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.

Dance for HAITI in San Diego Friday JAN 22

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2010 by worldromper

You have texted in your donations to the tune of several million dollars, but the people of Haiti need hell of a lot more than that. What better way to help others out than by dancing?

Presented by 8:39 Productions and held at my favorite venue in San Diego, the Kava Lounge, this event is made possible by several members of the SD electronic music community donating their time, mad skillz on the decks, lighting equipment, artwork and a boss sound system. So get the hell out of your house (even if it’s raining, SoCal, AHEM) and come not only to get down and but to also give hope to the people of Haiti as they begin to rebuild their lives.

100% of the proceeds from Dance for Haiti will go to the American Red Cross Haiti Disaster Relief and Development Fund. $5 minimum donation is requested; of course you can give more if you would like to.

ARGYLE Mix in Big Up Magazine: Dubstep from the Whale’s Vagina

Posted in LISTEN TO THIS with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2009 by worldromper

2009 has shown that bass music knows no bounds on the West Coast, and all up and down the Pacific shores we’re gettin’ lefty-loosey on this bitch. From the Glitch Hop Forum crew up in Vancouver and my Bellingham couch-throwing tribe to my peeps in Ashland, Oregon with their curly hair under ballcaps and the mad motherfuckers in LA, people are pooling to this sound, ears to the ground and bellies hungry for more.

Down in San Diego (aka the Whale’s Vagina) beside lots of smoking weed on the beach, there is a small and fervent dubstep scene going on with a few passionate individuals leading the way and converting others to the dark side as they do. Two of these such forward-thinkers, Puppy Kicker and EshOne (known collectively as Argyle) have put together this mix for Big Up Magazine, a dubby wonder of all original productions with a little help from their friends.
