Swedish furniture and homeware giant IKEA is throwing a 24-hour virtual festival on 16th September 2021.
Black Artist Database (B.A.D.) has launched a series of free production masterclasses for aspiring Black artists, in association with Ableton.
Loraine James, Pan Daijing and Lorenzo Senni are among the names set to play Rewire’s upcoming "offline" festival.
Following an online edition in May, the festival returns to The Hague, the Netherlands across 10th-12th September, as well as 18th September.
Billed "as a reintroduction to Rewire’s usual format," the festival will also host the likes of Sarah Davachi, bbymutha, Laurie Spiegel and Lyra Pramuk in venues including Paard, Korzo and Koninklijke Schouwburg.
Loraine James has released a new single and accompanying video, 'Running Like That'.
The track, which features vocals from Canada-born, London-based singer Eden Samara, is lifted from James' new album, 'Reflection', which is out on Hyperdub on Friday, June 4th.
Samara says the song's lyrics are about being chased by the voices in your head. "I was imagining a car chase between someone and their shadow self," she says.
Loraine James has shared a new track from her forthcoming album.
Titled 'Let's Go', the single is the second track to be shared from James' forthcoming album ‘Reflection’, which was announced in back in March alongside lead single 'Simple Stuff'. The new album follows her 2019 breakthrough LP ‘For You & I’, which DJ Mag crowned as its favourite release of that year.
Bristol experimental pop group Poisonous Birds have invited an array of artists to remix their 2020 EP, ‘We Can Never Not Be All Of Us’.
The group released their EP in August 2020, and have now enlisted artists including Loraine James, ASTRYD, Fever 103° and Delay Grounds to put their own spin on the tracklist, which fused elements of art rock, pop and techno into a maximalist, emotional collection.
Sheffield's No Bounds festival has revealed full details of its return for later this year.
Scheduled from October 15th to 17th, the festival will take place, as ever, at its main Hope Works base, as well as at other venues in Sheffield. DJ sets have been confirmed from the likes of SHERELLE, Ben UFO, India Jordan, Helena Hauff, Batu, Joy Orbison, Anz, Kode9, Juliana Huxtable and Aurora Halal.
Loraine James will release a new album via Hyperdub in June.
Titled ‘Reflection’, James’ new album follows her 2019 breakthrough LP ‘For You & I’, which DJ Mag crowned as its favourite release of that year.
Set for release in June, the album was made in the summer of 2020, and is described as “a turbulent expression of inner-space”, and examines the experience of the past year from the perspective of a young, queer Black woman.
