There’s no telling why Brooklyn’s Far Out Far Out has been so quiet, but he’s been making the prettiest noise. This mysterious producer has a talent for glistening emotive house tracks, including “Zodiacal Light” off our Purple Trax compilation.

[ PURPLE TRAX KICKSTARTER ]

Today is the day WEIRD MAGIC opens up a new portal in this dimension, PURPLE TRAX. PURPLE TRAX is a new label focusing on independent, experimental music that wouldn’t otherwise get properly released. Check out our intro video:

We’ve already got some killer releases lined up for this year, but first we’re kicking things off with a compilation featuring special handpicked tracks from some new artists as well as a few of our faves. You can listen to the entire thing now, below.

We have launched a Kickstarter to help us pay for the printing of the compilation, the launch party, and to get us on our feet basically. Any donations much appreciated, and we’re offering some great, very tangible rewards.

Mix & Interview: Masahiro Ueda

Our man Masa the Vibe Masta takes the helm for the latest edition. Formerly on staff at Japan’s legendary WOMB club, he made the move to New York two years ago to pursue his passion for house music. His club night at Bossa Nova, Down By Low, has managed to book the elusive Galcher Lustwerk, have dibs on Terekke when he comes to town, and bring Specter out for his first New York show, as well as inspiring Resident Advisor to wax poetic about Bossa as a whole.

Like any Vibe Masta, Masa understands the importance of pacing, and the early moments of the mix recall his opening dj sets, with ambient and beatless landscapes, before entering grittier and rawer territory. Check it out and read our candid conversation, below.
