Jerome LOL Announces North American Tour with Oneman, Gives Away New Edit

Following the release of his debut solo EP, Deleted/Fool, LA producer (and former XLR8R podcast contributor) Jerome LOL (a.k.a. Jerome Potter) has kept himself rather busy, spending a lot of time on the DJ circuit and continuing to build the Body High label with co-founder Samo Sound Boy. Next month, Potter will be extending this active streak, as he'll be embarking on a two-week jaunt around North America alongside UK selector and Rinse FM standout Oneman. Read more »

Stream Another New Track from Four Tet's Upcoming Percussions 12"s

Earlier this week, Four Tet (a.k.a. Kieran Hebden) surprised everyone with an announcement that his Text label would soon be releasing a new trio of 12"s. One of the three will feature sounds from a largely unknown producer named Taraval, but the other two will contain music from Four Tet himself, operating under the name Percussions. At the time, Hebden also posted a stream of one of the Percussions tunes, "Blatant Water Cannon." Yesterday, he added to the anticipation by sharing a stream of an additional track, "Ascii Bot."

Watch a Tripped-Out Video from Thug Entrancer

Earlier this year, Chicago producer Thug Entrancer (a.k.a. Ryan McRhyhew) mixed footwork, IDM, and analog hardware on Death After Life, his potently creative LP debut on Software. Now he’s revisiting that album with a video for "Death After Life VI," an atmospheric track that split off from that record’s dominant juke-centric theme. Read more »

Download: Pamina "Blue Mountain"

Budding French duo Pamina (a.k.a. Nils Malgoyre and Pierre Romat) recently shared a mixtape in conjuction with fledgling UK outpost Lost Tribe, and will soon see its When We Were Young EP hit the stands on May 5 via the same label. Preceding that release, the Bordeaux-based pair has given us the feathery "Blue Mountain" from the aforementioned mix. The six-minute tune prominently features lightly skittering synths and distorted low-end tones, all of which are accented with gentle percussive arrangements and twinkling beeps. In addition to "Blue Mountain," Pamina's intriguingly eclectic Lost Tribe Mixtape can be streamed and downloaded for free after the jump.  Read more »

Download: D.E. "Tyvn"

Label: TAR

LA label TAR's semi-regular free EP series returns to the fold with a new effort from hometown producer D.E.. "Tyvn" opens the three-track Samadhi Vol. 1 EP by loosely cobbling together a collection of disparate rhythmic elements—thick hats pulse atop the mix while overdriven kicks rumble below, leaving plenty of space for D.E.'s assortment of snaps, claps, and clicks to explore the rest of the sonic field. The SoCal producer's assemblage of percussion is joined only by a sparse collection of additional elements, as the spacious beat implements a handful of pads and echoed vocal snippets to ride out its two-plus-minute run. The rest of D.E.'s EP for TAR is now free to download via the label's Bandcamp.
