Press Play: Atoms for Peace, Soul Clap Records, Kingdom, Bullion, and More
- Words: Patric Fallon
Once again, it was a busy week for new bits of audio and video on the internet, and Press Play is here to round up the best of it. Kingdom, Soul Clap, and Bondax are just a handful of the big names who offered up something enjoyable this week, but there are plenty more below. Take a look and start clicking those play buttons.
Thom Yorke doing interpretive dance? It happens in this new Atoms for Peace video for "Ingenue."
The Soul Clap Records gang is known for its party-starting methods behind the decks, but the label has sent along this video diary as an XLR8R exclusive. It's a sort of mini-documentary chronicling the crew's 2012 European tour, and something that proves that the guys are also a lot of fun outside the club. The label's latest release is an EP from Nick Monaco, which dropped a few weeks back.
Fade to Mind boss Kingdom offered up "Femme Litre," a new edit combining his own production with the sounds of Joey Beltram and DJ Nakaifma.
R&S-affiliated outfit Vondelpark will soon be releasing its debut LP, and has offered up this Bullion remix of first single "California Analog Dream" in the meantime.
London trio Eaux is relatively unknown, but somehow it convinced the sole surviving member of legendary experimental synth group Silver Apples to remix "Sneaux Flake."
Hotly tipped UK outfit Bondax unveiled the video for "Gold," a clip that combines a shower scene with the King Midas story and a scary scene from The Matrix.
Rising Dutch producer Applescal continues to keep busy. Most recently, he's posted this remix of "200 Words" by indie act Fol Chen.
OL & ¥OIN will soon be releasing a collaborative EP, and have offered up "Sink (Slick Shoota Remix)" as a sort of teaser.
Brooklyn-via-SF artist Jonas Reinhardt announced a new album, Mask of the Maker, which drops in April via Not Not Fun, and is streaming first single "Elimination Street" now.
'90s auteur Locust has returned to the music-making fold, and will soon be releasing You'll Always Be Safe on Editions Mego. In the meantime, this trippy breakdance video for "Strobes" has emerged.
There's always room in our playlist for some pristine electronic pop, particularly when it's as well executed as Vimes' "House of Deer."
