Melbourne beatmaker Elkkle shares future trap single “Diderot”

 

What is a Diderot?” you might ask. For one, it’s the title of Melbourne producer Elkkle’s latest single but according to textbooks “The Diderot Effect observes the tendency for people to buy things that compliment their identity, and when they buy things that demonstrate a shift in their identity, a spiral of consumption can follow as they seek to abandon anything that no longer aligns with that identity.” Sounds pretty ominous and it’s perhaps a reflection on our consumer culture.

Elkkle’s track is a multi-layered, introspective cut with strong trap influences, recorded in the same old shipping container where Elkkle wrote and recorded the demo vocals for the recent Golden Vessel single ‘Shoulders’, and where he and Woodes created the 2015 Woodes x Elkkle EP.

Stream “Diderot” below and watch the official clip for the track.

FAULT Weekly Playlist: Saro

Los Angeles artist Saro is prepping to release his forthcoming new EP late summer / early fall and recently released the first single “Sky Doesn’t Blue.” Saro’s clear voice cuts through the track like the sun breaking through the clouds on an overcast day, with percussive synths that provide a dream pop atmosphere.

We asked Saro to put together a playlist of what he’s currently digging including SZA and Weyes Blood – take a listen below!

Marie Davidson – Naïve to the Bone

“You can’t listen to this song and not want to move. This has been my go to album for dancing in the shower.”

SZA – Anything

“This song just reminds me of cool. The entire SZA record has been heavily on repeat since its release.”

Perfume Genius – Slip Away

“I’ve been a fan of his for so long and the music gets better with every album.”

Weyes Blood – Be Free

“I once worked out to this song on repeat for 20 minutes without realizing it.”

Jeff Buckley and Elizabeth Frazer

“All Flowers In Time Bend Toward The Sun – This song devastates me every time. It’s a demo that was leaked after Buckley’s untimely death.”

The Smiths – Reel Around the Fountain

“I have read between the lines while listening to this song for so many years. I have no idea what the song is actually about but it gives me a feeling of solidarity.”

Hundred Waters – Jewel In My Hands

“I love the ethereal atmospherics and Nicole’s lyrics are so beautiful.”

ionna Lee – Not Human

“This is the newest from Jonna Lee (Iamamiwhoami). She is one of my favorite performers. I was lucky enough to see her perform with Royksopp this spring. She’s definitely not human.”

Big Thief – Shark Smile

“I just discovered Big Thief and they’re quickly becoming a favorite. The guitar tones are perfect and the vocals are timeless.”

Arca – Piel

“The first time I heard this, the feedback synth made my brain twitch. Now I long for that feeling. Everything about the track is beautifully haunting.”

L’Atitude 13° North Beach & Wellness Festival: Good vibes for the body & soul

If you’re a seasoned festival goer in search of something fresh, or you’re after an antidote to the hedonistic vibes of the British festival season, L’Atitude 13° North Beach and Wellness Festival in Barbados might just be the answer.

The free festival takes place on the beautiful Caribbean island from 2nd to 3rd September and is promising the perfect blend of wellbeing and Bajan beats. More fun than a yoga retreat, better for the soul than an all-night rave, it is a celebration of the quality of life in Barbados that everyone is invited to sample a taste of. From reggae you can’t help but move to being performed on the main stage, to massage and yoga tents, to the BBQ on the beach closing both days, there’s plenty to experience and the party wraps up at 10pm so you’ll even get a good night’s rest instead of clambering through a field of tents in the rain at 3am.

This is the first ever time the festival has been run, but it’s already being hailed as the beach and wellness festival of the Caribbean. Designed for the locals, and bringing together some of the island’s best music stars, fitness instructors and wellness professionals, this is one of the most authentic experiences tourists can have of Barbados.

Serving up feel-good vibes are reggae, soul, and funk artists including Biggie Irie and Debbie Reifer. Biggie Irie is the not-to-be-missed name whose stage presence gets any party started with catchy soca/reggae tunes. Born in the UK and moving to Barbados at the age of three, Biggie Irie has been working in music since 1986 and is a household name across the Caribbean. Debbie Reifer, a relative newcomer, has already won over audiences with her richly soulful voice and smooth R’n’B songs, which have even caught the attention of filmmakers, with her music featuring heavily on the soundtrack for locally-produced, internationally-acclaimed movie ‘Chrissy’.

Other names confirmed on the line-up include David Kirton, DJ D.Luxe, and Israel Lovell Foundation. We guarantee you’ll come back feeling refreshed and restored with a new-found love of Bajan culture and a whole new Spotify playlist to prove it.

L’Atitude 13° North Barbados Beach and Wellness Festival takes place from 2nd to 3rd September 2017 on the Hilton Peninsula and is free of charge, though fees apply to some fitness classes and treatments. For more information visit www.visitbarbados.org

#NoArtistsNoArt – Lights of Soho launch campaign to save Soho as London’s bright, neon beacon of creativity.

 

Lights of Soho, located on Brewer St, London, is spearheading a new campaign entitled #NoArtistsNoArt, supported by local galleries, restaurants and bars around Soho that will remove or cover up every piece of art on their walls – a bleak intimation of what is happening because of the large rises in business rates, pushing out the independent operators in the surrounding area.

 

London Cocktail Club

The team are on a mission to support all creatives, including those in film, fashion, music, art, publishing and design, giving them a platform and venue to promote their work – for free. All profits from the bar, art sales and corporate events is put back into the venue, with the Directors and owners never taking a fee or wage in the two years of its operation.

Lights of Soho itself now needs to expand to create a self-funding, sustainable business, without which it too will struggle to survive.

 

The #NOARTISTSNOART campaign has been created in collaboration with M&C Saatchi and is supported by venues such as Soho House, Quo Vadis, Blacks, The Box, The London Cocktail Club, Cass Art, Balans, Randall & Aubin, Pix, Soho Radio, Save Soho and many others.

 

Blacks

Lights of Soho Gallery opening hours:

Monday – Sunday: 10 am – 6 pm, members only from 6 pm – midnight.

You can donate to the cause at their Kickstarter page here .
