J’ai rencontré Pusha Mau au Jimmy Whoo à Amsterdam, lors de l’une des soirées Stush Stush que lui et son crew organise régulièrement. Leur son ? BMore, Booty, Club Hip Hop, Breakbeat… Après avoir invité Kazey et Aaron Lacrate, les badman du Dam vont taper dans du cainri bien phat très prochainement. A suivre.

Pho et Thu forment le duo de beatmakers Tha Trickaz, signé sur le label de notre homeboy le black lion Otis, Hyperdogs Recordings. D’inspiration abstract, la musique de Tha Trickaz rappelle l’émotion d’un “Endtroducing” version 2007, où samples inédits rencontrent beats acérés et élégants. Superbe.

Esthétiquement dérivée du modèle original de 1969, la Dodge Challenger soigne la ligne type bad bwoy : long capot, regard agressif et arrière court.

DJ Winnash – Electro Breakbeat Turbo Mix

In your more cynical moments you might think that the already overcrowded world of experimental DIY electro needs another knob twiddling home studio dweller like it needs a collection of badly warped vinyl but consider the case of Simon Smerdon AKA Mothboy, a geezer of no little wit and invention. For starters, he’s no fresh faced upstart, having been around long enough to amass a not inconsiderable discography and, what’s more, anybody who claims he’s fairly popular in “awkward chin stroking circles” has to be commended for their healthy sense of perspective. Then again, Mothboy – AKA Aphid Tracks, Glassjawa, Esayes, Jack West and Team Cyphen – is no straightforward electro head, a point that’s underlined by the fact that he includes such unchilled, unelectro, un-trip-hop gems as PiL’s ‘Second Edition’ and Napalm Death’s ‘From Enslavement To Obliteration’ alongside more predictable fare like A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Low End Theory’ and the Beastie Boys’ ‘Check Your Head’ on his list of favourite albums. But then the head scratching eclecticism of Mothboy’s taste in listening only reflects the diverse output of this self styled meddler in “alternative dark electro beats”. Originally from way out west i.e. sleepy Devon Mothboy’s musical apprenticeship took the form of stints playing bass in a string of thrash metal, punk and hardcore bands before relocating to London and starting out on the next sharply contrasting chapter in his ongoing musical journey which saw him joining forces with ‘dark hoppers’ Ocosi. Intruigingly, it’s a career path not unlike the one that transformed one time Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris from extreme noise terrorist to Mick Harris the trip hop, electro whizz of Scorn fame.

Chris Clark New Album

Its Chris Clark’s time to take his place within the top ranks of Warp’s best electronic music makers. Shortened to Clark, he’s produced the album of his career and one of the favourite albums of the Warp office this year. It seems like a new start for Clark, Body Riddle is meditative, simplified but with more musical colour, subtle sonics, melody and rhythm, the drill and bass workouts of older work seem to have been left behind, with Chris finding the confidence to do exactly what he wants and do it really well.On some tracks Chris plays neatly edited drums which gives the music a live feeling, the straight melodics of Herr Bar, the dense, oceanic cymbal splashes and droning violins of Frau Wav, are a strong example of the album’s intuitive development. Each track subtly transforms itself into something stranger than it was at the beginning whilst still keeping it’s integrity with incredibe attention to detail. Examples are the tidy reflective analogue strings and hip hop handclaps of ‘Ted’, the martial boom-bap drums of ‘Vengeance Drools’ which opens itself into a delicate chorus of voices and harp. This album sets him apart and establishes him firmly as a major Warp talent. Body Riddle seems designed to leave a lasting impression, pull on your heart strings, and also to sound very fresh, so give it some space this autumn; you will fall in love with it.
