[VIDEO] Simian Mobile Disco “Species Out of Control”
Before the longstanding production duo Simian Mobile Disco unveils its new live show to the first North American audience on September 1 at FYF Fest, we’re treated to a suitable dark music video for “Species Out of Control,” one of the excellent cuts lifted from James Ford’s and James Shaw’s XLR8R Pick’d Unpatterns LP. What initially looks like headlights racing down a dark road (à la David Lynch’s Lost Highway) gradually morphs into something more akin to a patently geometric DMT hallucination or maybe an alternate version of 2001: A Space Odyssey’s time-travel scene. It’s yet another mind-bending visual piece that matches seamlessly with Simian Mobile Disco’s uniquely crafted and bubbling dance music.
Hot Natured Release New Single “Benediction”
Hot Natured will release new single ‘Benediction’ on October 29.
Hot Natured – aka house music brothers-from-another-mother Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Ali Love and Luca C – will release an album in Spring 2013 and this is the first sign of activity from the project in the run up to the LP.
Jamie Jones has been playing the tune at his Paradise party at DC10 in Ibiza all summer long, so if you haven’t heard it yet, you know what to expect from ‘Benediction’. It continues that lush, poolside sound that Jones and the crew are renowned for.
The quartet have written their new album between sessions in Los Angeles, London and Ibiza and if this single is anything to go by, it’s going to be a sizzling affair. Which is just how we like it.
Miguel Campbell Announces Debut US Tour
Leeds-based house artist Miguel Campbell will head out on his first US tour in September.
Campbell will be touring in support of Back In Flight School, his debut LP due for release on Hot Creations in October. He’ll show off his pop and disco-flavored sound in seven cities, beginning with a Wednesday night party in Boston on September 12th. A couple days later he’ll play at Verboten in New York with fellow house hotshots Wolf + Lamb and Soul Clap, then he’ll be back in Miami for a night at theElectric Pickle, also featuring San Francisco trio PillowTalk, before taking on a Sunday party in Chicago. San Francisco and Denver are on the itinerary for the following week before Campbell wraps things up on Sunday the 23rd in LA at Culprit Session on the Standard Hotel Rooftop with Subb-an and Droog
