Welcome to Frank Fridays, where every time out we let a professional let you know what you should be listening to this weekend and beyond.
Coming out of Cleveland, artist v1984 recently released his Becoming N(one) EP via Glacial Industries (formerly known as Glacial Sound). The future-minded electronic music composer is currently touring Europe. He will be performing in Dublin, Manchester, and Bristol in the coming weeks.
Abu Hajar, Halil Altindere & NGUZUNGUZU, “Homeland”
This is the politically charged anthem of the summer, executive produced by Total Freedom. This track is part of a compilation for the ninth edition of the Berlin Biennale, whose songs will be released throughout the summer on limited edition vinyl.
Rabit, “Cruel Winter”
I’m at some random coffee shop in Berlin right now. It’s hot and humid, much like this disruptive edit of Kanye’s “Cruel Winter” by Rabit. I don’t listen to Kanye, but when I do, it’s through the filter of this Houston producer/composer.
DJ Scream (featuring 21 Savage, Juicy J, & Young Dolph), “Lit”
Que, “Too Much (v1984 remix)”
This remix of mine was first featured in Kuedo’s phenomenal mix for Truants (check it out if you haven’t yet, it is a timeless mix in my opinion). Kuedo along with Joe Shakespeare run a truly unique label called KNIVES, which aims to encompass visual art/design and genre defying sound. I’m elated to be presenting my second body of work with them.
