With a tentative release planned for early 2009, the album will see an all formats release, 3 x 12'' Vinyl / CD / mp3's.

In 'Homefree', Janne says this album has been a detailed culmination of dedication, determination and perseverance to the fullest,

"Making music's never been the easiest job for me, and I throw a lot of the songs I try to write into the bin, and I must say writing this album's been a pretty damn long road as well, but here it finally is.
I'm more proud of this album than any other Fanu music package ever released before."


and from following the early workings on part of this project, it's nice to see that after 2 years of tracking down Vector Burn the effort will finally be rewarded with this release.

Well done Fanu!

Solar Empire

With the over abundance of new music circulating my head these days, I almost forgot about the stellar release of Solar Empire's debut album, The Secrets Of Time.

The release of the ASC : Ezeekil collaborative effort has been a long time coming, originally signed 2 years ago to Thermal Recordings, the label encountered numerous distribution problems and ultimately went defunct, so the team at Covert Operations took formidable matters into their own hands and released the damn thing themselves!

This album is pure quality at it's finest. 12 stunning soundscapes drawing on multiple angles of dance floor damage to beard stroking reclinement. This album is an absolute must and available only from the Covert Operations Store.

The Future Is: Grimm

And now on to something that will become a regular monthly feature here at Sci & Pro (inspired by this thread and it's sinking demise), a head's up and profile on a new edge producer I feel is deserving of more notice and coverage. For the first installment, I'm staying local and shedding light on a Toronto MC turned budding producer, Grimm.

I was first introduced to Grimm back in December of 2007, when Make:Shift released his track 'Getting Deep' on their mpFREE compilation, 'Bassbored'. A tidy little mp3 indie album, looking to bring in some new artists and showcase some older friends of the label. Fast forward to May of 2008, he really caught my attention with his dark haunting number, 'Etched In Stone'. A gripping evil edged tune that makes your skin crawl. A real moody piece of music that makes you feel something when listening to it (to this day I can't understand why it hasn't been signed). From there we linked on AIM and he's been passing me tunes ever since, a fair amount too I should note. This guy does some serious work in the studio, crankin out solo works and collabs by the bunch (all quality!). In turn, label heads have started to recognize his talents and sign his tracks. Most recently Future Thinkin out of London UK, snatched him up for a release. And those notable collaborations I mentioned earlier, featuring the talents of Mutt, Nusense and Stanza, well it's almost certain that they'll find reputable homes in the coming weeks and secure a slot for release in 2009, no doubt. With a lot to look forward to and plenty to be patient for, this is merely the tip of the iceberg for the Grimmful One. Take note!

Buck 65 + Symphony Nova Scotia

"It was something that could only happen in Halifax" says Halifax Chronicle Herald critic Stephen Pedersen.

Back in April of this year, Canadian hip hop artist and poet extraordinaire Buck 65 did a special intimate concert engagement with the classical ensemble of Symphony Nova Scotia, at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax, Nova Scotia. What transpired over the next hour and a half was something so mind bending, so awe inspiring, a small concert in tiny Eastern Canada turned into a galactic 'experience' in the world of music. Here were two worlds on opposite ends of the spectrum, thrust together in a bizarre collision, producing a phenomenal soundclash for the ages.

The full concert is available for streaming ONLY on CBC Radio 2, but discussions are currently ongoing between Buck and CBC about acquiring the rights in hopes for a future digital release.

Check the set and stay tuned!

Rejoice!

LEGENDARY cutting edge drum and bass label No U-Turn Records has opened up a mp3 store via ithinkmusic.com.

I'm sure most of you know the history behind this label, owned and operated by techstep pioneer and living legend, Nico Sykes. No U-Turn is responsible for discovering and releasing some of the darkest, most experimental dnb producers of the early 90's, helping to shape the scene and push the limits on musical progression. Ed Rush, Trace, Ryme Tyme, Fierce, Future Forces Inc., Sinthetix, Break and Silent Witness all got their start here and grew in strength as artists from working together within this camp.

Many more titles to be added to the store in the future, including exclusive, previously unreleased tracks and alternative mixes of label classics, aswell as music from a variety of No U Turn affiliated projects (Saigon, Nu Back and Turn U On).

I know where I'll be spending my money in the very near future. ;)

c64 - Make:Shift Records Podcast

c64 is the man. srsly.

A long standing veteran and pioneer of Toronto's underground breakcore and drum and bass scenes, Chris Minifie is the definition of musicality, knowledge and respect (all rolled up into one). A dedicated DJ first, Chris has toured all over the world in support of his craft, showcasing his tastes and talents (and is taking bookings right now for an Oct/Nov trip to Europe). He also pilots two labels. His breakcore, experimental imprint Dross:tik Records and his dnb imprint, Make:Shift Records, which factors in a few local yocal heads aswell. Solid. If you needed more proof for your pudding, the man also runs a well respected promotional company under the name of Splinter Productions, which I'm sure all Toronto friends are aware of.

Make:Shift has gained a rep over time as "the little indie label that can (AND WILL!)", releasing music in all forms of media, including two luscious slabs of vinyl, two stellar CD albums (V.A. - On The Lam [CDx2] and Polska - Skeptic; I strongly recommend you pick these up so place your ORDER HERE) and one compilation album of budding producers (and a few old geezers) in digital download format. (get your MPFREE .zip file HERE!)

So without further adieu, here's the mix and what you clicked for, and as c64 said, it's runnin with "A little new, a little old and everything in between. Enjoy."

The Bug - Skeng - Video



Official video for The Bug & Killa P (featuring Flowdan) - Skeng

"From The Bug's eye view of London Zoo, one rooftop with no concept one flashlight and three early morning hours becomes a hyper-real and very chilling story of the tools of survival in the London jungle below, as told by the lone and stoned mouths of Flowdan and Killa P. Shot by Anne-Marie Bergeron (Urler.tv), this video is seen best from the bed in your hearse, with a shot in your face like dart in a board" (source)

Burn After Reading



I want to take more stabs at movies here on Sci & Pro, as I am a film nut, and I'm gonna start in this direction with the next film by the Coen Brothers, Burn After Reading. I've always been a big fan of their work and ever since last years No Country For Old Men, anything they now touch is a guaranteed WIN imo. The assembled cast is pretty stacked too with heavyweights like Malkovich, Pitt and Clooney, aswell as female Oscar winners, McDormand and Swinton. Burn After Reading hits theatres September 12th aannnnnnd I'll be catching it that weekend.

Chook & Phace - FF014

Finished the press write last night for ZeroOneFour on Full Force, featuring Chook and Phace. Brother Radic threw it up on a couple of forums, so it goes live here too! Have a looksee..

Full Force Recordings is proud to present a collaboration of collosal proportions featuring the mighty talents of label boss Chook and the German space punks, Phace. High quality production and phenomenal audio engineering has quickly become the standard at FF and 014 follows suit in the form of two extra large cyber funk rollers. In the grand scheme of things, this release puts a final stamp and seal of approval on an epic year at Full Force Recordings.

Frozen
A chilling introduction gives way to dreamy sedative state where slippery funk grooves trip back and forth coating airwaves with thick honey-like sweetness (makes you crave delicious!). Senses shiver feverishly in a hypnotic gaze and bones bounce like bowling balls on trampolines as this track flexes hard and rolls deep into the midnight light.

Sculptured
Forward into the ominous setting, tension fills the air as the script unfolds. True to form, Chook and Phace combine some of their darkest funk breaks with their signature style of space age progression, adding key sci-fi stabs, haunting atmospherics and a rugged bassline one has come to expect from these masters of nueropunk.



Dig it? Audio can be heard on Chookspace or FFspace links above.
Promos hit stores in October, with mp3 release to follow one month later.

Covert Operations News

Lotsa good news out of the Cov Ops camp early this week.

Firstly, and most noteworthy, Volume 4 from the now infamous Sci-Files series is out. This edition see's the production machine known as ASC carve your cranium a little deeper with 2 chilling tracks served cold on a block of ice. Check First Snow, paying homage to the film, The Fountain, and Holosphere, an impressive track "detailed and raw with lush minimal atmospheres punctuating throughout". This release is available now exclusively from the Covert Store and everywhere else late August / early September.

Next, the Global Connections series see's the release of Volume 5. Artists on this installment include, Method One, P.B.K., Intersidreal and rising artist Lm 1, plus a load of others. Quality and recommended.

And finally, for the vinyl lovers, COV028 Polar - Sudden Depth b/w Method One - Swing Shift. That's right, Mr. K makes his triumphant return to drum and bass this year with a forthcoming album on Warm Communications and this release on Cov Ops. Buy on sight!

Aesthetics

An exciting new prospect out of the Shadow Law stables is a new label dedicated to rising talents from across the globe. Aesthetics has been set up to break in new names that the common public might not yet be aware of, but will get to know FedEx fast!

Originally, this project was created in early 2007. 001 (Catacomb - Out Alive b/w Dose - Anoxia) was signed early last year, and then put on the back burner. Being as busy as the 'man in demand' is, Mayhem's ongoing workload restricted him from giving it the proper attention a "quality control" + "talent breaking" label deserves. Now with things in a more calm and collected state (and his debut album almost complete!) the time has come to open the flood gates and rinse out the beats.

With 3 official releases already concrete, Aesthetics look to break new boundaries with likes of Equivalent, Engage, Kodin and Scud, aswell as respective new school heads, Catacomb, Dose, Corrupt Souls and Cern making their mark.

AES001 is on test press right now and Mayhem has said things will now move at a speedy pace, so expect to see a consistent flow for the rest of the year. (and if not, send kick-in-the-ass emails to mayhem @ shadowlawrecordings . com HAH!)

Bro Safari

Check this out.

Knick of Evol Intent and Ludachrist fame, has a new outlet for glitch tricked dubstep/downtempo'd beats. Under his new guise of Bro Safari, he's graciously offered up 3 unsigned gems for free! (mirror by Mr. Frodo)

As you can see from the thread, the feedback has been pretty positive, and although he said he lost his motivation while writing, I'm betting this won't be the last we hear from his latest moniker.

Catacomb - The Zodiac (Misanthrop Remix)

By the beard of Zeus! Misanthrop has done it again on the remix tip.

The original has long been one of my favorites from the Catacomb catalogue, and in my eyes, was the first big tune where they really came into their own and identified 'their' sound. A large serving of filth ridden, gutter crawling, rugged chugging minimalistic future funk. (and that's how we like it!)

So if you've copped the two (1 and 2) Bulletproof sets I've recently posted, you would've recognized this track. (trust me) Obscenely powerful and aggressive, it grabs you by the scruff of your neck and throws you into a violent pit of rage and hostility where your sanity is put to the ultimate test.

Step into the mind of a killer.

New TVOTR Album

(I don;t know why I lack on posts, it just happens that way...)

Last week, Pitchfork Media had the first details on TV On The Radio's upcoming album, Dear Science,. It got me rather excited, as 'Return To Cookie Mountain' was quite possibly my favorite album from 2006. Then today, I catch this stellar review over at Rolling Stone, and I'm doing fucking headspins on my desk!!1

So they touring in September, but no stop in Toronto. Do us a favour? Check their show and tell me how it was. Cheers.

Album is out Sept. 23rd, GIT IT!

Amon Tobin Dot Com

There are run-of-the-mill artist websites where nothing ever changes and flash looks disguise lack of content. That’s around 90% of them accounted for. Then there are those few where you get stuff you’re not getting anywhere else.

Once a month for the next six months, Amon Tobin will be releasing one exclusive track (not previously released on any album) made available for sale directly through his web site. But not only is there exclusive material, there’s the chance to generate your own exclusive material. Site users are being invited to submit videos for these songs for compilation on an eventual DVD release.

Tobin’s web site already features a community element. The Fans’ Videos section of the site provides a platform for people to submit their own films for his tracks. Tobin’s music is known for being cinematic and providing a perfect accompaniment to moving pictures (as evidenced in his score of films such as 'Taxidermia' and games such as 'Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory'). You only have to look at the list of his scored and licensed works (also on the site, in the Media section) to see that. Amon Tobin has decided to embrace this marriage of music and image and see what results are forthcoming.

Don’t get us wrong, though – Tobin’s site has enough bells and whistles to keep any midget-attention span satisfied. Check out the game that’s prominently featured - through a 360 degree search and a series of clicks, you can unlock the creatures that live within the site to witness a unique demonstration of 3D animation in synch with Amon’s scores. Set up the right speakers and note that the whole experience is in surround sound.

In addition to the exclusive tracks in the coming months, Tobin will be offering a digital release of his soundtrack to 'Taxidermia', live mixes, ringtones and ringbacks, as well as new designs for t-shirts, hats, posters, desktops, CDs and vinyl. You can stay posted by grabbing the Amon Tobin Gydget.

So stop reading, log on, enjoy.

Kid Koala's Montreal



XLR8R.TV on Revision 3 catches up with turntablist legend, Kid Koala, for a personalized tour of his hometown Montreal, Quebec.



Man, I love that city. Seeing the sites in the vid, even for only a brief period of time, reminds me I have to make that trek up the 401 for another weekend of culture and debauchery sooner than later!

R.I.P. Jonny Cern

Sad news today out of New Zealand, Jonny Beck from the high praised production duo Cern, has passed away.


2008 was a real breakout year for Cern after a number of prized tracks released on various Triple Vision in-house labels. Their latest on Syndrome Audio ('Voodooguru' b/w 'Tense Passed') was exceptional, drawing stunning comparrison to the early work of Ed Rush & Optical on Virus.

This is a great loss for dnb and humanity itself. He will be sorely missed.

The Bug Hits North America

Great news out of the Ninja Tune camp, The Bug is set to embark on a mini tour of North America this month in support of his forthcoming album, 'London Zoo' (out now!).

Thankfully, the Toronto collective, The Curb Crawlers, has graciously stepped up and secured a date with the man, July 24th at The Drake Hotel. And riding shotgun this stretch, Warrior Queen! (should be HYPE!)

Portishead Interview With Last.FM



Last.FM just upped a tidy little interview with the men behind the music of the dynamic Portishead. In the video, Geoff and Adrian talk about their early experiences and influences in "music", those which have helped shape and mold the Portishead legend into what it is today.

(Love this type of interview, very personal and full of insight.)

NME Mag reports today that the band expects to record their fourth album later this year.

ASC Announces New Album

Big news today on a new album project by the Covert boss, ASC. Forthcoming this September (yes that soon!) on Horizons Music out of the UK, a 6 track triple vinyl + 10 track CD release of the yet to be named drum and bass LP.

Originally signed as a 12'' single (Lightyears b/w Logical Regression) things have rapidly transformed into a full out artist album. Six of the ten tracks are already complete and posted on the myspace as previews. Check 'em out!

This will be the second album of 2008 for James, with the breathtaking ambient techno soundscapes of 'The Aeon Expanse' already released in March under the Mindspan moniker. (I highly recommend picking this up!)

Nothing but sheer brilliance defining cutting edge.

Amon Tobin - Taxidermia Digital EP



In 2006, Amon Tobin wrote the original score to the Hungarian film, Taxidermia. Now I've never seen the film, but judging from the trailer above, it's something of the dark, obscene, bizarre nature that one might expect from a movie with such a title. One might also say, it's the perfect canvas for a composer of such stature to explore freely and turn out something equally engaging as the film itself. Right?!!

Here's the press write for the EP:

"The score takes an old school approach to music for cinema with recurring themes set in various contexts guided by the narrative. A musical depiction of some truly bizarre imagery, this EP includes previously unreleased full length versions of music from the film alongside short pieces made for specific scenes. As a bonus we included the epic 'Here Comes The Moon Man' heard here in it's original context. The music for 'Taxidermia' was written during the making of 'Foley Room' and shares elements from the albums lovingly crafted source material."

YES!
The EP is available NOW and ONLY from the Amon Tobin Online Store.


Also, some sample clips from the movie featuring Amon's score. (shouts to Sadr!)

Mayhem Forthcoming Debut LP

Atlanta's first son, Mayhem, recently spilled the beans on his forthcoming debut album, Into Oblivion.

Due out in September of this year on SLR, the release will be available in all formats (3 x 12'' vinyl, CD and mp3) and features solo works as well as some promising collabs with long time friends, Phace and Psidream, separately. There is also a Noisia remix included, so keep an eye on their Remix Page for a possible preview.

I'm expecting big things from this project, and you should too! Anthony has been long overdue for a release of this nature and we all know the amount of attention albums receive. So prepare yourself for nothing but the best in forward thinking, funk fuzed, southern fried drum and bass!

Full Force 013

Next up on Full Force Recordings:

Misha - Bugs 2 Sequel
Bursting onto the scene like an unsuspecting SWAT raid, Misha unleashes a fury of vigor and havoc in his destructive debut, 'Bugs 2 Sequel'. The Stateside Maryland native caused quite a stir online last year, when the early stages of the 'Bug' morphosis were first exposed. Forum heads were calling for it's immediate release and the word was now out on this new aged mad scientist. The final to his epic experiment has spawned a creation of dark defiant vibes, full of rugged, chugging bassline-midline combos and tense skin crawling synths. This is the kind of debut knockout that leaves a bold impression in your memory and a permanent indent on your skull!

Nphonix - Ephyra [Dose Remix]
New Zealand has quickly become dnb's 'next' breeding pool, spawning some of the most technical and forward thinking producers in the game today. Christchurch native, Dose, steps in on the remix tip to take the 'Ephyra' vessel on a deeper journey into another celestial dimension. Adding key atmospheric elements, running drum lines and a larger, warmer bassline, the tune has undoubtedly received a significant upgrade from the Nphonix original to become an instant floor friendly, funk heavy beat!

Full Force, into the future of drum and bass.

words by me ;)

Axiom presents: Audio Fiction

About a month ago, Axiom hit me up to discuss a new label he was about to start. We chatted a bit more and he mentioned he was interested in getting me to do some words for it (label bio, press sheets and future promo texts) and I willingly agreed.

So I then see in a promo thread by his booking agency, This Way Up, that it was announced. So I figured I'd post about it here, now. :)



Axiom presents: Audio Fiction

Audio Fiction is a brand new drum and bass imprint oot of Berne, Switzerland, owned and operated by breakout producer, Axiom. Its main focus is to release a signature selection of aggressive, hard edged neurofunk and tech step beats. It is under the strict guidance and respectable eye of Axiom that this label will flourish with a wealth of quality releases, starting from 001 and into the future. Distribution handled by Triple Vision NL and S. T. Holdings UK.

Chris.su - Double Axle ~ AUDIO
Chris.su is known for his originality and extreme high quality when it comes to production. The Hungarian native is seen as a seminal leader in forward thinking and future origin beats, showing his ideas stretch far and beyond the normal grasps of the mind. His latest production, 'Double Axle', is an extra large offering of power, aggressiveness and hostility. Hard, chugging beats combined with an intimidating dialogue lead to an intrusive affair between producer and listener, with the former coming oot alive after the vicious battle.


Jade & Matt-U - Dread Moon ~ AUDIO
Sticking with the Hungarian theme, two of the countries highly coveted producers team up to deliver an infectious and raucous arrangement of beats and basslines in the haunting case of 'Dread Moon'. Led with likes of a psycho echo synth, some monster filth ridden mid lines, a nasty funk swing and an evil creeping bassline, the dancefloor is no place for weak souls as the moon is in full flight on this twisted night.

Luke also has a new mix out that i suggest everyone download if you don't have already!

Full Force 011

My press write for Full Force 011 is up at S.T. Holdings, and will of course be included with all promo plates once released in March. Have a look. :)

Chook - Trainpsot [Misanthrop Remix] German powerhouse, Misanthrop, steps up for his first contribution to the Full Force stable with a masterful remix of Chook's sinister roller, 'Trainspot'. Flexing his signature style of high voltage funk and chest rupturing bass, Misanthrop adds another layer to the legend in this "can't miss, must have" remix classic. Once again, Full Force proves to be one of the most respected outlets in the game for pure quality in future funk beats.

Chook - Sound Of Time Hazy eyes awake to a dark, mysterious setting. Suspense lingers as the introduction begins. The invasion of static mutates the airwaves, opposing a major threat to recovery. Sharp, skin cutting percussion sets the senses on high alert, preparing the body for the breaks. Thick, grungy midlines shiver feverishly in cold textures, while an edgy rolling bassline coats the walls of the sound chamber. The white noise regains control of the vessel, paralyzing all running systems and thus forbidding any chance of outside contact. The signal is set, the fate is sealed. The rugged, minimal funk pollutes another mind and executes it's venomous destiny.

Digs?

Big up Radic, Chook and Misanthrop!

I Met The Walrus


I have this real keen interest to see this movie short, I Met The Walrus, directed by Josh Raskin from Toronto.

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview. This was in the midst of Lennon's "bed-in" phase, during which John and Yoko were staying in hotel beds in an effort to promote peace. 38 years later, Jerry has produced a film about it. Using the original interview recording as the soundtrack, director Josh Raskin has woven a visual narrative which tenderly romances Lennon’s every word in a cascading flood of multipronged animation. Raskin marries traditional pen sketches by James Braithwaite with digital illustration by Alex Kurina, resulting in a spell-binding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit, and timeless message.

Sounds good right?! Well, there's a bit of buzz about it as it's in the running for an Oscar this year in the 'Best Animated Short Film' category. Watch for it to win on Sunday and tune in to Bravo after the Oscars to see it for yourself!
