Listen: DARKSIDE - What They Say & Gone Too Soon

Bummer.

Sample them below, before both tracks are available on the forthcoming Other People compilation 'Work'. Darkside will play their last show in Brooklyn on September 12.

Fleur & Manu Youtube Playlist

Fleur & Manu Youtube Playlist

Surely by now you've seen Movement's too-sexy-for-youtube 'Ivory' video, a surreal exploration of a young couple's out-of-body sexual experience. This fitting visual accompaniment to the band's arousing sound was directed by French duo Fleur & Manu, whose unparalleled videography includes clips for Gesafelstein, M83, Lykke Li and our own Bag Raiders. Two of the most progressive filmmakers in the game, we asked them to contribute five youtube clips that they've encountered in their research. A twisted sense of humour.

Want To Remix Bag Raiders' 'Nairobi'?

Want To Remix Bag Raiders' 'Nairobi'?

It's open season for budding producers to remix Bag Raiders' latest club single 'Nairobi' after the band blasted this invitation:

We're throwing up the parts for 'Nairobi' on Soundcloud for anyone out there who wants to have a stab at a remix, steal our drums, whatever. Sharing is caring!! Love, Bag Raiders xxx

The gesture doesn't discriminate - you could be Giorgio Moroder or Jane Roe, with the duo hyping a few successful swings on Twitter. Grab the stems and get to work.

'Nairobi' is the lead cut of their latest Club EP, featuring two dancefloor bound originals and remixes by Zombie Disco Squad and Roland Tings. It's now available worldwide through Modular via iTunes and all good digital retailers.

Watch: Beni feat Antony & Cleopatra - Protect

Entropico (Hayden James, Touch Sensitive) have given us a fun video for 'Protect', Beni's 90s house rewind featuring vocals by Antony & Cleopatra, the duo of soulful London voice Anita Blay and Alexander Burnett. The cheeky clip casts Triple J personality and Sydney techno DJ Linda Marigliano in an entertaining take on the weird youtube phenomenon 'Japanese Techno Girl'.

'Protect' is the lead single from Beni's new EP, now available in Australia, UK and Europe through Modular Recordings (buy here), and soon in the US via WIN Music (Duke Dumont, Tiga). Produced with The Presets' Kim Moyes, the dancefloor dynamite is backed by two select remixes - Melbourne heat waves Indian Summer tackle 'Protect' while Canadian house dons Prince Club rework 'Can't Hide'.

Movement Release NSFW 'Ivory' Video and Announce Australian Tour

'Ivory', a standout from Movement's debut EP released earlier this year on Modular Recordings, now has a video. Directed by Fleur & Manu (M83, Gesaffelstein, Connan Mockasin), the NSFW video paints a stark, delicate picture of love and lust, nudity, intimacy and sexuality, of two bodies merging into one like colours running together in a tableau. It's a deep, surrealist meditation on the physical act of love and two individuals perceptions of what that is.

After wrapping their first run of international tour dates last month, Movement are also pleased to announce they'll be taking their evocative soul along the Australian East Coast this September. The tour is on sale now and will be followed by a 26-date US run in support of Twin Shadow's synth-pop, playing venues of up to 3000 people.

MOVEMENT AUS TOUR DATES

Thurs 4 Sept || LAMBDA @ Alhambra Lounge || Brisbane QLD
Fri 5 Sept || Northcote Social Club || Melbourne VIC *Tickets
Sat 6 Sept || Newtown Social Club || Sydney NSW *Tickets
