Sunday Mix '86

If there's anyone that's going to bring disco back, it's my bud Austin. Better known as TATT, he has been DJing at my college for a few years now. Myself being a DJ also, I've had some great memories DJing with him on the same night. Awesome times. Awhile back he decided to put his mixes on soundcloud to see how people would take them online. Well people liked them...a lot. Now he's chilling on cloud 9 and continuing to raise the bar for each mix he puts out. I see a lot of potential in his work. I really he think he has a chance to bring that unique groove to a wider audience within electronica. GL.

At 14 min damn.

Sunday Relax


Nothing like a Sunday and some smooth tunes.



Wednesday, fuck ya. Best day of the damn week so grooves needed.


So Elaquent

Some chill Sunday music right here. Just found Elaquent today and I'm really liking the music. His music is an interesting mix between hip-hop, jazz, and electronica which are three things I've been really into lately. Unfortunately I couldn't find shit about him other than the fact that hes a Canadian producer. Hope you like it. Check out his new EP, Parallel.


Those Youtube Bumps

This weeks youtube favs. youknowazgood.


Kendrick Lamar "good kid, m.A.A.d city"

Wow. Right when I thought Section 80 couldn't get better, Kendrick goes to the next level. "good kid, m.A.A.d city" is a mind blowing album. Been waiting for good mainstream hip-hop? Now there is. The albums is made up of throwback hip hop instrumentals that are a mix between smooth, late 80's hip-hop, and new age 808 kicks/bass. His lyrical flow is fast and in your face. His words are powerful, giving deep wisdom from his experience growing up in Compton. The album does a great job using skits and songs to bring the listener in to Kendrick's world. I'm sure Dr. Dre had something to do with this...(co produced).

Flying Lotus "Until The Quiet Comes"

"Until the Quiet Comes" is fire. Flying Lotus is best known for his groovy jazz like beat music*, his work puts you in a state of euphoria, head bumping to every beat. He was first made famous by his appearance on Adult Swims bumps. Now hes living the good life; champagne, shrimp, and even his own label, Brainfeeder Records (insane artists on this label).
*my best guess

This is Flying Lotus's 4th album and it lives up to his long standing career.  This album is comprised of almost 20 songs and is definitely meant to be listened to in full. The transitions are superb and as your going though the album it feels like your going on a journey. Definitely less hard, in your face beats compared to some of his previous work but I think the end product was worth it. 
O and his great grand father is John Coltrane.

Only 16 years old, Marcel Everett or XXYYXX is making beats on a whole new level. Ambient tones and smooth beats, his music has been amazing for my long bike rides around the city. You can find his album for free at Abstract Records. Free Album here.

Deltron 3030 / Del the Funky Homosapien

Right when you thought this was an electro blog...Deltron 3030 aka Del the Funky Homosapien will always be one of my favorite artists. Straight from my home of Oakland, California, Del is best known for being in groups such as Hieroglyphics and Souls of Mischief. His rapping is deep and has a melody no other rapper can compare to. What I like most about Del is the meaning behind his lyrics. Listen carefully and you'll be hit by his many wise words that challenge the status quo.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

This guy got it right. Orlando Higginbottom and his partner Edmund Finnis takes electronic music to a whole new level. Defined officially as dance music, in the interview above (1:08) he says,

"If we just kinda woke up tomorrow morning and there were none of these genre's, you just had your record collection in front of you and you didn't know what any of it was called or where any of it came from, it wouldn't matter, that'd be great. That'd be great and you'd probably write some amazing music and you'd love some music that you never loved before. Cause all the connotations and the weird ideas you had about whether it's cool and where it's come from and what scene it is and who wrote it and whether you've heard it before. Those would just be gone. I like that idea."

Orlando couldn't have said it better and his music truly speaks to this concept. Orlando is truly paving the road towards bringing creativity back into electronic music (let alone music in general) and pushing against the clutches of label run mainstream music.

His new album is soon to be released and I bet it'll be a masterpiece.

Right out of San Jose, California, B.Lewis puts down some very smooth music. B.Lewis uses a perfect mixture of Hip-Hop and synthesizers that shouts uniqueness. 5 albums and 1 EP to his belt, B.Lewis shows to the world he lives and breaths music. He has even collaborated with one of my favorite artists, Xperiment, which puts him at the top of my artist list. Check out his array of amazing albums at bandcamp.

Some more of that goodness.

Hey everyone, back again for post number 2. If you liked what I had last post, then you'll definitely love this; some more of that glitch sound that you all crave. Recently I've found and started to follow a group called Fractal Sky. A up and coming glitchhop crew who has had side acts with Gramatik, Big Gigantic, Prophetic Massive, Somasphere, Telepath, Zoogma, Jwail, and Peter Paul. Long story short, this guy knows his samples and he's not afraid to try new things. Check it.
