Everything I have heard from the artists that regularly participate in GruntWorthy events serves as a perfect example of what the label is trying to accomplish; great beats telling exciting stories with a keen attention to precision, production, and the finest details. Keep an eye on all of these excellent producers.

Psymbionic

Psymbionic is the Dubstep / Glitch / Psychedelic project of John Burcham, also known as Arcturian Expedition (Downtempo), hailing from Austin, TX. Influenced by the likes of Heyoka, Ooah, Vibesquad, Bassnectar, ill.gates, Mimosa, and many more, his new moniker has been steadily gaining attention and speed since it’s start in the Summer of 2009, encompassing patrons of out of state shows and festivals with glitched out beats and psychedelic, whompy bass-lines.

This mixtape, his second exclusive release mix for the BwompBeats Music Blog is a juicy mix that is “1/3 purple crunk lovestep, 1/3 glitch hop, and 1/3 dubstep by our own Psymbionic. What starts off slow and sexy soon drops you into a heavy boomer of a mix that will make you swoon and/or grab your nuts. John has been honing his style and styling his sounds since coming onboard and has definitely dialed in a good one so far. The mix has a lot of primo stuff from a lot of upcoming producers, so check this one out.” – Bwomp Beats

The mix is composed of a stellar selection of the last month of releases by all the names that matter in bass movement (glitch/dub/crunk) as well as more than a handful of exclusive unreleased tracks. Included in these exclusives is “Melting You”, an unreleased track by NastyNasty that is featured in his Lazer Soul mix as well. Download this mix ASAP, you’re in for a real treat; Psymbionic knows what sounds good, and better yet he knows how to make a good mix!

Colorado New Years Eve: IMPACT Heavy-duty lineup

If you are going to be in Colorado for New Years Eve, this is where you should be. Located in Denver at 1144 Broadway, City Hall Amphitheater just announced this epic lineup for New Years. Nit Grit, NastyNasty and Freddy Todd have all already been featured on the SubSynthesis and the rest are a whole mix of great local artists. I can personally attest to both Nit Grit and NastyNasty being amazing live performers, and I have heard that Freddy Todd absolutely destroys crowds. Impact New Years is by far the best and heaviest lineup scheduled; the only exception being if you live in Fort Collins, it could definitely be worth it to check out Michal Menert instead and save yourself a drive! See you all at New Years!

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.

Also, Danny is going to be posting a list of all the blogs he pre-released the track to. Make sure to visit the Nit Grit Facebook and bookmark all these amazing blogs. They really are the path to musical nirvana!
