New Album from Seekae +DOME

Posted in LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , on October 12, 2011 by worldromper

Australian group Seekae will release their new album +DOME in the U.S. on November 1, and will be heading over the water to play several shows at CMJ as well as a performance on the West Coast at world-renowned club night Low End Theory. Like long-lost beat brethren, Seekae’s sound is a lush and beautiful fusion of experimental electronica, hip hop and “other” (read a review in Resident Advisor here), and +DOME is one of those releases you hit “repeat” on again and again.

In anticipation of their U.S. album release date, Seekae has given us a new bonus track “SIR” which can be found right here on the Los Angeles Times.

New MOCHIPET Album “Chicxulub” – Free MP3 on XLR8R

Posted in Album News & Reviews, Events, Music News with tags , , , on August 8, 2011 by worldromper

Mochipet drops a new album CHICXULUB next Tuesday August 16 on STS9’s 1320 Records, a melody-driven romp through a dinosaur dreamworld whose fun energy will be welcomed on dance floors all over – and good thing, because Mochipet sets off on a tour throughout the US in September, beginning with the Burn.

XLR8R has posted the first single off the album for free download, “Yoshi’s Dinosaur Egg Hunt,” calling it “an energetic slice of epic beat work that matches videogame-style arpeggiators (check the title) along with an over-powering breakbeat and a healthy dose of low-end rumble.”


Mochipet Tour Dates:

09/01 – 09/04 Black Rock City NV@ Burning Man

09/08 THU – Asheville NC @ The One Stop

09/09 FRI – Atlanta GA @ Apache Café

09/10 SAT – Charleston SC @ Charleston Pour House

09/14 WED – Durango CO @ Abbey Theatre

09/16 FRI – Denver CO @ The Summit

09/23 FRI – Madison WI @ Majestic Theatre

09/29 THU – St Louis MO @ The Old Rock House

New Dubstep Weekly: HEAVY Launches Thursday, June 23 @ Echoplex

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , on June 11, 2011 by worldromper

It’s hard to believe that with the undeniable upsurge in popularity that dubstep has experience in the past few years that there is no weekly dubstep night in Los Angeles.

That’s all about to change with the launch of HEAVY, an all-dubstep night on the east side at the Echoplex which will take place every Thursday. This new event is 18+, the cover is $10 and with the big capacity of the Echoplex, should be a rightful banger.

Resident DJs will be local legend 6Blocc, as well as Daddy Kev and DJ Nobody of Low End Theory fame. Special guests will perform every week, and word on the street is that some pretty big names are lined up to play the first several weeks of events.

Find more information on the HEAVY Facebook event page, and follow HEAVY on Twitter for all the late-breaking updates about this new weekly event.

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , on November 10, 2010 by worldromper

Those who witnessed the beyond-wild Low End Theory stage at the Eagle Rock Music Festival last month will have fond memories of the north Los Angeles neighborhood. Now beat freaks of all ages can return on a monthly basis to the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts for FUTURA, a new future music monthly curated by Teebs (whose exquisite album Ardour just dropped on Brainfeeder) and Asura of Non Projects.

The monthly launches this Friday November 12 with performances by the curators and special guest Quartetto Fantastico, a string quartet that slides towards jazz and features Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. Creating visuals for the arts-centric night are none other than Flying Lotus and Strangeloop. Read more about the event in the LA Weekly here.
