Opiuo – Butternut Slap pt. 1, OUT NOW!

First in a trifecta of EPs that will form a complete album, Butternut Slap is everything you love about Opiuo, but fresher. Bombastic, frenetic, and funky-as-hell – this is the bleeding edge of glitch hop. Alongside luminaries like Koan Sound and Blunt Instrument, Opiuo is helping to push glitch hop forward toward a future that

Filastine – Colony Collapse (dubstep that means something)

Phenomenally powerful dubstep music from Filastine (ft. Nova) and an incredible video to match. I’ve been keepin an eye on this guy ever since this crazy-ass mix, We Are Experiencing Turbulence (Insurrectionary Bass Music Sin Fronteras), which is pretty much what it sounds like – trans-national heavy bass music with a message. It’s not easy listening, but then, this is revolution music, in the tradition of Dead Prez, Rage, Marley, and Dylan. Cop the release at addictech.

Also of note, the Beats Antique remix throws extra glitches and strings into the mix, properly expanding upon the original vibe.


My boys Mad Zach (aka Count Spankula) and R2 the Specialist have been killing it for a minute now with their uniquely west-coast sound. This is one of the most mashing tracks from their new album, “Wolfspiders”, out now on Muti Music. It hit #1 on the addictech charts the week it was released, so you’ll be hearing this stuff out. Look for them making a SUPER SPECIAL SECRET east coast appearance this summer – I’ll keep you guys posted.
