Hotly tipped super group, Du Tonc (Matt Van Schie of Van She fame and Mighty Mouse) will release their highly anticipated debut single, “Darkness” on seminal electronic label Cheap Thrills on the 4th February 2013.
Renowned for their blistering, sought after productions, “Darkness” oozes clear influences from both artists. Hints of disco drenched in live bass mix seamlessly with guitars and drums; fused with a love of synthesizer’s propelled along by Matt Van Schie’s haunting yet uplifting vocal.
NICKEL is the project of one Robert Nickel and he crafts some of the most euphoric, radical new music around. Made with the freeform attitude of classic techno visionaries, the fuck-you braggadocio of Berlin in the nineties, the cast-iron integrity of punk and the headlong desperate rush of rave, it’s untamed music for the moment.
2013 sees NICKEL unleash his aural onslaught in the form of “ZYGZM”, a thumping bass laden beast of a tune out on hotly tipped label, Police Records this winter.
Andre Anjos launched RAC while still a student at Greenville College in Illinois and quickly became one of the most exciting and in demand remixers around with Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Kings of Leon all asking for the RAC treatment.
RAC Chapter One celebrates the first part of his career and compiles some of the classic remixes including The Shins “Sleeping Lessons” which first brought RAC to international attention. The album is due out on November 6 via RAC Records and will be available at all digital retailers. In celebration of the release, RAC will hit the road in North America this November on the “Endless Summer Tour” with Classixx, Cosmic Kids, and JeromeLOL.
Half of the music is exclusive to this compilation and includes specially commissioned originals and remixes by Danny Daze, DJ T, Perseus, Soul Clap, Flume, Softwar, PharaoBlack Magic, Slow Hands, Tigerskin and Worst Friends.
