Petey Clicks (Clicks & Whistles) at Impulse FestivalA very special episode of Late Nite Tip this weekend as I was joined by Petey from Clicks & Whistles following our interesting weekend at the first Impulse Music and Arts Festival in Union Point, GA. More on that weekend in another post soon to follow.

In the absence of Distal and Mite this week, Petey and I went b2b for the full two hours, getting a bit different than we usually do. Thanks to everybody who locked in during the broadcast – and a huge thanks to Petey for grinding through after a month of touring to cap it off with an appearance on Late Nite Tip!

Distal – Civilization (TECCD014)

Civilization transcends what most expect from the legendary Tectonic label, with tracks that exploring a wide palette of styles, not simply BPM, and the unmistakable aesthetic of a Distal production.

Distal - Civilization (TECCD014)Distal‘s first full-length release Civilization will finally ship on the highly esteemed Tectonic Recordings label on April 30.

After my first few listens, quite simply, Civilization is a breath of fresh-air to Tectonic. Distal will be the first to cite Pinch‘s influence in his own work, however Civilization transcends what most expect from the legendary label. Tracks exploring a wide palette of styles, not simply BPM, with the unmistakable aesthetic of a Distal production. More importantly the tracks and their arrangement do feel cohesive, a craft that seems to elude many full length releases in the current wave of electronic music.

Get To Know: Archie Pelago

A comprehensive look at Brooklyn-based jazz trio Archie Pelago, highlighting currently available releases, interviews, and freely downloadable or streaming videos and mixes

Archie PelagoTo get you ready for the Archie Pelago mix on Mary Anne Hobbs’ XFM broadcast Saturday April 7, let’s make sure you know what’s good.

Archie Pelago, a three-man outfit from Brooklyn, combines classically influenced cello, saxophone, and trumpet with contemporary music and modern technology for a sound that reaches beyond other electronic / instrumental collaborations in recent memory.

Lately, too many performers treat Ableton Live as DJ software, not leveraging the software’s potential to reshape music during  performance, a realization not lost on Archie Pelago.

UPDATE:
Listen to Archie Pelago on Mary Anne Hobbs XFM (Broadcast 7-April 2012)

Pinch speaks to MixMag on Distal’s ‘Civilization’ full-length

Catching up with MixMag for their Scene Selection series, Tectonic label boss Pinch gave some wonderful accolades of the labels forthcoming full length release ‘Civilzation’ from Distal due in April.

Catching up with Mixmag’s Scene Selection series, Tectonic label boss Pinch gave some wonderful accolades of the labels forthcoming full-length release ‘Civilzation‘ from Distal due in April.

Big album dropping next month from a very exciting up and coming USA artist called Distal. ‘Civilization’ drops heavy at the end of April. The LP transcends the boundaries of dubstep, techno, juke, ghetto tech and laces it all with a gritty warehouse vibe. It really sounds like nothing else I’ve ever heard and I love it all the more for that… Keep your eyes peeled for that and some more bone crunching sub heavy rhythms on 12″ too…

In addition to the words, a podcast for stream and download including ‘Amphibian,’ a selection from the aforementioned Distal release.
