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.”

Some say music is journey, I’d have to agree with them. I just spent 10 months building a new catalogue of tunes to release starting today with Glitch in the System – a mixture of multi genre bass tracks compiled by myself from mates that I have met on the road. Glitch in the System is

Flying Lotus releases new track in year end Brainfeeder mix

This post was originally published on this site

A decade ago, Flying Lotus kicked off his independent Brainfeeder record label, where he set out to hone in on the left of center intersections of electronic music and instrumental hip-hop. Since then, the label’s signed experimental artists like Thundercat, The Underachievers, Lapalux, Mr. Oizo, and more.

Moving into 2018, Brainfeeder producer PBDY has released a new collection of Brainfeeder tracks on a new mix, Brainfeeder 2017 ∞ 2018. In it’s SoundCloud description, PBDY’s referred to it as, “A collection of Brainfeeder tracks & rarities as well as a glimpse of what’s to come in 2018.”

The 46-minute mix boasts Brainfeeder exclusives like a Lapalux collaboration with Lousiahhh, as well as work from labelmate Iglooghost, and a few Thundercat remixes. The very last track on the mix is a new instrumental number from the Brainfeeder-boss, Flying Lotus himself, entitled “Quarantine.”

“Quarantine” is a more subdued sound than Flying Lotus’s recent output, specifically the rap-centric You’re Dead! album of 2014, which featured collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Captain Murphy, Snoop Dogg, and more. The instrumentals of the new track shine a light on the endless sonic opportunities and possible avenues for FlyLo’s new record, which he’s recently confirmed he’s currently finishing.

Tracklist:
Locust Toybox – “Kuxir”
Lapalux – “Rotted Arp (feat. Louisahhh)”
Tierra Whack – “Mumbo Jumbo”
Topic – “Sonic Rain”
Iglooghost – “Kodama”
Miguel Atwood-Ferguson – “Kazaru”
Thundercat – “Bus In These Streets (DJ Manny Remix)”
Jameszoo – “Flu (feat. Arthur Verocai) (DJ Manny Remix)”
Louis Cole – “Bank Account”
Thundercat – “Drink Dat Drink Dat (Feat. Wiz Khalifa) (Chopnotslop Remix)”
Lapalux – “Holding On”
Little Snake – “Lilith”
Iglooghost – “Bug Thief”
Locust Toybox – “Godlips”
Ross From Friends – “Crimson”
Thundercat – “Friend Zone”
Louis Cole – “Thinking”
Salami Rose Joe Lewis – “Cool Down”
Iglooghost – “Slow Heal”
Buttress – “We Survived!”

Barclay Crenshaw drops off high-octane Dirtybird Campout set

This post was originally published on this site

Claude VonStroke‘s first love was hip-hop, and as is said, “you never forget your first love.” In an effort to hone in on his love for the genre, VonStroke released a debut LP under his own name, Barclay Crenshaw, in January of 2017 and as the year went on, he released a satiating slew of extraterrestrial-friendly hip-hop, and honeyed-jazz, leading listeners on tantalizing trip-hop odysseys.

In October, Barclay Crenshaw played a cavernous, bass-saturated set at the Dirtybird Campout. After delivering what was largely regarded as one of the best West Coast bass sets of the year, Crenshaw’s now shared the near hour live mix and its an appeasing culmination of unrelinquishing, dirty bass and hip-hop opulence.

Speaking on the mix on his SoundCloud he said,

“Alien visitors have chosen to send messages across our channels of abandoned technology. Our old phone lines are currently running complex data formulas that have allowed enemy visitors to take control of all “A.I.” devices such as Alexa and Siri. This “A.I.” is now fully controlled and the brainwashing of the human population has commenced.”

Continuing, “Barclay Crenshaw took a stand last October somewhere off the grid in Bradley, California – shielding 4,000 listeners from the imminent takeover. The DJ set was actually a series of bass waves deconstructing the brainwashing process. Please listen now to this recording especially if you feel like you are no longer in control of your life. Save yourselves.”

Jauz and Zeds Dead deliver heavy new collaboration ‘Lights Go Down’

This post was originally published on this site

Jauz and Zeds Dead are both respectively wrapping up on career years as 2017 draws to a close. To celebrate two independently successful campaigns, Hooks and DC are linking with Jauz to cap off the year with a bang, teaming up for three back-to-back NYE performances and officially solidifying the union with some new joint music. Linking up for “Lights Go Down” the trio offer up a heavy-handed drum n’ bass-inspired setlist weapon that seamlessly complements both of their distinct production styles.

The three-man outfit show off their shared penchant for pitch-bending vocals and cinematic builds, as “Lights Go Down” spirals into a thunderous uptempo glitch-hop rhythm polished with head spinning, percussive assaults for the breaks. Charging into 2018, the Sharksquad factotum and his veteran Canadian counterparts have now both entered the A&R game, each founding imprints to begin to groom the next generation of up-and-coming DJs and producers with Deadbeats and Bite This. The new offering is being dually released via the two labels, and could hopefully usher in a more cross-label collaborations between these two acts in the future.

Big Gigantic release annual ‘Winter Chill Mix’ Vol. 4 [Free Download]

This post was originally published on this site

With the advent of winter comes a dearth of the massive festivals that define the warmer months so thoroughly. Luckily for those in the dance music community, the colder months often bring some new fiery, high-profile mixes to warm the soul. From RL Grime’s chilling Halloween IV mix to Excision’s heated Shambhala mix (out November 21), artists are drawn to this time of year to release a sort of literary catalog of their growth and closure from certain sonic elements.

Big Gigantic is one of those few electronic acts who’ve only continued to rise to new heights in 2017. The Colorado-based duo comprised of Jeremy Salken and Dominic Lalli have sold out their sixth annual Rowdytown event at Red Rocks, released a full remix album of their 2016 Brighter Future project, and made time this summer to get personal with DA.

The fourth installment of their “Winter Chill Mix” is a funky, fun collection of sounds to match the season — complete with changing tempos, smooth saxophone transitions from Dom, and a hip-hop groove appeal that is a gift to any holiday party this year. From the Big G’s inclusion of Hayden James‘ chilling ballad “Numb” to their very own ID remix of Alina Baraz and Khalid‘s “Electric,” the full mix signals a tempered and soothing take on what was and what is to come on the horizon of their growth and change.

Tracklist:
Heatweaver – Jaw Gems
Numb (feat. GRACE) – Hayden James
Stay Close – Anth M
Feel It Still – Portugal. The Man (Nikö Blank Remix)
Braindrain – Sun Parade
Promises (feat. Noah Slee) – Ben Esser
Flight Of The Flamingo – Flamingosis
Listen To Soul, Listen To Blues – SAFIA
Closer (feat. Jennie A.) – Lemaitre
Bring The Funk Back – Big Gigantic (The Geek x Vrv Remix)
Electric (feat. Khalid) – Alina Baraz (ID remix)
No Fear – DeJ Loaf
Hands (feat. Denai Moore) – Point Point
C’mon (feat. GRiZ) – Big Gigantic (Cloudchord Remix)
South Of The River – Tom Misch
Am I Wrong (feat. Schoolboy Q) – Anderson Paak
Walk With Me (feat. KUČKA) – Cosmo’s Midnight
Over & Under – Party Pupils
Side King – Jaw Gems (Dom Sax Outro mix)

Marvel Years – Bigger Than We Feel ft. JuBee

This post was originally published on this site

Cory Wythe, the electro-soul producer and instrumentalist behind Marvel Years, is a promising young talent out of Vermont. His artful blend of dance music and soul-shredding guitar offers a unique hybrid of glitch, retro-funk, classic rock, jazz, and hip-hop that has gained support from Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, Gravitas Recordings, and Gem & Jam Festival. Coming off the release of his EP, The Arrival, in early 2017, Marvel Years has released a string of singles before the year has even come to a close.

His latest output, “Bigger Than We Feel,” featuring singer/rapper JuBee, is a laid back electro-soul tune with an inspirational message that is fitting for today’s uncertain times. Complete with chiming synths, funky breakdowns, a stunning horns section, and a catchy hook, the song evokes an overwhelming desire to uplift and enlighten those around us. Wythe speaks deeper about the track in his own words,

“Despite the chaos we’ve been seeing around the world and how that makes us feel, we need to realize that we’re all a little bigger than we feel and we all play an important role into shaping our future.”
