Autograf Releases Remix of Lorde’s “Team”

“It’s been an inspirational summer for us and we wanted to maintain that feeling by starting this new “Future Tropical” series of song releases. It’s been a summer of many firsts where we went on our first tour, finished our first original songs, performed at our first festival, first boat party, and first lakefront show. It’s also been a summer of “making” and “building” stuff. In addition to making songs, we’ve been constructing the Autograf music and art studio in the backyard.

So it’s been a summer of coming together to put all our passion into this new project of ours. So for Issue 1 of “Future Tropical” we wanted to give you a bit of that spirit by remixing what has become a theme of ours these past couple of months, “Team” by Lorde. We love Future House and we love that Tropical House, so this is our Futuristic take using some of our favorite tropical instruments like steel drums, marimbas and flutes. Summer might technically be over, but for us it never ends. This is “Future Tropical”. Enjoy.” – Autograf.


Hear Plastikman’s alternative score for 1928 silent film Brumes d’automne

Techno overlord dips in to his Plastikman alias for unusual film soundtrack.

Richie Hawtin has shared his alternative score for Dimitri Kirsanoff’s Brumes d’automne, a French silent film from 1928.

Hawtin’s soundtrack, created under his Plastikman moniker, premiered at Centre Pompidou in Paris on September 19. The project was commissioned by French director Bertrand Bonello, who described the 12-minute film as “a breathtaking beauty, an emotion that few words can explain,” adding: “The original music is by Paul Devred. What would we see differently if the music was different?”

As well as Hawtin, Diana Soh and Bonello himself contributed alternative scores to the film for the event.

Hawtin returned to his Plastikman alias this year for a live album, EX, recorded at New York’s Guggenheim.
