There has been a lot of reinventions going on in the music world. It’s been over a decade since UNKLE has released an album. The group is back with a new member and new sound. James Levelle along with new member Pablo Clements, have just released the new album ‘Where Did The Night Fall’. Gone are the days of the trip-hop sound, sampled beats, DJ Shadow collabos, and breakbeat experiments. This time around, the duo has opted for a more industrial / Brit rock sound full of basslines, guitars, distorted vocals, and more. Featured on vocals are a plethora of musicians from all across Europe including Katrina Ford, Black Angels, Autolux, Elle J, Big In Japan, and more.
The new record draws inspiration from groups like Radiohead, Muse, Broken Social Scene, and even Joy Divison. ‘Where Did The Night Full’ art translates well as an indication to the content of the album. The tracks are moody song songs as opposed to sonic experiments.
Lavelle and Celements have stepped it up to become more than just producers with this new record. Although some may argue that is a less than mediocre return (did you really expect another “In A State”?), the guys are definitely headed in the right direction.
Belgium-based band, Aeroplane is gearing to release up to release their debut artist album later this year. The boys recently joined a massive line up to celebrate Pete Tong’s 500th Essential Mix event at Circus Liverpool. They almost never made it to the gig after being here in the states for Coachella (check out Aeroplane playing Om / Child’s Play James Curd at Coachella) and having Volcano issues.
Greenskeepers are back! ‘Live Like You Wanna Live’ is the first single off of their new album also called ‘Live Like You Wanna Live’ out at the end of July going back to the original cast of Greenskeepers but with a surprise addition. This album was written by Curd and Maurer, with Curd producing it from his Chicago studio. He focused on creating upbeat hooks using an array of vintage analog keyboards, fusing together guitars and Maurer’s vocals. With the music laid down, Maurer and Curd began the song writing.
To give the album a twist, Tommie Sunshine was brought into the mix. Tommie took all the separate song parts and put them back together adding live drums, sharp cutting synths to add an overall edge to the album. The result is a new Greenskeepers sound that takes the listener on an audio journey to many different places. With catchy choruses, clever lyrics and non-stop energy, this album inspires you to encapsulate it’s title to “Live Like You Want To Live”.
The single features remixes from Tommie Sunshine, Stereoheroes, James Curd and the infamous Wallpaper. Take a listen to the streams below and don’t forget to visit ITUNES if you like what you hear.

Limited print fashion / art magazine, Visionaire Magazine is coming out with Issue 58 titled “Spirit”. The issue features a dedication to recently passed fashion designer Alexander Mcqueen and features artist Nick Knight, Steven Klein, Lady Gaga, and more.
Published only three times a year in a very limited run, Visionaire features a different format and theme with each issue. They’ve released magazines in box sets, circular containers, and more.
We have so much love and appreciation for all the the fans, the bass heads, and the supporters who have helped make us what we are today. So now we are offering you the exclusive access to a brand new tune – the Bassnectar remix of Seek & Destroy by Metallica.
It has been our secret weapon since it was unleashed on the crowd at Coachella, and now it is ready to be yours. Metallica was responsible for my first true moment of “OH MY GODWHAT IS THATNOISE?!?!?!” way way way back when i was a little kid.
Seek & Destroy is one of their anthems from their old school days of ripping up rooms and melting faces, and this is a tribute to their churning, freakshow force; reworked and resmashed into a new bass bath of pure, heavy, undulating crush music.
