Frikstailers – Bicho de Luz EP (ZZK)

Free Download – Frikstailers – ‘Dancehallete’

Frikstailers have been making noise across the Pan-Latin-Electro scene for a few years already, having done remixes for Major Lazer and putting out releases on several other notable labels. Last year the ZZK crew from Argentina picked them up and brought them on the labels tour across North America, where their outlandish performances and costumes increased their visibility literally and figuratively. Their brand new release, Bicho de Luz, featuring todays free download, ‘Dancehallete’ has the chance to put Frikstailers in another category far removed from being just another neon clad Cumbia outfit. There are certainly elements of Cumbia, Dancehall, and electro in their productions but this release is vast in scope and never feels gimmicky. Bicho de Luz is that rare electronic release that will resonate with you on the dancefloor, at your desk while at work, and on your headphones, it sounds like Four Tet stepped into a jungle cantina with a wicked percussionist and found a casio laced with peyote. I have a feeling Frikstailers will be around a lot longer than the current electro-Cumbia fad has come and gone, continuing to push their sound in a forward and fun trajectory.

Land Of Talk, Quarry Hymns

Future FILTER Magazine Culture Collide indie rockers Land Of Talk have unveiled their new video for "Quarry Hymns."

The clip features a very gracious dancer, dancing alone in a room while another woman watches. There are a few other elements in the video including a cup of tea, a key, and onlooker disappearing and reappearing.

I'm not 100% sure as to what the video means, but it couples with the music very well.

"Quarry Hymns" is from Land Of Talk's latest record, Cloak And Cipher, out now.

Catch Land Of Talk at the dates below including a set at FILTER Magazine's Culture Collide Festival!

Zola Jesus, Sea Talk

Los Angeles' Zola Jesus has released a new video for her track "Sea Talk."

The clip features the experimental singer/songwriter walking through a creepy house, appearing on a not-so perfectly working TV, and getting intimate with some electricity.

I doubt it was her goal, but all I think of when watching this clip, is the movie Poltergeist.

Check out the video below.

Slice of Swing-Hop from BBE

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Thu 2 Sep 2010 3:24 pm

BBE Records return with a really amazing slice of Swing-Hop, which is a combination of Hip Hop and retro swing – for those of you who hadn’t guessed… Not only are you about to be gifted with a preview of some extra special music, you are also witness to a new phrase being coined, right here, live. Swing Hop, you heard it here first.

Before this article really takes a turn for the worst, let us get back to the music. The new release comes from Chicago natives, Pugz Atomz’ new album The Decade and is the single ‘Now Baby’. The Decade is a compilation of both old and new tracks Pugz wrote between 2000-2010, self-explanatory really.

‘Now Baby’, the first single off the album, is a slice of Hip Hop that is all too rare these days. It is neither ghetto, nor is it bling. It sounds like Outkast circa Aquemini, Kanye circa College Dropout and Lil’ John circa ‘Mill-illi-illi-illi’, all mixed up into one caldron of swinging Hip Hop, ready for every dance floor.

It is simply what you want party Hip Hop to sound like.

‘Now Baby’ is released on 28th of September on BBE Records.

Introducing: Flux Pavillion

Delivered... Posted by beatportsean | Scene | Thu 2 Sep 2010 2:54 pm
In the narrow span of five years, dubstep has leapt from a sound that attracted a small circle of head-nodding audiophiles into anthems that command hands-in-the-air for a sea of club goers. One artist proving to be a leader in this metamorphosis is Josh Steele, who produces under the title Flux Pavillion, known for brutal, contorted basslines, and quickly becoming the go-to guy for remixes. Just as Flux Pavillion’s remix of the Freestylers' 'Cracks' was taking the number one position in dubstep downloads, Steele told us, "The brand 'electronic music' is so diverse, I think most modern music falls into that bracket. What I love is the ability to create massive energy with it and keep tweaking and refining tunes for months. Whereas with a band, there’s only so much you can really do… without resorting to using some electronics of course. For me dance music is fun and is better suited to a live environment, but with my tracks I like to put something in there that you can listen to at home as well. I think it’s really interesting how you can turn a dance track into something that actually has real emotion to it." I’m sure the fans would agree that each Flux production swirls with power and emotion. He’s found a way to tap into that element of music that is most visceral and uses it to harvest a reaction. Between his touring, producing, and his booked schedule, we pestered the Flux man just enough for him to take the time to answer our questions.

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Thu 2 Sep 2010 2:52 pm

The latest issue of Electronic Beats Magazine is on the way, and we have a sneak preview of what’s between the pages.

Accompanied by striking photos from a dilapidated Detroit, Broken Beauty provides some insight into our very contemporary fascination with the strange beauty of ruins.

Piano virtuoso Chilly Gonzales opens up about his insecurities in a revealing interview. In Canvassing New Truth five contemporary painters explain the attraction of their craft. These stories and many more come presented in a dark romantic aesthetic keeping with the issue’s theme and the onset of the leafy autumn.

Ostgut Ton turn Five with a very special release

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Thu 2 Sep 2010 12:09 pm

Ostgut Ton, the record label of Berlin’s techno Mecca Berghain / Panorama Bar, are releasing a very special record for their five year anniversary. The two disc compilation called Fünf is made up of tracks that take their DNA from field recordings made throughout the club when it was closed to the public.

German based producer Emika recorded everything from the fridges to the swings, to the sound of the strobes on the lighting rig to create a library of sounds from the the famous venue. These sounds – compromising over 4GB – were given to a selection of the clubs’ residents and affiliated producers who used the recordings as the basis for a new production.

Artists involved in the project include many familiar faces such as Boris, Steffi, Prosumer, and Cassy. Scuba also makes an appearance under his SCB moniker.

We wonder what sounds they got from the dark room….
