The previous month has seen some hyped releases on the “Big-H” labels with the likes of Scuba’s album naturally on Hotflush, Burial’s Ep unspurpringly on Hyperdub and Objekt’s 2-side single deservingly on Hessle. We’ve also seen a delayed return from Untold’s Hemlock label with a very interesting Randomer EP. Coincidences? Almost certainly. Tracks from the aforementioned feature alongside my other picks of the month in a bpm twiddling mix. Although strictly speaking there are a couple in there from January which I missed but had to put in due to their magnificence (two tracks from Todd Terje’s “Its The Arps” EP, highly recommended for any person ever). Enjoy.

boy 8-bit, red-headed beacon of electronic wonder.
at one with computers, he started out his musical journey using 8-bit amiga computers aged 15 (hence the name boy 8-bit) and he now creates stunning pieces characterised by bass, breakbeats and seamlessly chopped up vocals and spanning a multitude of electronic genres. few artists have been so consistently incredible throughout the last year or so. the suspense is killing me ep was one of my favorite releases of last year and i love almost every one of his remixes. the best…………its hard to decide…..
…..this remix of archangel by burial is definately one of his standout tracks, incredibly powerful without being loud….
…..another cracker, vocals cut and chopped to perfection then washed into a sea of bass!!!….
…this song sounds like stars talking. amazing!
….and there’s a whole load more vital tracks including a remix of boy 8-bit by jack beats (the first jack beats song i heard way back in may 2008!!) and an original tracks of his…..all outstanding electronic music. enjoy.
…….catch him at fabric tonight if you’re quick enough and buy the suspense is killing me ep!!!! it’s worth it! get it (((here)))) and his myspace is constantly updated with e-treasure…..
