Claude Speeed – Tiger Woods & LuckyMe podcast

LuckyMe have put together a playlist for your Friday!

Packed with all you need to get you through to the weekend, it’s a sonic journey. All served with a gentle Glaswegian lilt.

The first tune out the traps is ‘Tiger Woods’ by RBMA graduate and poly-musician Claude Speeed. Arriving at his upcoming ‘My Skeleton’ EP via American Men (a math rock band) and a couple of drone mixes, he’s settled on an eccentric, percussive sound that draws you in.

He’s declared composer Steve Reich an influence and you can certainly hear the atypical rhythms coming through. If this last sentence feels supplementary, it’s because it’s a vehicle to brag that we have tickets to see the man himself at the Proms later this year. So there.

Beacons Festival 2013


Greetings. From Beacons.

That’s what we’ll be saying August 16th-18th when HD decamps to the Funkirk Estate (come on…) in glamorous Skipton for Beacons Festival 2013. As ever, there are too many people we’re excited to see. RBMA, Resident Advisor and Noisey are all hosting stages and here are some things from some people that are playing:

Exciting huh?

The take-home message from all of this is COME ALONG. We’ll bring an iPod dock, play some tunes and call it a Human Drizzle stage. Deal?

Pazes – Sleeping Dolls EP

Would you believe it, another RBMA graduate making waves.

Pazes, otherwise known as Lucas Febraro, has put together a gem of an EP. ‘Sleeping Dolls’ is a spaced-out, slightly disconcerting selection of tracks, humanised by Biblo’s vocals.

You know it’s good because Kompakt-affiliated label Time No Place are putting out. A credible stamp of approval, if ever there was one.

Claude Speeed – Inside (Sonar 2013)

Quick post, long tune.

We’re always on the look-out for LuckyMe output, and that stretched as far as what could ungenerously be called the interval music at Red Bull Music Academy’s SonarDome stage (at Sonar Festival, duh) last week. Claude Speeed (who’s also a RBMA graduate) has put together 17 minutes of theatrical electronica. A symphony for festival down-time:

It’s almost, ALMOST, like we were there.

Oneman, xxxy & Bondax mixes

Mixes, mixes, everywhere. Couple of longer ones here to keep you trucking this Friday.

First up is the one man you’d most want spinning the tunes at your house party, Oneman. His two hour mix for the Diplo & Friends show on Radio 1 and 1xtra is 50 songs worth of goodness, seamlessly weaving club house, R&B, grime and more as only he can do.  The (lengthy) tracklist can be found here.

Second up and repping Manchester is producer and selector xxxy. Taken from his recent set for Red Bull Music Academy at SonarSound in Tokyo last month, imagine it as the slightly reserved but intense cousin of the mix above. Listen here.

Finally, it’d be remiss if we didn’t also point you in the direction of an unashamedly fun new mix from Bondax for XLR8R. In advance of their first LP later this year, remind yourself why everyone bloody loves these two and download the mix here. If you needed more convincing, it includes this bundle of fun:

Those should keep you going.

Hier Presents: FunkinEven at The Bussey Building

If anyone’s in London town this weekend looking for a jaunt, we suggest you head south of the river to hop on board Hier Collective’s inaugural after hours party. They’ve taken over a floor at the Bussey Building in Peckham to serve up what proves to be a tasty evening, with rising star FunkinEven headlining proceedings.

Covering a range of styles within his music, FunkinEven’s set should be fairly eclectic. If you didn’t catch the earworm that was ‘Phone Line’, the track he released with the excellent accompanying vocals from Fatima, have a gander at the vid below. We’ve also posted his set at Dimensions Festival this Summer. The Red Bull Music Academy Radio aptly tags it as ‘vintage house, quirky jack trax, and playful boogie jams.’ Skip the intro chat which lasts until four minutes and eleven seconds (to be precise) and you’re in for a taster of the kind of party vibes he puts into his shows.

Support throughout the evening will come from various DJs including the Trouble Vision and Oonst residents Oli D.A.B & Robin. If you have a listen to their recent NTS Radio Show here or check out their August Mix below you should get a feel for what’s in store.

Tickets are a reasonably priced tenner and you can get them here on Resident Advisor. It’ll be money well spent, wethinks.

As a brief aside, here’s the video for FunkinEven’s recent release which is out on his own Apron Records. The tune’s called ‘Dracula’. Enough said really:
