Skwee’d-out Sunday afternoon space funk … for your sunday afternoon. From Boss Kite, aka the Rick James of Brighton. Donkey Pitch comin through big again. The second track is my favorite. I can practically hear Biz Markie relating a story over this beat. Out Feb 9 on ye olde Donky Pitch Bandcamp. This is the
Guys, I feel bad. I’ve been holding out on you. This mix has been on heavy heavy rotation in my headphones for like a month now, and I just have no excuse for not posting it. So here ya go. Fifty six minutes of the finest in space-hop, curated by Cpt. Weedo for Belgian beat
Absolutely MASSIVE new sounds from Akira Kiteshi. This lil album sampler minimix will blow you away, and get you excited for the 14 track LP dropping Feb 27th on AfterGlo Records (which so far has only put out stuff by Phaeleh). The album sounds fantastic, and refreshing in it’s scope. There’s plenty of crushing, Pinball-esque bangers (both stompy
Salva put together an absurdly tasty mix of contemporary funk of the electro/boogie variety. I’ve had it on repeat all weekend. Every track sounds like it should have come out in ’82. Feat. tracks from B.Bravo, D’Angelo + Mark Ronson, Oliver Daysoul, DâM-FunK, etc. check the FADER post here and go see Salva tear it down
Partial lineup for Outlook Festival has just been announced, and it looks to be huge as ever. Tickets are ON SALE NOW (since yesterday actually). Get em HERE. £135 (that’s $210 + booking fees). The complete initial lineup, along with all the basic info, is up on the new Outlook Tumblr. Dimensions Festival Lineup was also
Next level future funk/bass music from S.F. producer B.Bravo. Pitchfork.tv dishes up a nicely produced video feature on the live band. The groove they hit around 3:15 is so excellent – kinda like if Bootsy Collins was in Sepalcure.
B.Bravo has been one of my favorite discoveries this year. His Kiss’n’Tell EP was a standout this year, and the inaugural release for the very exciting Earnest Endeavors label. 2010’s releases on Frite Nite, Computer Love and Analog Starship EP are both juicy listens all the way through, and his Swing My Way remix (free d/l!) was one of my favorite guilty pleasures.
Fresh heaters from west coast glitch wunderkid Jay Wikid. He’s dropped a half dozen new tracks on soundcloud in the last 2 days, but these are my picks. POLLY flips some eastern-european vocals into a funky, glitched out party jam, while The Last Night mines a late-80s sound palette for what sounds like Autobot love
Heavy heavy badness from Goth Trad. Video for big tune off his upcoming New Epoch LP, out Jan 30th on Deep Medi.
Feature interview with the man over at RA yesterday – really in depth stuff re: his process, inspiration, etc – peep it here.
Doc Krank has never lead me astray before. This time, it’s a mix from Tom Encore, and it’s a class-A facemelter. An ambitious tracklist, some might even say eyebrow-raising, but oh boy does it deliver. The tempo is all over the place, and it pulls from an impressive spectrum of party music. But the mixing
this mix by WALA was so good i straight up turned it off. I was already hyped because the tracklist included two recent soundcloud favorites. I ended up looking up the first 3 tracks in a row (thereby turning me on to turnsteak), they were all so good. and when what sounded like a glitchhop
Wompblog homie Yan Zombie just dropped his LP, The Hold-On Tight:Analogue Slices Of Love and Confusion on Bandcamp yesterday, pay-what-you-want style. Fans of Leonard Dstroy, Kid Koala and Mixmaster Mike should definitely give this a whirl. We covered Yan’s prolific output last week, but this release deserves it’s own collection of words. I’ve been listening
Purple don MartyParty isn’t fuckin around. He just debuted the single from his upcoming LP, Six Shots of Jameson and no surprise, it’s incredible. Lushly layered minor chords weave over taught percussion and fierce sub bass, punctuated by skanky synth stabs and reverbed synth-horns. The drop is a riveting, spinetingling bass-gasm, but it’s also incredibly smooth
Ok so Ewan Hoozami is one of my favorite DJs of all time. I’ve listened to his insanely amazing It’s A Stickup! mix easily a hundred times since March of ’09, and like all great works of art it has continued to reveal new sides to it’s brilliance. Monsieur Hoozami has also been knocking out
Brand new live mix from Author (Ruckspin and Jack Sparrow). Anything these two gents do is gonna be magical, but this is their live set from the legendary DMZ/Exodus night in leeds, so already you know this mix is gonna be extra choice. Expect luscious sub bass, incredibly clear and spaciously mixed tunes, and an
Fact: Toddla T is a fucking badman. One of the least pretentious, and most prolific gents in UK Bass, Toddla T’s productions are ruthlessly engineered to get your ass on the dancefloor. Witness how many times you (I) wiled out to Take It Back this summer. Fucking love that tchune. Anyway, fresh womps from the
Synth-master general Sduk has been posting previews this week on Soundcloud from a the upcoming album, Anything Could Happen coming out January 9th on Slit Jockey. Preorder that shit here. Sduk put out one of my favorite EPs of 2011, YouNyt, especially this jam: TeeHee by Sduk Here’s my two favorites of the new stuff
Returning from winter hiatus this week, I’m starting a new feature called BIGGUP, focusing on a worthwhile and underhyped artist and their recent output. To pop things off, we have Yan Zombie, a mysterious masked bass-maker from Nelson, BC. In his own words, dude makes futuristic/purple hip hop badman dancehall riddims meet with glitchy moog
