November is more oriented for the Glitchy side of things.
Lots of female vocals to help get the mood started.
Let the glitchy bass take you and bring you back down. Afro Monk’s – November Mixtape
This is a mixtape I put together for easy listening dubstep tracks.
More intended for people new to the dubstep and has tons of more girlie tracks. Toned down the bass more than usual. Afro Monk’s Music for You – From Me
This is my first attempt to mix Glitch.
Eventually this is all I want to mix but need tons of practice.
I know I can do much better but wanted to record something. Afro Monk’s October Glitch Mix
Here is probably the 4th mix I ever recorded…
Not happy with it but really dig these tracks.
Probably have some more mixes up in near future. Afro Monk – August Mix
Here is a Drum N Bass Mix I did with some of my favorite classics.
This was the 2nd mix I ever did on the NS7.
Mixing needs work but for now it’s worth posting… Afro Monk – June’s DnB Mix

Heyoka is keeping Muti Music busy just spittin’ out one release after the other. Where the last album “Marklar” went a bit much in the Dubstep direction for my taste this album comes out more diverse! Heyoka is mixing Breakbeats, Dubstep, Drum n Bass into a nice mix.
Timonkey’s “Future Perfect” is sadly way to much “ordinary” Dubstep for me to really enjoy it even if it’s mixed up with some Chill out tunes, thirteen track is a bit to much for me. But if you’re into Dubstep this might be the album for you!
May 24th, 2010 we were live on Glitch.fm for our weekly Slippery Slopes radioshow. It’s been awhile since I post one of our mixes. This show features Munkz vs Claro for the first hour. The second hour consist of special guest Gooddroid for 35mins and myself, Afro Monk, for the last 25min. I didn’t expect to play but ended up jumping on the APC40 last minute, was feeling real gooood.
You can check out our show every Monday from 11pm-1am EST on Glitch.fm

Kraddy, absolutely slayed Lightning in a Bottle 2010! It was the first time I got the experience to catch him live. Ever since he left The Glitch Mob there has been question of what was going to happen. Lightning in a Bottle it became clear… Kraddy is THE MOB! The Glitch Mob clearly has gone one direction and Kraddy has only taken his live energy to another level. At the end of his set he told all the ladies to come up on stage and it went NUTS! Android Porn dropped hard! It has been one of the biggest anthems for Glitch Hop and has been remixed by some of the greatest in the scene right now. They even cut his audio out for a second because of the chaos he created with all the people on the stage…. Be warned this man parties!
I’ve just received word that Kraddy has an upcoming mash up series of track to be released in upcoming weeks. Also a new album coming out with none other than the great Alpha Pup label releasing it. He recently posted a new track on his soundcloud to give us a tease of the future mash up project. I’ve been given permission to release his track to download so scoop it up!
Right now there might be a chance that I’ll get to play along side one of my great inspirations, Kraddy, in NYC. Nothing is official but it’s been mentioned. Be sure to keep your eye out on Kraddy. He stands alone and not just, the guy who use to be in The Glitch Mob. Right now I have more faith in him than the mob. Mashup album & new album released by Alpha Pup.
It’s summer season and if you missed out on checking out his West Coast Manifesto Summer 2009 Mix I uploaded it just for you as well so you can jam out in the sun!
I’ve been in a odd place since I’ve returned from my California trip to Lightning in a Bottle 2010. I’m back stronger and a better person but at the same time I’ve been having withdrawals, music withdrawals. How could I take myself back to those amazing memories?! Music! One of my favorite performances of Lightning in a Bottle was MartyParty. The amount of energy he brings to his sets is second to none! I’ve had the opportunity to play out and after seeing MartyParty live I knew that this man is one of my role models. I ended up going online and searching all over for more of this mans mixes. I found many but the true diamond of the mixes I found was his Coachella 2008 mix. It’s hard to believe that most of the tracks that he dropped were done so early on. It wasn’t till late last year that The Sauce came out which quite a handful of the tracks off it are featured in this mix. Rock on MartyParty and hope to catch you again soon!
White Noise’s actual name is Emanuel Bender and he is 21 years old and is located in Berlin. He has played violin since he was 6, guitar since he was 13, and always poking around on the piano a little. He had drum lessons and went to a school that focuses on music. He played in lots of orchestras such as the Berlin Youth Orchestra (LandesJugendorchester Berlin) and heaps of bands and combos with violin, guitar, keys and voice.
Now to the important stuff! His first encounters with electronic music came with his first PC when he was 14 or something. Ever since then he constantly tried to produce songs and just got better and better over the years, he says his first attempts were more of a joke due to the lack of programs and knowledge how to use them. In 2008 or so he discovered club scenes and with that his favorite genre these days: dubstep. He listened to lots and lots of music and tried to make his own tracks and styles. Now armed with improved hardware such as some proper speakers and logic and a macbook. He has become some kind of perfectionist, He puts hours and days of work into his tracks to get them exactly as he wants and on a more professional level each time.
For 6 months now he has visited a film music composing class (film music: which is my second favorite genre and my career aspiration unless I’m starting to get heaps of money for my music sometime ) and also learned lots about processing and producing tracks and audio. He’s proud to say he got accepted by the ArtEZ music school in the Netherlands (which is a not too bad school as he heard.
For the future: he is firstly going to study but will also produce lots more banging tracks. and looking forward to actually getting a label and some reward for the stuff he has been doing also looking forward to being a more represented artist in the scene which is starting to work out quite well he guesses.
This weeks Fire Friday Mix goes to none other than The Gaslamp Killer and Lorn. It’s that time of the month that I love! Low End Theory Podcast are something that I look forward to listening too. It’s always a refreshing feeling to hear sets from some of the greatest on the West Coast. I wish I could of gone to Low End Theory last week while I was in LA but had to leave to get back to work. People on the West Coast have no idea how spoiled they are to have such talented DJs as residents. The Low End Theory tracklist is something worth killing for but at the sametime I completely understand why they do not release it. Nothing like the feeling of hearing a fresh track on the podcast and doing everything possible to hunt it down.

The hip hop and beat boxing of Nicoluminous has taken form in
synthesizers and drum machines for his second official release, Bass

pristine west coast flavor, shined up like some hundred spoke 13″ gold
wire rims on an amphibious moon buggy. Nico’s got the juice, the

bass bizzle. It’s for rizzle…all inspired by the low end, just in

Nico Luminous is located in Oregon and be on the look out because this dude is a total sleeper. It may seem at first that he is just another beat boxer but then you realize the mans skill as he creates loops on the fly and incorporate all mixed sounds in a full live performance. These are some tracks put down by him. Check out this video where he has taken the time to show you how a live performance can really go deep with using Ableton Live. It’ll makes you wonder what really all is possible when you see someone out there.
The Plastician is back with his yearly May mix. This man never lets down. Talk about a DJ for the people! These mixes are always top notch and has become my favorite series from any DJ. I’ll be honest I’ve sort of put dubstep on hold for awhile now but this is a breathe of fresh air. Don’t get me wrong there are some tracks on here that I wish I never heard again but honestly if anyone can play them and pull it off it’s Plastician. This is the 5th year he has put out an annual mix and he still ceases to dissappoint. Thank you Plastician for making all these years of listening to dubstep something to remember with these mixes.
