R/D: Forward Slash Mixtape

As I have said in my previous R/D Feature, R/D is someone who never releases anything short of brilliant. His most recent EP, Faces of God, is an absolute work of art. He has been doing his thing for over a decade, and at this point he is damn good at it. As of today, R/D has announced that a new album is in the works, and has released an epic mixtape to give us a taste of what is to come.

Forward Slash does everything that a good mixtape should. It highlights favorites by R/D, gives the listener an exclusive taste of 2 unreleased tracks from the upcoming album, and skillfully remixes old classics into a stellar new composition. The new Forward Slash 2010 Mixtape is available for free in all file-formats at the R/D BandCamp and is an absolute MUST-DOWNLOAD for those fans of the legendary R/D; get it while it’s HOT!

NastyNasty – Special You

One of our most frequently featured artists, Jasper aka NastyNasty has released yet another batch of delicious tracks. In order to thank his fans for all their support contributing to the recent success of his tour, as well as the SoundCloud topping victory of his track Apologies, NastyNasty is giving away this 2 track set for free.

Special You is composed of two songs, Work Visa VIP and the Better Off Alone VIP. Both of these tracks are VIP versions of some of NastyNasty’s best early material, freshly remixed and ready to play. The new version of Work Visa is one of my favorite songs by NastyNasty so far, and Better Off Alone is definitly worth the download as well.

Realistically, everything released by NastyNasty is bound to be good. He understands the texture and quality of a bassline in a way no one else does, and his production quality is always crisp and perfect. NastyNasty is certainly one of the best, most outspoken producers on the scene today. Follow this guy on SoundCloud if you haven’t already!

Nit Grit – This Old Heart

Danny Beall aka Nit Grit, King of SoundCloud, Lord of Lazers, has finally seen fit to release another track into the multitudes. However, in order to combat his writers block, Danny has decided to try something new and exciting. Not only is he breaking away from his typical sound, he is breaking away from he typical method of release by which artists expose their songs. Jasper aka NastyNasty recently released a commentary to the public in which he emphasized the importance of Blogs as the primary form of introducing electronic music to the masses. Nit Grit is pioneering a scheme in which his new track is released exclusively through the Blogs he supports in order to draw attention to the community surrounding his music. We should all give Danny credit for being one of the most down-to-earth, honest artists on the scene right now. You can be sure when listening to any of his tracks, particularly this new one, that Danny is pouring his heart and soul into every synth, every melody, every beat, every measure.

I can’t really think of how to explain this track other than to say that it would be right at home on NastyNasty’s Lazer Soul mix. It has the signature NiT Grit lasers and beautifully orchestrated melodies, but their is a new emotive dimension that Danny has been progressively approaching. The era of the dance-hit is ending, and the dawn of musical honesty in the electronic genre is finally being born. Show Danny some love and grab his newest track, it is an absolute killer.

Beats Antique

“Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electonica and world roots music comes a masterful merge of modern technology, live instrumentation and seductive performance, built of brass bands and glitch, string quartets and dubstep: the musical trio Beats Antique.

Since the group’s inception from the eclectic underground of San Francisco’s performance art scene, Beats Antique has been notorious for making it nearly impossible to sit still. They meld their mediums as attentively as they fuse the cultures that inspire their sound. All self produced and composed, the trio creates a unique collage: an animalistic, raw musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic, while still maintaining an allegiance to the muses of class and beauty.” – Beats Antique Bio-Page

So far in over three years of creating amazing music Beats Antique has released 3 albums and a pair of EPs. The newest Album„ Blind Threshold, just came out a few weeks ago and is available through the Beats Antique BandCamp. “Notable features of the new release include vaporous violins and Danny Elfman-esque dementia; glitchy, laser-guided harmonica provided by Blues Traveler frontman John Popper; and 2 very different vocal tracks that range between restless pop hooks and vibrant Eastern European dance loops. All wrapped into an intricate collection of heavy beats and sub bass.”

Beats Antique also just released two Halloween/Dia De Los Muertos tracks, which can be downloaded now for free!

Blind Dreams: Stephan Jacobs & +Verb

Yet another fresh new track by Stephan Jacobs, this time in his first collaboration with american producer +Verb. “Blind Dreams” is an excellent blend of dark melodies, evil-sounding synths, and an skull-throbbing drone bass.
