Fur Coat Returns to Crosstown Rebels With New EP
Sergio Munoz and Israel Sunshine (a.k.a. Fur Coat) will release their latest EP, Berlin Chronicles, next month on Crosstown Rebels. You might have heard the tracks popping up in Fur Coat sets of late, with the duo testing the waters since BPM to great effect. “We’ve worked on the EP since coming back from BPM Festival in Mexico and have been hammering the tracks in every show.” The duo explains, “We feel each track has a real identity that fits amazingly well in our dj sets, creating some incredible moments on the dancefloor. The sound of this record is slightly different and one we feel super excited about. We believe it shows a slightly different, much techier and melodic side to our production. It’s just the starting point for our music this year.”
The three track EP will see release on 12″ on May 18, with a Beatport exclusive following that on May 25.
Scuba Embarks on 7 Stop North American Album Tour – Claustrophobia
Following up a year that saw him take time off touring and write his critically acclaimed 4th studio album, Claustrophobia, Paul Rose aka Scuba today announces a 7 stop album tour. As its name implies, Claustrophobia is tense and inward-looking, but it’s also rich and dynamic, nimbly moving through a panorama of moods and styles. Rhythms expand and contract from one song to the next, textural passages give way to shimmering strands of melody, found sounds and field recordings breathe life into ambient sketches. The album is modern and understated throughout, but also touched with something unrestrained: the exhilarating energy of classic rave. These nuances and juxtapositions come to vivid and audible fruition in Scuba’s performances, making this seven stop North American tour a must-see. Tickets are on sale on Resident Advisor.
