      The critically acclaimed group have built this steadfast reputation as one of the UK’s most versatile, creative and prolific acts through a continuing desire to push the envelope, in a manner that is as urgent now as it has ever been.  With a top ten hit, over 80 million YouTube plays and a string of international headline dates ahead of them, things are going from strength to strength for the Beggars.

      NASA’s ‘Voyager Golden Records’ series will be released via OZMA Records 40 years after its 1977 launch into space. The compilation will debut in the form of either a two-CD or three-LP box set on Dec. 1, thanks to a successful 2016 kickstarter campaign led by David Pescovitz of Boing Boing. The fully remastered box set will come with a 96-page book complete with a photographic history of the record series, and liner notes from the series’ original producer, Timothy Ferris.
      Astronomer Carl Sagan assisted in the creation of the ‘Golden Records’ collection, a grouping of sounds reflecting the musical climate of the period. The records contained music from Louis Armstrong and Stravinsky, classical masterpieces from Bach and Mozart, and records of the word “hello” in more than 50 languages should extraterrestrial life forms encounter the series.
      Those interested in pre-ordering the ‘Voyager Golden Records’ compilation may do so via Light In The Attic here. A “Sounds of Earth” grouping of sonic effects from the ‘Golden Records’ series can be streamed prior to the record’s December release.

      I, US & WE – Tryst

      By OzClubbers, in News and Reviews,

      This indie electronic band really grabbed my attention with their new EP, especially this lead single, “Tryst.” Everything from the sound to the visuals is coherent and overall super polished. “Tryst” has a indie/party-dance sound that I would love to get down to live. So give it a listen, and if you dig it, be

      Richie Hawtin’s MODEL 1 has undoubtedly paved the way today’s DJs work behind the decks.
      In MODEL 1’s latest How I Play series, the venerable Carl Cox expounds upon just how the setup changed it all. 
      In near ten minutes, Cox explains his current DJ setup in depth, offering up insight into his preferences of the MODEL 1, his four-deck arsenal with a Traktor, and D2 controllers.
      Cox also expounds upon his early years, “I was a clubber before I was a DJ, so I know what it’s like…I’m able to transmit exactly what I would want to hear on the dance floor. I almost get jealous, because I would like to be on the dance floor when I’m playing certain records, certain tracks, creating certain moments”.
      It’s with these years in mind, and his keen knack for experimenting behind the decks, that he also details just how the mixer makes his life easier, “I don’t know any other mixer that has the ability to go this far in its scope of its frequencies…working and sculpting sound on each channel. There’s no boundaries,” he says.
      Upon wrapping things up, Cox explains just how the mixer and his set-up are more like a musical instrument than a DJ or producer set-up. “It’s the spirit within that driving your creativity, means that you’re playing with heart, spirit, and soul…”

      San Holo x bitbird launch radio series

      By OzClubbers, in News and Reviews,

      Though he’s in the midst of a massive tour, San Holo is making use of what little down time he gets on the road with a new venture: a radio series.
      He’s partnered with Netherlands-based label bitbird for bitbird radio, a series of mixes the producer will be using to share new music and introduce listeners to forthcoming releases on the label.
      “I decided to start this radio show because I always get so excited hearing new music, and this is a great way to share all these new finds with you guys. And, of course, this is going to be a great way to tell you about all the upcoming bitbird releases,” he says in the mix’s introduction.
      The hour-long mix kicks off with a “mega-collab” from San Holo and six other artists, “If Only,” which came out in October. It also features music from Just A Gent, DROELOE, Taska Black and many more.

      German virtual reality gaming imprint EntroPi Games is blending old school technique with new school technology with the reveal of the world’s first vinyl mixing DJ application. The app, dubbed Vinyl Reality, simulates the look and feel of a vinyl DJ setup in virtual reality, equipping the user with two VR controllers and a VR headset, designed with the help of professional DJs. Once inside the app, users are presented with two digitally modeled turntables and a two-channel mixer with volume controls, EQs, and PLF.
      Vinyl Reality even provides a realistic digital record crate next to the booth so users can sift through selects between their mixes. The application allows users to record their mixes and export mixes, and it also supports separate audio inputs, which means we’re likely not too far away from live streamed virtual DJ sets in the near future. What a time to be alive.

      Vinyl Reality is available now.

      Another headlining act has pulled out of boutique festival earthcore, only a day after they lost two artists over alleged payment disputes with the promoter.
      Los Angeles DJ Dirty Audio — who was locked in as a headliner at earthcore’s events in NSW, Queensland, and WA — contacted inthemix via Twitter this morning to say he will no longer be appearing at the festival:

      inthemix has contacted Audio and his managers for further information.
      As we reported yesterday, two of the festival’s headliners — Coming Soon and Phaxe — announced they would no longer be performing at the festival, citing payment disputes with the promoter.
      “The reason for the cancellation is because the owner of this festival didn’t pay us until now, and didn’t even book a flight,” Coming Soon wrote on Facebook. “[This is] after many threats of cancelling us if we will not be patient.”
      Danish artist Phaxe also dropped the news via Facebook, writing: “We are sorry to announce, that Phaxe…has to cancel the Australia tour for Earthcore, as the organizer did not fulfill the terms of our agreement.”
      Earthcore is due to take place between November 23 and 27 in Elmore, Victoria, with additional events taking place in NSW, Queensland, and QA; inthemix has again contacted earthcore founder Spiro Boursine for comment.

      MOS Sydney launched in June, pledging to bring a top-tier line-up through every Saturday night.

      “We will be implementing a forward-thinking music policy and making Ministry of Sound Club a haven for good music and a home for both international and Australian artists to connect with their fans.”
