Deadboy Announces Upcoming EP for Numbers, Shares Video for New Track

Download: Applescal "The Veil"

Label: Atomnation

Dutch-born, Berlin-based producer Applescal has launched a new digital single series via his own Atomnation imprint, and serving as its first installment is "The Veil," a methodical and somber piece of techno built around a dark rhythmic core and expanded upon by hazy, wordless vocals, swirling FX, and subtle melodic embellishments. Chugging ceaselessly forward for much of its run, "The Veil" eventually begins to unfold in its final minutes, peeling back its drum programming to reveal a bubbling well of granulated bell sounds and long-winded vocals that reach deep into the production's wide sonic landscape. With "The Veil" as its inaugural release, Applescal's single series is said to continue in the weeks to come over on Atomnation's Bandcamp page.

Podcast 337: Joey Anderson

Over the past few years, a small cadre of veteran New York and New Jersey DJs—including the likes of Levon Vincent, DJ Qu, Jus-Ed, Anthony Parasole, and Fred P.—has risen to prominence, and while these artists' individual styles may vary, there's still a loose philosophy, or at least a shared set of values, tying them together. Taking a deeply measured, historically informed, and intensely musical approach to the dancefloor, this group has opened the door for other like-minded producers to reach a wider audience. Joey Anderson is one such producer, and after filling 2013 with a string of high-quality 12"s and EPs, the New Jersey native and former Bubblin' Up subject has just dropped his debut full-length, After Forever, via the Dekmantel label. The album is an excellent piece of work, so much so that we wanted to hear more of what Anderson had up his sleeve. As such, we invited him to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series. Read more »
