Let’s Have A Kiki [OLUGBENGA EDIT]. Have been sitting on this one for a little while now. Very pleased to let people hear it. Also pleased to be in a remix line-up that includes 2 Bears.

LOCK THE DOORZ.

The rest of the E&B exclusives are up now. Thanks to Dazed, Mixmag and my good old pals at Drownedinsound.

EPIC & ULYSSES

In mixes, remixes, tunes on July 17, 2012 at 15:01

It’s been a while. There are two reasons for this. One is that I’ve been working on A LOT of new music. The second is that this blog is getting a complete overhaul soon.

ANYWHO… I have an EP hitting the internetwaves next week. I’m calling it a ‘wordless’ EP because even though there are no lead vocals on any of the tracks, there is a lot of my singing. It’s a short collection past remixes without their lead vocals and a couple of new original tunes. It’s called Epic & Blues.

Every day this week, a different site will be exclusively featuring one of the tracks. Clashmusic got the ball rolling yesterday.

By Day I Am Nothing, By Night I Am Myself

Excited to be letting this mixtape loose as it’s been burning a hole in my hard drive for a few weeks now. To get a look-in from Questlove of The Mighty Roots Crew is just otherworldly, too.

Part of Okayafrica’s Africa In Your Earbuds series. You can check out their full article and the tracklist here or just listen above.

More news waiting in the wings. We are living in exciting times (ha).

WHITENOISE

SO… my brother Seye also makes music. And he’s a DON. I got the chance to remix his debut single ‘White Noise’ and none other than Mr Bestival himself Rob Da Bank gave it the first ever play on BBC Radio 1. Spoiler alert: NO DRUMS.

Another remix hot off the press. I put it into my Block.fm mix last month but now I can properly let it loose. Jim Kroft is a dude and I would highly recommend checking out the original version of this song – it’s actually a duet with the lovely Lianne La Havas.

Anywho… Enjoy!

They’re like buses, right? No new remixes for a while and then two come at once. Very pleased to be able to set these loose (at last). People who’ve been checking my blog and mixes will know that I’ve been a big fan of Three Trapped Tigers since their inception about four years ago. Main man Tom Rogerson is a good friend of mine (we met playing in Jeremy from Summer Camp‘s old band). I was over the moon when they asked me for a remix and I picked my favourite song from their album. The whole thing – Route One Or Die – comes highly recommended, though. Download my mix below.

Diagrams is a new project from San Genders, who some of you might know from folk/electronica types Tunng. I’m a fan both of Tunng and their label Full Time Hobby. So the prospect of a remix was a tasty one indeed. The original version of Hill is a 5/4, Tom Waits style delight and also well worth checking out. My remix is gonna be on the flip-side of a 7-inch that’ll be out before too long. In the meantime, have a stream on moi.

Liiiiife is too short…

Metronomy toured with Ghostpoet back in April this year and we really seemed to hit it off. We both got shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize and at last night’s Awards ceremony I got a chance to catch up with him. I was reminded of this little edit from the end of my JAND mix for Drownedinsound.

” Life is too short to store up grudges / Life is too long to make no plans.”

Easily my favourite lyric by anyone this year. Stops me in my tracks every time I hear it sung.

The drum break on this edit is taken from a Bloc Party tune… You might hear a bit of Kele screaming in the back there too.

Got a couple of other exciting remixes in the pipeline. They’ll be up here before long.

Tootles.

Esben and the Witch and me

NEW REMIX ALERT.

As always, a little late off the mark with this one. For anyone who’s reading this… hello from New York. We’re here promoting the US release of the Metronomy record.

A little while ago, one of Esben and the Witch’s managers got in contact with me about possibly doing a remix. As I was a fan anyway, the answer was ‘YES’. This is the result. I went slightly crazy working on it in the windowless room that is my studio.

It was debuted on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6Music morning radio show. She called me ‘an all-around good egg,’ at which point I very nearly quantum-leaped.

Enjoy!

I certainly did.

had A LOT of fun making this. hopefully you can hear it.

Neon Asylum is a cool, cool DJ. I think this is gonna be on a remix EP at some point. Who’s afraid of 140bpm?
