What a glorious night. I just came back from an awesome SAVAGES concert at Botanique -tell you more later- to the glorious news that you can now pre-listen the full new Daft Punk album.
So without further ado : find the tracklist and the link after the jump!
we are not in the habit of posting leaks and unofficial uploads. But this
bandcamp link has been up for a full day, and although there has been an official statement saying this is not the long-awaited debut album, this collection of demos (?) is still live, which makes me doubt whether the official label (XL) has any problems with it. My guess is these are Jai Paul’s scraps falling off the table, while we wait for the full, no doubt scrumptious spread that awaits us all. Well worth the listen and download, whatever it turns out to be.
It’s drop day! “Oolala, Mazeltov, what can I say?”
Le1f takes the lead in New York club rap with his own particular brand of gusto and guffow-inducing lyrics on the follow-up to “Dark York”: “Fly Zone”. The beats are .. well … fly … and I love it that in 2013 I can download a solid hiphop mixtape of an MC that pronounces “soft” as “sowft” and hands me hooks like “get your bunz up” to compliment my hefty collection of “get your gunz up” tracks.
Chromatics’ Johnny Jewel just posted the perfect soundtrack to the soggy excuse for snow that’s halfheartedly sloshing against my window right now.
While Charli XCX is finishing one of the most eagerly awaited debut albums of 2012/2013, we can warm ourselves to this dreamy little audio appetiser called ‘super ultra’, including beats by How to Dress Well (‘Cold Nites’) and some eighties-drenched girl-on-girl action (‘Moments in Love’).
Hours and hours of sounds to accompany you on the miles you have to go before you sleep.
The beats are dirty. The lyrics are filthy. You should download this now and sully up for the weekend.
Clams Casino is probably on of the hottest producer of the moment, launching A$SAP ROCKY into the hip hop stratosphere and saving Lana Del Rey from the brink of hipster oblivion in less than a year. His instrumental mixtapes are still essential downloads (stream his mastered tape after the jump), and now there’s a smooth 25-minute mix of his own classics and some unreleased gems to add to the legacy. Originally delivered to the doorstep of Benj B’s BBC 1 radio show, now ready for your ripping pleasure.
I have spent my morning listening to the entire new Chromatics double album Kill For Love and it is not really improving my mental health.
Justice made a rifftastic mini-mix for BBC’s Annie Mac: a five minute name-that-tune geekfest, no doubt inspired by uncle David & uncle Stephen from Soulwax.
