Music | Singled Out

1 Mins read

Industrial techno and darkside DnB do battle with Mark Ronson’s electric funk and the sentimental cheer of Kindness and Robyn.

It’s this week’s Singled Out selections…

Blacknecks – Clubbing

Truss and Bleaching Agent have injected some much needed humour into warehouse techno during their fleeting reign as the shady Blacknecks. After just six white labels they mark their retirement with an eight-track, double vinyl release. Clubbing is the parting shot, a typically punishing electro drum assault punctuated with answerphone messages from the digits on their March-released banger Hotline.

Available now, via Blacknecks (white label)

Om Unit – Touching Down

The opener on Om Unit’s incoming Inversion EP on Metalheadz, Touching Down eases through a lengthy, classical intro before things turn deeper and darker. Chopped drums, techy synths and dungeon bass – this is golden era DnB for time travellers, androids and cyberpunks.

Available now, via Metalheadz

Mark Ronson – Daffodils

Taken from Ronson’s forthcoming album Uptown Special, Daffodils is loaded to the brim with all the funky, electric, disco goodness that we’ve come to expect from the king of pop. Daffodils is one of three collaborations between Ronson and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, with lyrics penned by a Pulitzer prize winner, trippy psych guitar lines and the kind of throbbing groove you’d hear in a ’70s detective drama.

Available January 27, via RCA

Kindness feat. Robyn – Who Do You Love

Another thoughtful song from the appropriately named Kindness. The British born Adam Bainbridge is joined by Sweden’s Robyn for their new song Who Do You Love. The sentimental video, directed by Daniel Brereton, includes all the people that both Kindness and Robyn love. It’s worth watching and should put a smile on even the glummest of people.

Available now, via Female Energy Records

Lemonick – Corolla Knob

What can only be described as some sort of industrial breakbeat techno fusion, Lemonick’s unreleased Corolla Knob was snapped up by TSVI for his guest mix on Scratcha DVA’s Rinse FM show. Hailing from Vevey, Switzerland, this boy will be whipping up a storm when he decides to unleash his tracks upon the world.

Release date TBA
