Last month we headed to LA for a special Boiler Room x Ray Ban session. We brought Konshens and Popcaan’s DJ, Creep Chromatic, all the way from Jamaica, and we published a special zine in praise of soundsystems. It was a night to remember. You can now watch or listen to all of the sets from the night, or see all the photos here.

Stream Wildlife! Live on The Lot Radio

Earlier this week, Wildlife! guested on Brooklyn’s Lot Radio, running through some influences for his new record, Patterns, from Lotic to Mica Levi, Tim Hecker, Actress, Mr Mitch, Amnesia Scanner and more.

Announcing Wildlife! – Patterns

Wildlife-Final

We’re proud to announce “Patterns,” the ambitious first official Mixpak release from Swiss artist Wildlife!, to be released May 13th. Although Wildlife! may be best known to the Mixpak audience as a producer adept in exploring the outer fringes of dancehall-tinged club music, “Patterns” is a carefully considered 7-track examination of the principles and constraints of club music. It is undeniably his most uncompromising record to date.

“Patterns” is made up of untrustworthy rhythms, a heavily industrial sound palette and machinic melody evocative of dystopian sci-fi. It is club music broken down into its various components and then deliberately reconstituted into something new. On May 14th, we invite you to experience the record in a physical space: Wildlife! will be translating “Patterns” into an immersive sound installation at SIGNAL Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site specific installation is in collaboration with artist collective Nitemind (who have previously worked with Korakrit Arunanondchai and Tim Hecker) and visual artist Jesse Hlebo.

You can pre-order “Patterns” right here.
