Bob Moses will play a gig in Vancouver on December 28th.
Though the duo are based in Brooklyn, they first formed the group back when they lived in Vancouver—they met in the parking lot of hardware store Lowe's, as the story goes. They've had a good 2013, touring regularly and releasing a well-received new EP on Scissor & Thread which spawned a late summer hit in "All I Want." They'll round off the year with a show in Vancouver at UnderG studios, a hidden-away venue and a focal point for the city's techno scene. They'll be supported by UnderG regular Briser Gonzalez and Subversive's Caleb Fox.
Bob Moses also have a few upcoming US gigs—one at Miami's Treehouse this Friday, which you can grab tickets for here, and another at a secret location for Cityfox in NYC the next Saturday. The day before the Vancouver show they'll play Monarch in San Francisco (tickets here), and they've also got New Year's Eve lined up for a party in Brooklyn.
Check out a recording of the duo live from this year's Burning Man.

Pittsburgh's monthly Honcho series has revealed the guests for its next four parties.
Honcho happens at Hot Mass, a Saturday-night, Sunday-morning afterhours venue that last weekend celebrated one year in operation. Aaron Clark, one of the founders of Honcho and an all-around scene fixture in Pittsburgh, explains: "This is the one party there that is targeted towards homo dudes, with a focus on underground music from queer DJs and producers who are either making waves with their music, or with other queer parties they're doing in their own cities." The series counts among its previous guests Mike Servito, Honey Soundsystem and Horse Meat Disco.
It'll be the Pittsburgh debut for each of the next four headliners, starting this weekend with seasoned Edinburgh-based house selector Prosumer. January's party will feature another DJ hailing from across the pond, Mr. Ties, known for his wide-ranging sets at Berlin's Homopatik party (he was the subject of an RA feature back in May). In February, NYC DJ Michael Magnan, a resident at 11:11 and Club Shade, will swing through for a set, and Carlos Souffront of Interdimensional Transmissions—from Detroit but now living in San Francisco—will top the bill at March's party. Support at each night will come from Clark and fellow resident and co-founder Edgar Um.
For a closer look at the party, check out Clark's recent interview and "Head Honcho" mix for Butt Magazine.

Blackest Ever Black has unearthed early experiments from Stefan Jaworzyn.Post a comment
A writer and an artist, Jaworzyn has had a colourful musical history. He was a member of William Bennet's seminal noise rock band Whitehouse in the '80s and early '90s, and he also founded the experimental group Skullflower around the same time. He was involved with a number of other musical projects in that time as well, not least of which was Shock Records (a home to Coil and The Dead C among others), but his musical output had gone quiet up until this year, when he revived Shock to release new solo material as well as a collection of work from his archives.
The music on Drained Of Connotation is taken from tapes recorded in 1982 at his Cardiff home using synths and a drum machine. The music is described in a press release as "driving, faintly sociopathic and supremely zoned." The digital version will also come with a bonus noise piece called 'Why Must We Rot," recorded with different equipment from the rest of the batch.
You can hear clips of the LP here.

Art Department are at the helm of BPM001, the first mix in a new series from BPM festival and No.19 Music.3 Comments
BPM mixes will come out twice a year and put festival favorites in the driver's seat. The Canadian duo are regulars at the festival (and also have a hand in No. 19 Music), so they're the logical pick for this first edition. They've brought together quite a range of music for the mix, from the stripped-down house of Oskar Offerman to the floor-filling sounds of Deetron. No. 19 artists Eric Volta and Louie Fresco also appear prominently, and one of Art Department's own tracks also features. The mix drops on January 27th, just a few weeks after the 2014 edition of BPM wraps up in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

02. Oskar Offerman & Edward - What Have We Become
03. Maher Daniel & Jon Charnis - Lonely Stars In Open Skies (Luca Bacchetti Remix)

Carter Tutti (formerly known as Chris & Cosey) will play shows in Chicago and NYC next month.
The duo of Chris Carter and Cosey Fanny Tutti are former members of Throbbing Gristle, best known for the string of dark synth-pop albums they released throughout the 1980s. They reunited last decade as Carter Tutti and have been active since, also making music as Carter Tutti Void with Factory Floor's Nik Void. These American gigs will be the two's first since 1991.
First up is an appearance at MoMA PS1's Mike Kelly exhibition in New York, where they'll perform tracks from the X-TG (a group that comprises former Throbbing Gristle members) albums on January 5th. From there, they'll head to Chicago on the 9th, where they're set to perform Chris & Cosey tracks at Metro Club alongside Outer Space and Hieroglyphic Being. Two nights later they'll return to NYC for another Chris & Cosey showcase, this time at Santos Party House, where they're joined by Excepter.
An exclusive new CD of Carter Tutti remixes of classic Chris & Cosey material will also be available at the shows.

A live set will come from Veiled, a duo with releases on industrial labels Silvox Recordings and Glass Coffin.

Numbers will re-release Sparky's "Portland" with a Ricardo Villalobos remix on December 9th.1 Comment
The track, a live jam recorded by Glasgow's Dave Clark in 1998, was included on the very first Stuff Records release back in 2002 (a "rambling compilation" according to the label), which preceded the first Numbers club night and became one of the vaunted party's first anthems. The Scottish crew, which later merged the Stuff, Wireblock and Dress 2 Sweat labels to work together as Numbers, discovered that minimal house mastermind Ricardo Villalobos was a fan of the track. Now, they'll reissue the track with a hefty Villalobos remix. Recorded live to tape (as with the original), the rework is a 30-minute groove split into two parts. A self-described "experiment" for the always adventurous producer, it's also meant to work at both vinyl speeds, plotting out a techno groove at 33 RPM and leaning more towards electro at 45.
The reissue also includes two extra and unreleased Sparky tracks recorded at the same time as "Portland"—"Jigsaw" and "Wilson St." You can listen to a preview over at Bleep as well as the Numbers SoundCloud page. Clark has been active more recently as well—check out clips of his recent release as LUMA for Optimo Trax here.
This weekend the Numbers crew will be in London to host a Numbers 10 rave, with Jackmaster, Hudson Mohawke, Optimo, Spencer and Redinho all set to spin.

David Rodigan has mixed the next edition of Ministry Of Sound's Masterpiece series.5 Comments
Rodigan's effort follows Carl Craig's instalment, which came back out in June. Naturally for a man who's been championing dub and reggae for 35 years, his mix is littered with names like Augustus Pablo, King Tubby, Lee "Scratch" Perry and Bob Marley & The Wailers. But his selections also span '60s rock, funk and soul, through to ska, roots and dancehall, to more contemporary music from the likes of Luciano, Amy Winehouse and Riva Starr.
"I have made other compilations, but I decided this should be a reflection of my life musically, including both the things I grew up listening to and the things I am currently enjoying," he says. The first disc documents the music Rodigan listened to growing up, while the second features "one or two glorious obscurities." The third disc, meanwhile, looks to the future: "We are progressing and not living in the past. There are people with new ideas and this music is not finished, there’s a lot more to come."
A selection of the tracks from the mix will be released as a separate 7-inch vinyl boxset. A launch party will take place at Basing House in London on February 5th, 2014.

Lucy is preparing his second solo album, Churches Schools And Guns, for a mid-February release on his own label, Stroboscopic Artefacts.8 Comments
The provocatively-titled album will arrive about three years after Lucy's debut full-length Wordplay For Working Bees. It's been in the making for a year and a half, but the Italian-born, Berlin-based artist (real name Luca Mortellaro) has certainly kept busy otherwise, with a steady stream of tracks and remixes as both a solo producer and collaborator. Perhaps most notable on that front is his work with Speedy J under the name Zeitgeber, which resulted in a self-titled album for Stroboscopic Artefacts earlier in the year.
Churches Schools And Guns sees Lucy continuing to refine his experimental approach to techno production. A press release describes it as sounding "like the act of searching," with 12 tracks emphasizing "misdirection and unpredictability." It'll be made available on CD and digital formats as well as 3xLP vinyl, making it the second artist album on Stroboscopic Artefacts, after Zeitgeber, to get a full vinyl release. As usual for the label, mastering is being done by Dadub, and Ignazio Mortellaro of Oblivious Artefacts is handling art direction and design.
01. The Horror
02. Leave Us Alone
03. The Self As Another
04. Human Triage
05. Laws and Habits

07. Catch Twenty Two
08. The Illusion Of Choice
09. We Live As We Dream
10. All That Noise
11. The Best Selling Show
12. Falling feat. Emme
Stroboscopic Artefacts will release Churches Schools And Guns on February 17th, 2014.
