Russ Chimes’s ‘Turn Me Out’ is currently being used for BBC Three and Radio 1′s Summer of Live Music advert which we think is a great choice as it is a top summer tune!
And for those who are feeling they need more from the Chimes, here is this 45 min mixtape which Russ put together for Topman a couple of weeks ago.
After selling out in just a few days a little while back, Madeon’s official merch store is restocked with a couple new additions which you can get your hands on here. We’re looking forward to seeing these tees and hoodies at festivals this summer! Speaking of which, it’s going to be another busy summer for Madeon with a host of dates already confirmed and further dates also getting locked in, so hopefully you should be able to catch him at one of the following: http://on.fb.me/RkHNHd
Time to sit back and unwind… It is officially SPRING (as in it’s above 10°) which means it’s almost summer! Festival season is literally at our doorstep and we are already fidgeting impatiently in our chairs. It doesn’t help knowing that Russ Chimes will be getting fully involved with this summer’s festivities. So far, we can announce that he will be playing at Isle of Wight Festival on the 14th of June, Wakestock Festival on the 12th of July, Creamfields on the 23rd of August and Jersey Live Music Festival on the 1st of September. We can’t wait! In the meantime, here is a little taste of what’s to come with the mini mix Mr. Chimes did for Annie Mac a couple of months back.
‘Producer extraordinaire returns bang on time!’ – DMC World Magazine couldn’t have nailed it better than this in their recent interview with Russ Chimes. From up-coming releases, favourite producers and getting poached eggs spot on, this interview covers pretty much everything in the world of Mr. Chimes right now. You can read it here while listening to this super hot remix of Turn Me Out by Ejeca that had its premiere on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show a couple of weeks ago.
Stay Awake, a track by Madeon which was on the UK deluxe version of the Ellie Goulding album Halcyon, is officially out of the closet and made its way to the top of the hypem chart yesterday! Go check it out on his soundcloud page and if you like what you hear you can go grab it on Beatport here.
We’re pretty sure you’re as excited as us about this long weekend ahead! Obviously we’re looking forward to all the chocolate but really… we can’t wait to get down to The Nest in Dalston on Sunday. It’s going to be big, Russ Chimes will be playing along with Starsmith and Kele Okereke. Expect some pretty intense body shakes and some new bits from him too. See you there? Yes, yes we will!
We think it’s fair to say Madeon has come a loooooong way since we last posted about him. From touring with Lady Gaga on her Born This Way Ball North American tour as well as a string of his own sold out shows to then being the first ever Electronic Artist in history to perform a show on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (http://bit.ly/YNq7WT) to then head straight over to New Zealand and Australia for the Future Music Festival tour then back again last week to the US for the Ultra Music festival, but yet he still managed to find the time whilst in Oz to put together a magnificent 33 min mix live at Triple J for Nina Las Vegas’s show! Taking his mixing skills to another level with 47 tracks in 33 minutes! Ranging from ‘electro to disco-ish stuff’ we challenge you not get up and dance!

Remember Russ Chimes debuted his single Turn Me Out on Annie Mac’s Special Delivery a couple of months ago? Well… this very track climbed up the Hypem chart like there was no tomorrow, staying in the top 3 all of last week! It’s coming out soon on Deconstruction/Columbia Records and we literally can’t wait to see you all throwing some shapes to this summer anthem (wellies and sunnies will be required)!
Most of you have probably guessed… 2012 has been our busiest year yet! Apologies are (again) in order for our lack of posts. But we are definitely going to make up for that this year, 2013 has A LOT in store for us.We’ll kick off our series of regular updates (yes, yes – we promise to keep this up!) with the very busy Mr. Chimes. His special delivery of new track Turn Me Out on Annie Mac’s show last month generated quite the buzz!! Since, he has received specialist radio support and Radio One daytime plays. He also put together a brilliant minimix for Annie Mac a couple of weeks ago which you can download for free here.Our friends accross the pond seem to be catching up on this too. Russ will be interviewed live on Hannah Rad’s Belly of the Beast for East Village Radio in New York between 6 and 8pm ET tomorrow (17/01). He’ll have a chat about everything up and coming in Chimes world! You can tune in here - you won’t want to miss it!More soon!!
Apologies one and all as we’ve not posted for a while but we’ll get back to regular postings in 2012. Anyway to kick start the festive holiday break we thought you’d love to hear the latest little joint from Mercedes from her forthcoming mixtape which fuses her seamless rhymes over a personal favourite of mine. Expect some serious moves from Mercedes in the coming months.
Anyway, enough ramblings from me
Happy Xmas Y’all
