Tonight at Cameo Gallery, some heavyweight bass will be heard in a variety of flavors. If you prefer what’s next on the stratosphere of bass-fueled fantasia, look no further than Max Pearl’s set to start off the night; as the Sci-Fi & Fantasy label head will provide his indicative take on forthcoming sonic textures that are sure to take over NYC soon enough. However, if you’re looking to be courageous, look no further than URB favorite FaltyDL; he’ll be coming off fresh from his latest LP release, Hardcourage, on Ninja Tune. Finally, if you’re looking for booty-bomb kicks and toms, Addison Groove is here to deliver the medicine. He’ll be bringing his signature 808-centric show to Cameo for a special NYC appearance. Check out the flier and show details down below, post-jump.
Cosmin TRG had a fairly quiet 2012, but that doesn’t mean that he wasn’t busy. The Romanian producer unveiled plans for an upcoming album this week, due out on 50Weapons on April the 26th. Of the album, titled “Gordian“, Cosmin had the following to say: “Gordian is as much a document of my past year as it is the beginning of a conversation. The title references an ancient myth, but describes the very contemporary, impossible task of discerning between real and replicated, authentic and contrived. Coping with facts, objects, and bodies, the necessity of ‘making it’, fear of failure, fear of ‘not being happy’ are today’s topics, and Gordian is my attempt at an exploration of those issues.” Presale is already available for CD and limited vinyl, and you can stream the first snippet called “Noise Code” below.

With our final podcast of 2012 being a truly personal honor to share with you all, we give you the vibes of Jeremy Guindo aka Bambounou, at his finest. To say Bambounou took over this year would be an understatement, as not only did the Parisian producer have his most extensive year with releases, but he crossed over to the world of techno (just barely) with his debut LP, Orbiting, which was just released last month on Modeselektor’s 50WEAPONS imprint. Guindo is obviously looking towards the past and the future when it comes to his music and mixing, considering that this is the only beginning of an intriguing career for the young producer. And with the mix he’s given us to close out 2012 as well as our chat with him, we’re certainly looking forward to what’s coming up for Bambounou. Check out the mix, interview and tracklist down below.
Modeselektor’s 50Weapons label continued to expand its roster in 2012 with the addition of 22-year-old producer Bambounou this August, with the release of his “Cobe” EP – a much larger-scale release, in every sense of the word, since his very well-received “Alpha” EP on Youngunz in mid-2011. On November 23rd the young Parisian will release his debut full-length on the same label. The album, called “Orbiting,” takes into account Bambounou’s wide range of influences under one encompassing theme: space. He says he began the process with quite a minimal approach, and eventually ended up with a variety of different tracks, all under an umbrella of 90s house and techno mixed with “some kind of bass music.” Follow the jump to hear a preview of one of the tracks, called “Any Other Service.”
Any Shed news is good news, which makes today a good day – Shed will be releasing a new album, titled The Killer. It’s due out July 27th on Modeselektor’s 50Weapons, the home of his recent The Praetorian/RQ-170, and is his first album away from label Ostgut Ton. Ton will, however, be releasing an EP by The Traveller, one of Shed’s many aliases, which will come out on April 30th. Follow the jump for The Killer‘s full tracklisting.
