I came across this beautiful gem of a song today from The Walton Hoax, a collab from producer infraBuse and singer/songwriter Peter Vanek out of Antwerp, Belgium. If you’re a fan of the chiller side of dubstep, 2-step, UK Garage and artists like Burial and Asa, then you’ll def dig this track. I’ve been listening to this type of music a lot lately to help me relax and focus when i get stressed or to just wind down at the end of the night. This is a beautifully constructed track with great vocals. I’m definitely looking forward to more music from these talented artists. Much thanks to The Walton Hoax for offering up this amazing track as an exclusive download for our readers!
The Walton Hoax is an electronic music project from Antwerp, Belgium. A dark mix of 2-step, Dubstep and UK Garage is molded into a type of bass-heavy sound that is aimed at live sets as well as casual listening. It is inspired by futuristic dance producers like Mount Kimbie, Skream, Jamie Woon, James Blake and of course Burial. The project started in 2010 as a remix collab between the two founding artists. Singer/songwriter Peter Vanek had written some songs for this purpose, and asked producer infraBuse to give them a makeover. After finishing the first couple of tracks, they were so pleased with their sound, that they made it into a separate project: “The Walton Hoax.” Inspired by a 90′s science fiction film, the band name is based upon the supposedly true story of a UFO abduction. A few months after the project’s birth, The Walton Hoax put out a first song: Chemical Burn, constructed out of melancholy vocals intertwining with brooding, live-wire electronics that take the listener for a sizzling ride into the dark. It was supported with a video clip, which earned them no less than 15.000 views on youtube within the first month. This song is a prelude for the 3-track EP called “Chemical Burn” that’s coming out in June 2011. The ep will be up for download and pressed on a limited number of vinyl records, obtainable through www.TheWaltonHoax.be.

The northern melancholy is still present in their sound and the sample with the keyed fiddle just takes my viking soul to a higher place, the beat is produced by Arka and Erik L from Flyphonic Beats (also key members of Supersci)

This is one of the big remixes Joker has done in the recent months. Although it’s been rinsed out over and over it finally gets a free digital release. This is my personal favorite and hope it gets a vinyl release. Be sure to check it out and download!
