CULP - TUNA



Hot fucking DAMN. CULP just dropped an anvil of a beattape. Some of the hardest, grimiest beats I think I've heard so far. Your ears will need a shower after hearing this.

It took one track for me to know that this'll be in heavy rotation for a while.

Shlohmo - Mary Anne Hobbs BBC Radio 1 Mix

Just did a 15 minute mix for Mary Anne Hobbs' show on BBC Radio 1. It aired a few nights ago (1/27). You can check the rewind on the Radio 1 site (for the next week only) and download my mix directly right hurr. That's a real picture of me with Mary Anne too.

Dropa - Sloppyy Seconndd




The homie Dropa just dropped another dope beat tape full of grimy psychadelic hip hop goodness available over at Breakfast Of Champions Records. Make sure to peep that Sun Spot 1 joint (track 6)! My pick of the moment. And if you're feelin the sounds, there's a lot more where that came from... dude's other downloads are nothing to scoff at. Give it a listen.

Cop Sloppyy Seconndd Here.

Electric Egypt - Impressions Of The Inexpressible Invisible


A free Electric Egypt download is now available on Dublab. Beautifully haunting kalimba chops and nothing more. Great recording.

Download it here. Buy his album, Impressions of the Inexpressible Invisible, here.

Dublab:
Electric Egypt has returned to the urban world momentarily to fill us in on the mystic secrets he absorbed while traveling “way out there.” He gives us the gift of this brief kalimba expression as a teaser of the amazing things that will surely follow. In fact what’s already here is quite amazing. His album Impressions Of The Inexpressible Invisible is out now through Moamoo/Art Union in Japan.

LA Weekly:
Shlohmo
Just 20 years old, Friends of Friends–signed Shlohmo has already dropped the year's first great beat record with "Shlohmoshun Deluxe," a triumph of found sound and adamantine beats that earned him an invite on Mary Anne Hobbs' program. Essential release: Shlohmoshun Deluxe (Friends of Friends, 2010).

Four Tet - There Is Love In You


Possibly my favorite producer ever, Four Tet, has just released his new album, "There Is Love In You." On first listen, it's much more drony than past albums. Far more meditative and loop based, a whole lot less going on. Not at all in a bad way. Kieren is still a fucking BOSS. Take a listen for yourself. Fucking love the album cover.


you can also cop the Four Tet Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. Way more dance oriented than his other stuff.

Might be playing the Terrorbird Noise Pop fest with him too! Not confirmed yet, but I hope we're playing the same day. If so, you can be sure that my shit will no longer be in my bowels.

New Yoga







I met Jeff Joyal from New Yoga this past halloween up at Bard College. I was hammered and dressed like Wayne Campbell, but I had remembered checking out his visual/music stuff before. I just recently came upon LIZARD VISION on Skymall and had to put it up.


Its a bit different then what we usually post on WDIC, no Dilla vibes or nothing like that. But its some spaced out lo-fi weed sounds to keep you from coming down. Its like being in a dunk-tank of codeine.

Religious Girls - Open Your Hearts To Fantasy


Met these dudes a while back when me and Non Epic played a show at their house in Oakland. I've been semi obsessed with their music since I saw them play in their garage and pour paint all over their drums and bang the shit out of them til there was paint everywhere. They have a pretty interesting set up too. No guitars or bass, just synths, samplers, mics running through effects boxes, and a lot of drums.

Well they finally dropped a mini album. It's $5, and worth every penny if you think it's as good as I do.

Here's some nice videos of theirs as well:




Jonah Christian - Beats, Samples and Life




My good homie Jonah Christian just released a free EP on some smooth, meditative, and loungy type of vibes. Perfect for lingering in bed on a Sunday like today. I suggest burning one to this and listening to the rain. Maybe light a candle or two, ha. Big ups Jonah!

DJ Dials - Eyes Closed mix


Dials super rainy day mix. Smoke one or two to this while you're all warm and dry inside and it's all shitty and wet outside.
"it was raining yesterday and i made a really epic "rainy day mix" of like, ambient stuff and gregorian chants, video noises, hiss, fuzz, lots of piano, guitar, reverb, organic and electronic textures, blah blah blah."
