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!

Gladkill

“Siberian born, New York raised producer and musician Boris G has been writing and performing as Gladkill since 2007. Drawing from years of musical experimenting with many genres and instruments, Gladkill combines several elements of electronic music to craft his signature sound. Gladkill can best be described as a combination of melodic IDM hip hop fused with bass-heavy rhythms reminiscent of the “Acid Crunk” and Dubstep sound. Gladkill has been seen performing with such Electronic acts as R/D, Eprom, Mux Mool, Martyparty, Mimosa, Lazer Sword, and others. “Everything inspires me. Silence is my canvas. Follow, listen, enjoy, share.”” – Boris Gladkill

In anticipation of the release of the Ghostwork Mixtape, Gladkill released a Ghostwork Promo Mix, which is absolute fire. Good on the dance floor, good for chilling. If you like it swing by and pick up the album, the quality of the downloads is so much higher and if you appreciate awesome bass coupled with beautiful melodies, Gladkill is for you. Any upcoming artist with the support of R/D is sure to be amazing, but Gladkill doesn’t need the support to prove his mettle… Yet another great producer whose musical talent speaks for itself.

R/D

Yet another DJ out of musical California, Los Angeles-based producer R/D has been releasing some genre-defining Glitch-Hop over the last year.

Again demonstrating that production experience is really what counts, R/D has been on the DJ scene since 1999, and that’s certainly not whole story. In 2006 R/D moved in with his friends, who we all know as the Glitchmob. Living with eDit and Ooah certainly pushed him the Glitchy, melodic direction that he has taken today.

All of his material is really quite original, but if you really want a glimpse at some of his best, check out his song Faces of God, the title track off his new EP. It features vocals by Nadine Risha, and is one of the more innovative songs released in the genre recently. It starts with an eerie vocal chant, slowly progressing into a melodic, mid-tempo glitch anthem. Don’t be turned off by the introduction vocals, the way he manages to incorporate them into the song is really part of what makes it so awesome.
