Flashback Records

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• London based retail chain Flashback Records has opened a third shop, this one on Bethnal Green Road in Shoreditch. Details here.

• Some of those speaker things – people who speak, not amps – have been confirmed for the first ever EDM-fused International Music Summit Asia Pacific, a spin-off from the annual Ibiza-based IMS gathering of dance-heads. Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Richie Hawtin, Ultra Korea’s JC Ahn, Zouk Club’s Lincoln Cheng and the Association Of Electronic Music’s Mark Lawrence will all bring some speaking goodness. The event takes place in Singapore on 11 Dec, more here.

• Collectors of EDM conferences might also want to get themselves an edition of the Electronic Music Conference, taking place in Sydney on 2-4 Dec. Flume, Laidback Luke, Cedric Gervais, Windish Agency’s Latane Huges, The Preset’s manager Will Larnach-Jones and Laneway Festival boss Danny Rogers are amongst the talking heads at that one.

• Bob Dylan will release an LP titled ‘Shadows In The Night’ in 2015, confirms a note inside his new cover-all box compilation ‘The Basement Tapes’. A source has told Billboard it consists of all covers of Frank Sinatra songs, so now you (probably) know.

• Longhaired psych-rock lords Bo Ningen are co-releasing a dead serious collaborative recording, comprising one single live track lasting 37 minutes, with Savages. ‘Words To The Blind’ transcribes the Cabaret Voltaire-inspired show the acts first played back in 2013. It’ll be available via Stolen Recordings/Pop Noire on 17 Nov. This is its promotional trailer one, and this is trailer two.

• Bring Me The Horizon have released ‘Don’t Look Down’, the track they donated to Zane Lowe’s inexplicable BBC re-score of the film ‘Drive’, as a free gift to fans. It comes with an accompanying note explaining to people who think the song is ‘a bit shit’ why it, in fact, is not.
