FACT TV and Sound Pellegrino presents Meet Koyote, a documentary about French club music’s best-kept secret.

Although he’s far from a household name, key figures in French clubbing such as Teki Latex, DJ Orgasmic and Manare – all featured in Meet Koyote, along with Detroit’s DJ Nasty and others – revere Koyote for his encyclopaedic knowledge of dance music, his musical approach (a healthy combination of wide-eyed naivety and not giving a fuck what people think of him) and his contribution to the Paris scene as a booker, DJ and producer.

Speaking to FACT, Teki Latex – whose Sound Pellegrino label have just released Koyote’s latest EP, Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got – compares Koyote’s music to Matt Groening using high school bands to play music in The Simpsons, despite it being arranged by professionals. “This EP reminds me of that approach”, he explains, “anti-elitist sounds and instruments serving a very confident release that stretches our personal definitions of House to spy movie scores played by children, characterised with playfulness and radiating the pure joy of creating music.”

“Let Me Tell You What I’ve Got” is out now on Sound Pellegrino.

Thirty-minutes of pure rap bliss from three of sessions held in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and New York. The Rap Monument features white-hot beats coproduced by Hudson Mohawke, Nick Hook and S-Type. This epic beat was then rapped over by the likes of Push T, Action Bronson, Young Thug, Danny Brown, Raekwon, Prodigy and many more. Sit back and enjoy.

“DRNUK” is the ambient new track from Philly producer Louis Futon. The track features vocal snippets from Drake x P Reign’s “DnF” on top of a trap-inspired beat. Be on the lookout for more from Louis as he’s set to release a self-titled EP in January of 2015.

Sporadic yet powerful percussion is the cornerstone of the music from rising LA producer Karman. The 20-year-old’s first release came late last year in the form of a self-released 8-track EP that lead to production credits on recent releases from rappers such as Squadda B and Little Pain.

Karman now focuses attention back on his own original material, this week sharing two new tracks “Screens” and “Eaux.” Through the combined use of nostalgic synth work, languishing vocals and frenetic percussion, Karman distorts the “misery of loneliness in the internet age and gives it rhythmic optimism.”
