Underworld Vs. The Misterons – Athens

“he internationally revered techno superstars Underworld pay tribute to
their art-school roots on their new compilation album, Athens. The
first in a series, this rich musical mix is packed with rare grooves
and cult gems from the outer limits of dance music, jazz-rock, fusion
and progressive pop. This album shows the open-minded flipside of
Underworld, the more eclectic and experimental foundations that lie
beneath their shimmering electro soundscapes. The album is credited to
Underworld vs The Misterons, a collective alter ego which includes the
group’s core members Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, their regular studio and
live collaborator Darren Price, plus creative mastermind Steven Hall.
Ranging far and wide across musical genres and eras, this music will
appeal equally to vinyl-loving connoisseurs and arty party hedonists.
The grooves are still funky, but the vibes are warm and soulful, with
more live instruments than sequencers or drum machines

Blockhead – The Music Scene – out november 2nd, 2009

New York hip hop producer Tony Simon aka Blockhead returns with his third and best instrumental album for Ninja Tune.

Blockhead has long made beautiful, emotive music based around the hip
hop template, but on “The Music Scene” he elevates his craft to another
level. Tony puts it down to the use of Ableton, which means that rather
than working from “one basic beat and building off it” (the standard
hip hop model), he has begun stringing together multiple beats and
weaving them together into increasingly complex, surprising and
satisfying pieces of music. As he himself puts it, “I made each song a
little more of a musical journey than anything I have ever done
before.”

Blockhead’s ambition to “tell stories without words” is evident from
opener “It’s Raining Clouds” onwards. The tune starts off as classic
downtempo and ends up almost drum and bass, the music having changed
and fallen away, echoing back through itself and feeding into previous
themes at least three times. It’s an epic in an album of epics.

At the heart of the record is the remarkable “The Daily Routine” – an
exploration of drug addiction (based around a found recording of drug
addicts arguing), Blockhead says “it’s pretty much the creepiest song
I’ve ever made.” “Four Walls,” meanwhile aims a musical broadside at
the current vogue for autotune. “Which One Of You Jerks Drank My Arnold
Palmer” is huge ambient space rock hip hop. “The Prettiest Seaslug” is
Bahia-beat on opium. “Tricky Turtle” begins as afro-blaxpoitation,
turns into a voodoo orgy and ends somewherte in the Middle East.
“Farewell Spaceman” starts off sounding like an outtake from
“Bewitched” and ends as an ecstatic, chugging flight off into the
stars.

While “The Music Scene” represents a development in Blockhead’s work,
he still holds true to his basic beliefs about music and rhythm. When
not working on his new album he has been providing production for Aesop
Rock, DJ Signify, Joanna Erdos and many more, plus remixes for Yameen
and Chin Chin, amonst others. Whereas the music scene is “a bastardized
version of something that was already watered down,” Blockhead’s “The
Music Scene,” like his career as a whole, is “the opposite of that.” By
re-working, chopping and melding samples, by blending them together,
Blockhead restores rather than dilutes their purity.
