BLONDE – Foolish (Joe Goddard Remix)

We gave props to Blonde’s ‘Foolish’ a couple of weeks back and now, thanks to Annie Mac’s Free Music Monday, we have the icing on that particular cake:

Joe Goddard’s taken time out from his 2 Bears residency at XOYO to stretch and mould this one. He’s retained the funky house groove from the original but given it some dancing shoes and sent it out clubbing with instructions not to come back until the next morning.

Essentially, it’s good and it’s free. Say no more.

Mixmag In Session: Blonde

Anyone need to blow the cobwebs this morning? We highly suggest you wrap your ears around this little mix Blonde have done for Mixmag, the tracklisting’s a fun-filled line-up including Detroit Swindle, MK’s tasty remix of Celine Dion and an excellent inclusion of Beesmunt Soundsystem’s summer hit ‘How I Wish’ – these boys clearly know their way around a party tune.

It’s no surprise then that one half of this Bristol/Leeds duo comprises one of the co-founders of the ever-popular tastemakers Eton Messy, and with a recent signing to Parlophone they’re clearly going places.

Their upcoming single, ‘Foolish’, premiered on Eton Messy of course, is released today. Check it below and head over to Mixmag to get that mix for good.

Blonde – It’s You (The Golden Boy Remix)

Dominic Hammonds aka The Golden Boy has very kindly unleashed yet another free download for your listening pleasure.

He’s taken Blonde’s summer jam ‘It’s You’ and given it a jackin’ makeover. Testament to the original’s class vocal (another free download), this is a catchy number and whets the appetite for more material from the duo from Bristol, London and Leeds, according to their soundcloud. One half being from the Eton Messy lot and one half from Thieves, we’re keen to hear more.

The Golden Boy’s been getting some good shows in throughout the UK of late, with Nottingham’s Stealth and Ministry Of Sound to come. Be sure to check the diary if you’re after a night out.

Blondes – Wine

Blondes are Sam Haar and Zach Steinman. They met at Ohio’s Oberlin College, where they studied electroacoustic composition and studio art respectively – before moving to Berlin and then settling in Brooklyn.

Aaanyway, life envy aside, their eponymous upcoming release is something to look forward to. ‘Wine’, HD’s favourite so far, is a mellow meander through the easier end of techno, tapping into the rich vein of low-key house that’s popular right now. Even moreannoyingly impressively, the two unreleased tracks were recorded in single takes and heavily improvised. The album is a double CD, coming with a whole host of remixes, including one by Traxx that we’re particularly excited about.

It’s out on February 7th on RVNG Intl and you can check them out in the flesh at the launch party at the Shacklewell Arms on the 16th. We’ll be there, assuming we can suppress our jealousy.

NVOY – All Night

Fresh from a stint playing the We Love series in Ibiza, London duo NVOY are back on home turf with their brand new single ‘All Night’, released on Black Butter Records. And guess what? They’re back just in time to get their heads together for the next Human Drizzle Presents at Basing House on 25th September.

With stabbing synths and an infectious bassline, ‘All Night’ sees the Black Butter duo put their own spin on classic four-to-the-floor house. It’s a catchy number, and having already won the hearts of bloggers and YouTube channels with their previous work, they look destined to follow in the footsteps of similar future house producers such as Blonde and label mates Gorgon City.

We’re delighted to have them playing for us on Friday 25th September, and together with HD fave Ben Gomori, our resident Hot Karl AND a very special guest, it’s set to be a night to remember. Tickets are currently a steal at just £6 over on RA.

See you down the front?



NVOY – Girl

Swirling synths, catchy vocals and fidgety beats are the order of the day from London-based NVOY.

First up, the Black Butter Records-affiliated duo unleashed an exclusive track called ‘Girl’ on Annie Mac’s Free Music Monday service. That one’s free to download. And secondly as they quite rightly put it, their ‘remix of Blonde’s latest single is ready to smash up a club near you’:

Head over to their SoundCloud to keep in the loop. One of their first offerings, ‘You Are’, is being served up as the opener for Black Butter’s ‘Spread Love Volume 5′, a compilation featuring a carefully chosen selection of breakthrough artists. Check out the tune below and cop the release here.

Four Tet – Moma

If your New Year’s Resolution was to do more for charity, or even if it wasn’t, here’s an easy way to help out a worthy cause and acquire some great new music.

Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead has compiled a 14-song compilation album, all proceeds of which will go toward the Japan Society Earthquake Relief Fund and Architecture for Humanity. It’s being released digitally on January 10th on the band’s new label, Asa Wa Kuru (‘Morning Will Come’ in Japanese).

Human Drizzle’s favourite submission, by trusted old hand Four Tet, is a wandering, slightly dazed piece of electronica prone to the occasional head-nod thanks to Kieran Hebdan’s stuttering beats. Perfect January uplift in our opinion.

Other tracks to watch out for are those by Pantha du Prince, Deerhunter, Karin Andersson of the Knife/Fever Ray, and Interpol. We’d have written about Karin Andersson’s composition but it’s offbeat to the point of hypnotic and may send readers to sleep al desko. And we wouldn’t want to be responsible for that.
