CUT COPY is giving away a blistering new remix of “Take Me Over” by Thee Loving Hands aka Tim Goldsworthy – DFA co-founder and producer of albums by The Rapture, Hercules & The Love Affair and of course Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours. It’s an epic 10 minute long track that starts subtly enough with pitched vocals then warps into an unexpected bass monster.
Cut Copy’s new album & third opus Zonoscope will be unleashed officially upon the world February 2011.

PANTAMUZIK only started 10 years ago but their roots go much deeper than that. A decade ago there weren’t any digital sales and everything was released on vinyl. This probably fertilized the underground somewhat. The label and the artists involved didn’t bridge sonics for marketing reasons – they did it for a love of music. Label founder, Humberto Polar describes it best.
When I started Pantamuzik, back in 2000, no digital music downloads were sold at all, vinyl distribution was an insane investment in Latin America (still is) and nobody djed with CDs. So, if you were a musician as I was, trying to establish an ethos about creating a real Latin-American breed of electronic music that didn’t sound like an idiot putting some congas on top of some loops, you had to be really patient and in good terms with your own suicidal tendencies, financially speaking.
Iceland’s STEED LORD have a knack for befriending nearly every top producer with ears to the underground. I’m not sure how they do this but who’s complaining. Certainly not me, especially since the combined efforts result in such pleasant diversity. They’re own production (of original tunes and remixes) spans enough genres to dizzy the strongest midnight zombie. Ahem. Check the house tune below.
Steed Lord will be performing at Dim Mak’s Tuesday night party at Cinespace along with Bunny Holiday and Dim Mak resident DJs, Them Jeans and Dan Oh, tomorrow night (Tuesday, December 21st). The night is being hosted by fakeRICH and it is also the Dim Mak x AMP Vinyl Release Party, so expect a cracking party! Flyer is attached. Please get back to me promptly if you would like to be added to the guest list.
