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 (UPDATE: the vinyl will be a week late, arriving on the 20th instead), 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.
Listen to clips from Isolette here:
255 generous artists have contributed to what amounts to almost a day’s worth of music, in aid of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity, all for the meagre sum of £12+. Buy here. I’ve contributed a new track: ‘Rowing to the Riverhead’.
A few video clips of my recent show at the MIRA festival in Barcelona have surfaced, giving you a taste of my set alongside Oliver Jennings’ visuals.

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.
In celebration of hitting 5k followers on Funckarma’s SoundCloud page, Roel Funcken has just uploaded the instrumental version of our Lamb remix. It’s free to grab… so feel free to grab it!
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!

Roel Funcken and I recently collaborated on this remix for electronic duo Lamb. They’re currently running a remix competition for ‘Heaven’, with first prize being inclusion on the vinyl re-issue of their 2001 album What Sound.
Wish us luck!
A new track of mine, Zome City, was released yesterday on Barcelona’s Lapsus Records, featuring on their DEU compilation, available on red vinyl and download. The compilation contains 17 tracks, from artists such as Plaid (vinyl-exclusive, sadly), Kelpe, Vector Lovers, and many more.
I’ve been playing a tweaked version of Zome City in my latest live set (skip to 08:50 in the Utrecht recording posted a week or so ago if you’re curious to compare the two), and find having a track on vinyl to be a satisfying closure to the production process—something I’ve really missed with the download releases, as it’s been a while since my last vinyl release. Looking forward to seeing some more new music on vinyl this year!
Firstly, a little notice. There are a handful of ‘National Ignition’ heavyweight prints remaining, so if you’ve been thinking about grabbing one, now’s the time. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Each print comes with an instant download, too.
Secondly, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be releasing a new track on a forthcoming charity compilation. Entitled ‘Touched’, the compilation is a huge bumper release featuring many familiar names within the electronica milieu, including many favourites of mine, such as The Future Sound of London, Plaid, Brothomstates, Arovane, Datassette, and dozens more (here’s the full line-up). It’s a staggering compilation, with the aim of raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. It’s a wonderful cause to be a part of, and I can’t wait to announce its release.
