Premiere: FTSE – Blood On My Hands by i-D

This is music I love. Here is the soundcloud description below. Enjoy!
The revolution will be tweeted… and soundtracked by FTSE. Long-time fans of the talented Midlands born and raised chap, we are more than pleased to present Blood On My Hands, the first track from his debut album due for release via Lucky Number this summer. With past EPs presenting the work of FTSE aka Sam Manville as a producer (collaborations with artists such as Kenzie May, Saint Savoir and Femme ran the length of the records), this release marks the very clear direction of FTSE the artist. With the support of a full band behind him, his brutally honest lyrics and anti-capitalist musings are self-deprecating anthems for modern society, topped with – as all the best things are – catchy poppy choruses. Blood On My Hands comments on the exploitation behind consumerism, delivered with stabbing synth horns and a pause for some reflective and rather beautiful harmonies. Join FTSE at London’s Electrowerkz on 26th May.

The Boom Room: Episode 026
Broadcast Date: Saturday, November 29 2014

“Music is emotion, and through electronic music emotions are transferred more easily when the sound is warm and organic as opposed to canned and cold.” The former is the irrefutable conviction of Jan Blomqvist. This artist is a Berlin-based live act, whose signature melancholic vocals, introspective melodies and lush beats are celebrated throughout the international dance music scene. With his band he performs dance-oriented electronic pop; as a solo artist, vocal techno.

We expect to see much more of this musical chameleon regarding releases and performances in the not too distant future. For now, escape your struggles with this one-hour journey through melancholic vocals and uplifting surprises

Love Over Entropy “Tonii (Dixon Retouch)” – Boiler Room Debuts by BOILER ROOM

This is music I love. Here is the soundcloud description below. Enjoy!
Nuno dos Santos’ boutique label SoHaSo (shorthand for Something Happening Somewhere; although, sadly the same can no longer be said of Trouw) has been cruising steadily for the best part of two years now, but “Tonii” might just be the best thing committed to wax yet. Love Over Entropy’s 12m original is sturdy with bright flourishes throughout, forever climbing and searching without resolve; techy without, y’know, being techy.

This retouch comes from none other than Innervisions’ main man, although less overtly lovelorn than we’ve come to expect. He twists the lead melody into something resembling a steel pan drum, backed by laser-guided synths pinging all around: a festival-sized breakdown held just at the precipice, never fully cresting. Dixon, you big tease.
