Berlin’s own Touchy Mob (aka Ludwig Plath) makes lonesome haunting folktronica that touches the heart and makes you weak at the knees. Over the past few years, he has released a slew of self-produced tracks, performed all across Europe and produced stellar remixes for the likes of How How, Caribou, Karneef and Toro Y Moi…
Toro Y Moi - Still Sound (Touchy Mob Remix)
How How - Bumpy (Touchy Mob Remix)
Touchy Mob’s latest release is a double A-side split 7″ with Tellavision. To help pay for the vinyl pressing, packaging and studio costs, they set up a crowd sourcing project and raised over €3000. The first track taken of the EP is “Stones”, which Plath describes as a song “about fighting, but a fight between friends or even lovers, so the bruises always have a sweet taste”.

Melbourne’s finest, Cut Copy, have been busy this year, hopping from continent to continent in their marathon quest to spread their critically-acclaimed album Zonoscope across the globe.
They’ve just announced a string of new dates across the US and Europe, including the inaugural Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris, as well as the long running one in Chicago. The icing on the cake is that they will be supported by Washed Out and Midnight Magic during the US leg of their summer tour.
In preparation for the festivities, the Cutters are releasing a special remix courtesy of Toro y Moi (aka Chaz Bundick). Bundick gives his masterful touch to their new single “Blink And You’ll Miss A Revolution”, turning it into a slinky bright disco hymn.
The remix bundle will be available late July backed up by remixes from Toro y Moi, Chicken Lips, Das Moth & Kenji Takimi, Tornado Wallace and Henning Furst. Stay tuned for the 12″ to follow shortly after.
