Juveniles ‘Without Warning’

After a Yuksek-produced debut album in 2013, Juveniles have come back with a second album Without Warning. With this new LP, we witness the evolution of an artist who’s more and more open to collaboration (Yuksek, Helen Feng, Joakim, Clarens, Le Comte, Lenparrot…) but also an evolution of his compositional process. Rennes native Jean Sylvain has created a label (Paradis Records) with its own studio to which he invites people to work with h...

Tunisian experimentalist Deena Abdelwahed, tipped by the likes of Acid Arab and Débruit, delivers her first EP of mutated dance transmissions on French label InFiné today. The four tracks on the Klabb EP fuse local rhythms and new technology in the same fresh way as Omar Souleyman's collaborations with Four Tet or the Shangaan electro moves of Nozinja. However, do not make the mistake of classifying this as 'world music' - this is a vital sound...

The Blaze ‘Territory’

Mysterious duo The Blaze made quite a name for themselves with the 'Virile' track released last year, and particularly the video accompanying it, which was more like a short film and took a fresh, modern look at questions of masculinity.

The video for 'Tina' itself includes footage from Asia Argento’s directorial feature Misunderstood, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg. An earlier version of the song ac...
