The Heliocentrics w. Melvin Van Peebles

It’s been a long time coming and it’s finally almost here – the long trailed album by The Heliocentrics featuring Melvin Van Peebles drops on Now Again on Oct 7th on double CD and deluxe vinyl with bonus instrumentals disc. It comes on like Cannonball Adderly‘s David Axelord-produced ‘Soul Zodiac’ and from the 4 tracks I’ve heard, doesn’t disappoint. More info here and an exclusive instrumental to check out.

New Aphex and FSOL albums

Not one but two electronica bombshells were dropped this week – first the Aphex Twin blimp and stencils then the announcement yesterday of a new album. You can pre-order the album here including being entered into a raffle to purchase a £250 (!) limited edition vinyl version and read the press release which looks like it’s been google-translated from Japanese.

Over on Facebook, Gaz from Future Sound Of London has finally been giving some previews of Environment 5 – the long-awaited next installment of their Environments series, the low-key soundscape set that they’ve been releasing for the past few years. This time though it seems as if this is THE new Future Sound of London album as the tracks are all said to have been written this year instead of from their archive. This will also be available on vinyl as well as CD and Download and note that it’s ‘Environment’ instead of the plural. Now all we need is a new Kraftwerk album…

Future Shock on Solid Steel

Future Shock was a 2hr mix that I cooked up for an online ‘pirate’ radio station a couple of friends set up earlier this year called Altar Ego Radio. Billed as ‘Music from the Future you remember from your Past’, I mixed sci-fi electronica with a retro feel from Jokers of the Scene, Falty DL. The Books, Sculpture, Nico Motte and Jeremy Schmidt. Here’s the first hour, exclusively sans the chat of the original broadcast which was hosted like a regular radio show. Much like the recent Magpie Music mix of a few weeks ago I intend to expand on these themes in forthcoming Future Shock mixes focusing on the more electronic side of my current tastes. Altar Ego Radio will also be back on the air over the August Bank holiday weekend, more info here

Ryoji Ikeda’s ‘Spectra’ in London

I finally saw Ryoji Ikeda‘s ‘Spectra’ yesterday in the Queen Victoria Park in London and it is stunning. These photos don’t do it justice but try to see it today before it disappears. Installed in secret to mark the centenary of the beginning of WW1 last week, it is part of the Lights Out commemoration for all those who fought and died in the First World War.
