It’s the day before Thanksgiving and things are looking great as we enter into the holiday season. I have a new trailer for Porter Robinson’s mini-documentary, info on Magnetic Man’s next album, Aus music invading Fabric, M83 on Fallon, and the Mixmag drugs survey, all conveniently packed into today’s GDD™ Morning Update. Please enjoy after the jump.
Well, I was going to get this post up when I received it a couple weeks ago, but I think Thanksgiving leftovers stole my full attention. Anyway, Jen Bloom is a New York songwriter/vocalist now living in Los Angeles and has just released her debut EP on Monstr Music this past month. It’s a refreshing blend of pop and disco with an 80′s vibe that no one can argue with. Included on the EP are a pair of remixes from some names that I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of before; each putting their own stamp on the poppy original. Jen Bloom will be releasing her first full length album in 2011, so keep an eye out. Also, if you want to pick up the stems for the original make sure you hit up the Monstr Music Soundcloud.
For months now, we’ve been waiting for the new record from Magnetic Man; the world’s first dubstep supergroup comprised of Benga, Skream and Artwork. On Saturday night they threw down an Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, which features a bunch of tracks off their forthcoming album, due out on October 4th. Due to the number of dubplates and unreleased material in the mix, there’s still a grip of tracks unidentified – if you know what any are, add them to the comments below.
