Hear the Second Single from Huxley’s Debut LP

Earlier this month, Huxley dropped “I Want You,” the first single from his forthcoming debut album, Blurred. Now, the longstanding UK house producer has shared details of the album’s second single, “Give 2 U.” The track reportedly finds Huxley ditching the four-on-the-floor structure that characterizes much of his current output, instead seeing him delve back into the rave and breakbeat he came up on. Vocals are provided byFemme (a.k.a. Laura Bettinson), a singer in Radiohead affiliate Nigel Godrich’s Ultraísta group.

Due out via Aus, the upcoming “Give 2 U” single will come equipped with a “guttural, dark garage bass” rework from Huxley himself, plus a second original track—”Soopafly”—and remixes from label boss Will Saul and Komon (returning to Aus following a collaborative EP with Appleblim released over the summer). Ahead of the single’s arrival on November 10, Huxley’s original version of “Give 2 U” can be heard in full below.

Marco Carola returns to North America for Halloween performances

Music On Halloween Announce

Techno fans rejoice: Marco Carola’s much anticipated return to the States is closer than you think. On October 31, Marco Carola will perform at Cipriani’s in New York, before traveling to Miami the next day, November 1, to DJ at Story. 

It’s been nearly a year since Marco Carola’s legendary residencies at Marquee New York and Story Miami, and the US is hungering for the return of the Italian techno star. His upcoming performances will be exactly what the US has missed: live, improvised, extended performances from the techno pioneer as he weaves through hours of dark, hypnotic techno and tech house. 

Supporting Carola in New York on Halloween will be rising tech house talents DJ V and Vanjee whom will be performing back-to-back. In Miami, he’s joined by Music On family members and revered Detroiters Shaun Reeves and Ryan Crosson, known for their powerfully alluring Visionquest performances.

Carola has spent the summer in Ibiza, creating some of the most magical and noted moments of the White Isle’s season. Three years since he left Cocoon to forge his own path, Marco Carola’s Music On continues to be the talk of the isle and dance music circles world-wide. This year’s Music On residency at Amnesia saw Carola performing week in and week out from the historic Terrace alongside artists like Joseph Capriati, Pan-Pot, Jamie Jones and more. Experience Music On for yourself this Halloween weekend.
