Conjuring sounds of 80s and 90s electro and next generation house music, ELI ESCOBAR‘s first release on DITHER DOWN RECORDS easily worked its way into high rotation here at Manalogue. Ideally, this one is for dark spaces but if you can’t find yourself listening to any of the tunes in this single, close your eyes.
The latest remix from PSYMBIONIC is a spicy, glitchy shuffle. The Beastie Boys’ classic “Intergalactic” is textured with basslines and a stuttered beat. Both the vocal and instrumental versions are offered free downloads. The drop at about the three-minute mark is particularly deadly – this one’s going on high rotation.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems like Winnipeg is a hotbed for ghetto funk. We’ve seen some incredible acts come through this city – NICK THAYER being the latest. We can thank our friends atMUSIC FIRST for this show.
I can’t imagine a producer as diverse as Thayer. Everything he does falls loosely into breaks, but the tempo ranges in his production makes him stand out. Yes, there’s breaks plain and simple, but also some of the best ghetto funk and dubstep I’ve heard Thayer has noodled.
MC2 has an epic EP of bass music. The short player was released on January 9 and you can grab it from beatport. Below are a couple previews of the tunes and below the jump you’ll find some downloads to pleasure your low-end fantasies.
Guns N’ Roses released “Knockin on Heaven’s Door” sometime when I was in elementary school. I made a mixtape (on cassette tape no less) with the song on it and brought it to school for our lunch-hour sock hops. It was pretty awesome but not nearly as deadly as MC2‘s bass-heavy, glitch version.
This next tune of his is a bit more my speed. I’m really digging the glitch and ghetto funk and well, the tempo adjustment makes dancing so much more fun.
The French producer also just released a glitchy mixtape (the digital kind you can download) which got me rockin.
