Brooklyn Bass 045: Velcro March 2014 Podcast

 Velcro is a LA-based house duo consisting of Kevin Ross and Enrique Martinez. The project was born in the summer of 2012, shortly after an introduction at a nightclub in Hollywood. Little did the producers know upon meeting that their combined creativity and tastes would spawn a new beginning for...

Golden Donna - II [SILK-064]

Golden Donna – II [SILK-064]

Golden Donna has offered up a wide range of music in the past few years. Gloaming Thirst is perfect horror film scoring, complete with maniacal synth spin-outs and intense drums, and releases like Pour Resnaís show a more introspective but equally exploratory side, leaving the kits aside in favor of synth-laden soundscapes. And with II, Donna again refocuses...

Cannot go wrong with that combo of labels) to release these two gems on wax. Both sides contain beautiful...

After a short hiatus (moving always sucks with records), our semi weekly vinyl reviews are back! Without further adieu… Jay Daniel – Karmatic Equations EP [WOJD01] Jay’s Wild Oats debut dropped last week and it’s fantastic from start to finish. The first two sides offer up some great rolling pieces of detroit house. Subdued and...
Machine Girl - WLFGRL [DREDLP01]

Machine Girl – WLFGRL [DREDLP01]

  London’s Dred Collective has been putting out a broad spectrum of high-quality electronic music for about a year, and although they’ve paid close attention to UK beatsmiths, they haven’t been shy of New York-based producers. They’ve shared some of Koetry’s slow, bassy jams. They released Beatslave’s uptempo, masterfully-sampled Delirious Hermit Studies EP. And, of course,...
Thomas White - Killah [HYPR028]

Thomas White – Killah [HYPR028]

Hyperboloid has been holding down what they call “vaporbass” for quite some time. The look and feel of Thomas White‘s Killah EP immediately embodies this. The artwork, made by label boss Pixelord, carries many of the idiosyncrasies you’d find in vaporwave: an overtly photoshopped, bright, virtual-3D rendering of our world, all held within a frame...
Brooklyn Bass 044: Malandro February 2014 Podcast

Brooklyn Bass 044: Malandro February 2014 Podcast

MALANDRO: You will find him in seedy, pitch-black discotecas at night and on pristine, white beaches at sunrise. An unsolved mystery of tropical rhythm and pulsing synthesizers. A casual whirlwind of uncut ecstasy and effortless cool. A nocturnal master of dancefloor intrigue and international beats. MALANDRO: What secrets lie behind those sunglasses? Islands from Manhattan...
Kenny Dixon Jr. (aka Moodymann) : Moodymann

Kenny Dixon Jr. (aka Moodymann) : Moodymann

  Kenny Dixon (aka Moodymann) is back with his 4th full length as Dixon and 11th as Moodymann as a whole. He’s a major part of the detroit techno/deep house scene in case you’re unaware of him and his music. This full length is everything you’d expect for this legend. It’s deep, sexy, soulful, groove...
Tripletrain - Just For Decoration, Pts. 1 & 2

Tripletrain – Just For Decoration, Pts. 1 & 2

One of the biggest footwork releases of last year was DJ Rashad‘s full-length, Double Cup. Given the explosion of footwork through the internet and around the world, it was perfect timing on Rashad’s part to set a precedent for what a good footwork album should be. And with the help of Hyperdub, his voice was heard....

Brooklyn Bass 043: M.ono January 2014 Podcast

  Joining us for the tail end of January, Rose Records’ M.ono lays down a solid hour of moody transcendental house music. With the truck loads of snow getting dumped on Brooklyn outside, it’s a warm and friendly hello to us from Leipzig, Germany. Occasionally working with his friend Luvless, this producer’s discography keeps growing...
Principal Dean - Get Done EP [LR012]

Principal Dean – Get Done EP [LR012]

In the past week, Principal Dean has released not one, but two EPs, Jack Stars (a free release on Cosmonostro) and this EP, Get Done (Loveless Records). Both EPs are definitely worth checking out. His Get Done EP currently has my attention, with its host of remixers that take on Dean’s two originals for this EP, “Get...

Brooklyn Bass 042: Get Down Edits & isodisco (Live at Shortts Terrace) January 2014 Podcast

  This week’s mix comes all the way from Shortt’s Terrace in Waterford, Ireland where back in November ’13, monthly residents Daz Dalton & Martin Roche (Get Down Edits) had it out in a b2b session with Belfast’s Mark Whyte (isodisco) that was worthy of any Disco edit fan’s appreciation. With a busy schedule, Daz...
Still Weavens - GREATAMERICAN PIZZAHEIST

Still Weavens – GREATAMERICAN PIZZAHEIST

  Still Weavens has had an incredible run of EP releases in 2012 and 2013, and although GREATAMERICANPIZZAHEIST marks his first release of 2014, it’s likely this won’t be his last for the year. At five tracks, GREATAMERICANPIZZAHEIST‘s beats are relentlessly funky and delicious, and those fifteen minutes fly by so quickly, with almost no...
