First mix of the 2015 Kid Kameleon season is out. A deeper, more head-noddy affair than I was expecting to make, but it’s just how it came out. There’s something about the grinding, inexorable synths that has just been doing it for me ever since some of the classic Om Unit stuff of 2011 – this was finally a way to pull a lot of that stuff together. That’s the part that I’m calling #FutureWave. Then I’m trying to weave it into both the Com Truise sound and the digital cumbia I’m really in to a the moment. I think of it as the soundtrack to a psychedelic drive through the American Western Desert – I truly hope someone uses it for just that!
The one and only Julien Mier has put out my favorite release of the year so far. Mier’s stuff gets better with every passing month, and this is his best work yet (complete with amazing art reminiscent of Hayao Miyazaki). Full of heart and soul, passion and creativity. A butterfly crossed with a raven. Would expect nothing less from France’s Cascade Records.
My Finnish friends Recue and Jolea have self-released their EP We’re Not Like The Most. So happy to see it out. They’re even doing a vinyl for it!
Here’s a video from the releaser:
I was one of the first people to premier the original sketch of this track more than 3 years ago. It was in a set I did for Tom Ravenscroft on the BBC. There’s even a recording of that show here, so you can check out how it’s changed over time:
