Shlohmo mix

I find some of this hip hop going around, this so-called LA Sound, can be a bit soft and weak sometimes... Shlohmo must have read my mind. Instrumental hip hop with a much needed dose of distortion. It does stray into dubstep territory but doesn't miss a beat. The electric fuzz layering the music works perfectly with whatever beats he's throwing behind it. Another week, another new favourite for the year. Get on it.

From Mary Anne Hobbs Experimental 28th of January, 2010.

1. Shlohmo — Tomato Squeeze Shlohmo Remix
2. Shlohmo — Glue Stick
3. Shlohmo — VOR/oFF
4. Shlohmo — Brown Note Research
5. Shlohmo — Garbage

Emika mix

From the 21st of January comes the first truly great MAH Experimental mix of the year. Emika's first ever mix apparently and the main thing that stands out is the thick atmosphere that punctuates it. This might have something to do with the fact that Emika is a sound designer - or some such profession. If you're into thick dark sounds with no "evil" in sight then make sure you check this.

Emika is signed to Ninja Tune which according to this track list, has become plural..

1. Emika — Drop The Other (Scuba’s Vulpine Mix) Ninja Tunes
2. Beast — Out Of Control (Emika Remix) Ninja Tunes
3. Emika — Double Edge (2nd EP release) Ninja Tunes
4. Emika — Double Edge (DJ Pinch Remix) Ninja Tunes

Burnkane Mix for MUSICBOX™ / Diveristy FM

I discovered this guy from listening to the samples on the Planet Mu website and I was instantly impressed with the production and his ability to get something totally new from the dubstep template - it's still spawning so many awesome sounds! I bought the recordmp3 but only listened to it a few times. Listening the other day I was wondering how his other stuff was going to sound. So I went and found this mix. Not the most interesting story but the result is you lot getting some more music.

From the Musicbox show on Diversity FM, 10 December 2009.

Burnkane - Don't You Think Its Time
Burnkane - Never Break Your Heart
Burnkane - Honey Jar
Burnkane - Screaming Heart
Burnkane - You Left Me Burnkane - Dodgyoof (Dluded Track Remix)
