Here’s a great set for those winter nights by Paus Akid (Starpause). A number of fantastic tracks dropped in this mix including music by Robot Koch, Foolk, and I Cactus. And what ever happened to Khonner anyway? ‘For your broken heart‘ is one of my favorite EPs of all time.

Brendan Angelides is a San Francisco based electronic music producer who records and performs live as Eskmo. In the past five years he’s released over a dozen singles and EPs while touring throughout North America and Europe. Angelides also runs the Ancestor label, which issued his “Hypercolor” and “Angus Dei” singles in 2009 to positive reviews from numerous magazines, blogs and tastemakers.
In the past two years his multi-genre compositions have been featured on influential labels like Warp Records and Planet Mu. He’s also remixed works by diverse artists such as Bibio, Spor, STS9, and Bar9, to name a few. While Angelides’ tracks encompass a wide range of electronic styles, he avoids classifications. Bleep.com described his tracks as “Masterfully produced… sophisticated, post-Dilla hip-hop funk”. His latest single “Let Them Sing” on Planet Mu was met with equal praise and described by sites like Boomkat as “[Putting] Eskmo on his own electronic plateau.”
Fresh from the oven:
This episode is 44 minutes and 25 seconds of 10th-generation genre-re-wiring, exploring bass music through an open-minded lens, regardless of tempo, or even beat-structure… this sound clash aims straight for your body, with the intent to melt you down into a fidgeting, wobbling mess of enthusiasm and delight. In addition to some of my favorite old records and samples, this mix features several brand new Bassnectar tracks, heaps of exclusive edits, re-edits, and re-re-re-edits. Lot’s of re. Lot’s of mix. Lot’s of edits. We tore our favorite drum & bass to shreds, injected hip hop with some pogo-stick bass, amped up the tempo of dubstep, freaked out the gypsies, gave a nod to the dreamy 80’s and ended up similar to where we started off: omni-tempo maximalism strikes again.
Enjoy the ride.

UPDATE 03/19/2012: Check out the latest version of the video and template here.
An open-source template for DJing with Ableton Live 8, what more could you ask for? How about a tutorial on the ins and outs of the setup? Although you can map these controls to any midi controller, it will work best with the APC40 and the soon to be released APC20.

Moldover has arguable coined the term ‘controllerism‘ and has made some wacky devices over the years. Now the Mojo, Moldover’s first commercially available controller will most likely be previewing at Wham Bam Thank You NAMM. The Mojo looks like a beast of a machine with super sturdy buttons, knobs, and touch activated strips. This is a controller you can go absolutely berserk on without worrying about scratching, breaking, or denting it. The downside? It comes with a hefty price tag of $1800. There’s been some serious discussion online about the price. And although I think the cost is somewhat justified in regards to the build quality and low production run of the Mojo, you still have to wonder how many can shell out that kind of dough for what is essentially only a midi controller. Especially when the same money can get you a much more versatile albeit less tactile JazzMutant Lemur. Nevertheless, the lucky twenty customers receiving their Mojo in March will certainly be having a lot of fun jamming on that thing. And getting laid.

What a show we’ve got lined up for you! Foolk is coming all the way from Bratislava to promote his Lush Hour EP and play a live wonky dance set in Prague. DJ Lixx will be traveling and performing along his side. Foolk, armed with his trusty monome and his sidekick DJ Lixx, with his artful scratches, will put together a glorious cacophony at the Brick Bar. That’s not to say that DJ Lixx can’t hold his own. Recognized as the best Slovak Drum&Bass DJ of 2008, DJ Lixx will also be mixing up styles ranging from the experimental to the minimal.
We got such a great response from tvprodukt‘s performance a few months ago that it was a given we’d see him back at Glitch.CZ. And we can’t forget Claviq, who has tendency to rip up the stage beyond recognition. And to tie the night together we’ll have an original visual display by FiveToTwelve!
Don’t Miss Out! It’s 2010!
