ada‘s debut single “blindhouse” (areal 10) got us all hot under the collar when it was released way back in 2002 – an exquisite blend of woozy pads and hypnotic bass licks ( as heard on triple r’s doubly recommended mix cd ‘friends‘. her debut album ‘blondie’ was no less awesome, and in recent times, singles / remixes and indeed her own imprint IRR (home of AA fave dj koze’s killer ‘i want to sleep’ 12″) have given us even more reason to cherish her impeccable, chunky, emotive, analogue techno.

her latest foray is a mixtape cum / semi greatest hits entitled ‘adaptations‘, taking in some of her finest original tracks, remixes and rerubs of her own stuff, including michael mayer & tobias thomas’s spangly euphoric take on her yeah yeah yeahs cover of ‘maps’. following last week’s awesome exercise one exclusive mix for us, we’re honoured now to have a mix from the great lady also. truly taking our concept of skirting the well trodden boompity boom that lines vast swathes of the bloggosphere to her chest and running for the hills, we’re thrilled to see tracks from radiohead, bjork, boards of canada, busta rhymes and yes luscious jackson (! – an allez-allez first for them) amongst her many choice selections. anyway, get to downloading, and do be sure to go out and support on the 8th of june when the cd’s released!

plaid – ralome
boards of canada – sixtyten/turquoise hexagon sun
the sundays – skin & bones
stereolab – super-electric
luscious jackson – parade/faith
radiohead – fitter happier
björk – 5 years
dj koze aka adolf noise – scene de la vie de rauf denktasch
busta rhymes feat. janet jackson – what’s it gonna be
daft punk – funk ad
mr. fingers aka larry heard – can u feel it
everything but the girl – each and every one

if you haven’t got your tickets yet for next fridays we fear silence/eat your own ears/greco roman extravaganza then we’d suggest you did it soon. the boys have knocked together a breaktaking line up for the arches down in london brigde taking in junior boys (live), shackleton (live), circlesquare (live), pantha du prince, caribou, joe goddard (hot chip), ross allen, kieran hebden, totally enormous extinct dinosaurs and allez-allez. as we say, breathtaking. full events details here. get your tickets here.

exercise one

kick djs mix – by exercise one (145.54mb, 63:35mins)
[right click here to save]

exercise one, the berlin duo of marco freivogel and ingo gansera, have rapidly positioned themselves as leading lights in the german capital’s ever burgeoning techno scene. meeting early in the decade whilst working at k7 records they began working together in a basement studio in kreuzberg which quickly lead to their first release ‘roll with you’ appearing on mofa schallplatten.

from their they have spread their wings wide through remixes for shackleton and lee burridge and furthur releases on mobilee and num records. not content with that in 2005 they launched their own label lan muzic which has put out releases from themselves, peter van hoesen and our old friend phillip sherburne.

their debut album ‘in cars we trust’ is about to drop on mobilee and showcases the spirit of improvisation that drives their live sets. it has been preceeded by their ‘no news today’ ep whose stand out cut ‘it is happening again’ has been driving dancefloors crazy at recent allez-allez outings. go here to pick them both up and enjoy this brilliant mix which gives you a good idea of where they are calling from.

cylob – rewind
massive attack – unfinished sympathy (paul oakenfold remix)
daft punk – da funk
front 242 – conditional humain (prothese)

we were lucky enough to start this year with a storming gig in our stomping ground of manchester at the barnstormingly brilliant naive melody party. held in the brilliant charlies (think back street brothel meets 1970’s chinese restaurant) their night is a celebration of the NM gang’s favourite kinds of music electronic and not.

on the guest front they’ve had an embarrasment of riches including joakim, andy blake, den haan, krikor, pete herbert, dirty soundsystem, aeroplane and our good selves. their next party on friday may 29th where they have dmx crew performing.

as well as being excellent promoters they are no slouches in the dj department which their residency at bugged out attests to. they’ve put together this mix for us that they say has “a good spring morning-time vibe, on the bike ride to work, dreaming of a summer evening.” perfect.

fridge – cut up piano & xylophone
sorcerer – blind yachtsman
fever ray – seven
foog – nowhere
the who – eminence front (love supreme edit)
dj kaos – way out pleasure
kink & neville watson – full flight
seth troxler – aphrika
dutch rhythm combo – bonaire (al usher remix)
madioko nrafika – ellell (kalabrese remix)
mugwump – ignored folklore
tanlines – flowers
ladies k – waikiki

nathan fake’s album launch party at corsica studios is nearly upon us. advance tickets for the party this friday the 15th are sold out but, fear not, there will be plently available on the door. the fun starts at 10 so get down early to get in and take advantage of discount entry before midnight. its going to be quite the party.
