Allison Wonderland – Fuck U Love U

Alison Wonderland, one of electronic music’s most adored producer/DJ’s, closes out 2021 with her new single “Fuck U Love U.” The song is a masterclass in tension and relief with a tough as nails hook and Alison’s stargazing, fragile vocals more ‘upfront’ than ever. Listen HERE and watch the lyric video, which was directed by electro-pop singer/producer/songwriter Elohim, HERE.

Excitement hit fever pitch after Alison teased the track at her multi-night sold out Red Rocks shows and her strong performance at Lollapalooza. “Fuck U Love U,” inspired by the sounds of Kanye and Whyte Fang, is a soaring and spiritual track which highlights themes of polarity and duality of man as Alison sings of her journey through the music industry. 

Alongside writing, recording, and producing furiously from lockdown, 2020/2021 has been far from a write-off for Alison. She created a five-star sanctuary in Animal Crossing, talked paranormal stuff with Loserfruit on Twitch, did a number of acclaimed sets from lockdown e.g., Digital Mirage + Lollapalooza, continued producing her globally broadcast radio show Radio Wonderland plus started a side hustle as a Youtuber. Earlier this year Alison ventured into the NFT space going live with a fantasy themed NFT project called ‘Wonderquest.’ You can read more about it: HERE.  Alison sold over $3 MILLION AUD in the initial sale and for a period the collection was Top 20 in the world. One of the rare “dragons” originally sold for $350 AUD now sells for over 10K AUD.

About Alison Wonderland

Since emerging in 2009, Alison Wonderland‘s sound has quietly inched towards mainstream ubiquity as the sonic sorceress received the “Highest Female DJ Billing Ever at Coachella,” captured #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart twice consecutively (debut album ‘Run’ and sophomore album ‘Awake), headlined sold out arenas around the globe plus headlined stages at the biggest festivals in the world, and clocked upwards of 500   million streams.

Grinding it out with regular night club sets around Australia and a series of remixes for everyone from Little Dragon to Justin Bieber, she ignited an international splash in 2015 with the full-length debut, Run. Not only did it reach gold status down under, but it earned a pair of nominations at the ARIA Awards. Arriving with a bang, she made her live introduction stateside at Coachella. Fast forward to 2017, she achieved the “Best New Artist” honor at the first-ever Electronic Dance Music Awards, while her remix of Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” soared to #1 on the Billboard Dance Charts.

Alison‘s 2018 sophomore effort, Awake, levelled up every element. She joined forces with an all-star cast of collaborators such as Joel Little [Lorde], Illangelo [The Weeknd], Party Favor [Mad Decent], and longtime cohort Lido. She teamed up with innovators including Chief Keef on “Dreamy Dragon” and Trippie Redd on “High.” The record became the multi-talented phenomenon’s second straight #1 bow on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart as “Church” leapt past the 14 million-mark on Spotify in a few months’ time, leading her to become Billboard Dance’s ‘Breakout Artist of 2018’ and the magazine’s 2019 Dance Issue cover star.

In 2019, between headline slots at festivals around the world, Alison also played her own headline concerts which sold over 100,000 tickets globally ߝ most recently selling out two acclaimed shows at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado (filmed in multi-camera 4K VR) in addition to producing and self-promoting her own worldwide ‘Wonderland Warehouse Project’ tour.

Simultaneously, Alison’s Radio Wonderland show clocked 5 million-plus iTunes downloads as well as broadcasting to over 20 countries and featuring prominently on the Sirius XM channel Diplo’s Revolution.

Lakou Mizik × Joseph Ray

Anjunadeep warmly welcomes DJ Koze for his Anjunadeep debut with his remix of Lakou Mizik & Joseph Ray’s ’Sanba Yo Pran Pale’.

One of electronic music’s most beloved artists, DJ Koze runs the acclaimed Pampa Records, where he puts out his own music alongside material from the likes of Mano Le Tough, Axel Boman and Robag Wruhme. His 2018 album ‘Knock Knock’, released on Pampa, was named as Pitchfork’s 3rd best album of the year, whilst his single ‘Pick Up’ was named track of the year by both Resident Advisor and Mixmag. Known for his inventive production style, he has remixed Gorillaz, Mount Kimbie, Moderat and Lapsley, and collaborated with Róisín Murphy, Bon Iver, José González, Caribou and Matthew Dear.

’Sanba Yo Pran Pale’ is Kosi’s first remix in two years and is typically eclectic. Reimagining the traditional Vodou song as a summer dance anthem, warping and stretching the original vocals from Lakou Mizik’s Sanba Zao onto a bed of catchy rhythmic synths and warm enveloping bass. Ten minutes long, the original mix has a nostalgic analogue warmth that feels perfect for an Indian summer’s day. To celebrate the release, Anjunadeep is pressing a limited run of white label vinyl, which are available for pre-order now.

About Leave the Bones

’Sanba Yo Pran Pale’ is the first track off Lakou Mizik & Joseph Ray’s album Leave the Bones, and is a traditional Haitian song steeped in Vodou tradition: “The Sanbas are the poets and keepers of Haitian history and culture. They pass on their wisdom through song and story. ‘Sanba Yo Pran Pale’ is an invitation to the Sanbas to speak their truth whilst paying respect to the Vodou ‘Lwa’ or spirits.”

Referred to by NPR as a “mesmerizing, haunting and uplifting journey into the heart of Haitian culture”, Leave the Bones has accrued 1M streams on Spotify and Apple Music and has garnered a wealth of global support from the tastemakers such as BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, The Times, Billboard, Crack Magazine, Mixmag, Songlines, The New York Times, and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM. It is out now, available digitally and as a 2 x 12” LP.

Johnny Mar – Spirit, Power and Soul

Johnny Marr returns with “Spirit, Power And Soul”, the first new music from his forthcoming double album, and fourth solo full-length record, titled Fever Dreams Pts 1-4.

Watch the video for “Spirit, Power And Soul.”

Informed by the kind of powerful, anthemic and direct approach to words instantly present in “Spirit, Power And Soul”, the songs on the Fever Dreams Pt 1 EP arrive with an emotional potency. Fusing the language of soul music with his roots as a “Mancunian glam rocker”, lyrics that could be simultaneously personal and universal, with a high energy electro sound. The new EP reflects Marr‘s multifaceted past, but takes his music somewhere startlingly new.

Speaking about the new single, Marr says, “Spirit, Power And Soul’ is a kind of mission statement. I had an idea about an electro sound with gospel feeling, in my own words, an electro soul anthem.”

The Fever Dreams Pt 1 EP will be released digitally, and on limited edition 12″ silver vinyl via BMG from October 15th. The double album release date, and more details, are soon to be announced. 

Looking to 2022, Johnny Marr was recently announced as the special guest on The Killers North American arena tour set to begin in August through to October 2022—all dates HERE.  Before that, Johnny will play a short sold out headline tour at intimate venues across the UK in September, ahead of joining The Courteeners at a sold out show at Manchester’s 50k capacity Old Trafford. The dates will mark Johnny’s return to the live stage, and first shows since performing “No Time To Die” with Billie Eilish and long-standing collaborator Hans Zimmer live at the 2019 BRIT Awards.

Marr‘s solo career has given rise to three critically acclaimed UK Top Ten albums – The Messenger (2013), Playland (2014) and 2018’s Call The Comet. His continued creative journey has seen him at the heart of The The, Electronic, Modest Mouse and The Cribs, as well as working with The Pretenders, Talking Heads, The Avalanches, and most recently Billie Eilish, recording the score and soundtrack for the forthcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die with Hans Zimmer.

Time Warp Brooklyn 2021 Lineup

Time Warp Announces 2021 USA Lineup 

Featuring Âme, Nina Kraviz, Ricardo Villalobos b2b Craig Richards, Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler b2b Special Guest, KiNK (live), Stephan Bodzin (live), Adriatique, Ben Klock b2b Marcel Dettmann, Paula Temple, Pan-Pot, Kobosil, Reinier Zonneveld (live), DESNA, Avision, mink b2b O.BEE, and Shahar

TICKETS NOW ON SALE

Continuing its legacy as what the New York Times referred to as a pilgrimage event on the global techno calendar, Time Warp today, in partnership with long-term NYC collaborators Teksupport, announced the bill for its return to New York this Fall, following a two year hiatus. its new Brooklyn location will play host to two days of audiovisual technical immersion soundtracked by some of house and techno’s top talent. 

Time Warp will showcase a mélange of underground heroes from around the world, including several who’ve become central pillars to the event and its community over its storied 27 year history. Global scene shaper and recent Prada collaborator Richie Hawtin reprises his headlining role—a duty he’s carried on with diligence since Time Warp’s 1995 Mannheim debut. Chilean iconoclast veteran Ricardo Villalobos makes a return as well, this time alongside longtime b2b partner and Tyrant co-founder Craig Richards. Villalobos remains a rare delicacy stateside, but thanks to his deep-rooted ties to the Time Warp and Teksupport families, fans have been able to witness his brilliance twice in New York the past seven years. 

Âme, whose Time Warp legacy kicked off in 2007 brings a slice of Berlin house to the party. Second State owners Pan-Pot also represent Berlin, alongwith Ostgut Ton/Berghain figureheads Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann for a rare b2b—all three of whom were inducted into the family in 2012. Seth Troxler rounds out the list of historic talents to grace the roster. The political activist, multilabel head, and Lost Souls of Saturn member has been an annual fixture at Time Warp’s flagship Mannheim event since 2011

Techno always takes center stage at Time Warp New York, with all sides of the spectrum covered by its all-star cast. On the melodic end, Afterlife stalwarts Adriatique are set to bring their expertise to the decks, while virtuoso Stephan Bodzin will bring a full hardware kit to the show. Industrial aficionados will enjoy performances by Paula Temple, Kobosil, and a live showing by Reinier Zonneveld. International superstar Nina Kraviz will serve up her signature high-tempo mix of techno and electro cuts, while KiNK will showcase his impressive penchant for improvisation on his array of keyboards and synths. 

Time Warp’s communal ethos extends to the cities it touches, as such, New York talent will be spotlighted with local mainstays DESNA, Avision, Shahar, mink, and O.BEE on display. 

Since its 2014 debut in New York, Time Warp has made the city a second home with local impresario Teksupport as its chosen partner. Its 2019 return saw fans gathered from across the nation to celebrate 25 years of Time Warp, which also marked the first large-scale underground dance music event to happen in the Bronx. The results were massive, ushering in a new era for the global brand and a bright chapter for American house and techno enthusiasts. Following a forced two year break since, fans can expect peak energy for its grand 2021 return.

Teksupport has produced some of New York’s most unique and exciting parties of recent years. They have scouted the city to unearth new locations, throwing parties in submarine factories, navy yards, subterranean ballrooms and industrial warehouses, building a reputation for pairing raw spaces with world class event production. Their 2021 summer season played a role in reasserting the city’s prominence as an underground dance music mecca, hosting the likes of DJ Tennis, The Martinez Brothers, Sven Väth, Guy Gerber, Dixon, Perel, and more. 

Time Warp’s return to New York will follow its prodigal return to Mannheim October 30 2021 before heading south to its Brazil HQ of São Paulo. Head to their website for more information on their international events and to sign up for tickets. 

See you on the dance floor….

Culture Wars – teche

Austin, TX trio Culture Wars share the release of their debut EP, teche, along with their latest single “Lose Money” from the EP.  The band, Alex Dugan, David Grayson, and Dillion Randolph have amassed over 7 million streams independently, inciting a flurry of activity on TikTok charting a top 30 on Alternative radio.

The band shares about the track, “’Lose Money’ is one of those songs that could have easily not have happened. After I tracked a handful of vocal ideas at Sonic Ranch in El Paso, it took our producer Caleb and bandmate David to point out the chorus section, otherwise, I would have completely missed it. Thanks to them, and some insane prophet sounds from Dillon afterwards, Lose Money came to life. A testament to the strength of working as a team, this song stands out as one of my all time favorites.”

Earlier this year, Culture Wars released the single “Hunger,” a twist and turn of warbling bass, shimmering synths, and a hypnotic high register hook before dissolving into a cathartic drum and key freak-out punctuated by otherworldly guitar. “I was at a weird place in my life,” Alex Dugan admits. “For me, it was a release of energy. Retrospectively ‘Hunger’ could be about distancing yourself from emotion in a relationship where you’ve had to disassociate due to dysfunction.”

Inspired by seeing New Order live in Houston, the band recorded a series of demos in 2016. Those demos eventually morphed into Culture Wars‘ self-titled 2017 debut EP. The lead single “Lies” eclipsed 2.2 million Spotify streams followed by “Bones” peaking at #43 on Alternative radio. In 2019, they retreated to the famed Sonic Ranch Recording Studio in Tornillo, TX, which sits on a massive pecan farm thirty minutes outside of El Paso directly on the Mexican border. Over the course of “drunk summer camp, as Alex describes it, they brought teche to life with producer Caleb Contreras. The isolation, yet intimacy of the locale seeped into the push-and-pull of the music. They recruited ten-time GRAMMY Award winner Manny Marroquin [Kanye West, Imagine Dragons] for mixing and put the finishing touches on the EP just as the Global Pandemic set in. Throughout the next year, they teased out teche.  “Faith,” which Alex describes as “a rock song, an electronic song, and country song,hinted at the scope of the project. Meanwhile, “Leave Me Alone” quickly approached 1 million Spotify streams as it generated a flurry of activity on TikTok fueled by videos from mega-influencers such as Bella Poarch, Nessa Barrett, and Sienna Mae. Not to mention, it landed on the GRAMMY Award-nominated Bill & Ted Face The Music Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and ascended into the Top 30 at Alternative Radio.

K.D.A.P. – Influences

You may know Kevin Drew as the leader of Toronto indie-rock ensemble Broken Social Scene but let’s imagine that he wasn’t. Instead, let’s imagine that the young man who spent his early 20s obsessing over Brian Eno’s ambient works, Morricone soundtracks, Chicago post-rock and the early Warp Records catalogue never left the basement, never met his future BSS partner Brendan Canning in 1999 and never discovered a wider community of musicians. Now take that kid, time-travel him to 2021, hand him a smartphone with a DIY beat-making app, and drop him in a forest somewhere in the south of England. The result would sound something like Influences.

The album is different from his previous works in that it’s more of an abstract electronic music album. Kevin shared the video for the album’s opening track, “The Slinfold Loop”. On the track he says: “We live in a society that’s based on selling yourself back to yourself. It’s created an underground battle to constantly be searching for ‘true identity’. We wanted to create a video presentation that promotes exploring over searching and brings the mystical slide-show of never-ending opinion to the forefront of this battle. We used available footage from the World Wide Web from other artists and cut together a blender of images to tell a love story about continuing to move forward amongst the never ending information of how one is supposed to live.”

Yes, like many records you’ll hear this year, Influences was a product of the pandemic. But it doesn’t so much capture the sound of lockdown as it does liberation, music unbound from the laws of traditional song structure and the crowd-pleasing pressures of fronting a popular rock band. The truth is, Kevin had been itching to make a record like this well before the world stopped turning in March 2020. After his two decades of playing with Broken Social Scene left him with a chronic back injury and a dearth of fresh songwriting inspiration, he longed for both a physical and aesthetic retreat, and to reconnect with the therapeutic powers of instrumental music that he first experienced as a teenager. The pandemic simply provided him with the time and space to finally make it happen, as he spent the summer of 2020 riding out COVID’s first wave in the London area. 

But while the aptly-named Influences marks a return to the early inspirations that first prompted Kevin to make music some 25 years ago, it expresses those old impulses through an entirely new language, and exercises them in a completely different environment. This isn’t a basement record; it’s an outdoor record, written in real time during long walks through the woods of Slinford and along the canals of Islington on the smartphone production software Endlesss. For Kevin, this app wasn’t some mere time-killing toy, but a tool that completely transformed his approach to making music, its simple interface presenting him with infinite new possibilities and reigniting a childlike sense of experimentation. Instead of jamming with musicians, he was now interacting with his natural environment, intuitively switching up his beats and arrangements in response to changes in environmental stimuli, be it the discovery of a new vista or a cyclist whipping by and nearly killing him. The easy-flowing, artistically freeing nature of the music’s creation is reflected in the alias Kevin eventually adopted for the project KDAP, a.k.a., Kevin Drew a Picture and by the time he returned to Toronto following his UK retreat, he had accumulated nearly 45 song sketches. 

Influences is positively pulsating with life, a kaleidoscopic constellation of strobe-lit electronics, rippling rhythms, and gleaming digital melodies that tap into a very 2021 feeling of existence.

The Avalances – Since I Left You Deluxe Edition

The 20th-anniversary edition of The Avalanches‘ groundbreaking debut album, Since I Left You, has been released via Astralwerks. Originally released in Australia in 2000 and in the U.S./U.K. in 2001, Since I Left You was named one of the year’s best albums by critics around the world and later placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s Greatest EDM Albums of All Time. Since I Left You 20th-Anniversary Deluxe Edition is available in vinyl, CD, and digital formats HERE.

In the hours leading up to the release of the deluxe edition, The Avalanches shared the visualizer for “Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life” (MF DOOM Remix), one of the remarkable remixes exclusive to the deluxe edition. A previously unheard vocal contribution on the track serves as a bittersweet homage from the late, enigmatic master of the hip-hop underground, who passed away last October. Daniel Dumilethe, who performed as MF DOOM, was praised by The New York Times for forging “a style that was intricate and imaginative, calling on both esoteric and lowbrow references as well as cartoonish imagery in lyrics that could be poignantly emotional.” Born in London and raised on Long Island, Dumilethe released six albums plus full-length collaborations with Madlib and Danger Mouse, among others.

Prince Paul, the de facto fourth member of De La Soul and renowned remixer of Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick and Queen Latifah, revisits the album’s exhilarating title track and acclaimed British producer/DJ Leon Vynehall brings a profound sense of reflection to his remix of “Tonight May Have To Last Me All My Life.” The deluxe edition also includes fresh mixes from Mario Caldato Jr., who produced the Beastie Boys’ multi-Platinum classics Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication and Hello Nasty.

No album ever made history quite like The Avalanches‘ debut. A meticulous labor of love sifted from the second-hand record bins of Melbourne, Since I Left You was an unprecedented act of musical invention filtered through the loving hands of young music-obsessed DJs and musicians to blossom into the ultimate feelgood world party soundtrack. The boundary-pushing orchestration of samples, some say as many as 3,500 uniquely sourced and spliced sound fragments, was unanimously acclaimed as an act of technical genius. But the glowing heart of the project, a story of oneness through time, space, and infinite diversity, was the magic spell that made the world melt in elation.

Since I Left You’s achievement was to break the easy but facile equation of depth with darkness, intensity with misery: on this record, it is happiness that is the complicated and mysterious state.”

The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches’ sophomore album, Wildflower, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016. Their third album,  We Will Always Love You, was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone and won the prestigious 2020 Australian Music Prize.

Announced as the inaugural Luminary Artists in Residence, The Avalanches will be performing Since I Left You with Australia’s Adelaide Symphony Orchestra on July 30 as part of “Illuminate Adelaide”: a major new event celebrating innovation, music, art, and light.

Alan Walker – The Aviation Movie

Billboard Music Awards nominee and diamond selling DJ/producer Alan Walker announces the release of his in-concert film The Aviation Movie on YouTube. The unique five part series, which took almost two years to create, combines footage from the Oslo Spektrum stop on Walker’s Aviation Tour and a narrative arc from the Walker cinematic universe. 

Woven in between the tracks and concert footage is a dynamic storyline from the World of Walker: after an apocalyptic event, a young woman, armed only with the AW logo, is on a journey to save the world. Along the way, she learns new skills and ultimately rebuilds society with the help of the like-minded Walker community. The film also features appearances by Walker’s collaborators Steve Aoki, Au/Ra, Isak, Iselin Solheim, Juliander, Julie Bergan, Omar Noir, Sophia Somajo, Tomine Harket, and Torine.

Walker also released The Aviation Game, an arcade-style iOS & Android mobile game developed by award winning indie studio Hello There Games. The game’s action, steering a drone through a challenging obstacle course, is directly derived from the plot of The Aviation Movie

Alan Walker explains: “Live music has obviously been on hold throughout the pandemic, and I know that I’m not the only one who misses the magic of concerts. My hope for fans who watch The Aviation Movie is for them to experience that special feeling once again and to look forward to the day when we can connect in person.”
