Delphic, Doubt and Acolyte

To say that 2009 has been a good year for Manchester dance outfit Delphic, would be an understatement. The band have had a slew of highlights which include their single “Counterpoint” released this past April 2009 via Belgian electronic imprint R & S Records and produced by the UK’s Ewan Pearson. “Counterpoint (Delphic’s En Route Remix)”, appeared on compilation #7 of the chic French indie label Kitsuné Maison. Their second single “This Momentary” via Kitsuné, was released this past August, and shortly after, a Kitsuné Maison tour across the UK followed.

The BBC News have declared Delphic as one the “Sounds of 2010″, and there’s big things on the horizon as Delphic are set to release their exciting debut album ‘Acolyte’, on the 11th of January next year. Their third single “Doubt”, will be released digitally on Sunday the 3rd of January 2010, and physically on Monday 4th January 2010. Riton and Ramadanman have already had their hand at creating remixes of “Doubt”, and now Delphic is giving YOU a chance to whip up a phenomenal remix of “Doubt”, one that will be totally mind blowing––Have fun with it!!!

Chief Boima – African By the Bay EP

Artwork by Lupo Avanti

Featured here not long ago and further represented by the The Guardian in the UK, our Bay Area representative Chief Boima has just released something we teased at last time. Under the Dutty Artz banner, Boima has put together a remarkably fresh collection of Rap/Hip-Hop re-workings that utilize African rhythmic and melodic sensibilities. Song include Birdman (”Money To Blow” feat. Drake and Lil Wayne), Akon (”Right Now”), The Jacka (”Glamorous Lifestyle” feat. Andre Nickatina), Fabo & T-Pain (”Own Step”).

If this doesn’t quite fill your need for Chief Boima productions, keep your eyes peeled for his forthcoming Techno Rumba EP, out on Dutty Artz soon. The EP will feature Boima’s original productions and remix work from DJ/rupture & Matt Shadetek.

Chief Boima – African By the Bay EP (62mb Zip File)

Here to greet your winter woes is “Mittelschmerz.” Mixed live by me, The Crooked Clef, this mix features a big frozen lake, but hopefully somewhere in the middle you will find a small hole with which to look at fish and other wildlife. Guaranteed to be genre and ear busting, this mix isn’t so much a warm winter fire as it is a firey shot of slightly overpriced whisky. Choke it down.

The Crooked Clef – Mittelschmerz

01. Ben Frost – Through The Glass Of The Roof
02. Nine Inch Nails – 20 Ghosts III
03. Shackleton – I Want To Eat You
04. King Midas Sound – Meltdown
05. Timeblind – Strategy Decay
06. Nate Mars – Higher To The Bass
07. Scuba – Twitch (Jamie Vex’d Remix)
08. Hudson Mohawke – FUSE
09. Jeremih – Birthday Sex (Hovatron Remix)

Hot City Bass

With great pleasure I deliver to you a production force that has completely restructured the face of this already altered, off-axis, dance mutation slowly beginning to hit floors worldwide. Not much is known about Hot City, beyond the fact that everything they touch turns into a searing garage swung-out glitch house masterpiece.

Hot City – Head Work

Hot City has been getting massive recognition for some of this past year’s largest releases, and haunted bass house monster tune “Setting Me Free” up for grabs on RCRD LBL. Keep a sharp eye out for more tracks in 2010 including a very special bit on Fabric’s Elevator Music Vol.1

The Count & Sinden – Elephant 1234 (Hot City Remix)

Crookers ft. Kelis – No Security (Hot City Remix)

Here are a couple of new remixes – taking the same approach, Hot City delivers a sweaty house transformation laced with those addictive percussive vocal hits that seem to rhythmically emerge from the track for air. I seriously can’t get enough.

Sometimes you just need GLOVES

Winter has finally hit Europe last week. For someone like me who almost feels more comfortable on snow than on concrete roads, this is a blessing.

Many people don’t understand this. They don’t like the cold. Let me tell you though: it doesn’t get better than a beautiful and sunny day out with crisp air, wrapped in thick layer of clothes while good music keeps you warm from within.

Very useful for this purpose: the GLOVES remix of Miami Horror’s latest single “Sometimes”. Listen to it here…

Miami Horror – Sometimes (G.L.O.V.E.S remix)

… and then follow this link to sign up for Miami Horror’s mailing list to get the track.  They will be giving away t-shirts to subscribers in the following weeks too. A good X-mas present, right?

Support Miami Horror and GLOVES by buying the digital single on Beatport. Keep up with them on Myspace (here and here).

MISHKA presents Keep Watch Vol. XIV: Jack Beats

Just finished off listening to round six in the latest Mishka ‘Keep Watch’ series, Volume XIV, with Jack Beats. Yes, I’ve listened six times. Definitely a favorite at the moment, this mix comes chock-full of exclusive unreleased edits, re-edits and remixes by the London-based duo. From start to finish, the entire 40 mins spans a variety of styles from some older songs you’ve loved and some you’ve yet to hear. Jack Beats are currently finishing off their last remix of the year to start work on their debut album which will be released in May 2010. Brace yourselves!!
