Shuttle is the newest project of Nathan Donmoyer, best known as the drummer of electro-pop group Passion Pit. He’s recently collaborated with Isom Innis of Foster the People for the new single, “Halo,” and from the sound of this teaser, he’s taken some influence from his experiences with the Massachusetts-based band and added a bit of dance music flare. Preview “Halo” below and keep an eye out for its official release September 3rd on Ninja Tune Records! Continue Reading

In an interview just posted today on the Dazed & Confused website, UK producer Slugabed was described as a “future-past beat maker.” At first, I wasn’t exactly sure what that entailed, but after listening to some of his back catalogue, it clicked. The Fruity Loops user incorporates a barrage of influences — citing Science Fiction novelist Phillip K. Dick to The Beach Boys as having an impact on his music-making process. Today, Slugabed has been kind enough to give away a most beautiful remix from Lapalux for his most recent single, ‘Mountains Come Out of the Sky,’ which saw its release on Ninja Tune earlier this month. Grab the remix below and head over to Beatport to snag the original. √+ Continue Reading

Just got my mits on debut album Running High from Montreal based producer Poirier. Signed to Ninja Tune, this guy’s pushing an awesome sound; his influences stem from dancehall soca-electro to tropical. The first disc on Running High features Poirier’s set of originals, including the massive ‘Wha-La-La-Leng’, a track featuring some well known samples which will make even the most idle Major Lazer fan piss themselves. The second, is a remix disc featuring reworks from names such as Baobinga, Wildlife! and Hugo Douster – it’s not a bonus disc I feel like turning into a coaster for my beer, so a big win on that front. Ninja Tune are definitely a label to watch out for in the coming months, having recently signed Toddla T for the release of his second record, set to drop later this year. Although they’ve been around for years, I’ve a feeling these guys are set to be the European rival to Mad Decent in 2010, with the amount of dancehall driven electro they’re pushing. Back to Poirier though, this week he’s playing on the West-Coast and you can catch him at one of the following shows:

Wednesday May 26: Low End Theory, The Airliner – Los Angeles, CA
Thursday May 27: Momo Lounge – Sacramento, CA
Friday May 28: Smash! Party, Forbes KTV – Las Vegas, NV
Saturday May 29: Suraya Dub, Club Six – San Francisco, CA
