buster williams – noble ego (1975)
sketches pt.4 is an hark back to the big-room style that craig basically owned from ‘circa the workout’ through to the early 00s, with no-nonsense, tom-heavy drum programming, dramatic strings and immaculately squelched synth chords.
detroit, techno, deep house master and legend, kenny dixon jr aka moodymann released an 8 track ep entitled picture this. the mahogani music‘s owner releases this at scion a/v, for free. it’s very, very, very unusual to see, or ear moodymann releasing digital tracks and on top of that giving them away as a marketing move. anyways i’m sure that at some point a physical release will be pressed. for now we can all enjoy this memorable goodie.
through virtue of his unique and almost inexplicable influence on the dubstep community, boddika introduces bass-addicted cock jockeys to the wonders of the screaming 303. and the raw, unholy power of the relentless 808 cowbell. highly recommended!!!
alienwares and laser-guided stares, “swamped” in 808 subs the size of the moon. out on swamp81
on the flip side, nhar, the other half of correspondant turns the darkness into light with for me, his best remix to date. if the original is for 5 am, nhars remix is for 5pm, when the sun still shines and its warmth still remains.
