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.

Wiz Khalifa ft. 2Pac- Roll Up (VOODOO FARM Remix)

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

The Polish Ambassador / Future, Sex, Computers

time April 21st by Dj EA authorTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

David Sugalski aka The Polish Ambassador takes us on a funky glitchy ride with his latest release, “Future, Sex, Computers.” Reflecting a sense of maturity and directed vision, Future, Sex, Computers incorporates some of the slower, more spatial sounds of Sugalski’s downtempo alias Ample Mammal, while maintaining the high-energy, ass-shaking, electro madness that The Polish Ambassador is known for. The production is so clean and the tracks have so many elements that you can really just zone out and get lost in them. The album is amazing all the way through so it’s really hard to choose a favorite. I always look forward to when he posts a new track on soundcloud and already can’t wait for the next release!  Make sure to catch him on tour this spring. Thanks for keepin it fresh David!

The album was released through STS9’s heavy-hitting electronica imprint, 1320 Records. You can preview tracks and grab the release at thepolishambassador.bandcamp.com.

Check out his other sounds too at soundcloud.com/davidsugalski.

Here’s a bonus free download of an amazing Radiohead remix he did recently:

Much love and respect!

Asa / Sweeter Things EP

time March 3rd by Dj EA authorTags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Asa is a dj and producer out of Southampton, UK. I’d say that he is probably my favorite producer right now when it comes to the chill side of glitch and dubstep music. The detail that he uses in his production is absolutely mind blowing and the composition is stunningly beautiful. When I’m having a stressful day, I’ll throw on my headphones and listen to Asa’s music and it instantly calms me and puts a smile on my face. His upcoming  “Sweeter Things ep” is due out March 14 via all major online download sites. Here’s previews of the tracks and you can pre order the release now via i-tunes: Sweeter Things ep – pre order

He has a few amazing remixes that he is working on too. Here’s a preview of his Adele remix:

And, here’s a preview of his Garden Walls remix which he says will be a ten minute long piece when it’s finished:

Make sure to follow Asa on his facebook too as he is constantly posting updates on his various projects and even music from other producers that he has worked with or is a fan of.

There are a couple of full version previews of tracks from the album up now at his bandcamp page and he will be uploading more leading up to the release date.

Much love and respect!
