It’s release week! Since announcing SHALT’s Acheron EP last month, we’ve been aching to get the full project out to you and it’s finally out on digital platforms this Friday (1/29)! Last Thursday, FACT Magazine premiered the second single from the project, “Unconfined”, and spoke with SHALT about artificial life extension, Tim Hecker, and the club-via-noise context of his music. Check out the interview here, “Unconfined” below and keep an eye out on our Bandcamp for the full release on Friday.
One week from today, we’ve got Heterotopia Remixes Vol. 2 on the docket, our third official release and the second volume in our Heterotopia remix series.
The second volume of Heterotopia Remixes has finally arrived, featuring a global collection of artists remixing songs from our debut compilation. With Air Max ’97, Mike G, Riley Lake, Rushmore and Victoria Kim involved, Vol. 2 is a thrilling run through stripped down club forms, a percussive melange that looks to Baltimore as much as it does Bristol. Angular club music has found its way into unexpected places as of late and this collection of producers are leading the way in the admirable charge to discomfit the dance music realm. This volume also features incredible art work by prodigal East Coast artist Terrell Davis (featured in Dazed, New York Times etc.), continuing the trend of reinterpreting the original release’s cover in new and exciting ways.
Out next Tuesday (March 10) via our Bandcamp, Heterotopia Remixes Vol. 2 features a selection of artists from the original compilation, as well as recent Gobstopper signee Iglew, who turned in an engrossing Astral Plane mix a few weeks ago. Check out the track list below and be sure to check back in this space over the next week for more sneak peaks of the tape.

Southern Hospitality is a blog, party, label and crew promoting the very best in hip hop and club music, preferably the bombastic land where the two meet. Rob Pursey and Davey Boy Smith have been imprinting the Southern Hospitality name on just about everything over the past several years, whether that means throwing the best damn rap party in London or releasing wild collaborative efforts from Danny Brown and Darq E Freaker. FACT Mag decided to grab Rob and Davey for their 420th mix and the result is the synthesis of the Southern Hospitality way. Essentially a list of what you should have been listening to over the past year and what you will be listening to over the next, this mix won’t be leaving the rotation for quite some time.
