Hear a New Production from Todd Edwards

Pulled from Oneman‘s upcoming Solitaire Vol. 3 mixtape, a new production from house stalwart Todd Edwards is now available to stream in full. Billed as “his first garage track in years,” Edwards’ “I’m Not Afraid” finds the veteran producer/DJ chopping and repitching a number of soul-striped samples across his skipping new effort—in other words, the track is a welcome reminder of the style of garage the formerly New Jersey-based artist spent so many years honing.

Edwards’ “I’m Not Afraid” can be streamed in its entirety below before Oneman’sSolitaire Vol. 3 mixtape drops on September 29. In addition, the garage pioneer’s 2013 mix for our Innovators series can be streamed/downloaded here.

Aphex Twin Talks ‘Syro,’ Gear, ’90s Rave Culture, and More in Extensive New Interview


In the lead up to Syro—the forthcoming first Aphex Twin LP to appear in 13 years—details have seemed to trickle down in fragments, falling in line with the elusive producer’s convoluted backstory and general reticence (if not disdain) for conventional interviews and press. Today however, a new interview sheds light on the enigmatic artist that is Aphex Twin, finding him discussing his forthcoming LP, gear, his fondness of ’90s rave culture, and more. Penned by Philip Sherburne for Pitchfork, the five-part interview also sees Aphex Twin discussing his fascination with sound and hinting at future projects, while confirming that he currently resides in Scotland; he even goes on to call jungle “the ultimate genre.” Pitchfork’s extensive Cover Story interview with the pioneering electronic producer can be read in its entirety here.

Trentemøller tours the US and Canada in November


Come November, much-loved Danish producer Trentemøller will hit the road with his band for a fifteen-stop tour of the US and Canada.

This trip, in support of Trentemøller’s latest album Lost (which came out a year ago this month, and which recently got the remix treatment) follows a shorter springtime visit for the group—and, according to a Facebook post, these will be the only North American shows “for a very long time.”

It starts at Washington DC’s Howard Theatre on November 6th, and runs through the Northeastern US on a path to Canadian gigs in Montreal and Toronto. The Midwest is next, by way of Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis. From there, the band will swing through Denver and then finish up with five West Coast concerts, the last of which will happen at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on the 26th.
