I heard people talk about this song during Kyary’s US performances in both LA and NYC, “Kyary has a dubstep song” they all claimed. I searched a bit for concert footage but the distortion in the audio made it mostly unbearable. The PV for this song is finally out and I’m pretty happy with it, Kyary is weird, the drop is somewhat expected but pretty damn satisfying.
Apologies for not posting more frequently, if you follow me on Twitter you may have found out that I had pretty intense back surgery and am now in rehab learning how to walk all over again. I’ll try to post more from here, I really wasn’t feeling it when I was in the hospital but here it seems like a nice distraction.
Think about a car full of your “post hardcore death sludge metal” heroes ( They do love stuff like Meshuggah, Cryptopsy, Napalm Death, Mike Patton’s projects, etc) crashing on a Bus full of electronic gear stolen from Noisia, Venetian Snares and Igorrr’s studio.
It slaps, rattles, scrapes, breaks just how you’ll like it if ever you have some love for the aforementioned peeps…
SOMEONE HAS BEEN READING MY SECRET MUSIC DIARY. SOMEONES.
More filthy music from the BedroomResearch label. BedroomResearch: they’ll sleep on it.
One of the 5 excellent promo mixes for an event that happened in November in LA, excellent combination of all that UK grime business.
Lately I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards songs that give me peace, even if only for a few moments. This is one of those songs that just feels…serene, which goes a long way when your brain is screaming at you at 3 am.
More listening: the album it comes from, The Dread Of An Unknown Evil is equal parts dark, intimate and smooth.
Seriously fun EP from OVERWERK, it has all of the crunchiness that I want out of electro accompanied by small but awesome vocal samples,
OVERWERK has several more tracks and remixes over on his SoundCloud.
First of all: this blog reached 100 followers! Thanks! I hope you listen to and enjoy the music I’m posting here, I certainly enjoy telling others about it!
Dub FX is a street performer and amazing loop beatboxer from Melbourne, Australia. He’s quite the avid traveler and prolific musician although usually stays in the dub, d’n’b, reggae, hip-hop and dubstep (old school, not Skrillstep) genres. “Take me Away“‘s vocals are provided by Fernquest, an MC from South Wales (if you’ve never encountered this style of hip-hop vocals, it’s pretty typical of the UK scene).
This video where he describes how me plays his sounds is both an amazing song and completely fascinating.
You should also check out Dub FX’s album Everythinks A Ripple.
Taken from his breakdown of the tracks on the EP (full article):
4. Eres Tú
Eso de proyectar sabrosura todo el rato puede ser un gran dolor de cojones. Este tema salió como una confesión personal, ya que normalmente toco alrededor de 70 veces por año y nunca estoy en un lugar lo suficiente como para pillar confianza. Ha sido todo un proceso el aprender a estar solo, a apreciar el momento y a quienes te ofrecen su compañía. La parte movida de este track es un merengue futurista que interpreto en mi cabeza como una ultra-fiesta, el momento de estar rodeado de gente en un ritual de alegría. Luego la parte del dubstep es el bajón mismo, esa resaca emocional al día siguiente, momento en que vuelves a dejar todo atrás y empiezas de nuevo.
A rough translation by yours truly:
4. Eras Tú
Bringing the party all the time can be a giant pain in the ass. This track came up as a sort of personal confession since I normally play around 70 times a year and I’m never in the same place long enough to build up confidence with someone. It’s been a huge learning process trying to learn to be on my own, live in the moment and be grateful for the people who do come along for the ride. The upbeat part of this track is a future merengue that I think of as a huge party, that moment when you’re surrounded by people in a happy ritual. The dubstep part is the comedown, that next-day emotional hangover, the moment where you once again leave everything behind and start fresh.
Nobody could put it better.
