Listen to Azealia Banks new single, Heavy Metal and Reflective
Jul 27, 2014 11:48am | Fact Magazine

Finally free of a label, Banks previews Broke With Expensive Taste.

Earlier this month, Azealia Banks announced that she had parted ways with Interscope, a move which would supposedly clear the way for her long-delayed debut album Broke With Expensive Taste.

New single ‘Heavy Metal and Reflective’ finds Banks as combative as ever over a synth-heavy beat produced by frequent collaborator Lil Internet. Stream it below; it’s due out on July 29 but is out now in New Zealand.

Previously, Lil Internet linked up with Banks for Yung Rapunxel (the one with the creepy video). Last we heard, both songs will appear on Broke With Expensive Taste.



Listen: Azealia Banks new song Heavy Metal and Reflective
Jul 27, 2014 11:34am | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this month, Azealia Banks announced that she had severed all ties with Interscope Records. After signing with the label in 2011, Banks grew increasingly frustrated as Interscope repeatedly delayed the release of her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste. Since the news of her departure surfaced, Banks has established her own imprint, Azealia Banks Records, reportedly retaining all the rights to the music released via Interscope.

Wasting little time, Banks returns today with her first single as a newly-minted independent artist, “Heavy Metal and Reflective”. The self-professed “ass-clapperrrrrr” is certainly a decent enough start for Banks to reclaim her career, as the combo of throbbing bass and sweat-soaked synths has the potential to a true club banger. While she isnt rapping about anything that substantial, mostly references to “Billie Jean” and Tamagotchis, theres an air of focus and confidence in Banks approach that sounds like that of an emcee who is hungry once more.

Listen in below:

“Heavy Metal and Reflective” will be available on iTunes on Monday. A music video is set to debut on August 5th.



Big K.R.I.T. Pay Attention (Feat. Rico Love)
Jul 27, 2014 10:25am | StereoGum

Earlier this year, Big K.R.I.T. released a track every day of the week for something he called “Week Of K.R.I.T.” that gave us “New Agenda” featuring Rick Ross and the A$AP Ferg-assisted “Lac Lac.” In April, he announced his new album Cadillactica and shared its first single with the intense “MT. Olympus.” Here’s another track from the new album called “Pay Attention” and it features R&B crooner Rico Love. Notably, it’s the first song from K.R.I.T. that isn’t self-produced — for this one, he recruited Jim Jonsin, probably best known for producing Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop.” Listen below.

Senator Seeks Clarification Of Carry-On Rules After Deer Tick Frontman Is Denied Aboard Plane
Jul 27, 2014 10:06am | StereoGum

Deer Tick frontman John McCauley ran into some airport troubles last week after he tried to catch a flight to the Newport Folk Festival. While trying to board a plane from Philadelphia to Rhode Island, U.S. Airways refused to let him or his wife, Vanessa Carlton, on board with his guitar. McCauley tweeted about the incident and had to take an Amtrak train to get to the festival instead. The airline responded by refunding the ticket and giving the couple a voucher for the cost of the train. Everything turned out OK, but because of the incident, U.S. Senator Jack Reed issued a statement on Friday that urged the Department Of Transportation to start enforcing a 2012 law that would allow musical instruments to be carry-on items if they can fit in the cabin. Reed cited Deer Tick’s incident and called for clearer rules to be put in place, noting that this was not the first time that this sort of thing had happened.

Stream a new EP by Eyedress, Egyptian Night Club
Jul 27, 2014 9:28am | Fact Magazine

One of our artists to watch shares a new EP.

Manilas Idris Vicuña had planned to take his Eyedress project on a tour of Europe and the UK this year. Unfortunately, visa problems caused him to cancel his shows. “My sincerest apologies to my fans and promoters,” he writes on Facebook. “I feel terrible but there is nothing I can do now.”

Well, not exactly nothing: Vicuña has uploaded the six-track Egyptian Night Club EP to Soundcloud as a sign of good will. It’s loaded with the same woozy, After Dark-influenced synthscapes and ghostly vocals that we’ve come to expect from the young talent. The EP features frequent collaborator Skint Eastwood and sports some of the best song titles of the year in ‘Anything For Your Love (Alien Lap Dance)’ and ‘Pussy Killer (Sexorcist)’.

Stream Egyptian Night Club below; his debut album on XL’s Abeano imprint is expected soon.


Pete Tong reveals which DJ has consistently eluded him for an Essential Mix
Jul 27, 2014 9:04am | Fact Magazine

Highlights from Tong’s Reddit AMA.

Essential Mix master Pete Tong is the latest person to subject himself to an Ask-Me-Anything thread on Reddit, offering some insight into his two decades on BBC radiowaves.

When asked to name one artist he would love to have do an Essential Mix, Tong pointed to minimal techno figurehead Ricardo Villalobos. “[He] has consistently eluded me. We have talked about it, he hasn’t actually said no, but he can often be seen running out of the back door of restaurants in Ibiza when I enter.” It should be noted that Villalobos and Richie Hawtin teamed up for an Essential Mix back in 2005.

Also, when asked about a Burial Essential Mix, Tong offered this cryptic response: “burial fourtet cajmere green velvet …. I’m asking.” He might be having a bit of fun with the Burial-Four Tet “rumors,” because Four Tet dropped an Essential Mix in 2010, and Green Velvet (aka Cajmere) finally got his this week.


Man dies at GlobalGathering festival
Jul 27, 2014 8:43am | Fact Magazine

Sad news from Warwickshire.

A 20-year-old man has died after falling ill at the GlobalGathering dance music festival. The man was taken from Long Marston airfield near Stratford-upon-Avon to Warwick Hospital on Friday evening; he died early Saturday morning.

At this time, the death is being treated as unexplained until a post-mortem examination can take place. A spokesperson for the festival has commented: “Everyone at Global Gathering is deeply saddened by this tragic news. Our sincerest thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends at this time. We are assisting Warwickshire Police with their ongoing investigation.”

The two-day festival featured the Prodigy, David Guetta, Maya Jane Coles and many more. In 2012, GlobalGathering experienced its first death in what is sadly becoming a common occurrence at festivals around the world. [via Mixmag]
