Mark Van Hoen at Magnet

Los Angeles-based, U.K.-born electronic pioneer Mark Van Hoen (who you might know from some of his work as Locust, Scala, Black Hearted Brother or one of the other 100 projects over the last 30 years) has released new album Nightvision on Saint Marie Records. Van Hoen compiled a video mix tape of inspirations and a bit of an intro into electronic music. He has never stopped working; he’s always producing new music and videos, performing and DJing.

SPC ECO at Magnet

SPC ECO is the U.K.-based duo of Dean Garcia (Curve) and Rose Berlin. On their new album Dark Matter, they have left behind a bit of the industrial shoegaze of Garcia’s past and have made a full-length that pulls from grime and trip hop so much you might think it was recorded ages ago in Bristol. Berlin and Garcia both sat down recently to put together a mixtape for MAGNET that wasn’t so much the inspiration behind the new album, but what they consider essential viewing and listening. Dark Matter is currently available from Saint Marie Records.

Mark Van Hoen at Magnet

Mark Van Hoen’s latest record is called Nightvision, and “I Love To Fly” seems to indicate that this title is more than apt. The new song from this L.A.-based artist is almost perfectly prepped for the less intense moments of ‘80s horror movies. The track is perfect for the lead up to Halloween—the electronic landscape only permeated by a distant and unsettling (in a good way) spoken-word performance.Nightvison is out November 13. Download “I Love To Fly” below.
