The week of good mixes continues. On Tuesday I've got for you a load of ultra heavy and distorted beats from the West Coast. Sugarpill is a prolific and talented producer from LA, a permanent feature on the glitch hop map for years now. He is about to release his Mind Machine EP on Simplify Recordings , a label which I highly recommend checking as their arstist roster is growing constantly and apart from Sugarpill, includes other talented producers of the glitch hop / heavy bass / dubstep scene, like e.g. Detroit-based Freddy Todd (his double LP Neon Spectacle Operator - heavy, psychedelic and full of great concepts is a very ambitious and successful work of art - don't sleep on this) Love & Light (Crunk Junkee EP), NiT GriT, Claw, verb+ and many others. Expect big things from them in 2011.READ MORE...
Coming back to the mix - Sugarpill selected his own orginals and remixes to create a nearly one hour mixtape which, and this does not happen often with this type of mixes, grabs you by the balls (pardon my French) at the start and does not release the pressure until the very end. The listener is attacked with distorted bleeps and glitches, choped up acapellas, spacey and loopy melodies, and everything is nicely wraped into mid-tempo heavy basslines. If you are approached by your buddies asking for 10th time "Hey dude wtf is glitch hop" - just give them this mix :) Not necessarily your typical dancefloor stomp, but powerful robotic music anyway. Me likes a lot!
