December 7th, 2016


Wax Tailor’s North American tour launches January 17th in Philadelphia and will wind its way through the U.S. and Canada ending in Asheville on February 18th. By Any Beats Necessary, Wax Tailor’s fifth album, is out now! The title references the Malcolm X phrase “By Any Means Necessary”, which was in turn inspired by Sartre’s play “Dirty Hands”.

By Any Beats Necessary is packed with talent featuring Ghostface Killah from the Wu Tang Clan, R.A. The Rugged Man, A-F-R-O, Token, Tricky, Charlotte Savary, Lee Fields, Sara Genn, Mattic, Raashan Ahmad and newcomer Idil.

Wax Tailor is known for his searing live shows. Anyone who experienced his 2014 shows with an ENTIRE ORCHESTRA will attest to that. On By Any Beats Necessary, Wax Tailor created all the beats using live drums so it’s only natural that he’s bringing the drums for the live show this time around! Wax Tailor always creates a feast for eyes as well as the ears so get ready for brand new video elements too! Wax Tailor hasn’t forgotten to bring friends: Rappers Raashan Ahmad and Mattic as well as the lovely Charlotte Savary.

LISTEN — Coldcut “Only Heaven (Remixes)”

December 6th, 2016


“Following the release of the brilliant Only Heaven EP, their first material in over ten years, Ninja Tune founders Jon More and Matt Black (a.k.a. Coldcut) return with a remix package featuring reworks from scene heavy hitters Matthew Herbert and Special Request, with rising producer Cadenza rounding out the release. As you can expect from the names involved, the remixes are as inventive as the originals themselves; from Herbert’s quirky two-stepper to Special Request’s low-slung weapon and Cadenza’s breakbeat tool, the three mind-bending interpretations sync perfectly with Coldcut’s forward-thinking ethos.” — via XLR8R

LISTEN — Nathan Fake “Now We Know”

December 4th, 2016


“Perhaps best known for his early output on James Holden’s imprint Border Community, Nathan Fake rose to prominence back in 2006 with his debut LP ‘Drowning In A Sea Of Love‘, an album that has since become a timeless staple in the realms of leftfield electronica and post-KLF trancey ambient. Ahead of the release of his forthcoming LP and just in time for Christmas, the Norwich-based producer will release his first record of the year via Ninja Tune on 2nd December 2016. On ‘DEGREELESSNESS‘, Nathan delivers a solid two-track 12″ featuring a collaboration with NYC-based resident Prurient aka Vatican Shadow (founder of Hospital Productions) and an original track of his own hand, which Nathan explains to be “an attempt at a more traditional house track, built around a sample, Casio keyboard drums and FM synth, crushed onto cassette tape. It was written and recorded in a single afternoon in London, circa 2010.”” — via Inverted Audio

The two rappers start out talking about early influences (Prince’s “Beautiful Ones” and Ice-T’s “6 In The Morning”) and end up expressing their love and respect for Southern Rock, The Clash, Outlaw Country and early hip hop and rap.” — via KUTX
