Adam Wray wrote that Onion headline. I work in a boring office, spending 40ish hours per week sitting at a boring desk, staring at boring spreadsheets. I complain about my job a lot, but beyond paying a decent wage, it gives me total freedom to listen to music all damn day. At a time when […]
And Then There Was Dauwd February 6, 2013
Adam Wray is really The Professor from the And 1 videos. Dauwd’s sound is nothing if not of its time. Stacked with steady 4/4 rhythms, down-pitched vocal snatches, and neon synths, it fits snugly with the style of Chicago-indebted house plied by producers like Julio Bashmore and George Fitzgerald. With just two 12″s and a […]
Adam Wray may or may not have beaten up someone in a Jeremy Scott sweater last night. A few things I love: regional strains of dance music; creative, idiosyncratic junk food; compellingly inept sports franchises. Cradle of modern electronic music, birthplace of the coney (a marvel of modern gluttony), and home to the improbably awful […]
Adam Wray works the angles. The best dance music works on two levels: it’s body music, coaxing you into movement; it’s mind music, too, engaging enough to work outside the club. With “Thinking of You,” forthcoming on Hotflush, London’s George Fitzgerald is working both angles. Debuted last weekend in the midst of his January 19 […]
Adam Wray skipped work to write this. Listen to any two consecutive Burial releases and you’ll hear similar sounds and structures. Spin his 2007 debut after “Truant/Rough Sleeper“and the changes in his sound become more apparent. His latest 12” marks an exciting new stage in his perpetual bloom. It’s his most unpredictable work to date, […]
Adam Wray was wearing Lugz at the 12/12/12 charity show. Hendrik Weber aka Pantha du Prince is one of the finest minimal techno craftsmen. His 2010 LP Black Noise was elegant and refined, making up for with precision what it lacked in raw energy. Last year, Weber linked with Norweigan collective The Bell Laboratory for […]
The Year in Hyperdub, 2012 December 11, 2012
Since its inception in 2004, Steve Goodman aka Kode9’s Hyperdub has been a locus of atom-smashing and inventive electronic music. 2012 was a banner year for Hyperdub, with major releases from label stalwarts like Burial and Cooly G and exciting work from up-and-comers like Laurel Halo and Walton alike. These are some of the choice […]
Adam Wray’s favorite Ninja Turtle is Leonardo. Drew Lustman aka FaltyDL, has been one of dance music’s unsung heroes for a minute. Since signing with Planet Mu in 2008, Lustman’s been working hard to establish himself as one North America’s most consistent and exciting producers, filtering far-flung regional sounds through a distinctly New York lens. […]
Born in Nova Scotia, raised in small-town Ontario, and about to jet off to London to work with Paul Epworth, Jeremy Rose aka Zodiac has come a long way in a short time. With a just-released solo EP and a ton of work in progress, he’s quickly moving out from under the shadow of his […]
Adam Wray: continuing to ensure that Passion of the Weiss employs more Canadians than Tim Horton’s. There’s a lot of big talk about this Kendrick Lamar record. Classic, this. Voice of a generation, that. It means nothing. We have no idea how good kid m.A.A.d. city will stand the test of time. It looks and […]
