Video Killed the Dubstep Star

So I've been effusively obsessed with this song for a few weeks now, but I've had to sit through that silly video again and again in order to hear it... until now. Sure, the M.I.A. album merited some of the attention it recieved, but as far as I'm concerned Warrior Queen has her beat, simply by virtue of her presence on Skream's "Check It" and this joint:

The Bug - "Poison Dart (ft. Warrior Queen)" [alt link]

P.S. - I desperately want to hear the Skream and Kode 9 mixes of this track. Knowing that they exist and not hearing them is vex'n me to no end. (Sorry.) "Help me, somebody!" as the Byrne/Eno track goes.

I'm sure this one has circulated plenty, but damn...

Skream - "Sandsnake" [alt link]

And as always, God bless you Hotflush:

Slaugher Mob - "L'Amour" [alt link]

In the midst of finals week here and my 40ish hour day provided me with much time to post some shit up. I know I'm missing some myspace links, so if you have trouble finding what you want to know, leave a comment and I'll try to help you out.

Got this Jahcoozi remix sent to us a little while ago. It's pretty dope. Rustspace.

Jahcoozi feat. M.Sayyid - Hitech (Rustie's Silver Shadow Remix)

B.O.B. - Use Ur Love

I think we got this one sent to us. Pretty hot jam from Kris Menace.

Kris Menace - Steamroller

Kylie Minogue - Speakerphone

Kinda weird group of people here:

Maroon 5 - Wake Up Call (Mark Ronson Remix) (feat. Wale)

Tocadisco feat Chelonis R Jones - Shrine (Extrawelt Remix)

Justice - Phantom pt. II (Soulwax Remix)

Charlie Wilson and T-Pain - Suppa Sexy

Here's one of my favorites off Freeway's new album.

Freeway - Still Got Love [alt link]

Switch got a new hot track out. Feeling this one.

Switch - Twisted Jazz

This track came out last year, but I just recently heard it and love it.

Theo Parrish - Falling Up (Technasia Rmx 1)

David's last post and some message board buzz inspired this next segment of tracks. And make sure you check this blog for a great selection of niche mixes.

Got this jam of a remix off a mixtape:

Ill Manna - Kiss Kiss (Sourface Remix)

Agent X got this song that's all popular now with the sick remix from TS7.

Agent X Feat Ultra - Perfect Girl (Ts7 Rmx)

DJ Q got a real nice remix of this Dizzee Rascal track.

Dizzee Rascal - Flex (DJ Q Remix)

This one's off a mix.

K.P. and Envy - Shorty Swing My Way (Chunky B Mashup)

DJ Lapel - Drinking Chardonnay

Ashanti ft. Ja Rule - Always On Time (Agent X Remix)

DJ V and Rolla - Music Takes Me Higher

Feel Good Time!

So much for the fresh and the's all stale and moldy up in herr 2day. I'm sure these trax will sound dated to some, not dated enough for me. Then again, all I listen to is Cocteau Twins these days. Egad!

Qualifide-Just Being Fooled (Probably my favorite HotFlushing to date, especially when put side by side that heavy, moody, and way boring halfstep the likes of Vaccine are holding over our heads these days.)

Dominik Eulberg-Bionik (Not even sure about that new LP, but this Ebiza '06 jammer is still repping that poppy Teutonic TechHouse that ages too quick, dies, and hovers eternally in dance music's nitrous tanks in the sky.)

And now to the Italian ecstasy drugs after-party...

Monday, December 10, 2007


With respect to T2 and Heartbroken, we've seen a recent surge of interest in the newest strand of dubstep: bassline house, speed garage, etc. Names are worth fuck all tho: Heartbroken is at the top of the UK charts, and its easily the catchiest track to emerge from the dubstep genre and all of its confusingly taxonimized devilspawn. Furthermore, the whole notion of bassline, combined with several other mitigating factors (to be discussed below) truly poses the Wubstep question: what happens (if/)when dubstep breaks in the states?

Now, me and C. Drugula can wax cross-continentally about this shit for days. However, as far as bassline/speed-garage is concerned, the potential is visible far beyond T2, who has become a media-darling in the press lately, giving out countless interviews where he says... well, pretty much nothing. The fact is, dubstep has been brewing for years now, and as the genre itself grows harder and harder to define, the potentiality of a continental breakthrough seems more and more plausible.

The way I see it, there are three factors that are poised to push dubstep into the American charts. First, you have the recent explosion of bassline bangers. I knew this shit was the real deal when about 2 weeks ago some doser outside the Disk Union in Shibuya actually stopped me as I was walking into the store with the question: "Eyo, you rike bass?"
"Hai, 'bass' ga daisukine!" I replied.
So for 500 yen he hooked me up with the most bootleg bassline mixtape this side of the Pacific. It was an unmarked CD-R in a slimline jewelcase, and the tracks contained averaged at a bitrate of 128 and lower (myspace and bebo rips, I'm presuming). So, all due respect to these artists, I didn't pirate this music off your pages, some poor sod in Tokyo did, and once you start dropping more wax I'll be first in line to cop it. But since most Americans don't have much exposure to bassline/speed-garage beyond Heartbroken, I feel it something of a communal obligation to share these tracks here, just so names beyond T2, names like Jamie Duggan, Jamie Ferguson, TS7, DJ Q, and so on can get into Americans' domespaces.

Cherish - Unappreciated (TS7 Bassline Remix)
[alt link]

Jamie Duggan & TS7 - Dubplate
[alt link]

Jamie Ferguson - How We Like It [alt link]

T2 - Hey
[alt link]

Concurrent with the proliferation of a countless array of this vein of speed garage bangers, we have the word of mouth surrounding the dubstep/bassline raves in Brixton and Sheffield (clubs like FWD>> and those infamous DMZ nights), which, as dubstep grows more and more popular seem to be moving closer and closer to London, as exemplified in the first full out and out dubstep Fabriclive being released this month, hosted by heavy-hitters Caspa & Rusko. You might remember Caspa from his oft-dropped Art of Noise remix... because, well, its completely unforgettable.

Art of Noise - Moments of Love (Caspa Remix)
[alt link]

On the other side of the spectrum, you've got Ecko and dubstarlets like Kym Myles. What Alice Deejay was to trance Ms. Myles must be to dubstep. Point illustrated:

Kym Myles - We Got a Love [alt link]

Finally, in this trifold takeover, there is the necessary cohesion offered to non-clubbing audiophiles in the form of perfect LPs. In the past two months we've gotten the new Burial LP, Untrue, which I think blows his first (which I always found sort of over-rated) out of the water, and the first full Pinch LP, Underwater Dancehall, not to mention the new Benga album due out any day now on Tempa. Yep, any day now.... we wait with good reason:

Benga and Coki - Night [alt link]

So, the Boy 8-bit remix of this track is getting blogged to the point of obliterating oversaturation. Sure it's good; definitely simple, as its title might imply. Meanwhile, I've heard next to not shit about this arguably defter, although admittedly less club-friendly, Leif reworking of Archangel. Scope it.

Burial - Archangel (Leif Remix)
[alt link]

Well, that's it for now, tho there's more where all of this came from, so stay tuned. And if he ever comes out of his cavernous enclave, C. Drugula's got more than me, so ask for him by name!!

Wednesday, November 21, 2007


Been getting the hook up on so many saucy new tracks lately, I can't hold this shit back. My avatar may be somewhat remiss in it's presence these days, but I'm here, like a cancer or an aneurysm, waiting. Waiting for the day when I return to your world of free-will and ispeak and bring that fire back to what's raw. Hold your breath and you'll die soon enough.

Slam - Azure (Radioslave Remix)
[alt link]

We all must question how men like Matt Edwards find the time to be so consistently balling on that producing/banging/remixing/label owning tip. You gotta hand it to the bastard; he's been rubbing us off for like 2 years straight with No Sleep.

Astra Moveo - Wrecked
[alt link]

Same goes for our good friend, James Holden, who- much like Tokyo wonderfreak Gal Sone- just can't seem to get enough. In addition to remixing/producing/schooling and owning Border Community, is now in a new project that might be a band it seems and hit us up with a taste of the moveo

Vicious - Best Robots
[alt link]

You may not know Vicious, or maybe you do, but if you don't, you will, and if you do, you're still poppin' off. Constantly developing, I always expect greatness from my boy, but this is really something that delivers on a level of mycrosymphonics beyond which I had imagined. Starting off like a simple IDM exercise, this track deftly develops into a suite of strings and bass synths that keeps banging for time immortal. Like AFX and Matthew Dear having a naughty tea party at the Metropolitan Opera, best robots has stuck with my for weeks. Do yourself a favor and check it out, there's something eVil brewing, and it's definitely still pissing.

James Nasty - Fake ID
[alt link]
DJ Metric - These Boots Were Made For Walking It Out
[alt link]

Great new bmore club from James Nasty and club city recs, making moves. DJ Metric holding it down, mad props for the comp man, I am all over this track.

And ditto with the following, a minimix I am really enjoying if only for banging without sounding like everything else these days... fuck homogeneity in dance music!!

Thanks for all the solid drops, keep them coming. Y'all are disco motherfuckers.
"Hey rocks pop,

We love your blog, thanks for all the great music and such.

Waybe you would be interested in posting our new mix. its called 'We'll House You' and doesnt feature any electro-mosh/ed banger shit whatsoever....we're bringing house back.


1. Methasulem - Zombie Intro
2. Scuola Furano - The Good Life in tha Maus
3. Blaqstarr - Shake It To The Ground (Switch & Santogold Remix)
4. Mapei - Pretty Girls (The Infiltrators Remix)
5. Tocadisco - Shrine (Crookers Remix)
6. Hijack - Trouser Jazz
7. Madox - Plastic Fantastic (Riva Starr Remix)
8. Mark Grant Feat Dajae - Say You Will
9. Sandy Rivera Haze - Freak (Bart B More Remix)
10. Samim - Heater (Diplo Remix)
11. Deadset - Tick Tock
12. Riva Starr - Bubble
13. Alter Ego - Chicken Shag
14. DJ Delicious & Rutte - Jaja (Claude Vonstroke Remix)
15. Jahcoozi - Double Barrel Name (The Bald & The Beautiful Remix)
16. Gui Boratto - Gate 7

For more evidence, have a peek at

Yosh! You happy now b-snack?

Monday, November 19, 2007


As is the norm these days, in no mood to wax fanciful about these tracks, 3/4 of which are out of respect to the poor sod who wanted to listen to that Drexciya jammer I posted last month. Some bonus Abstract Thought for you, my aquatic friend! In truth, I just wanted to share this 6Blocc gem with y'all, which will certainly become a vaunted classic in the ThrowbackStep subgenre. Oh lord....



Abstract Thought-Bermuda Triangle

Dj Phinesse has been turning out tracks like crazy the past couple weeks. A lot of bangers, and you'll have to do some interneting to find them all, too many for one post. Here's a couple of the heaters.

DJ Phinesse - Fallin In Luv [alt link]

DJ Phinesse - Get My Gun (Fully Loaded Clip Mix) [alt link]

DJ Phinesse - Find A Dream

And, a remix from Curtis Vodka

DJ Phinesse - Get On Down (Curtis Vodka Remix)

Tameil also just released this to the internet world.

DJ Tameil - Shotgun Buck

Not Alan Braxe's best work right here, but considering its a remix for Kylie Minogue, shit is definitely worth checking out.

Kylie Minogue - 2 Hearts (Alan Braxe Remix) [alt link

New Wu-Tang, sounds old and gritty like.

Wu Tang Clan - Take It Back [alt link]

Always nice when R&B artists compete with each other. Here's a pretty nice cover of J-Holiday's track by The Dream. Overall I like the Holiday one better, but the "left right left" part of this cover kills the original.

The Dream - Bed (J-Holiday Cover) [alt link]

Tuesday, November 6, 2007


This is a pretty rad remix of Matthew Dear by M.A.N.D.Y.

Matthew Dear - Don And Sherri (M.A.N.D.Y. Remix) [alt link]

Gonna try to throw up some of the crazy things in the radio station. Here's the first one:

KMFMD - Juke Joint Jezebel: The Giorgio Moroder Remixes

K.M.F.D.M. - Juke-Joint Jezebel (Poly-matrix)
K.M.F.D.M. - Juke-Joint Jezebel (Original Single Edit)
K.M.F.D.M. - Juke-Joint Jezebel (Metropolis)
K.M.F.D.M. - Juke-Joint Jezebel (Paradox)
K.M.F.D.M. - Juke-Joint Jezebel (Poly-matrix X-Tended)
K.M.F.D.M. - Kraut

Sunday, November 4, 2007


Greetings, cronies. I've been inundated with mid-term assignments for the past few weeks. But I've managed to make some music in meantime, mostly sample-based arrangements in Ableton - and now I'm going to share them with you...

Doctor Cuts - "Stained Glass Effigy" [alt link]

Doctor Cuts - "Cold Warriors" [alt link]

The first person to identify all the sample sources will be... duly ostracized.

And playing second fiddle to me today is Glasgow's Rustie, whose Jagz the Smack EP is gaining a reputation for causing parties to spontaneously materialize.

Rustie - "Clipper" [alt link]

Flying Lotus dropped the short but ever-so-sweet LP 1983 on Plug Research last year, and he recently followed it up with the Reset EP, yet another bite-sized appetizer, this time on Warp.

Flying Lotus - "Tea Leaf Dancers (Feat. Andreya Triana)" [alt link]

The new Boxcutter LP Glyphic is also pretty saucy. This dude is clearly among the dubstep cognoscenti, but Boxcutter's protean variations on the style have a fluidity that is uniquely his, and it would be a mistake to regard him as a one-trick dub pony. Glyphic is one of the most cogent releases among the slew of high-profile dubstep long-players dropping this fall. (Burial, anyone?) When a skanky bassline alone can no longer hold your interest, you can always count on Boxcutter to avoid such reductive genre formulas.

Boxcutter - "Glyphic" [alt link]

In other news, the new Box of Dub 2 compilation on Soul Jazz is replete with skanky basslines, but it contains a few tasty morsels, namely...

Cotti - "Tamil Dub" [alt link] and Kode 9 - "Stung" [alt link]

Dubstep everywhere I go. Keep an eye on Hotflush Recordings.

Benga & Walsh - "Military" [alt link]

Spectr - "Motion" [alt link]

Last but not least, here's one from the new Alter Ego LP Why Not?!, which is every bit as raucous as you expected it to be.

Alter Ego - "Fuckingham Palace" [alt link]

taco tuesdays

Love to get emails from Redfoo. This one should go over good on the dancefloor.

LMFAO ft. Fergie - Clumsy (Redfoo Remix V.2) [alt link]

Ghislain Poirer's new album is dropping on Ninja Tunes, which is awesome cause I havent bought anything from them since the 2003ish xen cuts expansion pack. Remix from Modeselektor

Ghislain Poirier - Blazin' (Modeselektor Remix) [alt link]

My Legs Are Throbbing

Music for this end-of-the world jammer that we seem to be on now. Shit sucks.


The Dragons-Cosmosis


Also, do yourself a BIG favor and pre-order Excepter's truly unbelevable 12 inch out next month on Paw Tracks. Shit will seriously sell out once people hear this brutalizer with its Thick Pigeon on acid a-side and the doped out tribal trance b. Get a tasty taste HERE. I hope to rip a side for y'all soon...once I figure out how to do so (David?).

And in other news around the hood, be sure to check out the heir apparents of the Happy Mondays, New Zealand's party jammers Pig Out! this MONDAY, OCTOBER 29 at The Silent Barn. Prepare yourself for hours of cowbell, sassy vocals, and booty bass. More to come soon, but chew on THIS for now. I've never seen a band work the fine-line between a bad joke and pure brilliance so fucking well.

r.i.p. dear friends

a sad week for piracy. this one goes out to the legends: the pink palace and the genius behind tv-links, now both behind bars (I hope I matter little enough to say this, but FUCK THE IFPI). r.i.p. dear friends, you shall not be forgotten. if this doesn't say it, i truly dont know what could.

so read up...
and ponder

Amen - now, for the greater glory of our savior, let us all deposit our wallets into the donation tray. While you're at it, why not buy a few indulgences?

Brothers and sisters, we must give ourselves over to the holy spirit - but is it the grace of our heavenly Father that dwells within this glorious song of praise? Nay, I say, it is only the pagan, sun-worshipping sonic alchemy of The Boredoms.

The Boredoms - "Jungle Taitei" [alt link]

And here's some excellent "dubstepno," as Resident Advisor, umm, dubbed it.

Martyn - "Shadowcasting" [alt link]

Alas, the time has come for thy humble servant to sacrifice at the academic altar, adios hombres.

To Barney, from America

While I personally like the Switch/Santogold one a bit more than this one from DTL, I figured the homie Surrender in Japan would like this one more, and it is still a banging remix.

Fuck This World

Emotionally, Psychically, Physically, Occupationally; I'm drained. I want to go somewhere else--somewhere dark and illuminous, flat and bouncy. Here are a few transport modules that have been taking me here, including two TRP exclusives from my man Marquis, whose "Another Life" will easily top my year-end list of bangers. Also, here's the utterly galatic Joakim remix of that Gucci Soundsystem song that came out earlier this year on everybody's new favorite cool kid, Death From Abroad.

Below/Underground-Another Life

Below/Underground-Invisible Cities

Gucci Soundsystem-Carpenter (Joakim Remix)

God Bless you all. Trying to post more, but the man, THE MAN!!!!!

when it rains, we ride the bus.

Got this visceral FlyLo flow for your Wednesday. Their new much hyped ep, Reset, is due out October 1. Judging from the tracks I've heard floating around the net, the ep will be pretty dope.

Flying Lotus - $tunt$ (Remix of Mr. Oizo)

Donis has a real nice rap track here.

Hot track:

I think I played this the other night, not super new, but still a good track to throw down with the remix.

I Want To Eat You

The past day has been a real nightmare, so here's a nightmarish piece of electronic music, in which BBC Radiophonic Workshop stalwart Delia Derbyshire brings the drones:

Delia Derbyshire & Berry Bermange - "The Dreams: Falling" [alt link]

Speaking of Delia, back in the day she spliced tape alongside David Vorhaus and Brian Hodgson, collectively known as White Noise. Their 1969 LP An Electric Storm is a mélange of psychedelic pop, musique concrète, and electronic avant-gardism which sounds curiously like Stereolab or Broadcast at times - but those bands weren't around back then, White Noise were in a league of their own.

White Noise - "Your Hidden Arms" [alt link]

something about blowjobs

Just got to listening to the new Kanye album. It's pretty good all around, I'm sure you can find the full thing somewhere, but I thought this song was "of note."

Kanye West - Champion [alt link]

This is a real hot jam that's not on the album.

M.I.A. - Big Branch [alt link]

Hot ass soca.

Russell Cadogan - Big Bottom Gyal

This is Not a Post

Salutations! The last few weeks have been all about packing, moving back to college, and getting my academics on, not to mention kicking it at The Silent Barn with Count Drugula - but I'm back to blogging.

The techno-dubsteb nexus has produced one of this year's best songs (the Villalobos "Apocalypto" remix of Shackleton's "Blood on My Hands"), and producer Andy Stott has been blurring the boundaries between the two genres lately. Stott was the sole tecnho artist on last year's Warrior Dubz compilation by the BBC's Mary Anne Hobbs, and he's been relentlessly dropping 12-inches on Boomkat's Modern Love label for several years. Here's the B-side from one of his recent 12" releases...

Andy Stott - "The Massacre" [alt link]

While Stott bridges the gap between techno and dubstep, groups like Excepter and Black Dice are blending techno and noise with lysergic results. Black Dice are preparing to release Load Blown, the follow-up to 2005's excellent Broken Ear Record, which found the group throwing down the occasional 4/4 under their mesmerizing soundscapes. The new album picks up where Broken Ear left off, which can only be a good thing. Black Dice member Eric Copeland has also just dropped a solo album, Hermaphrodite, consisting of a dozen pop-length songs that feature processed vocals and hazy melodies which are at once catchy and difficult to recognize.

Black Dice - "Roll Up" [alt link]

Eric Copeland - "Green Burrito" [alt link]

Last but not least, here's the latest Gui Boratto jam...

¡Oh RicardO!

The scattered refuse of August has become revitalized and those life sucubuses reassembled in an ungodly creation not unlike the penis robot that closes the Dead or Alive trilogy. And just who is going to be our September golum? Why, no one else than our favorite mystical minimalist, Ricardo Villalobos, that's who!

Until a month ago, our guru of the longue durée had cloaked his Fabric 36 in a sheet of mystique, refusing to even comment on it in his Wire interview. And then the bomb was dropped--the mix would contain nothing but Ricky's own material, most of it unreleased and unheard, pieced together to form one brilliant masterpiece of singular multiplicity. Well, that was at least what I was hoping for and baby, I GOT IT. THIS ALBUM FUCKING DESTROYS. IT WILL PROBABLY CHANGE EVERYTHING. VILLALOBOS IS THE SAVIOUR.


Hyperbole aside, the record is a total mindfuck--taking the listener on a mind trip through free jazz, a Yakudo jam session, twisted vocals and narratives, all while keeping that 128 in the background and never straying from the mighty 4. And yet, on any listen, the subject is bound to be tripped up by Villalobos masterful grasp on time and rhythm, always twisting and contorting the beat to unearth new treasures. It's basically the flipside of the equally brilliant Donuts--and it's about time someone since Mr. Yancey has delivered a full-on assault on normative conceptions of phrasing and sequencing within pop structures. It's like watching a Sol LeWitt cube city be disassembled piece by piece.

Well, as much as I'd like to just give you the album as one single track (for, like Donuts, that's the way to listen to this--why do we need to apply the categorizer 'mix' to justify one continuous piece of music?, I can't do it. Instead, I'll give you a health dosage of the album at its most bafflingly brilliant.

Ricardo Villalobos-Andruic & Japan

Well, moving down a step from outright brilliance to hot fiya in the TRP quality pyramid, Detroit's truly spectral techno talisman Omar-S dropped a single back in April with the understated title of "The Grandson of Detroit Techno!" I don't know what kind of ghosts Omar has floating through his machines, but his sedated yet bombastic style turns what should be a charging anthem into a floating, almost ethereal treat that truly evokes the sound of a city disappearing. Good job Omar!

Omar-S-The Grandson of Detroit Techno!

And to conclude this dancin' frenzy on the dubstep tip, the very consistent and non-South London-based Argon Records just dropped a doozy twelver from Babylon System that has been melting my internal organs in between Fabric 36 sessions. Check it!
