Burial – Rival Dealer [HDB080]

As soon as Burial released his latest EP, Rival Dealer, the internet lit on fire with anticipation. Burial is definitely not short on hype. If people aren’t talking about how impressive his music is, they’re half-jokingly trying to convince others that Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) is the man behind Burial’s music and anonymity. On Rival...

JUST ANNOUNCED! TONIGHT Jan 03 — Egyptrixx (DJ Set/Night Slugs) w/ Judge Wise, Evan Michael

    Egyptrixx is celestial club music; jeep music for a Saturn desert. There is an exhilarating right-but-wrong tension in all the tracks – a shifting balance between melodic and dissonant, rapturous and antisocial. His releases challenge the status quo and impress with a unique style informed by elements of techno, house, heavy metal, pop...

Trial + Error #2

Trial + Error #2

#2 I think out of some unconscious resistance to the relentless cheer of our current holiday season, I’ve lately gravitated towards books, movies, and music that are in some way full of dread or melancholy. Maybe it’s because last year around this time we were all enduring (somewhat feverishly I might add) the inexorable approach...

Laurel Halo – Chance Of Rain [HDB CD021]

I’ve been all about DJ Rashad‘s latest string of releases on Hyperdub, and its easy to look at Hyperdub’s year in 2013 based on what Rashad’s doing, but here is a completely different release out of the Hyperdub camp. Laurel Halo’s first major release was a large collaboration with James Ferraro and Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix...
