OSCILLATIONS PT. 2 - (Slugabed, Alex B, Kidkanevil, Ghost and more)

The second part of a widely acclaimed compilation: Oscillations has arrived. Jus Like Music & Apple Juice Break present another set of 20 tracks of hard-to-describe music ranging from twisted hip-hop through glitch hop, wonky, electronica, dubstep to full-fledged beatz and tons of other styles in between.  As in the case of pt. 1 the opening track rocks like hell! I have nvever heard about XLII. He is a Ukrainian raised in UK and now living in Japan. His Roll Upon You Like XLII  moves with such an ease between dubstep subs, neon synths and raw hip-hop beat, like  the best tracks reaching my ears recently from the West Coast of US. Great banger for my car's sound system!! I want more, sir. Two heavy-weight champions of glitchy beats follow. Slugabed and Alex B need no introduction I hope :) Easily, two of the top-10 producers in my personal ranking at the moment. And you can grab their 320' tracks for free, praised be Jus Like Music crew.

However, the highlight of pt. 2 has been begotten in CIA by the London-based producer  Ghost (I highly recommend you grab a nice package of outstanding remixes from his website, incl. Foreign Beggars, Dabrye, Bonobo, Coldcut) who takes the listener for a voyage through dark sonic landscapes applying wide instrumentation and pulsing bass along the way. TIP! All in all this compilation is even better and more concise than Pt. 1. Other tunes I liked include: Kidkanevil, Suzi Analog, Constrobuz, Greymatter and Beatcasso. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
