Beyond Wizard’s Sleeve

Now that school is FINALLY done interfereing with my music stalking abilities: here’s something I seem to have missed in the past months…

Apparently Erol Alkan and his buddy Richard Norris (aka Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve) have putting out new albums without telling me! Unlike Erol’s usual M.O. of high intensity club remix, this side-group demonstrates his mind-blowing electro skillz taken off into another direction: experimental electro trip-hop (or whaever). The use of audio reminds me of The Avalanches and Lemon Jelly, but past that it’s hard to really tie them down to a genre. Too bad I found this after finals, it’s the perfect study music: interesting enough to keep you awake, but not so much that it’s distracting. The good ol’ interwebz has sponsored the first album- Ark 1 and a neat 2007 DJ set they did if anyone is interested. I’m still searching for the Re-Animation, their remix compilation album, so till I actually find it, I’ll just post the tracklist to drool over:

01. The Chemical Brothers – Battle Scars (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
02. Franz Ferdinand – Ulysses (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
03. Late Of The Pier – The Bears Are Coming (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
04. Peter, Bjorn And John feat. Victoria Bergman – Young Folks (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
05. Tracey Thorn – Raise The Roof (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
06. Badly Drawn Boy – Promises (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
07. Goldfrapp – Happiness (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
08. Midlake – Roscoe (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
09. Dust Galaxy – Come Hear The Trumpets (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve

10. Real Ones – Outlaw (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
11. Simian Mobile Disco – Love (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve Re-Animation)
