My Pet Monster – New Age Gangster [MalLabel Music]

time August 21st by Clear Shadow authorTags: , , , , ,

My Pet Monster releases his solo debut, New Age Gangster, on MalLabel Music earlier this summer and it’s a “cinematic dubstep” extravaganza of many moods and eras.  From Electro Swing to Hip Hop, this Ghetto Swing feel will have you swerving and feeling groovy, hop on the 1930′s millennium swing-hop. West Coast feels will  regress you 3 generations down while remaining in present day flavor and flow.  Ryan Summers resides in San Francisco, California and has been focused on the creation of this new sub-genre of electronic music.  Artwork by Sparkuhl on the album art is very original, and brings in visuals that are in sync to the title: New Age Gangster.  Adding to the album art cover, a pet monster is revealed next to six symmetrical women figures with a 30 – 40′s look.  A new age of reaffirming the impossible, a mixture of sounds never thought possible, has come into a reality state.  Classic sounds blended with present-day glitch and bass make it a journey of its own.  

New Age Gangster consists of 3 original productions including incorporation of soulful vocals, and 3 remixes of the originals:  New Age Gangster, When I Get Low I Get High, Baton Rouge Bounce, and remixes include: “New Age Gangster” by Samples, and “Baton Rouge Bounce” by Defunk and Timmy Tutone.   “New Age Gangster” kicks off with mid tempo snare, and a momentum of rhythm accumulates, while whistles blend in the mix.  Piano and brass instrumentation giving off a danceable beat.  Woodwinds can sporadically be heard and the production of glitch hop squelches and future bass make it a unique creation.  Combination of two opposing worlds mixing freshly.  When I Get Low I Get High, is full of an upbeat tempo and female vocalizations of old-school swing music, with fine creation of sound design of bubble wurbbles and twists of lasers.  Saxophone and snare give the swing a full effect, break down your best dance move, as the title suggests the style of swing dance.

Baton Rouge Bounce definitely has a southern touch to it.  The track initiates with a banjo crescendo that foreshadows a steady swing, and old-school breaks.  A very melodic swing vibe is present, with additions to well thought out glitch patterns.  New Age Gangster remixed by Samples reveals his signature glitch-hop style filled with hard hitting bass lines – a crunk effect that will leave you feeling like the sound of lightning bolts striking.  Very rhythmic composition blends well between the genre of My Pet Monster and his.  Baton Rouge Bounce remixed by Defunk has initial piano key notes and saxophone instrumentation by My Pet Monster which is then meshed with incorporation of deep male vocals.  Soon, Canadian producer, Defunk, crescendos an upbeat vibe full of glitch and funky and melodic bass beats for the rest of the track to follow.  Baton Rouge Bounce remixed by Timmy Tutone adds in 808 explorations and a smooth feel, a future sound that is pleasant to the ear pineal.

The development of American “Swing” music in the 1930′s is back with a twisted and glitch-ed out vibe.  My Pet Monster isn’t afraid to make his ideas an innovation, as this cinematic dubstep and glitch producer has shown in his first solo release.  Tagging along to his creation, three well-respected bass and glitch producers joined in on the mix exposing endless support for his style with their own unique taste.  I’m excited to see My Pet Monster continue to grow as an artist, especially after a release with a well-known established label.  MalLabel continues to hit high charts as they will continue to expose artists and producers such as My Pet Monster.  If you’re in the West Coast, be sure to catch artists branching out of this label the best way possible: LIVE.

HANNAH – Brym EP [Artist Spotlight]

time August 16th by Clear Shadow authorTags: , , , , , , , ,

HANNAH released BRYM on June 03, 2014, an orchestral downtempo atmospheric soundscape felt with immeasurable depth, emotion, and talent.  Hannah Thiem is the mastermind behind this production as she weaves her ambient production tempos and Nordic melodic roots with her dexterous and rhythmic violin playing skills that will create a clear and powerful cleansing energy within.  BRYM marks her first solo album, and she withholds a diverse and expansive collections of previous works and collaborations.  From having played countless festivals such as Lightning in a Bottle, Burning Man, and Shambhala Music Festival and having past collaborations with Beats Antique, Random Rab, Irma Thomas, and The Human Experience, she will continue to immerse herself in the music world by making profound connections. The ambience and elegance of her stylings also creates heavenly echoes of lyrical bliss felt through her core, her soul.  I met Hannah exactly 5 months ago [March 16th] here in Austin, TX during a secret SXSW show featuring other artists such as Govinda at Black Swan Yoga, and felt profound elation for my new discovery of her uplifting and mesmerizing music – a dynamic performer with passion and intention.  BRYM EP graphic was also designed by Hannah, making her a multi-talented artist.  Each track contains within it a heart-felt story, landscapes of hidden emotion and knowledge are revealed through each string note, within each beat, within each vocal chord – a divine spiritual truth.

BRYM consists of 5 golden tracks: “Skaldic Roulette”, “Phavet”, “Brym Al Mar”, “The Finding”, and “Sweetest Invitation”.  “Skaldic Roulette” is initiated by minimal bass beat and ambient sonic soundscapes followed by violin wonders which sync up and blend rhythmically together.  Its composition is brilliant, as she mysteriously reveals more depth through lyrical and poetic Scandinavian bliss: “Lights from across the sea…lost notes, in a bottle…on the shore…”.  “Phavet” is a cinematic story of electronic production which really speaks to me, especially when it comes to the derivation and inspiration – from a traditional Finnish Folk Song…half of my nationality.  Each bow draw across the each violin strings is luscious and energetic and will trigger and captivate emotion.  “Brym Al Mar” is a thematic blend of liquid original dubstep feels and uplifting violin composition.  Energetic vibes will freeze time and take you to ancient medieval past-life, made possible by sonic time-travel.  

“The Finding” is a long-awaited journey found within each beat pulse of subsonic original creations and intentions.  Luminous frequencies and violin instrumentation tied with foreign Icelandic lyrical messages are found in her voice, angelic drones heard through overcoming’s of a shadow, a found self, a discovery.  “Sweetest Invitation” is the sweetest invitation of sound seen through the eyes of the universe.  A dramatic approach of cinematic electronic production is the theme of this track, as it will pull, twist, and spiral you up and down.  Through sound, she reveals a narrative approach and will take you on a journey, an escape into spirituality and depths of the ocean heard through deep bass lines and violin technique.

HANNAH is a creative producer and a truly gifted violinist, and the BRYM EP surely reveals this.  Very immersed with the study of Nordic and Middle Eastern traditions, she channels this knowledge and experiences in Eastern Europe through her own creation of sound and composition.  Influenced by artists such as Massive Attack, Trentemoller, Phaleh, Bonobo, and Boards of Canada, she will continue to be inspired and therefore will continue to create around her passions and experiences.  I really enjoyed Brym and the journey it took me on, it left a powerful impact on me, and was astonished with her craft of creations.  I am excited to see Hannah continue to grow as an artist, as she is a driven artist with visible passion.  Ever since this release, she has been on a extended 2014 Summer Tour  with many more dates being added as Fall approaches…be sure to catch her at her upcoming performances at Wanderlust Festival and Burning Man.

Psymbionic | Parallels Part 2 – Eye [Gravitas Recordings]

time July 4th by Clear Shadow authorTags: , , , , , , , , ,

Psymbionic releases Part 2 of “Parallels” [Eye], on Gravitas Recordings on July 1st, 2014. This second part of “Parallels” explores a parallel genre to that of a heavier bass influenced feel for Part 1. It revels an atmospheric creation of downtempo/chill feels, an experiment that illustrates Psymbionic’s versatility, a dive into another realm – a pull into the Eye of the Storm. The eye is a region of mostly calm weather at the center of strong tropical cyclones, and through sounds, John Burchman, expresses a deep meditation of fulfilling low tempo frequencies, a whirlwind of cloud hypnotization. Clear and light sounding extraterrestrial communication reveals futuristic visions of new-world change, enlightened transformations, and exploration of versatility.  Versatility of production is rare, and when a product of rarity is illuminated, full-depth creativity is expressed giving the creator a sense of forward thinking and acceptance of change as important factor in culture in many fields of life- Psymbionic has done that with Eye.

Eye consists of 5 auditory chill out portals: “One Thing” ft Cristina Soto,”How Am I Not Myself” ft. Govinda, “S ilkscreen” ft. Soulular, “Sonder” ft. The Digital Connection, & “Silkscreen ( ill-esha remix ). One Thing ft. Cristina Soto is downtempo galore, a future chill trap experience ready to sooth your ear pineals.  Psymbionic’s rhythmic future bass composition and fluidity blends passionately with Cristina Soto’s mesmerizing vocals as she touches your heart chakra with her deeply thought lyrics, an angelic escapade.  How Am I Not Myself ft. Govinda is initiated by Govinda’s sensual frequencies resonating from string instrumentation of the violin.  High-pitched synthesizer and a lively melodic tempo on Psymbionic’s behalf symmetrically syncs up in addition, and a spacey future garage atmosphere is present.  This tune calmly sooth your present state of mind and will unblock passages of a forgotten memory.

Silkscreen ft. Soulular is a co-production between the two, a chill-step portal, a swim into infinity, a closer pull into the eye of the storm.  Souluar’s organic sound composition and spacey sounding downtempo dubs mesh well with Psymbionic’s signature melodic uplifts and glitch/bass exposure, this is the creation of two soulful producers joining forces.  Sonder ft. The Digital Connection is a spacey chill tale into the unknown, an epiphany within an epiphany.  This is a future bass mystery waiting to be revealed and is felt within electronica ambience.  Psymbionic’s signature sounds can be heard sporadically thoughout the tune, and a deep rhythmic glitch fusion of The Digital Connection follows through creating a liquid groove.  Silkscreen remixed by ill-esha is a glitch masterpiece full of limitless synth frequencies and melodies.  She produces a re-occurring glitch pattern which gives it a mind of its own, it’s a distinction of rarity illuminating the original production, an aftermath of chills down your spine.

Submerge into the eye of the storm and prepare for a lift-off into explorations of the sounds and tempos of the universe and beyond.  Psymbionic reveals a downtempo/chill side to his music production in variation and style.  Not only does he create variety in Part 2 of “Parallels”, but also a variety of styles  and collaborations of accomplished vocalists, instrumentalists, and producers.  John Burcham is a driven force of light that isn’t afraid to explore other dimensions of sound frequencies, a creative and fresh outlook.  Like a thread weaving together with other threads, and like sacred geometrical patters coming together, a flowing towards a creation of warmth is revealed as Psymbionic weaves sounds, textures, and rhythms together. This results in the creation of pulsating and radiating sounds meant to trigger brainwaves, and therefore release and cleanse energies, a fresh feel of relief.  The fact that this was written, mixed, AND mastered by John himself amazes me. As AfroMonk himself likes to put it, Keep it Fresh.

Join the Gravitas crew this Saturday, July 5th at plug.dj‘s “Just A Chill Room” for Psymbionic’s DIGITAL album release party & Q&A!

The Widdler – “OGO” (MalLabel Music)

time May 18th by Clear Shadow authorTags: , , , , , ,

The Widdler released “OGO” on MalLabel Music on Tuesday, May 13th and currently stands #4 on Beatport’s “Dubstep Top 100 Releases”.  If you’re not familiar with The Widdler, now is the time to start familiarizing with this innovative producer that is pushing boundaries in the underground dubstep and bass music scene. He has a very creative original spooky spark to him, which is revealed through his unique sound design – he is an innovator and originator of “dub” sound.  A little bit about The Widdler, he was born in Tel Aviv and is currently residing here in the music capital of the world, Austin, TX.  Yoni Oron has been playing and producing music since he was 10 years old, and constantly practices to perfect his skills. Recently signed to OWSLA Records, he incorporates daily mix sessions into his everyday life, which is revealed through his impeccable performances – I witnessed his latest performance at Barcelona here in Austin a couple months ago during SXSW and it was a thrilling night full of deep felt bass dubs.

“OGO” consists of 6 rich yet spooky dub filled tracks: “Gitfukt”, “Killa Bitz”, “Lobster Trap”, “Martian Ambassador”, “Ogo”, and “Space Balloon”-  each containing within it a very mysterious vibe, taking you on a whirlwind of unimaginable bends, twists and spooked-out frequencies.  “Gitfukt” follows a deep bass heavy theme, a sign of what to expect in this release; these original dubstep frequencies meshed with laser sounding beams will hypnotize then levitate you, twist and spiral you out onto a high energy and ghostly filled atmosphere.  “Kill Bitz” slithers with a mystical vibe to it, eerie bass growls will enter your ear pineals and take you on a video game space tour, an unexpected mission, a challenge aimed to clear a shadow.  “Lobster Trap” is definitely a favorite, it’s like a maze; a turn of events waiting to happen; a space battle filled with minimal dubs mixed with heavy sounding vibes and intricate xylophonic melodic sounding strikes which blend perfectly with the short vocal incorporations.  

Martian Ambassador” is initiated with a passage filled with deep groove and midtempo feels of dubs and wurbbles, which reveal an otherworldly being: The Martian Ambassador. “Ogo” is the spookiest of them all, an arrival to a new destination, “Ogo”; a condition of mental divergence, he finds himself on the planet “Ogo”, part of an intellectual elite…a construct of  his psyche.  These deep bass drops create energies of Shamanic cleansing that is heard through ancient Widdler signature and mind blowing audible vibrations.  This release concludes with a high feel, a bounce off on the “Space Balloon”, a continuation of deep bass dubs and multitude amount of vibrant arpeggios can be felt then released.

“OGO” showcases a variety of dub styles and frequencies, and will cleanse the shadows of your soul through deep dub triggers of bewitching sound composition.  A leading figure in what has been deemed the “Deep Dub Renaissance”, he will, without a doubt, continue to keep breaking boundaries, making the impossible possible, and therefore will lift you off into space, maybe even higher – he will take you to an extraterrestrial landscape waiting to be discovered.  His organic, melodic, tribal and visionary sounds are challenging the paradigm in the dub step scene. Creating original and groundbreaking dubstep “drops”and crescendos, The Widdler will invigorate and clear your being.

J:Kenzo – J:Kenzo

time September 24th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , ,


Legend J:Kenzo is back! This is his first full length. Tempa records delivers with another classic. This album brings back memories. I’ve kept myself at a decent distance from dubstep due to the massive abuse of mid-range wobbles. Yeah, you can call me one of those hipsters who says they hate dubstep. Truth is it’s not easy knowing that the original dubstep musical form sounds NOTHING like the new age brostep. J:Kenzo is one of those names that is just all to familiar and impossible not to to pick up.

J:Kenzo delivers! This is album reminds my of why I loved dubstep so much. It’s dark, deep, minimal and bass heavy. The low end just gives you that tingling feeling as waves of bass flow through your body. This is where the original dubstep sound came from. There’s no question what the music evolves into there will always be albums like this that stand the test of time.

Turntable.fm | Glitch / Chill Dubstep / IDM

time August 2nd by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , ,

Turntable.fm is changing the game for online social media. If you haven’t heard of Turntable.fm you should probably be warned it’s VERY ADDICTING. The site is fairly new and currently still in Beta from my understanding but quite complete as is already.
Ever want to DJ and play music for others? Turntable.fm gives you the opportunity to do just that. There are rooms that you can join that have a specific theme or you have the option to make your own. The rooms can have up to 5 DJ spots when created. Create or join a room that suites your mood.

Once you’re in a room you’ll notice there are tons of fun avatars of people with points and fans. Depending on how many DJ spots there are you’ll find people on the stage with one person having a spotlight on them showing that they are playing a song. The name of the song and artist scroll across the screen of the stage giving you the option to add the song you’re listening to any of the more popular music social sites to share or buy.

The bottom of the room you’ll find a meter with a Lame button and Awesome button. This is where the whole social media thing comes in. You’ll be able to vote Lame or Awesome for each song playing. Every time you hit Awesome the DJ who is playing the song gets 1 point. Now if you hit Lame the meter will tip closer to the Lame side. No points are deducted from the DJ if someone hits Lame but if the meter gets too close to Lame it will skip the song.

The major success and appeal of the site is that you can create your own custom que of music from the existing library that Turntable.fm has hosted by Medianet. You can search a particular song or artist and a list of music related to your search appears where you can preview the songs and easily add the song to your que list. Now this is where it gets good. If you’re a producer or have songs that are not contained in the library you have the option of uploading your own music!!! That is right! You are limited to 40mbs and MP3 format but besides that you can upload your own music, works in progress, or favorite song not listed in the library. A huge concern is that if once uploaded will the song be added to the Turntable.fm library. The answer is NO BUT keep in mind that any user can add the song you play to their list. I’ve uploaded a few dubs that I have and realized later that others have added it to their list. No one can download it but I can see how some artist and people might be upset that some of their unreleased music is being played. The major plus of the que list is that Turntable.fm saves everything you’ve added to your list including the MP3 you’ve uploaded so you can have a giant list of music ready to go for whatever room you’re in.

The more points you get from people hitting Awesome allows you to unlock some sweet new avatars. Also keep in mind that you can tell who Awesome’d the song you are playing by seeing who is bobbin’ in the room. There’s nothing like the rush you get from seeing the whole room just bobbin’ to your tune. You can also become a fan of someone in Turntable.fm. Right now it doesn’t mean much but the feature enables notifications to your e-mail about when someone you’re a fan of takes a DJ spot in turntable.fm. This allows you to know when someone you follow is in a specific room so you can go listen to them DJ.

The last thing I want to mention about Turntable.fm is how there are Owners and Mods for rooms. If you create a room you’re allowed to Boot people from the room or remove them from the DJ spot. The owner of the room also sets the room description and creates the rules. The mod of the room is usually the owner of the room but if the owner leaves the room the person who has been in the room the longest is assigned as the mod. If the owner returns he still maintains authority without having to worry about it. If the mod leaves the room it is passed on to the next person who has been in the room the longest.

Why is Turntable.fm so addicting?! The chat room, hearing new music others play, seeing what people enjoy, talking crap to people who play terrible music, networking with other similar likeminded DJs or producers, and most of trying to acquire as many points as you can and flex your musical taste. I’ve been recommending Turntable.fm to everyone I know because it’s a great way for producers to connect and network with their fan base. I run a run a room on Turntable.fm that has guest appearances by Mexicans with Guns, +verb, Ben Samples, Elfkowitz, Michael Menert, Protohype, Subsynthesis, etc… Overall it’s a great way to connect with other people who enjoy the same style of music. My room is: Glitch / Chill Dubstep / IDM you can generally find me in there throughout the entire week while I’m at work. Come out and check it out! Be warned though… Only rule implemented is NO BROSTEP! So no aggroo basslines! Keep it chill for the most part so we can all jam and enjoy music while we work or hanging out online.

Things I’d like to see added to Turntable.fm:
iPhone APP
Owner/Mod can skip a song
Avatar add-ons: hoola hoop, poi, glowsticks, etc…
More Avatars

The Walton Hoax / Chemical Burn / Exclusive DL

time May 14th by Dj EA authorTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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!

Bio:

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.

Scott Nyce / The Obscene Gardener of Filth

time May 6th by Dj EA authorTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Fire Friday Mix comes from the one and only Scott Nyce out of Dover, Delaware. Scott is a DJ legend of sorts around here and it has been a pleasure to get to know him and share the stage with him recently. He has a lot of passion for music and helping build the scene around here. Like myself (and prob just about every other DJ), he doesn’t seem to get much sleep, so you can catch him doing online ustream sets in the middle of the night at least once a week lately. This double-genre studio mix of dubstep and dnb goes hard and will surely help you kick your day in the face!

You can catch Scott Nyce live this summer along with myself, Drivepilot, Minnesota, Dirty Talk, Voodoo Farm, Bassdread, and HMAZZ at Dewey Beach Delaware’s first ever Electronic Dance Music Festival on Friday July 29, 2011. All of the details here: Dewey Beach EDM Fest.  So stoked about this show! Can’t go wrong with a rave at the beach :p

Bio:

Scott Nyce was born in Newark, NJ and later moved to Delaware as a child. He has been a Drum and Bass DJ since 1997 and continues to be highly regarded as an institution in “The Delaware Underground.” As a small child, he was attracted to almost all things underground, obscure, and dark. Scott has been driven by a plethora of musical influences and discovered EDM shortly before turning 15. As he spent the next two years quietly jumping from party to party, trainspotting DJs and observing EDM culture, he became saturated in electronic music. At 16, he discovered the early sounds of Breakbeat Hardcore; the earliest form of Drum and Bass/Jungle. At 17, he decided to buy a pair of turntables, teach himself how to spin, and eventually throw his own parties locally. In about a year and half, Scott was being booked for shows in the Tri-State area and Canada. He has opened up and performed next to artists such as Ray Keith, DJ SS, Dieselboy, Storm(UK), and many others.
In the early part of 2000, Scott began producing everything from EDM to Ambient film scores. He continues to do so today. As a DJ, Scott has performed at events both big and small. He’s played everything from house parties to rental halls, beach parties and parking garages to major music and arts festivals. To date, he has branched out into other genres such as Dubstep, Glitch-Hop/Crunk, Electro, and Tribal House.
