New "What's In My Bag?" Episode With Electronic Producers Prosumer And Hunee

Hunee Prosumer

Prosumer is one of Europe's most renowned House DJ/producers. He was one of the first DJs to play UK Funky white labels, thus helping to break the left-field genre that takes grime, R&B, Dancehall, Dubstep and mashes it over House music. In 2011, Prosumer released Panarama Bar 03 for the Ostgut Ton label and received rave reviews from dance music critics and scenters alike. DJ/producer Hunee (aka Hunch), originally from Berlin but now based in Los Angeles, has released records through various well respected labels, including Permanent Vacation, Rush Hour and Retreat, to name a few. Both DJs are currently on tour in Europe.

Prosumer and Hunee recently visited Amoeba Hollywood and found some really cool records. It's easy to tell these two guys are vinyl pros and they dig deep in the crates! Hunee first picks up a copy of A Synthetic Life by Chicago's own Hieroglyphic Being. Prosumer follows up with a copy of the 94 East's Minneapolis Genius, which was the first official recording to feature a then unknown Prince. Showing their wide tastes in music, Hunee and Prosumer also pick up El Secreto De LAS 12 by World artist Finis Africae and Folk Jazz legend, John Martyn's One World on vinyl. From Electronica to New Age -Experimental Folk, Hunee and Prosumer find some great stuff at Amoeba!

21 Records for Fall

Aphex TwinSyro

Out Sept. 23

The Internet pretty much exploded when Richard D. James announced Syro, and with good reason. It’s the ambient/electronic artist’s first album in 13 years, and from the sound of the glorious “minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]” (OMG vocals), it’ll have been worth the wait.

Pre-order Syro LP & CD.

Prince to Release Two New Albums in September

Posted by Billy Gil, August 25, 2014 11:25am | Post a Comment

prince art official age lpYes, you read that correctly: The Purple One will release two new albums in September.

Both the previously announced new Prince album, Plectrumelectrum, and the accompanying album Art Official Age will come out September 30. While Plectrum has been in the works for some time now, Gigwise reports after Prince held a press conference in London at singer Lianne La Havas' home to announce the album and a tour in January, it didn't have a release date until now. Plectrum was recorded with the help of his alt-girl group, 3RDEYEGIRL, while Art Official Age is a solo album.

We last heard from Prince when he released the jokey but cool The Breakfast Experience EP last year, with comedian Dave Chappelle on the cover.

Hear the funkadelic "Clouds" from Art Official Age over at Complex.
