Download: The Slow Revolt "Twin"

First Listen
Label: FIELDS

We first heard from Joe Mirza (a.k.a. The Slow Revolt) earlier this year when the London producer/vocalist joined the ranks of the FIELDS label (who also released Max Cooper's debut LP earlier this year) with his two-track Never Get Close single. Soon, Mirza will return to the UK imprint with All Your Own, another two-track single which features the intricate "Twin" production as its b-side cut. Setting aside his vocal talents in order to craft an instrumental outing, here Mirza builds a full-bodied track from thick kick drums, detailed percussion, and precise bass notes—all of which provide a sturdy base for chained patterns of restless synth melodies to lead the excursion. The Slow Revolt's second effort for FIELDS, All Your Own, is slated to land on October 20.

Download: Soul of Hex "Lip Reading (Larry Heard Midnight Remix)"

First Listen
Label: CVMR

Soul of Hex is the collaborative project of 4004 and Sebastien Vorhaus, two producers currently based in Tijuana, Mexico. Together the pair will issue its Lip Reading EP via the Mexico City-based CVMR imprint next month, offering a single original track alongside remixes from Vin Sol, Ny*Ak, and a pair of reworks from Chicago house veteran Larry Heard (a.k.a. Mr. Fingers). Featured here is Heard's "Midnight Remix" which finds the time-tested talent digging a bit deeper into Soul of Hex's "Lip Reading," placing a low-rolling groove beneath the track's hi-fi percussion clicks and jazzy keyboards. Dropping on October 14, the rest of Soul of Hex's Lip Reading EP can be previewed after the jump.  Read more »
