Club Bizarre – Bogota (Kiwi Remix)

Things couldn’t go much better for Kiwi at the mo.

He’s had a string of excellent releases on Sneaky, Deep Shit and Days Of Being Wild, he’s remixed Klaxons, Tronik Youth and Wankelmut and he’s recently signed to Duke Dumont’s Blasé Boys Club label. Even though South London-based, he basically lives at XOYO and The Nest and he’s got a busy few months ahead touring the country and Europe. Things are going well for the (originally) Shropshire Lad.

Up next on the release front? He’s returning to London-based Days Of Being Wild with this remix of Club Bizarre’s ‘Bogota’. Just as we found with his recent free download ‘The Kudo Kato’, this ain’t an easy listen. But give it some time and this trippy, slow-chugging grower will soon be worming it’s way right into that old ear of yours. As ever, interesting stuff:

For the longer listen, head over to HarderBloggerFaster. He’s made a disco-heavy mixtape for the first in their ‘Blogcast’ series.

Human Drizzle Mix – James Sison EXCLUSIVE

Big day guys, big day.

1. It’s the eve of a bumper bank holiday weekender.

2. It’s ¼ of HD’s birthday.

3. It’s 22 days until a sweet party that, like, everyone’s going to.

Aaaaaaaand…

4. To celebrate the above, we have an EXCLUSIVE mix from James Sison, who’ll be spinning some tunes on the night:

James is co-founder of the hotly-tipped London and Leeds-based label Bade Records and is resident at Tessellate. He’s also your audio guide for today’s minimal and melodic house journey… It’s an hour of top selections, perfect to ease you into the four-dayer, and we’re hyped to have him playing on the 9th May. Tickets available here:

Big day.

High Heels Breaker – Come Easy feat Sarah Palin (David August Remix)

As is his wont, today David August caught our attention by uploading a new track to his Soundcloud page. A remix of ‘Come Easy’ by Switzerland’s High Heels Breaker, it’s a sparse little number which evokes (to our ears) the great Nicolas Jaar. It’s an atmospheric listen, with nervy synths and twitchy percussion – and it’s an impressive change of pace from the original. It’s also apparently a snippet of the full remix, but David has never been one for concision: it’s 04:34. Finally, it features Sarah Palin on vocals. That is Sarah Palin, the Zurich-based vocalist and songwriter – not the other one (although we’d be intrigued to see that collaboration next).

Luca Vasta – Black Tears White Lies (Roosevelt Remix)

The sun’s shining, who you gonna call…

Roosevelt’s back with yet another excellent remix. He’s taken Berlin’s Luca Vasta’s ‘Black Tears White Lies’ and soaked it in summer vibes, as per. If you close your eyes, you can practically smell the coconut oil from here.

He’s also lined up all of his ace remixes on one Soundcloud set for your listening pleasure. It’d be rude not to:

Head over here for a few of his originals too.

Three Laws – Convalescence EP

Box-fresh London duo Three Laws offer up a couple of evocative treats ahead of their debut EP ‘Convalescence’ dropping on 31st May.

Both tracks have a gothic feel, tailor-made for haunted castles and billowing curtains. Vocalist Louise Gold hits the high notes à la Alpines’ Catherine Pockson and, whilst occasionally slightly overproduced for our four-to-the-floor tastes, there’s bags of potential here. Watch this space.

Ten Walls – Nochnoy Dozor

This is quite something. Ten Walls’ new ‘Walking With Elephants’ EP is finally out and today we’re treated to the B-side from said release, ‘Nochnoy Dozor’. He’s carving out quite the barbaric sound. This new one plays host to a terrifying entrance and contains a beast of a beat. It don’t mess around.

Get a copy of the EP here, and have a recap of the title track whilst you’re at it:

Human Drizzle: The Playlist, April 2014

It may not have escaped some of you that it is now April and, as such, we owe you a playlist. Here it is. We’d particularly recommend the contributions from Breach, Beesmunt Soundsystem and Zimmer, but it’s intended for exploration – so please do so. And while you’re at it, can you think of five good reasons not to book your tickets for Human Drizzle Presents on 09.05.14? If so, please share them. If not, you know what to do.

Sharam – Tripi

We chastise ourselves at HD towers when we bring you a new tune that has been ripped from the radio. It’s frowned upon, seen as lazy journalism and is a big no-no in the Human Drizzle brand guidelines (available upon request). You deserve the clearest high definition melodies and that is what we strive to give you. 

Then again, sometimes a track comes along that we get so excited about that we just cannot wait to share it with you. Take, for example, ‘Tripi’ by Iranian progressive and tech-house producer Sharam. When he heard this absolute mauler of a track on the Essential Selection last weekend, we knew we had to bring it to you.
Sharam is one half of Deep Dish, who you may remember for this a few years ago. They are having something of a renaissance in 2014, with toe-tapper ‘Quincy’ getting a lotta love on the blogosphere.
Doesn’t really compare to ‘Tripi’ in our eyes though. It’s a full-on banger, and sure to be a biggie this summer. Perfect warm up material if you’re heading out this weekend (we’ll be at Shapes in Hackney for Cyril Hahn/T.Williams/Javeon/Lone on Saturday.)
So, we’re sorry Pete Tong MBE is chatting all over it, but we think you can get enough of a flavour to make it worth your while. Out on Seth Troxler’s Play It Say It! label at some point soon.

Say Lou Lou – Everything We Touch (Yannis remix)

It’s just a bit of fun, right?

Hey, it’s Friday. We’ve got the party of Spring/Summer sorted. We deserve a bit of frivolous entertainment. So thanks to Yannis Philippakis‎ from Foals for doing us a solid and remixing ‘Everything We Touch’ by Say Lou Lou, as premiered on Zane Lowe last night.

Just enjoy it.

Human Drizzle presents…Dauwd, James Sison, Paradise Forum & Hot Karl @ Canavan’s

HD_april_flyer_digital_FINALWe’re very excited to announce the details of our next party! We’re taking over Canavan’s in Peckham on Friday 9th May and we want you to be there. Tickets are a steal at just five pounds and with the line-up we’ve put together, you’d be a fool to miss out:

http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?583792

We’re thrilled to announce Dauwd as our headliner for the night.

Having had releases on Pictures Music, Ghostly International and most recently Kompakt, the SE15 resident has carved out a formidable reputation for his intricate productions. Since his debut in 2011, he’s continued to experiment with bass, techno and house to critical acclaim. He premiered the soaring title track of his new ‘Kindlinn’ EP on Mixmag just two days ago:

He’s toured both sides of the pond, been twice booked for Boiler Room and is without doubt one of the most exciting UK producers out there right now – we cannot wait for him to headline proceedings. Check out his own Dub version of ‘Silverse’, a highlight from last year’s ‘Heat Division’ EP:

Support is threefold.

First we have James Sison. He’s co-founder of the hotly-tipped London and Leeds-based label Bade Records and is resident at Tessellate. The latter have played host to HD faves Urulu, Eliphino and Citizen in their debut year, and Bade Records are running a stage at the Innervisions-affiliated One Day festival on 21st June. We’re really excited to see what he throws down. Check out Bade Records’ first two free downloads. One from James himself and one from Berlin-based Ben Bohmer:

We’ve also asked Paradise Forum to come play some records, having been wowed by their ace taste in disco, soul and house at the launch of their label and club night, Paradise Loft. We highly recommend checking out this newly-formed collective:

Warming things up will be HD resident Hot Karl.

More on all the aforementioned soon. But for now, block out Friday 9th May and go bag those early birds!
