Operating in a cloud of mystery, elusive producer Man Power first emerged last year with a string of untitled music videos, quality mixes, and impressive house releases for labels like Correspondant, Eskimo Recordings and Is It Balearic. Man Power has quickly captured the attention of listeners, while remaining resistant to revealing his true identity. We still don’t know all that much about him, apart from the fact that the enigmatic producer lives somewhere in Europe.

This week saw the release of Man Power’s new EP “Kiloton” on Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant label, a four-track offering with two fine remixes by Hardway Bros and Raudive, which is definitely worth checking out here. To mark the occasion, Man Power has offered up a free download of his great edit of the Cure’s “If Only Tonight We Could Sleep”, entitled “Velvet Arms”.

After grabbing the edit, keep an eye out for the producer’s upcoming debut release for John Talabot’s label, Hivern Discs. Below, you can also watch a video for his tune “Kiloton”. Feel the power!

Jackson And His Computerband: “Memory” Video

Parisian producer Jackson Fourgeaud, aka Jackson And His Computerband, has unveiled this great video for his latest single “Memory”, which was directed by So Me, the former art director of Ed Banger Records. “Something that struck me straight away, was that despite the modernity of Jackson’s music or his avant-garde skills, there was an intemporal quality to this tune. I remember thinking of the Beach Boys or other cult pop composers. That’s probably why I decided to set up this video in a place that’s timeless, New York City, and to not give visual clues of what year or period it is exactly set, hence why I shot with black and white 16mm film,” says So Me.

“Memory” appears on Jackson And His Computerband’s second album “Glow”, released last year via Warp Records.
