DJ PROMO: Austra – ‘Olympia’ (Album)

Following up our previous DJ promo featuring remixes of Austra’s single “Home,” this digital DJ promo includes the album Olympia, out now on Domino. The album touches on a range of sentiments that stem from a relationship ending, a relationship beginning, and friends’ struggles with addiction and motivation. Despite the sometimes dark lyrics written by Katie Stelmanis in collaboration with band member Sari Lightman, Olympia is bubbly and buoyant— fundamentally a dance record, which was the band’s aim all along. Whether it’s the haunting downtempo songs like the miniature "I Don’t Care (I’m a Man)" and album opener "What we Done?" or the addictive electropop of "Painful Like" and "We Become," you can hear that electronic pulse throughout. By being brutally honest with herself, assessing her life and embracing others’ strengths, Katie has created a more complete realisation of her own vision.

Catch Austra at one of their upcoming shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Tickets and more info.

Watch the official video for the first single off the album, “Home.”

Omar’s upcoming album, aptly titled  The Man, will be his first new release in seven years, and the album harkens back to the blend of elements and groove-oriented aesthetic that marked Omar’s first two albums. The first single, “The Man,” for instance kicks off with a funky bass line played on clarinet. Every track is chock full of original arranging and compositional touches which show why Omar is so admired by other musicians, producers, dee jays and music fans who appreciate the cutting edge sound. In anticipation of Omar’s upcoming album The Man comes The Man (Remixes) by Shafiq Husayn, Maddslinky, and Scratch Professor. This digital DJ promo features the single, remixes of the single, and the track "There’s Nothing Like This," featuring Pino Palladino.

DJ PROMO: Jon Hopkins – ‘Immunity’ (Album)

June 4th, 2013

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

Following up the previous DJ promo for Jon Hopkins’ “Open Eye Signal” remixes, this digital DJ promo features the full Immunity album. Having already received 4 star reviews in MOJO, Uncut, The Guardian, and The Sunday Times, Jon Hopkins’ fourth solo album, Immunity is a powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dancefloor-focused music Hopkins has ever made. Immunity is about achieving euphoric states through music, and it is a confident, dramatic record, defined by an acute sense of physicality and place and inspired by the arc of an epic night out. It feels like the hypnotic accompaniment to a journey of creativity, a trip inside Hopkins’ mind, using analog synthesis alongside manipulations of physical, real-world sounds to make dance music that feels as natural and unforced as possible.

Don’t miss Jon at Glasslands in Brooklyn on June 4th – tickets and more info. He returns to New York in August for the PS1 Warm Up Series.

Watch the official video from “Open Eye Signal” and the amazing audio/visual collaboration with Creators Project featuring music from Immunity set to microscopic time-lapse photography of crystal growth and chemical reactions.
