Wild Beasts Sweet Spot & The Field Remix

Posted by Jakub

Domino Recordings has a special album on their hands from Wild Beasts. One of the tracks on the LP Sweet Spot has been on repeat this weekend, dynamic and sensual but not too soft to keep a crowd from having fun with it.

The Field offered his remix duties and came up with his classic chord changing emotional journey.

Sunday Sci-Fi Vol. 5

This week I decided to do a feature on Paul Alexander. He got his start working with architecture firms and advertising agencies, he then signed up with a New York City artists rep which got him on the radar with publisher ACE Books around 1977. ACE along with a number of other publishers for various books and magazines kept him very busy over the next two decades. He is very well known for his mechanical style and Vincent Di Fate called him “one of the top “gadget” artists currently working in the American paperback market”.

I really love illustration on that Guardian cover. I’m not a huge fan of most 80s sci-fi book covers but this one was released so early on in the 80s that it still feels like it isn’t too far gone. If you dig into some of his later stuff you will see what I mean about the heavy 80s style, I am talking raised lettering book titles with full mirror gloss finish. His early work really does differ from his later work, not so much in actual subject matter or quality but the style change is really evident. It’s clear throughout all his work he was an absolute master at the technical and mechanical elements.

Patten + Small Black + Avery + D5

Patten is new to the Warp label, his LP is soon to be out. If you dig around on his insanely good website you’ll find free edits that he does, the best one in my opinion was this multi-fi edit of Burial.

I. am. thrilled. for. this. Small. Black. LP. Its like a slowed down Peter Gabriel instrumental!

Daniel Avery did up a perfect remix for Factory Floor, its something you’d hope someone would turn in for you, he leaves the original genre and gives you a beauty, DFA should be overwhelmingly happy.

I have been digging through almost every Delsin release this past week, just one by one and this was a stand out gem from D5, melting digital clouds.

Stream: Com Truise Wave 1

The new Com Truise EP “Wave 1” is out today, stream it above.

Wave 1 is the first new transmission the world has received from producer Seth Haley since his gloriously futuristic debut album Galactic Melt. That album cataloged the genesis and evolution of Haley’s alter ego Com Truise — the world’s first synthetic/robotic astronaut, as Haley described him — and this EP continues the character’s journey into the outer reaches of the musical multiverse. In the process, it also builds on Haley’s signature production style, one that’s rooted in classic sci-fi sounds and analogue textures but nevertheless manages to sound utterly contemporary.

Jaakko Eino Kalevi: Finland has their own Destroyer/John Maus hybrid and he’s amazing.


Lee Bannon: Ninja Tunes just keeps stacking up and reviving good drum n bass.


Indian Wells: Flying under the radar in the beat world clutter.


Disclosure: I wouldn’t usually post this video but the color treatment and the vintage knick knacks make it.
