Romare – Come Close To Me (Live Session 1)

Just in time for Summer’s warm up arrives Romare’s ‘Come Close To Me (Live Session 1)’ a hazy, pulled-apart live edit of the single taken from his 2016 LP Love Songs: Part Two. Along with the track, which rides out like a slow-burning exercise in self-sampling, is a witty, 80’s inspired music video drenched in analog VHS sheen and complete with a blurry Mazda speeding off into a fading dusk. “From our first phone call discussing the concept for ‘Come Closer’ [Come Close To Me’ – Ed]”, says director Greg Barnes “Archie (Romare) and I were on the same page. We both wanted to push the limits of what a performance-based, session style video could be, and it was clear that meant smoke, lasers, and his Mazda.”

The single and video are released today (premiered via Crack) on Ninja Tune, just as Romare prepares for his forthcoming headline show at KOKO on 11th November – his biggest and dare we say most impressive performance to date– which will see him showcase his disco-heavy cuts with a live band in addition to DJ sets by Romare himself and a string of other companions late into the night.

Nicolas Jaar – TRANSITION

Boiler Room presents ‘TRANSITION’ – a singular visual experience by the visionary Chilean-American artist and the world’s leading underground music channel.

Shot in Brooklyn at the now-defunct DIY venue Aviv in September 2016, the film takes a cue from Jaar’s semi fictitious network of interlocking radio stations as well as his latest studio album ‘Sirens’.

From its very first enigmatic scene to the unmissable ending, ‘TRANSITION’ is an unscripted POV journey into one night in NY at a transitional time in America.

Carl Craig – Versus LP

Carl_Craig_if1042LP_3500px_zpsuujasvyz

CARL CRAIG presents… VERSUS. FEATURING FRANCESCO TRISTANO LES SIECLES ORCHESTRA CONDUCTED BY FRANÇOIS-XAVIER ROTH

Stream Carl Craig “Versus” on NPR and read the story of the record.

Versus is a work in progress, a perfect encapsulation of InFiné’s philosophy, which serves a double duty as a platform to foster hybridization between genres, and also as the label’s ten-year anniversary gift to itself. From an initial recording in 2010, the project evolved into a full studio album containing two original compositions by Francesco Tristano and symphonic versions of Craig classics, reworked in the studio by the man himself. The much awaited new album from the Detroit techno producer will finally be available worldwide on May 5th.

London Grammar – Rooting For You

london-grammar

On New Years Day, British trio London Grammar released their spine-tingling new track and performance video for “Rooting For You.” “New Year, new music” the band simply stated on their Facebook, Instagramand Twitter from Australia where they had headlined on New Years Eve at the annual Falls Festival in Byron Bay.

“Rooting For You,” is the first piece of new music to come from the band since 2014 and is available worldwide now on all digital platforms. Their breathtaking new performance video — directed by BISON — is available via the bands website http://www.londongrammar.com and can also be viewed here:

London Grammar emerged in 2013 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, If You Wait, and quickly went on to becoming one of the most exciting international breakthrough acts of recent times. Winning a prestigious Ivor Novello Award for their hit single ‘Strong’ and being nominated for a BRIT Award, the trio have since sold-out multiple headlining tours worldwide and have performed on high profile US TV shows such as ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as well as the former NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and CBS’s The Late Show with David Letterman back in 2014.

“Rooting For You” is available on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.

Tycho – Division (Remixes)

tycho

Today, Tycho shares two new remixes of their first single ‘Division’ from the recent album Epoch, which is set for physical release on Jan 20th via Ghostly International.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith — fresh from her Pitchfork Best New Music-rated collaboration album with Suzanne Ciani, Sunergy — delivers a melting ambient epic while Heathered Pearls, a Ghostly staple, bolsters the dance elements of the original. In addition to the two remixes Tycho is also sharing a video for ‘Division’ that was filmed lived at their Red Rocks Amphitheatre performance on September 17 featuring official audio from the album.

Stream ‘Division (Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith Remix)’ & ‘Division (Heathered Pearls Remix)’:

Watch ‘Division’ live at Red Rocks (ft. official audio):

Epoch is the final album in the trilogy beginning with 2011’s Dive, then 2014’s Awake and culminating with this year’s Epoch (Ghostly International). This period between Dive and Epoch marks a significant maturation for Scott Hansen’s continually expanding project, one that has taken him from a solo performer to fronting a live 4-piece band on large stages across the world. Epoch hones the sonic aesthetic of Dive while drawing on the kinetic energy of Awake, it explores darker themes and new musical territory. Epoch is available digitally now and for physical pre-order now due out January 20.

This January, Tycho will embark on a world tour. The tour will begin on Jan 7 in Oakland, CA at the Fox Theater. From there Tycho will travel across four continents including Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
