Doon Kanda

This November, Hyperdub Records​ will drop the debut album of Doon Kanda (aka Jesse Kanda​). He is also known as a visual artist and directed music videos for FKA Twigs, Bjork, and Arca. Don’t wanna talk more before listening to the full album but seems like it’s gonna be big. In the meantime, if you didn’t hear his previous EPs (Heart and Luna both released by Hyperdub) go and check them.

Sir Hiss – Tehran Gunshots

This year, Sir Hiss first greeted us with a dark, hazy, warped, and weeping vinyl, “Rolling” (released by White Peach Records), which was followed by an EP “Frequent Flyer”. I thought that was it for him this year, but NO!! Like any other hardworking Bristolian, he won’t stop. I first heard the A-side, Tehran Gunsgots, of his new 12″ on Kahn’s mix for BBC 1Xtra over a year ago. The interesting part of the song was the sample he used, “Anilar Bana Yeter” from Gulden Karabocek (a Turkish singer active in the 70s to 00s). If you are following his releases, sample usage is not news (he is using samples from all over the world, east to west). But I was not expecting a song from Gulden Karabocek. Anyways, now we have Tehran Gunshots on wax accompanied by Mr. Sandman on the B-side, released by his own label No More Mailouts. Already sold out at their Bandcamp store. Don’t sleep on this!

Soundrider Blue 1

SOUNDRIDER 5

Spotify is not bad but it’s still not the same thing. Plus, they still don’t allow to publish DJ mixes, mixtapes, etc. (do you remember the mixbank thing? yeah, it didn’t work for all). So, back to soundcloud and mixcloud. Here is the first mixtape of a new series. Soundrider Blue 1
////
Tamam, Spotify fena değil ama yine de aynı şey değil. Bir ara mixlerin de yayınlanabileceği bisistem üzerinde çalışıyoruz demişlerdi, o sistem doğru dürüst sistem çalışmıyo (Anlaşmalı oldukları şirketlerin yayınlarını kullanırsanız spoti de mixinizi yayınlatabilirsiniz, ne güzel).Durum böyle olunca eskiye döndük. Yeni serinin ilk mixtape’i: Soundrider Mavi 1

Royal Trux – White Stuff

WTF !?!? Royal Trux is going to release a new album after 19 years?! That’s unexpected. First glimpse to the album sounds like everything is still in the place. Now, I am curious about the rest of it. It’s gonna be released on March 1st by Fat Possum Records.

///////

Royal Trux’ın 19 sene sonra yeni bir albüm çıkarmasını pek beklemiyordum. 2019 çok acaip başlamıştı zaten, acaip de devam ediyor. Yayınladıkları ilk şarkıdan görünen her şey yerli yerinde, albümün geri kalanını merakla bekliyorum. Şimdilik pre-order’da ama 1 Mart’ta Fat Possum Records etiketiyle çıkmış olacak.

Sick Of It All – Wake The Sleeping Dragon!

NY Hardcore efsaneleri Sick Of It All yeni albüm çıkarmış. Amerika’nın en Angarali grubu SOIA yanlış yapmaz, gene taş gibi albüm. Ilk klibi “That crazy white boy shit”e çekmişler. Şarkıda DC çıkışlı Hardcore’un öncü, efsane grubu Bad Brains’e selam çakmışlar. ///
NY Hardcore Legends Sick Of It All have released a new album. They never made wrong move in all those years of their presence (32 to be precise). It’s another solid album from them. The first video came out for the second track of the album, “That crazy white boy shit”, where they hailed the pioneers of Hardcore Punk, the legendary Bad Brains that emerged out of the DC Hardcore scene back in the late 70s.

Deben Bhattacharya – Paris to Calcutta

Deben Bhattacharya 1955’te Paris’ten Kalküta’ya doğru yola çıkar. Her geçtiği ülkede de kayıtlar yapar. Bu kayıtları Sublime Frequencies toparlayıp 4 saatlik bir albüm olarak basmış. Hazine!! /// Highly influential field recordist, poet, filmmaker, musicologist, and amateur ethnomusicologist Deben Bhattacharya made a road trip from Paris to Calcutta in 1955 with a converted milk delivery van. He spent some time on every country he passes and made some field recordings. Sublime Frequencies collected and published these recordings as a 4-hour album. Treasure!!
