So, a month or so ago I said something about a free EP…well, now I’m delivering! I decided to give these three tunes away in thanks to the fans out there that continue to support me, even through all the genre changes I go through. I feel like I have A.D.D. when it comes to writing music – I just can’t stay focused on one particular genre. Well, these three tunes are no exception. I suppose the word for this style would be ‘Drumstep’ – but all three tunes have moments where it’s running along like a Drum ‘n’ Bass.
I’m not the best when it comes to describing my tunes, but if you’re familiar with my sound, you’ll recognize the unique take I put on them. Slightly influenced by NeuroFunk, Dubstep, Drum ‘n’ Bass, and Glitch, and still retaining a bit of that dark atmosphere I love to use.
Please help support and share this with your friends, blog, facebook pages, and other social media outlets.
You can now grab this release for free on Addictech.com!
Well, the day has finally arrived! My latest EP featuring, some really good remixes by DJ Hidden, +verb, HavocNdeeD, and TZR + Press is out. I’m stoked to finally get this one out, as we had some delays, but pushing forward we managed to get this one loose into the wild!
Big thanks goes out to the guest artists who created some amazing remixes, and of course, to all the fans who’s support continues to motivate me throughout the years.

An old friend of mine from “back-in-the-day” just released a new album, free to download, but donations always appreciated. I’ve been jamming out to it at work today, and I’m lovin’ it. Glitching, dynamic, aggressive, fun, and just plain dope. If you like IDM, glitch, and experimental music, then this album is for you. If you like good music, then this album is for you. If you like to have FUN, then this album is for you.

LU10 Records has a new one dropping on Feb 20th on beatport.com. 8bit vibes coupled up with some wild bass drops round out this release from Dubsective. This is the first time I’ve heard of the artist, but I’m diggin some of the sounds on this pack of tunes. Nine total tracks fill out this release, and I have to say, it’s definitely worth your time to check out.
My favorite tune on the release by far is “Clive Is Not Alright” – The bassline reminds me of the darker neuro style dnb basslines I grew to love over the years.
As a bonus, grab this freebie from the label!
BoomBox consists of two versatile producers, DJs, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and longtime friends Russ Randolph and Zion Rock Godchaux. Together they develop an electronic blend of vintage Rock and Blues made to move dance floors while incorporating their signature Backbeat, Psychedelia and Funky House sounds. Applying a multi-track platform, they are free to create their hybrid style on the fly with a rhythm that moves fans and opens them up to Godchaux and Randolph’s overall vision. Derived from the rich musical history of Muscle Shoals, AL, to the psychedelic rock and underground electronic scenes of the west coast, their unique approach can only be achieved by the blending of sound and culture.
For over a decade, ill-esha has been an integral part of the North American electronic scene. Beginning as a vocalist, she soon added MCing and DJing to her repertoire, creating a dynamic and unique live show which has headlined alongside artists such as Andy C, Klute, Dieselboy, Vibesquad, LTJ Bukem, Tipper, T-Power & De La Soul. She has performed across North America, Europe and Asia; in clubs, at festivals, and even on TV shows on MTV Canada and the CBC.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, ChrisB was immersed in Westcoast flavor since day one. Drawn to music and art from an early age, Chris grew up always having an instrument in his hands. Although new to production, his obsessive musical passion is palpable in the deep and sensual soundscapes he meticulously weaves. Boldly exploring vast melodic realms full of hypnotic textures and a heavy dose of emotionally-resonant driving bass, his high energy live performances never fail to inspire each person in the audience. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he is utterly unafraid to toss aside the crutch of ‘brute-force’ sonic assaults and instead relies only on his brilliant melodic compositions. Chris’s sound reflects a developed musicality not often associated with the bulk of contemporary electronic music.
This one came into my inbox the other day, and I found it quite interesting. I don’t understand Spanish, but from the words of the producer, here is what he has to say: “..it tells a big story of earth awareness and third world revolution..”
K-Lix is a Guatemalan artist, and I’m diggin’ his style on this glitchy dubstep remix.

Fent Plates’ latest from Rob Sparx is sure to please. Broke Feat. Roqqert is a DEEP dubstep tune with enough soul to fill a canyon. Smooth vocals flow alongside a tight drum groove and some serious chest rattling basslines. This is the type of dub I wish was being played out more in my town. The follow up tune, Try To Remember, is no less spectacular than the former. The vocals from Dee are lovely and elegant as the glide along with the soft pads and melodies. If you need a tune for your ‘love makin’ playlist, look no further than Try To Remember.
One solid release from Rob Sparx and I definitely recommend it. Check the clip below of Broke and be sure to pick this one up at the following locations.
