WOMPLIST 84: Thriftworks & Sinjin Hawke, DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn, Kingdom & Ma Nguzu, Peanut Butter Wolf & Jonwayne, Laurel Halo & M.E.S.H. & PAN, Space Jam

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28

Thriftworks (SF), Sinjin Hawke, special guest, P. Morris, Subset, M!NT at SRB Brooklyn [10PM/15-20$]

We’re giving away 2 tickets to this show! Enter HERE before 6PM!

Thriftworks is one of the most unique voices in US bass music. In trying to describe his music, I’ve made up the following genres: bog-tech, skeksi club, avant druid, dagobah wave, insectno, dreamtime bass. Just listen to this live set and you’ll get what I’m trying to say. This is intensely organic music, made by someone who clearly spends a lot of time in nature.

While Thriftworks came up as a producer in the Bay Area glitch-hop scene, his music bears only the vaguest resemblance to his peers – Eskmo is the closest, but there’s still a vast gulf between them. His beats are definitely wonky, glitchy and backed up by some very rubbery bass. But there’s an definitively mystical quality to his work. And not in that obvious, fractal-loving, post-psytrance way that so many glitch-hop artists have adopted after enough time on hallucinogens. Imagine if Yoda had an MPC and a field recorder, and you’re getting close. Never one to fuck with a label, Thrifworks has self-released 6 full albums of amazing music since 2010, and you can hear it all at his bandcamp.

Co-headlining is Sinjin Hawke, who is about as different from Thriftworks as two white male producers can get. If Thriftworks is the mystic in the woods, worshipping plant gods and decomposition, Sinjin is the mystic of the city, exalting the entire pantheon of club styles and everything neon and steel and artificial. His latest mix for i-D mag makes that clear. From his collaborations with MikeQ that pretty much out-HudMo HudMo, to his 3d mapped visuals with Zora Jones, to his penchant for footwork and jersey club, this is the entire urban experience put in a space-blender and whipped to a fine froth.

Supporting you’ve got Subset, one of NYC’s hardest working bass music DJs. His BASSment Saturdays party skews towards Brostep in terms of headliners, but dude plays an phenomenal variety of subgenres in his sets, and with an extremely keen ear for moving the crowd (srsly guys, click that link). Also supporting is P.Morris, (formerly MORRI$), the Philly Night SLugs and Fade to Mind affiliate who recently rebooted his identity with the his first full length album, Debut. It’s an intensely hazy, emotional, and refreshingly non-aggro take on the 2013’s RnBass sounds. Hear the whole thing in a continuous mix here.

Rone Live in the Boiler Room, see him at Glasslands April 3rd

Thrilled to have just added a new date to the calendar for Rone, the French electronica maester. He’ll be appearing at Glasslands Thursday, April 3rd. Rone’s music resembles Jon Hopkins – textured, spacey electronica that straddles house and techno – but the mood is closer to the bouncey, neon optimism of Lone’s recent singles.

Hopefully he’ll be playing a live set, like he did in this amazing 40 minutes he turned out for a the recent Nuits Sonores takeover of the Boiler Room.  Tracklist courtesy of  1001 Tracklists, which is a ridiculous rabbit hole for any DJ.

 
 
Tracklist:

01min Rone – Bye Bye Macadam
05min Rone – Flesh
10min Rone – Let’s Go (Wild Edit)
13min Rone – So So So
20min ID – ID
23min Rone – Fugu Kiss (Live Edit)
26min Rone – King Of Batoofam
32min Rone – Beast (Live Edit)
37min Rone – Bora Vocal
39min Rone – Parade

Strand’s ‘Bankstaz Paradise’ pays tribute to G-funk with skronky beats and horns

Bankstaz Paradise is some of the freshest shit I’ve heard in a minute. Spanish producer Strand delivers 6 tracks full of Afrobeat horns and skronky beats reminiscent of Fulgeance. Oh, and an Om Unit remix. How can you not hit play? According to the description,

he had two ideas in mind: paying homage to G-funk and Gangsta Rap (drawing a parallel between the gangstaz and bankstaz of the current Spanish economic crisis) and working with a soul-afrobeat horn section which was conveniently named The Financial Horns.

Love G-funk and I love the way he’s updated it and tied it in with current events. You can preorder the wax over at Bandcamp, this is out Feb 17 on Lovemonk.
