So, it’s been a little while… Between working about 30 hours a week, completing classwork for 5 online classes and 1 on-campus lab, writing for the school paper, and of course keeping up with this little blog here; I managed to squeak up a couple of mixes here and there. One of them is this sweet nugget of downbeat bass-y decadence I like to call Slow and Low, and yes it is a reference to the Beastie Boys because they just rule. The first half of the mix is a bit slower and heavier on the dubstep side. The second half is a bit more upbeat and hails to the trap vibes. As usual though, my mixes always build you up, shake you round and then bring you back down.
Oh, and I apologize for not writing anything lately. I finished up finals with As in all 6 courses (fuck yeah!) but the day that was all over with I got into a wreck while riding my scooter home from work and sprained but wrists. Although I am extremely grateful that was the worst of it. Hopefully I’ll be back to writing soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the mix! Download here.
Yes, it’s a Lorde track, get over it. The real star of this post is my man Flume, given name Harley Streten. If you’re checking out my blog, my guess is you’ve probably heard Flume’s work before. This Australian supernova has been on a non-stop rise for the past two years. His single ‘Sleepless’ with Jezzabell Doran is probably my favorite of his earlier work, although ‘Holdin On‘ surpassed it to take the No. 1 spot on the Aussie indie charts. If you haven’t caught his debut album, what the hell are you waiting for?? Meanwhile, get down with this epic collab with Lorde.
Mizuki (ミズキ, Mizuki) was a chūnin-level shinobi of Konohagakure and a former instructor at the Academy. Or, Mizuki is also Reilly Brown, sick UK dubstep producer. He’s got a lot of 8-bit influence as well. He’s signed to Circus Records and just toured the U.S. alongside Doctor P and Cookie Monsta. Overall, I’m kinda over of heavy grimey bass dubstep, but Mizuki does a good job of keeping up a melody.
I’ll be honest. I haven’t listened to much of this yet. Basically, I’ve been listening to Feed Me’s tracks for a long while. He’s definitely branched out a bit on this album here and the first track I listened to is a testament to that statement. “Love Is All I Got”, Feed Me + Crystal Fighters! Really fun track. As for the rest of the album, I’m still listening… obviously, since it’s Feed Me, there’s going to be plenty of bass and heavy electro. Definitely a lot more vocals than his older stuff. “Ophelia” is another diverse track for Feed Me, but I like how he’s incorporating new sounds.
