Terry Riley Apocalypto Remix

Since time has officially ended, I can confidently declare that this is a new all-time favorite. Apparently Terry Riley invented the remix circa 1967, in the form of a 20-minute tape edit of an already immaculate soul jam:

I found this one at my new favorite blog, which is also a (now-defunct) time machine: Orpheus Music.

Throw the Money in the Air

Cronies Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid have both been busy since their collaborative album Tongues dropped last year. Hebden's conspicuous sampling of Conrad Schnitzler on Tongues made his allegiance to synth-krautrock quite clear, and his latest release as Four Tet reaffirms that link. The title track from the Ringer "mini-album" bears a curious resemblance to Manuel Göttsching records from the 1970s - coincidence? But Ringer is equal parts Motor City and motorik... sounds like Hebden wants his slice of that sweet techno-pop crossover pie which Axel Willner has been feasting on for the past year:

Four Tet - "Ringer" [alt link]

Meanwhile, Steve Reid went to Africa to record with a Senegalese jazz ensemble. Reid turned this material over to Hebden, who added electronics and mixed the record. Here's the title track from Daxaar:

Steve Reid Ensemble - "Daxaar" [alt link]

Andrea Sartori - "Horror Vaqui" [alt link]

Large Marge Sent Me...

I'm still kicking myself for missing the Excepter performance at MonkeyTown earlier this month. Lately I've been consoling myself by putting their recent output for the Paw Tracks label on heavy rotation. The Debt Dept. LP finds our favorite stalwarts of mutant electronics in top form. Mark your calendars for their show in Brooklyn at Grasslands on the 29th.

Excepter - "Greenhouse/Stretch" [alt link]

Yet another peerless production from Underground Resistance cohorts Drexciya:

Drexciya - "Black Sea" [alt link]

And finally, here's a Michael Rother rarity, courtesy of The Wire.

Trans-Atlantic Express

Kode 9 is unquestionably the man of the hour. Not only is his Hyperdub label responsible for some of the world's most adventurous dubplates, but his relentless remix work has the auterist calibre of producers like Carl Craig... and he's a damn good DJ to boot. On that note, the new Dabrye 12" on Spectral Sound is an intercontinental wet dream. As if new material from Tadd Mullinix weren't enough (cf. the new James T. Cotton LP), the Get Dirty vinyl features remixes by Kode 9 and Flying Lotus. The audio virus is now a global pandemic of Y2K/SARS proportions - put this one in your melting pot and smoke it!

Dabrye ft. MF Doom - "Air (Kode 9 Remix - Instrumental)" [alt link]

And here's the latest heat from Hyperdub. Not sure who Zomby is just yet, but his Myspace has some real goodies embedded on it.

Zomby - "Spliff Dub (Rustie Remix)" [alt link] a trans-Atlantic mash-up from yours truly. Kind of a rough mix, oh well:

Doctor Cuts - "Ayo Spliff Dub" [alt link]

Speaking of Carl Craig... last, but obviously not least, here are some sizzling, afro-futuristic grooves from the master(s):

Tony Allen - "Kilode (Carl Craig Remix)" [alt link]
