Romare announces new album “Love Songs: Part Two”(out 11th November on Ninja Tune)+Listen:Who Loves You?

 Love Songs: Part Two, Romare A taster to celebrate the forthcoming amorous excursions which make up his second album Love Songs: Part Two, Romare presents the single Who Loves You?. Combining a punk-funk b-line, a disco rhythm, a dubbed-out vocal sample and a hundred-and-one subtle elements you’ll barely notice, ‘Who Loves You?’ is that rare thing – a dancefloor filler with real intelligence and a genuine, low-slung sexiness.

Developing and expanding upon the brilliance of his debut Projections (voted LP of year in DJ Mag and supported by likes of Bonobo, Annie Mac and Four Tet), Love Songs: Part Two cements Romare’s reputation as one of the most exciting, confident and distinctive producers in electronic music. His sample sources have changed a little too, moving from the jazz and blues which distinguished Projections to disco and psychedelic. His parents love of Irish traditional folk music, which Romare grew up with have also influenced the sounds on this album.

I’ve tried to cover different areas,” Fairhurst explains, “from sexual urges to tender first encounters, from affairs to the questioning of one’s love.” Whatever Romare does, though, it’s held together by his own unique aesthetic, a sonic signature which stamps everything he does as his and his alone. An original reaching the height of his game, it’s time to listen… and fall in love.

#SaveFabric Campaign & Petition from Cameron at Fabric

save fabric
Fabric – one of the jewel’s in Britain’s nightlife crown and admired and loved internationally – has, despite all the fantastic hard work done by so many stakeholders in the last 18 months, been closed pending review.

This is a time for all of us to have our voices heard together – and make sure we are heard. Everything hangs in the balance. An enormous amount hangs in the balance right now and the world’s eyes are upon us all. What happens to Fabric happens to us all.

Please sign the petition here and share across social media including the official hashtags #SaveFabric and #nightlifematters

From Alan Miller, Chairman of Night Time Industries Association:

We are hopeful and confident that with all the fantastic work done by so many stakeholders across London recently, that Islington Council will find a way along with the Police to ensure that what the Mayor of London has said – and what we all want and need – that Fabric will be able to continue operations, leading the way as it does internationally and in the UK with it’s “gold standard” of professionalism and for us to retain one of Britain’s most loved cultural gems.”

From Cameron Leslie, co-founder of fabric:

As you know by now fabric is facing the very real threat of closure on Sept 6th. If fabric’s licence is revoked or onerous conditions placed upon it that make it impossible to operate the London will lose yet another venue. However, stringent the operating policies and procedures, venues are currently too far downstream on the problems and risks to avoid the inevitable.

We are asking that the Police work with us as they did for such a long time to take the challenges we all face head on. Please take a moment to sign the petition on the link below and share with friends, family and fans, hopefully the London Borough of Islington and the Mayor will take note.

DJ Shadow feat. Run The Jewels – Nobody Speak (Official Video)

DJ Shadow feat. Run The Jewels - Nobody Speak
DJ Shadow has unveiled the music video for the song “Nobody Speak” featuring Run The Jewels, a standout track from his latest album ‘The Mountain Will Fall,’ out now on Mass Appeal Records. The video depicts a meeting of leaders that quickly descends into chaos, a scene not unlike what is unfolding in governments around the globe. It also features appearances by DJ Shadow and Run The Jewels.

Says DJ Shadow: “We wanted to make a positive, life-affirming video that captures politicians at their election-year best. We got this instead.”

Says Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike: “It’s such a dope video. It’s what I really wish Trump and Hillary would just do and get it over with…And even in that fight I think Hillary would win – and that’s not an endorsement.

The video was directed by Sam Pilling and produced by Pulse Films, stars Igor Tsyshkevych and Ian Bailey, and was shot in NYC, London and Ukraine.

The Scheme – Can’t Stop [Official Music Video]

The Scheme - Can't Stop
One listen to the latest single ‘Can’t Stop’from London based pop-trio The Scheme, and the song’s title is exactly how you’d describe your relationship with the track’s replay button. With artwork being diligently handled by the brilliant graffiti artist Endless, and remixes from the excellent Wideboys and Westfunk, ‘Can’t Stop’is a delicious slice of pop-rock that will be entering your ears one way or another.

The trio is comprised of Kris, Kyle and Aleksey, a deft mix of two Brits and one American. They are very excited to have artwork duties handed over to Endless, one of the biggest names in graffiti and urban art worldwide today. Endless has had work seen worldwide, including in Singapore; this led to a collaboration with fellow artists Gilbert and George. He is represented by West London gallery Graffik, where you can see an Endless solo exhibition this summer.

The Scheme are also gleeful about their opportunity to have Can’t Stop remixed by the likes of Wideboys and WestFunk. Portsmouth-born duo Wideboys are the go-to-guys for a superb remix. They worked with Rihanna on her album ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ and also on original songs with Roll Deep, The Wanted, and Liberty X. They have made remixes for a huge number of artists, including their club mix of ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’by The Saturdays, which reached No.2 in the UK singles chart. Meanwhile, London based producer WestFunk is also a prolific remixer, having put his own magic touch on songs ranging from Jason Derulo to Enrique Iglesias. Expect both of these remixes to do some serious damage on the club charts when ‘Can’t Stop’is released September 23rd.

Tour Dates:
2nd Sept: Corporation, Sheffield
6th Sept: Oran Mor, Glasgow
8th Sept: O2 Academy2, Newcastle
9th Sept: Leeds Uni Stylus, Leeds
10th Sept: Rescue Rooms, Nottingham

Just Be feat. Jesse Monroe -Dip Your Finger

Just Be feat. Jesse Monroe -Dip Your FingerMusic is often used as a means to forget, escape and withdraw from the world around us. In some cases it even has the ability to transport, and Just Be’s ‘Dip Your Finger EP’ on Rebellion does just that. The UK born DJ and producer has created a four track release with accompanying vocals from the ethereal Jesse Monroe.

I’ve been spent the last six months writing futurist electronica soundscapes for the big screen so it’s been great to get back to my roots and produce some warm, moving house and tech music – and working with my beloved Jesse on the vocals again – I feel these tracks work both in the dance floor and for listening pleasure. Enjoy”. Just Be

‘Dip Your Finger’ opens up the EP with seven minutes of otherworldly goodness. Just Be seamlessly brings together Monroe’s beautiful vocals with a range of sounds that sets the tone for an immensely warm and absorbing release. All the tracks follow on from each other with a real sense of consistency and the EP closes with a deeper edit of ’The Good Old Days’, taking the listener into the final stages of an enchanting journey.
