Kyle Andrews 'Bombs Away' (Direct Link)

Lobisomem "Onze Pedras" Out Today



The first time I mentioned Lobisomen was back in July. Well the day has finally arrived and Brooklyn's beat maestro is releasing his "Onze Pedras" full length on Tall Corn.

Copy



I feel like Copy is truly a part of the original wave of 'Blog' music. In so much that I was downloading tracks from him in my earliest days of trolling blogs to find new music. He has continued to evolve and his penchant for 8-bit bouncing beats and fun time synths is still all there. The Portland producer has a new album due out today on Audio Dregs called 'Hard Dream' and if all that wasn't enough-an EP of R. Kelly remixes! Sex tapes aside, I can't help but love R. Kelly. He's just magnificently ridiculous.

Bird By Snow

DAM-FUNK: ADOLESCENT FUNK




Dam-Funk "I Like Your Big Azz (Girl)" (Direct Link via Stones Throw)

Dam-Funk has been in the game longer than most could imagine. I've had the track above on 45 for a while now and it's an early recording from the master of the Funkmosphere. Stones Throw main man, Peanut Butter Wolf, has decided to help us journey further into the cosmic realms of Dam with a compiled release of tracks recorded by Dam between 1988-1992.

And check out THIS album cover! Seriously? Why didn't my prom look like that?

Oh Electro Funk, how I always need you by my side.

The album is set for release on October 26th.

Roots Manuva Meets Wrongtom



With artwork from the legendary Tony McDermott, who some of you may know from his artwork from this little reggae label GREENSLEEVES, the vocals of my favorite UK toaster & MC-Roots Manuva and the impeccable production skills of Wrongtom: this will prove to be in heavy rotation for me until the heat fades away in New Orleans. (Which may be sometime in December, which I'm happy about.)

After a spec dub mix from Wrongtom, Big Dada commissioned a full album of dubs spanning all four of Roots Manuva's full length albums including "Dub Come Save Me" and "Alternately Deep" plus a new collaboration with Manuva and Ricky Ranking on lead single "Jah Warriors".

Roots Manuva Meets Wrongtom 'Duppy Writer' is due out 9/21 on Big Dada.

Now I just need to pre-order this one on vinyl so I can really enjoy the artwork.

Sistol (aka Vladislav Delay)



Sistol 'On The Bright Side (Original Mix)' (Direct Link)


Sistol 'Funseeker (Oneohtrix Point Never Rainbro Mix)' (Direct Link)

Sistol 'On The Bright Side (The Brighter Side Scuba remix)' (Direct Link) (via FACT Magazine)

Sasu Ripatti is hardly a household name. He's a true luminary of electronic music. Whether it be under the guise of Luomo with smooth tech-bounce vocally driven house or the more experimental side of electronic dirges as Vladislav Delay, Ripatti is inventive and relentless with the sheer amount of music he's released.

One of the more impressive aspects to his production work is that if you don't care for one of his producing alias you will most likely downright love another.

Sistol is one of his earliest recording monikers and this week marks the first full-length release in quite some time. Phthalo Records will be releasing his new Sistol LP, 'On The Bright Side' as well as a re-issue of his first Sistol album along with a second album of remixes including John Tejada, Alva Noto, FaltyDL, Sutekh, Mike Huckaby, and [a]pendics.shuffle (to name just a few of the remixers).

Will Sasu finally step into the Techno spotlight? I'm not sure. But, I've been listening to his records for years and I suggest you do the same.

Eskmo 'Come Back'



A few days ago I received the promo for the Ninja Tune XX compilation. I feel like it wasn't that long ago that I was picking up the humble 3 disc set for the 10th anniversary of the ubiquitous label. Needless to say the compilation is stellar and has been rotating through my five CD disc changer (remember those?) constantly since I received it.

Eskmo, is one of Ninja Tune's most recent discoveries. He's released music via other stalwarts of electronic music, Warp and Planet Mu previously and on October 19th his self-titled debut full length will be released on Ninja Tune.

As a part of his upcoming North American tour, his album release and the XX Ninja Tune box set release; Eskmo is giving away his single 'Come Back' which is featured in the collection.

A crossover hybrid of sewer soul, rhythm step and dream funk.











Eskmo touches down in my current city, New Orleans, on October 21st, also my birthday. Trust I will be there.

Grand Lake 'The Adventures of Pete & Pete Theme Song'



Also known as "Hey Sandy" by Polaris but, better known as the theme song to the early 90's Nickelodeon show 'The Adventures of Pete & Pete.' I actually went to college with a girl who had a recurring role on the show too.

I'm mostly posting this track because I love a cover song. Cover songs are the finest form of flattery in music.

Kordan



Kordan - Mirror by terrorbird

Kordan is a sexy little trio, originally from Puerto Rico, who now call Brooklyn home. After opening for Cut Copy on a portion of their tour last year, their debut full-length "The Longing" will be released October 5th on Last Bummer Records.

Their music is the kind of neo-Shoe Gaze / Dream Pop finding a massive resurgence since the days of Ride, Slowdive and Swervedriver. Synth filled and propulsive tunes to help you wake in the morning or find your dreams at night.
