Egyptrixx - 'A/B Til Infinity'
Toronto electronic musician Egyptrixx released his new album, A/B Til Infinity, last month (11/26) via Night Slugs, and it can be streamed in all its atmospheric and space-age synthy glory on RDIO. He'll celebrate that album when he makes the NYC debut of his A/V show (but not his NYC debut in general) at Glasslands on January 3. Sinden is co-headliner with Judge Wise (Brooklyn Bass) opening, and tickets are on sale now.
Another notable electronic show at Glasslands is jazzy UK producer Floating Points' return to NYC when he plays the venue on January 17 with Phil South and Love on the Run. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Ann Arbor beatmaker Shigeto (aka Zach Saginaw) is set to release his new album, No Better Time Than Now, on August 20 via Ghostly. Album single "Detroit Part 1," is Shigeto's typical nu-jazz-meets-hip-hop style, but the other cut he's released, "Ringleader," is new ground for him. Sparkling and multi-layered, the track that feels fuller and more beautiful than most of his work to date. You can check out "Detroit Part 1" below and listen to "Ringleader" over at NPR. The artwork and tracklist are below too.
In support of the new album, Shigeto will be heading out on a co-headlining tour with Ghostly labelmates Beacon. Another Ghostly artist, Heathered Pearls (who plays a collaborative set with Dirty Beaches in NYC soon) will be joining them as a support act for the first North American leg, which includes a NYC show happening on August 31 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are on AmEx presale now and general on-sale begins Friday (6/21) at noon.
All tour dates are listed, along with the tour flyer, album artwork, trackist, and that song stream, below...
As mentioned, UK producer Bonobo is releasing his new album, North Borders, on April 1 via Ninja Tune and supporting it with a tour. That tour comes to NYC for a previously mentioned show at Webster Hall on April 12. When we heard that show sold out we admit to being a little surprised, but apparently he's way bigger than we thought, because he'll be back in NYC this fall for a show at Terminal 5 on October 12. Tickets for the new show go on sale Friday, March 29 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (3/27) at noon. No word on openers for that one yet but Shigeto and Nickodemus open at Webster Hall.
While Bonobo's in NYC for the Webster Hall show, he also DJs a party at Public Assembly (4/12) later that night with Nickodemus and Wiseacre. Tickets for that are still available.
Updated dates are listed, along with the video for North Borders single, "Cirrus," below.

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.

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.

DOWNLOAD: Shigeto + Exray's - "Yellow Light" (Remix) (MP3)
San Francisco synth poppers Exray's released their new album, Trust A Robot, today (6/26) via Howells Transmitter, and you can stream the entire thing below along with the video for album track, "Ancient Thing." Another of those tracks, "Yellow Light," was just given remix treatment by Shigeto, who really turns the track around, adding murkier bass, clickier snares, and toying with the vocals to a point where they hardly resemble the original. It's a pretty great remix, and you can grab an MP3 of it at the top of this post.
Shigeto is also set to release the Huron River Drive EP later this summer on Ghostly. The track of the same name appeared on Lineage, which was released earlier this year. You can stream that track below. As mentioned, Shigeto has upcoming shows this summer including some support dates for Gold Panda, one of which is in NYC on August 2 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show are still available.

Kingdom has a few dates scheduled this month including the Prefix Northside Showcase at 285 Kent on June 16 where he'll co-headline with Shlohmo and be supported by Hot Sugar, Archie Pelago, and Xaphoon Jones (DJ). Tickets for that show are on sale now. The flier for the show is below.
Shlohmo also plays Warm Up at PS1 on August 11 with Evian Christ, Howse, Photek, and Autre Ne Veut.
And since I can't seem to mention Shlohmo without mentioning Shigeto, now seems like a good time to mention that the Brooklyn producer has been added as an opener to Clark's LPR show on Sunday (6/10) (tickets) and Gold Panda's Bowery Ballroom show on 8/2 (tickets).
All tour dates are listed below, along with some videos and that flier...
Shigeto (who we've previously mentoioned HERE, HERE and HERE) has a few UK shows scheduled this month, and upon returning home to Brooklyn, he'll play a live show on May 26 at Glasslands with DJ sets by Shlohmo and Braille. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Speaking of NYC producer RL Grime, he just released his first EP, Grapes, which you can stream/purchase on bandcamp. It features remixes from Shlohmo and LOL Boys, who share the stage with him at Studio tomorrow, in addition to remixes by Salva and Groundislava.

Hilly Eye at Bowery Ballroom in 2011 (more by Devan Council)
Hilly Eye (aka Amy Klein formerly of Titus Andronicus and Catherine Tung) will release their first 7" on Don Giovanni Records this spring and will follow that with a full length, due out on the label this summer.
They've got two local shows coming up, including one on Thursday (2/23) at Cake Shop with Quiet Loudly, Magnetic Island, and Passenger Peru, and another on March 11 at Public Assemly with Shigeto, Gross Relations, Hard Nips, Desert Sharks, and more. The show is part of Sunrise Fest, a memorial/benefit festival for the one year anniversary of the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan last year (3/11/11).

DOWNLOAD: xxxy - "Think Twice" (MP3)
xxxy (aka Rupert Taylor) has a few European dates scheduled this month, and he just announced a NYC show which will happen on March 8 at Glasslands with fellow UK producer Slugabed. Tickets are on sale now for what appears to be his only currently announced North American date at the moment.
xxxy has been planning the release of an EP on Well Rounded Records. There's not too much info on the EP at this point but xxxy put out two tracks towards the end of last year that appear to be on it. "Everything," which he cut from a mix and threw up on his soundcloud, is filled with rolling beats and cut up vocals, similar to his 2011 single. Mixmag also posted a breakbeat driven cut a few months back called "Think Twice." Stream both tracks below and download the latter above.
We recently discussed a couple similar electronic shows also taking place at Glasslands, one of which was Shigeto who played the venue on Friday night and since tweeted, "Goodness. Gracious. Thank you all who came to glasslands tonight. It just gets better every time. So grateful." C-HU$TLE wrote that "SHIGETO had glasslands crackin' like a foolio tonight. SICK show." What did you think? Shigeto plays again in Princeton tomorrow (1/17) with Madlib who plays Brooklyn one day later.

Friends of Friends labelmates and fellow LA-ians Salva and Shlohmo are teaming up for a European tour this February, but before they head overseas, they'll stop in NYC for a show at Glasslands on January 28 with a DJ set by CREEP, who also DJS Cameo on Friday (1/13) with School of Seven Bells (DJ) and Rewards (DJ). Tickets for the Glasslands show are on sale now.
Salva released his most recent LP, Complex Housing, last year (buy it at eMusic), packed with bass, up-shifted vocals, and a glitchy LA hip hop feel. Grab the album's single, "Wake Ups," above, and stream it below. He also just made a mix for FADER which you can download HERE.
Shlohmo also released an LP last year titled Bad Vibes, which you can also buy at eMusic, and he's following it with the Vacation EP, due out February 7 via Friends of Friends. Shlohmo opts for a more downtempo feel than Salva, and the lead track off Vacation, "wen uuu," which you can stream below, is an excellent example of that. The track is similar to other recent Burial disciples, with the ambient watery feel of Balam Acab and the rhythmic play of Mount Kimbie. A remix EP will be released on March 1 featuring remixes from Salva, Nicolas Jaar (who plays MHOW in February), and more TBA. Vaction album art below.
Speaking of electronic shows at Glasslands by artists whose names begin with "S" ("sh" even), Shigeto will play the Brooklyn venue on Saturday (1/14) with Krystal Klear and Nooka Jones. Tickets are on sale now. He's also got a new release on the way, titled Lineage, coming out January 31 via Ghostly. He just released a second track from it, "Huron River Drive," a jazzy passage of clap snares and keyboard noodling. Download that and the equally vibe-y title track above, and stream both below. The album art and tracklist are also below.
The Glasslands show is one of few currently scheduled dates for Shigeto, including one at Princeton, NJ's Terrace Club three days later (1/17) with Dabrye and Madlib, who plays MHOW one day later (1/18) with JRocc and Freddie Gibbs.
All dates, streams, and more 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.
His self titled debut LP comes out June 27 in the UK and June 28 in the US via XL's Young Turks imprint, and it's streaming now on Hype Machine. We posted the track "Wildfire" (feat. Little Dragon) earlier this month, which you can grab here. Drake has since remixed the track and contributed some of his own vocals to it. Check that out, along with album tracklist and all tour dates, below...
