Last night we were treated to a bit of SBTRKT totally live from Maida Vale, where he also debuted two new tunes as well - alongside special guests. Listen back to the whole lot above and grab tickets to his Brixton Academy show while you still can here…

We’re excited to add two brilliant supports for SBTRKT’s big Brixton Academy show. Denai Moore, who you can hear above and the genius newcoming Raury which you can hear below…

SBTRKT is back with a new record titled ‘Wonder Where We Land’ - the first song was previewed on Zane Lowe’s show last night (Annie Mac sitting in). 

We’re very excited to have him back with his band at o2 Brixton Academy later on this year.

Night + Day is upon us - the London leg of The xx led event is tomorrow and we are beyond excited. As we wait out the final remaining hours, here’s a guide to the label behind The xx (and a few other artists playing…) - the excellent Young Turks.

The Young Turks label is nearly 100 releases old, so we’ve picked a couple of landmark numbers and songs to post to tell the story.

YT001 - Jack Penate - Second Minute or Hour

It all started with Jack Penate, but his influence extends a bit further than you’d expect too - his old backing singer Jessie Ware releasing a single with Sampha some 55 release later. Take Jack for a spin above.

YT010 - Holy Fuck - Lovely Allen

Holy Fuck’s self-titled debut was the first Young Turks LP and the Lovely Allen single was the label’s tenth release. The song still sounds just as good as it did back then too.

YT023 - The xx - Crystalised

The focus of Night + Day and still Young Turk’s most famous success. The incubating of the precocious and hugely talented band is one of Young Turk’s greatest achievements so far. Crystalised a superb introduction. See also YT031 (The xx - The xx).

YT060 - SBTRKT - SBTRKT

Another huge success and another act Eat Your Own Ears have worked with over the past few years. The SBTRKT debut is superb, can’t wait for the next one.

YT088 - Koreless - Sun

Koreless’ Yugen EP is one of our favourites of the year so far. He also plays Night + Day and we can’t wait. Check out the hypnotising Sun above.

A short while ago we announced a new festival in Croatia that we are involved with through Field Day alongside The Warehouse Project and Hideout festival. Excitement is really starting to build now as accommodation details start to emerge. Find out more about that here. You can take a look at the initial names, including EYOE faves Django Django, Disclosure, Four Tet, Jamie xx, James Holden, SBTRKT and lots more.

Tickets here.

WED 10TH OCTOBER
SAVAGES

Savages have arguably been the most exciting new band of 2012. The type of band to turn even the most cynical listener into a rabid fan, thanks in no small part to truly blistering live shows.

THU 11TH OCTOBER
EGYPTIAN HIP HOP

The wait for Egyptian Hip Hop’s debut album is finally over - it’s about to see release on legendary R&S records, and there’s no finer home for the band’s warped pop music. They play at Corsica Studios and we’re expecting a party atmosphere.

WED 17TH OCTOBER
FAYE

The Best Fit crew unearth yet another Scandinavian pop gem in Faye who plays the Shacklewell Arms on the 17th, but you really wouldn’t be surprised if she was turning up with an entourage to the O2 in years to come.

THU 18TH OCTOBER
HOT CHIP

A victory lap show for a band at the top of their game. They made arguably the best album of their career in 2012 and recent live shows have been a real treat. We’ve got two nights with them, so no excuse.

THU 18TH OCTOBER
ERRORS

One of the year’s best line-ups for another of its breakout acts. Errors celebrate a brilliant year alongside Dam Mantle and the returning Esben and the Witch. What a night.
