George FitzGerald - Resident Advisor Podcast #274

House meets garage meets bass.

Although operating in a grey area between genres is hardly a novelty these days—particularly for a London-based producer—George FitzGerald is one of those pulling off the trick better than most. He's closely associated with Hotflush Recordings—itself a bastion of ambiguity—thanks to a pair of 12-inches that came at bass music from a house and garage starting point. (Or was it the other way around?) FitzGerald built his grounding in the scene as a co-promoter of Man Make Music, the London party that has been showcasing, well, a little bit of everything since its inception back in 2007. The crew behind the event has now begun an offshoot imprint of the same name, with FitzGerald helming its maiden release, Fernweh / Hearts, which coincidently hits record shops next week.

FitzGerald leverages his ties to Hotflush on RA.247 by bringing bags of the label's unreleased material to the table, interspersed with the types of hybrid sounds that have made London arguably the most exciting destination in electronic music at present.

Radiohead - Codex (Illum Sphere Remix)

As part of sporadic, enigmatic and ongoing remix work of Radiohead's 'King Of Limbs' album our man Illum Sphere had the honour of giving their track Codex a relick in his own inimitable style. The result, as you'd expect, is nothing short of spectacular and sits comfortably alongside the efforts of the other artists to have embarked on the task of remixing the work of the biggest band in the world, such as Four Tet, Shed, Mark Pritchard and Jacques Greene amongst others.

Cop the single (and the other 3 in the series) over at the dedicated King Of Limbs site now.

Sepalcure - Love Pressure Remixed

If the orginal wasn't enough, check out this ludicrously good remix package of the duo's debut Hot Flush EP.

Since Sepalcure’s debut EP, Love Pressure dropped last summer, the New York based act otherwise known as Travis Stewart (Machinedrum) and Praveen Sharma (Braille) have made a lasting impression on the electronic sphere over the last year with unforgettable live performances across the USA and Europe, as well as a stunning follow-up EP, Fleur. Their unique chemistry as a duo is undeniable and has resulted in a soulful, emotive, and energetic style that is entirely their own.

On this remix EP, five of the USA’s most exciting dance music producers of late have offered their unique takes on the original tracks, all bringing their own signature elements into the fore: XI (Orca, Toronto), FaltyDL (Planet Mu, New York), Jimmy Edgar (!K7, Detroit), Daedelus (Ninja Tune, Los Angeles), and recent Hotflush signing Lando Kal (Lazer Sword, Berlin via San Francisco).

Rustie - Glass Swords LP

It is upon us.

After taking shape in the studio over the course of the past two years, ‘Glass Swords’ arrives, and as the otherworldly landscape of the album artwork suggests, it is epic and alien.

Watch a short video clip for album opener and title track 'Glass Swords' below - if anything, this should keep you guessing.

Glasgow’s talent pool clearly runs deep, and if the city’s last few years of genre-busting electronic music have made anything remotely clear it’s that Rustie is one of the deep-fried kingdom’s crown jewels. Emerging with the rest of the multi-talented Numbers crew, and with only a handful of laser-guided releases to his name, his presence far outreaches his focused, evolving discography. Rightly mentioned in the same breath with many of the most innovative producers in the world, astute Pitchfork scribe Martin Clarke once described Rustie’s music “like a metaphor for living in intense digital excess” – something everyone should be able to relate to.

As is often the case, this digital excess also mirrors the excesses of the physical world, and so Rustie time travels for the cocaine-addled synthesizer washes and searing guitar tones of 1980’s pop, the cash-infused bombast of new-millennium R&B, the pit-of-your-stomach ecstasy high of the most classic rave memories and the bloodshot scowl of white-hot pirate radio broadcasts. In 2007, with a new generation of irreverent producers and artists seemingly simultaneously uploading their music to MySpace, Rustie’s ‘Jagz The Smack’ EP was a miniature revelation. In a swift five tracks, it managed to not only synthesize the tone of mid-decade electronic music, but also provided a danceable prediction for much of what would soon be called “UK bass music” (not to mention many other, far less eloquent, names).

It would take three more years to move through a string of now classic 12”s like ‘Zig-Zag’, ‘Bad Science’ and ‘Play Doe/Tempered’, his collaboration with Bristol’s mighty Joker. This unfettered run was capped by a string of essential remixes (or “Resmacks” in the parlance of Rustie) for the likes of Jamie Lidell, Kelis, The Big Pink and Nicki Minaj, leading into his debut EP for Warp, ‘Sunburst’. In another breathless five-track flash, ‘Sunburst’ amalgamated Rustie’s love for obscure Japanese prog-rock, 16-bit video game sonics and icy grime and Detroit techno heft into a fleeting vision of the future of rave music. Snare rolls ricocheted, synths undulated in hypercolor hues and the bass bubbled over, the stage was set.
