“DJ/producer Jay Hill, who in a former life was a singer-songwriter in the realm of trip-hop on the West Coast, has been walking the border of house and techno ever since she relocated to the Big Apple in 2012. Now spending time in Philadelphia, where she’s got her own studio, Hill is focusing on production and remix projects. With tracks for King Street Sounds and remixes for the likes of Allies For Everyone under her belt, her remix of Glasys’ “The Pressure” is set for release shortly out on SpinSpin NYC.
Taking the lessons she’s learned opening for Adam Beyer, Ida Engberg, Shonky, Dan Ghenacia, and Kevin Yost, Hill will bring her smooth grooves to Europe this summer by way of a DJ tour that’ll touch down in Greece, the UK and Germany. Ahead of a blockbuster summer she takes control of Big Shot Guest Mix 330, a heavenly 17-track session featuring subterranean excursions from Frankie Deep, Jordan Peak, Pete Moss, Matthias Vogt, Mr. G and Jay Tripwire’s edit of her track ‘Falls the Shadows.'”

“Mustafa Akbar came up in the Eighteenth Street Lounge scene in Washington, D.C. in the mid ‘90s. “The Lounge,” as he calls it, is actually one of Teddy Roosevelt’s old mansions. Perched upon DC’s 18th Street abreast of iconic Dupont Circle, the multi-level enclave became Thievery Corporation’s stomping grounds and home to ESL Music, an incubator of DC funk and soul infused electronica and global force in downtempo music.
It was 2001 when ESL artists Thunderball debuted Akbar signing on their album Scorpio Rising. The album released on September 11th, 2001– imagine how bittersweet, yet somewhat fitting for a D.C. label whose output includes poignant political anthems like “Amerimacka” and “The Richest Man in Babylon.” Notwithstanding, Akbar’s debut on ESL set the stage for features on numerous recordings, collaborating with artists, producers and record labels the world over, including numerous appearances on Kraak and Smaak’s Jalapeno Records. He’s since formed his own group, Nappy Riddem, a conscious reggae band supported by Fort Knox Five’s record label Fort Knox Recordings, who’ve logged yearly performances for DC’s National Cannabis Festival. And today, Akbar has a new single out, “Trust,” debuting on Brooklyn indie music imprint SpinSpinNYC…”

Otodojo is in Berlin with his brother Zetaohm to showcase their Fluxus One Voltage Sequencer at Superbooth17, a conference for electronic music instrument makers and artists.
Otodojo says, “Adding Fluxus One to your modular is an instantly gratifying experience. It highlights the capabilities of your existing gear, and provides you with a fine precision tool to simultaneously control multiple facets of your modular patch. It will help you to bring more pythagorean musicality into your system, or allow you to embrace utter chaos with its modulation and microtonal capabilities. We have worked very hard to bring a concept to life.
Four channels, sixty four steps.
Each output channel can send one gate, and two CV signals. Each CV output range is 20Vpp. Each pitch output is quantized, and will sequence over a user definable 10V range anywhere within the 20V swing. In a world of analog and digital modules, each with unique CV input requirements, the Fluxus One will allow you to adapt the output voltage to the range of the module you are sequencing. Each channel can behave as an independent sequencer, and can be externally clocked from individually. Per channel settings include step length, clock division, scale quantization as well as input modulation mapping. The Zetaohm Fluxus One is available to project backers, starting at US $575, with an expected delivery of July. After that, it’s expected to be priced at $675.”
