We're Posting The Instrumental Version Of "AFTER DARK 2" For Everyone To Cut Up For Their Mixtapes, Runways, Films, Stages, Parties, Etc...
"Jetée" is the beautifully lush + spacious new house single from London's Fort Romeau. Like all of the producer's best work, the track has a warm glow that's laced with just the right amount of late-night longing, and his label Ghostly correctly claims that it's "fit for both large soundsystems and epic summer travels...
Tracklist after the jump. Get it on iTunes. Physical copies apparently "on the way..." Italians Do It Better on the slight discrepancy between the tracklist that's been floating around and the final tracklist:

Another gem from After Dark 2, which is finally/officially out this Friday(!): this glorious 9+ minute vocoder jam from Mirage:"Let's Kiss" was written the same week as "Under Your Spell" in November 2008...
Here's an amazing/essential new mix for autumn from Glass Candy/Chromatics/SYMMETRY/Desire mastermind Johnny Jewel, featuring tracks from SYMMETRY, Glass Candy, Chromatics, Kraftwerk, Nico, and more. Johnny Jewel says:
"After looping the globe twice...We're finally back in Montreal for one of my favorite times of year.

Everything is buried by the snow...Perfect weather for locking yourself in the studio with a synthesizer & your favorite records...I put together a collage of songs that, for one reason or another...always remind me of Autumn.
