Happy Halloween!

Wherever in the world you readers may be, I hope you’re somehow embracing the Halloween spirit! At the very least, make it an excuse to have one hell of  a night (and dress up like a girl if that’s your thing). Don’t do anything too stupid and enjoy yourselves!

Magda Releases Debut Album: From The Fallen Page

I actually started listening to Magda before I had even heard of Richie Hawtin or his M_nus label. I was just getting into Minimal and I somehow stumbled upon a live set of hers. I was hooked.

While Caribou hosted a remix competition via Soundcloud a few months back with over 200 submissions, nothing really impressed me. While the winning remixes sound good (well alright the winner sounds great), nothing really added to the original – they just took certain elements, stripped them down, and ultimately made a more boring version of the original. Sometimes a simple re-edit of an amazing tune is all you can do. And Midland has mastered this with his remix. It’s currently in the top Downloads of XLR8R and really deserves to be.
