The origin of that Lightworks sample, keeping it raw and oysters: DOOM crashes Madlib interview for Bonafide magazine
Sep 20, 2014 8:44am | Fact Magazine

Mythical hip hop duo reminisce in a London pub.

During a late 2013 European tour, Madlib sat down with UK producer Kidkanevil for an interview on behalf of Bonafide magazine, one of a handful of independent printed music magazines left in the UK.

The conversation took place in a north London pub and while geeking out with your favourite producer might be enough for most hip hop fans, Kidkanevil had the pleasure to have his chat with Madlib gatecrashed by the one and only DOOM, now a London resident and apparently intent on catching up with the bad kid for their much vaunted follow up to Madvillainy.

The resulting interview graces the cover of Bonafide’s latest edition, and the magazine have kindly allowed us to post a couple juicy quotes from the conversation. Read on for Madlib detailing sample swaps with Dilla and DOOM recounting the recording of ‘Fancy Clown’ as well as a frank discussion of oysters.

Bonafide Magazine #9 is out now – it also includes interviews and features with Theo Parrish, Deltron 3030, Just Blaze, Rustie and more. The issue features a cover designed by Stones Throw’s own Jeff Jank, see it at the bottom of this post.

All of this will fade away: Ron Morelli and Eric Copeland discuss L.I.E.S., Logo My Ego and 15 years of friendship
Sep 20, 2014 8:36am | Fact Magazine

A wide-ranging discussion between two underground lynchpins.

Earlier this year, Ron Morelli announced plans to release Eric Copelands Logo My Ego, a five-track mini-album with the warped grooves of melted vinyl and enough twists and turns to keep heads swiveling. Press materials billing it as pop music for the demented are definitely accurate.

But while it was the first time the prolific experimental artist (and Black Dice member) landed on L.I.E.S., Copeland and Morellis story extends back more than a decade. The following free-flowing conversation between the pair charts the origin of the record, how L.I.E.S. differs from other labels, the state of the New York scene and more. Logo My Ego is due out on September 23.



This project is completely born out of our friendship of 15 years.”


Eric Copeland:
I think we met a ABC No Rio, if I remember correctly.

Ron Morelli: I think it was 2000, 2001 around there. Its kind of a blur, right?

EC: I was new to the city, I had only been there a few years. I didnt know a ton of people in Brooklyn. Thats probably how Ron and I stayed friends, he was one of the few people I knew.

RM: For me, around that time, I had just moved back down to the city from...


Listen to Matta taken from Ssalivas ambient cassette album Pantani
Sep 20, 2014 7:43am | Fact Magazine

Belgian producer returns to Los Angeles experimental label.

With Cassette Store Day coming up on September 27, Los Angeles-based label Leaving Records has announced a new full-length from Belgian producer Ssaliva, the experimental and ambien alias of Francois Boulanger who has also released as Cupp Cave.

Pantani is Boulanger’s third album proper, following one for Surf Kill, a self-release and a grip of EPs for Brussels’ Vlek. This is the producer’s second cassette release for Leaving Records, the label headed by Matthewdavid, who’s also known for his own experimental exercises and cassette fetish.

The album will drop as a limited edition cassette on September 27, to tie with CSD, and a full digital release on September 30. The cassette will only be available at select locations.

You can hear album cut ‘Matta’ exclusively below, a soft and floating composition reminiscent of Boulanger’s science fiction-inspired work for Vlek.

Tracklist and artwork for the release are also below. For more on cassettes, be sure to read up on Brad Rose’s regular FACT column Caught On Tape.

Tracklist:
1. RIVN
2. Tromeo
3. Matta
4. Canyon
5. Orbiter
6. Map and Territory
7. Sstress
8. XR21
9. Until Death As A Memory

Hear Funknroll taken from Princes forthcoming Art Official Age album
Sep 20, 2014 6:47am | Fact Magazine

“Get into the rhythm, it’s good for the soul.”

The Purple One has shared a track from his forthcoming album, the 37th of his career and notable for being Prince’s return to his Warner Brothers home after a notoriously acrimonious split.

‘Funknroll’ was first unveiled during Prince‘s appearance on Arsenio earlier this year, with his backing band ThirdEyeGirl.

The track is to be included in Art Official Age with an alternative version appearing on Plectrumelectrum, his other new album alongside his backing band. Both albums are scheduled for release on September 30.

Hear the track for yourself below, it’s quite the rollercoaster ride. [Via Rolling Stone]

Fresh off a joint US tour, Lil Wayne unveils video for Gridin featuring Drake
Sep 20, 2014 6:29am | Fact Magazine

Street fighting rap.

Having recently toured the United States under the banner of Lil’ Wayne vs Drake, complete with an app for fans that allowed them to help their favourite rapper in real time during the show’s battling segments, the Young Money artists have now unveiled the video for Lil’ Wayne’s ‘Grindin”, comprised entirely of footage from the tour.

‘Grindin” is taken from Lil’ Wayne’s forthcoming, and supposedly final, album Tha Carter V. The album is due for release on October 28, an announcement made in August via ESPN of all places.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the duo have a clear chemistry.


The Weeks Best Vinyl Releases
Sep 20, 2014 6:01am | Fact Magazine

Few people are onto great records as quickly as a great record store.

After years spent discovering gems in Phonicas end of year lists, it made sense to give them a regular space on FACT. Every Saturday, Phonica staff will pick out the five vinyl records you should grab this week.



BASIC CHANNEL
Q-Loop
(Basic Channel)

Two vintage 1995 Basic Channel cuts make the leap from CD to vinyl for the very first time, going under the oh-so-dub-techno titles of ‘Q-Loop (Full Length’, ‘Q1.2′ and the ambient ‘Mutism’. We repeat: very first time on vinyl!

MK
‘Strider’ (Oracy Remix)
(Mojuba)

Marc Kinchen has finally been getting his dues since his Storm Queen remix, um, stormed the charts last year, so it’s no surprise that someone’s gone digging in the vaults. ‘Strider’ is an Detroit techno obscurity from 1991 that never made it onto ‘Get It Right’, a very early MK release (with Area 10), and now it’s been reissued alongside a remix by Mojubas Oracy.

AMADOU & MARIAM
