Here is the latest gift from the Bassnectar Labs: soaring, emotional vocals over a bed of hot, churning beats and thick, rolling bass… the perfect mix of naughty and nice. TURN IT UP!
From Lorin Bassnectar
“It is a musical mutatant marriage between elements of my song ‘Timestretch’ and Nelly Furtado’s classic “Turn Out The Lights”. A few weeks ago I heard a bootleg by SLOFMAN; a dope remix of Nelly Furtado’s song, but his bassline was NOTEFORNOTE identical to Timestretch. My first thought was “oh daym this is going to mix perfectly with timestretch” and as i listened more i decided to take the mix further. So i re-tuned elements of my track, and re-mixed it into a more straightforward arrangement, laid bits of the acapella over the beats, and went to work. My buddy Sayr even suggested a different melodic idea for the bassline, and my homies at Arlyn Studios in Austin stretched and edited her vocals, doing micro-tuning and loving it up. It was a group effort, and of course it is an unofficial bootleg, i decided to call it “Magical World”. I played it on repeat all weekend and on multiple occasions my body was helplessly covered in waves of goosebumps. I was overcome by thoughts of how special it is to be alive, and how magical it truly is!!! Nelly, if you are out there, WE LOVEYOURVOICE!!!!!"
After pausing an 18-year career with partner Ben Watt in best-selling alt-pop duo Everything But The Girl (1982–2000), followed by a self-imposed hiatus to start a family, Tracey Thorn re-emerged in 2007 to a wave of critical acclaim with the glittering autobiographical folk-disco of Out of the Woods, her first solo album since 1982’s indie classic A Distant Shore.
2007’s “Out of the Woods” was one of the most slept on albums of the year here in the States. Tracks like “It’s All True”, “Easy”, “Falling Of The Log”, and “Raise The Roof” placed Tracey somewhere between traditional Everything But The Girl and Imogen Heap.
After three years, her new album, “Love and Its Opposite” will be released on May 18 on Merge Records in the US and Ben Watt’s new Strange Feeling Records (a sub label to Buzzin Fly) in the UK.
Partnering again with Berlin-based producer Ewan Pearson (who worked on much of Out of the Woods), Thorn has created an album that is striking in its simplicity. “It’s a record about the person I am now and the people around me,” she observes. “About real life after forty.”
Recorded in Berlin and London, the ten-song collection boasts eight original compositions and two covers (a duet with Jens Lekman on Lee Hazlewood’s “Come On Home To Me” and a poignant reading of The Unbending Trees’ “You Are a Lover”). The album also features guests such as Hot Chip’s Al Doyle, The Invisible’s Leo Taylor, Nashville songwriter-drummer Cortney Tidwell and Lost Valentinos’ guitarist Jono Ma.
Tracey Thorn’s “Love and Its Opposite” Drops May 18th.

Our boy is at it again! Child’s Play’s James Curd just slammed out another amazingly upbeat remix for Bang Gang artist Flight Facilities. The 12inch and digital single is coming out on Modular Records homies and fellow Aussie’s, Bang Gang records.
This is the debut single from Flight Facilities and features vocals from Giselle. All the remixes are great, but it’s really Curd who turns it up a notch.
Cobblestone Jazz blew everyone away at the Om Miami event two years ago. Immediately after their performance, US promoters and fans all wanted a piece of Cobblestone Jazz. Instead of hitting the US road, the band officially added a fourth member to the trio and headed into the studio to finish work on their new album for K7.
“The Modern Deep Left Quartet” is the second artist album from the group. In Cobblestone tradition, you can expect deep dubby house perfection. Tracks like “Chance Dub”, “Mr. Polite”, and “Fiesta” are going to be great to hear live.
And as we all know with Cobblestone, it’s really in the live show. Hopefully we will see some US dates.
