Broodlings Live DJ Set

Go back and listen to the highlight of this month’s HUNGER event at 529 by downloading and listening to this set from Embassy Recordings duo Broodlings – complete tracklist available

Broodlings (Hunger V)A crew you have probably been sleeping on, Atlanta duo and Embassy Recordings artists Broodlings stepped out on one of their first live performances at the monthly Hunger music event at Atlanta’s 529.

Undeniably the set of the evening (respect to everybody else who played), the two worked through classic 140 bpm favorites including oft overlooked DMZ and Scuba material before ramping it up into some ridiculous footwork blends that had the crowd entranced.

Check beneath the fold for the stream / download info, and the tracklisting!

Distal – Civilization (TECCD014)

Civilization transcends what most expect from the legendary Tectonic label, with tracks that exploring a wide palette of styles, not simply BPM, and the unmistakable aesthetic of a Distal production.

Distal - Civilization (TECCD014)Distal‘s first full-length release Civilization will finally ship on the highly esteemed Tectonic Recordings label on April 30.

After my first few listens, quite simply, Civilization is a breath of fresh-air to Tectonic. Distal will be the first to cite Pinch‘s influence in his own work, however Civilization transcends what most expect from the legendary label. Tracks exploring a wide palette of styles, not simply BPM, with the unmistakable aesthetic of a Distal production. More importantly the tracks and their arrangement do feel cohesive, a craft that seems to elude many full length releases in the current wave of electronic music.

Read more and listen to previews of Distal’s Civilization LP beneath the fold.

Download: Africa Hitech at The Drake Hotel

Very excited to see that last night the crew from Africa Hitech made their recent performance from The Drake Hotel in Toronto available for download. Some of my favorite music from 2011 recorded at one of my favorite places on earth.

I assume most everybody reading this blog is well aware of Africa Hitech, the combination of Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek pushing the boundaries and bpms ever higher. I would suggest you also get to know The Drake Hotel, which I was fortunate enough to visit and stay in earlier this year. It’s a small spot with about a dozen rooms, incredible drinks and food and obviously a nightclub downstairs (The Underground) that pulls in some cutting edge talent.

Check the performance below posted in two parts, share it with a friend, and plan yourself a visit to The Drake Hotel next time you’re in Toronto!

Wheez-Ie – Keep Yer Chin Up (EMB008)

Review of Wheez-ie’s forthcoming ‘Keep Yer Chin Up’ on Embassy Recordings. Three originals plus remixes from Salva and DJ Assault. Audio inside!

Out now on Embassy Recordings
[ iTunes / Beatport / Juno ]

Embassy Recordings presents its next release from Wheez-ie, the production alias of Matt Mauldin. Based at Berklee School of Music via Houston, TX, EMB008 brings the producers penchant for fast-paced frantic rhythms to light. Bubbling drums, deep 808 bass, and carefully crafted vocals lay the foundations of his originals. “Keep Yer Chin Up” and “Barefoot Billy” with intense rhythm sections are a decidedly tamer beast than the sheer mayhem found in the release’s climactic “House Ball.”

Remixes from the legendary DJ Assault and San Francisco’s Frite Nite founder Salva offer slower groove-focused reinterpretations of Wheez-ie’s furious productions. The contrast between the originals and remixes on this release offer a unique blend that gives the release a wide appeal.

For fans of Machine Drum and Africa Hi-Tech, EMB008 will be a welcome addition for any bass-music fan’s arsenal.
