Tolerance Training: Part Two
The first track to be shared off of Courtship Dances was “Tolerance Training: Part Two” which debuted on XLR8R with these words from Glenn Jackson,
["Tolerance Training: Part Two"] spends much of its five-minute run coyly shifting shapes from a cavernous dance track, to a more energetic house affair led by active (and even a touch funky) synth sequences and lined with an array of minute rhythmic details. An impressive feat of dancefloor evolution…Read the full review
J’ed(ed) / Chyme
The second track to be released from Courtship Dances was “J’ed(ed) / Chyme” which debuted on THUMP from managing editor Jemayel Khawaja who had this to say,
This tune comes out the gate as a raunchy, fidgetty heater and switches up into dystopian ghetto-tech beat now and again – but somewhere around the three minute mark, it devolves into a voided soundscape from which it never returns. The whole thing is an engrossing endeavor…Read the full review

Our transatlantic duo, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, recently had the opportunity to perform at Denmark’s SPOT Festival 2014 and showcase their incredible blend of electronic and hip-hop music. While in Denmark they got some great coverage from international blogs that is definitely worth checking out (utilize that browser translate function…):
Funk You Dear – SPOT Festival 2014 Debrief
Red Bull Studios: Copenhagen – Five Minutes With League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Poule d’Or – SPOT Festival 2014: The Debrief
Though one of the most unique acts on the festival lineup, by all accounts their set was both enjoyed and embraced, and to quote Poule d’Or, “…few things are as entertaining as a room full of cool and tall pale-skinned hipsters trying to be a rap hip hop audience in broad daylight.” This fantastic gif proves it.
And in case you missed their epic trailer for SPOT Festival featuring the always hilarious NOTE and Simon, check it out below.

We are proud to present our latest release, the debut EP from the incredibly talented mHz. Subtle intricacies and stark beauty make Mohammad Zareei’s “Hg” the perfect soundtrack for our transition into the fall season.
And now, a little about Hg in his own words.
“Although extremely toxic, mercury was traditionally thought of as the First Matter, from which all metals were formed. Yet, exposure to this exotic cold-silver looking liquid metal can cause severe health damages. In this EP, I used mercury as a metaphor for noise: an exotic singularity that can be dangerous, disturbing, and harmful, while being the richest source of all sounds. Pushing the limit to the fine line between harshness and pleasure, “Hg” is an effort to create an amalgam of trifling noises of everyday life, glitches of the machine, and digital oscillations on a persistence pulse. Beat and noise are fused here to make each other more interesting, taming the harshness, while preserving the provocativeness.”
