Chrome Kids Radio Show - October 2013 by Chrome Kids on Mixcloud

Few technical hitches but I think we managed to keep it together. Just a note as we're not very good at asking people to share things but the only reason for doing the show is for these artists to get heard by as many people as possible so if you do dig it then please pass it along for somebody else to appreciate. Once again for those commitment-phobes, here's a little taster of what you'll find in the show.

The news that Om Unit has a new LP dropping on the ever excellent Civil Music label at the end of the month, is made even more exciting with this taster from it, which features Jinadu on vocals.

Relative new kids on the block, BLDG5 have just released a mighty fine compilation called 'Ground Floor', which includes long time Chrome Kids favourites such as Sun Glitters and Free The Robots as well as a bunch of new guys on our radar who have contributed the best selection of tracks we've heard in a long time. Below are some of our favourites but you can grab the whole album here.

We shall definitely be keeping an eye on this label in the future.

We've been waiting a while for the new EP from our boy Until The Ribbon Breaks and although the UK might have to wait a little longer for an official release, his new home in the States has finally seen the release of 'A Taste Of Silver'. This is the latest video from the EP, a collage of Baz Luhrmann's 'Romeo & Juliet'. Of course if you're in the UK and don't want to wait, you can always head to his Soundcloud and pick up the tracks for free..

Frederic Robinson follows up 'Theme Park' with another beautiful beast of a release for Blu Mar Ten. This collaboration with Stray is like racing music for Mermaids and has totally whet our appetite for the full album which is due soon.

In fact a quick check has revealed you can listen to (and pre-order) the whole album, so here it is. We shall be greedily tucking into this later.

Simple Things 2014

This Saturday we shall be touching down at Simple Things in Bristol for one of the best Electronic Music line ups we've seen in the country since... last Simple Things.

Last year we played in Lakota and spent most of the time there listening to the likes of Jackmaster, Throwing Snow, Lunice, Hudson Mohawke and Rustie. Although we were more than happy with that, this year the festival is much more focussed around the centre of the city so it's easier to manoeuvre. Sadly Apparat has been involved in a motorcycle accident (but is apparently recovering well) so has had to cancel the planned Moderat shows but Modeselektor will still be representing hard along with 50 Weapons signings Doc Daneeka and Benjamin Damage.

Although there's far too many artists we want to see there, as well as the above we shall definitely be making an effort to catch Nicolas Jaar, Jon Hopkins, Mykki Blanco, Darkstar, King Midas Sound, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Evian Christ, John Wizards, Ital Tek, Typesun, DJRum, Dam Mantle Jazzy Jeff and our fellow Cardiffians Islet and Face & Heel.
