Abstraxion – Break Of Lights [2013]

London based Harold Boué has just released "Break Of Lights", his first album as Abstraxion via New York’s Have A Killer Time label. The French producer has been releasing music on his own Biologic Records, with a total of seven 12-inches to his name. The upcoming album is made up of ten as-yet unreleased tracks. Parisian veteran Chloé has been enlisted to supply vocals on opener "White Rain," while Denmark’s Astrid Engberg lends her voice to "Every Night I’m Lying." Full of melancholic reveries and hybrid explorations, Break of Lights reveals Abstraxion to be a standout producer and true obsessive to his craft. 
“The most important thing for me in this record was finding my own sounds and combinations to build a whole new world… I wanted my album to be coherent and reflect what my project is about so that people could get into that timeless spaceship.” 
Below you can watch the video for the title track, which is out now backed with remixes from It’s a Fine Line and Tim Paris (stream available below). The LP is also released this week on Other People, the subscription imprint from Nicolas Jaar, backed with an amazing remix by Factory Floor (also stram available below).

Factory Floor – Turn It Up

London industrialists Factory Floor will release their self-titled debut LP on DFA on September 9. Ahead of the release, they.have kindly teased us with a freebie. ‘Turn It Up’ is the opener to the LP, and it’s an effective compromise between the band’s taste for dirty analogue sonics and the dance-punk gloss of their new label home. In case you missed it, check out the collaboration with post-punk composer and saxophonist Peter Gordon, here. Hear ‘Turn It Up’ below and head to Rolling Stone to download it.
