What could be more entertaining than the recordings of a grown man twiddling with some nobs ?
Nice one party people, see you at HushHush!
Now then now then, i will keep this short and sweet, as its still quite early in the morning and i’ve only had one cup of coffee!
It seems our guest’s for this weekends DONT PANIC have been building up quite an army these days, and now they have Ninja’s on their side .
As we told you a few days ago, their new music label SKANKY PANKY is bringing the cream of the uk bass sounds to everybodys ears, and now guesting for the “BIGGER BOYS” on the long time running Ninja Tune radio show “SOLID STEEL” where they are straight pimping the big whumps of GLITCH HOP / WONKY.
sixAM come equipt with an arsenal of relentless bass guaranteed to make you nod your head clean off, and now with the thumbs up of Ninja Tune’s SOLID STEEL SHOW these boys are set to dominate the universe (well, something like that anyway!).
I could go on waffling about these chaps all day,but i will just let you listen for yourself, one warning though,make sure you have something to hold on to when the bass kicks in ‘cos it might make your legs go all wibberly wobbly!

Right, im gonna go and have another brew, byeeee!
Glitch (or Wonky/Boogie/Lazer Bass/etc…) has been gaining momentum for the past couple of years now with influences including all sorts from downbeat, jazz, hip-hop, acid and dubstep to the noise your old Commodore 64 made when it threw a fit. It also seems to have collected as many genre names as there are producers (but don’t call it aquacrunk or you’ll make Flying Lotus cry, and also it sounds stupid).
Tracks can range from the relatively laid back, spaced-out hip-hop of people like The Gaslamp Killer up to the heavier, 8-bit influenced tracks by Rustie, edIT and the like. Infact the only thing that really links alot of the music together is a general sense of off kilter head-fuckery brought on by off beat drums and synth rhythms.
So, if you think that sounds like it’s up your alley (or you already know full well it is) then here’s some free tracks from recent glitch releases we like for you to wrap your ears around:
This one, taken from L.A DJ/Producer Sugarpill’s new Flow Goggles EP, is more on the wobbly side of things with plenty of low bass and dubstep influenced beats. Get the free track from his site here or go here to buy the full EP at Juno. You can also check his blog for plenty of other tracks and mixes.
A more laid back sound for this one, good end of the night music for when you’re feeling slightly more, er, “fragile”. You have to sign up to the mailing list here to get the free download but you can also check out the streaming version of the full EP while you’re there and order the 12″ vinyl which includes a digital download as well.
The Error Broadcast label is easily my favourite recent find, surely in the running for the ‘most generous bastards’ award. They offer free, low quality (192kbps, so not that low) versions of a good number of their albums, along with free beat tapes and mixes. This particular gem is a collection by Russian glitch producers that ranges from chilled out to “Oh my god my NES is going to explode”. Grab the download here or follow the links to buy the high quality version featuring extra tracks.
Hexstatic were kind enough to send us over a link to this new A/V mashup/remix they’ve put together in collaboration with Akira Kiteshi for a ninja themed show in London on 2nd October. It’s got bassy, glitchy audio noises and ninjas dressed in pink, what more could you possibly ask for in life?
Here is something nice for a Monday, a free glitchy thing from Mr Fox. He has been pushing various electronic noises for many a year now in Wigan and although his name indicates otherwise he is both Human and pretty Smooth. However, Smooth Human doesnt have the same ring to it…
Grab the track HERE with your mighty clicking finger.
Also avaliable is a mix he recorded last year as part of the Brainfood collective. Lots of quality to be found / heard within. Just right click HERE and download to your hearts content.

With the weekends shenanigans out of the way I thought it was time to tell you about this crispy mixtape I did the other day. Theres all sorts of beeps and bwarps on there, some old, some new, and some that are middle-aged going through some sort of identity crisis.
