Last month, we heard that The 2 Bears will be releasing their debut album on DFA records on the 30th of January, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. The highly anticipated release will feature some of my favorite tracks of last year including ‘Be Strong,’ ‘Bear Hug,’ and their newest single just released this week, ‘Work.’ The ‘Work’ EP is incredible. Not only is the original an embodiment of all that I love about The 2 Bears, but it also comes along with top-notch remixes from Toddla T, Oliver $, Supabeatz, and Franky Rizardo. Stream below and go grab the whole thang on iTunes now.
• The 2 Bears – Work (Maribou State Remix) √+
Following the conception of their Heretic imprint, our friends at Rebel Magazine have just sent over their first compilation. Showcasing 12 tracks from 12 different artists including Mike Gao and Maribou State, the release features an impressive array of post-dubstep, tropical, and beats driven old school cuts. Best of all, the entire compilation is available for Free Download via the Rebel Mag Bandcamp so there’s really no excuse not to swing by and grab yourself a copy.
If you’re in LA this evening, Rebel Magazine are throwing a launch party for the Heretic release at the Ronin Gallery in Silverlake. It kicks off at 10pm and goes ’til 2 – Here’s a link to the Facebook event.
