Mark Pritchard – Beautiful People  ft. Thom Yorke

Illuminated by the ambience and stillness of Mark Pritchard’s intoxicating electronic instrumentation, Beautiful People, a collaboration originally released in March, finds Yorke hiding in the shadows once more.

“The original instrumental to Beautiful People is a personal song about loss, hopelessness and chaos, but the message is love and hope,” Pritchard says of the track. “Thom’s contribution to this collaboration captured perfectly what the piece is about. I will be for ever grateful to have worked with such an immense talent.”

Now the track comes with a video, first premiered in cinemas at Sundance and arriving online today via Guardian Music. The eerie imagery created by Polish filmmaker Michał Marczak captures a nomadic sense of isolation, a space-like excursion of Beta Band and Björk-like proportions, set to the gently shuffling bossa nova, and led by the hologram of Yorke as he navigates his way around the misty mountains.

Lane 8 – With Me

Lane 8’s latest tune “With Me” is constructed using the same formulaic structure that has made Lane 8 such a fan favorite. Following last year’s debut album Rise, he has continued to evolve his melodic, emotional, conceptual style of house. While without vocals in a traditional sense, “With Me” seems to tell a story full of twists and turns. Using lengthy instrumental builds, unique bass lines, and echoing succinct distorted vocal loops, Lane 8 keeps listeners engaged throughout. The story gradually comes to an end midway through the song – that is, until the next chapter abruptly resumes at the 4:12 mark.

Kidnap Kid – Mist

Today, the first single from Kidnap Kid‘s forthcoming Brokenhearted EP landed in our library. In “Mist,” the London-based producer and DJ picks up where he left off on his 2012 Alphaville EP, exploring vocal samples from the 1965 science fiction drama from Jean-Luc Godard and bears the same name. Musing, meditative, and almost dark, “Mist” has a cinematic quality that is well communicated through from inspiration to execution.

Pional – Casualty

It takes a lot for an electronic artist to put their own voice into their music, and there are many who would suggest that a large portion of musicians never truly do. This is not, however, an accusation that will long be applicable to Spanish producer and Hivern Discs associate Pional. This September he is set to produce his most honest work to do date, his new EP When Love Hurts.

Despite the bleakness of the title, this is heartbreak through Pional’s lens, which crucially means stretches of luscious, infectious melody threaded through thick, robust grooves. This time around, Pional is putting his voice on line in the most literal sense, actually laying down vocals. The end result is a subtle, moving paean to the aches and pains of love and loss.

Sigur Rós – Heysátan (Amtrac Dub)

What a fitting combination: Sigur Rós and Amtrac — two different music worlds but a sentiment, an aim, that’s one in the same — epic sonic journeys that instill a sense of hope, magic, and love; music that constantly probes the mystery of the unknown, the excitement of uncertainty and exploration; music that pulses and moves one’s heart to stay open to something more.

Amtrac’s remix of “Heysátan” pushes the senses beyond the bend, just a little farther; places where you never thought you’d go, ways you never thought you’d take, only to find love you never thought possible.

This track is the perfect vibe for my feelings today as I spent it pondering the complexity of personal strength, the power of another’s love (or lack of it), and generally, how to remain a functional human when you’re feeling like The Last UnicornI concluded that love is unity within you. Maintain that and partnerships can come and go without consequence. Be the love you want to invite in your life. The rest will fall in to place, naturally.
