Finest Ego: Dza's Guest Mix 001 [DWNLD]


Witness the launch of a brand new series of guest mixes from famed Finest Ego, purveyors of international talent. Curated by Dza, this Red Bull Music Academy grad has had a pretty busy year since his attendance @ the London edition of the Academy. But the Russian scene has been repped very well, with Dza holding it down lovely.

And can I add, this artwork by Aske! is just smashing? Yup.

Teebs: Pretty Poly [DWNLD]

I knew this would come in handy. I had been sitting on this track Teebs posted some time back to his tumblr, and simply forgot to post about it.
No better time than present.
In light of his visit to Toronto this week, along with the rest of the Dublab massive, it's only right I post this track for all to enjoy.
Teebs is a cat who'e music I feverishly awaited with every leak and exclusive that came through. Ardour was a big record in my books and still gets tons of play.
So when I got wind of this track from Teebs, carte blanche here. That's for sure.

Teebs - Pretty Poly


Don't forget that Teebs and the rest of Dublab will be in Toronto Friday June 10th for Tonalism.

The Facebook Event page is here. A must.

Cosmopolyphonic Radio: Fitz Ambrose Guest Mix [DWNLD]

It's only right. Repping JPN by way of the Canadian East Coast, we got Fitz Ambro$e who's been selected to curated the Cosmopolyphonic Guest Mix #22.

You can also listen to this Cosmopolyphonic Guest Mix #22 and enjoy his personal selection of tracks.

Slugabed: Moonbeam Rider EP [DWNLD]

It's been quote a hot min since, I've chatted dude's name. But 1stly, wanted to send Slugabed a shout for the Ninja Tune signing. Great look. Nice to see Ninja taking a look @ the new gen of bass music and it's producers.
Based out of Brighton, Slugabed's been putting in work, and putting out tracks, from remixes to much of his original works. I used to bump into him on message boards (like that means anything), and finally got to play a show together a few yrs back.
Recently came the signing to Ninja Tune, and he's finally got an EP due out... tomorrow.

If you've ever peeped Slugabed's music, he's always had bangers. Going through my catalog, my 1st riddims were from 2008. I had his famed Superfreak rmx, and of course clunk clunk.
He's def had some releases since then and that all eventually led to tomorrow's big day: Moonbeam Rider EP.

He's had a teaser up for the last few days, so you can hear some of it.


You can also listen to individual tracks on the Ninja Tune site. In stores and online tomorrow June 6th for all to enjoy,

And here's a gift. At somepoint, I know he posted this track from his twitter acct. I had it sitting here, for when my next post came up. So. here it is. Enjoy.

Kelpe: Same New Era

Not dropped a line to my mans Kelpe in a min. At least not since that Margins EP dropped a min ago. But what's this?? A new single coming out of the MYOR camp.

We have a fresh upper middle tempo joint, from Kelpe, that can certain speak to a dance floor like it will speak to a nice iPod mix. But man, this rmx by Niño is hella fresh. Pretty dramatic if I can say, with some welcomed vocals on top of some great drum programming. And best is this cadence that doubles up left and right on this track, adding to the impressive and impassioned track. Good call. Don't have much deets on this one, but keep your eyes and ears peeled. ;)

Dublab Presents: Tonalism

Man, this has been month in the making and I'm so happy to see this coming to TORONTO. Yup. There's so much that should be discussed but i'll simply describe it like this: Dublab invades Toronto.
In what will be an incredible 12hr event, we will witness some of Dublab's great come to Toronto, @ the Music Gallery, just north of Queen off John.

So much to talk about, and I will throughout this whole week, leading to the June 10th event.
In attendance, will be Frosty, Dntel, Teebs, Matthewdavid, Julia Holter, Suzanne Craft and Alexandra Pelly.

Attached is the press release which will outline all deets.

Friday June 10 • the Music Gallery presents

An All Night, 12 Hour, Multi-Media, Season Closing Fundraising Event for the Music Gallery!

Julia Holter
Suzanne Kraft
With projections by Alexandra Pelly

Plus special guests to be announced day of show via Facebook and Twitter!

Co-presented with 92BPM, breakandenter and Promise
Part of the New World / Summer Courtyard Series

Inspired by ambient music happenings of the ‘60s, the L.A. web radio collective transforms St. George the Martyr Church into an immersive multi-media experience

Event runs 6pm to 6am

Tickets $22 advance at Rotate This, Soundscapes & Ticketweb
At the door: $25 regular, $20 member

Please note: Part of this concert will take place outdoors in the Courtyard of St. George the Martyr. Seating is not guaranteed. In the event of inclement weather, the event will move inside.

The Los Angeles-based Dublab Collective recently celebrated 10 years at the vanguard of Internet broadcasting. For the final Music Gallery event of the season, they bring their all-night Tonalism installation of sound and visuals to Toronto for the first time.

Whether innovating with webcasting, exploring magic turntablism or spinning far-out, eclectic sets, Dublab reflects all shades of future roots music. Dublab chops and channels cultural influences, musical epochs and sound sources from around the world using digital alchemy. They complement their fevered musical constructions with many types of visual stimulation, from film projects to myriad multi-media performance ideas. Past participants in Dublab have included Cluster, Ranking Joe, Madlib, Morton Subotnick, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Terry Callier, Flying Lotus, Nobukazu Takemura and El Guincho.

Over the course of 12 hours, Dublab will transform every part of the Music Gallery into an all night multimedia happening not unlike something you would find in Toronto’s annual Nuit Blanche. Patrons in the Courtyard, Fellowship Room and Sanctuary will be immersed in kaleidoscopic sweep of sound, light, original artwork and performances. Tonalism is strongly inspired by the 1960's sound-art actions of Marion Zazeela, Lamonte Young, Terry Riley and Yoko Ono. The audience is encouraged to bring pillows, sleeping bags and wide open ears. 

From a musical perspective, Dublab: Tonalism will feature some of the finest exponents of the “low end theory” generation of bass-heavy electronics of Southern California. A new crop of innovators in electronic music draws inspiration from the late beatsmith J Dilla to create startling electronic collages with a strong kinship with hip-hop. The most visible exponent of this new wave of Californian musical creativity is Flying Lotus (who happens to be the late Alice Coltrane’s nephew), and Tonalism will bring this movement’s next wave to Toronto. Among the most notable are Teebs, whose debut last year album was widely acclaimed, matthewdavid, currently supporting his new release Outmind, and DNTEL, who has released several projects through the Sub Pop label and is one half of indie stars The Postal Service. Dublab main man Frosty, Julia Holter, Suzanne Kraft and visualist Alexandra Pelly will also contribute their inspiration.

Count on additional energy from local musicians, businesses, broadcasters and a few more surprises to make this one of the most ambitious events the Music Gallery has ever undertaken.

Look for daily updates leading to next week.

Say wrd.


Hudson Mohawke: Thunder Bay


I love this f*cking track. And i'm so glad it's finally coming out. Let's stop for a hot second.
Hudson Mohawke has been coming into his own beautifully. Much like a young draft pick who's studied his playbook and took control of a game with his known abilities, he's been able to find his musical lane and go pedal to the metal.
Take the early Heralds Of Change, to Butter and now this, you can hear the progression from a young man chopping up samples in classic beat science, to the current status as maestro, conductor. His tracks have become brighter, even more rhythmic than before, sounding like dramatic scores.
World famous Just Blaze went on a recent and epic twitter rant in disbelief @ Hudmo's melodious material. Glad to see more ppl come aboard. Indeed.
Got to rap quickly w/ Hudmo this weekend in Detroit, and we covered above topic. More on that coming hella soon.
In any case, this track was soundclouded 2 days back, and @ last count today: 9943 plays.
Thunder Bay is the track, and Satin Panthers is the EP which is due in August. You can download it with pre-orders. Hit Warp for deets.

And again, for those who follow and listen attentively to his set def recognize this track. What started as a show only chune, has now made the cut as a EP lead. Fantastic.

We're looking fwd.

Say wrd.

Gaslamp Killer's Dublab Takeover

I was able to catch a good part of the Gaslamp Killer take over during the famous Dublab proton drive. He brought over Computer Jay, Jon Wayniac among other guests. As usual, niceness over the airwaves, and all for an amazing cause: Dublab's Tuning Into Tomorrow campaign.

Ta-ku Presents SCRAPS [DWNLD]

In keeping this mini feverish pitch of rolling out some riddims, our good friend Ta-Ku né Regan Matthews has been on a certified branding campaign, setting up what is to be an official release later this year on Project Mooncircle, Faces.
If you've listen to any Ta-Ku's sound, you know that his selections are splitting at the seams with smooth soul, sonorant samples, sharp snares and electronic.

Scraps is essentially an collection of finished works scattered in different areas of his hard drive, but assembled into a beat tape - for pure enjoyment.

Available as a free download, i strongly suggest you grab your own copy and bang it out, mayne. Shouts to Ta-Ku. I see those emails man! Say wrd.
