We’ve been a little obsessed with Holy Other of late at FACT.
The Berlin-based bedroom producer has a smattering of tracks to stream on his Soundcloud, including slo-mo remixes of Mosca and Boyz II Men. The one that’s really catching our ear though, is ‘We Over’, a gothic space station paean that owes as much to gospel music as it does the usual reference points of Onoehtrix and Salem.
‘We Over’ will be coming out on 7” at some point in October, via London label Transparent. You can stream it here:
Swedish pop dreamers Little Dragon, who have just announced a UK tour as well as appearances on the forthcoming Gorillaz tour, will be putting out a new 12” on November 1. It’s for a track called ‘Blinking Pigs’, from recent album Machine Dreams, and will be backed by a Sbtrkt remix of ‘Never Never’. You can stream ‘Blinking Pigs’ below.
The latest 12” from the Local Action label is a collaboration between Deep Teknologi’s T. Williams and Terri Walker, a vocalist who recently signed to Roc-a-fella.
Pairing spacious, low-end centred house with nocturnal, vulnerable vocals, it’s arguably the best T. Williams track to date, and comes backed with a remix by Mosca – the whole 12” can be heard here, and will be released in mid-October:
Before that, on September 27, Deep Teknologi will be putting out a three-track T. Williams EP titled Chop & Screw. If you heard Sinden’s recent FACT mix (or, indeed, Brackles’ recent sets) then you’ll recognise the groove-heavy title track, and ‘Hard Cash’ and particularly the late night thud of ‘In the Deep’ prove more than ample backing.
Finally, the debut EP by post-techno new boys Raime is out today, on Blackest Ever Black, the new label by FACT’s own Kiran Sande. Picking up acclaim from Resident Advisor, The Wire and more, it probably goes without saying that we’d also vastly recommend it. You can stream a track from it, ‘We Must Hunt Under The Wreckage Of Many Systems’, here:
