#FF063: ‘Ethereal Bassline’
it’s monday, the eleventh of the month of april & we’re back with a new part on the flamboyant five-series.
this time, the features will be slightly different than the usual ones. while we tend to feature more experimental stuff, which we love to mix up with decent r&b, hip hop, future bass, ambient or even classic tunes, we have decided to put a new spectrum to the roster: the omnipresent club music.
while we have featured a slight bit of songs from this genre, like the last part of the ‘peanut pile of freebies’-series, includin’ a decent remix of our beloved producer from the north of europe, ‘Ida Dillan’ or some gems in one of our compilations, we thought: why don’t we dedicate one article to it?
so, we did what we had to do & made a musical endeavor. what we have found was in fact a panoply of melodies, mixed up with raucously-good kick drums, so that it really has been interestin’ to explore more & more.
after a period, we have finally made it & are able to present you our playlist of the week. article sixty-three, it is about time:
1. Moke – SoundError
first song, first serve goes to strasbourg-based full-time prodigy ‘Moke’ & his tune ‘SoundError’.
we stumbled over Edouard’s art over the ‘Top Billin Music’, a helsinki-based label that decided to promote european club music. being part of their ‘Classical Trax’-Compilation, which has been dedicated to the ‘Classical Trax’-collective, we finally made a stop on the aforementioned ‘SoundError’-song.
by representin’ the idea, the meaning of ‘club’, ‘Moke’ did create a tune which you can dance, smile or do that coevally. whether if we’re talkin’ about the profound synth composition or the sleek usage of the kick drums, Edouard will make you forget about the fact that today is already monday.
the track is available, same as the compilation in general, for a small fee of money. all we’d like to say that you’ll definitely dig the idea behind this tenacious release & the fact that more is goin’ to be released.
2.Mayke – Twelve
as we tend to say that we love variety, or better said, versatility, we were doin’ our usual routine with a slight glimpse on other genres too.
so, while we were checkin’ out tunes over tunes, we bumped over this young producer’s site. based in sydney, we’d like to introduce you to the beatmaker ‘Mayke’.
as we were checkin’ out his recent releases, we totally loved the progress that he made the last six months. whether if we’re talkin’ about a catchy melody, trenchant 808s or solipsistic kick drums, ‘Mayke’ is definitely one of those ones to put on your watch list.
so, while we had to make a decision to put one of his tunes on the list, we were checkin’ out ‘Twelve’ again. but why? because it totally represents the project of this stud, whether if we’re talkin’ about the aforementioned synth-composition or the bass line.
be sure to get your copy of this profound instrumental, share some moments with it & send it to your granny.
3.Machinedrum – Take Flight (DBK Remix)
it has been a long time, since we were talkin’ about a creation by LA-based ‘Machinedrum’, whether if we’re talkin’ about a remix or an original. in fact, it gets more interestin’, when someone remixes one of his creations & puts his/her stamp on it.
so, we got our hands on this remix here. created by NYC-based producer & dj ‘DBK’, we had an opportunity or better said, the pleasure to check it out. and yes, ladies and gentlemen, you will not regret it.
our friend from the metropolis took the original, amended it by re-calibratin’ the bass line & addin’ elements, such as the eery-yet-catchy fx’s & vocal chops, so that you definitely need to get yourself a copy. now.
as we usually tend to say that remixes may not represent a glimpse of the original idea, we’d like to say that this one here totally has elements in it & still can be seen as a solid & solipsistic production by Drew.
so, do us a favor & give a shoutout to him on twitter. check out the other releases on his soundcloud as well, because there are gems waitin’ to be heard by you & you.
4.Hermit – AMV (prod. by Jade Statues)
next tune is from vancouver-based artist ‘Hermit’. we stumbled over Isiah’s account around some days ago. what we have found was a broad variation of music, whether if we’re talkin’ about hip hop, cloud rap or trap.
so, while we were checkin’ out his recent release, the ‘Mountain of Faith’-extended play, we made a stop on track number three, called ‘AMV’.
created by the vancouver citizen & producer ‘Jade Statues’, what you’re goin’ to hear is a sleek instrumental with decent vocals, so that if you have to ‘genre-fy’ it, categorize it as the aforementioned ‘cloud rap’.
as he loves to share stuff, whether with his fan base or with newbies, Isiah released this mini-album for free. but, that does not mean that you shouldn’t donate some $$$ to his project. as we’d like to say that artists should be always supported, who love & live with music, we’d like to give this man here a slot to present his perception & concept of art.
shout out to all the featured artists on the ep & of course, to Isiah, we’re definitely sure we’re goin’ to hear from you in the future.
5.Tomás Urquieta – Exiled (Korma Remix)
last song of today is the remix that did not let us to finish this article sooner. why? press play & you’ll understand that.
whether if we’re talkin’ about a catchy melody or omnivorous kick drums, this tune or better, this remix here needs to be mentioned. immediately.
created by seattle-based producer & fellow friend of the solar site, ‘Korma’, what you’re goin’ to hear is the impeccable example in which way music is nowadays evolvin’.
released as an exclusive on ‘Insert’, a london-based blog-label-hybrid, you can listen to this tune on their soundcloud-acc. originally created by chilean-artist ‘Tomás Urquieta’, it has been quite interestin’ to check both version out.
while the original tends to have longer build ups & different transitions to bass line one & two, ‘Korma’s reinterpretation was more about fusin’ his idea with Urquieta’s, whether if we’re talkin’ about the solipsistic re-interpretation of the bass lines or the profound usage of kick drums.
bein’ part of Urquieta’s ‘Manuscript’-extended play, you can get your copy of the remix & original for a small sum of money, but we’re not goin’ to try to convince you, let the music do this job.
