Cut Chemist (Jurassic 5, Ozomatli) has announced the release of his 12-inch vinyl EP titled Madman. Earmilk premiered the news of Madman, which features musical contributions from Mumbles, Gone Beyond and Deantoni Parks, by premiering the video for the EP’s title track.
Described by Cut Chemist as “a hypnotizing collaboration between myself and French electronic pioneer Vox Populi!” the “Madman” video showcases a series of clips put together by found footage video artist Tom Fitzgerald and pushes a sense of whimsical hysteria down the spine of viewers. He continues, stating, “its dark…yet the time signature changes give it a sense of playfulness.”
The EP represents the first available content for purchase since Pitchfork launched the Die Cut campaign. The long-awaited follow up to The Audience’s Listening, Die Cut will be Cut Chemist’s first full-length album since 2006. Madman will be available starting November 3, 2017. The additional 3 songs on the EP are available only on the physical vinyl release.

Club, Entertainment Weekly, and a rare perfect score from Alternative Press.

Co-produced with fellow Copenhageners and dance music luminaries, Kenton Slash Demon, the new album sees the trio, tapping into the same musical restlessness that formed them, making the band incorporate new modes creativity, songwriting, and production. This is probably WhoMadeWho’s most cohesive and daring album to date; a testament to three maverick musicians working at the apex of their game.
The track “Dynasty” will be released at the same time as the pre-order start for the album on 3rd November.2017. The associated remix-bundle featuring high-profile mixes from Roosevelt, Denis Horvat & Jimi Jules will follow on 17th November 2017.
Ahead of their European Tour, Grandbrothers have shared an atmospheric and visually striking new video for “From a Distance”, taken from the group’s latest album Open, which was released on October 20th via City Slang.
Speaking about the video, director Dan Medhurst said: “The film is a loose adaptation of the ancient Greek myth of Sisyphus who struggled to push a large rock up a mountain only for it to roll back down and for him to start again each day. It tells a tail of eternal struggle for our lead character (played by Mark Wingett) who appears to be locked in a convoluted journey for victory, but ultimately ends up back where he started. It also plays with the concept of eternal recurrence; That the universe and all existence has already occurred and will continue to reoccur infinitely. I chose to shoot in the Brecon Beacons at night to emphasize a feeling of total isolation. We used a high powered custom built LED attached to a drone to light our character and shot on 50 year old, Russian anamorphic lenses to create haunting, unusual visuals which play with the idea of distance and anonymity.”

Christopher Port today shares his Everything In Quotes “DARK” EP, out via Future Classic x Pieater. A sound that’s best described as a refreshing take on UKG, the EP includes two additional tracks, ‘Uppers’ and ‘Raver VIP’ as well as previously released single ‘Nobody Chose You’ and most recent track ‘Baby It’s Not My Will’. Dark, brooding and subdued, Everything In Quotes “DARK” is marked as a highly impressive contribution to the electronic music landscape.
Speaking on the EP, Christopher Port says:
“The name “Everything in Quotes” is taken from a lecture by fashion designer, Virgil Abloh, in which he talks about architecture, creativity and fashion amongst other things. One of the most important things for me as an artist is being able to have a direct line to the listener. I want you to hear my music exactly how I made it, yet still be able to perceive it in your own way. To me “Everything in Quotes” personifies this. You are hearing my music in the exact form I created it, similar to a direct quote. I believe this makes the connection between the artist and the listener much stronger. I’ve always been drawn to the darker side of art. I love music that has a sense of foreboding, melancholy and unease. This comes in so many different forms and shades, much more than I have presented on these tracks.”
With the EP, also comes Christopher Port’s a special visualizer which doubles as its own unique rolling look-book video showcasing the producer’s fashion debut with his own brand of hand-sewn unisex shirts available for sale as a limited, one-off item.
Christopher Port says of the line, “These tops are the tangible affirmation of the music from my EP “Dark”. This video for me is a process film that shows the creation of the prototypes that informed the finished pieces with four distinct sections that are based off the four EP tracks. The video also works as a visual response to the music by my long-term collaborator and incredible director/editor Hamish Mitchell.”. Check out the design here and watch the video for ‘Baby It’s Not My Will’ below:
This November, Christopher Port will embark on a AUS tour. 2018 will see the release of his second instalment of Everything In Quotes, with a follow-up EP “LIGHT”, along with its corresponding fashion line. Stay tuned for more on this soon.
