Theo Parrish, Robert Hood, Jackmaster, Oneman, Marcel Dettmann, Kelela, and More Join the Dimensions 2014 Line-Up

Though it only launched in 2012, Croatia's Dimensions Festival has quickly become of one the world's more anticipated events, at least among fans of quality electronic music. The 2014 festivities were first announced in December, along with an initial line-up boasting the likes of Mala, Caribou, Jon Hopkins, Om Unit, and Vatican Shadow. Additional artists have been enlisted in the months that followed, and today, the bill received another shot in the arm, thanks to another round of additions. Read more »

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. Thankfully, the Canadian experimentalist has now announced his return, unveiling the details of a brand-new album called My Love Is a Bulldozer. Read more »

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.

Download: Lorenzo Kurizu "Lauwerecht"

First Listen
Label: Neovinyl

Lorenzo Kurizu's "Lauwerecht" production makes for an inviting eight minutes, with its airy chords and light melodies balanced by a rounded bass and deep-reaching kicks. Though, what keeps Kurizu's extended work moving is the Dutch producer's methodical use of textured percussion, as he places grainy hats, dusty clicks, and fast-paced machine rumbles between the cut's otherwise simple four-on-the-floor. "Lauwerecht" is one of two new tracks from the budding Utrecht-based producer set to appear on his Cinta EP for the Neovinyl imprint. Dropping later this month, the rest of Kurizu's upcoming EP can be previewed after the jump.  Read more »

Unreleased Album from Aphex Twin to Be Sold on Kickstarter and eBay

In 1998, iconic UK artist Richard D. James issued a 13-track excursion into the depths of his acid obsession which compiled together four previously released EPs produced under his Caustic Window alias. And though he certainly went on to make loads more music in a similar style, the famously prolific artist never released another record with that moniker. Fans have long hypothesized about the existence of lost albums and unreleased tracks from Aphex Twin and his many projects with nothing to show for it, but it would seem that a previously unheard album from Caustic Window is now going to see the light of day.
