MISK: Saturation (Free Album Download)

Posted in Album News & Reviews, LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , on July 11, 2010 by worldromper

So have you figured it out yet? Misk has.

With dreamy, slung-out beats, Saturation trips fluidly towards the apocalypse, collecting sounds under ocean piers, behind locked doors and in neon daydreams for a sonic time capsule of the end of days that is unfortunately destined to eaten by the earth’s wonk-loving zombie overlords for breakfast the morning of their arrival.

Interesting and emotive, Misk’s music wakes up your heart and your head; the intricate texture and ponderous design of the album never get in the way of the tactile sensations it produces. Download the entire album for free here or ante up a few dollars to support this promising producer from San Diego who is helping de-bro the city’s reputation one beat at a time.

If you like your bass music thrashingly violent and disturbing like a crack rock sandwich that punches you in the face repeatedly and then slaps your sister on the ass, maybe you should check out this mix from Seattle-based Partners in Grime.

Shoved full of dubstep bangers, popping glitch hop and even some demonwhore drumstep, this is a fine set of choons to start your weekend with:

LORN: Exclusive New Mix & Interview on Dubspot Radio

Posted in Interviews, LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , , , , on July 6, 2010 by worldromper

Some music sinks hooks deep into my brain and pulls new ideas out, inspiring me to create art of my own, to write, to pace my living room, to stay up late reading The Myth of Sisyphus. The best music or any kind of art changes the way you see the world; voilà ceci de Lorn, who recently released one of my favorite albums of the year on Brainfeeder, Nothing Else.

The half-hour mix ends with the unreleased 13th track of the album “Until There Is No End,” followed by a short interview with the Milwaukee-based artist that gear nerds will love but everyone can appreciate. Check the Dubspot Radio post for another mix by host Matt Shadetek of Dutty Artz.

SPLATINUM “Love For Those Hustlers” Album Download *FREE*

Posted in Album News & Reviews, LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , on June 20, 2010 by worldromper

In a world where most artists are loathe to even crack a smile on their profile pictures, you gotta love a production team that regards their music and indeed the whole world with a wink, a laugh and maybe a little humping- or at least I do.

Seattle pair Splatinum has just released their latest oeuvre Love For Those Hustlers on Bass Drop Music for free; the single “Vadonna’s Magina” was featured in XLR8R, and you can download the entire album here.

With a stanky-sweet remix of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Posse on Broadway” and track titles like “Know About the Dirty South” and “It’s Bigger Than Glitch Hop,” it is obvious that these guys had fun making the album, almost as much as you’ll have listening to it.

Splatinum is booked to play this year’s Decibel Festival, held in Seattle September 23-26. I will be there front and center, getting dumb to to 808 kick drum.

FRIDAY MIX: Psymbionic Live at Wakarusa 2010

This mix is a solid hour of well-designed, whomp-ridden glitchy goodness with huge tunes and a smack of psychedelica. And if you don’t know Psymbionic out of Austin, heads up motherfucker, ‘cuz now you do.

Just in time for the Friday night prefunk!
