Press Play: Boards of Canada, Nicolas Jaar, Zed Bias, Bondax, and More
We don't really need to try very hard to sell this edition of Press Play; the names behind the audio and video in the players embedded after the jump speak for themselves. So, if fresh sights and sounds from the likes of Boards of Canada, Bondax, Lee Gamble, Mano Le Tough, Breach, John Talabot, Zed Bias, Nicolas Jaar, Egyptrixx, Claude VonStroke, and Deetron seem like a winning proposition, we suggest that all interested parties get to pressing those play buttons ASAP.
Check out this playlist of Boards of Canada-approved fan videos, featuring music from the Scottish duo's forthcoming vinyl re-issues for Warp.
In this snazzy player, fans can listen to the first 11 minutes of the upcoming LP from Nicolas Jaar's Darkside band with guitarist Dave Harrington.
Scrufizzer's forthcoming "Kick It" single for Black Butter (out Oct 6) gets a big remix treatment from veteran 2-stepper Zed Bias—who actually produced the original version of the track, too—and we're pleased to be premiering today.
Greco-Roman boss Joe Goddard dropped a stream of his melodically shuffling remix of Bondax's "Giving It All" single this week.
Immediately after we discovered that John Talabot and Pional would be releasing a brand-new collaborative track under the name Lost Scripts for Young Turks' new 12" series, we're treated to a full stream of the smooth and bubbly "I'll Be Watching You."
At the behest of Self-Titled, PAN artist Lee Gamble recently delivered this intriguing, hour-and-a-half mix to stream and download.
Canadian producer Egyptrixx came seemingly out of nowhere this week, uploading an elastic cut of rough techno called "Water" to his SoundCloud.
Though Claude VonStroke's latest single has been available to preview for a short while now, it only became available as a free download this week.
Swiss DJ/producer Deetron had a busy week, releasing his "Count on Me" single as the 50th record issued by the Aus imprint and announcing the full details of his sophomore LP, Music Over Matter.
Another premiere we're pleased to present today is Hivern affiliate New Jackson's funky and bouncing remix of "Please" from Mano Le Tough's 2013 LP, Changing Days.
Here's an exuberant remix of Breach's latest breakout single, "Jack," from East Coast partystarters Tittsworth and Alex Eljaiek, which can be downloaded for the price of a "Like" on Facebook.
