Chic guitarist and producer Nile Rodgers is already off to a banner year, with tons of collaborations on the books. Today we find he’s also in the studio with Tensnake. But guess what else is everywhere these days? That Hitler/Downfall meme, which rears its head in the dance-music world today. Check it, along with news from Adult., Hot Natured, Nine Inch Nails, and much more in the Morning Roundup.
- Detroit electro duo Adult. have announced a new full-length album, their first in original LP since 2007, entitled The Way Things Fall, will be released on Ghostly International on May 14. (full story)
- Man, Adolf Hitler is still finding out new musical trends decades after his downfall. That said, when he name-drops Disclosure and Julio Bashmore in this Hitler-meme video, we can’t help but crack a laugh. So behold, the Downfall meme as imagined by deep-house purists.
- Just BTW, Nine Inch Nails are reforming. Head nail Trent Reznor’s newly assembled band includes Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction, Adrian Belew of King Crimson, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. (full story)
- More on the James Blake new-album front: He’s confirmed collaborations with Brian Eno and RZA. (full story)
- Nicky Romero and Nervo’s “Like Home” hit Beatport’s #1 spot late last year, but has just been given the proper video treatment. Watch the clip for the prog-house vocal banger below.
- We’re pretty damn stoked for this new Hot Natured LP, and today we’re happy to show you a little video clip for the first single, “Reverse Skydiving feat. Anabel Englund.”
- Who’da thunk that Nile Rodgers would have such a “moment” in 2012/13? He’s not only expecting on the new Daft Punk album, but now he’s working with Avicii and Tensnake as well. Of course, if there’s any question why this guy is a straight-up OG, check the production—and bassline!—on this Carly Simon jam below. (full story)
