Level Attack | Sugarpill & Stephan Jacobs ft Naada

time December 3rd by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , ,

Level Attack by Sugarpill and Stephan Jacobs featuring Naada is FINALLY due out on Addictech December 6th via Muti.

I don’t think there is any bigger release to date for 2010 that compares to this tune. The first time I met Sugarpill in person I drove up to Sarasota to catch his workshop. It took 3 hours to get there and you know what it was totally worth it because I got to met Evan in person obviously but I also got to hear Level Attack for the first time. We were driving over to the workshop and he pulls out his ipod and plays some tune and immediately I knew that it was an instant classic. The vocals by Naada are so clean and don’t take away from the beat. Everything about this tune is absolutely stunning. It’s easily my favorite track of ALL of 2010. EASY. There isn’t a time that I don’t get goosebumps every time I get to hear it dropped in one of the twos sets.

Hope to see this tune take my close friends to the next level. They definitely deserve it. Rumor has it they have a live version of this track in the works for shows together. You’ll definitely want to jump on that.

Along with the single expect banging remixes from other big names in the community including Ben Samples, Great Scott, Willy Whompa, & Chris B. Level Attack is due out in Addictech December 6th! You’ll def want this tune in your arsenal along with the remixes.

Afro Monk’s recent hot picks!

time August 13th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , ,

There has been a great influx of fantastic music going around. A few of my producer friends that I’m contact with have put out some banging tunes together in the recent weeks. I figure I put this together instead of posting a Fire Friday Mix!

I wanted to share with you all some of the music I’ve been jamming out too. As time progresses it seems like more and more are jumping into this whole bassy glitch scene and at the sametime the producers who have been around keep getting better.

Hope you enjoy as much as I have!
