Listen: TIm Hecker remixes The Field's "No.No..."

)

Available since end of Feburary, the second, strictly limited remix 12" of The Field's much-acclaimed "Cupid's Head" full-length impressed electronic cognoscenti with a wonderful, deeply emotional remix by John Tejada - but that's not even half of the story, as contributions from Andreas Tilliander aka TM404 and Tim Hecker present themselves as equally thrilling endeavours. After already featuring the first 12" and the Tejada rework, Chicago-based tastemaker hub Pitchfork snatched Hecker's gloriously textured jam - enjoy it here!

Listen: Pitchfork premieres John Tejada remix for The Field's "No. No..."

As we're getting ready for the second batch of remixes for The Field's much-acclaimed "Cupid's Head" full-length (and you'll definitely want to get ready, with the strictly limited first volume already sold out), Chicagoan tastemaker hub Pitchfork proudly presents the premiere of John Tejada's breathtaking rework of album centerpiece "No. No...". After the crowdrising "We Can Pretend" 12", this sees the LA-based studio wizard digging deeper into colourful electronic nostalgia than ever before. Also featuring remixes by drone sculptor Tim Hecker and Andreas Tilliander's TM404 project, "Cupid's Head Remixe II" will be available on February 24th... oh boy, it's going to be a wild ride next week, considering that we'll also have brilliant new material coming in from labels like Raster-Noton, Cómeme, Life And Death, Ostgut Ton, Optimo Music, Ki, Holger and Modern Love. Help!

Listen: John Tejada's "Now We're Here" premieres at Mixmag and De:Bug

Our friends at Mixmag and De:bug were so enamored by John Tejada's latest offering, the delightful "We Can Pretend" 12", that they decided to host an exclusive full track premiere: the record's b-side "Now We're Here", which is a direct sequel to John's outstanding spoken word cracker "Somewhere" from last year. That same urge for an assessment can be found on the new track, accurately portrayed by crackling diatribes from Morgan Alexander and embedded in deliciously pumping beats. We're definitely here!

Read: Welcome 2014 with new releases from John Tejada & Sebastien Bouchet

2014 is upon us and to welcome a new year brimming with opportunity, we decided to give you another piece of that sweet, sweet pre-sale action we started end of last month: after the Pop Ambient 2014 compilation and stunning offerings from Demdike Stare and Andy Stott, you are now able to get your hands on two new 12" bangers from Kompakt - both Speicher 77 featuring Sebastian Bouchetand John Tejada's "We Can Pretend" won't see an official release before January 13th, meaning that till then, these cuties are only available at Kompakt.FM! Discover Sebastian Bouchet's latest psychotropic reveries on Speicher 77, the follow-up to 2010's exceptional "Fallen Angel" - it's still the same undercurrent of deranged minimalism running alongside a perfectly executed club framework and counterbalancing the occasional epic outburst. Likewise, John Tejada sticks to what he does best on "We Can Pretend", as we find the modular wizard booting up his gear where he left off with last year's "Somewhere", resulting in a somnambulistic two-tracker that delivers more bang for the buck. The beat goes on!

Read: Upcoming releases from The Field & John Tejada to kick off 2014

We definitely want to quickly get the ball rolling next year, with two upcoming 12" releases from label stalwarts The Field and John Tejada. After the strictly limited Gas remixes of title track "Cupid's Head", The Field's recent album will see more revamps coming from an illustrious group of producers - the first 12" in a series of three will feature Vatican Shadow, Barker & Baumecker and Sonns. Meanwhile, John Tejada returns with a full-bodied two-tracker titled "We Can Pretend", a sequel to the mighty "Somewhere" from earlier this year. "Cupid's Head Remixe I" is expected for January 20th and "We Can Pretend" for January 13th... way to kick off 2014!
