Claude VonStroke Taps Dixon, Jimmy Edgar, Photek, Eprom, and More for 'Urban Animal' Remix LP

Last year's Urban Animal was pitched as Claude VonStroke's most personal album to date. It was certainly a diverse effort, one that touched upon a variety of styles and tempos and even found the producer born Barclay Crenshaw reaching back to his drum & bass roots. Next month, he'll be issuing Urban Animal RMXS via his own Dirtybird label, and the 12-track collection appears to have been put together in a similarly diverse manner. Read more »

Download: Perera Elsewhere "Drunk Man (Prefuse 73 AA Meditation Mix)"

First Listen

Berlin-based artist Perera Elsewhere (a.k.a. Sasha Perera) recently shared a free stream of "Light Bulb (Shlohmo Remix)," which will appear on the deluxe edition of her Everlast LP on May 6 via Friends of Friends. Now, she is offering up another forthcoming cut with "Drunk Man (Prefuse 73 AA Meditation Mix)," which sees longstanding beatmaker Prefuse 73 (pictured above) give Perera Elsewhere's tune a dreamy makeover. Conjuring a brilliant assortment of delicately soaring synth arpeggios, plucked strings, and a hypnotically fluid bassline, the astral tune is overlaid with Perera's fragile vocals that resonate flawlessly atop Prefuse 73's feathery production.

Venetian Snares Announces New LP for Planet Mu, Readies North American Tour

Veteran producer Aaron Funk's Venetian Snares alias has been off the radar for over two years now, since he delivered 2012's Fool the Detector EP and the self-released Affectionate earlier that year. Even his various monikers, such as the acid-focused Last Step, have remained quiet.

Livity Sound Enlists Ron Morelli, Svengalisghost, and Beneath to Remix Peverelist and Kowton

The trio of Peverelist, Kowton, and Asusu, collectively known as Livity Sound, garnered plenty of acclaim last year with its self-titled debut LP, and if the group's recently launched remix series—which kicked off with one installment from MMM and Pangaea and followed it with a double dose of A Made Up Sound—continues to maintain such a high level of quality, it's likely that the Bristol-based outfit's 2014 will be filled with just as many kudos.
