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.

Then I’ve got just the assemblage of audio recordings for you: it’s the new collaborative album between footwork fiend <a href="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/artists/dj-earl">DJ Earl</a> and analog authority Nick Hook. 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!

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 East Man (Basic Rhythm, Imaginary Forces) uses dancehall, drum n’ bass, and techno to minister to the London youth on debut LP for Planet Mu 2017-11-16T18:01:33-05:00 https://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/east-man-basic-rhythm-imaginary-forces-announces-debut-lp-planet-mu?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tmt Music <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/ant-650x855.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-Article_Width" width="650" height="855" /> <p>These days, plenty of albums feature guest performers, but&#8230;<em>how many</em> releases come to mind in which a world-renowned UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR offers their thematically cohesive thoughts in the liner&nbsp;notes? </p> <p>If you&#8217;re familiar with London-based producer Anthoney Hart&#8217;s music up until now, you know that Hart initially started out under the Imaginary Forces moniker; then, more recently, Basic Rhythm was introduced as the dark-side conduit for an appreciated throwback to his old school pirate radio days. Now, Hart&#8217;s getting meta with his London connection on his debut album as East Man, entitled <cite>Red, White <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Zero</cite>. </p> <p>In addition to his friendship with renowned cultural theorist <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Gilroy">Paul Gilroy</a> serving as an inspiration for the new project, the <cite>Red, White <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Zero</cite> LP features local London MCs on nearly every track. Those MCs serve as a representation of a maligned London youth — a subject that Gilroy has spent a fair amount of his academic career writing about and&nbsp;discussing. </p> <p>Musically, <cite>Red, White <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Zero</cite> showcases an ostensibly new hybrid genre of &#8220;grime, dancehall, drum <span class="amp">&amp;</span> bass and techno&#8221; that Hart has seen fit to label &#8220;Hi Tek.&#8221; Hear the track &#8220;Look <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Listen&#8221; below for an audible example of how East Man negotiates all these vaguely-related sub-genres for&nbsp;yourself. </p> <p>The album is out February 16 on Planet Mu. Pre-order it <a href="https://planetmu.bleepstores.com/release/91844-east-man-red-white-zero">here</a>; then, take a deep dive with Professor Gilroy in his full statement about the&nbsp;album:</p> <blockquote><p>London’s young people have been seen as a problem by governments for many generations now. Their distinctive street cultures stretch back into the nineteenth century when, just like today, a stylish public presence signified danger to respectable people. At that time, Britain’s class conflicts were being re-made amidst all the glorious fruits of a global empire. Divisions like class and sex had different shapes and tempos that hardly resemble the machinery of our increasingly networked and unequal world. Religion, racism and nationalism were all important, but work, exploitation and poverty supplied the fiery core of&nbsp;politricks.</p> <p>These days, Britain’s imperial wealth and prestige are long gone. Today’s young people are excluded and marginalized, confined and criminalized, yet they remain at the heart of the vital, energetic best of our city. Their energy and imagination drive London’s convivial culture. They duck and dive just like their predecessors. They hustle, they suffer and they survive. Even where knives are common, most of the problems that come up get resolved without murderous violence. The defining experience of their precarious situation is more likely to be fear or anxiety than warfare between gangs. Their violence is more likely to turn inwards on to their loved ones and family members. There are many forms of self harm and self&nbsp;medication.</p> <p>Yet the space in which those youthful lives unfold has contracted. The scale on which life is lived has shrunk. Moving around can be expensive. Surveillance is constant. Dignity and certainty are difficult to find and hold on to. It can be hard to feel comfortable outside the spaces and places you know best. Those familiar circuits are marked out by the roadside shrines of dead flowers that show just how vulnerable you can quickly&nbsp;become.</p> <p>We have been losing London to Babylon but we are busy making a new place. The edges of the city have become fertile. The weeds grow up explosively between palisaded concrete boxes and the litter-strewn greenery. This is not zones 1 and 2 where houses and flats are capital rather than buildings to live in. The music that comes out of that edgy world isn’t what it was a generation ago, but it’s still fundamental — necessary for&nbsp;life.</p> <p>These shocking sounds can be a part of healing and repair while staying faithful to the pressures that forged them. Musicians can’t make a living from their creativity, but their listeners can’t understand this historical moment unless they get to grips with its local rules, meanings and poetry. This is not America. Even without words, this music speaks for itself and tells a story. It calls out to be understood while seeking ways to escape&nbsp;interpretation.</p> <p>We are always more than either this or that. We are more than either black or&nbsp;white.</p> <p>-Paul Gilroy&nbsp;2017.</p></blockquote> <p><iframe width="100%" height="300" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/356132195&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&amp;visual=true"></iframe></p> <p><center><br /> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/ziq395_east_man_1400px-650x650.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p></p></center></p> <p><cite>Red, White <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Zero</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting: </p> <p>01.

Taking cues from the Romanticism movement by emphasizing emotion and individualism, <cite>Romaplasm</cite> looks to tackle the &#8220;gnawing chaos of life with a focus on beauty and the sublime.&#8221; To further quote the press release, &#8220;It’s about centering the things that are important to you, and doing so in the most honest way possible, even if that means fucking things up a bit along the&nbsp;way.&#8221;</p> <p>Get an idea of what that all means by watching the amusing music video for <cite>Romaplasm</cite> cut &#8220;Out,&#8221; below. While down there, make sure to also check out all of the upcoming spring 2018 Baths tour dates, or else the whole first part of this post will have been a waste to write. Here&#8217;s hoping no one on tour catches dysentery, gets bitten by a rattle snake, or falls in the water while attempting to caulk the wagon and float across the&nbsp;river. </p> <p><cite>Romaplasm</cite> is out November 17 (a.k.a. &#8220;tomorrow&#8221;) via Anticon and can be purchased <a href="https://www.anticon.com/item/romaplasm">here</a> right now (a.k.a.&nbsp;&#8220;today&#8221;).</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/j0bFmDt2n2E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <figure class="figure--Article_Width figure--imagecache"> <img src="https://www.tinymixtapes.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/Article_Width/1711/71vrt7kcyzl._sl1200_.jpg" alt="" /><br /> </figure> <p><cite>Romaplasm</cite>&nbsp;tracklisting:</p> <p>01.

Oneohtrix Point Never has just announced a new project titled <cite>myRiad</cite>. Set to debut next year in New York, the work is being described as &#8220;a hyperstitial &#8216;concertscape&#8217; imagined from the perspective of an alien&nbsp;intelligence.&#8221; </p> <p>Since nothing <i>truly</i> exists without the legitimization that a press release provides, here&#8217;s more information, straight from the&nbsp;source:</p> <blockquote><p>Pulling from long-standing fascinations with film and television tropes, abstract sculpture, game ephemera, poetry, apocryphic histories, internet esoterica, and philosophies of being, myRiad generates a conceptual spectrum that is as much a speculation on the unthinkable future as it is an allegory for the current disquiet of a civilization out of balance with its environment. Oriented around behaviorally choreographed set pieces and lighting, the theatrical installation takes a directly formal approach to themes latent in his work by placing the audience inside the architecture of the music itself. Using the scale of the Wade Thompson Drill Hall to explore disorienting relationships between space and sound, myRiad mutates forms of live musical&nbsp;performance.</p></blockquote> <p><cite>myRiad</cite> will premiere May 22-24 as a &#8220;four-part epochal song cycle&#8221; at New York&#8217;s Park Avenue Armory, presented by Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York 2018.

His UK representative confirmed the news to the&nbsp;Guardian.</p> <p>Gustav Åhr, who grew up in Long Beach, New York, was reportedly taken to hospital following an overdose, according to music manager Adam Grandmaison. In a video Åhr posted online hours before his death, he said he had taken prescription drugs and other substances, saying: “I’m good, I’m not&nbsp;sick”.</p> <p>The rap world has paid tribute to him, with Diplo writing on Twitter that Åhr “had so much more to do man he was constantly inspiring me”, and fellow producer Marshmello writing: “Peep was the nicest person. Hanging out with him, talking to him about music, the song ideas we were going to do together and touring was so amazing.”&nbsp;[&#8230;]</p></blockquote> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/PKalQrHXayI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3rkJ3L5Ce80" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></p> Lil Peep Thu, 16 Nov 2017 14:55:24 +0000 Shane Mack 160290 at https://www.tinymixtapes.com
