Voodoo Farm / Artist Spotlight

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

Voodoo Farm is the music project of NYC-based producer/DJ/filmmaker Liam Dirlam. The sound is described as “Electronic Dancerock” and infuses styles of Electro House, Dubstep, and Hip-Hop using live instruments, vocalists, and machines. Voodoo Farm’s first single, “Bangers & Cash” was placed on rotation on at MTV, VH1 and SpikeTV… also considered for mtvU’s “Best Freshman Video Award” in September 2010. They have a bunch of dope remixes that they’ve done recently that are up for free download at soundcloud.com/liamdirlam. Without fail, every time I drop one of their tracks live, there is always someone who will run behind the DJ booth to see what I’m playing, haha.  Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for their awesomeness. Check out the remixes below and grab the free downloads (alternative download links posted within the descriptions of the tracks on soundcloud). Also, each of the songs has a fun video to go along with them and you can check them all out at www.youtube.com/user/voodoofarmmusic.

Outkast ft Lady Gaga – Wheelz of Steel (VOODOO FARM Remix)

The Doors – People Are Strange (VOODOO FARM Remix)

Download (right-click save as): Adele vs. Jay Z vs. Biggie – Rolling in the Deep (Voodoo Farm Remix)

Dirlam and Robert E. Corrigan JR (Muscle Car Chronicles) are now working on a REMIX/B-SIDE album that will drop this summer for free.   Their second full-length album will be finished in September. I’m stoked to be sharing the stage with them this summer in Dewey Beach on July 29th! If you’re on the east coast, you should def check out this event: Dewey Beach EDM Fest

Sugarpill – Mind Machine EP

time March 15th by Dj EA authorTags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Sugarpill is a glitch/bass producer out of Los Angeles. I’ve been bumping his latest release “Mind Machine EP” in my car a lot lately.

My fave track off the ep is “Peeing on the Seat” which opens at a slow burn, combining 808 snare rolls, a glitched out Hammond, and a deep bass line before the drop where party moves into full throttle with heavy lazer bass, soaring synths, and one of the more colorful hiphop vocal samples used in recent memory. Here’s previews of the tracks from the release:

You can grab a copy of his debut ep for Simplify Recordings through addictech.com: Mind Machine ep

He also has just posted this dope track which is coming out March 20th on the Bass from Above compilation through subsynthesis.com and glitchdrop.com.  I highly recommend you grab this free release which features brand new tracks from some of the best glitch/bass producers on the scene right now.  Straight up fire! Grab it here: Bass From Above
