Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor returns with a new solo album, entitled “Beautiful Thing”, which follows last year’s “Listen With(out) Piano” reinterpretation album and 2016’s “Piano” LP. His fourth solo record represents the first time Alexis Taylor has made a solo album with a producer, that producer being Tim Goldsworthy, co-founder of Mo Wax and DFA Recordings and member of UNKLE.

In his own words: “I made this album with Tim Goldsworthy – my first time working on solo music with a producer. I am so happy with the results – it feels like quite a departure to me, and we really had some fun making it, with some new technology as well as instruments we created just for this record. Whilst primarily made on my own with Tim, other guest musicians include Neil Hagerty, Susumu Mukai, and Emma Smith, and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip produced one track too. I am very excited for everyone to get to hear the LP in April.”

Today, Alexis Taylor has share the video for the album’s title track and the track that kick-started the recording process with Goldsworthy. With “Beautiful Thing”, he combines experimental, clattering noises with crazed, disco lavishness and bug-eyed acid house momentum to create something giddy and glorious. The video, directed by Edwin Burdis, is a suitably compelling counterpart. Watch it above.

The album “Beautiful Thing” arrives on April 20th on Domino. Pre-order it here.

Chrome Sparks: “Still Think”

Brooklyn-based producer Jeremy Malvin, aka Chrome Sparks, makes a welcome return with his new single “Still Think”, taken from his forthcoming eponymous debut album. Set to drop on April 13th via Ninja Tune’s sub-label Counter Records, the 10-track record arrives after a series of much-tipped singles and EPs on Future Classic and boasts a sparkling sound: a euphony of hip-hop, house and bright-beaming synthwork. The album is the product of an obsessive approach to production as much it is about a restless hunt for new ideas over several years spent between Malvin’s Navy Yard, Brooklyn studio and a secluded cabin in upstate New York. The new single “Still Think” finds Chrome Sparks in fine form delivering a well-crafted tune with vocoder vocals, saccharine melodies, and lush textures. Blast it above.

Daniel Avery: “Slow Fade” Video

Following the announcement of his long-awaited second album “Song For Alpha”, London-based producer Daniel Avery has shared a glacial animated video for his track “Slow Fade”. The video was created by Flat-e, the London design studio that has previously helmed videos and live visuals for the likes of Jon Hopkins, Nathan Fake, Jamie Lidell and Clark.

Speaking about the video, Avery said “The thing I admire about Flat-e is that they recognise the beauty in mystery. They create worlds into which you can fall with your eyes closed”, while Flat-e had this to say: “To create the video for Slow Fade we used a combination of techniques. Our idea was to create something structural with no tangible sense of scale and then to degrade the footage throughout the video (a slow fade). We wanted to create something akin to watching chemical reactions or seeing the start of nuclear fusion in slow motion at macro level.”

The 14-track “Song For Alpha” LP will drop on April 6th via Phantasy. Pre-order it here.

After a long wait, Mt. Si, the LA-based collaborative project from Classixx’s Michael David, Kisses’ Jesse Kivel, and Superhumanoids singer Sarah Chernoff, are back with a superb new single called “911”.

The three members’ individual strengths shine brightly, but ultimately come together with a unique and unparalleled harmony.

After dropping the video for their comeback single “Juice” late last year, Montreal synth-funkers Chromeo have shared “Bedroom Calling”, featuring The-Dream, the second track from their forthcoming fifth album “Head Over Heels”. “We’ve been obsessed with The-Dream since ‘Fast Car’ from his first album. To us, he’s a modern day funk auteur, like Prince or El Debarge. This song pays homage to our favorite work of his”, says frontman Dave 1 of the new funky jam. Give it a spin above.

Chromeo’s new album “Head Over Heels”, which follows 2014’s LP “White Women” is out this spring via Big Beat/Atlantic.

George FitzGerald & Lil Silva: “Roll Back” Video

British producer George FitzGerald is back with his second album, entitled “All That Must Be”, which follows 2015’s debut LP “Fading Love”. The 10-track record has its psychological roots in two cities – Berlin and London. It documents a period of time when FitzGerald’s decade-long stint in the German capital came to an abrupt end, seeing him back in his hometown of London and becoming a father for the first time. It was against this backdrop that All That Must Be started to form and the result is a record that deals with the processes of upheaval, change, acceptance and renewal that affect us all.

The album includes last year’s single “Burns” and it features collaborators with Tracey Thorn, Bonobo, Lil Silva, and Hudson Scott. You can watch the video for the album’s new single “Roll Back”, a collaboration with Lil Silva, which was directed by Hugo Jenkins. The album “All That Must Be” will drop on March 9th on Double Six/Domino. Pre-order it here.

[Premiere] NTEIBINT: “I Do”

Over the past few years Greek producer and DJ NTEIBINT has become one of Eskimo Recording’s go-to artists producing the kind of emotional disco that is guaranteed to move body, heart and soul. Kicking off 2018 he’s again teamed up with his frequent song-writing partner, Greek indie/pop artist Σtella, for a superb new single called “A State Nearby”, which they describe as “a sci-fi disco ballad, full of heartbreaks and mellow synth lines. Between states, where we meet and where we part.”

To accompany “A State Nearby”, NTEIBINT has also produced the new track “I Do”, a club ready tune that’s perfect for your late-night rides. This one will get some serious rotations on our car stereo this winter. In his own words a “futuristic disco dub for dance-floors and heartaches” where intensely funky guitar riffs and a hypnotic synth arpeggio trade space with vocals snippets that echo off into the cosmos. Blast it above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

The “A State Nearby” EP drops on January 26th via Eskimo Recordings. Pre-order it here.
