In an email from AYK just about 1 week ago, I was introduced to Naive Machine (I always feel like saying Native Instruments - see the connect?). I love being introduced to new riddims.
Thought I was little light on deets, looks like this now London tax payer was a hip hop producer now turned to more electronic authoring. All good.
Dropping in August is Naive Machine's Robot Ramification on Hit And Hope Records.
Joystick anyone?? Looking @ the cover alone will conjure visions of a stool, a row of quarters and tons of 8bit. What does show in bits are his roots from is hip hop days and it's classic 90 some bpm cadence, but like more and more of his ilk, he's experimenting with different tempos and rhythms. Say wrd.
However, as Naive Machine mentioned himself, his goal was a much more electronic sound - we'll say future bass - and he does just that using his foundation in kicks and snare coupled with his extensive synth outfits.
For the ones lucky enough to scoop the wax, you'll be rewarded (and I do mean that), with an Om Unit rmx. POW.
A1. Tiltin Ova
A2. Robot Ramification
B1. Electric Eccentric
B2. Call of the Wild
B3. Afrika (Om Unit Remix) (12" exclusive)
Naive Machine's Robot Ramification will be available on wax August 15th 2011, with the digital following in September.
And as a treat, here's a mix of his i found floating around online. Hit the likkle arrow for a likkle download. ;)
