He recently curated the friday printworks stage at field day, featuring the likes of leon vynehall, actress and kelly lee owens, as well as curating day one at nuits sonores, and stages at love saves the day and we love green festival, along with outlier shows at de school, amsterdam, montreal and dj dates in são paulo and santiago. looking ahead, he’s due to curate further outlier shows at offsonar and dour festival and to dj at melt festival before heading to north america for more festival dates and a string of headline outlier shows in montreal, chicago, denver, san francisco and brooklyn, featuring support from tokimonsta, dj harvey, derrick carter and mall grab among others.

Floating Points Crush Indies exclusive LP is packaged in a glossy sleeve with exclusive artwork. Both LPs are on black vinyl and include a download code. We're really looking forward to hearing this one, the new full length album from the electronic/techno/jazz legend Floating Points, released via Ninja Tune. His new album feels similarly instantaneous – and vital. It’s the sound of the many sides of Floating Points finally fusing together. It draws from the "explosive" moments during his sets, the moments that usually occur when he throws together unexpected genres, for the very simple reason that he gets excited about wanting to "hear this record, really loud, now!" and then puts the needle on. It’s "just like what happens when you’re at home playing music with your friends and it's going all over the place," he says. Ninja Tune CD | LP Pre-Order
Jordan Rakei Origin Both LPs include a download code. The third full length album from Jordan Rakei. Soulful, intimate and expansive all at once, Jordan Rakei’s third album, “Origin”, cuts straight to the point, in every sense of the word. The melodies are brighter, the sound is bigger and the vision behind it more finely-tuned. Switching up from the highly personal and intimate portrait he painted with 2017’s “Wallflower”, which was a way of grappling with his experience of anxiety and introversion, “Origin” is overtly inspired by dystopian visions of our future - notably Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. “I’m worried that we’re losing a sense of connection,” explains Jordan, with many of the album lyrics exploring technological growth, and how it affects our sense of humanity. For example, new single ‘Say Something’ is “about speaking up for what you believe in”, a call to arms for future humans to stand up against the AI systems which govern a now-dystopian world. It follows recent single ‘Mind’s Eye’, which envisions a future world where malfunctioning tech implanted in the human body has flooded the users mind with projections of chaos. He meditates daily, something he adopted partly in response to his issues with anxiety, and something which has shaped his worldview and informed his writing and production process.

Bonobo Dial M For Monkey Second LP from Brighton's Simon Green (ex of Tru Thoughts, now on Ninja Tune), and it's an absolute gem. He ploughs a similar melodic, semi-acoustic furrow to Lemon Jelly, but with more of a jazz edge, and none of the increasingly annoying whimsy that that duo employ in their music. A perfect mellow, gentle sound-of-the-summer LP. Ninja Tune LP
Little Dragon Lover Chanting EP Little Dragon wanted to bring new music into the world that has an airy and fun lightness to it. “For all the lovers out there, chant along! Dance for peace and unity in this world of madness!” declare the band. Lead singer Yukimi Nagano adds that the EP is about, “The force of love. Not only between two people but the force of love in this universe as the ultimate ecstasy. Whether that is while you’re dancing at a disco forgetting where you are or just staring at the moon on a clear night, it can be anything. A swim in the ocean, a glance at a stranger--it’s a personal individual thing. Call it what you want but we have all felt it. So, embrace the great mystery of everything that your brain can’t grasp and lose track in the most beautiful sense.” Ninja Tune 12"
