Jay Scarlett – Future Sounds For My Classic Generation

September 24, 2008

Whispered to a couple o’ my close heads yesterday that I was intending to unveil a midweek world exclusive today.

I kid not.

This is a fresh-off-the-stove melting pot (not single-track, individual mp3s) masterminded by tastemaker Jay Scarlett of the internationally renowned Beat Dimensions movement: champions of the bold, brazen, progressive and fearless future of music.

Those of you who copped Jay and Cinnaman’s Beat Dimensions Vol. 1 courtesy of us will know what to anticipate: a seamless selection of spacey, bugged out, glitched-up, forehead-knockin’, ultramodern Soul, Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Grime and other Electronic hybrids alongside classic, organic vibes. This man has his fingers on the pulse of these evolving genres (if one can even box them like that which I doubt). You may want to listen in, in dread of being left behind…

This compilation was recently completed in private conjunction with Reebok (and otherwise may not have seen the light of day) though I’m notified it’s getting pushed for a wider drop later this month. Disc jockeys, promoters, bloggites, audiophiles, forum dwellers, honour Your Mum: get this out there as far as possible, make the world pay attention to that next generation.

Props going out to my source for the fantastic voyage.

The Long Lost – Woebegone (Flying Lotus Remixes)

September 22, 2008

Two trippy new remixes. Well, ‘Luckiest Charm’ is a couple months aged but I much prefer it to the other; I love when Fly-Lo dabbles in Brazilian.

The Long Lost = Laura Darlington + husband Alfred Darlington (you’ll know him as Daedelus).

The original ‘Woebegone’ should be out on Ninja Tune at the end of the month.

Props to Alex at All Young Kings for sending them through.

Afta-1 – Aftathought Vol. 1

September 17, 2008

Eyes wanting closure, head begging rest; yet duty calls and bloody blogging prevails.

I’m lying in bed right now having this soaring sensory experience bumping Californian electronic/experimental Hip-Hop producer Afta-1’s debut instrumental LP with my headphones fully engaged. In comparison to the fresh hoards of “Glitch-Hop” aspirants, this stands out as one of the most Soulful palettes I’ve heard with heavier emphasis on melody and a less mechanized perversion of the groove. Still there’s tingles, twitches, head-nodders, euthermic bass and even an industrial sensuality if there can be such a thing.

In short, these compositions flow seamlessly like a volcanic spring oozing blunt-scented perfume which forms an estuary around your dome that you can backstroke in. And if analogies aren’t your bag, then lie down and just play the damn thing with the lights off.

It’s mood music. Swim.

Hudson Mohawke – Ooops! (Oh My) (Tweet Re-Edit)

September 10, 2008

How do you take one of my cherished Rn’B songs (concerning fem-masturbation) from the teen years and entirely resurrect the sexy beast?

The Glitch-Hop-Dub-Grime-Timbaland of the United Kingdom, Hud Mo, adds further testament to his future greatness…

Play loud. Retrieve tissue. And Polyfilla (for walls).

Various Assets – Not For Sale Vol. 4 (Red Bull Music Academy 2007 CD Snippets)

September 8, 2008

Couldn’t stay holdin’ onto these priceless numbers now could I? Such innovative, refreshing, avant-minded music is churned out annually at the Red Bull Music Academy; I really must Solid Snake stealth sneak up into that motherfucker one day, a few little taps on the Korgs and MPCs and I gaurantee you I’ll end up remixing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ into a talismanic, new-age, glitch-hop jingle.

The Jake One + Muhsinah collaboration here is outstanding; what an adorably eccentric creature she is, defiant of Rn’B songwriting banalities. Now if only I could get the whole damn CD (non-purchase exclusive industry shit they say), so take a-quarter-of-a-damn-disc and get you some wings (forgive this inevitable carbonated soft-drink punchline).

Props to Universoul for the goodies.
