Hudson Mohawke Remixes Wiley's New 'Electric' Single

It's about damn time Wiley and Hudson Mohawke paired up on something, right? They've just been sitting around, living in such relatively close proximity, both being fans of wonky beats and next-level flows, and not putting their weird ideas together. Well, now that's all in past. Hudson Mohawke got his hands all over the new single from Wiley, "Electric Boogaloo," and did his whole 'over-caffeinated mystical forest creature with ADD at an all night rave in another dimension' thing. Wiley and his soulful diva friend are led through no less than four different beats—and god knows how many synths and random sound effects—with purpose and aplomb. It's not necessarily a dream come true, but more like the realization of a fantasy you didn't know you had. The remix is available to stream after the jump. (via FACT) Read more »

AGF & Gudrun Gut Present Greie Gut Fraktion's "Stadt Mixe"

AGF and Gudrun Gut, together known as Greie Gut Fraktion, will soon see the release of Baustelle, and to build anticipation for the record, the first single, "Stadt Mixe," is now available and features remixes from Alva Noto and Wolfgang Voigt. What makes the release even more interesting, though, is that "Wir bauen eine neue Stadt" was originally a track by Holger Hiller and Thomas Fehlmann's '80s project, Palais Schaumburg, so the first single actually consists of four producers remixing a cover version. If this eclectic aesthetic is any indication of what the rest of Baustelle will sound like, then fans of experimental electronics should be getting very excited for the June 18 record release date on Monika Enterprise. Check out the tracklisting for the single, which comes out May 21, after the jump! Read more »
