“Wonderfully cathartic—as refreshing as a dip in a cold stream.”Pitchfork (Best New Track)

Michael Mayer and Joe Goddard’s underground hit “For You” has received not one but two remixes courtesy of  DJ Koze, a man whose re-imaginings are deservedly revered. Koze’s first offering is a club mix composed of layered, floor-raising chords while ruffling up the original vocals gradually and elegantly. The second is an Mbira remix, filled with African-inspired percussive inklings and sprinkled with effortless melodic flourishes.

The full EP (including instrumentals) is available now on 12″ and digitally.

With his first album for !K7 out in a week, producer / vocalist / performer Portable has put his track “This Frozen Lake” into the capable hands of Shackleton for a new mix.

House Legend Larry Heard Remixes DâM-Funk

Published on Wednesday, August 3rd 2016 5:13 pm

As the architect of the “Modern Funk” sound, DâM-FunK has always given respect to funk’s originators: genius musicians who contributed to lineage of funk in all its forms. It’s only fitting then that one of these influential figures, Chicago house legend Larry Heard, has stepped up to remix DâM’s DJ-Kicks exclusive track “Believer.”

Utilizing his “Mr. Fingers” alias, Heard teases and stretches the tight funk grooves to around the ten minute mark, lathering the beat in codeine smeared keys and shimmering pads in a heady trip through the L.A Hills and into coastal dance inter-zones.

A single featuring “Fingers Deep-Funk Remix” and backed with the DâM-Funk / Nite Jewel collaboration “Can U Read Me” is available now. A 12″ single is out Friday 5th August.

Matthew Herbert and FOLD Remix Audion

Published on Thursday, July 21st 2016 3:57 pm

Audion’s album Alpha is a most welcome return from Matthew Dear’s techno alter ego following a decade-long album absence. Hailed as an much-needed injection of fun and authenticity into the genre’s crowded landscape, the album has been steadily blowing up dance floors and headphones since its release in June.

This week, two new remixes have surfaced from an upcoming double-sided single for album tracks “Gut Man Cometh” and “Destroyer.” First up, electronic music legend and longtime !K7 collaborator Matthew Herbert delivers a devastating deconstruction of “Gut Man Cometh,” stripping the track down to its component elements and building it back up again. Next up is “Lean Tape Version” from Aus affiliate FOLD, layering jazzy synth chords on top of the propulsive percussion to give the track some added warmth.

Both remixes are streaming below. The Gut Man Cometh / Destroyer EP is out 22nd July on Beatport. Audion’s Alpha album is available now.
