a handful of gems such as, “Cruel Intentions”).

Back in the late ‘90s, James and Jas were studying folklore and physics respectively at Manchester University, while crafting experimental electronic jams in the spare room of their shared house. Although he eventually dropped out of his program, Jas’s grounding in quantum physics served him later on in music: the drum pattern on SMD’s early white label “Tits & Acid” was based on the matrix mechanics of Werner Heisenberg.


Also, here is the new video for “Pareidolia.”

(“Pareidolia”: a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant).



Guy Andrew | The Wait / Hands In Mine

Curated by Scuba, Hot Flush is a diamond in the rough with an impressive catalog of inspired UK dance music, despite its relatively young age.

Guy Andrew has a 12″ release (A1 “The Wait / B1 “Hands In Mine”) forthcoming on Hot Flush Recordings on May 28th.

“The Wait” is proper subterranean rave music. (I look forward to getting my hands on the full-length cut).

We will keep our ears open for more from Guy-
