STARKEY - Resident Advisor Podcast .204



Well, I listen to Starkey a lot and still can't get enough of his extended, spacey synths, out-of-this-planet melodies and sick bass. This guy really brings dubstep (and a few other genres in it) to the next level, maybe not for all tastes but my neural set-up seems to get a perfect rapport with Mr. Street Bass music offering. I don't know whether he is a pioneer of the so-called "2nd wave dubstep producers" (the term coined in this article), but I do now he eascapes easy pigeonholing, showing immense creativity and music sensitivity. The mixtape selection is killing as usual and includes a few of my favorite recent tunes. Apart from Starkey's solo work and remixes, I'd mention Knight Riderz remix of a killing Schlachthofbronx anthem Ayoba, Grimelock's remix of Let the Bass by a Belgian producer Alchemyst, filthy tunage by NastyNasty or absolutely, ridiculously senseless Zombies by Kanji Kinetic. There is more, just listen.

It's great that Starkey's podcast appeared on the Resident Advisor's portal, which is rather associated with more minimal, techno, house or possibly dub-tech vibe. New outlet for exposing Starkbots's sound may only bring new converts, even if some hardcore fans of 'minimal sound' (??) were slightly or quite straight-in-yer-face disappointed (see the comments section for the podcast).

EL REMOLON - ZZK Mixtape vol. 9


The mighty cumbia label - Zizek Records from Buenos Aires has just released a new mixtape by their shining star - El Remolon (aka Andrés Schteingart). This is just a taste of what’s to come on his next album & EP, both of which will be released by ZZK Records later this year. One can hear the wide music spectrum here from cumbia mashups through cumbiastep to dubstep, but what really counts is a fantastic, laidback yet very danceable vibe created by El Remolon. Highly recommended!

ATARI TEENAGE RIOT is back with "ACTIVATE"


It's half past midnite in my timezone, I sit quietly in front of my laptop immersed in multi-tasking writing, responding to messages, surfing, listening to music, with occasional nod of my head or humming quitely to the rhythm ... then a new track in my player makes me jump with shock. ARGHHH, it's  a new Alec Empire's digital techno hardcore stuff from  Atari Teenage Riot called quite correctly Activate and as usual it is about CONFRONTATION / RIOT/ RAGE / ESCALATION and TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT CONTROL !! Oh boy, the riffs, the riffs - it's a work of art! Atari Teenage Riot recorded this song March 3rd 2010 for the upcoming live show May 12th in London, UK. Introducing new member CX KIDTRONIK from Brooklyn, USA. Atari Teenage Riot is back! Can't wait to hear more material from them. Once a teenager, always teenager!

Roisin Murphy - Momma's Place (Lukasz Wasilewski remix)



Usually I don't do this type of 'pushing' on my blog, but first, I really like this remix and secondly, I've been a fan of Lukeing Forward (Lukasz Wasilewski) for a long time. I really dig his cinematic / trip-hop aesthetics powered by heavy bass and extremely wide orchestration. This dude could probably play any instrument and has a huge collection of acoustic gear to support his digital output. This time he takes part in a remix contest for Roisin Murphy's Momma's Place. The end result is more than promising, I've listened to a few submisission's and Lukasz fluid, talking bassline really stands out and speaks to me. Go there and support him and don't forget to check more music on his facebook page.

OUT RUN THIS - Halfmanhalf vs. Low Limit feat. Copywrite


HALFMANHALF, an MC from Portland has just sent me a hot track which is a preview of the album he is cooking up together with his homie, Low Limit of Lazer Sword fam. "OUT RUN THIS" also features COPYWRITE and the cuts on the song come from Davis Cleveland. Serious head-nodding biznis guaranteed.  Production style, crunky synths and cut-up vocal samples are definitely LazerSwordian.

Carly D - Ligthening in a Bottle promo mixtape


Another great mix from Bay Area producer and DJ - Carly D. I really dig her selection, DJ skills and music sensitivity. She proved it in a previous, dubstep mix I posted on my blog, she proves it again in this special set put together for the DoLab's mixtape contest. The mix consists of tracks by artists who will all be playing at Lightning in a Bottle Festival this year.

I really really wish someone finally invented a teleporter to be able to haul my ass across the pond in no time to experience live all these fantastic producers I write about on my blog. I will donate 10 free tickets to the forthcoming Illum Sphere gig in Warsaw in exchange for a fast hop to California :) to the first inventor who presents me with a prototype of such a machine (can be untested yet). We could really use such an invention in the current Europe's dark age of Volcanic Eruption.

DR KRANK'S SONIC EXTRACT: ILLUM SPHERE W WARSZAWIE 21 05 2010 CDQ

Oh yes. Finally! I will celebrate my birthday with friends. Illum Sphere from Manchester will play plus local DJ's. Great fun guaranteed! Sorry international readers but the rest of this post will be in Polish :)

FACEBOOK EVENT SITE

21 MAJA 2010, CDQ, WARSZAWA,

Illum Sphere (Fat City / Hoya:Hoya, Manchester, UK)

data_smog (IdleGravitySlaves, Dublin)
koola (Audiosfera, WaWa)
kwazar (Respecta Kru, WaWa)
facial index (WaWa)

Doktor Krank świętuje jubileusz dwulecia aktywności w muzycznej blogosferze i niestety duuużo poważniejszy jubileusz w realu. Z tej okazji postanowił urządzić chorą potańcówkę w stolicy dla wszystkich przyjaciół, znajomych i fanów nowoczesnej elektroniki. Dzięki przebogatej muzycznej selekcji i eklektycznym zamiłowaniom arystów, którzy zagrają 21 maja w CDQ, szykuje się prawdziwa uczta dla ducha i ciała. Ruszcie tyłki kochani, jest szansa posłuchać naprawdę wyjątkowej muzyki a jednocześnie wylać parę kropel potu na parkiecie :))

Gwiazdą sonicznej terapii 21 maja 2010r. będzie Illum Sphere z Manchesteru. To jeden z najbardziej ekscytujących młodych producentów w UK, który ma w dorobku kawałki wydane na kilku składankach i dwie świetnie przyjęte EP'ki. Ostatnia "Long live the Plan" zawiera absolutnie powalający numer "Psycho" czy równie wkręcający "Chasing the Midnight Moth" . Jeszcze w kwietniu ma się ukazać kolejna EP'ka "The Plan is Dead" z remiksami Ikoniki, Samiyama, i kolaboracją z Lornem (Brainfeeder) (o tak tak!!)

Illum Sphere popełnił też kilka niezłych remiksów dla: Martyna, Om Unit, Kidkanevil'a czy Graymatter. Uczestnik Red Bull Music Academy 2010, zdobył uznanie takich artystów jak Gaslamp Killera, Ras G, Dam-Funk a jego pierwszy zagraniczny gig miał miejsce w legendarnym klubie Low End Theory w L.A., mecce prężnego ruchu skupiającego świetnych producentów spod znaku "West Coast". Mary Anne Hobbs z BBC1, Brackles czy Thom Yorke z Radiohead wieszczą mu świetlaną przyszłość.

Jego występ to wyjątkowa okazja by powyginać członki w takt pokręconego post hip-hopowego beatu serwowanego w wyjątkowym ekstrakcie złożonym z dubstepu, future garage, idm, aż po abstrakcyjną elektronikę (pod tym względem przypomina Martyn'a). Nie zawsze dudni jak popularni ostatnio dubstep'owi 'działacze' ale na 100% zaserwuje interesującą mieszankę klubowej muzyki spod znaku zdubowanego bassu i IDM'owych wycieczek.

Illum Sphere jest również twórcą i rezydentem najlepszego cyklu imprezowego w Manchesterze - Hoya:Hoya i miał wiele okazji do szlifowania DJ-skiego warsztatu u boku takich zawodników jak Kode 9, Daedelus, Gaslamp Killer, Rustie, Mary Anne Hobbs, Nosaj Thing, Mosca, HudMo, Mark Prichard, Tokimonsta.

Wsparcie lokalne:

data_smog (IdleGravitySlaves, Dublin) - prywatnie brat jubilata a muzycznie wielbiciel ciężkiego bassu, ostatnio eksplorujący również inne odmiany UK urban sound jak UK funky czy future garage. Parkiet zapłonie to pewne a Panie wreszczie poproszą Panów do tańca!

koola (Audiosfera, Wwa) - DJ, promotor, na scenie od niemal dwóch dekad. Zaserwuje jak zwykle eklektyczną mieszankę electro, fidget, banger, nu-disco i Bóg wie jeszcze czego. You can't get more satisfaction!

kwazar (Respecta Kru, Wwa) - jako promotor sprowadził wiele dubstepowych gwiazd do WaWy a stolyca przestała być pustynią na polskiej scenie sub-bassowej. Jego sety DJ'skie wychodzą daleko poza wobble'owe oczywistości.

Facial Index (Wwa) - od wielu lat parający się eksperymentalną elektroniką, ale nie stroniący od dancefloorowego szaleństwa, i porywającego beat'u w baardzo zaskakujących kombinacjach. Absolutny mistrz selekcji i niestrudzonych poszukiwań muzycznych.

sicks a.m. - Who am i? mix


Super tight, bouncy and head-nodding glitch-hop hit parade mix by sicks a.m.hailing from Woodruff in USofA. PANTyRAiD's masterpiece Headcase opens up a fantastic journey through crunky stomp with a crew of heavy-weight champions of dirty, distorted synths, twisted beat and sick, metallic basslines, led by the Denver Bass Squad's badboy Samples, supported by king of subs - Subvert and finally the Aussie sensation, the majestic Opiou plus the usual suspects - Eprom, Ill-gates, Mochipet or Bassnectar. Even if you've already heard most of these tracks, their 'bwamp' factor had not evaporated - they still kick ass big time. Cop it NOW!

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!!

SCHLACHTHOFBRONX - XLR8R PODCAST 8.04.2010 + MAN RECORDINGS PODCAST




My favorite air-horn carnival butchers from Munich, Schlachthofbronx,  finally featured on xlr8r podcast!

LAZER SWORD - SHOT IN THE NITE / KOOPA BOSS MODE 7" (INNOVATIVE LEISURE)


After fantastic The Golden Handshake EP, Low Limit and Lando Kal, acting together again as LAZER SWORD, has released a limited blue vinyl 7" with most surprising, infectious, cheesy-as-hell and shower-friendly track I've heard in a while, namely Shot in the Nite. Since the first hearing, it kinda stuck in my head and now emerges from time to time in most unexpected moments as if shot into my brain by some heavy-duty bionic commando :) A very peculiar tribute to disco funky happiness of the 70's/80's, pure hedonistic uplifting pleasure with uniquely Lazer Sword mutated and crunked up synths. Let's sing and dance together boys and girls to this BANGERRRRRRRRRRRRR !!! This is the tune I could easily bear being played twenty times a day on mainstream, commercial radio stations :) The best tool to create havoc on any dancefloor. Blap to the Future!!!!

In Koopa Boss Mode, the Trapperkeeper meets 3D Action Jackson to deliver the usual plunderphonic madness with plenty of sick samples and cut-up beats squashed together, reprocessed and then spat out on you with head-nodding force. Slow but effective banger!

SPLATINUM - CAPTAIN HOOK (MINDELIXIR VIP REMIX) + PUMPING QUARTERZ REMIX EP

SPLATINUM (Andrew Luck and Dosadi), from Seattle came to my attention through Mochipet and his absolutely smashing remix of their Pumping Quarterz. Now, they spread the werd across the blogosphere distributing 16 remixes of songs from their forthcoming album WE ARE SPLATINUM to be released on Daly City Records on 04/20/2010.

The idea is that each blogger selects one track to be exclusively posted on his/her blog. After listening to all the tracks I believe that Mochipet's remix is still the best, but it has already popped up across the blogosphere. Apart from this, there are at least 6 - 7 equally good reworks of Splatinum's tunes. My next choice then is Captain Hook's VIP remix by Mindelixir. Unsettling, dark mood with heavy dubstep subs hot piano slabs based on a nearly industrial beat and pulsing bassline really caught my attention. Mindelixir is a rising dubstep producer from Charlotte, NC that released his first full length, titled Futurism in March of 2010. He is a busy boy of the Southeast scene, often traveling to play two or three shows a week! Visit his soundcloud for more music and download Splatinum - Captain Hook (Mindelixir VIP Remix) for free:


<a href="http://splatinum.bandcamp.com/track/captain-hook-mindelixer-vip-remix">Captain Hook - Mindelixer VIP Remix by SPLATINUM</a>


With the music I've heard so far from SPLATINUM, they immediately entered my list of to-watch artists and I'm now eagerly awaiting their 2 releases dropping on simultaneously on 20 April:.

1. WE ARE SPLATINUM - 9 track digital release on Daly City Records
2. Der Schplatzl 2010 - 16 track compact disc on Daly City Records (7 tracks are unavailable digitally)

You can preview Der Schplatzl on We Are Splatinum Bandcamp. One of the best and versatile full-length releases I've heard recently. Not to be missed!

<a href="http://splatinum.bandcamp.com/album/der-schplatzl-2010">Intro by SPLATINUM</a>


SPLATINUM will have a FREE outdoor release party in the middle of downtown Seattle called the Intergalactic Masquerade Dance Party on April 20th, from 6-9PM. If you live in the vinicnity - this event is simply a must.

That's not all. Splatinum has also released a Pumping Quaraterz Remixes EP for free!!. Go to their bandcamp to grab the mighty Mochipet remix and other nice refixes from Inaudible, Pericles, Plumblyne, Ill Cosby:

WOOFER COOKERS - The Dons of Glitch Hop from Canada

I owe a lot to Glitch Hop heads from Canada. First, Glitchy & Scratchy's and Dewey dB's (aka Crendore) now legandary mixtape Lazerbass played a fundamental role in my conversion from darkness of dubstep subs to more eclectic heavy bass genres, including glitch hop which I actually called ... lazer bass at that time :)). Secondly, Dewey dB and ill-esha run the best music forum I have had a pleasure to participate in - Glitch Hop Forum which is a meeting point for super talented producers and fans of crunky synths, whompy beat, sick bass and crazy acapellas.

They have recently launched a brand new, nonprofit label run by artists and for artists called Woofer Cookers. It is a companion site to online community Glitch Hop Forum, it showcases original music and merchandise with all proceeds going 100% to the artist or creating entity. Definitely a spot to check if you are looking for fresh bangers and bwampy beats.

Let's start a short review of music goodies available via Woofer Crookers from Jay Wikid's head-nodding Thumping and more downtempo spacy Whispers. I have covered some music and mixes by Jay on my blog, he is definitely a master of sick post hip hop edits riding on a glitch-out sick bass. Check da shizzle out!





Jay Wikid - Thumpin (preview clip) by WooferCookers

Jay Wikid - Whispers (preview clip) by WooferCookers

BONUS: JAY WIKID RELEASED AS A FREE DOWNLOAD A PACKAGE OF HIS EDITS AND REMIXES. GRAB IT HERE

Now, let's give the floor to The Mongoose & Bevvy Swift aka Glitchy & Scratchy from Vancouver, purveyors of twisted bass  and founders of my favorite Canadian crew of Integrated Grime Unit. Their recently released Broken Logic EP on Muti Records rocks the charts on Addictech. Listen to my favorite track from this EP - Embedit here. Then go to Woofer Cookers for more scratched out glitch hop from G&S.



8-Bit Glitch is a fucking monster of the tune, which I clearly remember from their legendary mixtape, now in even more whompy format:

Glitchy & Scratchy - 8-Bit Glitch by WooferCookers

... while Glitchy & Scratchy's remix of Canadian hip-hop crew of 50 Fingaz shows yet another music face of  the duo.

ill-esha adds more vocal flavor to Woofer Cookers stuff, with dubstep-infused Kitchen Sync making serious noise in the blogosphere.

Then comes pumping, heavy and totally infectious dubstep / glitch hop mix from a Bay Area Producer Carly D aka AuDiosa. Her selection of tunes, mixing skills and great music sensitivity really strengthened my faith in dubstep as forward-looking music genre (which I have to admit has been faltering recently). Give it a try - one of the best dubstep mixes I've heard in a while. Highly recommended!

OSCILLATIONS PT. 1


Juslikemusic  me and Apple Juice Break released a fantastic compilation Oscillations pt. 1

"Oscillations is a FREE digital compilation presented by Jus Like Music and Apple Juice Break designed to help spread the word of amazing music by amazing artists from the genres of hip-hop, electronica, neo-soul, dubstep and anywhere in between! Featuring primarily exclusive, or at least previously unreleased material, each of the two parts contains around 20 tracks. The release will also come packaged with a pdf booklet full of info on the artists, plus a showcase of art by an array of incredibly talented visual artists"



This is an absolute must for any fan of future hip-hop / EDM / glitch hop/ beatz and heavy bass. Honestly speaking, I don't recognize more than half of the artists, but this just adds to the charm of this quality compilation. The package starts from a real bomb by Broken Haze hailing from Tokyo, Japan. Block will take your breath away with the sheer power of unrestrained beat and synths, sounding like a joint jam by Glitch Mob and Rustie. Om Unit from UK (well this name you definitely heard!) in equally successful tune goes deeper and darker, while Chairman Kato from London again rides the path of neon synths and heavy bass with lots of bleeps and occasional lazers. Well there are too many tracks to describe them in detail, but an overall quality is really astounding for this type of compilation. Apart from the three above mentioned killers, other highlights were provided by Vital, Decepticon Bootleg Machine, le N?KO, Bluntspeakers and BUG. Great food for your mind and body, already stoked to hear pt. 2!! Go to the bandcamp site and download the entire package for free.

THE GLITCH REPORT


The Glitch Report is a music show on KPFZ 88.1 FM Lake County Community Radio in Northern California. The show is run by a fanatic of bass-heavy sound, Seth Burns who plays off beat and thought provoking music which, as the name suggests, focuses on glitch hop, crunk, but also on dubstep, future garage and similar genres. The Glitch Report airs on Tusedays, 7 to 9pm and re-airs Saturdays at midnight.

If you are fond of lazer synths (well, Seth is a famous die-heard fan of Lazer Sword he he), and sick bowel-twisting bass and look for some new inspirations or want to check hips of unreleased tracks by the West Coast posse - you should definitely check the mixcloud site of The Glitch Report. And if you are an artist looking for an outlet to promote your own productions, don't forget to send nice digital packages to Seth.

Check most recent show from 30 March, including an absolutely killing unreleased track by my favorite combo Lazer Sword - Shot in the Nite. VINTAGE FUNK!!! Plus lots of heavy drilling dubstep, and other highlights in the form Ben Samples's Turn Up  and the recently released epic tune by Rudi Zygadlo -Resealable Friendship (go get this EP, it includes remixes by Slugabed, Starkey, Raffertie and Doshy!!). The last half an hour is an ICEE HOT MIX 3/10 by GHOST ON TAPE.
