Sonja and Friends Mix by DJ Cutbill
DJ Cutbill has a new mix out today via the Sonja and Friends series. Bill was set the challenge to work around soundscapes, so this is a (mostly) tranquil mix combining the sounds he recorded in the Amazon rainforest with a downbeat vinyl set.
A few shoutouts to Canadian faves BADBADNOTGOOD and Paul Jacobs who appear on this mix, but don't let these names fool you as there is still very much an electronic edge overall.
Bill's Amazonas Sound Library, if you didn't already know, is a free resource for filmmakers, musicians and creatives. You can listen to the raw files and download them here.
Check out the full Sonja and Friends series now.

Idious Carrie's Road to 'O'
Idious Carrie has joined the media merry-go-round ahead of the release of her debut double A single, 'O', which arrives worldwide tomorrow!
Havin' a Chat is a podcast by Alex Spears; a lovely chap who held a really beautiful conversation with Idious, giving a unique insight into the inspiration behind the two tracks that make up the release (9 Lives and The World as a Loose Garment).
We've embedded the podcast episode for your listening pleasure, so get your ears around that but... if that leaves you with a thirst for more... don't worry that soft little head of yours because more is on the way!
ULTRA (your favourite local scene zine) will be premiering 9 Lives on their brand spanking new radio show which aires from 6pm tonight (Friday 11th June) via trueconnection.fm. You can also read a fantastic article on Idious Carrie's release in the latest issue of ULTRA Mag. Thanks to Marko Cindric for his articulate words about the release.
Well there you go! Don't sleep on it - grab yourself a cup of tea and immerse yourself in the Tkaronto arts scene.

World News Soundcloud Explodes Into Life
"World News Wednesdays" they're calling it. We were confused why, but then the pair explained that they'll be releasing improvised electronic music moments of all shapes and sizes to SoundCloud every Wednesday.
So far they are keeping well to their promise, and this week released a popping little ditty labelled TSBCMMVVI02.
What sort of instruments can you expect to hear? Synthesizers and drum machines of course.
