CdV P067: Best of 2013 – House

2013 found house stretched to the limit. At one extreme are artists like Ex-Pylon and the roster of 100% Silk making ecstatic, rough-edged and casual lo-fi tracks, while at the other end Mr. Tophat & Art Alfie amongst others purvey a more glamorous and commercial style with bigger bass and straighter edges.

P032: Sex special

It may be time to send in your tax return, but there’s only one thing on our minds at Cabeza de Vaca and Scanner FM: sex. This week we pay tribute to the second best thing in the world after tax havens, dividends and creative accounting. Starting seductively with the Modernist, we come all too quickly to the happy finish of Terre Thaemlitz with plenty of bump and grind on the way courtesy of several memorable 12 inches from the archives.

P031: Mark Fell special

English producer and conceptual sound artist Mark Fell has been challenging the process, structure and purpose of electronic sound since the late 90s. Solo he has played in art galleries, toyed with house and built nanoparticle-powered random music. With Mat Steel he has sculpted glitch mobiles and rhythmic networks under the name SND and more recently they have cut and paste together a new form of polyrhythmic house under the Sensate Focus name. On Cabeza de Vaca this week we follow the evolution of a track, from its origins in the chord-driven house collaboration with DJ Sprinkles (Terre Thaemlitz), via the fluxing and phasing dancefloor of Sensate Focus and then into the solo atomic world of the sentielle objectif actualité.
