Ok, so I follow a few other local bloggers on facebook and came across a track posted by the pretty decent adamNOTeve from two guys, Raion and VanOi. Called ‘Zosma’, it’s full of everything. This is a track that manages to remain consistent the whole way throughout, but still gives you the feeling that you’ve heard perhaps 4 or 5 tracks in one.
It’s bass heavy and perhaps even a little dubsteppy (and no, we don’t usually post dubstep/bass music). But man, this is really fucking cool. I also know that VanOi is only 16 – not sure how old Raion is, but man, to be producing such funk driven stuff at that age, pretty much in the bag.
Alan Wilkis. Longtime readers of maamf should be familiar with this dudes work. Percussive heavy producer who just manages to change a track enough to make it his own. And a big maamf crush.
He’s had his way with Fenech Soler’s track Demons and, like usual, has percussed it up. He’s also got a bit of a dubstep feel going with this one (not big fat doomy dubstep, but in terms of the groove, it’s a bit dubstep).
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this remix is the fact that it’s not as bright and party song as his earlier remixes. I dig this heaps. A man gotta diversify. And diversify he does.
This is a bit of an official remix too – you can order a limited edition 10″ vinyl of the Demons single complete with the Wilkis remix and a remix from Jokers of The Scene. You can check that out here.
Sometimes my itunes playlist will go off on a tangent.
We get sent some pretty diverse stuff…and whilst I don’t think we’ve posted any dubstep sorta stuff, never say never.
There’s a bar in the city called Workshop who only seems to ever play dubstep. DJs always got some really crazy stuff going on…and i think i might like it!
Which brings me to Clever Bunny. These guys push the dub boundaries a bit I must add. They’ve almost got a bit of a reggae/jazz/hip hop feel to them, especially with some of the drum grooves. They cite a pretty eclectic list of influences: James Blake, Caribou, Loops Haunt.
The guys have a new album coming out soon called See Thru Pill. Below, you can check out two of the tracks below.
