A few weeks back Teebs released a limited edition hand-painted B-Sides counterpart of a selection of out-takes and remixes from Ardour. Only 150 were made and they sold out in under a day. For those that were unlucky enough to miss out on securing one you’ll be happy to know that Teebs has now made available a previously unreleased CDR from 2009. Similar in vein to the B-Sides release, the unnamed 2009 CDR contains a total of 10 tracks containing a selection of unreleased pieces and alternate versions of music that didn’t originally make the cut for Ardour or the B-Sides.


22tape, whom you might remember from this earlier post, has just offered up a tasty remix of The Glitch Mob’s ‘Drive It Like You Stole It’. Compiled for the official ‘Remix It Like You Stole It’ competition, 22tape is in the running to be featured on TGM’s upcoming Drink The Sea remix album. A well deserving prize imo!


Blogged by Flying Lotus over a year ago on the Brainfeeder site, this mix is apparently FlyLo’s “first real glimpse into the mind of The Motherfucking Gaslamp Killer”.
I haven’t been able to find much more info other then what was posted with the original blog post here, but what I can tell you from personal listening is that it’s a solid 70min journey through everything that the ‘beats’ genre has to offer. Spaced out, acidic-fueled, bass-heavy hip-hop blended with whacked out dusty samples, guitar riffs, dis-jointed piano rolls, and everything else you never thought you’d find being blended into this type of music. For those familiar with GLK, you’ll know not to second guess anything he ever does and this mix is a true testament to that. Similar in vein to a lot of Shadow’s early work, this is a mix all beat heads should have in their library.


A few weeks back I received an email from a producer named 22tape. Having come across the blog, he was in the midst of doing some self-promo for an upcoming EP release of his – MosaicChangeTone. Included was a link to download said EP. Summed up in the email, he described the release as “downbeat vinylistic hip hop with a smidge of glitch” – instantly I was intrigued.

I really enjoy being confronted with music that I have no previous knowledge of. Needless to say I jumped at the chance of being offered up some fresh beats from a producer Id never heard of. When your offered up new music like that you have no expectations. There’s nothing previous to judge your listening on – you’re mind is open and the music is able to do it’s work as intended. And work the music did.


Pretty Lights new label has just dropped and has offered up it’s first release. In usual PL fashion they’re releasing the album in the same way as which PL’s previous albums have been released: free high quality digital download with a donate feature for those that enjoy the music.


Warning! Shameless self promotion contained within. 😉 Few weeks back I was booked for a down tempo hip-hop and trip-hop set. Genre’s Id never previously had the opportunity to play to a live crowd, and with being such a huge lover of hip-hop, trip-hop and all the beats genres (as you’ll probably notice from trawling […]


I love discovering new music, even moreso when I don’t expect it. It happened today whilst I was surfing Youtube for some Flying Lotus vid clips. Having a quick browse I noticed a video of a remix of ‘Do The Astral Plane’ – my favourite track from his new album ‘Cosmogramma’. The original is a […]


Glitch-Hop is on the menu. It’s all iv been listening to lately. Iv been on a bit of a hiatus from other music. Ever find how you sway from genre to genre? One month you might be totally obsessed with a particular sound and that’ll be the only thing you listen to for weeks on end, and then as fast as it begun, it’ll stop and you’ll find it all sounding really stale? Well, over the past few months iv been on the glitch train, and I can’t see it sounding stale any time soon.


I’ve been kind of slack with updating the blog as of late. Busy in the midst of organizing Substance’s 2nd Birthday event, and trying to get the new Substance website online. It’s kind of taken up all of my spare time and unfortunately the blog has had to take a back seat. Anyway, over the […]


Some of you may already be familiar with DJ Kper’s ‘Wonk Funk’, so please don’t get annoyed that im posting up old stuff, but it’s one of those mixes that’s just too good not to share. So whilst it may be old and some of you may have already heard it, those of you who have not NEED to give it some time.
