As part of Dazed Digital’s new summer US project “States of Independence” they’ve invited their favorite 30 American curators, magazines, creatives and institutions to takeover Dazed for a day.

Premier record label Fade to Mind staged a mid-week takeover at Dazed Digital yesterday where the members of the unlocked their vault and shared 5 exclusive edits now available for free download.

Kingdom pieces together Fatima Al Qadiri with Gangsta Boo, Prince William flips Miley Cyrus “Adore You”, MA takes on r’n’b singstress Kelela, Massacooramaan goes head to head with Krayzie Bone while Rizzla mixes Lucid with DJ Dior.

New mix by Fade To Mind label boss Prince William is bursting at the seams with things we love. First up, you’ve got a host of great new exclusive tracks from MikeQ, Bok Bok, and a gigantic forthcoming remix of L-Vis 1990′s new single from some unknown combination of producers that form the “Night Slugs Allstars”.

But even more formidable than the tracklisting is the way that everything in this mix blends together – putting Carl Craig and MikeQ back-to-back has never sounded so complimentary, especially with the long blends Prince employs that makes everything mesh together in hazy, brilliant nightclub ecstasy. Dim the lights and play it out from start to finish.

NGUZUNGUZU have never failed to deliver productions that massively shift the way we conceive of dance music, so it makes sense that their release on Prince William and Kingdom’s collaborative record label Fade To Mind.

Billed as “a record label and a movement, a series of club nights and cooperative projects in music, visual art, video, and apparel”, Fade To Mind is off to a stellar start with the NGUZUNGUZU created “Timesup” EP – full of intricately crafted pieces of dance music.

“Water Bass Power” sounds like someone sharpening daggers on a waterfall – unstoppably fluid, movement based dance music with a serious kick to it, and Kingdom’s laid back but anxiety laden R&B recut of the shuffling, “Timesup”, a tune about having to call people back, turned off phones, and an underlying unsettled vibe about one’s relationship. With production like this, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Fade To Mind gang were responsible for 98% of computer hacking that’s going on these days – futuristic, global club virus music going full speed ahead.

Buy the Timesup EP here, with remixes by Total Freedom and Kingdom, as well as three mind eclipsing original tracks by the NGUZUS.

You can also download a mix full of exclusives from Rizzla, Dubbel Dutch, AraabMuzik and more below.
