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.
As with any major release nowadays, the number of remixes, both official and bootleg, can be overwhelming. So how does one decide which rework of a band as beloved as The XX is worth listening to? How about asking Jamie XX of the group itself, who debuted a remix of their current single, “Angels” done by Four Tet, whose recent remixes of indie luminaries such as Radiohead, Vampire Weekend and Battles (plus his own superb catalog of work) has made him one remixer you can certainly count on.
The remixes keep coming from the Radiohead camp. Having supplied an endless series of quality reworking, leading up to the release of TKOL1234567, Radiohead have decided to give up a few alternate mixes from Jamie XX, Nathan Fake and Anstam from the ones that appeared on the two-CD release. We can assume that this is the last of the collection, but who knows what else is in store.
On Tuesday, Radiohead celebrated the release of their TKOL RMX 1234567 album with an event in London that featured DJ sets by TKOL remixers Jamie XX, Caribou, Lone and Illum Sphere. The evening started off with a brief set by Thom Yorke, who has been spending plenty of time behind the decks lately—including a surprise set at Low End Theory last spring. You can download Yorke’s set, which featured tracks from Headhunter, Madvillian, Aphex Twin and Ramadanman, and watch the singer play records on The Boiler Room website.
Next up for Yorke is a mix he did for the BBC’s 6Mix, which will air on Sunday, Oct. 17th. The show features Yorke playing and discussing some of his favorite current records, including Zomby, Low, Emika and James Blake. He also plays a few Radiohead remixes that didn’t make it onto the TKOL RMX 1234567 record. Check out the tiny teaser for the show.
