The past few days I've been jamming on some Incan Abraham.

Self-destructo-vibes from Dave Luxe. Step into the club and explode into a giant, flame shooting fire-monster.

Sounds to me like NiT GriT is coming round in full swing. His work is growing in popularity--and rightly so. Clean. Liquid. Filth.
Flux Pavillion is soon to be the reigning king of all the lands of dubstep. Monarchical production on this sword-slicing, heroic, slobber/banger.
Freestylers - Cracks feat. Belle Humble (Flux Pavillion Remix)
Please enjoy these songs in moderation. Be sure to mix it up with music that you can't hear in clubs. Otherwise, your brain might die.
Do you ever have those moments? You know, the moments where you:
- are walking down a dark alley at night,
- have a glock in ya pants,
- are wearing dark sunglasses and a leather jacket
- with hood up
- just left a shady house party in Brooklyn,
- want to kill the people who murdered your mother

There is undeniably something strangely clean about his 'sound.' He is not afraid of the funk. Nor does he fuck around with breakdowns.
Buy Sparkle Vision on bandcamp. (All proceeds go to FuzZ and none to Steve Jobs) :D
You can find moar FuzZ on his Soundcloud, and you can tell him how much you like 'Sparkle Vision' directly to him via his Twitter or his Myspace.
"Don't fuck with me, don't fuck with me" are the opening lyrics to Jai Paul's seemingly only full length original track, BTSTU. Singing in a high pitched falsetto voice, this young British producer sounds a lot like Thom Yorke and a little bit like Nick Pitera. Ok, mostly just Thom. The music forces your head to nod with a simple beat, Prince-like guitars and a somewhat metallic sounding wobble bass that is perfect for the track, though not heavy enough to satisfy dubstep fiends. As the track progresses, the instrumentation gets more and more dense, eventually leading to a sick horn section outro that overtakes the falsetto harmonies.
The icing on the Jai Paul cake is his remix of Emiliana Torrini's "Jungle Drum". I'm such a sucker for tracks with nothing heavy percussion + heavy synths and this one fucking hits the nail on the head. Bravo.
For as much as I love these tracks, there is one trend that should not and could not continue. BTSTU has a 2 measure chord progression that doesn't change once, and the Jungle Drum remix has a 4 measure chord progression that... yea... doesn't change once. Sure, Jai pulls it off with both tracks with his keen sense of (for lack of a better term) orchestration, but continuing this trend would be taboo.
So... what can come of a 21 yr old producer with 1 original track and 1 remix? A record deal with XL Recordings, of course (at least that's the rumor on the always-truthful interweb).
So for now... sit back, relax, right click, save as, and wait for Mr. Paul to crank out some new jams. You can be sure that I'll write them up asap.

I'm realllllyyyyy excited to announce that my new ep entitled 'Riding the Night - EP' will be released this Tuesday!! Super dooper stoked about this 3-track release... it really doesn't sound much like my last EP at all (in a good way, i hope :) You will be able to pick it up for free on soundcloud, and bandcamp (which has unlimited downloads in any file format) on the 17th.
More later on STRYKER MATTHEWS' SUBVADER REMIX and dj labam's whammalammer
Here at Tweaking Trays, we're quite supremely pleased to officially announce our next release===>==>=> Mellows- It's In The Stones/Ghostriding 7"
As I evaporate (you'll see the pun in about a minute) away from between the steadfast fingers of my addiction to the internet, there are but a few things that I'd like to take with me. In fact, I'd suggest that you do the same and take them, too.
They're tracks from Swimsuit (incl. Fred Thomas of City Center, Dina of Secret Twins, Shelley ex-Tyvek) off their first demo tape, which you can scoop for free here. I can't believe that I hadn't already taken this little slice of Ann Arbor/Ypsi, in form of reverberated/lo-fi/indie/pop punk sweetness, with me to Chicago this summer. Super stoked to hear such catchy jams from Ann Arbor/Ypsi locals, I can't wait to catch them playing around town this fall!
Yeah. It actually DOES sound like the cover looks. Forget the Mantra is the debut record from Nightlands (Dave Hartley from The War on Drugs) and I've been spinning it on my metaphorical record player for weeks. And it's kept me completely ecstatic. Beautiful textures are created with a myriad of instruments that harken to a particular time and place---memories held suspended to a particular emotion. Enormous soundscapes and lush instrumentation carry you across great plains and across the endless sky to the gentle coo of bright harmonies. Forget the Mantra feels more akin entering a new universe than it does putting on a set of headphones.
Dave recently wrapped up a tour with none other than Philly's Constant Hitmaker---- Kurt Vile (also once in The War On Drugs) but hopefully we'll see some more Nightlands action soon! For now, pick up Forget the Mantra from the Nightlands' bandcamp!
