The album&#8217;s production and musical cohesiveness have been objectively improved from his prior work, and <cite>Flower Boy</cite> is packed with introspection and a fragility previously unimaginable. Thank you for finally letting us in, Tyler! Thank&nbsp;you!</p> <p>Hmm. Maybe he&#8217;ll soon be able to say the same to the countries that not-so-quietly <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2015/sep/01/tyler-the-creator-comments-banned-uk-freedom-of-speech">saw it fit</a> to prevent his&nbsp;entry? </p> <p>Well&#8230;until that time comes (or doesn&#8217;t), fans local to the United States will be able to enjoy (or decry) an upcoming winter tour that&#8217;s set to begin at the end of January 2018. Support notably comes from Vince Staples and Taco throughout the tour, which naturally skews toward the major&nbsp;cities. </p> <p>You know the drill: peep some memory-jogging clips in order to solidify and/or reevaluate your recent stance on the guy, then see if you can picture yourself in attendance at one of the dates&nbsp;below. </p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FUXX55WqYZs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/jxlBOBOZHqI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p>Tyler, The Creator, Vince Staples, <span class="amp">&amp;</span>&nbsp;Taco:</p> <p>01.26.18 - Vancouver, BC - PNE Forum<br /> 01.27.18 - Portland, OR - Memorial Coliseum<br /> 01.29.18 - San Francisco, CA - The Armory<br /> 01.31.18 - Sacramento, CA - Memorial Auditorium<br /> 02.02.18 - San Diego, CA - Valley View Casino Center<br /> 02.03.18 - Tempe, AZ - Marquee Theatre<br /> 02.06.18 - Denver, CO - 1stBank Center<br /> 02.07.18 - Kansas City, MO - Arvest Bank Theatre<br /> 02.08.18 - Dallas, TX - Bomb Factory<br /> 02.10.18 - Atlanta, GA - World Congress Center<br /> 02.12.18 - Miami, FL - James L.

Those first few snowflakes are nice at first (the beauty of mother nature, blah, blah, blah), but it turns into nasty slush pretty damn quickly. The options: 1) spend months trudging through a frigid metropolis; skin dry, nose runny, jeans ruined, or 2) rack up the Uber bills. It’d be great if there was an escape hatch to a place flowing with strong <em>caipirinhas</em> and sweet, mellifluous electronic music vibes keeping winter’s brutality at&nbsp;bay.</p> <p>Don&#8217;t despair! That place exists, electronic fiends. In March — a month where spring says <i>&#8220;I’m here jk lol&#8221;</i> for most North Americans and Europeans — Dekmantel returns with its second, sunny São Paulo edition. Aside from the array of eclectic musicians, the two-day fest raises the bar with its unique venue: the abandoned Playcenter amusement park located in the middle of the city. (Easily accessible via&nbsp;trains!)</p> <p>That&#8217;s right: on March 3-4, 2018, dozens of of finest names in electronica — including chillwave mastermind Four Tet, brain rinsers Modeselektor, DJ stalwart Nina Kraviz, Detroit techno veterans Marcel Dettmann and Palms Trax, and the electrofunk grooves of Floating Points — will basically set up shop amid the ruins of <em>Jurassic Park</em>! Also joining the cabal is a host of local Brazilian acts to expand your musical horizons — including <a href="https://www.discogs.com/artist/3756-Marcos-Valle">Marcos Valle</a>, a Brazilian pop institution with almost five decades in the&nbsp;game.</p> <p><a href="http://www.dekmantelfestival.com.br/en/">Head here</a> for tickets and more details, and keep scrolling for a list of confirmed acts and a few shots of the incredibly spooky, <em>Scooby Doo</em>-esque location. (Many flights from the northern part of the world are under a grand – just sayin’ for all the jetsetters out there. And it goes without saying: you’ll return home with a rad tan. <i>Até já!</i>)</p> <p><iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fdkmntl%2Fvideos%2F1918155048211663%2F&amp;show_text=0&amp;width=560" width="560" height="315" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe></p> <p>Dekmantel Festival São Paulo 2018 confirmed&nbsp;acts:</p> <p>Four Tet, Modeselektor, Nina Kraviz, Marcel Dettmann, Floating Points, Mano Le Tough, Marcos Valle, Azymuth <span class="amp">&amp;</span> DJ Nuts, Os Mulheras Negras, Midland, Palms Trax, Mall Grab, Antal, Young Marco, DJ Stingray, Danny Daze, Peggy Gou, Vladimir Ivkovic, Lena Willikens, Maria Rita Stumpf, Randomer, Anthony Parasole, Kobosil, Jayda G, Courtesy, Dekmantel Soundsystem, Bufiman, Elena Colombi, Interstellar Funk, Selvagem, Davis, Zopelar, Tessuto, Tako, Izabel, John Gomez, Cashu, Carrot Green, Marcio Vermelho, Tata Ogan, Tahira, Kinkid, Barbara Boeing, Leeon <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Mansvr, Caio T, Gui Scott, Nascii,&nbsp;TYV</p> <p>A few photos of the Playcenter&nbsp;location:</p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/dek-1.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/dek-2.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/dek-3.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> Floating Points Four Tet Marcel Dettmann Marcos Valle Modeselektor Nina Kraviz Palms Trax Dekmantel Mon, 20 Nov 2017 17:17:04 +0000 Tristan Kneschke 160152 at https://www.tinymixtapes.com G Perico fucks up your year-end list by announcing 2 The Left, out next month; makes up for it a little by sharing new video for “Affiliated” 2017-11-20T10:46:58-05:00 https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/g-perico-announces-new-album-2-tha-left-and-shares-new-video-affiliated?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tmt Music <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/g-perico-1-828x620.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-Article_Width" width="828" height="620" /> <p><em>&#8220;South Central&#8217;s gangsta rap revivalist G Perico has had one hell of a 2017. He&#8217;s unleashed a string of releases that will surely have him on more than a few year-end lists&#8221; –&nbsp;Complex</em></p> <p><b><em>WRONG</em></b>. </p> <p>G Perico does not give a FUCK about your year-end&nbsp;list. </p> <p>You probably thought you had it all figured out, right? With G Perico’s name-making <cite>All Blue</cite> from April probably landing somewhere around the top of the heap as regards revisionist gangsta rap,&nbsp;eh? </p> <p>BUT! Now Perico has announced <cite>2 Tha Left</cite>, a whole <em>&#8216;NOTHER</em> new album, out December 8 on G Perico’s own label, So Way Out, distributed by&nbsp;Priority. </p> <p><cite>2 Tha Left</cite> will be Perico’s his third full-length release of the year, if you include the debut from G-Worthy, his project with Cardo and Jay&nbsp;Worthy. </p> <p>December 8, folks: The release date itself is a flex. (December albums, like G Perico’s leave us bean-counting music dweebs like ourselves in a tough spot: do you give Perico one <em>more</em> spot on your year-end list? Or, do you say &#8220;naw, man, that’s too late for this year’s list&#8221; and leave it off, maybe say it’ll be eligible next year? But <em>you know</em> you will have inevitably forgotten its significance by the time list season 2018 rolls around, so going this route effectively means you’ll be permanently relegating a worthy record to list&nbsp;limbo.)</p> <p>But honestly; GP doesn’t care about you OR what you put on your list. He made a record, and he’s releasing it without a thought for drop date skullduggery. And, hell, who knows? Maybe he’ll probably have another one ready to go in a few months. G Perico does not have time for the yearlong rotation of the online content hamster wheel! G Perico knows that any subdividing time is purely arbitrary. The wheel is an&nbsp;illusion.</p> <p>You can pre-order <cite>2 Tha Left</cite> <a href="https://priority.lnk.to/GPerico2Thaleft">here</a> and watch the video for “Affiliated” below&#8230;but G Perico probably doesn’t give a FUCK whether you do or&nbsp;don’t.</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/R_SCv8K1xeI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/2tl-cover-front.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p><cite>2 Tha Left</cite> tracklisting (doesn&#8217;t give a fuck if you read it or not,&nbsp;BTW):</p> <p>01.

November 20: a.k.a. the day that Scherk drops his new masterwork of experimental ambient doodles and sampled sketches, a bubbling hot spring of electronic sound art that’s chock full of gentle melodies which burst as they reach the&nbsp;surface. </p> <p>Released via London cassette label <a href="https://videogamemusic01.bandcamp.com">videogamemusic</a>, <em>Modelled</em>’s textures and samples intermingle with and repeat themselves, creating patterns which can then be &#8220;molded,&#8221; &#8220;shaped,&#8221; &#8220;sculpted,&#8221; &#8220;developed,&#8221; and other-synonyms-for-“modelled” (that L!) by the mind to exhort maximum engagement. The psychological results of all this constant stimulation is an inspiring <em>rush</em> of creativity as the brain begins to fire on all cylinders. Like: I’m going to go write a book, or paint a picture, or jog for miles! (I’m NOT going to go blow up Parliament or do anything remotely Fawkesian! I should just drop that&nbsp;reference.)</p> <p>You may recognize Scherk from 2015’s gorgeous self-released <a href="https://jonathanscherk.bandcamp.com"><em>Catalogue: 1-12</em></a> and/or the <a href="https://rvng.bandcamp.com/album/peaceful-protest-2"><em>Peaceful Protest</em></a> comp released earlier this year on RVNG. Heck, you might even know him personally (from what I understand, he’s a really ace&nbsp;guy). </p> <p>But regardless of whether you&#8217;re acquainted or not, you can order yourself a copy the cassette (each of which which includes a &#8220;unique silk-screened sleeve on super nice paper&#8221;) <a here="https://videogamemusic01.bandcamp.com/album/modelled">right here</a>, and you can also check out the album track “In a state of love” below, which should give you a nice aural sense of how the burgeoning romantic feelings toward another human being can sometimes feel like fizzy Alka-Seltzer tablets and ocean currents converging inside your&nbsp;body.</p> <p><iframe style="border: 0; width: 100%; height: 470px;" src="https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=4199230902/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=63b2cc/tracklist=false/track=3864013994/transparent=true/" seamless><a href="http://videogamemusic01.bandcamp.com/album/modelled">Modelled by Jonathan William&nbsp;Scherk</a></iframe> </p> <p><em>Modelled</em>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

The proclaimed “underground house hero” returns to <a href="https://superconsciousrecords.bandcamp.com/">Superconscious Records</a> this December 15 with a new double-dose of Ibiza-ready, 120 bpm <em>bangers</em>.</p> <p>Already finding himself <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzvLiwUK3R8&amp;t=1619s>spun</a> by the notorious Richard D. James, Fantastic Man looks to continue his hot streak with <cite>P.M.T.C.</cite>, a new pair of tunes that will pluck you right out of your trodden winter misery and drop you off in a paradise of the summery Spanish coast. Can&#8217;t you just feel that warm summer&nbsp;breeze&#8230;</p> <p><cite>P.M.T.C.</cite> promises more of the bright, psychedelic dance nostalgia that made last year’s <cite><a href="https://soundcloud.com/superconscious-records/sets/fantastic-man-rhythm-algorithm-scr006">Rhythm Algorithm</a></cite> EP such a hit. Listening to its buoyant B-side, “Cool Waters” (which you can stream below), it’s easy to see why the Australian DJ&#8217;s chops carry such cred in the house&nbsp;world. </p> <p>While it starts with a familiar yet beachy boom-bap pulse, the track&#8217;s halfway point loops in some vocal splices that shove the 7-minute track beyond pleasant into an enrapturing and toasty sonic world. Basically, if you’re looking for something to bring some summer to your winter DJ sets, this is the track for&nbsp;you. </p> <p>Pre-orders are <a href=”http://aboveboarddist.co.uk/superconscious-records/SCR010>up now</a> for the two-sided EP, so hop on those potatoes while they’re still hot and ready to&nbsp;party. </p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/mVEemfsbUbk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/unnamed_7_0.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p><cite>P.M.T.C.</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

Spencer Yeh gets a machine that’s been dead for twenty years to talk to him on new album The RCA Mark II 2017-11-17T14:04:02-05:00 https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/c-spencer-yeh-releases-new-album-rca-mark-ii?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tmt Music <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/yeh_front_cover_web_border.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-Article_Width" width="896" height="896" /> <p>If machines could talk, what would they say? Well&#8230;I guess some machines <em>do</em> talk: HAL 9000 apologizes to you when it cannot do something, the T-800 lets you know that it will be back, and my iPhone tells me, &#8220;Okay Jeremy, here is what I found for &#8216;Could Kristaps Porzingis block God&#8217;s shot?&#8217;&#8221; Even musical instruments can talk to you — in as much as the noise that results from plucking a string or pressing a key can be considered talking. But&#8230;what happens when you <em>WANT</em> a musical instrument to talk to you, only it&#8217;s been dead and non-operational for twenty years? This is what C. Spencer Yeh explores on his new album <cite>The RCA Mark II</cite>.</p> <p>The album&#8217;s namesake, the first-ever programmable synthesizer, was built and installed at Columbia University in New York City in 1959. It enjoyed an illustrious career, before becoming non-operational in 1997. Upon discovering the synthesizer while visiting a friend at Columbia, Yeh began experimenting with the machine acoustically: flipping switches, turning knobs, plugging and unplugging cables, and rubbing its surfaces (you know: like you <em>do</em>). Several sessions of recording these operations became the basis on which this album is built. The result: 12 tracks of the defunct machine&#8217;s clanking parts that are jagged, sparse, and strangely rhythmic. Despite being stripped of all its original, intended functions, Yeh has still found a way to make the RCA Mark II&nbsp;speak. </p> <p>Listen to &#8220;Track V&#8221; off of <cite>The RCA Mark II</cite> down below, and order the album itself <a href="http://www.primaryinformation.org/product/rca-mark-ii/">here</a>. <cite>The RCA Mark II</cite> is out <em>right now</em> on Primary&nbsp;Information.</p> <p><iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/352899893&amp;color=%23ff5500&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false&amp;show_teaser=true"></iframe></p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/yeh_rca_lp_front.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p><cite>The RCA Mark II</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting: </p> <p>01.

Entitled <cite>50 Backwoods</cite>, the record is out December 8 on <a href="https://foolsgoldrecs.com/">Fool’s Gold</a>! (<em>Extremely</em> Street Fighter <em>voice:</em>) <b>PERFECT!</b></p> <p>The record is being framed as “an experimental merger of hip-hop and old school electronic” which combines the twin sensibilities of Earl and Hook in a forward-thinking gumbo of all your favorite retro flavors (<em>aaaaaaaand</em> now you’re hungry). The album took a week to record in Brooklyn, because you know that old cliché about New York: &#8220;it’s the city that never takes longer than a week to record an album in.&#8221; It also sports features from Jacks, Wiki, and&nbsp;Melo-X.</p> <p>If you need more evidence those musty, old school sounds are back in style, I submit to you Exhibit B: the <cite>50 Backwoods</cite> tour! Check out all the dates below so you can embarrass yourself trying out all those pro footwork moves you found off YouTube in a venue-with-an-evocative-one-to-two-word-name near you! Listen to steaming slices of Earl and Nick&#8217;s independent work down below (sorry, now you&#8217;re hungry <em>again</em>!), and don’t forget to read the full <cite>50 Backwoods</cite> tracklist below, as well, because what else could you possibly have going on between now and early next&nbsp;month??</p> <p><iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/HIrX8bC01cY" frameborder="0" gesture="media" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iUPbn57ad84" frameborder="0" gesture="media" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><cite>50 Backwoods</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

That album, <i>Resurgam</i>, was in-turn shepherded by storied producer Flood, who laid some of his trademarked hi-def knob twisting upon&nbsp;it.</p> <p>But hey guess what folks? Even Flood needs a vacation sometimes! So when he took a few days off to go to the Glastonbury Festival, Fink and the gang said, &#8220;You know what? We&#8217;ve still got all these instruments.&#8221; Thus, the <i>Resurgam Acoustic Sessions</i> EP was born, featuring three album tracks redone by the band in a husky all-wooden style, plus a brand new song, &#8220;Divide,&#8221; which TMT is pleased as Flood-on-vacation to be premiering for you today down below. Take a load off and&nbsp;enjoy!</p> <p>In other great news: <i>Resurgam Acoustic Session</i> is available from R&#8217;COUP&#8217;D/Ninja Tune RIGHT NOW.

Well, hopefully fans of the proud Detroit native aren&#8217;t STILL sitting in front of their computers in anticipation, because I&#8217;m not sure about the exact biological process, but I&#8217;m <em>almost positive</em> that, after spending so much time in a stationary, seated position, dense spiderwebs (full of spiders) start forming around your internal&nbsp;organs. </p> <p>That documentary never appeared, and there&#8217;s a chance that it <em>will</em> never appear, according to the official Twitter detailing from Danny Brown himself. As you can see below, last week, he stated pretty plainly documentary is just straight-up &#8220;not coming out,&#8221; and that it was essentially shelved for reasons that have yet to be fully explained by anybody. The whole thing&#8217;s kind of weird, considering the fact that the doc actually received a limited premiere last year at a theater in New&nbsp;York.</p> <p>We&#8217;ll forgo the speculation here at TMT, but it definitely sucks for Danny as well as the folks (like Director Andrew Cohn) who put in the effort behind the scenes to make sure Brown&#8217;s interesting story and personality were showcased in a memorable way. Ah well. So it goes. Time to boycott Apple, if you want. Such is life.&nbsp;Goodbye.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Crying right now because of it &#8230; really hurt about the whole&nbsp;situation</p> <p>&mdash; Danny Brown (@xdannyxbrownx) <a href="https://twitter.com/xdannyxbrownx/status/928507716938686464?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 9,&nbsp;2017</a></p></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">Pretty&nbsp;much</p> <p>&mdash; Danny Brown (@xdannyxbrownx) <a href="https://twitter.com/xdannyxbrownx/status/928514882030489600?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 9,&nbsp;2017</a></p></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">It’s not coming out I’m&nbsp;sorry</p> <p>&mdash; Danny Brown (@xdannyxbrownx) <a href="https://twitter.com/xdannyxbrownx/status/928514998065909760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 9,&nbsp;2017</a></p></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script><p> <iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dd1AT37iHX8" frameborder="0" gesture="media" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> Danny Brown Thu, 16 Nov 2017 22:27:07 +0000 Mike Reid 160197 at https://www.tinymixtapes.com
