Ben Samples: Choose Your Own Adventure LP

Ben Samples is one of the staples discussed when throwing around names in the glitch-hop and midtempo genre of music. His unique sound design and bass lines have such a distinct sound that he has helped evolve the direction of where the music is today. Samples has matured his sound over recent years and help his local area of Denver/Boulder Colorado become one of the Mecca’s for bass music. His duo act with Greg Fisk, Fresh2Death, has toured all over the States and considered one of the best live shows around featuring live remixes. His energy, skill, and talent is unmatched when he steps behind the controls, it’s truly a performance more than anything. Choose You Own Adventure is Samples new album released by Made in Glitch. The title is baed on choose-your-own adventure children’s book series that became popular in 80s and 90s where you chose your own destiny. This 15 track release is just that, an adventure into the mind and world of a legendary bass warrior battling through the life of a rockstar. The album has chapters that bring a familiar nostalgic feel and others that take us on entirely new trip into new dimensions. You will never know what is around the corner but it’s one hell of a ride. Throw the album on shuffle and see how long you survive.” – AfroMonk

In an era where most artists simply churn out singles as fast as they can and then compile them together into EP’s, it is always a pleasant surprise to see an artist spend the time to put together a cohesive concept album. That is exactly what Samples has done for us with his Choose Your Own Adventure EP. Pick your adventure and enjoy the ride!

Ali Berger aka The Woof

“Ali Berger is a producer and DJ from Princeton, NJ. His music is sometimes chilled out, sometimes heavy, but always glitchy, electronic, and above all, funky. His live shows incorporate on-the-fly mashups and remixes of music ranging from dubstep to glitch-hop to breakbeat, plus versions of his own tunes re-arranged live and cut together with other tracks. You can catch him rocking shows around New Jersey and Boston, and his first EP, Departures, dropped for free on June 1st, 2010.” – Ali Berger

Today I had the pleasure to meet upcoming DJ/Producer Ali Berger aka The Woof. I was looking for some old releases by +Verb and Ali was the person who ended up helping me out. He notified me that he would be playing tomorrow on BASSTREAM RADIO on GLITCH.FM.

He also directed me to a mix of his from a previous radio show. You should all give it a listen!

An-Ten-Nae

An*Ten*Nae is one of San Francisco’s most sought after DJs and live performers. He has taken the art of live remixing to new heights with his own customized setup, that bends genres in ways seldom heard. This sound is called Acid Crunk, and there are no rules, no restraints in its quest for a pure sound that is not Homogenized. 2010 also sees the birth of An*Ten*Nae “The Live Experience”, featuring an audio visual barrage including live drums and synths combined with dramatic theatrical and visual stimulation. Welcome to the future, and no it wont be televised.” – AN-TEN-NAE  SoundCloud

In the recent past An-Ten-Nae has put out two new albums, their original/remix album Acid Crunk EP 7, and of course the well-publicized exclusive compilation album Acid Crunk Volume 3. Both of these albums are well worth the purchase, and if the total album cost is too much, you can always get the individual tracks that really strike a chord with you. I’d be more than happy to reccomend a few favorites: Priceless, Get The Lectroid, and Funkin Lovely. The whole album is great though and really does a wonderful job giving an overview of who is rocking the scene at the moment. Yet another job well done by Muti Music superstar An-Ten-Nae.

Acid Crunk Volume 3:

  • Soom T & Disrupt – Dirty Money (An-ten-nae Remix)
  • Professor Nalepa vs It’s Not Over Quebec – Unrest
  • Thriftworks – Get The Lectroid (Rook Remix)  **(Great Track)
  • Knight Riderz – Turn It Up
  • Marty Party – Sassy
  • An-ten-nae – So High
  • Lorn – Toilet
  • Lunice – Solution
  • Love & Light – Funkin Lovely  (GREAT track)
  • Blunt Instrument – Battle Toad
  • Mimosa – Customs
  • Sidecar Tommy – Bump Box
  • Random Rab – The Desert Flux
  • Opiuo & Jay Wikid – Panty Slingshot
  • NastyNasty – Priceless    *** Possibly favorite song on the album
  • FuzZ – Doom

Also, check out the AN-TEN-NAE  SoundCloud for lots of free downloads. His newest free track is his remix of MIA’s “Steppin Up”, which is part of Acid Crunk EP7, give it a listen  and if you like it swing by and pick up the album!
