DJ Bone and Perel
A rundown of the week’s best new electronic releases, plus interviews with Detroit veteran DJ Bone and genre-blurring German talent Perel.
Another week means another deluge of new electronic music, but it also means another helpful on-air cheat sheet from Shawn Reynaldo, who reliably highlights only the best new offerings every Thursday. On this edition of the show he premieres a track off the upcoming rRoxymore EP for UK label Don’t Be Afraid, and of course no episode would be complete without a couple of in-depth interviews as well. Up first is Motor City staple DJ Bone, who explains the difference between his main moniker and his critically acclaimed Differ-Ent alias before breaking down his new album, A Piece of Beyond, his first new full-length in more than decade. Also coming through for a chat is Perel, a rising, Berlin-based producer whose debut LP, Hermetica, just dropped on DFA. She discusses her refusal to stick to genre boundaries and her excitement about this year’s Red Bull Music Academy, for which she’s been selected as a participant.
