Four Tet at Electric Zoo 2013 (via Piotr Orlov)
Electronic music mastermind Four Tet is currently on an international tour, which just passed through NYC for his set at day 1 (8/30) of Electric Zoo this past weekend (video below), and now that E Zoo is behind us, Four Tet's added a NYC date to his tour. The show happens on September 28 at a TBA Brooklyn venue (it's a "new indoor/outdoor Brooklyn waterfront location") with fellow UK producers James Holden and George FitzGerald. It's presented by Verboten and FIXED DJs JDH & Dave P are also on the bill. Tickets for the show are on sale now.
Verboten are also doing another one of these on October 12 with Solomun, Metro Area (live), David August, and Walker & Royce. The flyer for both, and the list of all Four Tet tour dates, are below.
James Holden, who in addition to releasing music also runs the Border Community label, put out his newest album, The Inheritors, earlier this year. It's one of the year's better IDM releases next to Jon Hopkins, Boards of Canada, µ-Ziq, and others. You can stream the single "Renata" below.
George FitzGerald released a new single, "Thinking Of You," earlier this year via Hotflush, and that can be streamed below too.
All dates are listed, along with all streams and stuff, below...

Du Tonc is the new duo of Matt Van Schie of Australian synth pop band Van She and London producer Mighty Mouse. Since forming less than a year ago, they've released three strong singles, "Darkness," "Surging Memories," and "Rise." Mighty Mouse's nu-disco production and Matt's knack for the same kind of impossibly catchy tunes he does in Van She come together really well, and it results in some serious Delorean/Cut Copy-style summer jams. Matt's voice is also a little reminiscent of modern day Julian Casablancas, so if you liked that song Julian did with Daft Punk, these tracks are recommended for you too.
Du Tonc are currently on a North American tour, and they'll make their NYC debut with a live set at Glasslands this Friday (6/28). It's a FIXED party that also includes Mighty Mouse doing an opening set, and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P are on the bill too. All tour dates are listed below.
In addition to doing Du Tonc together, Matt Van Schie and Mighty Mouse are also launching a new label this month, Nightfilm. To celebrate the launch of that label, Mighty Mouse released his own new single, "Feel Alright." Stream that track, along with all three Du Tonc tracks, and their list of tour dates, below...

Australian production duo Flight Facilities (aka Hugo & Jimmy) have been releasing singles with different guest lead vocalists for the past few years. In 2010, they surfaced with "Crave You," a Bird and the Bee-esque indie pop tune with vocals from Giselle Rosselli, followed by 2011's disco-y "Foreign Language" with vocals from Jess Higgs. Then last year saw two more tracks from the band, the poppy "With You" with vocals from Grovesnor, and the darker, expansive cut, "Clair De Lune," which features vocals from Christine Hoberg (that one made a fan out of My Morning Jacket's Tom Blankenship). You can watch the videos for all four singles below.
The duo are on a North American tour now which passes through NYC this week for a show at Le Poisson Rouge on Wednesday (3/27) with Baio (of Vampire Weekend) and Friendly Greg, and again for a FIXED/Verboten party on Saturday (3/30) at SRB Brooklyn (177 2nd Ave) with Tensnake, Light Year and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P on the boards.

Chicago footwork producer DJ Rashad released the excellent TEKLIFE Vol. 1: Welcome to the Chi album earlier this year, and played a Brooklyn show at 285 Kent soon after with Total Freedom and J-Cush. All three of those artists will be returning this weekend for another show at 285 Kent on Sunday (9/23) with Visionist and a "surprise special guest." No word on who the guest is, but the show is the official after party for the Gang Gang Dance and Prince Rama show happening at 285 Kent earlier that night (the third of three GGD shows in NYC this weekend). Admission for this all ages party is $5 before 1 AM and $10 after.
As for LA producer Total Freedom (aka Ashland Mines), who opened on tour for Gang Gang Dance last year, he'll be landing in Brooklyn a bit earlier for a warehouse party at 110 Troutman TONIGHT (9/21) with $hayne and Rizzla. The flier for tonight's show is below.
Meanwhile, J-Cush will also be at 285 Kent on Saturday (9/22) for the previously mentioned Sasha Go Hard show. That bill also includes DJ Manny, Cedaa, and Durban. $5 at the door before 1 AM. That will be Sasha's second NYC show of this week, having played Santos with LE1F last night (9/20). How was that show? Sasha loved it.

Yacht at South Street Seaport, Aug 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)
Yacht will play what promises to be a wild night at the Beekman Beer Garden on August 30. (Hopefully not this kind of wild.) The duo will headline what's being called Full Moon (yes it's a full moon that night), a party that also features Modular's Sneaky Soundsystem, Gigamesh, Tesla Boy, and FIXED DJs JDH & Dave P. There will also be "dazzling visuals" and "fire dancers." That sounds exciting. Could be a fun way ring out the summer. Tickets for that show are on sale now, and the flyer is below.
In addition to the Full Moon party, Yacht will keep themselves busy in August with a few festival dates as well as a few shows opening for Hot Chip in the Pacific Northwest. All Yacht tour dates are listed below.

DOWNLOAD: Le1f - Dark York (ZIP)
Vancouver's Blood Diamonds (aka Michael Diamond aka Mike Tucker), who we profiled when he came to NYC for a Glasslands show in August of last year, will return to the Brooklyn venue almost exactly a year later for a show on August 3. The show is with NYC rapper Le1f. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Blood Diamonds has since signed to 4AD, who will release his Phone Sex 12" on July 24. You can stream the title track from that maxi single, which features Grimes, below. It differs from his earlier tropi-pop singles and is dominated heavily by Grimes' vocals, but it's a great listen and the new 12" is one to look forward to.
Le1f (aka Khalif Diouf), who is also on the Glasslands show, released the Dark York mixtape earlier this year on Das Racist's Greedhead label. Le1f identifies on facebook as "GAYNGSTA RAP" and was featured in a recent Pitchfork article, "We Invented Swag: NYC's Queer Rap," so Le1f is definitely joining the increasing number of openly gay rappers, but as he points out in the Pitchfork article, he doesn't want to "make gay NYC rap 'a thing.'" He continued saying, "The whole 'room for one' mentality is homophobic... if the world is ready for a gay rapper, then they're ready for multiple gay rappers. If we were straight, no one would be comparing us."
Le1f's Dark York mixtape features a number of solid producers, namely Nguzunguzu (whose new Warm Pulse EP is out this week) and Morri$, and also includes a handful of tracks that Le1f produced himself. Thanks to those producers, the mixtape is mostly made up of dark, murky beats and Le1f sounds like the Danny Brown from hell with a far more subdued delivery than Danny's rambunctious shout, but one that's equally swagged out. You can download the entire EP for free above or stream it below.
Le1f will also play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 this summer on July 21 with Matthew Dear (DJ), Sepalcure MikeQ (who plays a RINSED party tonight (7/6) at the loft at 70 North 6th St. [above Public Assembly]), and JDH & Dave P. Tickets for that show are available.
Warm Up begins this weekend (7/7) with sets from Todd Terry, Light Asylum, Nguzunguzu, Trust, and Arca ft. HBA (tickets). Ahead of this week's show, Arca made a FADER/MoMA PS1 mix which you can stream below.
Song streams are below.
Chromatics in Chicago in January (more by Zach Pollack)
A while back, we mentioned that Chromatics were scheduled to play a FIXED x Dog and Pony show at Dekalb Market on July 22 with Paul Raffaele and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P. It looks like that show has been moved to Music Hall of Williamsburg. Everything else is the same (date, lineup, etc), just a new location. Tickets for the MHOW show go on sale today (6/28) at noon.
We're not fully sure about the other remaining shows that were scheduled to happen in Dekalb Market this summer, but it looks like the Blondes show happened as planned earlier this month. Did you make it out to that one? How'd it go?
Chromatics' MHOW show happens two days after Chromatics open for Hot Chip at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show are still available. Hot Chip's Prospect Park show (7/18) with Gang Gang Dance is sold out.
In related news, the Drive soundtrack, which Chromatics contributed to, is being supported on tour this summer with sets from College, Anoraak, and Electric Youth. As mentioned, that tour comes to NYC for a show on July 20 at MHOW. Tickets for that show are still available.
A list of all Chromatics tour dates and a video are below...
Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) will be going on a short North American tour this summer which brings them to NYC for three shows in July. The first is the duo's previously discussed appearance at Warm Up on July 21 at MoMA PS1 with Matthew Dear (DJ), Le1f, MikeQ, JDH & Dave P, and Miguel. Then they'll play a Brooklyn show that same night (7/21) at 285 Kent and Deep Space on July 23.
Sepalcure followed their great self-titled LP with a new EP this past April, called Eternally Yrs. In addition to "Eternally Yrs," which appeared on their LP, and remixes of two other LP tracks, the EP also included a new track, "Don't Cry," which you can stream below, along with a list of all dates.
Matthew Dear at Moogfest 2011 (more by Diana Wong)
Earlier this year we mentioned that Matthew Dear had released the Headcage EP and would follow that with a full length called Beams. Matthew just revealed more details on that full length, including the release date (August 28 via Ghostly), cover art and tracklist, which are both below. In addition to including the track, "Headcage," Beams will also feature "Her Fantasy," which is being released as a single on June 5 and can be streamed below.
Matthew Dear is part of the just announced Warm Up 2012 lineup, which goes down at MoMA PS1 this summer. Matthew DJs on July 21, along with sets by Sepalcure, Le1f, MikeQ, JDH & Dave P, and a performance by Miguel. He's also got a headlining show at Webster Hall on November 17 coming up. Tickets for that show are still available.
Updated dates listed below, along with the cover art, tracklist, and song stream...
