Esteemed Clevage Consultants,
Everything in my life is pretty steady right now and nothing has gone terribly wrong for close to a week. This is something novel for me and it feels unreal, so I hope that most of you are going through a similar uplifting stint of good fortune. But just incase you’re not, please take these musical tokens as padding to soften all the bullshit-related blows currently being jousted at you from whatever corners of karma fucktown you may have angered; god knows I’ll be right back in your situation at some point or another.
- Signed Sincerely, The Worst Guy
Everything Flosstradamus has been producing as of late has tickled me in a way that if Loretta tickled me I’d say, “Oh ya, that’s nice…that’s the spot.” The same goes for modern Trap music production in general.
P.S. here’s some more awesome Trap music.
- Levels (Drankenstein Remix)
- Bass Cannon (Stereothieves Trap Cannon Edit)
- Why Even Try (Bloody Beetroots Remix)
- Front Back (Keys N Krates Remix)
Love him or hate him, Quentin Dupieux has one of the most sadistically brilliant minds in the world of french experimental music, and film. Whether it be a tire on a mission to kill, or a pint sized stuffed animal playing chess with William Fichtner, the bearded madman never ceases to spew creativity and this new release is but another extension of his dizzyingly irregular take on the world. I for one cant get enough of both his music (past and present) and his films, and will continually be a flat eric fanatic for as long as the man has breath in his body and a beard on his face.
The Joel is back in Toronto. The Joel is finishing up his studio renovations. The Joel is plugging everything in and tinkering around. The Joel is busy. The world is waiting.
Although I have been very attached to Oliver’s music for quite some time now, it really wasn’t until I saw U-Turn (1/2 of the duo) spin here in Toronto @ The Gladstone Hotel that their music became entrenched in every play list I create. Their funky ‘Justice-esque’ basslines and whispingly elegant synth and vocal work puts me in an unshakably good mood, especially in peak rush hour traffic. My review of said concert will be surfacing shortly, so you’ll be able to see exactly what im talking about.
P.S. more mellow happy fun time music:
To be perfectly honest im really not that impressed with Flux Pavilion’s new original release, nor am I with Dillon Francis’ Remix, which is funny as they are two of my current favourite artists and I had been anticipating this specific release for quite some time (thanks to twitter). But I guess things don’t always turn out the way you plan, so let’s just all be thankful that Jack Beats’ name was amongst those on the remix list; I don’t think I’ve ever disliked anything they’ve produced.
The Danny Byrd Remix is also quite fantastic. I’m not too sure how many of you TIT readers I’ve converted into DnB fans yet, but I do hope its more than zero, cause if not you guys have no idea what you’re missing out on (both musically and culturally).
The Buraka bregade have been slated to open for Justice and M83 here in Toronto on August 4th, and I cannot wait to see what all the fuss is about. After stumbling across the Portugese musicians via Caspa’s remix of their recent single The Hangover, I rifled through most of their discography contently but really didn’t get much of that ‘shit my pants’ feeling. However, I have been assured that their live presence is a force to be reckoned with and accents their Kuduro style of music far beyond the levels achievable through an electronic listening device.
P.S. here’s some Moombahton for y’all:
