S L V (Downstate & Hamacide) EP on Urban Waves

got an email from the good folk at Urban Waves Records* letting me know that Hamacide and Downstate’s “S L V” EP finally dropped. Been anticipating this one for months!

*run by the amazing Captain Weedo, who basically saved my life one time.

trap x juke x old horror movies + heavy Edgar Allen Poe vibes. do. not. sleep. on. this.

“Nothing was planned in terms of sound or aesthetics when we set about making some songs together. We simply shared small audio clips with each other, and over time, these clips became the songs on the EP. The album was made between July and September of 2012.”- S L V

Honestly this is one of the best releases to come out of China in 2012 so get over to Bandcamp and throw dem some dollars for this.

dark tracks for dark days

last week was a dark time, with the food poisoning and all..

here’s some music that got me through it.

and while we’re talking about that Lunice remix, here’s the Love Bang edit/mash-up of that one.

on a similar tip, here’s the Grandtheft edit of Crystal Castles’ “Not in Love.” Really dope, this one.

and….here we’ve got our brand new remix of Friend or Foe’s “Double Down” – a tale of debts and desperation. pretty stripped back this one, by DJ Caution and myself.

[The Super Ayi Cleaning Team gwan be at 390 Bar this Friday supporting Friend or Foe for the release of their remix album, which this track appears on - be there, you'll get a free CD at the door plus there's live sets by many of the remixers and a performance by Friend or Foe themselves.]

Finally, some dark dub/dubstep by one of my favorites – Kahn, this time working with Neek as Gorgon Sound. Love this track.
