‘Isolette’ EP Coming Soon

I’m excited to announce that I’ll soon be releasing a new EP, called Isolette, through the Netherlands-based Shipwrec imprint. Due on the 13th of January 2015, it will arrive on 12″ vinyl plus download, featuring six tracks (including a remix by Roel Funcken), plus a bonus download track. All vinyl purchases will come with a download code.

The artwork was expertly designed by nkurence, and features some extra special ink finishes for the vinyl sleeve. It’s been a while since I’ve had my music pressed on vinyl, so I can’t wait to get my hands on these.

Coming Soon: Touched 2 Compilation

It’s difficult to believe that almost a year has passed since the first ‘Touched‘ album, but the next instalment of this charity compilation is due to arrive on the 28th November. Like the first, all proceeds will go to the Macmillan Cancer Support charity, which aims to provide cancer sufferers with care, support and assistance during and following treatment. Also like the first, a staggering number of artists are involved, though this time the number of participants is more than doubled: there are currently over 250 tracks confirmed for the release, including contributions from personal faves such as Autechre, Brothomstates, Datassette, Plaid, Mr. Projectile and Hecq, to name but a few. I’ll have a new track in there too. It’s sure to be an immense collection — there’s a full list of the artists involved on the Touched Facebook page.

Volume 1: Memory Waves (Tipping Hand)

The mysterious folk behind LA’s Tipping Hand Recordings recently celebrated their first birthday by assembling this excellent free compilation. Memory Waves brings together a selection of previously released tracks, including contributions from Kettel, Yimino, Borealis, Jacob 2-2, and many others, all remastered for the occasion.

From the press release:

Memory Waves features a selection of some of the world’s most diverse electronic producers from Germany, England, Canada, Netherlands, North America and the UK. Memory Waves sheds new light on songs previously released by remastering and reassembling each track into a fluid, storylike album.

Ochre Mix for Words On Tracks

I recently put this mix together for Words On Tracks, featuring some of my musical influences, acknowledging key moments of my formative years, as well as some general favourites. Additionally, I wrote a commentary for each track, which you can read either on Words On Tracks’ Facebook page, or here below the fold. Thanks to Fred for kindly inviting me. Be sure to give Words On Tracks a ‘like’ if you’re on Facebook. Hope you enjoy it!

Kick with Chrome: A Chrome Experiment

Here’s a fun little project for which I handled the audio. It’s a set of three World Cup-themed mini games, comprising Infinite Dribble, Space Kick, and Shootout. You use your phone/tablet as a controller, linked with a Chrome browser session to play (though you can use the phone/tablet as the sole screen, too). You can read a little more about the technical showcase on the Chrome Blog.
