New Order plan new album

New Order plan to go into the studio next year to record their first album since 2005’s ‘Waiting For The Sirens Call’.

Speaking to Mixmag ahead of their headline set at last weekend’s Bestival, the band said they’d like to go into the studio next year and record an electronic synth record.

Lead singer, Bernard Sumner said, “We’ve not had time to do it this year as we’ve played so many gigs but next year we’re not going to play so many, so we’ll do it then.”

Sumner then went on to say, “I think I’d like to make an electronic synth album as the last few that I’ve done have been guitar albums.”

The band, who reformed last year without former bassist and founding member Peter Hook, have had a busy summer including shows at Sonar in Barcelona, Bestival, last weekend’s Festival No 6 as well as their very own headline tour.

Watch video footage of the interview below.

Tensnake unveils new single

Tensnake has just unveiled his new single.

‘Mainline’ featuring Syron is due out very soon via Defected and the label has dropped a tantalising snippet of the tune.

As you can hear for yourself below, the deep house maestro is in typically fine form, whipping together a big room banger that looks set to soundtrack the final Ibiza parties of the season.

Tensnake plays Defected In The House at Pacha Ibiza this Saturday, September 22.

Brenmar Readies New Single for Grizzly, Shares Preview

Earlier this summer, the New York-based, Chicago-bred talent Brenmar (a.k.a. Bill Salas) unveiled his FACT mix, which he stocked full of bass-heavy cuts of Southern hip-hop, silky R&B, and kneck-jerking rhythms like his own cover of Kevin Irving’s 1987 classic“Children of the Night,” which the producer has announced will see an official release viaSinden‘s Grizzly label on September 24. A slightly slower version of the tune, one that bursts with blunted bass tones and Kaleena Zander’s vibrant, husky vocals, will feature as the record’s b-side. You can check out previews of both sides before the single drops next week, below.

Native Instruments launch Premium Tube Series

Native Instruments is rolling out the Premium Tube Series, a collection of plugins meant to capture the warmth of tube-driven analog studio gear.

The package comes with three effects. The Passive EQ is a two-channel, four-band equalizer suitable for single-track processing all the way up to mastering applications. The Vari Comp, a compressor/limiter, features automatic ratio and knee adjustment that tweaks settings based on input. The Enhanced EQ, aimed at warming up the low-end on individual tracks, rounds out the package. 

The Premium Tube Series is NI’s second plugin bundle designed with the help of the emulation experts at Softube, the team of “Swedish rock ‘n’ roll scientists” who worked on the Vintage Compressor series.

The Premium Tube Series’ product page gives the complete rundown on each of the plugins.

The Native Instruments Premium Tube Series is available now at a suggested retail price of 199 Euro.
