Today’s installment comes from someone who is not a stranger to the annals of URB. One of the leads from the camp that brings to you SFNY, Society, and Sweater Funk, Proof aka Marky Enriquez, has recently embarked on a new curated musical session in SF entitled Subject.
Courtesy of our friends and neighbors at Grown Kids Radio, whom you guys seriously need to check out ALL of the time, comes the Massive Selector alum’s newest aural concoction — Off Subject: Chemistry. Make no mistake about it, this is music for the grown folks nee kids of this musical generation. There’s a lot to like with this recent outing — it’s futuristic, space soul vibe paired with some interesting classic selections and even some indie darlings do much to illicit …
Red Bull Music Academy brings forth another epic event to the forefront of New York City; this time taking over the formerly-abandoned grounds at Autumn Bowl. Not only have they picked an intriguing spot, but the lineup is nothing short of brilliant: with support coming from Eglo badman Floating Points and the headline set being shared by the likes of Jamie xx (no need to reference where he’s from) and living legend of the land, Four Tet. This exclusive event is also free to the public, and will take place in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The address is up above and capacity is extremely, so get there early and enjoy. Check out some landmark tunes from the artists after the jump.
We’re more than thrilled that the combination of the Mister Saturday Night crew and Floating Points are reuniting for a special occasion tonight at House of Yes. Floating Points came here in 2010 and smashed us to bits at Brooklyn Fireproof (at the famed sister party Mister Sunday) with his inventive and sleek set of tunes ranging from soul, house, techno and jazz-inspired lushness. Here at URB, we’ve waited on bated breath for him to return to New York and take us on a trip to the dance once again. We urge you to do the same, as someone like Floating Points is truly a one-in-a-million sort of artist.

Fabulously foppish beatsmith Daedelus has been an LA treasure for years. But the producer also known as Alfred Darlington has been experiencing a heightened profile lately, sure to be raised even higher with this 30-minute mix he did for SoCal public radio powerhouse KCRW. Says the man himself:
An almost 30 minute mix of a morning live set, really pretty mellow throughout and still a snap shot for me of what I was feeling in 2010. I hope it has weight going into 2012. You’ll notice sounds from Lorn, Floating Points, Tokimonsta, Flying Lotus, and all sorts of non-electronics like Sonic Youth and Beirut, among many many other odds and ends.
When people think of Drums Of Death, they think of his amazing live shows and his work with artists like Peaches and Mumdance. They are at times keen to forget this is a guy who grew up around some of the best electronic music of all-time. Returning to the roots that shaped him, Drums Of Death is keen on bringing the focus back to house and techno-minded rhythms, as evident by the exclusive track URB premiered a while back. He continues to do so by giving us this week’s URB podcast, which includes current and classic. With tunes from Cosmin TRG, Skudge, Plastikman and Underground Resistance on this mix, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Tracklist and download after the jump.
