Download: Astronomar "Gargoile (Massacooramaan Remix)"

First Listen
Label: Main Course

Earlier this year, Los Angeles producer Astronomar issued his Mutant Club EP, a four-track effort which presented a number of club-ready hybrids in the course of its run. Now, those EP tracks have been handed off to a variety producer's for the forthcoming Mutant Club Remixes EP (out on September 23). Here, we have Fade to Mind affiliate Massacooramaan's contribution to the collection, which finds the Portland-based beatmaker taking on Astronoma's "Gargoile." A hyperactive, constantly evolving production in its original form, Massacooramaan refocuses the tune's sonics into a more brooding effort, one where screeching tones are cut by massive kicks, industrial snares, and a bevy of machine-made percussion. The full Mutant Club Remixes EP lands next week via the Main Course imprint.

Clouds Preps Compilation for Turbo, Shares New Mix

Given the results of Scotland's independence referendum, today seems like an appropriate time for Turbo to introduce a compilation of "hardcore Scottish hooligan techno." Curated by local outfit Clouds, the forthcoming ...I Care Because You Don't reportedly finds the hard-hitting techno duo reaching "beyond the warehouse and into the wild apocalyptic rubble of po-mo UK hardcore," following a 2013 full-length for the label and an appearance earlier this year on respected Glaswegian imprint Soma.

Review: Call Super Suzi Ecto

Pick

Call Super (a.k.a. Joe Seaton) isn't someone who makes things easy. That's not to say that his music is overly difficult or challenging; it's just that in an era where artists are largely expected to share every influence and willingly explain specifically what they're trying to communicate with their music, Seaton is content to leave things purposefully vague.

Download: Brett "Chalon (Bam Spacey's Sad Summer of '89 Mix)"

First Listen

An unhurried, sun-soaked pop track in its original form, Brett's "Chalon" serves as the lead track to the Stateside outfit's self-titled debut LP, which appeared earlier this year via the ever-growing Cascine label (an imprint who also welcomed the likes of Essáy and Lemonade to its roster in 2014). Now in the hands of Malmö, Sweden-based producer Bam Spacey—whose debut LP, 1998, arrives next month via Brooklyn's Ceremony outpost—"Chalon" is reshaped into a more heavenly affair, one led by a melody worthy of the remix's 1989 time stamp and further bathed in gradually evolving layers of airy synths.
