Introducing: KingThing

I linked up with Olly KingThing some time ago through the Future Garage forum, though his music is really undefinable.  His productions have been consistently excellent and are featured in his guest mix, on top of this he’s affiliated with Night Audio & Fortified Audio and showcases some hot forthcoming tracks on each.  For a bit more info, check out this brief interview:

SNF: Always have to start with an intro: where are you coming from and how’d you get into music and production?

KingThing: I’m from Chester, a small town in between Liverpool and Manchester (more or less). Like a fair amount of people i’d been making music in various guises all my life, and then one day somebody stuck a copy of Reason infront of me and I’ve never looked back – i liked the fact that it was all me, there was no working with bandmates etc, i got complete control over the music – which is how i like it ;) So im either an introspective genius or an unsociable cunt, i haven’t decided yet. Its been a fun journey trying to figure it out though:p But through that avenue i came to Logic and Ableton, and it all began to get pretty serious when i moved to Leeds about 4/5 years ago – if you like music, you love Leeds.

Mary Anne Hobbs – Wild Angels


Mary Anne Hobbs has a new compilation album coming out on Planet Mu on September eighth and man are the selections excellent and diverse, as expected from both MAH and Planet Mu.  If you aren’t familar with Mary Anne Hobbs then get to know: she runs a hugely influential radio show on the BBC’s Radio 1 and has been called the modern day John Peel.  Forward-looking beats from artists like Hudson Mohawke, Brackles, Untold, Starkey, Nosaj Thing, and many more come together yielding an excellent compilation of 2009 dubstep/hip hop/wonky/robot music.  Exclusive tracks from Gemmy, Teebs, Hyetal, Darkstar, and Floating Points should cause even the most well-educated to take note and Planet Mu nailed it by pressing all of those to 12″ vinyl for the DJs.

Surefire sums it up excellently:

This album represents emerging new Transatlantic sounds progressing
future-forward from dubstep, hip-hop, soul and electronic centered in
Glasgow, Bristol, London and on America’s West Coast. The album
displays many tiers of sound, embodying the best from the artists
often featured on Mary Anne’s esteemed BBC Radio 1 show.

It features pioneering tracks, such as Hudson Mohawke’s ‘Spotted’ and
Rustie’s ‘ZigZag’ which have been highly influential in the
evolutionary process, underground dancefloor anthems such as Starkey’s
‘Gutter Music VIP’, devastating cerebral pieces like Mark Pritchard’s
‘?’ and exclusive tracks from next generation artists such as Teebs’
‘WLTA’ and Gemmy’s ‘Rainbow Road.’

The title ‘Wild Angels’ comes from an expression that Mary Anne used
to describe the crucially influential work of the late Alice Coltrane
on her BBC Radio 1 ‘West Coast Rocks’ special. She said: “Alice
Coltrane plays her harp like a wild angel.”  Planet Mu label head Mike
Paradinas loved it so much he suggested it as a title.

Dom Sum of LuckyMe produced an excellent video to go with an abbreviated mix of the tracks on the comp.  Very nice visualizations here that blend superbly with the audio.  Great package here all things considered.

To accompany the compilation release Mary Anne’s doing a US tour north, east, south, and west.  I hope there’s one in your area:
