Watch Future, Pharrell and Pusha T in the video for Move That Dope
Mar 7, 2014 5:30am | Fact Magazine
Cameos and Gandalf hats are rife.
Future, Pharrell and Pusha T set the bar high on their supreme new single ‘Move That Dope’, an agile, industrial-edged production from Mike Will Made It that finds all three rappers on strong form.
The Benny Boom-directed video is just as much fun, featuring police car chases, some strong looks from Future, Pharrell’s hat (not the one he just auctioned for $44,000), and cameos from Tyler, The Creator, Wiz Khalifa and Schoolboy Q.
Had ‘Move That Dope’ appeared a just few days earlier it would surely have earned a place in our list of Pharrell’s 50 Best Tracks spend an afternoon digging through that one to remind yourself of Skateboard P’s long-running genius.

Scratching! What is it?
It depends who you ask. To some it was mere noise, static to be ignored. To others it was a pioneering modern musical practice, born of the subversion of a home appliance. And to yet another group it was turntablism: a subset of one of hip hop’s four pillars, DJing. Not unlike jazz, turntablism required hundreds of hours of devotion and private practice to achieve a level of technical skill and musical understanding that allowed you to create, compose and freestyle in ways few had imagined possible.
While this isn’t the place for a history of scratching, some degree of historical setting is required to u...

Save the Planet, Kill Yourself: remembering Electroclash
Mar 7, 2014 4:37am | Fact Magazine
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…
By the late 90s, the culture that had built around the acid house boom had begun disappearing up its own nose in earnest, and superstar DJ culture had become truly gruesome to behold. Of course great music was still being made, and UK garage flew the flag high for proper innovative party music, but elsewhere the mainstream was dominated by the creative vacuums of prog house, trance and big beat and the scene was dominated by egos, helicopters, coke and pomposity. Something had to give.
When it did, it was gross and spectacular; it’s all documented in the brilliant Superstar DJs Here We Go! by Dom Phillips a book that should be on the national curriculum and looking back it seems obvious how necessary electroclash was. Just as punk had provided a cheap, transgressive, exciting and accessible route to the heart of rock’n'roll as an antidote to a rock establishment that had become remote from its roots and its constituency, so electroclash gave the finger to the established values and egos of time and burst in a riotous flash of colour and polysexual sauciness into the middle of the dance scene.

Drowned in Leeds: March/April 2014
Mar 7, 2014 4:11am | Drowned In Sound
Its been a while since I last penned this column; Leeds was preparing itself for Forward Russias reunion gig at the Brudenell Social Club, with a mixture of nervous anticipation and excitement from both fans and band. During excellent openers This Et Al the band could be seen calmly and quietly preparing themselves, and I wondered if theyd have lost some of the intense passion that propelled them to cult band status last decade now that time has marched on. I stopped worrying the second Tom manically burst onto the stage in the trademark t-shirt, eyes-glazed and once again seemingly possessed by his old cable twisting demon. They were truly brilliant and a reminder that a lot of the current crop really could up their game. The band must have been pleased with how it went too, as theyve been coaxed out for one more special Dance To The Radio curated gig at Leeds Town Hall as part of Live at Leeds Festival in May. Where they will be joined by I Like Trains (playing a reflective 10th anniversary set), Lanterns on the Lake and Sam Airey. If you want to get a taste for whats in store, Forward Russia have made the audio from their Brudenell gig available on their bandcamp here.
There have been plenty of other announcements for Live at Leeds too, and it genuinely seems like their best line-up yet. Having managed to pull together a strong bill that will draw people from all scenes, with confirmations so far including The Hold Steady, Blood Red Shoes, Fuck B...

Livity Sound remix series continues with A Made Up Sound
Mar 7, 2014 3:58am | Fact Magazine
Dubwise Bristol label/collective Livity Sound have announced the second installment of their remix series.
Hot on the heels of the first 12″, which featured remixes from MMM and Pangaea, comes a two-track effort from Dutch producer Dave Huismans under his techno and house-leaning alias A Made Up Sound.
The source material for both tracks is the austere, heavily percussive techno of Asusu’s ‘Velez’, which Huismans embellishes with spooky chimes on Remix 1 and cranks into an acid jam on Remix 2. Preview both tracks below.
The remixes are out on 12″ on March 31 and follow Livity Sound’s excellent 2013 compilation album. [via Juno]

Perc announces The Power and The Glory remix 12, featuring Untold and Tessela
Mar 7, 2014 3:41am | Fact Magazine
Perc invites three artists into his oubliette.
The Perc Trax boss’ brilliant second LP, The Power And The Glory, is a hammering exercise in shock-and-awe techno – shattered, nasty club music, spotted with demonic giggles and Whitehouse-grade screams. Next month, the producer will turn select album tracks over to a number of contemporaries for a new remix 12″.
Untold – the man responsible for the other exceptional roughneck techno LP released in the last couple of months – contributes a remix of ‘Bleeding Colours’. R&S and Punch Drunk-approved Radio 1 jock Tessela provides a remix of the shredding ‘Take Your Body Off’, and Turbo regulars Clouds have a a crack at ‘Dumpster’.
The Power and the Glory Remixed will arrive on April 11 through Perc Trax. In the meantime, spend some time with Perc’s walloping February FACT mix.
