M83+C Beams+Matthewdavid+James Ferraro

Posted by Jakub

M83 drops the first single with an epic intro for his upcoming album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. I would have shared the cover art but its far from being anything ISO50. I find the single catchy especially with the sax solo, makes me feel like have the gained the skills to be able to leap from one skyscraper roof to another but I don’t recommend anyone doing that. Download the single here for free.

C-Beams comes to us from a small Hamburg label called Smallville, who in my mind are the front runners of keeping the early sounds of spaced out minimalist detroit techno alive and well.

Matthewdavid takes on an important role in the beat scene, tied in with labels like Brainfeeder, he becomes a key piece in keeping a mostly beat focused label very interesting by offering up hazy lo-fi sounds.

Alright let me explain, James Ferraro isn’t a normal sound for the ISO50 blog BUT holy shit! its like my VCR is broken, the sound damage is soo authentic its beautiful. The synth line is amazing and the sequence changes are perfected by completely just cutting tape and taping the next part together in the toughest way possible, amazed.

“I would have shared the cover art but its far from being anything ISO50.”


It’s still a pretty good cover, let’s not kid ourselves. Even if it’s not IS50.

And the song…. well, the song is stellar. Can’t wait for this DOUBLE album!

When do we get to hear the new Tycho single :-) ????

M83 song is great. Also excited about the album, and to see them for the first time in November. Somehow for a small venue they’re playing at here in Chicago (Lincoln Hall) it wasn’t sold out, so lucky me.

wow, surprised that I don’t love the M83 cover, especially after such an extremely good showing on Saturdays = Youth…

@MG33, thanks for the heads up about M83 in Chicago…

Owen, I hope you are right. Either way, even if it is the album art, the music is going to satisfy the shit out of me.

This pretty much says it all..

“Anyone who loved M83 before, they’ll love this album even more. People that hated me, they’re going to hate this, too.”

Love the cover art. You should have posted it. Was it not cool enough? I don’t understand.
