SHIFT Dubstep Droppin’ Seattle Selections Like RAINBOMBS

Posted in LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2009 by worldromper

Dubstep fits well in the city of Seattle; the overcast and often dreary climate is the perfect partner for this bass-heavy genre and the grime of Seattle gives its dubstep a dirty edge that can’t wipe away even if you wanted it to.

Shift Recordings drops Seattle Selections today; this compilation album features many of the Pacific Northwest’s rising stars and fresh voices in electronic music including KJ Sawka, Lukki, Dubtek, Sublo, Kid Simple and much more.

Check the Dubstep Forum thread here and buy the album June 9th on Beatport, Digital Tunes, Juno UK or Addictech. And then get down.

Beatport Article: Los Angeles Claims USA’s Dance Crown

The article is from October of 2008 so some of you may have read it, but as a recent transplant to the center of the universe, I just came across it. Read it here.

My favorite quotes:

“Minimal techno is now huge in Los Angeles.”

“There is no trance or progressive house, but rather bleeding-edge techno and electronica.”

Yessssssssssssssssss. IX-NAY on the ANCE-TRAY!

Innerflight Music Release on Beatport *NEW MUSIC*

Posted in LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , , , , , , on February 6, 2009 by worldromper

Innerflight is one of Seattle’s premier music collectives that consistently throws great shows with tight music and a golden vibe. The morning after an Innerflight party I always have a serious case of face-ache from smiling like an idiot for the entire night.

Their new music release on Beatport features Mynus, Gel-Sol, Nick Douglas and novaTRON whose track I tipped you off to in an earlier post. Click below and have a listen!
