MODERN LOVE 2014
The best one in the series so far. The B side… heavy.
DEMDIKE STARE 2013
First cassette I bought in 15 years: a 70-minute mix of strange and obscure sounds by one of my favorite duos.
Sit back and enjoy… so, so good!
Whoa, this party is going to be mental: Andy Stott, Peter van Hoesen & the Demdike boys. Man, what an incredible line-up! I can’t wait to see Demdike Stare again. I saw them perfoming live at Unsound Festival in NYC earlier this year and they absolutely killed it.
More info here.
Just a quick heads up for those in or around Los Angeles this weekend: Three of my favorite acts will be performing at Los Globos in Silverlake this coming Saturday, May 5th: Demdike Stare, Tropic of Cancer and Vatican Shadow (live debut). I saw Demdike Stare live at Unsound in New York two weeks ago and they blew my mind. So, yeah.. this event is not to be missed if you can make it down there.
FINDERS KEEPERS, 2011
Taken from the compilation Make Do & Mend 02: Demdike Stare Supports Finders Keepers. This track is an exclusive edit of Billy Green’s “Toadstrip” from the excellent Stone soundtrack reissued by Finders Keepers back in 2009.
Just a quick heads up for those who happen to be in or around Berlin on November 11: Demdike Stare, Andy Stott, Tropic of Cancer and Emptyset will be playing live at the notorious Berghain alongside Milton Bradley, Raime and Opium Hum. This lineup is a no-brainer so be there if you can.
MODERN LOVE, 2011
Miles Whittaker’s (aka MLZ and one half of Demdike Stare, Pendle Coven) first solo release under his own name for the Manchester-based Modern Love imprint doesn’t disappoint. Facets is more club-friendly affair but it retains elements of Whittaker’s heavy dub-infused sound. Limited to 700 copies for the world. Massive!
To be honest, I’ve been so busy with work lately that I haven’t bought or listened to any new records in over a month. However, here’s a couple of mixes I’ve been enjoying recently.
Antworth Kirk & Demdike Stare – Dublab: Live Thursday Transmission (2011-06-02)
Another beautiful showcase of rare and obscure sounds, expertly curated by the mighty Antworth Kirk & Demdike Stare. Those guys truly never fail to impress me with their blend of obscurity and vintage electronics. Definitely a keeper.
Conforce – LWE Podcast 87
One of the hottest producers of 2011 delivers a bangin’ mix for the LWE guys.
DeepChord – DJB.157
Nice blend of deep and dubbed out techno courtesy of Rod Modell, aka Deepchord. The mix also features a track from his forthcoming LP on Soma Recordings. I can’t wait!
