The album, out now on Sublime Frequencies, is Haflat Gharbia: The Western Concerts, is a compilation of memorable performances culled from the Syrian superstar’s many live shows on this side of the world over the past two years.

  • FACT mix 281: John Heckle MP3

    At FACT, we currently run two mixes a week. This might seem excessive, and in some ways perhaps it is, but the intention is to constantly showcase the breadth of the music that we think is worth covering. Take this week, for example. Monday’s mix, FACT mix 280, was a session by Air France, one of Europe’s most brilliant and mysterious pop acts, that perfectly showcased the sleepy-eyed pop aesthetic ...

  • FACT mix 279: Distal MP3

    Last month, FACT featured Distal, an Atlanta-based artist exploring the grey area between house, dubstep, footwork and hip-hop, and unlike many people who operate in so-called grey areas, actually having some fun while doing so. We’re now able to proudly present Distal’s FACT mix. Packed with dubs from his Embassy Recordings label, including a must-hear DJ Assault remix of Boston up-and-comer Whee...

  • FACT mix 278: Global Communication MP3

    FACT mix 278 is by Global Communication. It’s a warm, immersive selection comprised entirely of their own work – as GC and also such aliases as Jedi Knights, Secret Ingredients and Reload – and it takes in deep techno, low-slung hip-hop, sinewy sci-fi electro, ambient jungle and other vectors into the unknown. Having reunited this year after a long hiatus, the duo of Mark Pritchard and Tom Midd...

We were wrong. This year’s ‘Places’ single, a stunning walk through rustic dream-woods, contained all the distant beauty and underlying malevolence of classic Boards of Ca...

Mat Steel and Mark Fell began their collaboration as snd in 1998, and over the last 13 years they’ve cultivated one of the most singular and compelling bodies of work in the history of post-rave electronic music. Their most arresting works have invariably been their self-released 12″s and EPs, the first of whi...

    FACT mix 274 is an intense footwork session by someone who has been instrumental in popularising the form outside of its native Chicago: Mike Paradinas. So hard has Paradinas fallen for juke, for what he describes as its “raw primal energy” and “purity of intent”, it would be fair to say that right now the music forms the backbone of his illustrious Planet Mu label, which began back in the mi...

A founding member of Chicago group Phuture with Spanky and Herb J, the trio’s 1986 single ‘Acid Trax’ didn’t mark the first use of the Roland TB-303′s bass sound in dance music, but it did mark its most significant, se...

    FACT mix 271 is by Roll The Dice. Next month the Swedish duo of Malcolm Pardon and Peder Mannerfelt release a new album, In Dust, on Leaf. The field of instrumental, kraut-inspired analogue synthesizer music is a crowded one, and it’s no mean feat for an artist to distinguish itself within it. But from the emergence of their debut album on Digitalis last year on in, that’s exactly what RTD have done, ...

Growing up in public is tough, but the London five-piece have gone about doing so with dignity, maturing way beyond the promising but fundamentally underwritten and overblown bouffant-gothisms of their 2007 debut album to strike a rich vein of brawny but windswept psychedelic rock on 2009′s Primary Colours, one that they’ve tapped again for this year’s extraordinar...

It’s under this current guise, however, that we’ve found Martin-McCormick most fascinating. Hi...
