Hyetal is in town this weekend for his previously discussed appearances at Glasslands on Friday (8/9 with Braille (of Sepalcure), Jim-E Stack, and DJ True Panther (tickets) and Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on Saturday (10/10) with his Velour collaborator Julio Bashmore, Detroit techno vets Octave One, and a collaboration from Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy under the name DJ Dodger Stadium (tickets).
DJ Dodger Stadium made this week's Warm Up/FADER Mix, and you download that above, or stream it below.
Meanwhile, Julio Bashmore got to NYC a little earlier in the week to open for fellow Jessie Ware collaborators Disclosure at their Central Park show with TNGHT. At that show, Sam Smith joined Disclosure on stage for "Latch," and he plays his own NYC show TONIGHT (8/8) at Mercury Lounge (sold out). Support at the show comes from Lawrence Rothman, who we also just caught at Glasslands last night (8/7).

Delorean at BV SXSW 2013 party (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
We thought it was weird that Delorean were coming all the way to Philly without stopping in NYC so we're pleased to learn that one day before the Philly show they'll be stopping in Brooklyn for a show at 285 Kent on April 11. The Philly show is with Autre Ne Veut, Doldrums and Jacques Greene, but for the NYC show Delorean will play with Mas Ysa, Van Rivers, and True Panther Sound System. Tickets for that one are on sale now.

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.

Brooklyn producer Slava (not to be confused with Salva), released the Soft Control EP on Ford & Lopatin's Mexican Summer imprint, Software, earlier this year. It's 4 tracks of snap snares, chopped vocals, and thick bass and ends with the orchestral-sounding "Swan." The EP feels right at home on the Software roster and you can stream the entire thing below.
As usual, Slava has a number of local shows, like the one he just played with Laurel Halo and Gatekeeper on Saturday (6/30) (how was that?). His next NYC show is Warm Up at PS1 on July 28 with Sinkane, MJ Cole, DJ Spoko, and Van Rivers. Tickets for that show are available.
After that, he'll play a BPM152 party at Tammany Hall on August 11. The BPM152 parties are a bi-weekly pop-up bass party series, which have been going down in Tammany Hall this summer. The first was on 6/16 with Myrryrs, Cedaa, Mess Kid, and Old Money Knifeshowand Nire, and the second was this past Saturday (6/30) with Gobby, Physical Therapy, and Don Froth. The lineups for the remaining parties (other than the fact that Slava plays on 8/11) have not been announced yet. Stay tuned for more info on those.
