Each cabinet is precisely matched so that each speaker in the pair is indistinguishable from the other. The speakers move easily together through the factory. Each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that the Heritage series speakers leave the factory as a meticulously crafted set.

Crime CutzThe new EP Crime Cutz is the first new original Holy Ghost! music since the NYC-based duo of Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel released their sophomore album 2013's Dynamics.
As with most of their catalog, Crime Cutz benefits from Holy Ghost!'s insistence on tactile instrumentation with live drums recorded over the track to accelerate its tempo. The duo are quite methodical in their output--shimmering bursts of disco, synth-pop, and lingering grooves--but that doesn't mean Holy Ghost! is not prodigious.
Over nearly a decade, they have gone from being DFA's rising sons to triple threats: indefatigable DJs, producers remixing new life into the work of Cut Copy and Katy Perry alike, and inventive musicians who've released countless original singles. They're again adding to their thinking-man's dance repertoire with the vibrant Crime Cutz EP out on DFA Records.1. Crime Cutz

OperatorAfter a 5 year hiatus, Canadian electronic music producers MSTRKRFT (Jessi F. Keeler & Al-P) are back. Driven by distorted drum beats, hauntingly hypnotic synths, and booming cinematic soul, OPERATOR immediately captivates. "It's probably the most acurate reflection of how we work on stage," says Jesse. "We had to be very creative with very few elements. It took time to figure that out".
2011 was the last time we heard from MSTRKRFT with the release of the single "BACK IN THE USSA", following their Juno Award-winning debut album THE LOOKS in 2006. MSTRKRFT have released official remixes for everybody from KATY PERRY and KYLIE MINOGUE to WOLFMOTHER, Justice and Bloc Party. 2009's FIST OF GOD boasted collaborations with the likes of John Legend, Ghostface Killah, E-40, N.O.R.E., Lil' Mo and more as it predicted an eventual crossover between hip-hop and electronic music on the horizon.1.

Tough LoveJessie Ware first entered our consciousness as a breath of fresh air amidst the then current climate of female pop back in 2012 with the release of her
delicately soulful debut album 'Devotion'. Recorded with little fanfare in low-key sessions with Dave Okumu of The Invisible, it became one of the most
critically acclaimed albums of the year, lauded by everyone from Pitchfork to Heat Magazine and nominated for the Mercury Prize. As a solo artist she
was also nominated for two Brits in 2013- Breakthrough and British Female. Plaudits were followed by an ever-expanding fanbase, meaning Ware was
constantly on tour as she gained millions of new devotees from across the world. The mania of Jessie's schedule that ensued post release of 'Devotion'
poetically led to the creation of her already brilliantly received lead single from the new album 'Tough Love'.
The record's executive producers are BenZell (a new production duo made up of PMR labelmate Two Inch Punch and Katy Perry and Ke$ha super-producer Benny Blanco). You can hear the leaps in production and songwriting that come with experience and an expanded team. While the record still
draws on the suave, svelte palette of synths and bass heard on 'Devotion', they're combined with more confident choruses and lush arrangements.
Jessie's stunning vocal is brought to the fore - it often feels she's whispering right in your ear.
'Devotion' collaborators Dave Okumu and James Ford worked with Jessie again, but there are also a few household names on the record this time
around. Miguel, who had previously worked with Jessie on her remix of his track "Adorn", wrote with her on a string of sessions in the US. A long cry from
her makeshift studio in Okumu's Lewisham front room, he would bring R&B royalty in to hear their work - J.Cole could be seen poking his head round the

"She's a cheeky one, but the up-and-coming pop star has a charm that's hard to resist.

Long Live The AngelsLong Live The Angels is a mesmerizing journey through the triumphs and tragedies of the last four years of Emeli SandÉ's extraordinary life. Exultant in its delivery and bold in its intent, the record is steeped in an unreserved sense of freedom and self-discovery. It will be released on November 11 via Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.
It's from that feeling of freedom that new single "Hurts" was born, an uplifting track brimming with heart and soul. "This entire album is about me not holding back and not censoring myself, and 'Hurts' is an explosion, it's just real talk," explains SandÉ. A lot has happened to SandÉ in the four years since the resounding success of her critically acclaimed number one record, Our Version Of Events. Not only was it the biggest selling album of 2012 and second biggest selling album of 2013 in the UK, but it was also certified 7x platinum, spent seven non-consecutive weeks at No.1 and exceeded The Beatles' previous record by spending 63 consecutive weeks in the top 10 and selling over 4.6 million copies worldwide.
The multi-instrumentalist initially made her mark as a songwriter in the UK urban scene via acts such as Wiley, Wretch 32 and Chip, later becoming a highly sought-after writer for a wide array of international acts including Alicia Keys, Rihanna, and Katy Perry. As 2013 came to a close, SandÉ was exhausted and unable to ignore the strain it was putting on a number of close relationships, "Sounds a bit dramatic but I just wanted to disappear. I just had this overwhelming sensation and realization everything had to stop," she reflects, "And then slowly it did."
Recorded in New York, L.A, London, and Oxford, Long Live the Angels crackles with energy and a sense of euphoria for both listener and artist. Certain tracks may be slower in spirit, but are dynamic in delivery, "I made sure the production wasn't overworked," Emeli points out, "And I really went for it vocally!" SandÉ's outstanding voice sits at the heart of the record, underscoring the singer's mastery of both technique and form but also her natural intuition as a vocalist. Opening track "Selah", a short poem backed by a choral choir sets the tone, written solely by SandÉ during a time of reflection; it's a powerful and poignant introduction to the album.
Next up is the sensational "Breathing Underwater", which SandÉ describes as "the ultimate journey in rebirth and self-discovery." The super stripped back "Give Me Something" is a wondrous take on keeping the faith despite the odds being stacked against you, and the beautifully melodic Shakes is a piano and strings-led masterpiece. "Garden" harks back to SandÉ's urban roots, written and produced in London with Jay Electronica, who also features on the track. It's a reminder that Emeli's influences are as much R&B and rap as they are singer/songwriter. "Lonely" is a long hard look at love and has the feel of a track made on a summery late sixties afternoon. "Sweet Architect" (Johnny Coffer and Mojam) is the show-stopping centerpiece punctuated by the most remarkable choir.
Towards the close of Long Live the Angels, we witness a jubilant SandÉ experiencing the hopes of new possibilities; "Every Single Little Piece" is a stirring mid-tempo ballad, with a huge chorus and soul-stirring strings and the uplifting "Highs & Lows" is a dedication to her family, her history and her heritage.
Long Live The Angels marks a brand new chapter in SandÉ's life, "I'm proud of my first album and thankful for the experiences it gave me. But I'm so much happier with my new album and with where I am in life."LP 1

WARB-ELE-1952xMarina and The Diamonds
Electra HeartMarina and The Diamonds second album, Electra Heart, is not so much a creative leap forward, more an Olympian pole-vault over the bar of talented-newcomer into the global amphitheater of a cultivated Classic.
Two years on from her top 5 debut The Family Jewels (300,000 copies sold), the self-styled avant-garde D.I.Y artist has detonated her own experimental past and landed feet first in the future with Electra Heart, a stunningly ambitious, seamless, cohesive and confident sonic pulsar spinning between electro-pop euphoria and come-down melancholia. The album is produced by a cache of old school and A-List producers: Dr Luke (Katy Perry) and Liam Howe (Sneaker Pimps) but mostly (9 out of 12 songs) Greg Kurstin (Lily Allen, Kylie) and Rick Nowels (Madonna, Stevie Nicks, Lykke Li). A hook-packed stunner with the sonic ambition of a one-woman Depeche Mode, her onetime theatrical vocals now effortlessly soar between spectral, commanding and towering power-pop, finding her vocal identity in an album about a loss of it.
Electra Heart is a thematic riot, a British Eccentric, 21st Century concept caper where the album title represents a series of female archetypes, not so much an alter-ego as a beautifully-constructed prism, through which Marina projects a series of meticulously-realized female characters as a foil for telling her story, the one about mismatched lovers.
Electra Heart marks the sophomore release from Marina and the Diamonds, aiming to make a big impact in the US as Marina breaks the mold with her Americana-ode to pop music and cultural stereotypes.1. Bubblegum Bitch

REDD-FIV-4613xThe Dirty Heads
Dirty HeadsPressed On 180 Gram Translucent Orange Vinyl
While most bands reserve a self-titled album for their debut, the Dirty Heads, held off for an album deserving of the moniker. The band found one, in their fifth studio release, a total culmination of their signature sound. Drawing on the alternative rock, hip-hop, folk and reggae sounds from albums past to create something elevated and exciting. The band worked with top multi-genre producers such as Da Internz (Rihanna, Nicki Minaj), Drew Pearson (Katy Perry, Zac Brown Band) David Kahne (Lana Del Rey, The Strokes), and Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Diplo).
The diversity of the production on this project is a true testament to the Dirty Heads versatility. With this album you can expect the pure Dirty Heads sound at its finest--a perfect blend of hip-hop and reggae, says vocalist Jared Watson. We have songs that range from summer anthems, songs you can vibe out to, and songs that really challenge you to think further. It's everything the Dirty Heads stand for and what we've become up until now.
The band purposely created an album to serve as the perfect playlist for both Day and Night. The first half of the record offers fans the perfect summertime fun playlist, while the second half offers a mellower vibe, reminiscent of a relaxed summer night with friends.
In a world where music listeners no longer listen to albums cover to cover but rather discover their favorite songs from playlists on platforms like Apple Music or Spotify, we chose to curate a playlist for our fans with our new music says Watson.1. That's All I Need

Completement FouYelle's third album will be released on the hit-maker's own Kemosabe Records and the team-up makes good sense. Though these Frenchies may not have one of the household names we're used to seeing next to that man's handle (Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, Britney Spears) they've long possessed an originality of voice and strength in songwriting that transcends whatever their trappings. Of course, they see it a bit differently. "We just do things we love," says Yelle, nÉe Julie Budet. "This is the only rule we have. At the end of the day this is what makes Yelle: Spontaneity."
And Yelle once again make an album that is pure Yelle. Complètement Fou is equally wild and wry, celebratory and melancholy, sensual and strange, forceful and full of fun. Cofounder and key composer GrandMarnier (Jean-François Perrier) laid down the frame for each song. Then Luke and his ace team - Oliver, Cirkut, Kool Kojack, A.C, Billboard, JMIKE, and MadMax - amplified what was already there instead of inventing a new identity. Collaboration was new territory, but it was the perfect path forward to advance the bouncy, synthesizer-rich sound of 2011s Safari Disco Club.
Look no further than the titular track to hear that growth in action: "Complètement Fou" opens with chopped rave keys, round sequencer blips, a mighty low-end kick, and playful effects à la Basement Jaxx. Then comes Yelle's voice - a transcendent thing that compliments those lush electronics so well. While "Coca Sans Bulles" tows the dark/light line between '80s electro oddness and Daft Punk disco, "Jeune Fille Garnement" slinks/surges like the Knife's freaky outrÉ techno. "Ba$$in" swirls rap with Eurodance; "Dire Qu'on Va Tous Mourir" puts R&B through a Oneohtrix filter.
And then there's "Moteur Action," a song whose summer breeziness suggests a top-down highway ride, oversized sunglasses on, scarf trailing behind. Though knowing Yelle, the lyrics aren't so blithe as those ebullient oohs might have you believe. Our heroine explains the album's primary themes as "relationships, love, bodies, dance, and sensuality, but also death." Ecstasy prevails in parts too. We'll let you seek your own translation of "Nuit de Baise," but "Florence en Italie" was inspired by Stendhal Syndrome, which causes viewers of particularly moving art to swoon and pass out.
Yelle sought a lyrical partner for Complètement Fou as well: "a French dandy called JÉrôme Echenoz," in her words, though he's best known as Tacteel (of TTC, for those who remember the details of Yelle's 2007 debut, Pop Up). "We used to do everything by ourselves," she says, "but we wanted to open the circle this time around because we love people!" She insists there are no direct dis songs in the vein of "Je Veux Te Voir," only "some winks here and there not personal, more about society." To wit, she counts Votaire's monumental 1759 satire Candide among the LP's influences.
At the heart of Yelle today is the same spirit that brought the pair formerly known as Julie and Jean-François together, as great friends, in 2000. They initially called their project YEL - an acronym for "You Enjoy Life" - but the exuberant, feminized, Francofied shout they've taken for a moniker suits them perfectly. We yell when we are happy with the world and we yell when we're pissed off at its ways. But we probably yell our best when we're complètement fou.
