This month Walls follow up there widely acclaimed debut album with another outing on Kompakt in the form of Coracle. Available to pre-order now it is (in the words of Boomkat) 'a glorious set of eight swooning slow trance tinglers... 'Coracle' is as cute as the name suggests, yet perhaps with a keener dancefloor edge than we've previously perceived from their music. The sleek Techno engine which drove this album's predecessor is fine tuned to a Balearic tempo, but with a trustingly Teutonic dancefloor efficiency. From the top of 'In The Midst' the groove steadily purrs at a chugging 110bpm while sublime shoegaze guitar repetitions unfurl across the long, straight road ahead. On cruise control, they pass into the lushly mirage-like 'Heat Haze' before the beat reappears to propel the heart-fluttering arpeggios of 'Sunporch' to almost giddy heights, and we plane across the gazing Techno scapes of 'Il Tedesco'. Down the line 'Vacant' is more blissed, coolly riding the brakes into the elated second wind of 'Raw Umber/Twilight' and the majestic kosmiche disco dissonance of 'Ecstatic Truth'.'
The lead single from the LP recieved a sparkling review from DJ Mag which you can check out by clicking on the image below. Those of you in Berlin this weekend would be well-advised to go catch Sam performing an extended DJ set at Renate. Details here.
You can pre-order the album via Boomkat now, and stay tuned for an exclusive DJ mix from Sam and more DJ sets!

In anticipation of the release of his final ever mix CD (and last in the Robert Johnson mix series) Dixon has been on the promo trail. His contribution to the RA Exchange mix series is a rare opportunity to hear the big man speaking in depth about growing up in East Berlin and his first forays into the rave scene. Listen here. He has also contributed his thoughts to Resident Advisor's 'Real Scenes: Berlin' documentary. Watch below.
Dixon will of course be treating us to a very special 8 hour set on 22nd October. Advance tickets will not last much longer than this so you would be wise to pick yours up now from this link!
On Friday 14th October we are honoured to welcome Paul Rose, better known as Scuba, to take over the decks of Plastic People for the evening in celebration of his contribution to the revered DJ-Kicks series. As a teenager growing up in London Rose was drawn to experimenting with computers, leading to an interest in techno, then drum n bass. Upon moving to Bristol to go to university he began a night called Hotflush, the name he would carry over to his label upon moving back to London in 2001. He quickly found himself in the midst of the burgeoning dubstep scene in the capital, in large part due to a residency at FWD;, with his own productions recieving support from many of the key players.
Eight years since his label's inception however, Rose is ever keen to emphasis his reluctance to be pigeonholed, and Hotflush has long since transcended the bounds of lazy genre labels to becoming nothing less than a go-to shop for forward thinking electronic music of all shapes and sizes. In the last two years alone Hotflush has been responsible for bringing us Joy Orbison's Hyph Myngo, the widely praised Mount Kimbie LP, and other widely diverse bass mutations from the likes of Pangaea, Sigha, Roska, and George Fitzgerald.
Now living in Berlin, Paul will be bringing us a taste of his regular Sub:stance night at Berghain to the intimate confines of Plastic People, a prospect that is even harder to ignore in light of Plastic People's newly installed soundsystem. Scuba will play from start to finish.
Limited advance tickets available now from Resident Advisor HERE
