Disclosure – “January (Kaytranada Edition)”

The young British dance duo Disclosure pretty much exploded our collective mind with their debut album Settle this year; it’s one of our top five of 2013. And next week, they’ll follow it up with a U.S.-only digital remix collection called, logically enough, Settle: The Remixes. The comp includes producers like Hudson Mohawke, Baauer, and… More »

Lana Del Rey – “Video Games” (Jamie Woon Remix)

Two of the bigger, more divisive names from Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2011 list come together on this remix, in which London dance&B transmorpher Jamie Woon reworks “Video Games,” the luminous breakout single from music-blog flashpoint Lana Del Rey. Woon does a lot of pitch-shifting and bass-dropping without much regard for the atmosphere… More »

Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands of 2011

Last year, right around the time summer turned to fall, we at Stereogum published our list of the 40 best new bands of the year. The idea of a “new” band is a pretty nebulous one, since many of the kids we listed were probably planning out their musical ventures in their basements since they… More »

Jamie Woon – mirrorwriting Premature Evaluation

Someone might have introduced Jamie Woon to you as “the next James Blake.” They have different strengths — Woon the superior falsetto, Blake the better songs. Early into mirrorwriting you’d think they also shared the same sense of restraint. “I’ve acquired a taste for silence” Woon sings on the Burial-co-produced opener “Night Air.” Like that… More »

32 Must See Bands @ SXSW 2011

Come March every year, the same questions are asked, retreaded thought pieces get pitched: What does it mean to have a music industry festival in the decrepit climate of 2011? Does anyone actually get discovered at SXSW? What’s the point of signing to a label? What happened to that taco truck on Red River near… More »

Jamie Woon – “Lady Luck” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

“Lady Luck” shows up on soulful BBC-approved London singer/songwriter Jamie Woon‘s debut album mirrorwriting. Since the release of the Burial-adorned “Night Air,” folks have been comparing him to James Blake: He’s framed as using “forward-thinking production,” “beautifully crafted songs,” and “[a] luminous voice” to create his “dubstep” (or post-dubstep or…) The difference? That “luminous” voice. Woo… More »

Jamie Woon – “Blue Truth”

Following up on this week’s “Night Air” Deadboy remix, here is another shadowy lick of dubstep wooze from from 27-year-old Brit dude Jamie Woon. The melodies go modal, the bridge’s chords discordant, “it’s nothing that you can’t come through” the soulful albeit only half-encouraging mantra residing inside the moody Woon new one. Listen up, download… More »

Jamie Woon – “Night Air (Deadboy Remix)”

In its original instance, post-dubstep Brit it-kid Jamie Woon’s “Night Air” received its midnight shading via production from the inimitable Burial. That backdrop’s swapped for one by the similarly dubstep-steeped Deadboy, whose take on Woon’s soulful, shadowy single joins one by Becoming Real on a new 12″. Deadboy’s is a free MP3 as of today,… More »
