The new Gorillaz album is a “party for the end of the world” following Trump presidency

Pusha T claims the band predicted the reality TV star’s election triumph.

Gorillaz unveiled their new Pusha T and Mavis Staples collaboration ‘Let Me Out’ yesterday – the next track to be lifted from their new album Humanz.

Pusha T later dropped into Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show to chat about the collaboration, during which he discussed some of the ideas behind the album, explaining that when Albarn initially asked rapper to contribute last year, he told him “to conceptualize the album, you know, like the album’s a party for the end of the world, like if Trump were to win.” This was spring 2016 – Trump’s presidency was barely even an imagined horror at that point, let alone a reality.

fabric london to reopen

fabric to reopen after striking deal with Metropolitan police and Islington council

Highbury Magistrates Court has today approved the agreement.
London’s fabric nightclub will reopen soon.

After it emerged that the club was in talks with Islington council and Metropolitan police to have its license reinstated, an agreement was rubber-stamped today at Highbury Magistrates Court. The agreement will see fabric reopen with a new set of licensing conditions. The exact reopening date has not been decided.

Philip Kolvin QC, one of the lawyers who’s been representing fabric since its license was revoked in September, told the court that fabric “has always set about trying to lead the industry,” and has engaged in a “root and branch reappraisal” of its operating procedures.

The 38 new conditions in the agreement have been outlined by fabric and the police in a joint statement, which you can read in full below. They include the use of a new ID scanning system, enhanced searching procedures, physical changes to the club, and lifetime bans for anyone found in possession of drugs or attempting to buy drugs in the club.

Architecting vs. Finding a Cultural Identity: An Interview with Dubbel Dutch

Marc Glasser, aka Dubbel Dutch to many that do not know him personally, has been a stalwart of the underground music scene since his first proper releases as a producer in 2009. Since his initial prominence, he’s worked with dancehall legends, from remixing Vybz Kartel and leaving a memorable stamp on Popcaan’s debut record, performed around the planet, and released music with labels such as Mixpak and Unknown to the Unknown. Glasser’s respect and admiration for global music styles, including dancehall, cumbia, and South African house, combined with a knowledge of classic UK funky, jungle, and hardcore tropes, help begin to explain his appeal to listeners around the world.

Shake! gave us at DRAW the chance to interview Glasser for takes on his influences, the dynamic nature of the electronic and club music scenes, and his life as a traveler. The timing for Shake’s show with Dubbel Dutch on November 4th, with Doctor Jeep and Fens warming up, couldn’t be better, because we’re bringing his Mixpak cohort, Murlo, to Good Life next week on November 10th.

Interview by DRAW Boston (somekid & Insha)

DRAW: First off, thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions from us. To start off, outside of the musical tastes you grew up on and became associated with at the beginning of your career, what are other specific sources of influence for you — be it environments or a type of media? Are there specific creators who have been a source of inspiration for you recently?

DUBBEL DUTCH: I like watching these “10 hours of waterfalls” 4K nature compilations on YouTube while I work. They remind me of those giant 70s era “moving” waterfall pictures you see hanging up in Chinese restaurants in NYC. Psychedelic drugs and meditation are a big source of inspiration for me outside of media, they let me access ideas that are less ego driven or all about me and give me a sense that anything is possible. Recently I’ve also been into the deserts around Los Angeles. I’m inspired by them because despite the extreme conditions, everything adapts and finds a way, and there’s an unrelenting struggle of hope and survival that’s at the center of everything I do.

SHAKE: MIX 012 – Doctor Jeep (All Breakbeats Edition)


Note from the artist:
For this mix I wanted to do something a little different and gave myself a theme to work with – only using tunes that strongly incorporate a breakbeat in their rhythm section. I find it much more difficult to organize a set this way (as opposed to my standard strategy of just tossing in a bunch of new stuff and hoping for the best), but it keeps me fresh. I find breakbeats weirdly hypnotic and just love the loose groove they provide. The mix contains some brand new and unreleased tunes from myself, alongside a few 90’s rave tracks (and new bits from classic artists like 2 Bad Mice). Shoutout to Dubbel Dutch too for “Throwback” – that was the first vinyl I ever bought! – Doctor Jeep
