The electronic music and hip hop blog Truants recently released their second compilation of original music, and the below track is exemplary of their heavy, refined interests. On Riffs‘ “Threadbare,” 808s ricochet around plastic jugs over a driving house beat, low end loops, and rude boy vocal clips. Like the rest of compilation, it’s available as a free 192, but if you desire the full 320 or WAV, you gotta drop €3.99. It’s for a cause though – the profits go to Save Darfur up until Feb. Immy, cofounder of Truants, used to do great work for us here at Mixpak and continues to do so over there. (Art by Olly Gibbs.)
This is that dirty dirty. That Dirty South… of France. Clapper Lark comes with a huge beat, bouncing high up into dark matter, while getting low in the gutter to get that money. Recorded deep underground amongst chanting cult members, pulsating synths escalate in intensity and speed, creating a sense of urgency. The track is free, but they’ve got an upcoming EP on Radio Los Santos. Like a sandwich artist stackin bread, green, guacamole, and cheese…
This big Doc Daneeka remix of Dutch producer Presk has been knocking around for a good couple of months but finally saw a release on Monday for the first release on Amsterdam based label, Audio Culture.
In honour of Poirier’s debut EP for Mixpak, Soca Road, dropping on the 17th January, the Montreal producer has given us a free slice of soca to prepare your ears. ‘Where Yuh From’ by Trini outfit Kes The Band was already a synthed-out party track but Poirier flips it into a hyper-energetic, bass-bin driven tune bound to test your wag-raving abilities.
Download it below and watch out for more Soca Road updates soon.
