Best New Music: Moiré No Gravity

Werkdiscs is always a win in my book. The Ninjatune imprint headed by avant-garde music gawd Actress, signs one new act a year at most, and then takes several more years to allow that artist to develop and showcase their craft. Their latest signee, Moiré is on the top of the creative-brilliance-in-the-making foodchain. His work is unconventional beauty at it’s finest. Don’t sleep.

Jim-E Stack Reassuring

Obsessed with the new Jim-E Stack track ‘Reassuring.’ His signature droopy synths are like deep jabs into whatever feelings you’re pretending you don’t have. You can’t help but feel something.

I asked him to play a party I threw last year when I first moved to New York. He said yes, and then cancelled the day of. Maybe he was busy working on this album. 

Tell Me I Belong is out on Innovative Leisure July 29th.

2. Run
3. Below
4. Reassuring
5. Everything to Say

Rook Milo Truancy Volume 96 Mix

I actually remember Ryan Hemsworth tweeting about Rook Milo a while back, but I never followed up. Good thing Truants did. Fans of Ryan, Suicideyear and their, what I like to call ‘trap lullabies’ (sidenote: this was before trap turned terrible and refers mostly to drum patterns and that distinct hi-hat samples), will rejoice in the Canadian producer’s dramatic take on this emerging trend.

Rook Milo’s dramatic ethos of stylistic slowed and throwed reworks amongst a scattering of unreleased gems (see: Ryan Hemsworth – Hurt Me (with Katie Gately) and Rook Milo – Sleepers) explored on this mix is well worth a listen from start to finish.

Luxsi Young Intro
Rook Milo – Truants Intro
Jeremih – Fuck U All The Time (Acapella)
Rook Milo – rejected beat for Tinashe Unreleased

Premiere: C L N K Zombie Mechanic

Everything about Silviu Badea aka C L N K screams cool. From the artwork to his track titles to the music itself, there’s no arguing, it just is. C L N K’s latest body of work, his forthcoming ANTI EP exudes dark through and through, whilst keeping listeners intrigued with an arsenal of sonic theatrics.

Lending to this techno take on a post-industrial sound, C L N K’s track, “Zombie Mechanic” is weighty and damaged, and yet possesses light at the end of the tunnel allure. Like dropping bits of mysterious liquid onto the icy floor of an igloo-turned warehouse rave, muted thumps and bumps in the night pair nicely with fluid synths and static flashes of light.

Then again, “Zombie Mechanic” might just be the theme song to a futuristic form of freeze-tag best played in outer space.

ANTI EP is released on 12 May via Error-Broadcast.

PREMIERE: PRISM HOUSE - LANDFALL EP

Pushing the boundaries of how we define electronic music, Brooklyn-based duo Prism House, unveil their latest creation today here on Mass Appeal.

Making sense of those wonderfully terrifying hollow gaps between sounds and noisy stabs of beats, on Landfall, Prism House creates their own type of semi-melodic techno wonderment.

Exploring unearthed territories with their limitless approach to sample based music, the production duo’s new body of work is a deep dive into the future. Layering shreds of semi-audible words with plenty of distorted reverberations, shrill wails and heavy building beats, the audio visual pair of Brian Wenner (music/live electronics) and Matt O’Hare (live visuals) seek to awaken the senses with more than just found sounds.

Landfall is out now via Ceremony Recordings.

Oceaán Need U

Love this video. Too kewt. I recently gave you five reasons to listen to Oceaán’s debut EP. After pressing play above, be sure to check them out here.

Oceaán’s s/t EP is out now via Chess Club Records.

BAE OF THE DAY: Will Ward Temperatures 

So today’s “Bae of the Day” is a dude. Get over it. Really looking forward to this forthcoming release from London techno inspired, deep house producer Will Ward. So much of the house and deep house being produced today is of the garden variety, so when an artist or release piques my interest, it’s always exciting (and refreshing).

"Temperatures"is the first single of Ward’s Chorus Memory EP and after listening it’s clear I’m a sucker for racing synths and meticulously sought after moods.

Of course everyone likes acts like Four Tet and Jamie xx, whom which Will Ward draws some parallels to. But if you’re looking for more reasons to listen, I would say even more so then the artists mentioned above, Ward’s sound is not so unlike Kompakt producer Dauwd, and even Bonobo. Really you can’t go wrong with Audio Doughnuts newest producer, as you’ll find Ward nestled somewhere in the middle of them all. 

Will Ward’s Chorus Memory EP is out on 12” vinyl and digitally on May 5th via Audio Doughnuts.

Blood Orange Uncle Ace (a/jus/ted Remix)

Dev Hayes aka Blood Orange, is the epitome of what you imagine the music scene in New York is like… (and actually is). I am shamelessly will forever be a huge fan. One of his sultry, guitar-laden creations off Cupid Deluxe, “Uncle Ace,” just exudes sexy, late night vibes.

The rework by Brooklyn production duo a/jus/ted (Eddie Mars and Justin Strauss) which dropped a few days ago, is a dark deep house flip— one that beckons to you, whispering, “Meet me on the dancefloor.” Keep this one on repeat to ensure to stay put under those glimmering lights all night long. So hawt. 

Dev wants you to know you can now buy the first official Blood Orange remixes featuring Kindness, A/JUST/TED & Robert Owens now on iTunes.
