Hudson Mohawke Announces New Album for Warp, Shares Teaser Video

Hudson Mohawke has revealed plans to return to Warp with Lantern, an album the producer himself says, “is everything I’ve been working towards.” The 14-track LP is set to arrive in June and will bring with it a handful of featured artists, including likes of Miguel, Antony, and Jhené Aiko, among others. “I wanted to make a classic—at least for me and my friends,” Mohawke further explains of the album in a press release. “I never wanted to be any genre.

Todd Terje to release KC & The Sunshine Band edits for Record Store Day


The Todd Terje disco edit is always a stamp of quality.

His slinky, slow-burning take on KC & The Sunshine Band’s ‘I Get Lifted’ should be a fixture on everyone’s YouTube playlists already, but now we’ve got another chance to actually own the record as it get its first official issue through Miami’s TK Disco next month.

The 10″ will feature the original track backed with Terje’s edit pressed on yellow vinyl, and TK Disco is also releasing the Norwegian producer’s take on KC & The Sunshine Band’s ‘I’m Your Boogie Man’, last seen on a Mindless Boogie 10″ back in 2007. That one comes on green vinyl.

Both 10″s are out on April 18 for Record Store Day, limited to 500 copies.

Autograf Releases First Original Song, “Dream”

Chicago natives, Jake, Louis and Mikul AKA Autograf, have stormed the ramparts of electronic music with a relentless wave of incredible remixes over the past 12 months. Scoring countless Hype Machine no. 1’s and getting tipped by everyone from Billboard to Dancing Astronaut as one of “Top 25 Acts To Watch In 2015”, the time has finally come for the trio to emerge into the limelight with their first original production – ‘Dream’.

‘Dream’ is arguably their finest work thus far, as it truly showcases Autograf’s ability to create a track featuring a broad range of emotive musical elements. Swirling in with a smooth marimba intro, the glistening vocals lead the melody into jubilation while it gradually builds into the lively ‘Future House’ sound that we have grown to expect from Autograf. In lieu of a sultry bass line, the group’s creative genius shines with their layering of diverse percussions, mallet instrumentals and hypnotizing piano arrangement throughout.

‘Dream’ is the first of many brand new releases that will herald the start of an exciting new chapter as Autograf graduates from being the go-to remix team to the standalone artists in their own right. With this sun kissed sound delivery, Autograf will now also be heading on tour with their unique live show to support Klingande on six stops across North America and multiple stops during Miami Music Week where they will be playing at Odesza’s NO.SLEEP after party and many others!
