2017 repress due to high demand and crazy online prices!! santuri s embaire umeme ep got a worldwide premiere from gilles peterson on a never-ending quest to support and exposure far off musical cultures around the world, the next on the corner releases sees them look to uganda. teaming up with santuri (an east african electronic music innovation project) and soundthread (a creative development non-profit), they have worked alongside the mugwisa international xylophone group with modern recording techniques and further re-arrangement on two remixes. the first, by sam jones, was premiered last week by stamp the wax, and today ushers in the second by alejandro mosso. a thudding kick drum at the first beat aims this one straight towards the early evening dancefloor. working in unison with samples from the giant wooden xylophone and conversations between the musicians, serves to place the track back into its original context and is allowed to settle for a couple minutes, before what sounds like a kora or zither brings a far-eastern twist. with the slow-burning, steady elements of a balearic production and the beguiling hypnotism of steve reich s work this is a big worldwide favourite.

the prism is an aluminum cube, small enough to fit in your palm. it was designed by nicolas jaar as a new medium for releasing music. the first release - csa001 - features twelve (mostly) unreleased songs from jaar and other clown & sunset collaborators. the prism is a piece of art in and of itself, its contents beg to be shared. twin headphone outlets encourage connections to the object and between the two listeners. the prism tries to restore physicality to the listening experience. the medium and the method are as important as the music itself. the prism makes you consider how the music is being heard, the way the object feels in your hands, and its potential to foster intimacy between listeners. when the prism is unplugged, a beam of light passes through the empty center, revealing a void. someone is missing.
