This EP is seven tracks of big, brutal, gangster ass reggae vibes. Melding dub, reggae, acid, trap, electro and everything in between; David Heartbreak stretches his musical roots with an incredibly diverse and engaging sonic pallet. Perfectly suited for OWSLA, who just keeps supplying us with the goodies this week.
There’s something viciously nostalgic about french house producer Panteros666 latest LP Hyper Reality. This new album released by one of my favorite labels, Bromance Records, seamlessly blends 90′s hardcore rave samples and dark house vibes, unquestionably inducing you into a convulsion of no return. Hyper Reality converges into a musical concept like no other, there’s no doubt an alien abduction took place and the message is… DESTROY!
Panteros666 aka Victor Watel has spent years developing his cyber-pscychedelic aesthetic, cleverly molding genres from acid techno to future bass, and even some southern rap influences. Expect drone-type vocal samples, steady bass lines, apocalyptic synths and just an overall invitation to another dimension. Definitely not an album for the faint of heart. Check out the Hyper Reality mini mix and what Panteros666 crafted for his live shows… the future is here!
TGIF! Our good buddy FYOR gave us the exclusive on his new original ‘Bump N Grind’ – a big room monster with an anthemic build into a massive wave of acid stabbing chords. Festival season is around the corner, get after it.
I’m probably going to get a lot of shit for this one. So just as a precautionary disclaimer, I’m not really trying to encompass the infinite realm of what defines “acid” in both musical and personal experience senses of the term. So before you get your panties in a bunch that Phuture isn’t on here or your favorite Plastikman track is missing or one of these doesn’t have an “acid bassline,” just know that I am pulling the typical Burning Man “I don’t know man, you just gotta experience it yourseeeeelf” move and letting you know this is my personal derivative of what, to me, starts to entertain the idea of the drug we like to call “acid.”
Our good buddy Thee Mike B and his pal Dirty Dave have thrown together this absolutely stellar retrospective mix for your listening pleasure. If you’re a fan of dance music (safe assumption, seeing as you’re reading this) then I sincerely hope you’re taking the time to educate yourself on the origins of your favorite music. Whether it be Skrillex, Boys Noize, or Swedish House Mafia (RIP) that is your current flavor of the week, everything has a beginning, and this mix does an excellent job of exploring the origins of what’s currently blasting through your Beats by Dre.
Get the download from the artwork above and peep the track listing after the jump, and check those years behind those songs… I’m sure there are some readers out there who weren’t even born when some of these songs were made, and they sound just as good today as they always have. And don’t forget to stop by The Well’s site to thank them for having the guys put this mix together.
Welcome To The Jungle. Da Rockwilder. New Noise. Robot Rock. What do they all have in common? They’re epic fucking intro songs. If you’re a sucker for a good intro track (and you like Acid Haus) then I got just the thing for you. Night Symmetry‘s newest freebie STS has an amazing gradual build towards all out mayhem that is the defining ingredient for an opening song. If it’s 3AM, the crowd has begun to thin out, your DJ set is just about to start, and only the truly uncivilized are still out and about, throw this on. You won’t regret it.
Bonus surprise. The artwork above is actually a SoundCloud player of Night Symmetry’s new June mix! Get the tracklist after the jump!
