Jonas Reinhardt (the project of Jesse Reiner), who released the Mask of the Maker album earlier this year via Not Not Fun, is returning with an experimental sci-fi film, Ganymede, on February 11. Jesse made the film with multiple Brooklyn-based filmmakers including Antonia Kuo, Josh Lewis, Kenneth Zoran Curwood, Shona Masarin, Ben Mosca, and Lily Jue Sheng, and it will be screened at select US theaters and at his live shows. In Jesse's words, "It imagines sub-aquatic life on the distant moon of Ganymede beneath a sky of ice." The trailer for the film premieres in this post, and you can watch that below. A limited edition of the DVD and its soundtrack can be pre-ordered now.
He has a couple shows scheduled at the moment, including one in Boston this month and another in Brooklyn on January 21 at Union Pool with Prince Rupert's Drops and Hairy Sands. Admission for that show is $8 at the door. Plus, the film will screen in NYC on February 20 at Spectacle in Williamsburg (8 and 10 PM).

DOWNLOAD: Hervé - "Gold" (feat. Maria Minerva) (MP3)
Lo-fi pop artist Maria Minerva teamed up with LA dance four-piece Pharaohs for the track, "Miraculous Feet," off Pharaohs' debut full length, Replicant Moods, which is due out on April 20 via 100% Silk. Maria takes lead vocals which gives the track an overall feel more similar to her music than Pharaohs', but Pharaohs' Chic-style bassline and post-punk drums make the song beefier and dancier than most of Maria's work. You can stream that track below.
As mentioned, Maria Minerva and Pharaohs are teaming up for a NYC show this Saturday (3/2) at 285 Kent with Octo Octa and Magic Touch (8 PM doors, $10 admission), but Pharaohs will be landing in NYC even sooner to play Cameo on Thursday (2/28) with Jonas Reinhardt, SHAMS, and a DJ set from Suzanne Kraft. Advance tickets for the Cameo show are on sale now. Both Maria Minerva and Pharaohs will also be in Austin this March for SXSW.
Maria Minerva also has a new release of her own on the way; the Bless EP, which will be out on April 2 via Not Not Fun. The EP's first single, "Black Magick," continues in the vein of her Will Happiness Find Me? album, and you can watch the video for that track below. Maria will play a release show for that EP in NYC on April 18 at Cameo Gallery with Butterclock (more on her in a minute). Tickets for that show are on sale now.
In addition to her own EP and collaborating with Pharaohs, Maria also contributed vocals to "Gold," the new single off UK producer Hervé (aka Joshua Harvey)'s new album, The Art of Disappearing, which comes out on March 4 via Cheap Thrills. Maria's airy vocals and Hervé's downtempo rhythms work great together and you can hear the collaboration by downloading the track above or watching its video, below. That album also features a killer collaboration with Austra (who are playing BrooklynVegan SXSW shows) on the track "Save Me," which you can stream below as well. Other collaborators on the album are Niki & the Dove and Seasfire.
As mentioned above, support at Maria Minerva's EP release from comes from oOoOO collaborator Butterclock (aka Laura Clock), who released her debut EP, First Prom, earlier this month. A limited CD pressing of the EP is available at the Fantasy Music webstore. Butterclock also has some European shows coming up, which are listed below, and more US dates will be announced soon. The video for "Don't" off her EP is below.

NYC producer Ital (aka Daniel Martin-McCormick, who was also in Black Eyes, Mi Ami, and recorded as Sex Worker) always tends to be up to something, and he's got a handful of shows scheduled for this month and the coming months after that. I recently wrote about him for BV Chicago and said:
If you've never seen Ital live and are wondering if he's "just another knob turner," I caught him on his 2012 tour with Laurel Halo and can assure that it's a great time. His music in Ital may lean a bit on the calmer side recorded, but he's a party-starter at heart and he goes nuts behind the boards at his shows.His upcoming dates include a live set in NYC TONIGHT (2/15) at Body Actualized Center (143 Troutman St.) with Jonas Reinhardt, Aurora, (Mutual Dreaming) and Hauser/Quaid with DJ sets by Jan Woo and Terekke. Doors are at 10 PM and admission is $10. Then on Saturday (2/16) at 285 Kent he'll DJ a Mutual Dreaming party with Todd Sines.
In March, Ital is set to tour Asia with Magic Touch, and upon returning home he'll play another NYC show at 285 Kent on March 30 with Container, Co La, and PVRE MATRIX. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Pitchfork recently filmed a Co La show at 285 Kent, where he played material off of his upcoming album (which he says is due out in May) and was interviewed. That video and a list of all currently known Ital dates below...

DOWNLOAD: Jonas Reinhardt - "Auto Grift" (MP3)
As mentioned, Brooklyn's Jonas Reinhardt (the project of Jesse Reiner) will be releasing a new EP, Foam Fangs on July 24 via 100% Silk. It was recorded with Damon Palermo (Mi Ami/Magic Touch) at The Equinoxe earlier this year and recorded/mixed by Jesse. When we first mentioned the EP, all we had heard was a remix of the title track that was posted to soundcloud a year ago, but we've now got the first taste of the EP with the track "Auto Grift." Tou can download that track above or stream below. Sounding like some mix between a Trent Reznor score and fluttery Kraftwerk synths, it'd be a great soundtrack to a late night drive or pounding through the PA at a dimly lit club.
You can catch Jonas Reinhardt live at the previously discussed Brooklyn show at Glasslands on July 7 with Octo Octa and Cuticle. Tickets for that show are available. It's his only NYC date scheduled at the moment, but more to come. Some dates to support the new EP over in California are in the works as well.
The "Auto Grift" stream and EP tracklist are below...
DOWNLOAD: Octo Octa - "Deep Hurt" (MP3)
Octo Octa - 'Oh Love'
100% Silk is teaming up with Popgun to present a show in Brooklyn, which happens on July 7 at Glasslands with sets from three 100% Silk artists: Octo Octa, Jonas Reinhardt, and Cuticle. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Brooklyn's Octo Octa (aka Michael Morrison) released the Oh Love EP earlier this month on 100% Silk. You can grab an MP3 of the ghostly deep house cut, "Deep Hurt," at the top of this post. Since then, he dropped an exclusive download of a non-EP track for Pulse Radio, which you can download here and made a mix with tracks by Mike Simonetti, Lindstrom, Win Win, Chemical Brothers, and more which you can listen to here.
Brooklyn's Jonas Reinhardt are set to release a new EP on 100% Silk called Foam Fangs. All we know is that it's
"out soon" (out July 24) and there's a remix of a Jonas Reinhardt track called "Foam Fangs" which surfaced on soundcloud about a year ago. You can stream that remix below. Jonas Reinhardt also plan to release a collaborative two-track album with Abyss of Fathomless Light on July 10 via VCO Cassettes.
Cuticle's most recent release is the Mother Rhythm Earth Memory LP which came out 100% Silk's parent label Not Not Fun (following an EP the trio released on 100% Silk) this past February. You can check out an album sampler for Mother Rhythm Earth Memory below.

DOWNLOAD: Martyn - "Viper" (MP3)
Martyn began DJ and promoting d&b nights in Holland as far back as 1996, but it was as recent as three years ago that his production began to be recognised. He had releases on Marcus Intalex's Revolv:R, both d&b and dubstep-- fitting since Marcus Intalex released one of the first deep house inspired dubstep-esque singles "Taking Over Me" as far back as 2000. But while Martyn bought into early Wookie material, it wasn't until Kode9's "Sine of the Dub" that Martyn took notice of dubstep. "I heard that record and it fitted right into some of the music I was hunting down at that time such as the reggae/techno from Berlin like Rhythm & Sound, Main Street and Basic Channel," he explains. [Pitchfork]Martyn released his second LP, Ghost People, last month via FlyLo's Brainfeeder label. The album is full of hollow dubstep beats in the vein of Kode9, who is mentioned above as one of Martyn's influences, and features guest vocals on the first track by Spaceape, who collaborated with Kode9 in 2006 for the pioneering Memories of the Future album, and again earlier this year on the duo's followup, Black Sun. But what really makes Ghost People a memorable listen is the way he works in his house influences. He can come out sounding like a better version of Deadmau5's early material (before he began taking a much frattier direction). The songs layer four-on-the-floor beats with more off-kilter ones and almost always use percussion in the forefront of the song, with a sparse melody in the background. The one exception is the album's especially house-y closing track, "We Are You In The Future," which opens with a catchy bouncing synth line that gets built off for almost 9 minutes, and is by far the longest track on the album. The album track "Viper" is available for download above.
Martyn's only got one North American date coming up and its The FIXED Holiday Bash at Public Assembly on December 16 with Jonas Reinhardt (live), Andrew "The Wiz" Potter, Ulysses, JDH & Dave P, and a back room hosted by Throne of Blood. Tickets for the show are on sale now.

DOWNLOAD: Washed Out - Eyes Be Closed (Steve Moore Galaxy-Class Remix) (MP3)
Steve Moore (of Zombi/Titan) (not to be confused with Zomby) will team with Jesse Reiner (Jonas Reinhardt) for a "live electronic improv set" at Silent Barn TONIGHT (7/15). The duo will be joined by support from Long Distance Poison, Lussuria, ODO (Mark Dwinell of Forma), Andy & Zeus. DJ Jah Fe Ryan (Excepter) is on the 1s and 2s. $7 will get you into the all ages event.
Steve Moore, who also plays PS1's Warm Up on August 6th, has been steadily producing remixes of bands like Washed Out, Voivod, and Melvins. Check out those impressive remixes, some of which he did under his alter-ego Lovelock, below. There are two different remixes he did of Washed Out song "Eyes Be Closed", one of which you can also download above.
Washed Out headlined Bowery Ballroom the other night.
Steve Moore's band Zombi released the awesome Escape Velocity earlier this year on Relapse Records. Highly recommended.

DOWNLOAD: Trans Am - Apparent Horizon (MP3)
Thrill Jockey: You've spoken before about a desire to transcend music. Do you think this album accomplishes that?Trans Am will put out their ninth (!) LP, Thing, on April 20th, and you can hear a tight, vocoder-riffing rack from it above.
Trans Am: Absolutely. This album isn't about music at all. It's about being prepared mentally and physically. It's about training 8 hours a day for the past two years. You know, too many people today are results-oriented. We want to win as much as anyone, but we're not going to abandon our system now. That's what got us where we are and we're not going to throw everything away and just play for music's sake.
The band is currently on tour with Portland noise-rock band Nice Nice and Jonas Reinhardt (a group not a person). They play two NYC shows. The first is at Santos this Saturday (4/17). Tickets are still on sale.
Their other NYC show, on Sunday (4/18), was relocated from Market Hotel to the Knitting Factory. Oneida (who headlined the venue in March and who play the Joshua Light Show fest this May) is also on the bill. Tickets are on sale.
