Bill Ryder-Jones' beautiful debut EP 'A Leave Taking Soundtrack' is now available as a free downloadhere. Herein,Jones made a leap into the field of orchestral music and landed firmly with an exquisite work that gives some indication of his forthcoming album.
Bill Ryder-Jones: ‘When I left the band I wasn't playing much music at all but in 2009 a friend got in touch asking if I would write something for this short he was making, which I did. It's pretty much the only thing I wrote that year but the process opened another world up to me. We thought it'd be nice to give it away to the people who have been interested in what I've been doing on my own and also to hint at the future a little bit. My album, which is a soundtrack inspired by a novel, is pretty much a progression from the things learnt when writing for Leave Taking.

Filmed around Dust’s remote habitat in rural north Wales and in collaboration with director Isaac Eastgate, ‘Learning To Love’ proves real the LA PRIEST fever dream in its visual decadence, combining the good and evil of LA PRIEST’s sonic spectrum with a dizzying array of high frequency visions.

Ikonika has taken enormous strides since her classic 2008 single 'Please' (Hyperdub). Following the release of her 2010 debut album 'Contact, Love, Want, Have' (Hyperdub), Ikonika toured everywhere from Europe to Asia to Australia to North and South America. Her Pitchfork approved 2012 EP 'I Make Lists' (Hum + Buzz), explored a more club-focused direction whilst retaining her melodic sensibility. Azealia Banks also used her production on the mixtape track 'Neptune'.
In 2013, Ikonika unveiled her second album for Hyperdub, 'Aerotropolis'. Loosely based on her tour experiences and childhood growing up near London Heathrow airport, the album showcased her first collaboration with a vocalist (Jessy Lanza on 'Beach Mode') and introduced a new Latin Freestyle, Electro, R'n'B and Boogie influenced style. It was widely praised including 4/5 in Resident Advisor, 8/10 in NME and 2nd best album of the year in DJ Mag. She rounded the year off with nominations for Best Producer and Best Album at DJ Mag's Best of British awards, and a remix of 'Lies' by Chvrches that was voted 2nd best remix of the year in Dummy.
2014 saw the release of the 'Position EP' (Hyperdub), a collection of tough, pummelling club trax influenced by her Night Slugs affiliation, contributions to Hyperdub's 10th anniversary compilations and a packed touring schedule. She also completed mixes for FACT, Serato, SSENSE, Red Bull, Rinse FM and Triple J. For 2015, expect a release on Night Slugs, more new music and worldwide touring.
DJ Marfox’ debut 12” 'Eu Sei Quem Sou' (“I Know Who I Am”) declared his insistence on claiming cultural roots, and roots as an impetus for creative, technological and - perhaps most critically - collective social evolution. Marfox aka Marlon Silvas’s ancestry traces back to the former Portuguese colony of São Tomé e Príncipe. He began producing and DJing as a teenager, disseminating music via YouTube and independently releasing his music via mp3s in Lisbon. His DJs “di Ghetto” compilation EP produced with his crew by the same name acquired iconic status in urban Portugal and diasporic African communities throughout Europe. Helping to create a grassroots network of young creatives seeking to breach new territory in sound and culture. 'Eu Sei Quem Sou', released via the then emerging label Príncipe in 2012, articulated brash poetics with complex driving percussion, dark baroque techno, garage, bass, and batida (instrumental kuduro) demonstrating Marfox’ complex aesthetic matrices.
His most recent 'Lucky Punch' EP was released early last Summer on Lit City Trax (DJ Rashad, Traxman, ..) and his glorious US live premiere happened at the label's party at The Westway, as part of the Red Bull Music Academy New York Festival. Also topping a fantastic year, his commissioned remix work for tUnE-yArDs "Water Fountain" single got a digital release before December was over. Marfox has just delivered a new and eagerly awaited EP for Príncipe to be released soon and recently saw his 'Take Off' track included on Warp Record's Cargaa 1 compilation. Listen to 'Beat And Break' from the Lucky Punch EP below.
