Do you like free stuff? How about free music? Ya, I do to – and so does mr. +verb from Flagstaff, Arizona. If you’re not a member of glitchhopforum.com you’re probably missing the train on the new, and free, downloadable album that +verb has put together for his fans. Have no fear, I’m here to sort you out with the links and details – but really, you should head over to GHF and register as a user.

On ‘Moments’ – Adam John delivers an EP of deep glitched out beats that are emotive and inspiring. Each track on ‘Moments’ draws on a strong sense of mood and circumstance. ‘Tear This Up’ is a midtempo breakbeat roller with dissonant atmospherics and strong leads, while ‘Fog’ & ‘Patience’ take the listener into downtempo IDM with more emphasis on tonal atmospherics, while ‘Fall In’ is a standout track on the EP with it’s vocal led groove, almost chaotic synthesis and large pulsating basslines. ‘Moments’ is an emotive Journey, enjoyed by those ready to be moved.
Adam John – Perhaps better known by his DnB alias Kid Kryptic, and as head of Drum & Bass label, Theoretic Records, Adam ﬁrst released his disturbing brand of stuttering stomps on the notorious darkstep/breakcore label Fear Records in 2002. Its success was soon followed by material for Killing Sheep, Hardline, Evol Intent Recordings and the “Get Up” bootleg through Camouﬂage UK. Soon Adam dove into other bass-heavy genres such as dubstep and glitch hop, ﬁnding a world of fresh sounds on the more experimental end of the EDM spectrum. 2008 and 2009 saw his ﬁrst releases with a variety of hard-hitting indie labels around the nation, including Tuff Love Dubs, Filthy Digital, Shift Recordings, Darkstep.org, Adversion and Zardonic Recordings.

I’ve finished up another bootleg that I’m giving away for free. Haven’t done one in awhile so I figured I dig into my acapellas and see what’s good. I’ve always been a fan of Nate Dogg, maybe some of you remember my Get Up remix that came out on Camouflage UK a few years ago.
Well here is another one, enjoy!

Recently I’ve been spending more time with Ableton (still need to buy version eight) and I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. Most likely, I’ll discontinue using Reason as I’m finding Ableton allows me to do so much more. There are still some techniques in reason I like, but I’m not into the sound engine at all. Maybe the new “Record” software will be better.
In any case, I’ve uploaded a new tune called “Fog” that I made entirely in Ableton Live 7. I’ve been meaning to spend more time working on experimental tunes / glitch hop music. Fog, is my most recent adventure back in after working on dubstep for the last 5 months. The E.P. I’m working on will probably feature more sounds along the glitch hop lines, but I also have a dubstep track or two I’ll throw in.
Since the idea of the E.P. is to showcase a change and versatility in my style, I’m trying to build a flow that starts off rather mellow and progresses to something heavier and a bit darker. My moods change constantly and the E.P. will represent that change through my music.
So have a listen to Fog and enjoy! It’s a bit mellow, has some slightly aggressive synths working around moody keys and glitchy drum work. I still haven’t decided if this one is going on the E.P. or not, but I’ll know more as I finish up more work.
