Mastah Syphe – “BullRider”

Saif Bari is the dude behind this great new experimental Electronic EP and he sent me some info about it via Sound Colour Vibration and here’s what they say:

San Diego’s Liquid Geometry collective has officially launched the new imprint of theirs with the release of a digital ep by Mastah Syphe called BullRider. Heavily steeped in the modern electronic sound that you can find spread across labels such as Alpha Pup, Tru Thoughts, Ubiquity, Warp, Ninja Tune, Brainfeeder and manys, Mastah Syphe’s production style is part dreamy and part neck breaking grooves that retain a sense of diversity that separates it from any artist on the labels mentioned. It’s a synthetic yet very exploratory sound and something I can’t get enough of.

BullRider comprises four original works from Mastah Syphe along with four accompanying remixes from different producers who are all expanding their awareness rapidly in their respective worlds. Starting with the albums title track, the beats come at you with full energy and an exotic styling of synth and percussion makes this a really different sound. Intricate synthesizer runs dash back and forth around pure 808 bass tones and minimal and broken sample cuts. If you have heard the new Virtual Boy record on Alpha Pup, you can expect that same type of heavyily intricate synthesizer work on BullRider. Every track from Mastah Syphe on the BullRider ep has that experimental electronic sound that pushes forward in motion and doesn’t drift into pointlessness, something perfect for the dance floor or with headphones.

The remix half of the album feels just as focused, energetic and synthetically magnificent in tone. Liquid Geometry’s very own Sleeve turns out my favorite remix of the record on the track ‘Cheese Cake’. Pulling the track towards dubstep rhythmically and something outer-worldly tonally, there is a translucence in the samples, synth and other sounds you can hear rising out of the frenetic nature of the percussive end. Every song and remix emits it’s own unique identity, something that made me love the record a lot. This is the first of many name your own price releases from the Liquid Geometry crew and is one we feel that is a perfect start for the collective.

[MOOMBAHTON EXCLUSIVE] DJ B-TIPS MIX & EDITS part 1

YESSSSSSSS, sometimes we get some special stuff handed to us on a silver platter. Like this double hitter by BOSTON’s DJ B-TIPS! Today you’ll get an interview and one hell of an awesome mix, and then tomorrow he’ll ALSO give you the edits he made for that mix as a free download. Get your moombah on guys!

In his own words: The idea was that I’m releasing a mix which I made over 30 edits for and would also like to release that also as a pack (probably around 150 MB, might trim some depending on what the person publishing thinks). They are mostly moombahton, but also electro, slow electro, and the like….

Well thanks mate! here’s part one, the interview (some of these questions are nicked of course from my homie UMB’s MOOMBAHTONISTA SERIES and the mixxxxxx!

What was the first Moombah track you heard and how did it make you feel?

It was the Dave Nada Riverside remix. It made me pretty uncomfortable at first, the song, the genre, and the idea. It reminds me of how hard it was for me to relate to “Champagne Supernova” the first time I heard it on the radio in Michigan. New forms have always met with contention locally as well as globally. Resisting change is as human as wearing clothes or answering interview questions. There was a lot of shit going around but some of the tunes were funky and honestly I just kept getting sent music that had that word “Moombahton” in the title. Eventually I realized the enormity of my discovery and started to make some tunes of my own.

What was the first Moombah track you made & when did you make it?

I quit my job in May of 2011 to make music fulltime with a wünderkind producer from Miami named Longarms as “Tranquilizerz”. We made an EP called Jaguar Milk that had a couple of moombahton tracks but the first one we released was called “Boombahclap.” I wouldn’t say it was a game changer, but there was something magical about being involved from the near beginning, of which we were acutely cognizant. Longarms and I still work together, but independently. He makes super deep and funky electro in NYC. The first song on the mix is an exclusive from him and will be featured on his E.P. called Laundry coming out this summer.

How is the Moombahton scene in Boston?

Electronic music in Boston is crazy! There’s a band called Wobblesauce that I featured on the mix with a great Wednesday night, and E-Marce (Throwed) has done some huge things for the scene on Tuesdays. The big thing about moving to Boston from Pittsburgh is that there are always great shows here in The Hub on weekends. It’s really hard to throw a Friday weekly and compete with Dillon Francis one week and Big Freedia the next. Still I think moombahton might be bigger in Pittsburgh. Cucitroa does Get Weird there, which absolutely kills, and RSK is known for dubstep production, but also has a Tuesday (in the Burgh) that tends to feature global and forward-thinking bass music.

What is your favorite track right now?

Just looking at the “Ike, Robot” tracklist (exclusive for Generation Bass) you can tell hip-hop and house are always going to be a part of the conversation. I believe moombahton can be the bridge (not just BPM wise) connecting these two often-disparate worlds. Going back to the first question, artistic expression is painful, and aesthetic appreciation is arduous. As a dj I challenge myself to stop thinking in terms of genre or BPM and start thinking about moods, harmonies, and sounds. I guess IDGAFOS. That song doesn’t get old because it’s instrumental and yet it has a strong voice because of Dillon’s unique sounds and rhythms.

Who are your all-time favorite producers?

I love how the drum and bass producers are coming over to electro now. I included the Knife Fight and Feed Me tracks acutely aware of this shift. Producers changing genres to follow what’s popular but keeping their distinct sound seems like a very natural and healthy thing to me. Is there really anybody out there doing ONLY moombahton? It would be like talking about hip-hop sampling without mentioning jazz. I’d say Dillon Francis, Munchi, Nada, A-Mac, Ayres, Diplo, and Audio 1. Also Bonics is a dude that has made some unreal moombahton remixes (Party on 5th ave remix, don’t call me baby remix) that are ALWAYS in my sets when I play out. There’s no substitute for a good ear, attention to detail, and patience.

How do you see the future for the Moombahton scene?

I wouldn’t invite you to dinner and serve you just cheese and crackers. Moombahton is like cheese and crackers and lots of wine. I might give you dubstep for your antipasto. Hip Hop and House are still the Steak and Lobster though!

Now check out the mix dude…:

GENERATION CHILL : KATE BUSH IN ROM DOS STYLEE

Rom Dos is an experimental Electronic producer from LA who first came to my attention via Puzzle’s brilliant “Synaptic City” mixtape, which I posted here a few weeks back.

Not much is known about this dude apart from what I’ve said above but he’s created one of the most beautiful and original covers of the classic track “Running Up That Hill” by the ever beautiful Kate Bush.

This is a real gem!

Sorry downloads ran out but some of his other tracks are still available for free.

Sexxy Saturday Cumbia – I Don’t Know About Cricket But I Love Reggae

Sometimes in order to get my creative writing juices flowing I’ll consume substances. Most of the time these substances consist of caffeine and sugar products which I feel is best because although it’s not necessarily good for my health it’s good for my brain and I can shake off the affects in a short matter of time. The other substance one might find me consuming from time to time is a glass of wine normally with the limit of one additional refill. I try not to go that route because I wish not to fall victim to the reliance or possible superstition of alcohol consumption in order to write well. Many writers have fallen down this dark path and I wish not to be one of them. However a couple of glasses shouldn’t hurt much. This is the thought anyway, but what happens on occasion is when I am writing I don’t pay much attention to the amount I consume especially when I get into a rhythmic flow. This was the case last night. It was just supposed to be a limit of two glasses but before I knew it the bottle of wine was empty and I was, well, simply inebriated (a more realistic word would be trashed).

I can say my colorful prose that came from the inebriation turned out rather well but I’ve been paying the price all day today. Now as I sit down to write this post I do so with an air of professionalism as I’m dedicated and committed to posting one of these a week and have been doing so for forty-seven weeks straight now (or is it forty-eight? Doesn’t matter my point is the same). So I come to you dear readers as a hung over mess and with that said don’t let my physical state get in the way of my selection of cumbia this week. I like all prior weeks collected tracks since my last post, this being my system.

First I’ll start off with my friend Nopalero Phunq. I meant to post his new cumbia mix last week but it slipped my mind because it was in a folder on my other computer. I regretted not posting it but I made sure to post it this week. This is a seriously beautifully elegant mix of cumbia he compiled. If you listen closely you’ll even hear one of mine. Over all this mix is my kind of style. It’s ethereal, romantic and simply wonderful.

Paris resident Rafael Aragon is back in cumbia mode. I’m very fortunate that he is because he brings such a unique sound to cumbia. He has a distinctive bass sound that is entirely his own.

Keeping with the cumbia dub/reggae vibes here is a special cumbia from the land of the rising sun. Japanese cumbia DJ’s and producers are hot right now. Here is an example of such a production.

Onto some dope cumbia now I bring you a bit of Alto Guiso’s. I think the mix of flutes with cumbia digitalness make for a very interesting original sound. I’m going to share the set actually.

Sadly much to my dislike Turbo Sonidero Futuristico stopped producing his tumbia of the week series but at least he keeps working on new stuff. Here is the unique flavor of his sounds with two remixes.

Oh here’s a cool treat from Los Chicos Altos’ Maximillian Becker. While he was busy getting married recently in Lima, Peru he managed to meet up with some of our great cumbieros down there and rocked a set. Here is his live set recorded on that night. (A side note; I don’t like cricket, I don’t love it either, I just don’t know anything about it really. No offense to cricket players).

SEXXXY TOM JONES : THE MAN WITH BASS IN HIS BALLS

Even I can’t resist Sir Tom Jones, he got Bass in his Balls and he put some Bass in mine too, made me a man!

PR:

Tom Jones follows the announcement of the May release of his eagerly awaited new album ‘Spirit In The Room’ with news of a new AA sided single ‘Hit Or Miss’/‘Bad As Me’ on 14th May through Island Records. Hit Or Miss will be available to download from I tunes on Saturday 28th April ahead of the May 14th Impact date.

The follow-up to the collection of songs that comprised the acclaimed ‘Praise & Blame’  album in 2010 sees producer/guitarist Ethan Johns, Tom and a small band of specialist players delving deep into the essence of popular song. The resultant ‘Spirit In The Room’ marks another landmark development in Tom’s recorded legacy as he continues to explore his artistic landscape.

The single, a version of Odetta’s ‘Hit Or Miss’, sees Tom bringing the song to life with an engaging  down-home country vibe whilst producer/guitarist  Ethan Johns, accompanied  by Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa on percussion, Richard Causon on piano and Sam Dixon on bass support with a delightful musical setting redolent of sunny summer festival days.

On the flip side is ‘Bad As Me’, a colourful Tom Waits composition that Sir Tom delivers with a  maniacal cackle that freely expresses the chaos within. Also accompanied by  Johns and Causon, this makes a double edged single that gives a glimpse into the depth and range of the forthcoming album.

Tom Jones has confirmed an exclusive live appearance early this summer with a show that will include songs from both ‘Praise & Blame’ and ‘Spirit In The Room’ at this year’s BluesFest London, held at the Hammersmith Apollo on luly 1st .

*  *  *  *  *

‘Hit Or Miss’/’Bad As Me’ –  is released on 14th May  through Island Records

‘Spirit In The Room’  – is released on 21st May through Island Records

Ezekiel – Drop ur ass

Unbelievable new video and track by Ezekiel who might be better know here as partner of Dr Ruddz, remember?

We use to blog him all of the time man when he did some crazy things in the past like THIS!

He has just gone next level with this though!!!

THE MOOMBAHTONISTA – MENDEZ

The sixth in the Moombahtonista series and I think Frank Mendez will be absolutely delighted to be No.6!!!!

Previously we have had:

Jorge Melo

ETC! ETC!

Heartbreak

Munchi

Doc Adam

Don’t fret, there’s loads more to come including some of the big names missing from this line-up thus far.

You should know the score by now:

-An Intro
-Brief Q & A with our Moombahtonista
-Biography
-Discography
-The almighty EXCLUSIVE!

INTRO:

You know when you get to know Mendez, he really shines as a person so passionate and genuine about his love for music. He is a really sensitive and kind dude once you get beyond his tough exterior.

Within the scene, for me, he has possibly done most for pushing “Moombahcore”, after Munchi.  With his El Cuco Recordings label, which he set up last year, he has done a marvellous job of pushing Moombahcore to more prominence with some of his releases from dudes like UFO, Bro Safari, Sluggo, Pickster & Melo & Le Doom:

Here’s some of his more recent “Official” label releases:

And he’s had so many more since, just check out his Soundcloud pages for an update on all his label’s free and official releases.

However, he’s not only great at spotting great new talent and releasing it on his label but he is also a mighty fine producer himself as some of these tracks will testify:

But he’s not just a Moombahcore head, Frank has a real understanding for music that emotionally touches you and I highly respect the fact that he doesn’t just go for the most obvious stuff either:

And here’s his most recent release:

MP3 PACK: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?4i36nhnirydp5h5
WAV PACK: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?xwvsssbmewuknxu
MP4 VIDEO PACK: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?xn99jw8x1362exp

So as you can hear, this is a mighty impressive catalogue of work and I for one feel that he doesn’t get as much credit or praise as he truly deserves for the contribution he has made and continues to make to this scene in such a short space of time.

He is not just one of the most passionate Moombahtonista’s but he is also one of it’s most unique musical personalities too.  Hence, further reason for shining the light on him as “THE MOOMBAHTONISTA”.

THE Q&A:

GB: What was the first Moombah track you “heard” and how did it make you feel?

FM: Man, I’m pretty sure it was some weird shit my friend Lex One was showing me. He asked me what I thought of “Moombahton”. I pretty much had no clue. But honestly Firepower Munchi Remix and Heartbreak’s King Kong sold me on the vibe, Pickster and Melo’s formerly known as Fat Booty tune took me to the next level.

GB: What was the first Moombah track you made & when did you make it and why?

FM: Funny thing about that, my first Moombahcore tune was the John B – Brostep Wagon Blues almost a year ago. Seeing that I came from the dnb/industrial world, I picked a friend’s track to “edit”. Good thing too with all the nonsense drama that moombah x dnb comp brought about. It was blogged immediately by one of your guest writers Walmer. The love and support plus some heart felt rambling from nibitto inspired me to continue. Next came Caderas with my label partner Sluggo which to our surprised was featured on Mad Decent’s round up the week we posted it. El Cuco Recordings was formed by like minded artists, the rest is making history….and I couldn’t be more grateful.

GB: How do you see the future for the Moombahton scene.

FM: Moombahton is still very fresh and new to the masses. It may feel like an overnight sensation but its mostly in our hearts at the moment. But hold tight , these rhythms are infectious and people can not help but be moved by them. Fans are growing worldwide , its way more accessable than most forms of modern electronic dance. Let’s face it, ladies love moombah, the rest shall acquire the taste soon enough. I have to remind myself to play older tunes that made me fall in love with Moombah, just cause they may be older tunes for you and I , doesn’t mean they’re not new for the crowds we’re playing for. This music took hold of me heart and soul. I honestly have found my calling at these tempos. I take pride in being unique and showing my roots. Moombahton is and will continue to grow. I am so thankful to see and hear so many of my peers charting and gaining support by legends in the scene. Blogs like GB and others, too many to list without forgeting some, (I love and am grateful for each one of you mother fuckers) have a vast collection of the history about the scene as well as free music. All these factors can only push things forward. ¡Viva Moombahton!
