Altair Noveau - Space Fortress

Altair Noveau - Space Fortress

$4.99

Altair Nouveau consists of Brandon Mitchell, a young producer from the West Coast currently residing in San Francisco. Altair Nouveau's music, though designed with the dance floor in mind, evokes a uniquely personal element. It is the combination of these two features that gives Altair Nouveau its indistinguishable, larger-than-life, spaced-out future disco sound sure to cause a dance floor frenzy.  

Raised in the sprawling city of San Jose, California, to musical parents, Mitchell grew up with the encouragement of his father, an electronic music teacher at the local community college. He began to educate himself by collecting albums from the likes of Giorgio Moroder, Vangelis, Ennio Morricone, and John Carpenter. This gave way to newer acts such as In Flagranti, Prins Thomas, Lindstrom, and several DFA artists.   

The title track of his debut 12-inch, "Space Fortress," charges out of the gate on the back of a throbbing bass line with synthesizers blazing. Quickly building, it flies high then lands in a valley of rhythmic pulses before entering the whirlwind again and ascending back into the heavens.   

"Showdown" is exactly that, with its slow, dramatic electronic transcendence and lush, minimal vocal harmonies. The swirling jazz funk of "Sorcerer," full of bright and shimmering synthesizer melodies, conjures up a siren-like magic that expands beyond the far reaches of space.

Black Van - Yearning

BLACK VAN brings together the talents and vision of two well-known electronic producers: KRIS MENACE and KOWESIX, one half of the “all-night-dance-party” DJ duo MOONBOOTICA. Yearning” takes from both old and new, combining classic, straightforward electronics in a fresh, new composition. It’s all shimmering keys, four-on-the-floor beats and steady bass; the song only stops to take its breath for a few seconds.

Canyons - Fire Eyes

$4.99

Drawing influences from the far corners of planet Earth and beyond, Australia's Canyons strikes a balance between psych and acid house, pop and disco, fiction and fact. Leo Holiday and Ryan Sea-mist have been producing their distinctly boundary-less modern cacophony for a couple of years now, attracting interest from fans of eclectic, irreverent dance music everywhere. The duo has remixed tracks for Empire of the Sun and Ladyhawke, and also runs the Hole in the Sky label. Fire Eyes is Canyons' first release for DFA Records and follows recent compilation appearances on Modular, Lo Recordings, and Cosmo Vitelli's I'm a Cliche, among others. Their debut album is in the making and will be out on Modular in late '09 / early '10. With the odd remix in the pipelines, Canyons are also piecing together a full live band to take their musical healing on the road and to the people. 

 

"Leo Holiday and Ryan Sea-mist are the dynamos behind Australia's Canyons, offering tantalizing disco-meets-acid-house treats with a touch of pop for easy dancing pleasure...." --Urb Magazine  

 

"... deep, grinding house that sounds like [Canyons] has been listening to Art Ensemble of Chicago and/or Popo." --The Fader

Capracare - King of the Witches
Capracare - King of the Witches

Capracare - King of the Witches

$5.99

The man behind the name Capracara is Englishman Jonathan Burnip, who has released 2 acid drenched singles on UK label Soul Jazz and remixed for the likes of Matt Edward’s Rekids label and Kill The DJ. He also remixes as one half of Tiger Timing and has contributed to the esoteric disco label History Clock. His latest project is 'Churchill's Leopards' with Joel Martin of Quiet Village.

'King of the Witches' takes its cues from the psychotronic, primitive electronics of early house music and ancestral rhythms of heathen drum machines. Chock full of wonky leftfield quirkiness and primitive sounding gear, the song is geared for the headz and the headphones and is so uniquely catchy and bouncy, it sounds more Jean Jacques Perry than Jacque Lu Cont.
The remix comes courtesy of NYC legends Rub ‘N’ Tug (Thomas Bullock and Eric Duncan), who create what will inevitably be one of the remixes of 2009, and no it is not too early to make that statement. They flip what might sound quaint into something sinister and ever-growing, a dark loopy anthemic interpretation that does nothing but help cement their status as the most creative and exciting remixers and musicians working today.
