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.
“Another silver mojito, xie xie”, it had been far too long since my last stint off-world and almost as long since I was in the real. Closing my eyes makes me dizzy, far too much time without closing them does that. The beach on this moon stretched for miles, pre-Sprawl neo-Caribbean, but without the cruise liners; white sands, palm trees, unnecessary necessary tiki bar, the works. A band had finished setting up near the large acoustic shell by the bar, the lead gets on the mic, nods and starts playing some notes on his computer…
Someone described this as cyberpunk fusion jazz. I can’t think of a more apt description.
From Christian Calhoun of Medina, Ohio, Cooshinator is a hyper dancey project that draws influences from Fighter X, TREYFREY, Sabrepulse, USK, little-scale and Electric Children. I’ve never turned down an EP for having a dumb name, I’m not about to start now, this is exactly what my week needed, some booty-shaking classic chip.

Here’s a cool idea from Bleep: they had their staff pick the 100 best tracks from the year 2012 and put them together in a compilation for you to buy in MP3/WAV/FLAC.
The team have picked the best in all styles of music, from house music and techno through to the the more experimental spheres of electronic music and indie / alternative rock.
I’m almost halfway through listening to the whole thing and there are some really excellent tracks in there, a lot of stuff that’s completely new to me. Wow, that was AMAZING. Highly, highly recommended.
Sure, it’s $45 for the MP3 version, but that’s half the price of an iTunes or Amazon download. HALF THE PRICE. Get on this, it’s a fascinating tour through 2012 in music and it’s only available until February 6th!
First released over at CalmDownKidder Records, L-trons new EP reminds me of a conversation we had one night after a show about pushing a single DMG to its limits. I would have thought the EP after that conversation would be some sort of speedcore monstrosity, instead we go, as James so calmly put it:
Dsknekt is the result of many years of creating music, which ranges from “full on party classic”, to “even more full on party classic”
Sometimes your life just needs a little party classic.
In my quest to further share some of the chipmusic I experienced while in Japan here’s TORIENA’s particular flavor of dance music. There’s a melody quality to TORIENA’s music that reminds me of some of the fast-paced high-pitch vocal melodies that happen in Japanese pop music that I quite enjoy.
A note on the pricing: yes, I understand $16 is quite a bit for a digital copy of a 10-track album. I mostly want you all to hear the music I post, you don’t have to buy it unless you sincerely want to support the artist. I personally think $8 is the right amount for a digital album, especially with the option to pay more the way Bandcamp makes it possible.
Vocal-heavy electro from The Hair Kid makes me wonder whatever happened to the Audio Bullys. The Hair Kid’s foray into original tracks is an electrifying eye-opener from the previously remix-mostly DJ, an electro-disco Beastie Boys breath of fresh air.
gotta get hip to electrohop
Don’t miss: the video for Android Poppin’, off of this very EP
Also check out: The Hair Kid’s Soundcloud, featuring pretty much every remix and bootleg remix he’s made.
It’s hard for me to describe dendy crew’s tracks? I can say the the following 2 things for certain:
How did I get here? What is this wonderful music? Tech…no….as the citizens call it.
Montreal’s own Pocaille falls firmly into one of my favorite categories of house music: No-nonsense House. Strictly for Dancing and That’s OK is a qualification that should never be frowned upon. If you need more, there are several live mixes up on his website.
