It seems like a relatively short period of time since mankind mapped the human genome. Since that fateful day scientists have been trying to pinpoint all the specific characteristics associated with each individual base pair and the greater effects of making adjustments to these pairs. I personally believe that Steven Hawley and Sage Schwarm are the closest to cracking this genetic code. It is obvious that they have already figured out the exact base pair that stores funk and have exploited this knowledge to the delight of their fans. You may know the midwestern duo better as Codebreaker (yes from the Miami Horror ‘Make You Mine’ remix you had stuck on repeat all those months back). These two were hard at work 6 months ago on finishing their 7-song EP/album The Space Chase, but I hadn’t heard much from then since. That was until I listened to their summer mix ‘The Warm Touch,’ and it was well worth the wait. In a word: sexy.
It’s all fun and games now but Madeon is only 17 years old. Already established as one of the most skillful producers in the world, it’s only a matter of time before he’s sleeping with your girlfriend and passing you up for that upper-management promotion.
But in all seriousness, I’m excited for many more years of music from this young and talented artist. He just released his live mashup three days ago and it already has half a million hits. It’s pretty great not only for it’s musical content but also because Madeon single-handedly bitch slaps every hack mashup artist out there. He seems to raise the bar with everything he releases and there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight. Down? Yeah me too. Smile Like You Mean It (Madeon Remix)For You (Radio Edit) Shuriken
both sound excellent (love speedball 2). Another video. This one is extremely bad quality but you can still make out some tunes.
^^at 3:30 in this vid there’s another unreleased song that ppl are raging about on the forums. Luckily there is a better quality version of that song here:
On being asked to upload the new set, the man in charge noted “I’ve tried everything, we have no chance to upload this set. It contains lots of (or too much) unreleased tunes, which will be released in 2013 or later damn and sorry mates”
2013 seems ridiculous, and people mentioned that they expect at least an EP by the end of this year.
You heard it first in funkytown. Paris Burns will be blowing up everything you know and love in a few months. This is stuff that made me fall in love with electro in the first place. Crunchy, flourish heavy, and tireless in arrangement, the first track I heard from them, “Rythm & Bass” was like a medley of my current favorite electro and drumstep artists condensed into an exhausting five minutes. They are true magicians in the studio. Their material is varied in style but uses a sound palette that has become pretty common in electro. However, each track is dense, constantly drawing new sounds from some filthy Pandora’s box.
Check out their newly released EP, “Spectrum” on soundcloud or just download the entire thing for free from their website. Also keep updated on their releases by showing them some love on facebook.
Alec Carlsson is not your average 16 year old. When I was 16 I was obsessed with girls and looking for any opportunity to see the world while my parents were still flipping the bill. For Mr. Carlsson, his opportunities to see the world come in the form of tours, and at this point the girls are probably obsessing over him (of course he is also from Paris, which has never been a bad pickup line in any country…). With the musical talents of a modern Mozart and nothing but time ahead of him to hone these talents, you should probably remember the name. Here is a recent release entitled ‘Paris Fried Chicken’ which is so auditorily delicious it would bring a tear to even the Colonel’s eye.
The next is a really phenomenal mix done by the trio Altered Beats (composed of Blorgio, Kuzam, and Evilbass) whose members hail from different parts of Italy so you know they have style. Their self-proclaimed “electro-turbofunk” genre is designed for dancing and this summer mix is perfect if you want to guarantee good music while still enjoying your own party. So from Bologna to your speakers comes the Altered Beats’ Summer Mixtape 2011. Enjoy.
Since I was busy this past month, let’s recap with our favorite guys before we move on to new stuff: Skream, D-Jahsta, Noisia, Trolley Snatcha, and Grimblee (introduced on The Dubwoofer) all dished out some pretty supreme vibes.
Ever since he remixed Swagga and dropped Evil Freddy in the same year, I’ve thought D-jahsta was a no good skanky badman. While he’s surely been keepin tracks up since then, none have quite confirmed my suspicions as strongly as slug bass. Turn this up and you should have no problem creepin
