SAY AHH

In tunes on October 14, 2012 at 14:14

So, as always, I’ve been working on lots of music. That and setting up a new studio in my new home of Brighton. Lots of new music to come – remixes and original tunes that I’m very proud of.

In the meantime, this is something I did for a bit of fun to slip in when I’m DJing. For all those 90’s babies who grew up on 8 and 16 bit games.

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

Love is the Devil in the Details

The second in the Epic & Blues series. Premiered by the excellent guys over at Okayafrica.

EPIC & ULYSSES

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.

NEW YEAR ISH / OKAYAFRICA

In tunes on January 18, 2012 at 09:18

It’s no excuse, but we’ve been Metronomy-touring for the last few weeks. Threw this up on New Year’s Day. First original tune I’ve put out there in a little while, but there will be a whole bunch more this year.

It got some love on Okayafrica today, which I’m super-excited about ’cause Okayafrica and the whole Okayplayer camp have a take on music that’s best referred to as DOPE.

The site’s blacked out today as part of the online protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act in the US, but I’d click on the image above anyway to find out just why SOPA’s attracting so much fuss.

NEW MIX / CLASH / ONE TO WATCH

In mixes, remixes, tunes on January 21, 2011 at 10:00

Exciting day for me. I spent a solid 10 days when I got back from LA working on a mix for Clashmusic.com. Drove me (and my lovely girlfriend) a little crazy.

But.

It was worth it! Clash have named me in their ‘Ones To Watch‘ and the mix is live on their site right now, as is the article I wrote to go along with it.

On to the next.

The G Is Silent [VOLUME TWO]

In mixes, remixes, tunes on December 13, 2010 at 11:18


Download separate MP3s here, or a continuous one above.

1. Overture / You + Your Adventures
2. Galifrey
3. Like An Angel With No Mercy
4. Ebute Meta
5. All The Models In The Fire
6. He’s Here Right Now
7. CELESTINE

10. Youthless – Golden Age [OLUGBENGA SILENT G EDIT]

After the NME’s exclusive last week, I’m pleased to say that the mix is now free to the world. Gratis. This is mostly original material. Where it’s not original (Gwen Stefani, Muse, Arcade Fire), hopefully it’s pretty obvious.

A big thanks to my brother Yemi for the cover image. And to EAN for mixing, mastering and being an all-around sensei.

ENJOY!

Like An Angel With No Mercy

In tunes on October 18, 2010 at 18:04

Have been working on a bunch of stuff recently that I’m not quite able to post because of release schedules and whatnot. This is a new song that’s been making me smile for quite a while, though.

It’ll be featuring (albeit in the usual heavily-remixed form) in my mixtape of all-original material that’ll be hitting this very blog in the first week of December.

behind you!

I’ve been doing some more singing for my buddy (AND ALL CAPS BROTHER) EAN. It’s an original this time. It’s called Don’t Turn Around (for now, anyway).

That’s about all there is to say, really! Have a listen…
