New York-via-Detroit producer and Ghostly International/Spectral Sound co-founder Matthew Dear starts off 2017 with the first DJ-Kicks mix of the year. The 25-track mix features Pearson Sound, Matrixxmann, ItaloJohnson and Simian Mobile Disco, as well as a handful of new tunes under his Audion alias. “A mix like this is always a good place to showcase my own productions, but I didn’t want to oversaturate it with my own stuff.”

The mix also includes a new original track from Matthew Dear himself in the form of “Wrong With Us”, a “reflection on the state of the world we live in today”, which was recorded with his friends Simian Mobile Disco. As he says: “‘Wrong With Us’ came about in a frenzied session with Simian Mobile Disco at their studio in the English countryside. We started with some modular synths and went from there adding vocals, drums and other odd ends. In the end, we finished four songs in four days, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results.”

Matthew Dear Dear’s DJ-Kicks mix arrives on January 27 via !K7. Pre-order it here.

Chicago’s Marea Stamper, aka The Black Madonna, has returned with her great new single “He Is The Voice I Hear”, a 10-minute disco ride that marks her first all new work since 2013’s “Lady Of Sorrows” EP. The track “He Is The Voice I Hear” is dedicated to the voices who inspired The Black Madonna to become who she is: Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Arthur Russell, Walter Gibbons, Loleatta Holloway. “I wanted to make a record that returned to the core values of dance music. In a lot of ways, I don’t think I’m doing something new with this record. I’m doing something old,” says Stamper. The track was made in collaboration with her studio partner Rupert Murray, and features an ensemble of live musicians including Davide Rossi and Christoforo LaBarbera on strings and keyboard.

The single “He Is The Voice I Hear” is out now digitally on her We Still Believe label.
