Multifaceted techno-chameleon Can Oral — aka KHAN — returns with Who Never Rests, released May 22nd via Cologne’s acclaimed Tomlab label. A bizarre and compelling mash of party pop and rock riffs with bent house and techno roots, Who Never Rests marks Khan’s debut release for Tomlab, and his first since 2001’s No Comprendo on Matador Records. Who Never Rests expands on Khan’s gutter hustler persona whilst incorporating the wildly eclectic disco house styles that informed his recent Captain Comatose project on Playhouse. Think Roxy Music bumping uglies with Chuck Berry and The Knife and you’re halfway there. Khan will be performing the new material during a string of European dates with his new acoustic trio, Khan of Finland.
Keytar-rocking electro master COPY has announced the forthcoming release of his sophomore album, Hair Guitar, due May 29th on Portland’s beloved Audio Dregs label. COPY’s signature melodic electro-house sound has already garnered fans such as Lovefoxxx (CSS) and Tim Sweeney (DFA) and drawn comparisons to like-minded producers such as Justice and Ratatat; Hair Guitar’s more dancefloor oriented, glowstick-friendly vibe should only grow the love. A mixtape featuring 8-bit reworkings of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony hits such as “Tha Crossroads” and the appropriately ravey “Ecstacy” has recently been circulating as well. The title? Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-N-Copy. Of course.
