It’s time to get back on the local music track. And there could not be a better way then with this hot new two-tack Earth Eyes EP from one of our Philly favorites, Speaker for the Dead. It’s always good to have constant reminders of how hard the Philadelphia collective Glitch Squadis killing it, and it’s impossible to not be reminded with how often these guys are putting out amazing new material. “Earth Eyes” definitely takes the cake for me here, a high-energy trapped out track with still a large amount of glitch-hop stylings and an overall unique perspective on the genre that gives it that true future bass feel we have come to love and expect from Glitch Squad. That being said, do not even think about skipping over “Escape Velocity”. And what better reason not to than that this EP is FREE like almost all of Glitch Squad’s music. Enjoy!!
So we just posted the Sonic Bloom 2013lineup and festival announcement, and among their list of incredible artists is a man that has been doing up the breakbeat game for a long time now. I am of course referring to the great ill.Gates. The San Francisco native producer has done work with many incredible producers, including the mighty Bassnectar, as well as Beats Antique, Samples, Opiuo, Datsik and plenty more. I think that list of collaborations actually gives a good representation of ill.Gates’ versatility and production prowess. He covers anything from dubstep, to glitch-hop, to straight breakbeat, hip-hop beats, and just about anything in between. He’s giving away this new “Re:Mix:Tape” completely FREE, which is truly an anomaly as the mix is packed full of fresh, bassed-out tunes.
This release has seen the light of day for a bit now, but it’s been looping periodically on my computer almost for a week now, so I feel it still warrants a post. And while some of you have already stumbled upon the new Thundercolor EP from Virginia-based production team Coyote Kisses, I am sure there are a few of you, at least, out there who will be very pleased after giving this album a listen. The style is mellow, yet far from minimal, and psychedelic in a dreamy and melodic, yet welcoming way. Comparable to artists like Seven Lions, Ghostland Observatory, andMichal Menert– I know that sounds like a confusion fusion- the group still remains far removed from anything I can say I have yet to hear. 5 out of 5 stars, this is freaking awesome.
Rekoil has to be one of my favorite young producers at this point in the game. He never has anything negative to say, a like a lot of the Firepower Recordscrew, remains pretty reserved. But when it comes to producing, he sure knows how to shatter some bass. This is his remix of “Fully Blown”, originally by Firepower head Datsik. Some of you may have already heard this track, but this is a fresh mix down from Rekoil with some better sound quality and a few adjustments. Plus it comes with a FREE download. Enjoy!
Two huge Firepower Recordshere have collaborated on this brand new extremely filthy- and yes, extremely funny- track. It’s the homies Getter and MUST DIE!, both of which it’s no secret that we’re big fans of here at Funkadelphia. Finally Philadelphia will have the pleasure of hosting the great Getter at SoundGarden Hall on Thursday, June 7th, and oh man am I excited for the filth fest he’s going to deliver. Don’t expect the most quality tune here, but definitely still expect some good laughs and some good whomps, and a good ol’ FREE download!!
Anyone else feeling mellow on this beautiful Summer night? Anyone else trying to get their funky groove on? Well let me tell you, LabRat knows the feeling. The Santa Cruz producer just dropped this fresh new glitch-hop track on as a little thank you leading up to the release of his new Strange Nights EP. If you haven’t already noticed, the glitch-hop scene is making some serious moves in the bass and EDM world, and we’re all about it. I hope you guys are with us here, because this production shows off some serious talent. Oh, did we mention it’s FREE!? Enjoy!
Now we can’t go spreading the love to all our Philadelphia fans without sharing some good old fashioned local Philadelphia music. So allow us to take over your ear drums for the next 17 minutes with this insane mix from local DJ and producer DigitalNature. Still very new to the scene, DigitialNature is showing he means nothing but business. With a slew of impressive original production tracks up on his Soundcloud, he certainly demonstrates his knowledge in the production booth. But this mix also shows off an incredible ability to throw together gnarly track after gnarly track, into a bass-ridden mix that’ll leave you begging for more. The even better news is that it’s all yours, totally FREE, courtesy of DigitalNature!
It’s been a while since we’ve had something new to share with you guys from Northeast producer Drop Goblin, but this new release is sure to satisfy your bass craving. Drop Goblin has been our radar for quite some time now and it’s great to see him starting to get some serious recognition. The Gate EP was released through Ultragore Records, who have housed plenty of releases from many of our favorite filthy artists, including J.Rabbit, Mantisand plenty more. The album’ demonstrates strong influences from dubstep, moombahcore, and yes, metal. Enough’s been said; get those speakers turned up and the music blastin’!
This right here, is far from your typical daily dose of bass. It’s more like a daily overdose. Now, let me say: where my metal heads at? Zardonic is an intense bass producer very realistically probably blows out a few windows in his house/apartment every time he’s working on a new track. “Intense” does not even begin to describe this track, but hey, if you like it really filthy, then you probably couldn’t be happier with this one. In announcing his new upcoming remix album, Far Beyond Bass – The Vulgar Remixes, Zardonic decided to drop a FREE new track on us to get us hyped. Well it worked.
Oh man is it a beautiful day for music. Let’s take a break from the heavy, cause I’ve got some real nice funky tunes for you guys here. I’m sure many of you already know this, but Philadelphia is actually the home of talented producer The Polish Ambassador. He’s been throwing down groovy sets here in The City of Brotherly Love for years now, and I think I can speak for most people when I say it’s good to see him starting to get some serious national and global recognition. His newest album, Ecozoic, was released just a few days ago and features a humongous roster of new grooves. It’s actually a double album, so there’s plenty to choose from, and plenty of time to pass while jamming out to these funky tunes. Not to mention, TPA is actually being generous enough to give away the album at the “name your price” album. So if you’re broke, that means you can snag it for FREE; but hey, show some love for your local talent and give this man the support he deserves! Enjoy!
