Abstract rapper Beans (who is no longer in Anti-Pop Consortium) and hip hop producer Mux Mool have teamed up as the collaborative project Knifefight, who will release their self titled EP next week (9/3) via Anticon. Cities Aviv, Kool AD, and Sub Con also contribute to the EP. From listening to its single, "Feel Me," it's a collaboration that sounds as good in real life as it does on paper. That track makes its premiere in this post, and can be streamed, along with the artwork and tracklist, below.
Beans will be celebrating the release of the new EP at Glasslands (9/3) on the day of its release with Pegasus Warning, Mykki Blanco collaborator Gobby, CX Kidtronik and The Juggs. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Sepalcure at LPR - 12/30/12 (via Heathered Pearls)
Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) just played a NYC show at Le Poisson Rouge (pictured above) right before 2012 wrapped up (12/30) after their tour with Shlohmo came to a close. Machinedrum stuck around for one more NYC show last week before heading over to Europe, but Braille is still around and will play a NYC show this Friday (1/11) at Cameo with Archie Pelago, Contakt, Nooka Jones, and Enoe. Admission for that show is $8 at the door or $5 with RSVP.
The show is a release party for Cambio, the compilation album by Percussion Lab which features songs by Sepalcure, Braille, Machinedrum, Shigeto, Daedelus (who's touring soon), Mux Mool, and more. You can stream that compilation in its entirety, along with a few other Braille tracks, below.
UPDATE: Venus X is not playing the Santos show. She tweeted, "PLEASE RT I WILL NOT BE HEADLINING SANTOS THIS FRIDAY. NYC GOTTA WAIT A LITTLE BIT LONGER FOR ME SORRY KIDDOS."

Back in May, drill & bass master Squarepusher announced a North American tour which included a TBA NYC show set to happen on October 30. Well it turns out the NYC show will actually be on November 1 and it happens at Terminal 5 with a great list of openers; Bonobo (DJ), Holy Fuck, and Mount Kimbie. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/29) at noon with an AmEx presale starting today (6/27) at noon. All Squarepusher dates are listed below.
Squarepusher released his new album, Ufabulum, in May and it's a pretty solid one. It opens with "4001," which is just about the only song that sounds like classic Squarepusher, and is then followed by, "Unreal Square," which brings in a bit of brostep bass wobble. The rest of the album sees Squarepusher diving into nutty jazz fusion and unstoppable breakbeats. You can stream three of its tracks below.
Speaking of Mount Kimbie, they've signed to Warp, the label which Squarepusher also calls home, and currently at work on their second album which will be released on the label. The Terminal 5 show appears to be their only announced North American date at the moment.
Holy Fuck and Bonobo will be in NY even sooner for Camp Bisco, which goes down from July 12-14 at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY. They'll be joining a lineup which includes Tycho, Simian Mobile Disco, Skrillex, Amon Tobin ISAM, Big Boi, Crystal Castles, Yacht, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Shigeto, FaltyDL, Thundercat, and more. Tickets for the festival are still available. The full lineup is listed below.
In related news, You can also catch Holy Fuck frontman Brian Borcherdt in NYC right after Bisco with his new project, Dusted, who play Glasslands on July 15. Tickets for that show are still available.

Africa Hitech, the moniker under which Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek record together, released their debut full length 93 Million Miles this past May on Warp. Considering both members have been making forward-thinking electronic music since the '90s, it makes sense that when they come together, they're able to create a genuine formula of old school UK garage and dubstep. Unlike some of the other artists we've seen reach back to the genre's roots, like Mount Kimbie and Zomby, Africa Hitech's material on 93 Million Miles begs to be blasted at late-night parties and clubs, yet still without the superficial excess of guys like Skrillex and Bassnectar. Check out an album sampler and the video for "Out In The Streets" below, and pick up the album from the Warp webstore.
Africa Hitech just finished up a European tour and will play NYC on November 10 at Le Poisson Rouge with Sepalcure and Mux Mool, who plays with Pictureplane tonight (10/11) and also has CMJ shows coming up. Tickets for the LPR show are on sale now. More dates TBA.
Mark Pritchard is also one of the contributors to the Radiohead remix album, TKOL RMX 1234567, which you can stream HERE. The release party for the album is streaming NOW on Radiohead's website and Boiler Room's website. You can also stream Mark's take on "Bloom" below.

Pictureplane @ PS1 over the summer (more by Erez Avissar)
Pictureplane heads out on the Check Yo Ponytail tour with Spank Rock, Big Freedia, The Death Set, and Franki Chan later this month (it hits Brooklyn Bowl), but first you can check yo Pictureplane at a free show at Santos Partyhouse tonight (10/11) with Mux Mool (DJ set), Beacon, and DJ Todd Pendu. The occasion? "Videogame arts and culture company Kill Screen is partnering with Capcom to launch the first ever Fright Club based on their zombie titles such as Dead Rising 2 Off the Record, Resident Evil : Operation Raccoon City, and Resident Evil Revelations." Sailor Jerry, another sponsor, will also be providing drink specials. Sounds like fun. One problem: you need to RSVP to enter and RSVP is now closed. Another problem: even if you RSVP'd, it's first come, first served. We can help with both problems, as we have five guaranteed-entry RSVP-list-spots to give away to this show. All tour dates, the flyer, and contest details, below...
The masked UK Producer SBTRKT (pronounced 'subtract') is scheduled to play Camp Bisco (7/7) and a PS1 Warm Up event on July 9 with Four Tet, FaltyDL, Matthewdavid, and others. You don't need to head upstate or stand in the sun to see him though because he's also scheduled a Brooklyn show at Glasslands on July 6 with Shigeto and Mux Mool. Exactly what formation SBTRKT will take at the Brooklyn show (DJ, full band, some mix of both, etc) is still TBD, but Glasslands tickets are on sale now. Camp Bisco will be a DJ set and PS1 will be "live set w/guest vocalist". What does "live" look like? It looks like THIS.
