LISTEN // Tomas Barfod Shares Beacon’s Remix of “Busy Baby”, New Album ‘Love Me’ Out June 10th

Tomas Barfod has shared Beacon‘s [Ghostly International] remix of latest single “Busy Baby”. Listen to the remix above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube.

Pre-order Love Me now via SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

On the remix Tomas writes:

“It’s always fun to get a remix back from somebody, it’s like unwrapping a present when you receive the link for the file, and wait for the music to download. Sometimes the remixer totally messes the original, other times it’s a new little peace of art. Beacon succeded to change the track completely yet keeping a lot of the elements from the original, which is a really hard task. I’m thrilled about their approach.”

Beacon adds:

“A bit about our process: We like to send mixed messages to our synths…confuse them in a way. We will have the pc tell them to do one thing and simultaneously the internal computer inside the synths do another. The results always tend to surprise us and take chords in interesting directions. But its also frustrating and unreliable. Multiple takes, fingers crossed hoping the synth does something special. that’s the treatment we gave Barfod’s chords. you hear it start our remix, notes we’ve chopped and wrangled, dancing between the L and R mix. When it came to the vocals, we decided to use Nina’s voice more as an instrument, floating around, landing every once in a while to check in.

Also today on Vice‘s site THUMP you can hear an exclusive mix Tomas made featuring his favorite house classics. Listen to the mix on their Soundcloud here.

ALBUM STREAM // Luke Temple Releases New Video For “Florida” On MOKB, New Album ‘Good Mood Fool’ Streaming Now on HypeMachine



Today the new video for “Florida” premiered on My Old Kentucky Blog! The video, which was featured in VEVO‘s Indie Wednesday showcase, is directed by Kris Moyes who has worked with Grizzly Bear, Kirin J Callinan, Sia, and more. Watch the video above or on VEVO here and then read Luke’s artist statement on the video.

On the video, Temple has released the following artist statement:

“There have been 70,000+ deaths related to the Mexican drug cartels since 2006.

The Unites States is, by far, the largest market for cocaine use in the world with roughly 16% of its population using the drug.
New Zealand is second at roughly 4%
Mexico itself hovers around 2%.
They supply it, we buy it.

Being a musician I have been around my share of the stuff and can say that there is an absolute disconnect from the reality of what is being supported by the purchase of cocaine.

Our privilege and relative comfort can make it hard to look outside of our immediate gratification.

It seems almost impossible to exist without being an indirect aid to the exploitation of those less fortunate but we can at least start with the glaringly obvious.

It’s absolutely not worth just being able to party for another few hours.”
