Gosteffects - Kick the Bass

FULL POST

Months ago I had posted a album preview that really caught my attention. Drowned in a sea of 1:30 ‘teasers’ of drops of songs, I found myself unable to stop hitting repeat on the six minute minimix. Finally after weeks of waiting (and after bringing him out in person to Santa Cruz, where he KILLED Motiv) we have the Kick The Bass EP.

The album is great, throughout it’s loaded with this pulsing, tribal/noise vibe which really comes through on “Kick the Bass” and “Tear the Club Up”. “House of God” was released as a free download a bit ago, and it’s still banging in my sets, haunting vocals strewn over what sounds like locusts eating your local pastor, I can’t get enough of this stuff. “yeah” is his classic electro offering, which comes through with bright energy and rounds out a nicley put together and well-produced EP. He’s been getting a lot of attention here as well as Europe, and has big plans for 2012. Grab the FREE tracks below and pick up the rest of the album, and turn up the bass.

I rarely get this excited over “buzzy” shit, but I’m all about Team Banks right now. She’s just the walking, spittin’, flowy little k-word that we need right now. What do you kids think? Over the top wannabe gangsta shit? Or a rough-n-tumble, not-giving a fuck, let’s see how many forties we can kill before its noon shit? I choose the latter. Day 2 of Coachella. You already know.

Young L.A. based label BODY HIGH has been making some big noise the past few weeks. Collectively run by Trouble & Bass’ California attaché Samo Sound Boy and Jerome from the killer duo known as LOL Boys, these guys pulled a fast one and are releasing a huge new 5-track ep from Todd Edwards.

A name instantly identifiable by keen U.K.G. heads and snobs, Mr. Edwards is known for his ability to tie down a pretty garage roll with cut-up religious themed vocals and quick, thunderous builds; he’s nothing short of THE drive behind the emergence of Garage music in the U.S. in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. When combined with a label known for their Bass and ghetto-dancehall grooves, the result is ‘Shall Go’, a release dripping with a raw, modern take of a time when dance music was sweeter.

The tracks “Hold the Faith” and “Echos of the Past” are his gentle, complex garage beats offered on the album, and “The Stranger” is a reversion into his craft of layering lyrics into an inspiring message(he’s a devout Christian). Yet it’s the title-track and “This Generation” that really reach out. Both feature huge percussion, the former a stomping, inspirational anthem, the latter a uniquely massive drumline banger that features a sample from “Pass the Dutchie”. Stream the entire album below for free, and get your clickers ready, this bad boy drops tomorrow, keep an eye on his Soundcloud and Facebook.

Yes the rumors are substantiated, you’ve been wondering for weeks and well, it’s true, I’m back to C+A+D! Glad to be back after playing a few cool shows and booking some of my favorite artists here in Santa Cruz, but truth be told I love sharing my music too much, and glad to be back at it. Without further ado……..here’s the music.

If you’re not caught up with this guy or his bromantical angry-techno counterpart Gesaffelstein, get out from that rock homie. These guys owned Hard Cruise together, and their stateside tour stop in S.F. was one of the best sets I’ve seen. Ever.
Gesaffelstein – Viol (Brodinski Remix)

Can’t stop playing this noise maker from Italian up and comer Supabeatz. I get asked what this track is after I play it out more than any other, keep up with him and his pal Keith, they often team up with absolute bangers to offer.
The 2 Bears – Work (Supabeatz Remix)

This E.P. was the second release from Lucky Beard Records, started by Phra of Crookers. Honestly slept on this remix, but this is just the jam right now.
Donovans & Maelstrom – I Need (Cookie Snap Remix)

Lastly this comes from the latest offering of the always eclectic Mumbai Science. This is their second EP in their ‘Unified Theory’ trilogy, with the third EP set to come out in early March. Keeps your ears open for that, and grab this sweet, dancy groove in the mean time.
Mumbai Science – Reality

Got some cool stuff lined up for the next few weeks guys. As always, buy the music and wear good headphones!

This weekend I got a very special chance to see one of my favorite producers of all time, Style of Eye, come to town and destroy Motiv here in Santa Cruz. He played the main SF weekly at EPR the night before, and went onto Control at Avalon in Hollywood and to Voyeur in San Diego the next two nights, and I was incredibly stoked to not have to make the drive to any of those places, but instead got to see him in front of 200 other like minded nut-jobs and witnessed him bang the fuck out on 3 cdj’s (yes, he made extensive use of all three). It’s no secret that I have a musical boner for this guy, his Wet/Dry e.p. totally brought me back to life and it’s been in my sets for days now, and his track ‘We Are Boys’ has garnered support from some of the biggest dj’s in the world. I love this guy not only because he’s basically Jesus for Tech House (and a super friendly dude, bonus points), but his track output is unlike any other dj anywhere, both in varied styles and overall quantity. Take a look at my past Thursday…

He dropped a track that’s coming out on Crookers’ new album that they collaborated together on, a bit goofy, a bit creepy, all fun :) Here’s a rip from Tiesto’s latest club life where it was featured.

I’m just a damn fan of this guy. The playful style, immaculate production, and the sheer talent he possesses make him one of the best in the biz says I. If you so choose to head over to his beatport your ears will thank you.

Wear good headphones, and support the music!

Loving me some Gooffee right now. I was first turned onto them by a track of their’s called “Flow” that was remixed by Torro Torro. Since then, I’ve been too excited about these guys. They’re atitude about their music, the swanky tunes, and the the gooffee-ness. Fortunately enough I got to shoot then a few questions online, and they came back with this lil guy. Enjoy!

Pretty rad guys. They’re new e.p. just came out, and it’s 100% free. Its got some killer moombahton and electro, and a few things I’m having trouble quantifying…..it’s all worth a dl tho, so hit that download button like there’s no tomorrow.

Towards the end of the interview they talk about this video, best music vid I’ve seen in a long time, honestly.
