m-flo’s PV for ALIVE which came out sometime last year. To be honest, Square One is the only m-flo album I’ve heard but I loved pretty much every moment of it.
I tried searching for a link so that you could listen to Square One but neither Amazon, iTunes, Rdio or Spotify had it available for listen/purchase. (╯-_-)╯彡┻━┻ *cough*it’snothard*cough*
An older release on the same netlabel as doremimate, シャルロ/Charlot makes some excellent house/electro jams, including a house track that samples Edward Meeker’s American classic, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”.
Also check out their post-rock, shoegaze release from last year titled Out of Orbit. The mood is completely different but it is oh-so-lovely.
Happy Friday! Have a cool weekend :D
More listening: the doremimate remixes album
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I saw the tags “Neurohop”, “Jumpstep” and “Breakcore” next to each other but I was still impressed. There’s a lot of good stuff on this mix, but the thing that sealed the deal was the speedcore fart sample version of Ace of Base’s “All That She Wants”.
storz was my surprise for this evening, I had never heard of him or his music so I had no idea what to expect. At first, I thought it was almost unfair for storz to open the show, the guy wasn’t just talented, he got everybody packed into tiny Sabaco dancing. As the night went on I realized storz was just sliver of the face destruction to follow (p.s. if face found, please return to this address).
After Burial EP is closer to the breaks side of breakcore and reminds me A LOT of Sabrepulse’s Turbo City album.
More: storz’s break/speedcore remixes of a handful of tunes (it’s Pay-What-You-Can, throw the guy some yen!), a direct link to storz’s 2012 demo (right click and Save As or Save Link As) which includes an AMAZING cover of Rustie’s “Ultra Thizz”
Listen, I feel bad. By the time you read this I’ll have been in Tokyo having all the fun at Blip Tokyo 2012 and you may not be. Don’t worry, here’s Bokusatsu Shoujo Koubou and MARU303 with an EP to melt your goddamn face off. TURN UP THE SPEAKERS, I WANT TO HEAR THEM ALL THE WAY FROM TOKYO.
p.s. the Download link is at the bottom right corner of the screen. I had trouble finding it too.
You may recognize this riddim, you may not. It’s perhaps the most rerecorded of all the classic Jamaican reggae riddims. Seriously, the wiki article is worth a read. Japan’s SEXY-SYNTHESIZER does Jamaican music’s first fully computerized riddim justice with this chipmusic cover.
Happy weekend y’all! B-)
Happy Monday! I’m sure you’ve had enough caffeine to process this music video by now. There are few places where rockin’ the Kid ‘n Play hairdo is still acceptable, but luckily, Japan is one of them. The track was produced by Okadada, which I’ve posted about before and has that superb boogie-down feeling.
Don’t worry about the lyrics, just remember that it’s a new week and it’s time to GET IT ON.
In that almost eerie way that only Japan knows how, here we have an album by okadada that treads that delightful mix of hip-hop beats and future funk disco. I don’t have a car nor do I ever plan on owning one, but I would probably bump this while driving around a city at night if that were ever a situation I found myself in. Oh hypotheticals…
Happy Monday everyone!
I’ve been enjoying this the last two days, it’s all of the crunchy bass that Cheapshot is well known for with the comfortable listening time of an album. Clocking in at 45 minutes, Streets of Bass adopts the prog-rock (or at least I think it comes from prog-rock) concept of album sections or “Levels” in this album. Serving as a logical separator between sonic styles, each level forms a soundtrack backdrop to either the starting beach, the downtown brawl or the boss’s mansion.
Track you shouldn’t miss: “Barmy”
Bonus PSA: Speaking of Cheapshot, there is a show in Philadelphia which I will regrettably not be able to attend, but Cheapshot, ???, XC3N and others will be playing this Saturday, March 31st. I think this might be Cheapshot’s first US performance?
