Avicii Releases a 3D Video for ‘You Be Love’ Featuring Billy Raffoul

23/12/2017
Post Image

He may have retired from touring or performing, but Avicii was everything but inactive this year.  A successful new EP, a documentary, and a video game were just some of the project he was involved in this year.

Swedish producer now released a new video, for a song “You Be Love,” taken off his comeback EP AVĪCI (01). The new, 3D video offers Avicii’s idea of creating an entirely new way of telling a love story, lead by surprise, technical innovation, creativity, and emotion.

The minimalistic video made completely in 3D with directors TNT offers a new dimension to the emotional track featuring low-timbered rock and roll vocalist Billy Raffoul. The tragic story, inspired by antique art forms, accompanies the song in the right way, once again exposing Avicii’s eye for details and exploring instincts.

AVĪCI (01) has already proved to be a huge success, while “You Be Love” generated over 19 million streams on Spotify alone.

Illenium Releases Breathtaking Piano Covers of Songs from Awake

23/12/2017
Post Image

Illenium is a Denver-based DJ and producer who thousands of listeners have fallen in love with.  Over the years, he has worked to perfect his entrancing, innovative sounds through producing various singles, EPs, albums, and live sets.  With only one show left of his nearly sold out North American tour for his Awake album, he has been busy beyond belief.  However, that didn’t stop him from seeking out some amazing pianists and surprising all of us Illenials with a new release on his label Seeking Blue / Kasaya.

This newest release from the Denver-based producer is a small compilation of various piano covers of hit songs from Awake titled.  Not your average remix EP, these 3 songs are transformed by extremely talented pianists into even more tear-jerking versions of the originals.

“Beautiful Creatures” is the first track, which is covered by Julien Marchal.  This is the softest interpretation of all of the tracks, but does an amazing job of capturing the feel and story of the original song.  “Fractures,” covered by Lorcan Rooney, is almost identical to the original as the piano follows the melody of Nevve’s vocals almost perfectly.  Finally, Lambert’s cover of “Crawl Outta Love” is included.  This cover is absolutely stunning and is sure to give you chills when you hear the delicate piano notes combined with the soft backing rhythms.

So far, this sneaky release is only available on Spotify.  However, we wouldn’t be surprised if it becomes available on iTunes and/or Soundcloud later on.  Each song is linked below so grab your tissues, put on your Illenium merch, and be prepared to be carried away into complete audio bliss.

Terre Thaemlitz to release new multimedia album, Deproduction

05/11/2017
Post Image

DJ Sprinkles remixes are also included on the package, which comes out in December.

Terre Thaemlitz is releasing a multimedia album called Deproduction.

Comprising audio, video and text on a SD card, the package interrogates the Western Humanist conception of family, its global pervasiveness and its influence on the agendas of LBGT groups. The release, which comes out in December on Thaemlitz’s Comatonse imprint, also features two remixes by her DJ Sprinkles alias. It’s her first major release as Thaemlitz since 2012’s Soulnessless.

Deproduction was made with support from art organisiations documenta 14 and Akademie der Künste der Welt. It premiered at documenta 14 in Athens on July 9th and has also appeared at London’s Cafe Oto and Sheffield’s No Bounds Festival (Joe Muggs described the work as “hardcore Japanese incest and gay porn put through a kaleidoscope and overlaid with incredibly dark textual meditations on childbirth, reproduction, family dynamics and global politics.”)

Read Comatonse’s statement accompanying the release.

“We live in an era in which dominant LGBT agendas are increasingly revolving around themes of family, matrimony, breeding and military service. The cultural terms for social analyses and organizing around such issues requires an aggressive capitulation to peculiarly Western Humanist notions of the nuclear family, as well as private and public space. As a result, Feminist and Queer critical rejections of family structures (nuclear and otherwise) are increasingly scarce. An ability to understand the abuses of family and domestic violence as symptoms of larger institutionalized dominations becomes virtually impossible.

In a stereotypically familiar and heteronormative manner, the anticipated promise behind today’s Queer families is nothing more than the egocentric notion that familial abuses will be resolved by this generation being better parents than the previous generation. What is forever absent are discussions of what it means to deliberately not be a parent, and to deliberately abandon family. They remain as taboo as the notion of celebrating the relief of an abortion.”

Tracklist
01. Names Have Been Changed (Sound/Reading For Incest Porn)
02. Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave) (Sound/Reading For Gay Porn)
03. Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave) (Piano Solo)
04. Names Have Been Changed (DJ Sprinkles’ Deeperama)
05. Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave) (DJ Sprinkles’ Deeperama)

Comatonse will release Deproduction in December, 2017

The first release, from the label boss, is due out later this month.

Milan techno producer Wrong Assessment is launching his own label called AWRY.

Wrong Assessment says AWRY will highlight his own music as well as that of artists who share his penchant for “deepness, hypnosis and minimalism.” A four-track EP from the label boss, simply titled AWRY001, is up first and expected by late October. Following that one will be a record from Midgar artist Ruhig, with a remix by Sublunar cofounder and Ilian Tape and Black Opal affiliate Sciahri—a release date for that one is still TBA. The label’s output will come on vinyl and digital formats.

AWRY is the next move for Wrong Asessment, an artist who in recent years has put out tracks on imprints including Mord, M_REC, Clergy and Parachute. He also used to collaborate with the late M_REC boss Max_M under the name Overall Severity.

Listen to samples of AWRY001.

Tracklist
A1 SNGRVS

AWRY will release AWRY001 in late October, 2017.

[a:rpia:r], the label run by Rhadoo, Raresh and Petre Inspirescu, will put out a record from Ricardo Villalobos in May.
