Ryan Hemsworth will embark on a tour of Europe starting at the end of this month.
The Canadian artist has been on quite a hot streak since we profiled him for a Breaking Through feature late last year, including a well-received EP on Wedidit and an appearance on Friends of Friends—not to mention countless remixes. He's made that splash with his distinct take on hip-hop, which blends ambient and ethereal melodies with trap percussion, and he's especially infamous for his bootleg edits of pop and R&B tracks, like last year's breakout remix of "Thinking About You" by Frank Ocean.
He'll make his next trip to Europe under the banner of One Man Boy Band. His first stop will see him land in Copenhagen for Distortion festival on May 29th, before hitting Paris and Liege in the following days. On June 1st, he'll play an RBMA-sponsored show in Warsaw with Lapalux, and then he'll open for Toro Y Moi in London at KOKO on June 4th. From there, he'll hit Edinburgh at Sneaky Pete's, followed by a show in Amsterdam at Trouw on the 7th. His final date is an appearance at The Playground Festival in London, taking place on the 8th at Brixton Academy.

Subject will mark its six birthday from June 1st through to the 3rd.
The night has been taking place at various venues in Dublin usually bi-weekly. Most recently they've found themselves a home at The Twisted Pepper. The promoter's agenda is simply stated: "Disco.House.Techno." Over the years they've had guests from all over that spectrum, including Marcel Dettmann, Kerri Chandler and Neil Landstrumm.
Their birthday will take up a whole weekend (plus a Monday), starting on June 1st at The Twisted Pepper with Berlin-based hardware fetishists Analogue Cops, who will perform live (and who were the focus of a Label Of The Month feature back in 2011). Dublin's DJ Kormac will support with an audiovisual set.
The next night at the same venue, Chicago veteran Green Velvet—also known for his classic hits under the Cajmere moniker—will headline, along with locals Mr. Rossworth and Joe Morrissey. The party will continue into Monday morning with an afterhours that starts at 7:00 AM, this time at the Dark Horse Inn. Panorama Bar resident Tama Sumo is billed for that one, with other lineup details still under wraps.
Tickets for the two Twisted Pepper parties are available on Subject's promoter page.

Polish festival Unsound has revealed first details of its 2013 edition, which will take place October 13th through 20th in Krakow.
The annual event is renowned for its adventurous and experimental lineups, which generally include a range of specially commissioned collaborations, live shows and other projects. This year sees Robert Henke, AKA Monolake, present his Lumiere live show for the first time, while Polish artist Stefan Wesolowski will launch his Liebestod album. There are also several Polish premieres, with Earth, Karenn, seminal dub techno outfit Porter Ricks, Tropic Of Cancer, Pharmakon and Golden Pudel resident Helena Hauff all performing in the country for the first time. Footwork artist RP Boo will make his European debut.
Other acts announced include DJ Qu, Fire!, King Midas Sound and Stellar OM Source, who recently spoke to RA about her album for RVNG. Organisers say more names will be added to the bill in the coming weeks and months.
Each year the festival has a theme, and in 2013 it will be Interference. As the organisers explain: "This relates to the physics of sound, including the overlay of varied sound waves and rhythms, distortion, disrupted audio, sonic disturbance, and the act of obstructing or impeding. More than ever before, these elements are used in a wide range of contemporary music, from the developing noise scene to ever-evolving club music."
Though Unsound's home remains in Poland, it is continuing to expand: earlier this year it held events in Adelaide, Australia, and there's also a London showcase planned for later in 2013.

Synkro and Indigo have launched a new label called Electro Magnetic Fields.3 Comments
The new imprint was started by the same duo behind Mindset. EMF is intended to increase the output from their local scene of Manchester friends and producers, without the aid of a distributor and with self-designed artwork and release schemes. Founder Indigo told RA via e-mail that Electro Magnetic Fields is intended to combine genres and move into new territory, calling it a "niche sound... fusing deep sub bass with technical rhythms, percussion and really clean percussion."
The first release will come from UK producer eleven8, a digital-only EP available through the label's BandCamp page. Future release formats for the imprint are still up in the air, and may include physical runs as well as digital BandCamp releases. Other artists on the books for EMF include Versa, Newcastle's Edmondson and dubstep producer Biome. There are also plans to turn Electro Magnetic Fields into a club night, but there are no concrete details yet.
02. Another Mile
04. Just Passing Through
EMF:001 is available now on Electro Magnetic Fields.

Reports have come through that US artist Anthony Moore, AKA Romanthony, has died, with the cause yet to be determined.69 Comments
Although no official statement has been released, posts on social media from artists close to Moore, including Boys Noize and Eve Angel, have confirmed the news. "it is so sad," Boyz Noize tweeted late last night. "Romanthony and me were working on such an amzing song together. he said it was the best song he had ever written."
"Our Music Industry has lost yet another pioneer and music legend," Daone Remmidy (Eve Angel) posted on Moore's personal Facebook page. "I am deeply saddened to Announce the Passing our my Label Owner, Producer, Manager, and Family. Our Beloved World Renowned DJ and Producer Romanthony has passed away. What a great run we had Roman gave me my first break into the Music Industry and introduced me to the world, as Eve Angel. We were working on an amazing project. I will miss him and he will forever remain in my heart. We had a 20 year stint together and he will never be forgotten."
The cause of Moore's death is yet to be determined. Both his Wikipedia and Discogs pages have listed the date of his death as May 7th.
Moore was well-known for his work alongside Daft Punk, for whom he recorded vocals on the tracks "One More Time" and "Too Long," and a long line of singles and albums. He began releasing music in the early '90s, and went on to record such classics as "The Wanderer" and "Let Me Show You Love."

93 Feet East is set to reopen.82 Comments
A raid on the London club this past December resulted in the revocation of its alcohol and entertainment licence, after police arrested nine people, including two on suspicion of drug dealing and five for possession of drugs. As we reported in December, the raid was part of Operation Condor, a widespread police focus on licensing offences, and saw a total of 175 officers descend on the Brick Lane venue.
"We are delighted to announce that on 17th May 2013, Thames Magistrates' Court allowed 93 Feet East's appeal against the decision of Tower Hamlets council on 7th January 2013 to close 93 Feet East," read a statement on the club's Facebook page. "93 Feet East, which has been at the heart of Brick Lane's evening economy since the year 2000 as part of The Old Truman Brewery, is free to reopen immediately."
The venue, which hosts both club nights and live music performances, has been home to parties such as the popular Sunday event Fuse.

Permanent Vacation will release a collection profiling defunct German imprint Brontosaurus on May 31st.6 Comments
The label was originally founded back in 2006 by Thomas Sabrowsky, Lauer and Christian Beißwenger (aka CB Funk, The Citizens Band, and one half of Arto Mwambé). As hinted by the name Brontosaurus, they strived for a somewhat raw and primitive sound—what the press release describes as "proto dance music long after its [emergence]," achieved through a focus on hardware. Ceasing operations in 2010, Brontosaurus could be seen as the unofficial precursor to Live At Robert Johnson, the imprint based inside the Frankfurt club of the same name and featuring many of the same artists.
The self-titled compilation will come in two formats: an eight-track double-LP on vinyl, and a digital version containing an extra 16 tunes. It hosts many of Frankfurt's biggest techno and house names, including Lauer, Beißwenger under the Exile Missile alias, and their productions together as Arto Mwambé.

The original After Dark compilation introduced the world to Italians Do It Better's indelible sound, which infuses Italo disco with bits of indie, post-punk and experimental music. It had been out of print for some time before Johnny Jewel, the label's musical mastermind, posted a remastered version of the compilation to his SoundCloud late last year. Those familiar with the first After Dark will see some familiar names names turning up on 2—Jewel-fronted groups like Glass Candy, Chromatics and Desire are all here—plus newcomers like Appaloosa and Twisted Wires. No word yet on a physical release. Check out the video for Chromatics' contribution, "Cherry," below. The album and tracklist was originally announced last July, but never actually materialized on its supposed October release date.

Absurd Recordings will create its latest offshoot next month with an EP from Joey Anderson.2 Comments
The LA-based imprint is perhaps best known for its Acid Test series, which invites producers to experiment with the distinctively squelchy sounds of the 303 in unique or different ways. That group of releases has yielded 12-inches from Pepe Bradock, Donato Dozzy and Iron Curtis' Achterbahn D'Amour alias, as well as full-lengths from Recondite and Tin Man. The series was also the subject of one of our Label of the Month features last year.
Avenue 66 is reserved for what label boss Oliver Bristow calls "weird, left-of-centre house and techno." The first release, from New York's Joey Anderson and vocalist Ebony Ugo, lives up to this ethos, with two tracks of dubbed-out, non-linear techno along with a remix from Ukrainian oddball Vakula.
01. Above The Cherry Moon
02. Above The Cherry Moon (Vakula Remix)
Avenue 66 will release Above The Cherry Moon in June 2013.
