Riders, it’s premiere time! Straight from Vilnius, Lithuania, here comes a new independent record label from Liudas Lazauska, aka Roe Deers, and Titas Motuzas, called “Good Skills”. The two friends and great musicians launch their new record label and, at the same time, they establish their fresh moniker BDHBTS by presenting the label’s first release, which includes two originals cuts and eight great remixes created by dear friends from all over the world. Our beloved Curses is one of them, doing once more what he does best; creating exciting music that emerges out of the disco darkness soundscapes.

Today, we’re psyched to premiere Curses’ remix for track “Bad Habits”. The New Yorker/Berlin based artist offers with his remix just the right amount of dirty, delivering a fantastic, gloomy 8-minute ride fueled by a blend of eerie sounds and absolutely amazing bass guitar cuts. Massively bass driven “Luca” darkness. Blast the track above!

BDHBTS’ EP drops on November 29th via Good Skills.

Michael David: “Rain II”

Over the last decade and a half, Michael David, popularly known for his work as one half of LA duo Classixx, has made many kinds of records, but always with other people. In 2015, he made something of his own for the first time ― a bleak, post-apocalyptic single released under the name Studio Paradiso. Now, Michael David steps out on his own with his first first solo release, entitled “There In Spirit / Rain II”, on Cascine.

Recorded late at night on a Tascam multitrack tape recorder, the record finds Michael David bending and melding organic instrumentation into something layered and uncanny: guitars chop and glimmer, beats cascade and push forward, but always with a sense of gentle resignation. This is the sound of a mind searching through time, exhuming memories and emotions ― good and bad ―to try and know, recapture, reclaim, and most importantly, feel. Our first taste comes in the form of “Rain II”, a finely-crafted tune. Give it a spin above, and drive slow.

The “There In Spirit / Rain II” 12” drops on November 22. Pre-order it here.

Sam Shepherd, aka Floating Points, has shared a video for his track “Anasickmodular” that gives a brief glimpse into the visual world created by Hamill Industries. The clip was filmed during rehearsals at Sala Hiroshima, Barcelona, last September. The track “Anasickmodular” is lifted from Floating Points’ second album “Crush”, his first album in four years, following his excellent 2015 debut LP “Elaenia”.

“This music video dives us into behind the scenes of the making of Floating Points’ live show, showing the machinery involved in creating the audio-reactive visuals. These are created using audio signals from a Buchla system into a modified Vectrex screen, a game console from the 80s.”

Directed and produced by Hamill Industries.

The album “Crush” is out now via Ninja Tune. Buy it here.

Classixx: “Love Me No More”

Los Angeles duo Classixx, composed of Tyler Blake & Michael David, make a triumphant return with their infectious new single “Love Me No More”. The energizing house vibe heard in “Love Me No More” is a tribute to the tradition of French Touch and a dedication to the legendary producer Philippe Zdar (Cassius), who was a hero to Classixx.

In their own words: “Love Me No More” is our tribute to the tradition of French Touch and the dance music producers who shaped us as young musicians. Philippe Zdar’s (Cassius) work was a guiding force for the track, he was a hero of ours. We played around with the form a bit – the bass part is a full live pass and so is most of the synth work. We’ve been sneaking the song into our DJ sets lately and it’s been a lot of fun to see the response.

The single “Love Me No More” is out now on Innovative Leisure. Buy it here.

He’s much more than a terrific producer. He creates art full of miscellaneous emotions and his genuine music either speaks straight to your soul or takes you right to the dancefloor; or both. You all know him because he is one of the most acclaimed and versatile artist on the international music scene, and he’s one of our favourites. Dear riders, it’s Kasper Bjørke.

After a three year absence, the prolific Danish producer returns to hfn music with a majestic new double EP, entitled “Nothing Gold Can Stay”, returning to his signature leftfield danceable beats. The double EP explores both the analogue and organic side of his production work on Side-A, while Side-B reflects on sounds that he would play today, in one of his nightclub DJ sets.

Today, we’re so delighted to premiere A-Side’s second track “Seabird”, a fantastic cover version of Alessi Brothers’ 1975 classic “Seabird”. It’s a track that came about through Kasper’s friendship and musical synergy with DJ and vinyl digger Christian d’Or, who is lead crooning while Toby Ernest delivers his signature falsetto. You can sense the track’s fresh feeling, while at the same time it truly respects the delivery and the mood of the original song’s core. Kasper’s magical sound skills capture you from the very first seconds and the melody offers you a dreamy ride to the sky. The vocals are simply magnetic. “Listen lonely seabird, you’ve been away from land too long… Seabird, seabird, fly home”. Blast the track above and enjoy this heartfelt ride.

Kasper Bjørke’s double EP “Nothing Gold Can Stay” drops on 22nd November via hfn music. Pre-order it here.
Part 1 EP, which includes “Seabird”, will drop sooner, and more specifically tomorrow! Get it!
