With their latest album ‘Dr. Gonzo’, they bring back the big club vibe with a bunch of heavy kick drums and random weird shit that they do best. The release follows on from their last album ‘Tons of Friends’, which seemed to get a lot of negative feedback EVEN THOUGH it wasn’t that bad. I guess when you’re at the top of the game, people just expect you to always do better than the last effort. Having said that, Dr Gonzo is what Crookers fans such as myself have been waiting.
Most of the album was already released in separate EP’s, however there are a few gems that make it worth buying the entire release.
My picks of the bunch are; That Laughing Track, Dr Gonzo’s Anthem, Springer and Carcola.
With a track that reached JunoDownload’s Top 10 Electro House chart this summer and radio airplay by Kissy Sell Out last month, Only Jack Jones of Manchester, UK, is seeing some well-deserved pay-off for his hard work! He runs two record labels as well as an affordable dance music mastering service, all while releasing music on WoNKed Records, Move To Trash Recordings, Digital Storm Records, Clubstream Records, and Shabang! Records.
I’ve opted to post the more fidgetty side of his production because it is the sickest to me… but you can also hear some very solid electro house and dubstep on his Soundcloud.
The music-sphere is occasionally graced by a talent not only sought after and loved by fans, but respected and feared by colleagues and competition. Wether you like em’ or don’t care, these acts do their thing in a style and manner that is all their own. Daft Punk, Skream, Starkey, Chromeo, Burial, Jack Beats, Flying Lotus, these are all “producers’ producers” (pardon my simple terms). They have such unique sounds that almost no matter who you are, you have got to give them props. Recently a young Los Angeles export has set up shop in the greater San Francisco area and the music he has been making across the soundscape has received almost nothing but praise from some of the biggest names.
We first ran into Supreme when he hosted a Save Sunday, but since then the boy has gone crazy. Dropping an official remix for UK dubstep icon Dream is the most recent of his accomplishments on a long roster of feats including tours in Australia and the United States (Sydney, Brisbane, Denver, San Francisco). A top charting debut EP entitled Grimey rounds off just a few of the reasons why you should keep an ear and eye out for this local badman. Catch him lurking around, leveling clubs throughout the Bay.
So, I’m a big fan of Made to Play and Zombie Disco Squad has been making quality tunes since your Mom was wearing shoulder pads. Also, being the design nerd that I am, it goes without question that I should comment on this EP art. Them vectors is really doin’ it for me!
Drawing influences from the realms of Classic House to Crunk via disco and Street music from Brazil, Zombie Disco Squad are never afraid to take the musical bull by the horns and headbutt that beast.
Sometimes this headbutting session ends in a great dance record, as is the case with Piano Man. Perhaps one of the most obvious hits the Zombies have ever delivered, this little dance floor beauty delivers some classic piano lines, a soulful vocal and their trademark percussive groove, summoned from their years spent living as savages in the Amazon rainforest.
When we last left two of our favorite musical mighty kids they could be found blowing up San Francisco venues, selling their own brand of twerked dubstep and broken beats. As we return our attention to K Theory we see a brand new monster. Boasting an even chunkier arsenal of original remixes and productions, this pair of American musicians have stacked a sizable list of proper EDM superstars they have supported in the last year. Sharing the bill with the likes of Feed Me, Avicii, Trolley Snatcha, Dirtyphonics & 12th Planet, it is no wonder the duo has a chart topping EP out on Beatport right now (Last time I checked, their single 18th Century Gangster was sitting nice & pretty at #2 on the Beatport Top 100 Glitch Hop charts). Catch up with the rowdy, bass bombardiers as they take 2012 by storm with scheduled performances alongside giants Dada Life & Nero. Expect a slew of top notch releases and remix works accompanied by the boys growing reputation for blood pumping performances.
We present two of the freshest K Theory projects, a free for all bootleg of Bay Area favorites The M Machine in company with an unreleased remix by Muffler soon to be dropped on Bass=Win Records. Listen, rinse, repost, repeat!
