DVA: Why You Do feat A.L. [VIDEO]



This is EASILY one of my fave records in this still pretty young 2012, and might carry through the year. In a Red Bull Music Academy lecture w/ Frankie Knuckles, he said that voice is by far the pretty instrument. Vocals over the kind of production that DVA delivers is the stuff I dream of, and am wholly thankful for. Here are some simple but effective visuals from DVA for Why You Do feat A.L.. Of course this was premiered by the all world ppl at XLR8R.
Pretty Ugly, DVA's 1st full length is out now - on HyperDub records. Come w/ the Muhsinah track already man.

Enjoy.

Vlek Presents: Beatsurfing App

The few of you who might know me personally, know I've been immersed in the iOS music development movement. What's come out of that environment for authoring has been nothing short of remarkable. So many interesting apps have allowed for nearly unlimited amounts of creativity. Ask Africa Hitech about it and then listen to Swair. Either way, would it be of any surprise that a label might throw one out there?? Of course not. (Shouts to Ghostly)
Enter Vlek, Herrmutt Lobby and Beatsurfing. It had been a min, since I had heard the name Herrmutt Lobby and the last I recall from him was Bassfudge Powerscones around top of 2009 - so yes i've been out of touch. I was totally unaware he was a code writer. Nice.
So Vlek and Herrmutt Lobby have teamed up to present Beatsurfing.
If apps like Draw Something Free, TouchOSC and Photoshop were to have a kid, it might look something like Beatsurfing. The apparent difference is that Beatsurfing will be less button pushing and more finger dragging, which in part reminds of yet to be authorized Waviary w/o the beat element. Either way, this is something promising for the iOS fans.





This app is still in it's beta phase, but if you're interested in beta testing, you can sign up here. I might actually do it.

They're looking at

Mike Gao: Ausgangsta (Ta-ku Remix)

After a playful upload was posted a few days back, the remix that had been discussed between the two participants has now emerged. The tireless producer Ta-Ku has remixed a Mike Gao authored riddim Ausgangsta that came from his Project Mooncircle release. The slow flow track was leaked for the masses enjoy.



Cheers.

Hawthorne Headhunters: Teleport



It's at least a few years since I saw either Coultrain and or BlackSpade. Both massive talents on their own, but now are both featured on the new Hawthorne Headhunters project. A project that 1st emerged some years back via a collaborative effort between producer/MC Proh Mic (at the time an LA resident) and I, Ced and HVW8 to bring it all together, with songs like She Wanna feat JimiJames (if I do recall), and then even this Dam Funk collab entitled PCH which then featured Ty G on bass if my memory fails me not. Nonetheless, the recordings continued along with some slightly under the radar releases.
Fast forward a few years now, and you have a new situation, a label and now an LP release set, we're treated to a lead off single Teleport, from the Myriad Of Now LP due April 10th 2012 from Plug Research.

Shouts to a few good homies I've not seen a hot min.

Enjoy.

Koen: Outputs v3



Today is the day that Koen's Outputs v3 gets it's due release. With this new Outputs v3, we see the emergence of a Koen who's taken on the challenge of leaving the traditional hip hop cadence and tempo range, for something newer and potentially fresher. The now de rigueur 125-160 rhythms have infectiously taken the lion's share of the attention, and Koen has entered the eco soundsystem with his renditions. I've spoken on this at more length before so I'll let you enjoy this one just as I have.



The Outputs v3 is out now on Soulection, and all for the criminally low price of $2.99. Get it here.

Enjoy.

RBMA: Why You Should Apply



7 more days. 7 days are what are separating 60 participants from a 2 week stay in NYC in 2012. As many of you know, the Red Bull Music Academy in settling in NY, NY this fall and will descend onto the media metropolis with the near folkloric fanfare that has been well documented. So, as we round the last corner, take the last turn before the April 2nd deadline, after the countless Red Bull Music Academy sessions across the world, we count down the last 7 days with 7 reasons why you should apply to the Red Bull Music Academy. LET’S GO.

The Music

“It’s the music stupid!”. Paraphrasing Bill Clinton, The Red Bull Music Academy is all about the music. Just think of the days you had a stroke of genius, but found yourself heading to work w/ 1/2 a bagel in your mouth, running for the subway. #Fail. Or the day you figured out this prodigious chord progression, then realized the voice in your head was a customer complaint at your desk job... Le sigh. At the Red Bull Music Academy, you’ll have time to work on nothing BUT music. You have a sudden stroke of ingenuity? You’ll likely be near or IN the studio and will be able to hit your instrument of choice. Stuck on a musical passage?? Maybe one of the numerous engineers in charge of helping you along will help you bridge the gap - be it Mark Pritchard, Marco Passarani, Todd Osbourne, Robin Hannibal, or maybe even past grad Hudson Mohawke.
Let alone the human capital, you’ll have the opportunity to work with some of the best, latest and most sought after pieces of gear, and record in of the many studios which will be made available to you nearly 24/7 - unless someone else is in it. All of it will culminate in the Various Assets double disc which will come out some months after, in a pseudo musical dissertation.
Bottom line, music will be the myopic focus of the 2 weeks at The Red Bull Music Academy.

The Lectures

This is obviously my own op ed, but I personally think the music and lectures at the Red Bull Music Academy could actually be a 1 and 1 prime. That’s how important I consider the lectures to be. We’re all music fans, and if you’re not moved by being in a small room with 29 others, listening to Arthur Baker talk about how Planet Rock came about, or Bob Moog’s stirring statement about the role of music in a community, Jazzie B’s chat about how an intern at Def Jam called Bobby Konders may have been the key to breaking the band in Amaerica, or being in a room with the REAL MF DOOM, shiny mask with corrected lenses and all... The lectures are such a signature of the Red Bull Music Academy, I could sit all day and watch them like Jeffersons reruns.
But in all seriousness, the Red Bull Music Academy picks and chooses the lecturers so that you may hear about their come up in music, their travels, and maybe learn from their life experiences.
The twice daily lectures and lecturers will be there to inspire you every step of the way, whether with their description of life accounts or of past tuneful deeds. You’re quite often privy to particulars that no Pitchfork, Fader or Fact mag interview could ever deliver, with the opportunity to interact in a public or even private conversation afterwards, to get even more details... #priceless. Let’s not forget the world class moderators: Egon, Chairman Mao, Emma and Benji B...

Networking

You’re going to be surrounded by all sorts of ppl at the Red Bull Music Academy. You’ve sat through some lectures, you’re going to some events, meeting some press, and festival curators, and of course the multitude of middle men, all of which seemingly make this eco sound system work. But they all play important roles: getting you the exposure you’ve sought out, because you’re work IS the truth.
Ask Flying Lotus who met Kode9 innocently in 2006 at the Melbourne edition and they’ve remained close ever since, and even arranged a release on the Hyperdub 5 year anniversary compilation.
Ultimately, you’ll have the opportunity to spend 2 weeks with some esteemed music ppl from across the globe and they’ll be able to help you in some way shape or form in your endeavors in this landscape - whether touring, recording, press and everything in between.

Performances

The shows that will be taking place at the academy will be the highlights of the retreat: From having a Global Communications reunions, to having RZA performing in a movie theater, or rawking in a secret location and a live broadcast w/ Boiler Room.
Of course, whilst at the academy, you’ll have an opportunity to perform in front of crowds from 100 ppl to 3000. Many will gather to come to shows you’ll be billed on, opening for some of the very ppl you’ve looked up to in your careers. Ask someone like Exeter (Red Bull Music Academy Madrid 2011) who went from working at a brewery one week, to opening for Aphex Twins the week after. Ya. Aphex Twins. It may actually have been his 1st show ever in fact...

Friendships

You’re going to forge some great working relationships from your time working, but you’ll also create some lasting friendships from your 2 weeks at the Red Bull Music Academy. Yes, you’ll record with the ppl around you, creating magnificent music, but you’ll also have magical memories all shared with the participants you spent 2 intimate weeks with. When the Red Bull Music Academy is all done, all 30 of you will go your separate ways, but it won’t end there. You’ll now have 29 couches to surf on around the world - how dope is that?? lol.

Post Grad Life

You’ve had 2 awesome weeks at the academy, played your heart out, produced, picked up some amazing tips for mixing and mastering, sat through some inspiring lectures and made some fantastic friendships. But what now??
Well, maybe you’ll have more opportunities for shows as someone saw you perform. Maybe you’ve been targeted by a label about releasing some music after they heard your Various Assets tracks. Maybe the Red Bull Music Academy liked your performance so much, they’ll fit you in on one of their several stages they curate around the world - and they’re numerous. You can join the local teams like Lunice, Ango and Exeter all did, performing and talking about the Red Bull Music Academy across Canada. Maybe a participant you worked with at the Red Bull Music Academy got signed and was so enamored with your work, is calling you to commission an official remix or collaboration. Imagine that. Ask Hudson Mohawke, Anenon (JG, where's my ticket?), Fatima, Jamie Woon... the list goes on.
There will be some great opportunities to further your career with a future so bright, you might have to wear shades. ;)

The Food

For the fortunate who’ve been able to sit through 2 weeks or Red Bull Music Academy life, the food will be prepared by chefs and will be some of the finest foods the host city will have to offer - every day. From day break to late nights, there will be not a worry about being fed at the Academy. In fact, so of us used to joke about it being the Red Bull Culinary Academy as there was so much of it, and it was soooo good. ;)




If that’s not enough... UGH. But if it sounds good, you know the drill.

APPLY. You have until April 2 2012. Good luck.

;)

Koen: 993

The last leak from the forthcoming Soulection Release from Dutch Koen. 993 is a 808 kick heavy ditty, to which some smooth chords and vocal shops were added. Something certainly more laid back from Koen, conjuring images of shiny Impalas, hot days, cold Heniekens, clear sunny skies and thick clouds of smoke.
His LP Outputs will be out digitally March 27th 2012. Show love.

Dibiase: Swingology 101 [DL]



I still recall 2008, P.U.D.G.E. asked me if I knew Dibia$e and I hadn't yet met him. Boy. A few yrs later and I can easily and clearly assert that Dibi is certainly one of the most important in the game. So when Dibia$e lets loose some tracks, ppl listen. Pun intended.
So in a act of kindness, Dibia$e releases Swingology 101, an LP he dropped in Dec 2011.

Jonwayne: This Is False [DL]



Not often do you find cats that have a very credible reputation as both an MC and producer. Jonwayne certainly made his early mark as a gifted MC but suddenly left that fanfare for the comfort of the 404, performing his bangers from the breakout Bowser among the many.
So Jonwayne leaks a 20 cut rap record, flexing his savoir faire for scripts, proficiency for penmanship. Something that a few of us had been able to relish in a previous incarnation. This Is False LP is a 20 cut affirmation of his comfort and wit on the mic. A fun one at that. Added was the production credits ranging from a variety of producers we know well: Samiyam, Flying Lotus, Dibiase, Mndsgn, Lapti, Kutmah, Mono/Poly and many more. Download This Is False LP asap, it's a great one.

Elephant & Castle: En Memoria feat tUnE-YarDs [VIDEO]



Transitions in an LP that that been listening to quite regularly from Elephant & Castle's on Plug Research. The young producer's music has been a personal pick of mine for the last little, as it's had that mix of atmospheric, cadence variations, tempo, transitions (pardon the pun).
His Transitions LP drops next week March 27 2012 on Plug Research. More deets coming.

Plug Research Presents: SP-2012 [DL]



The good ppl at Plug Research are setting it all up. With a fantastic roster that's been slowly and carefully growing quietly in the last several months, the arrival of spring signals the label's bloom, with a bouquet of beats billowing from the SoCal label. For the last several months, i've been listening to a macédoine of advance music from Plug Reserach wondering when some of it would see light of these sunny days. Consider this free compilation the start. Sonnymoon, Tensei, Lee Bannon, Elephant & Castle, Anthony Valadez and many more...
You can stream this SP-2012 compilation here and also download it for your listening pleasure.

Young Montana: Cassetteplay // Reprise



Been a hot min since I heard much from Alpha Pup's Young Montana?. But a few days back I had to keep my Safari window open on this gritty lo-fi banger from the UK producer which caught my ear. Cassetteplay // Reprise is a freebie he leaked that got 4k plays in 3 days and a pile of comments. Yup.

With guests ranging from the emerging to the accomplished, look for discussions to swing from playful to professional, but ultimately set to engage all in attendance, delivering more insight into their lives and careers.

Reason Maker To Deliver a $1 iPhone App

A few of you might know that I have this personal appreciation and semi secret crush on iOS. A few of us have marvelled at the sheer volume of the music writing apps that are available. Brilliant. The ops to create and author are near boundless now.
So Swedish Propellerhead, makers of revered Reason software have delivered to Apple their entry into this fairly competitive landscape. We are now waiting for the approval for Figure, Propellerhead's answer to making beats on the bus. See below.



This should be live in the app store any day now, so all you iPhone users, stay tuned as this might be another 99¢ very well spent.

DVA: Eye Know Feat Natalie Maddix



I've not sat down to talk about this DVA LP, and how much I love it, but Pretty Ugly came out this week and it's an LP I highly recommend. Vocals over daring riddims, much of what is missing and def not heard enough. Anyhow, Eye Know Feat Natalie Maddix was the latest video to emerge from this great record.
The LP is available today on HyperDub, and what better timing for the 1st week for spring. Say wrd.

Kutmah: Kutmah Presents WorldWide Family v2



With a selection alone is worth it's weight of gold, Kutmah, in his short time in the UK has proven himself to be a top tier tastemaker in LDN, taking his reputation as a visionary curator from LA all the way to the shores of the UK. His relationship with many of the artists on this comp predates what is currently known as this beat scene or bass music. So it seemed so natural to have exclusive material from the likes of Darkhorsemen on there, but also have Flying Lotus released that sound like rare material from his early years. Kutmah was even able to include a selection from the folkloric Hudson Heeters v1 from 06 courtesy of Hudson Mohawke. Wow. But he certainly had made many friends in the UK, a place he now calls home, and that is evident in this tracklist. The selection flows like to be expected from Kutmah - unexpected. From rap to intrumentals of all varying cadence and flow. Some faves: Tadd Mullinix, fLako... In any case Kutmah Presents WorldWide Family v2 hits stores March 26th 2012 on Brownswood.

Koen: 986



This is what I love to see and hear. Progress. In a convo that I had w/ Kenny Dope early this year, we talked about the fact that as much as he was well known and regarded for house, he still had history and love for hip hop - something that not too many cats ever talked about. Only OGs. In fact, rare are the ones who have actually been praised for both (Spinna comes to mind).
So when I heard this little up tempo banger from Koen, I just pushed out a sigh of both relief and rapture. Coming from a marked past of predominantly hip hop production, the Dutch Koen has leaked a quasi house/808 2 steppy riddim 986 that I'm playing for the nth time as we speak. I'm really looking fwd to this Outputs release. Like I mentioned in past, I got hip to Koen somewhere in 08 and have been a fan since. This only anchors my interest in his work as you should book mark this as well.
Outputs will be out March 27th courtesy of Soulection.

FL Studio: Performance Mode

What's this?? FL Studio aka Fruity Loops is testing the addition of a performance mode which will parallel the one that has been the darling of Ableton users for some years now, which in fact got me interested in the s/w suite. FL Studio have long endured some belittling though it's always been suite that many have used, though seemingly have always left eventually. This new dev is very interesting, though some questions still need answering. But there's some promise. Thanks to CDM.

Suff Daddy: Twisted ft Vertual Vertigo

Suff Daddy has a full length in the works for Melting Pot, and has just leaked the lead single featuring Vertual Vertigo (Ezekiel 38 & Cerebral Vortex) on the mic. Something of a rarity from Suff Daddy as the majority of his records have been of the instrumental ilk, but this is welcomed nonetheless.
A straight 4/4 old drum break with a guitar loop never sounded or looked better in an elevator. You can grab this lead single from the forthcoming Suff Sells LP, courtesy of Suff Daddy and Melting Pot.
The video is here as well for added visuals, and is there anything more gangster that Cerebral Vortex's beard?? ;)




This lead single will be available as a 7" April 6th 2012, with the LP coming in May. Order info can be scooped here.

Enjoy.

Souleance: La Gourmandise 7"



Ahead of their full LP La Belle Vie, Souleance (Fulgeance + DJ Soulist) will be releasing a very limited 7" single called La Gourmandise, for those hungry for an appetizer.

Addison Groove: Dance of the Women feat. Mark Pritchard



Coming from the 50 Weapons label is the Addison Groove LP Transistor Rhythm, with a lead off which was just leaked yesterday. The man who will forever be tagged to the incredible Footcrab riddim, will once more deliver frenetic tempos in a footwork cadence - supplied staunchly by the 808, and it's torrid transistors (does the artwork not look familiar?). Most interesting about this leaked single was that, not only does it feature one my faves on a collaborative effort - Mark Pritchard, but it was also done at the Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid in 2011. Nice.



Transistor Rhythm will be out March 30th on 50 Weapons. You can get more info here.

Georgia Anne Muldrow: March 25, Wrongbar Toronto

A few weeks ago, I got to sit down and listen to most of the new Georgia Anne Muldrow LP in a Toronto office. [THANK THE LOARD]. A full Madlib produced record w/ vocals [THERE IS A GAWD]. I always found myself listening to The Healer or the Special joint w/ MED. But to hear that the SEEDS LP will be entirely done by Madlib?? Nothing could be better, breathing some life in music and female vocals. YES.

Tokimonsta ft Rucyl: Fame Boozers Lullaby



I got a little too excited. Saw this yesterday, bookmarked it, came back only to see a grey'ed out arrow. NOOOOOOOOO.
After sending a distress signal to Rucyl directly, she was like... CALM DOWN - THERE"S A LINK IN THE PAGE. I looked again and just blushed. Then sent her a eTwitter hug and kiss. I gotta drink less soy milk. Making me way too emo. LOL.
So as the headline describes, we have a smooth, beat driven berceuse from Brainfeeder's 1st lady Tokimonsta, with cheribic chants courtesy of SNS's Rucyl. Say wrd.
This was thrown up as a freebie yesterday, so go nuts.

KenLo Craqnuques: Forêt_Boréale_Mixte

Coming from the Alaclair Ensemble is the grossly unheralded KenLo Craqnuques. A chap 1st came across Beat Dimensions 2, he's been keeping busy diligently releasing his comps, producing for his crew and even some side projects like Sarah Linhares' LP.
So it's with inviting arms, and a timid cervical spine that we celebrate the return of KenLo Craqnuques and a new record.
Forêt_Boréale_Mixte picks up where it all left off: explosive boom bap. That's it. Just a warming, play responsibly. Neck exercises might be recommended.

Kan Sano: Bha EP



From the hands on the prolific Kan Sano comes a new EP. After Fantastic Farewell, numerous appearances on comps, and his fresh Cicindela Japonica EP (free download) comes a new release from the dextrous instrumentalist Kan Sano. The Bha EP will be released by Spirit Notes, April 04 2012. And if this lead single is of any indication, this could not be dropping at a better time. Think luxuriant landscapes, cockeyed cadence, synthsational sounds, all set to a relaxed rhythm. Almost no better way of bringing in the spring season.
Bah drops April 04 2012.

Koen: Outputs 3 for Soulection

Coming from the hands of Koen and So Cal's Soulection, we have a release to look fwd to.
Koen, as I mentioned, is a cat that I've had on my radar for quite some time. In fact, I've gone to listen to an old radio show from 2009 @ CKLN 88.1 FM where I was a guest host, and played some classic Koen. Man... RIP CKLN (man, this mix is a hard listen. earphones crapped out).

Krystal Klear: XLR8R Podcast [DL]



Red Bull Music Academy's Madrid 2011 grad, and Prince Of Boogie Krystal Klear is in the building. I still recall the intrigue and the curiosity I had when 2-3 yrs back, Hudmo was on Benji's show and was asked who he was listening to currently, and passed the name of the afore mentioned. So as with many others back then, I locked in. Nice.
Either way, he's been on the ascent non stop ever since. Releases, travels, and of course, the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy admission in 2011.

Jon Wayne: Oodles & Doodles [VIDEO]



What is old is new again. 1stly, congrats to Jon Wayne for signing to Stones Throw. In a convo we had sometime in mid 2010, he mentioned he was about to get down w/ ST but asked to keep it low. So I did. Glad to see it all come together.
As such, Stones Throw is releasing 2 records as 1. Some will recall the original Doodles which he released on his own, selling it at shows. Other will recall his massive breakout Bowser from Alpha Pup which was championed by the likes of Gaslamp Killer, and had some great riddims. Well, the 2 are being released as a double album and it's available now.
More importantly, what's old is new again. When releasing Doodles, we spoke and I mentioned the old rap series entitled FROM THE VAULTS (2008-2009?) where he flexed his emcee skills, quite adeptly in fact and I wondered if that was ever going to resurface. He had lost the masters last he mentioned. They're likely floating around the net and I couldn't pull them up myself as my ext HD is in Toronto, as I write this from a west coast hotel. Either way, glad to see Jon Wayne officially back on the mic. In the interim, as you wait for that new new, scoop the OODLES OF DOODLES by Jon Wayne, Stones Throw newest signee.

Slugabed: Missin U [DL]


Coming form the visionary minds of the good ppl at King Deluxe, we're treated to another brilliant conceptual leak featuring the musical mastermind of Ninja Tune's Slugabed and the visual virtuosities of Theo Prins.
Think breakup. Think adieu. Think farewell. Now imagine it all in a futuristic setting in an outlying solar system, having one last embrace. A moment of mournful malaise, but jouissance as well. Such are the emotions on Missin U. Add a illustration to complete the project, as they've been on this on going project.

Anenon: This Is What I Meant [DL]

I just finished talking about Anenon yesterday. At the start 2010, came across this Non Project label and was immediately caught in their gravitational pull of ambient and delicate soundscapes coming for the So Cal label. The Music program and Red Bull Music Academy 2011 grad Anenon, not only runs the label but finds himself as a recent focus of attention. With an EP dropping this this month, he's also announced the arrival of a full length Inner Hue. Finally.

Inner Hue was conceptualized shortly before in Madrid at the Red Bull Music Academy in 2011, and could not be more proud of the project (pun intended). A leak of the LP has emerged and can be heard and downloaded at Dummy Mag. You'll love it.

Boiler Room Los Angeles 001: J-Rocc [DL]



For those that caught the live feed of Boiler Room's 1st ever broadcast from LA, it was quite interesting. Teachable moment?? Get a spot w/ no neighbours. The event was interrupted a few times by LAPD's finest as the noise had been traveling a little too far for some ppl's liking. But seemed like the who's who of LA was out and about that night for sure. One of the esteemed curators that night was J-Rocc of the world famous Beat Junkies/Stones Throw and he was in full effect that night. Either, here's a rare (and I do mean rare) mix available for public consumption by the one and only, courtesy of Boiler Room. Make sure to subscribe to the podcast. Enjoy.

Project Mooncircle 10th Anniversary: Sweatson Klank [DL]

As the Project Mooncircle campaign continues, a few more track are making their way out to tease the masses. This time, Sweatson Klank (fka as TAKE), has indeed made his track avail for public consumption. As usual, rising above the fray of middle road beat science, "beat makers" (a term I absolutely loathe btw), Sweatson Klank delivers something more for the thinking man's beat science connoisseur, riding that 128 bpm lane, maneuvering smoothly through the 4 some min track. As he personally prepares for what will be a big year for him (massive plans), he's offered a little teaser for things to come from him for the Project Mooncircle 10th Anniversary boxset, set to hit shelves later this month.

ARP 101: Mystery Man [DL]

What might be the most apt titled track has emerged. ARP 101, known to some and very much unknown to many more was spotted streaking through the night sky last night. In a rare sighting, ARP 101 has emerged with not only a classic retro interstellar banger, but in celebration of the Eglo Records 3 yr Anniversary, it's been made available for free. The track that will make you want to pull out a doo rag, pop and lock w/ a Troop suit will assuage any immediate need to ask the more obvious question: WHERE'S THE ALBUM BRO?? We need that in our life right now. Say wrd. In any case, enjoy this one courtesy of Eglo and the Myserty Man himself, ARP 101.
