Four Tet at Creators Project in 2011 (more by Ryan Barkan)
NYC producer FaltyDL plans to release a new album, Hardcourage, at some point in the near future, but before that he'll release a single for the track, "Straight & Arrow," on November 13 via Ninja Tune. The single will be backed by remixes by Four Tet, Gold Panda, MikeQ, and Divoli S'vere. Check out the original over at Pitchfork and stream the Four Tet remix below. The psychedelic cover art is below too.
Four Tet will be heading over to the US later this month to play Moogfest on October 27 in Asheville, NC. He'll stop in NYC right before that to DJ a Red Bull Music Academy presented show on October 26 at Autumn Bowl (67 West St) in Brooklyn with a killer lineup of Jamie xx (whose band The xx will be playing the Bronx's Paradise Theater earlier that night) and Floating Points (who we profiled HERE). Speaking of sure-to-be-insane DJ parties happening on October 26, Neon Indian and Chrome Canyon are DJing Cameo that night (tickets are on sale now). Decisions, decisions...
Four Tet released his most recent album, Pink, this past August via his own Text label, which compiled a few of his vinyl only singles that came out over the past year. It's a more subdued album than its predecessor (2010's There Is Love In You) but just as heady and the shining moments we've come to expect from Four Tet continue to show up, just in different ways. Highly recommended listen. You can stream some of its tracks below.
In related news, Dan Snaith (aka Caribou and fka Manitoba) has a release coming out under another moniker, Daphni. That album, titled JIAOLONG (pronounced "jow-long"), comes out October 16 via Merge but can be streamed ahead of its release at Resident Advisor.
A list of all Four Tet dates and song streams, along with the FaltyDL cover art, are below.
While Chicago mainstay DJ Hieroglyphic Being (aka Jamal Moss) is in town, he'll play a late night party at 285 Kent on Friday (8/17) with Maxmillion Dunbar, Antennes, SFV Acid, a DJ set by James Gerard and visuals by Aurora Halal. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
In related news, SFV Acid will play an UNO party one night earlier (8/16) at The Hester with Mykki Blanco, Physical Therapy, Krystal Klear, and a "Special Secret Guest." No promises on who the guest is, but perhaps it will be one of the people in town for Saturday's Warm Up, like past Warm Ups have yielded. Maybe you should go and make your friends envious. The flier for this show is below.

UK producer Floating Points (aka Sam Shepherd) will be heading to North America for a few dates in August. While he's here, he'll hit up NYC for two shows, including Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on August 18 with Jacques Greene, Hieroglyphic Being, and Secret Circuit and another that same night (8/18) for Mister Saturday Night at House of Yes. Tickets for Warm Up are on sale now. Tickets for Mister Saturday Night are $15 before midnight with RSVP and $20 otherwise. More info and advance tix TBA. All Floating Points dates are listed below.
Floating Points' most recent release is the Shadows EP which came out towards the end of 2011. On the EP, he operates in a similar realm to most contemporary downtempo producers pulling from commonly used reference points like deep house and UK bass. But what makes Floating Points stand out in that scene is the heavy use of jazz fusion that he brings into the mix. His beats may not date back too far, but his wandering electric piano playing is heavily in debt to late '60s/early '70s Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock. You can stream clips of the entire Shadows EP below.
