Jet Jaguar 'Four' remix #2 James Skylab

I'm releasing 'Four' on Sunday, 1st July.  Over the week I'll serve up each of the 7 remixes that make up half the tracks, along with the relevant original track.  At any time, check in on the Soundcloud set for the album to listen to all the tracks uploaded so far, including a free download of one of the originals, 'Awry Smile'.  You can pre-order the album as a $5 DL or $15 CD too.

James cut his teeth on the empty dancefloors and late night vibes of numerous Wellington bars, before circumstances dictated a move across the ditch. He has now sold out and is living the diamond life in Sydney Australia, where he counts foreign currency in the sun. He also makes house music and varying shades of rhythm driven electronica which he produces under the shadowy umbrella imprint "Afterwork". He is always down for smokey basement sessions and is an alright guy, even if he did write this himself.

Jet Jaguar live set, streaming Thursday night

I'm playing a live set this week on The Session, broadcast on RadioActive.FM.  

9-11PM Thursday night in New Zealand.

That's 6PM Tokyo, 10AM London, and an embarrassing hour for North America.

Not sure how long I'll play for, we'll see!  

The Session has got to be the longest running radio show for electronic music in New Zealand. Always a pleasure.

Upcoming Jet Jaguar gig (night before Anzac Day)

Shit yeah, really looking forward to this.

More details soon.

Disquiet Junto contributions

A couple of weeks back I started contributed tracks to a thing called the Disquiet Junto.  Mark from the Disquiet website has started setting weekly music-making assignments, basically.  

As you can imagine, the assignments are largely focused on making club bangers, with briefs like "got to fill the dancefloor before midnight on NYE".  

OK, not at all.

New Montano & Jet Jaguar albums this year

Just a bit of advance notice that I'm gearing up for at least 2 new albums this year.  Teaser tracks soon.

Montano's 2nd album is still mostly based around making melodic (or at least harmonious!) music mostly from a single field recording per track, but has quite a different mood from our last album.  The first album was when Shanan and I were both living in Melbourne.  This is a much quieter and sometimes moodier affair, and as well as using field recordings from 3 countries has a few "real" instruments too.
