JessyLanza_1


In September Jessy Lanza released her LP Pull My Hair Back on Hyperdub and now we have the pleasure of her sharing a playlist on ISO50. One of my favorite songs of the year has been 5785021 and the video for Kathy Lee couldn’t be a better example of how its ideas and not budget that makes a memorable video. So, enjoy this playlist she shared with us and you can support by buying her LP.

TRACKLIST

Fantasia ft. Kelly Rowland and Missy ElliotWithout Me
This song is like I’m listening to ‘blame it’ and ‘beez in the trap’ at the same time. It’s fucking amazing.

LegoweltTeen Romance
I love how this track makes me want to dance and gives me anxiety at the same time

Terror Danjah feat. MelekaYou Make Me Feel
This song sounds like the future but it came out two years ago. Someone showed it to me last week and my life feels more complete now.

Le1fPlush
This whole mixtape is so good and it’s hard to pick one track, but the drums and piano on ‘plush’ make it a stand-out for me.

Apparently this photo went viral a few months back, but I’ve just stumbled upon it and had to share it. There’s something about it that is truly mesmerizing. She’s certainly not hard on the eyes, but when you consider the NASA era it’s from, the photo takes on an especially inspiring and poignant tone.

Anna holds the title of “first mother in space.” She joined NASA as an astronaut candidate in 1978, and a little over a year prior to the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, Anna flew aboard Discovery on it’s second flight on November 8, 1984. The photo was taken for a Life Magazine story.

After the Challenger explosion she did not fly again, but she continues to work to this day at NASA as a station CAPCOM (Capsule Communicator) on the Orion Project.

You guys know Rory right? he posts on the blog, usually beautifully colored vintage car and motorcycle material, also drums for Tycho and Com Truise. Well his album “Themes” is out on Moodgadget in November under the name Nitemoves. We’ll stream the whole album on the blog in 2 weeks, definitely worth your time.

Museum of Love is a new hopeful for the DFA label, has a big hint of Matthew Dear in it.

Loving this trancey work from Miracle on Planet-Mu, a nice poppy length which gives it that replay ability.

Found this dub done by Pional, dub edit are a big go-to during the winter for playlists for yourself.

Top 5 Overlooked Albums of 2013: #4

^Only snippet preview

Lawrence has been a favorite of mine over the last 10 years creating structure to the mellow melodic end of Detroit techno. He has stayed true to himself and his sound so the quality of music runs deep in his catalog. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED album.

Almost a decade after his last Dial Records album, after an enormous amount of releases on labels like Pampa, Mule Musiq, Ghostly International, Kompakt, Styrax, and many more, Lawrence continues with a wonderful selection of extraterrestrial dance music: Films & Windows. From the first sparkle to the last whisper, this album is dedicated to “Angels at Night.” As the album title suggests, Lawrence as a cineaste and voyeur is inspired by an endless number of screened movies and real-life films — some only appearing while watching landscapes, stars and people passing by in front of a train window. While wondering at moments like this, strange ideas and colorful sounds occur inside the mind of the musician. The ideal approach would be to transfer these ideas into music without any norms or rules — but there is the club and it was always there. So no matter where Films & Windows started, it should always arrive at the dancefloor with frenzied people and other addicts of the outer-world’s soul. For over 20 years, clubs and nights out at places such as the Front, the ’90s WMF, Golden Pudel Club, Click, Sud Electronic, Panorama Bar, Robert Johnson, Smallville, Yellow, Precious Hall, etc., have been at the center of Lawrence’s universe. House music, techno, alien-funk, the unheard, the unseen — it is all magic everywhere.

PURCHASE LAWRENCE ON VINYL / DIGITAL

Also, he runs one of the most well branded record shops in the world in Hamburg called Smallville.

Moodgadget presents a new series of split singles, featuring disco edits from Brooklyn Bass helmsman Evan Michael, and introducing the secret edit project of veteran Moodgadget designer, Alex Koplin, as Choplin. An update to one of the SOS Band’s classic hits, “After All” adds a bass heavy push and pull with minor chords and glitzy arpeggiation creating a new dynamic. “Never Forget” presents a re-working of Dexter Wansel honing in on an impeccable groove you might have inadvertently passed over in the original. – Moodgadget
