Wild Culture /// New EP

Austrian remix wizards Wild Culture have just dropped new tracks on their Soundcloud. 'The TIDE/ With You' is a double helping of dancey, infectious House-ness. I'm loving 'The Tide,' it rolls smoothly with a deep, thick bass line and its funky flares give the track a slick groove.

Syro gets Grammy nomination



Aphex Twin grabbed our attention when he flew a blimp over London to promote his new album 'Syro.' Now it seems he might grab a Grammy too!

Aphex Twin is one of many electronic artists who have been shortlisted for the new, 'Best Dance Album' category for the 57th Grammy awards next year. It seems that the awards ceremony is trying to redeem itself for its previous clumsy attempts at recognising the dance music scene, they caused embarrassment last time when they tried to "Tribute" EDM.


The new category highlights the successes of artists like Little Dragon, Aphex Twin, Disclosure and ZHU. The ceremony will kick of Feb 8th 2015!

Nuage /// Prints Of You

Nuage makes a triumphant return to Translation Recordings with another serving of smooth, sublime beats! His last outing, "So Long," forged a different path for Nuage (who had previously focused on DnB) and his latest offering, "Prints Of You," seems to go deeper down this path. Fans of old need not worry though, there's a beautiful DnB collaboration with Gerwin titled "Lifestyle" that harks back to his Fokuz days.

Panasonic announce revival of Technics brand

Panasonic’s much-loved Technics brand is being given a dust-off and reintroduced into the wild. The company revealed a new range of audio equipment under the brand name, including speaker systems, amplifiers, controllers…even a CD player. A glaring omission from the line-up, however, were turntables.

For audio-fanboys and girls hoping for a new series of SL-1200s (I’m including myself in this one), this is pretty gutting. Technics SL-1200s and 1210s are the industry standard decks which you will see in most commercial music venues, and are used and loved by established artists, bedroom DJs and audiophiles alike. Panasonic discontinued them in 2010 and since then second-hand decks have been much in demand, with prices for a single turntable peaking at more than £500.

Panasonic haven’t commented on the decision not to include turntables in the new range of Technics products. Hopefully, the company are just trying to generate suspense and whip up some hype before announcing a new series of 1200s in the near future. With the turntables’ die-hard fan base, respected reputation and fashionable brand name, it seems like a business no-brainer. Fingers crossed the boys in Japan are thinking the same thing.

SOPHIE


SOPHIE is not what you expect a DJ to be at all!  Despite the female name, SOPHIE is actually a male DJ with a different theme to DJing.  He mix and blends deep bass with high pitched keys and fills it with an abundance of unusual sound effects to give you several playful disco tracks, rather than your typical club smashers.  Not designed for the club SOPHIE’s track ‘Bipp’ is almost like a child singing over a video game themed orchestral instrumental.  Whereas track entitled ‘Elle’ is undisputably full of a keyboard of sound effects.  If club bangers is what you’re looking for then stay away from any club that SOPHIE is DJing at!  But if a good beat boxing backing track is your thing then tune into the likes of ‘Bipp’ and ‘Elle’ now!
