Cosmic synths and twinkling atmospherics, Joe Goddard’s remix of Busy P’s latest offering ‘Genie’ is an addictive injection of extra texture and faster tempos. Premiered via Notion, the remix is the second to come in the series following closely behind the experimental delights of Reckonwrong and proceeding what promises to be a bonafide floor-filler from KDA.
Almost 2 years after his last release on the label with ‘Gipsy Life’, ‘Genie’ marks Busy P’s 6th release on and return to Ed Banger records. Recorded between Threesome Studio in Paris and Mayer’s studio in LA, the groove laden and infectious love song sees Busy P partners up with long-time friend, Mayer Hawthorne.
Genie feat. Mayer Hawthorne is out now.
Ejeca aka Garry McCartney is one of Belfast’s best musical exports in recent years from the growing scene in Northern Ireland. His down-to-earth attitude has allowed him to gain recognition from his musical peers and with constant solid releases it’s always been music first, hype later.

Crooked Man’s debut album was one of the landmark releases for DFA in 2016. Crooked Man is Richard Barratt of Sheffield England, one half of Bleep music pioneers Sweet Exorcist (Warp Records).
This remix collection is Volume 1 in a series of forthcoming collections that revisit key tracks from the LP, reinventing them into headier dance floor explorations, without abandoning the undeniable pop hooks that set this whole release apart from your typical full length dance LP.
Whatever/Whatever remixing “I’ll Be Loving You”. Whatever/Whatever are a remix duo that includes famed DJ and musician Justin Strauss.
Juan Maclean remixing epic album closer “Happiness”. The vocals for “Happiness” were actually sung by Amy Douglas, also the singer in Peach Melba with Juan Maclean. So this remix brings the everything full circle in a tidy way.
Barker & Baumecker remixing “Fools & Fanatics”. This duo are recognized musical leaders in the Berlin techno scene originating out of the world of Ostgut Ton Records and the Berghain club. 2016 saw them releasing their epic 2nd LP entitled Turns.
Remixes forthcoming for Volume 2 include Tee Mango, Luke Solomon & Lovefingers.
Crooked Man is currently hard at work on the follow up album, due out in 2017 on DFA Records.
After releasing their debut full length Album on Kompakt last year, Hunter/Game return to Just This with another immersive offering.
On the ‘Dead Soul EP’ the duo continue to refine their expressive yet subtly arranged sound. The title track unfolds slowly, sculpting the melody, texture and suspense. Joey Anderson’s take on ‘Dead Soul’ is airy and atmospheric without losing its pulsing flow. ‘Isolation’ covers a broad spectrum and is filled with contrasts in which intense bass interacts with a delicate and breathy melody.
Balance is key to Hunter/Game’s music and this EP is no exception.

Following last week’s premiere of ‘Samurai’ via Stereogum, the prolific production duo Red Axes share an intoxicating 7 minute 30 seconds epic remix of the forthcoming album’s title track. A laid-back hum of brass over a gentle percussion; the instrumental is sprinkled with twinkling sound effects, cosmic synths and chopped segments of the original vocal. This is 100% what a remix should be.
A very personal and conceptual body of work, Joakim’s 6th album Samurai is about the artist’s journey between NY, Tokyo and Paris. In writing, Joakim was inspired by a range of influences from the literary (Mishima’s ‘Hagakure: Samurai Ethics & Modern Japan’), to the sonic (home-made electronic and “new age”’ style music) and the circumstantial (Japan and New York).
Catch Joakim at The Nest on 18th March, 2017.
Samurai is out via Tigersushi / Because on 17th March, 2017.
