Get down with Oliver Tree and Whethan’s new joint ‘Movement’

This post was originally published on this site

In a day when memes can become rappers — where the Bhad Bhabies and Big Shaqs of the internet are out here scoring major record deals (honorable mention, Mason Ramsey) — somehow living meme incarnate Oliver Tree is actually flipping the already wild idea on its head. Although signed to a major label himself, he’s warping indie-rap into something completely new, and ultra-contemporary, and considering the rhymer’s hilarious aesthetic, it’s ironically working, really well. Putting on his own blend of tenacious electro-punk/hip-hop, his latest,”Movement,” falls right in line, with a lo-fi gut-punch anchored around Tree’s fearlessly swaggering versework.

The Whethan-produced track lays down a plucking bass line with the beat building into a thundering glitch-hop backdrop on which the Alien Boy wunderkind delivers his latest bars. Proving to be a formidable pairing with Whethan once again following “Enemy,” Oliver Tree adds another rinse-worthy hybrid cut to his arsenal with “Movement.”

Diplo has a production credit on a forthcoming Turnstile track

The question “what would Diplo do?” might best be rephrased as “what is Diplo doing;” the electronic virtuoso’s next step ever unpredictable. Diplo has quickly shifted gears from his recent photoshoot with L’Uomo Vogue to earn a production credit on “Right To Be,” a track expected to appear on Turnstile’s LP Time & Space, due out on February 23.

The accreditation adds “hardcore” to the extensive list of genres with which Diplo has been involved over the course of his career. Given that Diplo boasts quite a star studded list of previous productions for artists ranging from Die Antwoord to Big Sean, however unexpected Diplo’s work with hardcore style arrives, his influence on the forthcoming Turnstile track can only be expected to be advantageous for the punk crew.

Jameston Thieves – Ghost

This post was originally published on this site

Genre-agnostic producer and Phoenix native Jameston Thieves is back with new music with the bassy single “Ghost.”

His latest track seamlessly smashes together ambient, uplifting chords with a raw gritty bassline. Synthesized vocals add a unique flair to the track during the intro and make way for a heavy drop that is a welcome surprise from the intro that skews towards punk rock. While there is certainly a lot going on within “Ghost,” Thieves displays his remarkable production ability as it seamlessly blends together.

The Bloody Beetroots announce long-awaited new LP ‘The Great Electronic Swindle’

This post was originally published on this site

Masked mayhem maker and electro punk pioneer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo has officially announced the release of the Bloody Beetroots‘ long-awaited third studio album, The Great Electronic Swindle. The new record will feature a slew of musical talent from outside of the electronic music spectrum, ranging from Aussie rockers JET to Anders Friden of In Flames to most recently, self-proclaimed EDM hater Perry Farrell on the album’s new single “Pirates, Punks, and Politics” released today with the album’s announcement.

Rifo, who is celebrating his masked moniker’s tenth anniversary in 2017, has always maintained a renegade association with electronic music, and his new album, loaded with collaborations, is expected to continue the artistic progression of the Bloody Beetroots’ rebellious relationship with dance music. Regarding the record’s unapologetic title, Rifo explains,

“The title is a tribute to the Sex Pistols and the film ‘The Great Rock and Roll Swindle’ directed by Julian Temple.  It was a sign of the end of an era. The end of Punk.  I want to reclaim that for electronic music because the business squeezed the genre so much that they delivered the end of electronic music itself.  We are living in a great electronic swindle.”

The Great Electronic Swindle is due October 20 via Canadian imprint Last Gang. Stream the Bloody Beetroot’s latest, “Pirates, Punks, and Politics” here.
