RIP Andrew Weatherall.
RIP Andrew Weatherall.
UK producer/dj Jamie Paton is one half of Cage & Aviary but also makes music under his own name, he’s often referred to in the same circles as Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J. Fairplay and his version of electronic dance music is described as “leftfield techno” or “slowmotion house” and is filled with a suggestive, repetetive sound.
“”Disk Memories” is barren electronic music for the Brexit generation. Paton has established a dystopic electronic sound that aims straight at your frontal lobe, burns in your bones, and projects a lost Europe’s anxiety on the grey London skies. The music breathes of the cold 1980’s, a time of crisis in England’s history and a vibe to be recognize in today’s society: right-wing winds once again blows hard over the British Isles and Jamie Paton’s music catches the insecurity the wind carries with it.”
Coming straight out of Reims in France, KCPK is a crossgenre trio that have done collaborations with the likes of Brodinski, Yuksek and The Shoes and the group have also been the main force behind the PANIK parties, curating lineups with artists as diverse as Laurent Garnier, Groove Armada, Amon Tobin, and Andrew Weatherall.
On their new single “Who Wants It” they’ve worked with Philly rapper STS (well known from his work with beat wizard RJD2) for a track that blends electro, hip hop and pop, the remix premiere that we laid our mitts on comes from London/Paris based duo Postaal who in turn churns out a stomper of a remix with a pianohouse sounding lead that lifts it into one uplifting and epic anthem.
In spite of their recurring problems with dandruff, huge accolades are due to Cut Copy, as their recent Zonoscope album was nominated for a Best Dance/Electronica Album Grammy which they could easily scoop one up.
To celebrate this achievement, Modular are giving away veteran of the scene Andrew Weatherall’s version of “Sun God”, which feels like you’re drifting through the cosmos on a narwhal – epic, blissed out dance pop for this universe and any other ones out there.

“Andrew Weatherall takes us on a deep and moody journey through his vast record collection with dusted off electronica and ambient tracks, sitting alongside contemporary goth from Zola Jesus, lo-fi angst from Perfume Genius and finished off with Johanna Billing’s cover of Arthur Russellâ€™s This Is How We Walk On The Moon. A perfect ‘headphones’ mix; this is in Mr Weatherall’s own words, ‘all killer no filler’ and we couldnâ€™t agree more. Sit back and enjoy.”
Tracklist after the jump.
Finnish duo Le Corps Mince de Francoise have signed to Heavenly Recordings and their new single “Gandhi” will be released on November 29th. Newly formed French/Finnish duo Square Mode did this sweet remix (grab the Andrew Weatherall one over at RCRD LBL)
