Caribou – Can’t Do Without You (Tale Of Us & Mano Le Tough Remix)

Finally. A legitimate and full-length version as uploaded by Berlin-based duo, Tale Of Us. The need for scouring through festival footage on YouTube of this one being played throughout the summer is no longer.

Caribou‘s 2014 return single has proven to be one of the tunes of the year, and this remix by heavyweights Tale Of Us and Mano Le Tough is going to extend its airtime, giving the already-epic song more depth and more of a dancefloor feel. Pure class:

Moodroom Presents Tales From Above

Heads up Londoners. This Friday Moodroom Collective return to their newly-discovered loft space for round 2 of their ‘Tales From Above’ party series.

moodroom-loft

Collaborating with Chapter 24 Records, music will be provided by said label bosses VVerses and the Moodroom-affiliated Harbinger Kurt, amongst others.

The hush-hush Zone 2 TBA venue sounds quirky and intimate with immediate comparisons to Body Hammer’s Lift venue. It’s set to be an cosy affair, and after the inaugural event’s sell-out in December, we’d recommend grabbing a ticket while you can.

Check out Harbinger Kurt’s recent Bloop radio show for a flavour:

Wolf Music:
If you’re unaware, Wolf Music are a duo consisting of Matt and Stu. They’ve been running the highly-reputable eponymous label since 2009, and they’ve been playing records for a lot longer. Deeply rooted in house, disco and soul, they’ve forged an identity for themselves as one of the hottest labels to keep your eye on, championing fresh talent such as Medlar, PBR Streetgang, Casino Times and Bicep to name a few. Their extensive record collection is rivalled by few and attracts bookings all across Europe. 

This summer’s seen them play at Gottwood and Festival No. 6. They’ve played for Krankbrother, at Dance Tunnel and they recently made an appearance at XOYO as part of Bicep’s residency. Check out a few of our favourites from the label’s canon below, and stay tuned for more on the duo very shortly.

We can’t wait to see what they bring to the party this Friday night. Joining Black Butter Records’ new signing NVOY, HD fave Ben Gomori and our very own Hot Karl, you’d be a fool to miss out on this one.

Tickets are here. Come join the fun.

Late Night Tales – Jon Hopkins

Hands up if this week’s all getting a bit much? Need a little time out? Look no further than Jon Hopkins’ forthcoming Late Night Tales‘ compilation, it’s looking to be pretty special and could be the perfect respite for your weary selves.

If you’re unaware of LNT’s work, they invite artists to delve into their record collection to create the ultimate late night selections. With previous guests such as Four Tet, The Cinematic Orchestra and Belle & Sebastien, the collective is the absolute don for atmospheric, chill-out, whatever genre you want to call it. It’s relaxing, and for that little moment in time you can escape your busy lives, let go and forget about all your worries.

So when we heard Jon Hopkins had been recruited for the next edition we were pretty excited. Judging by the promo, he’s put a lot of time and effort into it, he ‘chose tracks not just because they have been important to me but because of how they sit together, putting as much thought into the transitions and overall narrative as I did into the track choices’.

As with tradition on all these compilations, Hopkins has done an exclusive cover version, which will feature poet Rick Holland’s spoken word on the full release. The instrumental is of Yeasayer’s ‘I Remember’ and it’s quite something. Fragile doesn’t even cover it. The rest of the line-up includes choice selections from Nils Frahm, Sigur Ros’ Jonsi and this hypnotic number from Darkstar:

It’s not all ambience, though. Hopkins has included more beat-heavy works from Holy Other and Gold Panda, and he delves into the indie with a School Of Seven Bells track. Also on there is the totally irresistible ‘Lady Divine’ by Alela Diane:

All-in-all we know this is a compilation that you need in your life. It’s currently on pre-order with both digital and vinyl releases out at the end of Feb, beginning of March. If you needed more persuading, he’s even squeezed in Four Tet’s ‘Gillie Amma, I Love You’. It’s moving:

Marcus Worgull & Peter Pardeike – Lenoix

You are all probably gearing up for your Christmas hols by now. In the process, you’ll no doubt be shelving your self-respect as you sit in your office, bedroom or on the tube listening to Cliff Richard Christmas songs, telling yourself this is what this time of year is all about.

Please.

We celebrate Crimbo a little differently here at HD. Whilst we’re partial to a bit of Wham! at this time of year – George Michael is the most talented male vocalist of the late 20th Century in our eyes – we still know that there are tunes to be found, and they won’t necessarily be the sort that you can stick on between Mariah and Shakin’ Stevens whilst you try and photocopy your arse at the office bash, if you know what we mean.

Step forward Marcus Worgull and Peter Pardeike. Innversions have had an incredible year. Brilliant live performances have propelled label-head Steffan Berkhahn aka Dixon to number one spot on the Resident Advisor top DJs countdown, a gong we can find no error with, and he was ably supported by long-time collaborators Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann of Âme. On top of this there was the towering success of Agoria‘s ‘Scala’, a gorgeous, driving piece of piano house, fitting perfectly into the mould of intensely beautiful tracks that have become the MO of Innervisions releases.

There was also Dixon‘s shudderingly epic Essential Mix which really has to be carefully studied if you haven’t already.

One of the tracks that Steffan featured in his mix back in September was ‘Lenoix’ by Marcus and Peter, although at that time no one outside of the label knew what the track was, even though it stood out as a highlight amongst many great moments over the two hours. It’s a quietly monstrous banger, building stealthily to a brilliant crescendo.

The good news is that it’s already out and you can grab it from all good retailers. The bad news is your gran might not like it when you insist on playing it whilst waiting for Death Comes to Pemberely to start on the Beeb this Xmas. She should know better.

Mighty Mouse – If I & In Front Of Friends

Recent Human Drizzle Presents alumnus Mighty Mouse has been a busy boy recently. Today two pieces emerged from the disco wizard: the first a remix of Villa‘s ‘If I’ and the second an original collaboration with Monarchy entitled ‘In Front of Friends’.

The original version of ‘If I’ by Belgian duo Villa is a moody piece of guitar-led, slow-paced disco. Mighty Mouse has sped things up and given the track a little more bounce, and the results are very pleasing indeed. It’s a head-nodder, and that’s that.

The other track to emerge from MM today is ‘In Front of Friends’. Full of vocal harmonies and jaunty brass, ‘In Front of Friends’ is the tale of a man embarrassed by a public declaration of love, and it’s a jaunty pop record that may be just the distraction you need as winter closes in.

Benedict Jackson – Not Your House/Audax

We know little about Real Nice Recordings save the fact they’re a newly formed, London-based label. The two Real Nice DJs have been spinning records and holding some fairly sizeable parties both in Bristol and West London for a while now, so a foray into releasing records seems like the next logical step.

Their debut release is from fellow Londoner Benedict Jackson and it’s a party starter. The two originals breathe deep and soulful house and both the Real Nice DJs and Cubiq step up on the remixing front, grab the EP here. Great to see such fresh talent on a similarly fresh label, promising stuff.

Rustie – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

Something a little longer for you to plug into this fine Monday. Radio 1’s Essential Mix has been undergoing somewhat of a renaissance over the past couple of years, fuelled by a new generation of young producers and DJs pushing the Saturday night/Sunday morning institution past, in the most respectful way possible, the stalwarts of old.

The last two sum up why it is now compulsory listening for electronic music fans. The multi-talented and oft-hyped Nicolas Jaar has crafted a musical journey the weekend just gone, twisting together tunes from *NSYNC right through to Bill Calahan. This followed a joyous two hours from HD favourite Rustie. We’ve posted the Rustie one above as it’s right on the money with what we’re listening to right now, bringing the dulcet tones of Drake together with labelmate Hud Mo’s basslines and beats. It’ll pick you up.

Let us know if you think we plumped for the right one on twitter @humandrizzle. Either way, you get to hear Pete Tong doing his thing. The man LOVES dance music.

Moodroom Presents: Peter Pardeike (Innervisions)

Alright folks. This Saturday 3rd October, the Courtyard Theatre is the place to be. Preferably between the hours of 5pm and midnight.

Moodroom

Wherefore, we hear you ask. Well. Our pals who make up the Moodroom Collective are finally having their first London launch party having run parties all the way oop narth for the last five years.

This excellent mix from one of the ‘MC’-heads is a good taster of what to expect from the collective – with a tracklisting featuring the likes of Frankey & Sandrino, Edu Imbernon and Tale Of Us we were drawn in immediately:

This Saturday they’re taking over the intimate, Grade II-listed theatre space over on Hoxton square and filling it with a Funktion One soundsytem, a shed load of intimate lights and a killer booking in Peter Pardeike of Innervisions fame.

He’s a star on the rise and you’ll rarely be able to catch him again in such surroundings. A particular favourite of ours was his work with Marcus Worgull on the Lenoix EP:

Tickets for this unique event can be bought on RA here. If you wanna tell your pals, have a look at the event on Facebook here too. The lads have teamed up with Avant Garde’s night at Oval Space featuring Weval and Trentemoller. That one should be just starting as the Moodroom Collective finish up shop. Details on the deal on tickets for that on the RA site too.

Aaand finally, check out Peter Pardeike’s recent Muting The Noise podcast to give you an idea of the kind sets he throws down:
