audio chef – the nasha experience (FREE DOWNLOAD)

Delivered... sanjay kundalia | Scene | Mon 13 Sep 2010 9:16 pm

Last night The Nasha Experience organised an epic gig in aid of the Pakistan Flood victims (as previously blogged). The line up included Talvin Singh, State of Bengal, Osmani Soundz, Nerm & D-Code, Rita Morar and many more.

Today they are interviewed and featured in KMAG.CO.UK with a free download too!

Snippet of the interview:

The traditional view of Eastern music involves colourful clothing, intricate choreography and lavish production. However, one group of musical pioneers from East London are bringing the genre to a modern Western club scene.

Nasha Records
have been producing Eastern influenced dance music for almost 20 years, and in doing so have pioneered an original sound, palatable to both eastern and western tastes.

“The label set up in 2002 after we left Outcaste records,” explains founder Ges-e as we relax back at their studio after a gig at London’s East Village. “We wanted to continue what we had been doing, but with more of a dance edge.”

Novation Returns to Virtual Analog Hardware Legacy with $699 UltraNova

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Mon 13 Sep 2010 5:53 pm

UK-based Novation are known these days mainly for making MIDI controller keyboards for computers, but the company first made its name in synths. Novation’s virtual analog synths were beloved for their distinctive sound, accessibility – both in price and ease, and compact design. And some of that legacy, frankly, has been missing in recent years, even with the fun Xio keyboard.

UltraNova could be the hardware that brings back Novation’s soul. And the timing couldn’t be better, with a rekindled love for hardware synths even among dedicated computer users.

As the name implies, the UltraNova recalls Novation’s best-loved synths, the SuperNova and SuperNova II. Novation have brought back some of the spirit of the previous synths quite literally, with the design work of Nick Bookman (more on that soon). They’ve hit an absurd price point for what they’re promising, with a street anticipated around $699 here in the US. The UltraNova combines the kinds of tasty features people like – single part virtual analog synth with wavetables, effects, bus-powered USB and USB audio, software editor, and built-in arpeggiator and vocoder. But it also has a novel, touch-sensitive set of rotaries for editing.

And while there’s plenty of competition in the entry-level synth category, from boutique offerings from Dave Smith to big-name entries from Korg (MicroKORG II) and Roland (GAIA SH-01), I think the UltraNova’s feature set could make it a major competitive force.

Below, check out a high-resolution (1920px) gallery of the new instrument. Spec breakdown and promo video after the jump.

ultranova_wideangle ultranova_angle ultranova_back ultranova_closeup ultranova_top

The specs that look most compelling:

  • Good-quality keybed: The UltraNova uses a 37-key, Fatar-made keybed. I think Fatar makes some of the best beds out there. (I need to check with them on which variety this is, but I believe it’s one of the semi-weighted synth actions.) And it has channel aftertouch.
  • Wavetables plus subtractive synthesis: Virtual analog, as expected, but there’s a bonus – 36 wavetables, for additional sound design possibilities, which should appeal in particular to Novation’s dance music crowd. (18 voices / 14 filters / 5 effects slots.)
  • FX: distortion, chorus/phaser, delay, reverb, and gator plus compression and EQ.
  • USB, with bus power. Not only is there USB MIDI and two-in, four-out USB audio, but the entire keyboard runs (quite amazingly, I think) off bus power – no dongle needed. It’s also class-compliant, Linux users / people who hate drivers.
  • Sensible I/O: Balanced line-level and stereo S/PDIF outputs, plus MIDI In, Out and Thru ports. Look for that on similarly-priced synths — and good luck.
  • Vocoder and other goodies. Finally, someone other than KORG figures out you like gooseneck mics and vocoders. Other extras: an arpeggiator, three LFOs, six envelopes, a noise source, two ring modulators, three oscillators with density and detune controls…
  • Those touchable rotary controllers. Perhaps learning from the kinds of controls available on MIDI controllers, editing is available via eight, instant-access “touch and tweak” controls. In a unique move, these rubber encoders are also touch-sensitive, which effectively makes them buttons as well as encoders. There’s also a big knob for fine control of any parameter. It’s a clever arrangement, and I’m eager to try it.

UK: RRP £587.49. Estimated street price £499.99.
USA: SRP: $849.99. At dealers for $699.99.
DE: UPE €679.99. EST €599.99.

I must say, this is the most I’ve been excited by a Novation product in a long time. Stay tuned. The UltraNova ships in Q4.

Enigmatic producer Jacques Greene releases debut

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Mon 13 Sep 2010 3:05 pm

The mysterious very hyped house producer from Montreal, Canada, Jacques Greene will be issuing his first EP called The Look in November.

Coming from the LuckyMe family who has also put out Machinedrum, Hudson Mohawke and Rustie, not much is known about this 20 year old, except for the fact that he initially sent a demo to the LuckyMe label and the rest is history. The only interview floating around is this one with Dazed, accompanied by a mix he completed for them. We’re expecting big things from this kid, his solid house music bursting with dance floor bravado.

With a single on the way titled, ‘Baby (I Don’t Know What You Want)’, featured on Girl Unit’s podcast and playlisted by Mary Ann Hobbs, Greene has been labelled "a hot tip for future house sounds".
Jacques unapologetically describes his music as, "Analog synth washes and vocal chops that may be reminiscent of an emotional Will Smith summer block buster backed by shuffle-heavy drum machines blaring out of a bad PA system at six in the morning."

LuckyMe and Night Slugs will put out The Look on November 16th. Night Slugs will be putting out his debut single, ‘(Baby I Don’t know) What You Want’ shortly.

Focus on France: Martin Solveig

Delivered... Posted by Beatportal | Scene | Mon 13 Sep 2010 1:33 pm
With the conclusion of the U.S. Open upon us, it's the perfect time to turn our Focus on France lens upon Martin Solveig, as you'll understand once you watch the video above, starring Solveig and Bob Sinclar as amateur tennis aficionados, and featuring cameos from actual pros Gael Monfils and Novak Djokovic (who goes up against Rafael Nadal in tonight's final match, for anyone keeping score). When he's not practicing his forehand, of course, Solveig has been a linchpin of the French electronic scene since his work with the Africanism project in the late '90s. These days, Solveig runs the Mixture label, and his own productions blur the lines between house, electro, and pop music with ample charm. We spoke to Solveig about his roots in the French scene, the French Touch and La Yellow movements, and the spirited populism that he brings to his music today. Don’t forget to get our 'Focus On France' compilation featuring free downloads from Cassius, dOP, Dan Ghenacia, Solveig, and more.

Arthur Russell & Allen Ginsberg 10" unearthed

Delivered... electronic beats NEWS as RSS-Feed | Scene | Mon 13 Sep 2010 12:40 pm

We all love Arthur Russell, which is why we were super excited to hear that Japanese label Press Pop has unearthed a very rare 10" that Russell had done with legendary poet Allen Ginsberg.

It’s called ‘Ballad of Lights’ and it comes directly from the Russell archive, born out of collaboration in 1977, it was credited officially to Arthur Russell and The Flying Hearts featuring Allen Ginsberg.
The 10" also has a 1971 B-side called ‘Pacific High Studio Mantras’ also with Ginsberg, which is based on an old Tibetan mantra.

We had a feeling that Grizzly Bear’s, Chris Taylor would be behind this, after all Russell not only influenced Taylor’s music heavily, but he has already put out the 2008 Russell retrospective, Love Is Overtaking Me.

We’re also super excited to hear that Archer Prewitt from the magnificent Sea and Cake will be taking care of art duties. The 10" is numbered to 1000 and will retail at a reasonable 20 Euros.

One of the coolest videos we’ve seen in a while, here is a live TV collaboration between Arthur Russell and Allen Ginsberg teaching people how to meditate:

Audika and Press Pop will release the highly prized 10" Ballad of Lights on October 19th.
