Hot Toddies in Audio Format!

Some freshness for ya face:

SUB SWARA PODCAST #008
Hot off the podpresses, Subswara’s third podcast in as many months! This used to be one of those every 4-5 months podcasts, so I’m really glad they’ve been picking up the pace. I really can’t stop saying good things about Sub Swara until I see every one of you at their shows (and they’ve been hinting at the next Sub City Sessions – the last one was epic).

Featuring superfresh unreleased exclusives from DZ, Benga, Dev79 remixing Erykah Badu, LD remix of Mungo’s Hi-Fi, and a spanking new track from Sharmaji and Juakali of Sub Swara.

You’ve Got the Love (The xx Remix)


couldn’t find the original story, but this song was one music bloggers entire year-end list, eloquently stating that (and I’m paraphrasing here, sorry) while it might not be the most facemeltinglyskullcrushing blah blah whatever, it does exactly what all good music should do, “get you laid”!

BRAINFEEDER PODCAST – 10 YEARS OF FLYING LOTUS MIXED BY GASLAMP KILLER
ft. Art by Flying Lotus…. really nothing more to say here that the title doesn’t already. These two names are synonymous with awesome in my book.

SCHLOHMO XLR8R PODCAST
This kid is 19? Jesus, he was a freshman when I was a senior! And he’s totally killin it on chilled-synth-wonk-wobble-nu-illbient juicebox beats for introspective kids who spent a lot of time watching cartoons with spaceships and robots and staring out car windows. I mean, seriously, he drops a track by Low Limit (of Lazer Sword) called “Trapperkeeper”! 80s babies ftw.

Oh and for the record, Schlohmo is not, afaik, the UK Beatboxer Shlomo as some others have asserted.

BONUS XMAS MIX BATTLE:
DJ Cable vs Murdertronics

Both Cable and Murdertronics dropped Christmas-themed mixes this week (tho Cable’s was from last year) and both feature quite a few of the same tracks. Who killed it harder?? Both have their merits but I’d be interested to hear what y’all think…

Link to Cable’s Mix and post about it.

TONS of free tunes from Streetlab!

One of the really standout artists I found this year was Streetlab. Based just down the road from us in Brooklyn, these two gents have been cranking out remixes that absolutely knock my socks off.

And today they announced via facebook that THEY ARE GIVING AWAY EVERY TRACK & REMIX THEY PRODUCED THIS YEAR. Click on that bigass link to get em! These are two prolific dudes – something like 20 remixes and another half dozen originals. And they all slay. In particular, I want to listen to that Hall & Oates remix all the goddamn time.

Their style really reminds me of The Philip Steir remix of “Magic Carpet Ride” from the GO soundtrack (anyone else play that one till your discman broke?) – they preserve the vibe of the original track while amping it up with modern production… par example, peep their most excellent remix of Gimme Shelter below:

The Rolling Stones – Gimme Shelter (streetlab mix)  by  Streetlab

So what are you waiting for?! Go cop the rest of these fantastic tracks!

HOLY SHIT NEW ESKMO – COLORBRAIN MIX

I get so HYPED when the little blue dot shows up next to the Brainfeeder podcast in my iTunes. More than any other crew, Brainfeeder makes me miss the West Coast. And today’s mix is extra hype because it’s chock full of fresh exclusives from one of my absolute all-time favorites….from San Francisco, California:

E-S-K-M-O. 
Eskmo’s sound has really matured with this latest batch of songs. Make sure to listen to this on a good system – his big warm gooey synths roll across the soundscape like herds of giant pancake monsters, bouncy riddims keep it moving, and the bleeps are sooooo tasty. Like a freakyass dream you can’t really remember, it feels simultaneously underwater, baroque, and hyperfuturistic.

This guy has been in total CRUSH MODE this year. In February he dropped The Ancestor Mix Described as “classy dubstep” or “dinosaurs fighting robots”, depending on you who ask; all that really matters is that it’s been in heavy rotation on my speakers for damn near a year now. In April his Hypercolor EP got props from Amon Tobin, then he did some remixes for STS9 and the Brooklyn’s own Sub Swara crew (who will be getting their own post very soon). Oh and he toured as Welder (supporting STS9) with Evan Bluetech, who has a great name and also rules at the whole downtempo-whomp-space-dub thing. And now Eskmo’s got remixes out on Warp and a split with EPROM out on Planet Mu! Not bad for a years work, going from self-released on your own digital label to getting pushed by 3 of the biggest labels in dance music. And that’s just the abridg’d version.

TO SUM UP:
ESKMO – Colorbrain Mix – Get it Here
ESKMO – The Ancestor Mix – Get it Here
…and a special bonus for you lucky devils, Evan Bluetech has an EP for download by donation, so go support his philanthropic ass, wouldja?
