Mesak – School of Mesak

time April 22nd by Pierre authorTags: , , , , ,

mesak

Artist: Mesak
Album: School of Mesak
Label: Harmönia Records

Mesak has been putting out music since early 2000 but sadly enough I haven’t been much into the Finnish electronic music scene since a year or two when I got familiar with the genre Skweee which Mesak belongs to. Mesak is also one of the two persons behind the Skweee label Harmönia Records (the other one being “Randy Barracuda”) which has release stuff since 2006.

School of Mesak is from what I’ve understood Mesak’s first full length album and it contains 8 really good tracks. As his fellow Skweee colleges Mesak’s sound is a bit dirty, mid paced and funky. The album was release in January 2010 so it might be a bit old but I still think there’s a lot of people out there who haven’t heard it yet.

All and all a really good album that I encourage you all to take a listen to.
Listen to the teaser here below:

Limonious – House of Usher

time April 16th by Pierre authorTags: , , , , , , , , ,

Limonious – House of Usher
Label: Flogsta Danshall

Limonious is a Swedish Skweee artist also know as Pavan and Uday, he’s also a member of the projects Vakttornet and Wizards of DOS as well and the owner of the label Flogsta Danshall. A busy man indeed.

I don’t know how well known the genre Skweee is around the globe but the artist mainly hails from Scandinavia even though the music has started to pave its way through Europe. The genre is know for it’s less than perfect sound and by today’s standard is might come of as a bit “under produced”. It’s a bit “dirty”, rugged, the use of old analogue synths is very common. Another thing that is kind of typical for Skweee is the length of the tracks which usually ends up around 3 min which is kind of short when it comes to electronic music and Skweee tunes a kind of pop/rock feeling to them.

All of the things I described above can be said about the the 8 very good track featured on “House of House”(the track “Swizz Pommak” is my favorite).

Take a listen to the track below and keep you eyes on Flogsta Danshall in the future.

Mad Zach & R2 The Specialist – Wolf Spider

Artist: Mad Zach & R2 The Specialist
Title: Wolf Spiders
Cat # Muti058
UPC # 705105139807
File under: Glitch Hop / Dubstep / Crunk / Breakbeat

Tracklisting:
01 Soul Fire 3:09
02 Sinister 4:06
03 Subeater 3:46
04 Mashington 4:08
05 Speaker Gargle 4:05
06 Big D 3:38
07 MPC Dub 3:52
08 US Of Air 3:40
09 Interlude 1:20
10 8 Bit Chinoscillator 3:27
11 Christopher Columbus 3:42
12 Drowning 5:28

I’m feeling that I just repet myself when it comes to releases from Muti Music, stating that they are the awesome and so one… But that what I feel. Muti might be the label out there with the highest standard when it comes to releases, even though Dov seems to spit out release they are all still truly excellent.

The latest in line in a full length album from two persons that goes under the monickers Mad Zach & R2 The Specialist. These guy stands on a base of Dubstep but mixes it up quite a lot; you get influences ranging from Techno to Glitch (hop) and you get some funky vibes all executed with perfection. First listen to the track “Big D” here below and then you make sure you buy it!

Splatinum – Der Schplatzl 2010

Der Schplatzl 2010
Daly City Records

”Der Schplatl is the serum that binds the DNA of Lil Jon and Daft Punk into a swirling mutation of bass lines and radiant harmonic crescendos.” With a presentation that starts like that how can you go wrong?

Splatinum deleivers a great album with dance friendly bass music. The physical release includes 16 tracks including two remixes from Mochipet and one from Sleepy Eyes of Death.

I get a real good vibe from this album it’s both funky and bassy. As I quoted above a Daft Punk for the bass underground scene!

Slippery – Miami’s Glitch Night! Fridays at Club Cinema

slipperydownfrontslipperydownback



Miami Glitch presents the return of Slippery! We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from our WMC event, Slippery. We’ve teamed up with the crew who does DOWN at Club Cinema for a monthly event!

DOWN was a weekly event on Sundays at Cinema but officially switches to every Friday now. They will remain downstairs bringing you the best in Dubstep. Every last Friday of the month Slippery will be taking over the upstairs area for some banging Glitch Hop, IDM, and BASS!

April 30th 2010 marks the beginning of all these upcoming changes.

DOWN will be bringing in Richie August from Chicago. He has been doing some big things and has teamed up with Claw to form Hulk. It will be a special treat for Miami. The full line up downstairs includes: Richie August, Gooddroid, The Reazin, Grey Ghost, Ashworth, Chuck Nasty, Somejerk, & Bunnyfuzz.

Slippery will be treating Miami with a Dub Hop duo residing in Phoenix, Protohype. Protohype brings a sound that mixes typical dubstep with some glitchy crunk hop hop beats. They will not disappoint! Mr. Feathers will also be doing a special set for the night. He is excited to take up the challenge of doing Glitch Hop something he has never played before. The full line up includes: Protohype, Mr.Feathers, Afro Monk, Claro, The Munkz, El Topo, and C85.

Upstairs will also feature live art from Miami’s own Kazilla! She has been causing quite a stir with her lovely painting skills. Don’t miss out on this special event!

Hopefully this will mark a special time where Miami will have a new restructured weekly spot to check out all sorts of fresh new bass music. When Slippery isn’t upstairs doing the glitch-hop stuff Miami Glitch will also be running a unique lounge night. We hope to bring you a chill laid back groove while we play some hip hop, trip-hop, downtempo, and many artist from the infamous Ninjatune label. Our mission is to bring something new and different. Starting a lounge trip-hop night has always been a goal of mine and hope we can bring you a fresh new weekly hang out spot.

Here is a short 10min mini mix put together by Claro to show you all what type of sound you can expect to hear at the event!
