Two generations of WARP Records producers—’90s veteran Luke Vibert and ’00s sensation Jimmy Edgar have collaborated on the new compilation, Universus Vol. II, coming out on Circutree Records. The tune, “Disco,” offers a sample-heavy twisting of ’80s boogie synths and squarewave bass that sound like they should be played on an interstellar party boat.
Jamie XX has more or less become a one-man facinating beat brand, pushing out an amalgamation of electronic sounds more eclectic than 100 random club DJs combined. So we’re excited as all get-out to check this two hour mix he did for BBC Radio One’s legendary Essential Mix program (a show that usually isn’t so inventive itself). The mix opens with a classic from Orbital, and then gets deep with interesting gems from Floating Points, James Blake and Jamie’s own reworkings of Gil Scott-Heron and Radiohead.
Tracklist after the jump.
You know it can’t get anymore exclusive when you get a podcast from one of the most adventurous and expansive producers on the planet: Luke Vibert. Ultimately one of the most prolific and elaborate auteurs of the electronic world, Vibert has created tracks that delve between the worlds of jazz, funk, disco, hip-hop and tweak-crazy acid house. Always appreciative of his influences and a sterling sample-picker, Luke Vibert and his many alter-egos have one thing in common: their love for the entire notion of what makes a tune whole. From the drum patterns, to the synth, tweaks and finally the layering of samples, Vibert is truly one of the more remarkable producers of our time. While listening to this fantasticly eclectic mix, pick up his new record under his Wagon Christ guise, called Toomorrow out now on Ninja Tune.
